A few weeks ago my aunt passed some samples of Murad Acne to me. I never had the chance to try it since I haven't had any major breakouts lately. These past few days, I've been feeling under the weather and my skin decided to act up. A few small bumps and bigger (but not monstrously huge, just regular) pimples decided to pop out lately. I decided it was time to break out (oh, how witty, a pun!) these little babies.
It's not the entire range, but I have different step 2 and step 3 products to try. There's the Clarifying Mask, Exfoliating Acne Gel Treatment, Acne Spot Treatment for step 2, Target/Treat | Repair. For step 3, Hydrate | Protect I was given the Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15 and Skin Perfecting Lotion.
What I like about using samples is I can make sure that I won't have any reactions with the products before I commit to full-sized or even trial-sized products. It also allows me to cycle products without worrying about them getting old, since my skin tends to become immune to certain products, specially acne treatments.
Tonight, I started using these after cleansing and toning. I started off with TBS' Camomile Gentle Eye Make-up Remover, followed by Kose Softymo Deep Cleansing Oil and Human Nature Tomato and Lemongrass Facial Wash. I toned using Clarins Toning Lotion with Iris for Combi and Oily skin. For the Murad Acne products, I used the Exfoliating Gel, Spot Treatment and Lotion. If all goes well, I'll be back to report favorable results. :)
