I have suffered from Spots since I was 16 years old and i the 15 years have tried every single acne treatment under the sun including perscription antibiotics.
With out sounding unrealistic, Murad is the ONLY treatment which works. I was shocked by how well this worked.
I resided to the fact that I was always going to have lots of red angry spots which I could not cover up and just thought I would have to live with it.
I saw Murad in Boots and thought I'd try it as it was new. The price scared me as it is very pricey but I'd pay twice this to have it as it is so good.
After the first week of using it my skin was moisturised and felt lighter.
After a month my skin stopped having such angry break outs like before and was a bit more managable.
I used this with the recommended treatmant creams too and combined it really helped me.
I still use it one year on and would not be without it. I never thought I would find anything to work but this really does, it is amazing.
Now I have more confidence and feel better about myself. I can't look in the mirror still but that is just learnt behaviour from years of bad skin. I do go out with out concealer on now though so things are better. I still have the odd Spot of two but instead of twenty spots creeping up there is only one odd one. If treatment out on when the spot is felt under the skin then it rarly breaks the surface.
This really is a wonderous product and I can not tell you have good it is and how well it works. If you have acne and think nothing will help please give this product a go. It is pricey but so worth it I can explain!!
Over the years i have used an unbelieveable amount of cleansers to help my spot prone skin and none have ever worked as good and for as long as this one does. I can honestly recommend it to especially young people like myself with spot prone skin. Its so easy to use with a large size bottle which is great for the money and lasts at least 8-10 months using as directed. It lathers very well mixed with warm water, so it really makes you feel like its working, especially with the strong smell but thats a good thing. After a dap dry, your skin feels unbelieveably soft and definetly doesnt leave it dry the next morning like most cleansers do. It reduces the swelling and redness of all spots, making you also feel very refreshed and clean. The effect of this cleanser is almost instant, and within a week even the worst of skins look so much better, like myself. Another benefit is that its great packaging with a strong durable bottle even if it gets wet. The only downside i would personally say is that its a constant thing so it must be used every day otherwise your skin could be prone to spots again.
Well deserved best selling product from Murad in a simple tube that allows for fair control in squeezing the right amount out of the tube; although the cap may become loose with time, this is not too big an issue.
This cleanser has a refreshing scent (perhaps lemony, perhaps minty; not surprising given its list of ingredients really). It also provides a cooling sensation the skin which I personally love since it gives me the feeling of my pores being cleanse deep into their depths (well, as far as pore depths go) but I do acknowledge that it may be slightly irritating to others, particularly around the eye area.
It gives you a pleasant after feel that is not too squeaky dry (as in soap), or too smoothly slippery (as in other cleansing oils). However, if you have dry skin, this may be tad bit too dry for you. The anti-bacterial and botanical properties in this cleanser is said to calm the skin while trichloric acid and salicylic acid effectively reduces acne blemishes, thereby clarifying the skin (and hence the name).
This cleanser certainly works against blackheads, which proves that it does cleanse deep into the skin. I suspect that this would also help in reducing skin troubles including acnes since it will be unblocking the pores which cause such problems. Just to prove this product's effectiveness further, I shall add that if you try washing your powder puff
with this product (not the conventional use, I know), you'll be pleasantly surprised. That's just how clean it gets!
This creates moderate lather; if it doesn't lather sufficiently, try washing your hand with other type of soap/liquid soap and try again.
I bought this products as part of the three-piece Murad kit which promises to ban acne, which contains this cleanser, a little pot of daily shine control gel, and a small tube of gel for targetting specific bad spots.
The cleanser is easy to use, much like any other facewash, just requiring some warm water.
It has a rather antibacterial, clinical smell about it, and the slightly off-yellow colour of the gel is a bit strange, but in a way it made me feel reassured as it convinced me that the cleanser was definitely going to work on my spots!
I found that this cleanser did work really well, especially in conjuction with the other Murad products. When using it twice a day, every day, after two weeks I noticed that my skin seemed a lot less red, and my spots had gone down a lot. New spots also seemed to occur less frequently and go away faster. It does last for a long time- a 250ml bottle has lasted me for months!
