Sulfur and Salicylic Acid give Acne Spot Treatment the power to deliver effective, on-the-spot acne control the moment you feel a blemish developing.

Convenient size makes it easy to provide extra attention to a stubborn blemish anytime, anywhere.

Additional features and ingredients:

  • Fast-acting formula clears acne breakouts on the spot
  • Sulfur acne medicine clears active breakouts and prevents new ones from forming
  • Zinc and Licorice Extract soothe and protect skin from irritation
  • AHAs and BHAs gently encourage cell turnover


Sometimes, no matter how well you take care of your skin, you feel a blemish coming on. When dead skin cells collect on your skin’s surface and combine with excess facial oil, it clogs your pores, forming bacteria. Fortunately, there’s an on-the-spot acne medication from Murad that works to eliminate your acne breakouts without irritating your skin. Murad Acne Spot Treatment features Sulfur and Salicylic Acid to destroy bacteria and reduce the size and appearance of acne. You don’t need harsh chemicals to dry up breakouts - just apply a touch of this acne skin care product directly on the affected area.

Indications:

For the management of acne.

Warnings:

For external use only.

When using this product

  • If excess skin irritation appears or persists, discontinue use and consult your physician
  • Using other topical acne drugs at the same time or right after use of this product may increase dryness or irritation of the skin
  • If this occurs, only one drug should be used unless directed by a physician
  • Avoid contact with eyes

Keep out of reach of children.

I cannot use benzoyl peroxide due to my very sensitive skin, but this works just as well. It does have a slightly sulfur-y odor to it after it has been on the skin for a few minutes, but if I use it at night on a pimple, the red spot is diminished significantly in two days. It can be drying if used more than once a day. I tried other products due to Murad's higher price tag, but I've returned because nothing works so well on my hormone-induced adult acne. Best advice: put it on when you start to feel a spot forming under the skin. It won't emerge.

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 oz:

      This didn't work for me at all. It didn't improve the acne breakout I had. I was breaking out and after using this for two days didn't notice it dimish the pimples. I switched to clean and clear's acne treatment solution (salicylic acid was the main active ingredient) and that product did improve and minimized the amount of pimples I got.

      Best Uses

      • On Clean Skin

      Comments about Murad Acne Spot Treatment, .5 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.

                Comments about Murad Acne Spot Treatment, .5 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!
