That happened to me as well! My skin has always been really smooth, i bought the kit just to brighten it up a bit but after about a week i has patches of tiny little bumps all over my chin and cheeks and my skin was so dry! I kept using to see if it would pass but after another week it just got unbearable, it made my skin look worse than it has ever looked before and i broke out on my neck! Its been about 3 weeks since i stopped using it and my skin is still not the same as it used to be.. although its not as red and bumpy as it was when using the product it is still noticeably bumpy and rough.. I hope everything goes back to normal soon!

It did the same thing to my skin the first time that I used it, and it stayed a little "bumpy" for about 2 weeks. I almost gave up on the product but it did get better with time and now my skin looks great.

mine didn't get bumpy from these products, you may be allergic to one, all or a combination of 1 or 2, however when I first started using murad,
more specificly the aha/bha cleanser my face got much worse before it got better, I think it was actually pulling old crud out of my pores so when new crud got in my happy clean pores it irrited them more. but now I swear by the stuff, wouldn't use anything else.

I'm in my 30's and have mild adult acne. I read all the reviews before trying this as most say it does not cause acne however I did not have the same results. I used it for 3 weeks and did notice brighter skin and a slight reduction of my sun spots. However, I also broke out more with this kit. I stopped using it 2 weeks ago and went back to the regular Murad acne line and the acne has cleared. I use the acne/aging spf 20 and have no issues. Oh and since I stopped with this kit my sunspots have already darkened again so just an fyi that the lightening serum would need to be continuous.

I have some of the same problem. The acne that appears whenever it wants continues to do so. I have applied this product specifically on the brown spots I have from the sun/medicine, etc...and not in the area where my acne usually appears. I have to say, that the salesman at the Sephora in Miami gave me a sample to dab onto my 'flare ups' which is really good. I've run out of the tiny samples he had given me...I think the name of the brand is (Kate Somerville or Sonewille)...can't understand his handwriting..look it up...it's worth it. Apparently it's a tube which looks like a long lip gloss. On one side you dab onto your pimples during the daytime (under make up) on the other side you use the evening treatment. All the best. By the way, the Murad product feels good on my skin. I have combination skin too.

I would use the Murad acne cleanser interchanging with the Essential C Cleanser (I have done this). The age spot and pigment lightening gel will take care of the spots. You must be consistent to get results.

Since using this set I have had less issues with blemishes. I started by using all four products every morning but noticed more acne... since then I alternate the treatment products each day and I am very very happy with the system. I have already ordered the full size wash... I would recommend giving the sample set a try and if it doesn't work for you then you haven't broken the bank with full size products.

I have also suffered adult acne and while I don't feel that this kit aids in the prevention of breakouts, it does not contribute to breakouts. The key benefit is that the products in this kit have seemed to help fade the marks left over from pimples and it really does feel as though my skin looks younger and fresher. Murad's acne line has really made the difference for me in terms of minimizing breakouts, particularly the Pure Skin supplement. They have an anti-aging acne line of skincare products that may be most suited to your adult skin...consistent use is what is key.

I think so. I am going through menopause and I find I'm sometimes getting acne on my chin. They are not oily at all and are well absorbed, not greasy feeling at all. The serum seems to balance the skin well. Hope that helps!

Depends on the severity of your condition and sensitivity, I am on presciption retin-a -and wanted to try tri-luma (4% HQ + retinol) for my melasma. My derm suggested that because I am on retin-a that I first try an OTC 2% HQ and OTC glycolic treatments. This lightener in conjunction with Dr. Dennis Extra Strength peels really worked for me in only 2 weeks! (Still retin-a at night). I really like how the lightener makes my skin look and feel after wearing during the day. It does tingle though, if you're sensitive!

I think this would help with the texture of your skin, but I can't confirm if it will help with the dark spots. My dark spots have not improved that much, but skin is brighter and smoother. A word of caution with the lightening gel, it is potent use as instructed. Hope this helps, good luck!

Of course, it depends on how much you use each time. For me, the cleanser and the serum lasted about 4-5 weeks. The lightening gel (since I only applied it to spots and not my whole face) and the sunscreen lasted about 6 months.

I've used this kit for about 2 weeks and am just about out. I will order the larger size cleanser and serum now that I've used the product, they are pricey so I wanted to try the small size first. This product was recommended to me by a friend who had very noticable improvement in her skin but I wanted to try it first before buying the larger sizes.

I've had this set for almost three weeks now an I use all four products every morning. So far I'm not even at the halfway mark yet. A little goes a long way. I use a Q-tip for the lightening gel to apply on just my brown spots. That really helps to make it last longer. The serum does seem to be running out faster than the other stuff though.

I don't know the exact quantity, but it was a good amount. I believe mine lasted about a month or a little more. Enough to see results, and then I went back and bought full-size of everything. Hoping the full-size lasts about six months.

Suggestions for a Night Moisturizer
I got the Essential C Day Moisture with SPF 30 as a sample, and I can't explain it, but it makes my pretty good skin look really really good. Other than under eye concealer and a little blush, I haven't even been wearing foundation since using this product. I'd like to try this little kit to see how I like the other products in the C line, but there is no night moisturizer in the kit. Can anyone suggest a night moisturizer, maybe in Murad's line, that I can use with this kit? I notice that two of the products already have AHAs so I don't need any more of that in a moisturizer. And I don't like anything too greasy or heavy. My skin gets dry and itchy in the Winter but right now, it's pretty normal, especially when using this day moisture. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
