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:

      * Product did not work on acne cysts (larger, under the skin items)
      * Leaves darker than usual spot on where acne formed

      I had one of those, painful, inflammatory acne-- so maybe no product could help it, as this one certainly didn't. My concern is that the acne spot left behind was darker than usual and I am attributing it to this product... My skin tone is on the tanned side of olive.

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

      I have used this product before and was expecting more. It works, but not fast, and you have to keep reapplying it. Not a major wow, but for mild blemish control, I say give it a try. Not harsh at all. It does leave a residue once dry, but can be picked off.

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

      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.

            I like Murad's acne products and for the most part, think they work pretty well. This one is dissapointing -- didn't see any difference. I still think the best on the spot acne medicine is Clean & Clear's Persagel.

              This is the only thing I find that works overnight for new breakouts. By the next morning, the new breakout is noticeably smaller and less red. I LOVE this stuff!

                I've been using this for a while. It goes on without any major residue, there is minimal smell associated with it and it works very well. I had to buy another when I ran out - I've tried others, but they haven't worked as well as this brand.

                        I tried this product on my skin for only a few days and it literally burned the areas that had acne. They scabbed over and now I'm afraid I will have scars there forever. It didn't heal anything faster - it just irritated my skin terribly. I would not recommend buying this product at all.

                        I found this product in the 60 day kit. It was the best product in the kit. Glad to see it is sold separately. I have sensitive dry skin but this worked great. Dries pimples quickly and leaves no marks.
