My Love For Murad

Since my pre-teens I have struggled with acne. Over the years I have taught myself some ways of covering it up and definitely had my share of sampling different products. I even resulted in trying different contraceptives with hopes it would help. 

Over the past 12 or so years I have tried proactive, clean and clear, body shop, st. ives, benzaclin gel, spectro gel, @mosphere, neutrogena, avon, and homemade remedies. I’m not at all saying these product don’t work for some people, they just didn’t work in the long run for me. Some products I have used, worked great for the first bit and then it’s almost like my skin got used to it or something because my breakouts would return or even get worse sometimes. 

In my search for a skincare line that will cater to my confusing skin, I came across Murad. Eager to try something that will actually work, I decided to try the 30 day trial kit sold at Sephora. The kit is $35 (before taxes) it comes with a cleanser, moisturizer, toner, acne spot treatment and exfoliating gel. Immediately after just one day my skin felt smoother, moisturized and less irritated. After just one week half of my breakouts had disappeared. I was amazed, never has a product I have tried ever made such a huge difference. Once my 30 day trial kit was used up I went and bought full sizes of the moisturizer, toner and cleanser. I still have the acne treatment and exfoliating gel that I use from the trial kit, a little goes a long way. I have been using this skin care regime for approximately two months now and I am totally in love. Never have I ever used anything that actually makes my skin feel so great and show results. 

When I get a large pimple that is under the skin, the kind that hurts really bad. I put the spot treatment on for a couple days and it never surfaces! Amazing! 

Genetically I have large pores, and blackheads are something I always struggle with to keep at bay. I noticed after the first three weeks my black heads looked worse, because they were all clearing out. I exfoliated a lot, I mean every other day for a little while and now they are better than they have ever been. I still have large pores because that truly never goes away but they are clear which helps them to be less noticeable. 

I encourage you to go and give this product a try if you are also dealing with acne. I still get breakouts and stuff, but this product keeps everything under control. 

I look forward to trying more products from this line of skin care. It has done wonders for my skin. Any questions please don’t hesitate to ask in the comments below.
