Murad Blemish Clearing Solution [Review+ Giveaway]

Back with another skin care review and this time I am focusing more on blemished skin as recently I had a massive cluster outbreak all over the nose & lower lip area without any warnings for the past week. Imagine how devastated I was to see such a scary skin condition (for my case la lol as I have generally quite decent skin to start with) and I don’t mind pimples or acne as long there are signs of one popping up (like nearing period month).

But this caught me off guard D:

Thought really hard and long about where these guys even came from but not much option came to mind, could it be my make up brushes? But I clean them once or more than once a month depending on how often I use them. Maybe it’s the mental stress from dealing with my crazy ass housemates and the moving house :-/

That’s the main reason why I rarely selfie or put on make up these days as I am worried it might agitate them even more, after the first week it showed no signs of clearing up, in fact it has gotten worst till I remembered that Murad had sent me their latest “Blemish Clearing Solution” earlier last month during their launch and decided to give it a try.

As their claim: 96% of Blemishes Clearing Solution Users saw clearer skin in just 72 hours!
Murad is no stranger when it comes to solving skin problems as they are a renowned dermatological brand that has been trusted by millions in so many countries, but previously I did not touch their brand as I didn’t see the need to and also it’s beyond my budget lol but now I know why it is something worth investing in.
“Dr. Howard Murad is a board- certified dermatologist and trained pharmacists who hs channelled his unique expertise and exceptional depth of experience into innovative skin care formulas ad a breakthrough approach to care called Inclusive Health. Today Murad is More than just a brand; it’s a lifestyle that allows people all over the world to look and feel better everyday.”
Murad’s Blemish Clearing Solution is designed to quickly and effectively reduce breakouts by targeting and treating the blemished areas caused by bacteria and debris in 72 hours without causing any skin irritation as we all know when blemishes are fresh any kind of product we use usually irritates it even more.

How to use:

It is a step 2 full face treatment (applied all over direct after cleansing) for daily usage and it contains Salicylic Acid and Queen of Meadow extract to fight break outs and keep pores clear. Considered like a vitamin blend to soothe and aid the healing process of the inflamed skin and also Retinol and Tea Tre Oil to purify the surface to prevent breakouts near future.

Follow by step 3 moisturizer for more effective results.

Here is my before and after pictures after 120 hours (5 days), I prolonged my experiment process to maximized the results of this Murad Blemish Clearing Solution. It showed significant amount of improvements after 5 days of usage (day & night), though it is not 100% clear yet but can see that my skin has stopped being inflamed and all my clusters are drying up, thank god now new ones formed lol. I noticed as it dries up the top layer of the pimple tend to get discoloured (darker) for some reason, but that didn't bother me all that much as it is FREE from pus lurking underneath it.

Left is BEFORE, right is AFTER ( 5 days) pesky headless pimples gone with reduced redness. Apologies for the yellow-ish photos, editor is being a bitch to me lately :-(

As mentioned, as the headless pimples will turn into blemishes (not scars!) that will fade off in a week or so. I rather have that (blemishes) than painful pus filled headless pimples lol, at least blemishes can be covered with cosmetics and it doesn't hurt.

This miracle solution from Murad is available retailing at RM198 for 50ml (full size) at all
