If it isn't broken, why fix it? 
VERY disappointed that after +18 years of usage the Exfoliating Acne Treatment Gel is no more. My skin has been flawless, the anti aging effect is fantastic, and people comment on this all the time.
This socalled replacemnt product only has half the active ingredient and yet comes in half the size at a higher price.

I have used the Exfoliating Acne Treatment Gel for almost 20 years and love the product. I believe that this new Acne & Wrinkle Reducer replaces it. Having recently purchased it since I couldn't find the previous product I have observed that like everything it is a small amount, 1.4 fl oz less, creamy looking not clear in the bottle and has an odor that I'm not crazy about. Fortunately it does go on clear and the odor is only for the moment. I am disappointed that you have discontinued the Exfoliating Acne Tx Gel.

Makes face glow 
I have had occasional acne since I was in high school and always search for products that treat it without over drying. Now, in my mid 30s, I'm aware that fine lines are beginning to show. Wonderful to have a product tackling both successfully. But, my very favorite part is it gives my face a healthy glow that I love! I cannot go a day without it. Either under foundation or just moisturizer, this gel makes my face more alive. It wakens the face....magic!

Finally!!! Helps my acne AND smooths my lines!! 
I would have never purcahsed Murad had it not been for Sephora giving me a sample of this wonderful product! I'm just too cheap to spend the money if I don't know if it will help (have fought acne all my life and really have never found the "IT" product, but now I have#. This is amazing stuff. It's not too harsh, even thought I don't have sensitive skin. And it doesn't dry out my skin. I'm able to see a difference in wrinkles and just a clearer complextion in as little as 10 days. It doesn't take much and lasts #for the money#. thumbs up for sure!

Better than expected 
In desperation I entered "acne and wrinkle" on the sephora site and knew that no one could address both my concerns. It seems there is a kit for acne, and a separate kit for wrinkles with each line; and the kits work great for each issue. But, how does a forty year old with occasional acne treat their skin? Acne regimens dry out the wrinkles and make you look older. Wrinkle treatments usually increase the oil production it seems, so what to do? AHA! Murad, you are the best! Thank you for helping me! I still get occasional breakouts, but they are manageable. And, I am getting compliments on my face. My face looks healthier. I now want to try your spot fader for all the sun spots. I am going to treat myself soon!

Know the answer? Answer this question
A: An appropriate moisturizing sunscreen, even on a cloudy day, is very important to help protect your skin. Additionally sun exposure can also encourage pigmentation, scarring skin discoloration after a blemish has healed.
