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: 2019-03-20

“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.
