It can be. I used it at night before eye cream and then night moisturizer. If you use it in the daytime too, make sure your moisturizer has spf to protect your skin.

I use it as a serum - meaning after washing and toning my face, then I apply my moisturizer. During the day I use a SPF moisturizer and at night I use Murad's Skin Perfecting Lotion. I use it twice a day.

Hopefully, my answer helps resolve your question.

I use this product twice a day as my moisturizer. Periodically before bed I'll pat on a bit of Josie Moran Argan oil on top of it if I'm in the mood for a moisture surge. I also do use a separate eye moisturizer - this isn't a great product for the eye area (which needs heavier/more moisture)

Question
How does foundation apply when using this product?
I have very oily skin and acne prone (even though this seems to be under control for the past few months). I need to know if anyone has used this product and applied foundation over it, is it easy to apply or does it "roll off"? I have very bad luck with finding a base under my foundation, have tried a few others like the Pomegranate Primer from Korres and Zero Oil Moisture lotion from Origins, even though they definitely reduced the oil and shine on my face when worn alone, when applying foundation over it it always rolled off. I did let both of these products sink in on my face for a while, but still didn't have any luck. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I use this product first and follow up with a combination of moisturizer and BB cream. Then I use a mineral powder foundation. Unlike pore perfectors or skin primers, this product does not effect the ability of the other products to do their jobs.

I only use this product at night, not with makeup. It doesn't dry you out but it's also not moisturizing, it usually just puts my skin back to it's natural texture. I use powder makeup so I like to have a really moisturized base. However, this product REALLY helped with my acne, so I would definitely say get it and use it at night.

Hi there, I think I can help you!
I wear Estee Lauder double Wear (very full foundation) but I have tried many of the big name brands. I use this every morning and it has never interfered with my foundation. It is VERY light and it is absorbed quickly. A tip I have for you to help with application: Wash your face, pat dry and then immediately apply this product. This will help you get a thin coverage all over (and save product) because your skin is still slightly wet. It makes it easier to spread. I noticed in the morning after using this the night before, that it is completely absorbed when I do this. But when I apply to totally dry skin I sometimes have a tiny bit too much. I hope you like this product, if you have oily skin this is one of the best choices I could imagine. Their moisturizers are also very light weight.

answer 3
I'd recommend using a moisturizer over this. Although I have very oily skin, it also dries out very easily, so I always use moisturizer with anti-acne products. I usually apply the Murad Acne & Wrinkle Reducer, let it sink in for several minutes, and then I apply Philosophy Hope in a Jar moisturizer (but you can use whatever moisturizer you like - that's just the one I use).

I would simply because of the dryness you talked about. Acne products are designed to dry the skin a bit but if your getting super dry and tight after using a product then it's time to change products. just remember, if you still get dry, exfoliate lightly THEN moisturize. You can't re-hydrate dead skin.

How good is it for acne?
For those of you that have seen good results from this product, how bad is your acne, is it only occasional (a rare pimple not too often). I get pimples pretty frequently that's why I want to know if this product will work for me.

If you add this product to Dr. Murad (or any other) anti acne line, you will get great results! I added it to another anti acne cleanser, toner, moisturizer line and am very pleased with results. I hardly break out anymore and my skin feels so much smoother!

It is very thin and not at all too heavy . Its lighter than a butter, cream, or gel. It is closest to a gel, but imagine a gel that you added water to- that is this product.

Murad also makes a gel acne cleanser which works well. You might also try the Neutrogena "Acne Stress Control" foaming cleansers -- one's in a pump bottle, the other's in a tube. Same basic principle as this acne & wrinkle reducer.

Did this make you break out at first??
I've been using this every night before bed for 2 weeks and I have way more pimples than I did before I started. It makes me not want to use it anymore! But I hate to stop using it because I feel like I'm not giving it much of a chance...Did anyone else encounter this problem? Maybe it just brings them out and it will go away eventually? I'm just so desperate to get my acne under control

You may be using too much. Use a very, very thin layer and let it dry before applying your moisturizer. It only takes a tiny bit, it goes a long way.
