Murad's Anti-Aging Acne Regimen Saves the Day

Murad is a skin care line that I'd heard fantastic things about and yet had never tried before.  So when I was sent some Murad products to test a few weeks ago, imagine my surprise and excitement.

Murad was founded by Howard Murad MD, a certified dermatologist, a number of years ago.  He "is widely acknowledged as one of the world's foremost authorities on skin health and his pioneering efforts include creation of the first line of doctor branded skincare." (Check out for additional details.)  Not only does he continue to create miracle products but still actively treats patients too.

When I received my products in the mail, I was thrilled to see the Murad Anti-Aging Acne Regimen in the box.  The great thing about this little set is that it comes with all four anti-aging products: Time Release Acne Cleanser, Acne & Wrinkle Reducer, Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 20 and the Acne Spot Treatment.  Needless to say, I couldn't wait to get home and try them out.  After a bit more research, I learned that:

  • Time Release Acne Cleanser (Step 1) - Super gentle, low foaming cleanser that improves skin's appearance by delivering a sustained release acne treatment and optimizing hydration to restore suppleness.
  • Acne & Wrinkle Reducer (Step 2) - A soft light cream that reveals a clean, more youthful complexion by clearing congested pores and neutralizing acne-causing bacteria and diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 20 (Step 3) - A lightweight, non-greasy moisturizer that improves skin's appearance by fighting premature aging through advanced UV protection and minimizing blemishes.
  • Acne Spot Treatment (Step 2, after the reducer but before moisturizer) - A light gel that promotes immediate healing of blemishes by delivering targeted acne medication and providing on the spot relief.
I have been using this line for just over two and a half weeks now and am blown away but how clear my skin looks.  PLUS, I haven't even had to use the spot treatment once.  My skin is glowing, my redness has faded and even my pimple scarring seems to be disappearing.  I am also so happy to find an acne treatment that actually promotes anti-aging.  I really think that by combining the two, (acne treatment PLUS anti-aging) Murad is ten steps ahead of the competition.

I will, without a doubt, be buying these products myself and knowing that they'll carry me through prime wrinkle years is a huge bonus.  If you have problem skin, I highly recommend this line.

Have you tried this line before?  What are your thoughts?



  1. I got some samples when I was on vacation and they are really good!

  2. Sounds like some amazing products!! I haven't heard of them before, but I will check them out! xo

  3. Never tried this line, but it sounds fabulous!

    Glad you found something that works for you!! :)

  4. That's awesome. I love that the products treat adult acne AND fine lines! I can't think of another dual action product line that treats two such (seemingly)opposite problems. I'll have to check them out myself!

  5. I keep hearing about Murad and think it's about time I gave it a go. Thanks for the advice

  6. I'm loving my Murad as well, and it's almost time for me to do my full review. The only downfall for me is that it hasn't helped at all with my monthly breakout and I was so bummed about that. :(

  7. Thanks so much for the comments ladies! It's a fabulous line and I was actually blown away that I haven't broken out once since using it. Definitely something I'll continue with.

    @Mandy...that sucks lady. Did you like the spot treatment?


  8. My sister used to use Murad and also love it, but it's out of her budget right now. I love that it also has the anti-aging component! Very cool!

  9. My wife used Murad products even before we got married, and I think it works well on her. Until know, I still can't see any wrinkles on her face. Do they also have something like this for men?

  10. A unique lip gloss available in a wide variety of colours that can create a high gloss, glass-like finish or a subtle anti aging moisturizer can offers many Celebrity transformations, plus tips on how to get the perfect red lips, the best skin care for your age and more.


Thanks for the love!...XO Christina
