Murad Acne Treatment and Repair Review

I received 3 wonderful products from Murad. I loved them all and they helped more than any other acne medicine I have ever used in my entire life. I wish I had known about these when I was a teen and when I was pregnant. These products are developed by dermatologists specifically for keeping your face clear of acne, healthy, and beautiful.
2-Treat and Repair
Acne Treatment Concealer
To use: Apply a thin layer on affected area once or twice daily.
I am amazed at this concealer, I really am. Usually when I get a zit or two, I have trouble covering them, even if it isn’t big OR have redness to it. I tried at first (when I was younger) to just cover them up with makeup, but it never worked. The makeup would always let it show through. Other concealers weren’t as good as this one is either.

The reason this one is so good is because it also contains the ingredients to kill the zit rather than just covering it up. So it’s helping to heal AND covering it at the same time.
I don’t get breakouts very much, but when I do- I definitely want this on hand. It’s so small and compact that it can fit inside even the smallest purse or makeup bag. It’s about the size of a lipgloss tube.

The tube contains a lot of concealer because it twists up to reveal more like a lipstick container. This is absolutely the best concealer I have ever used. It doesn’t dry out and goes on smoothly.
This would be perfect for using when you have an unexpected breakout and have someone important to be. Makes it easy to cover the zits, but also contains the medicine to kill the zits instead of just covering them up. I love this!!

I even use this for my under eye circles because you can dab this on and it doesn’t smear or come off. So even parts of my skin that doesn’t have breakouts, I apply this. It is the perfect consistency- not too thin, where it doesn’t cover up zits at all, and not too thick and cakey where it becomes a problem when used with makeup.

Love this product and would definitely be buying this again!

2-Treat and Repair
Exfoliating Acne Treatment Gel
To use: Everyday after cleansing and toning massage evenly over face and neck.
This is a clear liquid gel that goes on after you have already cleaned your face. It is not sticky and doesn’t have a fragrance.

It lasts a long time too. Not even a full pump is more than enough for my entire face and neck. It goes on smoothly and dries quickly.

It comes in a pump action tube which I love. I like it even better because you can turn it to the right to prevent it from coming out without you wanting it to. I don’t know how many times I’ve had pump action tubes to get in or on everything within reach because I’ve absentmindedly thrown it in my purse or makeup bag and it squirt everywhere.

This works wonders with makeup as well. I love being able to wash my face and then put this gel and then the perfecting lotion on, then hide the spots with the concealer, and put the rest of my makeup on.

I think this really helps to prevent clogged pores, and to clear the pores that are clogged. I loved this product, as well as the others that I was sent. This wakes my skin up!

This is perfect for all seasons, but especially for my oily prone skin in the summer months. I have loved using this. I can wake up and wash my face and put this and the perfecting lotion on, a little makeup and I’m ready to go.
Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion - 1.7 oz (50 ml)

Skin Perfecting Lotion
Achieve uniform texture and tone. This ultra-light, oil-free lotion hydrates without leaving an oily residue. Retinol and arnica work together to reduce redness and help prevent clogged pores for a softer, more evenly balanced texture. Retinol and queen of meadow extract penetrate pores to keep them clear Honey extract is toning and tightening Algae extract provides sebum control
To use: Everyday after cleansing and toning massage evenly over face and neck.

This is a creamy white liquid that also has no fragrance. It isn’t greasy or too thin. It’s the perfect consistency to give you the moisture you need for the day without clogging your pores and giving you acne or blackheads.

I have noticed that the size of my pores have completely downsized. The pores in my nose were huge which tended to let me get blackheads a lot. Especially in the summer months I used to fight blackheads with a vengeance with no help from anything I tried.

I not only use this on my face but have been using this to see if it will clear up my Keratosis Pilaris (chicken skin) which only shows up on my thighs. It is shown that 50% of Americans have this but don’t know what it is.

I’ve had it since I was about 12, and didn’t know what it was until a couple of years ago. You would rarely catch me wearing shorts, a short skirt, or a bathing suit. They show up in the sun and look like a bad acne rash but itches.

I have tried some products before that gave me relief and was helping to prevent it, but I was curious whether this would work also. Since it’s designed to perfect the skin, I thought it possibly could help me out.

I stopped all other treatment and just exclusively used this lotion on the “chicken skin”. Within 3 days the size of the bumps went from acne sized bumps to very small pencil tip size. They were also grouped together in patches and were everywhere- now there aren’t very many at all and they are very teeny tiny, so it’s not going to be much longer before they aren’t even visible any longer.

This lotion has left not only my face but my legs so soft and smooth, yet not greasy. Because it doesn’t have a fragrance, this would work wonders for people who have very sensitive skin. I know tons of people who can’t treat their acne on a daily basis because of the over drying effects that most acne treatment gives.

These product are amazing and I loved THEM! I am so glad that I was given the chance to work with Murad. They are an amazing company. I got the products EXTREMELY fast, and customer service was SUPERB. I love everything about this company and their products.

They DID work quickly, just as they said they would. I started seeing results within the first 2-3 uses, which is AMAZING. Who wants blackheads or breakouts at an important event such as a wedding, a big company party, or even just daily? I didn’t and haven’t, but I have never seen anything work so quickly and keep providing protection and treatment as well as these have.
TWO thumbs up from me!
