I am a Skincare Therapist (Esthetican) & I recently had a wild attack of spots that left dark blemishes on my right cheek. For background info I have combination skin and since age 22 my skin has had its ups and downs with episodes of acne on my forehead and right cheek. I am now 28 & I found out about Murad products when I was training to get my Facial Massage and Skincare Certificate. The school I went to used Murad in their salon. I ordered this Exfoliating Acne Treatment Gel to help my blemished right cheek. I have been using it for only 1 week & honestly it has dramatically shrunk the nasty spots I had. Please note this product is very active and first time users please start gradually and a little goes a long way. I have very strong skin so I used it twice a day for 4 days straight. When ever I cleansed my face and followed on with my toner I noticed how good this product is! It literally helped my skin to shed off the dead skin cells because I could see the dry dead skin on the cotton pad after cleansing! Its a great product, the retinol with salicylic and glycolic acids are the key ingredients in exfoliating the skin. I noticed my skin felt a little dry on the parts I applied it, however by proper cleansing, toning and moisturising it works wonders!!
I think people with super sensitive acne prone skin can benefit by getting a sample size to try out first. This Murad product is like an at home chemical peel gentle and super effective enough to use everyday for problem skin, or 3 times a week for those recovering from bad spots who wish to maintain that healthy flawless skin look.
