Long before I started this blog, I was a Murad user for years, particularly the anti-acne line. Fast forward to present-day dilemma, Ms. Acne decide to hang around and invited Mrs. Wrinkles to the party. Talk about bad company.

Adult acne + wrinkles, the struggle is real fellas. While my face isn’t plagued with pimples anymore, that monthly cameo appearance does bother me. And yes, I vow to defy wrinkles via meticulous skincare. Great thing Dr. Murad understands me and millions of women out there with the recent launch of two anti-aging acne products! Two concerns, bullseye.

As a serum junkie myself, I am happy to report that in only two consecutive days of using Murad Advanced Acne and Wrinkle Reducer, that lonely pimple at the base of my nostril was gone sans dryness. While it doesn’t sound as exciting as Jurassic World, it means a lot to this old woman who doesn’t want to be bothered by t-rex zit. The fun part? two weeks into the routine, my face remains blemish-free and feels supple and hydrated. Skin reborn? better late than never.

Per Murad website:

  • Kombucha Collagen Defense®, derived from a nutrient-rich Black Tea Ferment, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

How’s the idea of sunscreen with anti-aging and zit-zapping properties appeal to you? Sounds right up my alley! Murad Anti-Aging Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 | PA+++ gets absorbed fast and feels ever so light on the face; since it’s practically a 3-in-1 product, it’s both money and time-saver for sure. I hoard sunscreen so an addition of one is akin to a candy treat.

    Yikes, I hate it when I get adult acne, too. It always feels like a personal failure because I should have my skin under control by now.

  2. July 8, 2015 / 1:04 pm

    I've been reading some great reviews of this set.

  3. July 8, 2015 / 2:59 pm

    Adult acne is quite prevalent. It's great that Murad has a skincare line to address both issues at once

  4. July 8, 2015 / 7:17 pm

    I'm so glad that these Murad products are working for you! These products sound fantastic!

  5. July 8, 2015 / 7:59 pm

    YOUR BAG THOUGH. You know the red one I wanted went on sale and I ALMOST did it lol I was waiting for one of those gift card promos Neimans does. I've been on vacation so idk if once ever happened.

    ANYWAY. I have both acne and the beginnings of eye creases so I'm all over this skin care!!

      They had that promo not too long ago, I think. I am waiting for Black Friday 'tho . I kind of lay low with procuring designer bags, too many expenses recently…priorities, lol

    Murad makes amazing products

  7. July 8, 2015 / 10:33 pm

    That's so interesting that they use kombucha collagen! It's cool to see such unique ingredients showing up in these products.

  8. July 8, 2015 / 11:02 pm

    I like Murad. I use their moisturizers fairly often.

  9. July 8, 2015 / 11:20 pm

    I need to get a head start on anti-aging while still tackling my acne, this sounds perfect!

  10. July 9, 2015 / 12:02 am

    Amber introduced me to some great Murad products. I also have adult acne and wrinkles YIKES. I will check these out!

  11. July 9, 2015 / 1:19 am

    Oooh, these sound great! Mrs. wrinkles decided to come to my party too, she won't get the memo that she's not invited 😉

  12. July 9, 2015 / 1:41 am

    OMG I want all of this line! I still get a good amount of acne, and now I'm starting to get wrinkles, so I'm scared! haha

  13. July 9, 2015 / 2:04 am

    When I worked at Ulta they had some great MURAD sets for acne and I always took shoppers to them when they asked what to use.

  14. July 9, 2015 / 2:13 am

    Count me in as one of the 40+ with zits and wrinkles. SIGH! I need to try these, especially the one with sunscreen!

  15. July 9, 2015 / 3:02 am

    I don't get many zits really but am with you with the battle against wrinkles

  16. July 9, 2015 / 3:05 am

    Glycolic acid works well for both aging and acne–score!

  17. July 9, 2015 / 7:10 pm

    I get a break out from time to time though I really don't get zits much. But this line, i think I would enjoy it. I love Murad!

  18. July 9, 2015 / 7:49 pm

    Isn't it, though?! I didn't know you could apply kombucha on the skin! I drink 4 oz of chia-infused kombucha first thing in the morning, if I have it. Helps detoxify for sure. My skin seems to be getting better! <3

  19. July 10, 2015 / 8:27 am

    I don't break out too often, be these sound like amazing products. Especially that serum.

  20. July 10, 2015 / 12:08 pm

    I have never been disappointed with Murad products. Glad to know this set is working well for you.
