Reviews & Questions
Acne Starter Kit 12 12confused i have been struggling with acne for about 8 years now, my friend told me about murad few days ago and i have been reading reviews and i dont know whether to go further with this product, because i have seen in a lot of comments that if one stops using the product, breakouts will resurface. so if that be the case, i have to use this product all my life? why cant there be a permanent solution to the breakouts instead March 9, 2015Great Im very grateful for this product. The new salicylic acid 0.5% is much better than the old gel. Also, the sulfur treatment is great, much better than benzoyl peroxide. You will see great results, but be patient and use as directed. September 13, 2014TERRIBLE I do not recommend this product at all! I have never written a review for anything but feel so strongly that this does not work I had to share. My face broke out even worse and did not get better I waited and waited but it only got worse and left scars. By the time I realized it was not going to clear up I could not get my money back and to do this day 8 months later they continue charging my card and sending refills even though i have called multiple times and cancelled. August 29, 2014Didn't work for me I'm 19 years old and have been having acne problem for nearly 2 years. One of my friends reckon me this skin care line as she said it worked well for her. So I purchased this kit. The first two/three weeks, these products worked quite well on my skin. But after that, my skin seemed like it got used to these products and continued to get less effective. Now I have full on breakouts on my forehead, cheek and chin area; and these products do nothing for my skin. Besides that, the area around my mouth is really dry. It's quite disappointing! I think I need to stop using these. August 19, 2014
