Won't be purchasing it again unfortunately.Date published: 2019-04-24Rated 1 out of 5 by Sash25 from Did not suit my skin I’m a fan of Murad products and love everything I’ve used so far! However, this particular product was an exception. I have combination skin and occasionally get blemishes. I wanted to try this blemish cream after looking at the great reviews. This cream had a great pearly texture. However, after just two uses, I started to have sensitive reactions. My skin became red and blotchy and itchy. Quite disappointed by with this purchase as I have always been happy with other products.Date published: 2019-03-20Rated 5 out of 5 by Paola from Excellent Product I bought this product for my daughter and it appears the only one that has worked for her.Date published: 2019-02-21Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautybyedj from Breakthrough!!! This really helped with my breakouts. It left my face very clear for other products to absorb in. Highly recommending this angelDate published: 2018-11-03Rated 5 out of 5 by JackYBS from A slow burner, but an absolute must! Amazing! I initially started using this product at the beginning of August and at first, the product actually brought to the surface my underlying blemishes making their appearance seem worse. However, after a week or so, the product really started to work wonders and has since been reducing the risk of breakouts and fighting against my blemishes in the areas of my face which suffer the most. My skin in the affected areas feels so much smoother, healthy and oil-free after using the Outsmart Blemish Clarifying treatment for the past few weeks – I highly recommend it!Date published: 2018-08-15Rated 5 out of 5 by Ani980 from Hormonal Acne Hero I bought this a week ago as I was curious to how it worked and it worked perfectly for my hormonal acne! And works well with sensitive skin too. I did have break outs in the first week but it has to get worse before it gets better just keep a positive mindset!! Definitely recommend this to people who suffer hormonal break outsDate published: 2018-08-10Rated 5 out of 5 by Ianj from Cleared my breakouts! I have been using this product for a few weeks and it has cleared my skin of breakouts and reduced black heads. As with the other reviews i agree that my skin was worse before it got better, for me it took a week for the product to start working. I normally get breakouts in the summer as my skin is oiler but this has really helped! I wouldn't say it has reduced the shine on my face.Date published: 2018-08-04

“I have seen many patients develop a tolerance to prescription acne treatments, and when they stop working, it’s devastating. Treating blemishes demands a more holistic approach that includes lifestyle, nutrition and advances in topical skincare. I developed Outsmart Blemish Clarifying Treatment to be used as part of a whole-person regime to help skin stay consistently clear.” – Howard Murad, M.D., FAAD

Dr. Murad’s combination of 5 powerful acids—salicylic acid combined with lysophosphatidic acid, hydroxydecanoic acid, sebacic acid and glycolic acid—help clear skin and prevent future breakouts.
Salicylic acid reduces the severity of acne, helps keep skin clear by preventing formation of new acne and allows skin to heal.
Hydroxydecanoic acid and sebacic acid
Commonly found in royal jelly, these two ingredients are fatty acids with purifying properties. Clinical testing has shown that these ingredients can reduce sebum and are fast-acting sebum regulators.
Lysophosphatidic acid, bio-molecule derived from soy beans, helps reduce the appearance of pores.
Glycolic acid is a high purity, low molecular weight alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) derived from sugar cane that helps skin renew and helps rid the skin’s surface of cellular debris to keep pores clear.
Honey extract, boswellia extract and rice extract
These three extracts combined have soothing and hydrating benefits that help counteract dryness and redness.
