How does this compare to the exfoliating acne treatment?
I've been using it for a while and I absolutely adore it. I have really clogged pores on my nose and am really oily and that product does nothing to help it. I want to try this, but don't know if I want to give up the exfoliating acne treatment because it keeps the small amount of pimples I get at bay. Should I use both? If not, then which one?

on T-Zone Pore Refining Gel
Before I started using this, I was using the Exfoliating Treatment Gel as well. Essentially, they are both gel treatments targeted at oily and acne prone skin. The only difference is this product is targeted more towards combating oiliness, rather than treating breakouts/acne. I too prefer this product over the Exfoliating Treatment Gel :)

I was using the acne and wrinkle reducer treatment and switched to this. I think it works better. It still keeps acne at bay--I actually think it works better.
I also use the Time Release Acne Cleanser and the Antiaging SPF or Mattifying moisturizer during the day. They work really well. :)

this is just a more gently version of the exfoliating acne one...but also has retinol that is a preventative,increases cell turnover the more you use it which you want the older you get

I am a big Murad fan and have used both products. I'm partial to the T-Zone pore refining gel and use it daily. I don't recommend using both the exfoliating acne gel and the T-Zone gel. It gets too intense! Only use one at a time. I tried this when I first got the products, and it severely burned and irritated my skin, which took days to overcome! I do have sensitive skin. Both products cause me some mild stinging, but the T-Zone gel works much better for me. I had to discontinue use of the exfoliating gel due to an allergic reaction and it's just too intense for me. Hope this helps!
