In middle age I develped acne rosasea. What a nightmare! I tried everything, even a prescription from a dermatologist. Nothing worked! A friend told me to try Murad. I sent for the kit, which contains this spot treatment. A miracle! Within days my skin improved and, in about 2 weeks, my skin was clear. I continue to use the cleanser and the kit system. I never had skin issues as a teen, so now I can truly empathize. The kit is a little pricey but, if you get the results I did then it's worth every penny!
This spot treatment is great for those in between breakouts, and/or with the kit.

This was included in the Murad Kit I bought. Within my whole 4 week trial of Murad, this way the worst of the kit. It did nothing on any of my blemishes, even after three days. After a couple days of using this twice daily, my blemish was just as red as it was before. Plus, it was slightly irritating. It is also priced a little high compared to other spot treatments. Will not buy/use ever again! However, it didn't dry out my skin terribly like some other spot treatments, so I gave it two stars.

Comments about Murad Acne Spot Treatment, .5 fl oz:

My adult acne is caused by bacteria so the antimicrobial sulfur-based spot treatment works great. I also have to wash my face daily with a salicylic acid based cleaner and wash my hair daily. I use a make-up that's hypoallergenic and has salicylic acid. I don't know if this would work well on it's own if you are not doing other things to prevent the acne. It may not work well if your acne is caused by hormones or diet.

          I used this product for a week and woke up to an itchy rash. Not sure what ingredient it is that gave me the rash, but needless to say I am not using it any more! Waste of [$]!

            Comments about Murad Acne Spot Treatment, .5 fl oz:

            I'm in my early 40s and just started getting a few break outs around my temples from using certain hair conditioners, also a few on my chin. Never had acne growing up. This is something new to me. My skin is normal to just little dry in winter. Doctor said it could be early, early pre-menopause adult acne . As it isn't severe, I don't need an acne skin care regimen that will cause more problems as I have pretty much normal skin most of the time. This product does the trick. It causes the blemishes to disappear. No scarring. It is much better than cheaper products because this does not have cheap ingredients that just dry your skin out. This product has sulfur which other products don't. For me, sulfur-based antibiotics work wonders if I have a sinus infection as I'm allergic to penicillin. This product kills the bacteria in my skin causing the blemish without over drying it, and without the need for a prescription. Don't listen to the other negative reviews if you are an adult trying to get rid of a small, but serious annoyance you have not had to deal with before.

                  I recommend this product highly. At the first sign of a blemish, dot on Murad spot treatment and the next day the blemish it gone! I have cystic acne and this product actually stops the blemish from ever appearing. I love it!

                    Your zits don't stand a chance against this. Put this on before bed and see what happens to them overnight! It even works on the deep, cystic ones I get before my period. 0.5 fl oz. may not seem like much for the price, but it will last a long time since you don't need to use much product to do the job. It is so worth the money!
