Outsmart Blemish Clarifying Treatment is rated out of 5 by 12.Rated 4 out of 5 by Twig from even for us oldies! Suffered with blemishes to some degree most of my adult life so tried just about every range, wish I had discovered Murad long ago! My skin has never been clearer and this is a fab addition to an already excellent range. Have already recommended it to my brother!Date published: 2018-07-23Rated 5 out of 5 by aprego from Improvement after only a few days Recently my skin has suffered with more outbreaks than usual, but already after just a few days of using this product I have noticed an improvement with existing blemishes getting better, and no new blemishes appearing. The gel also feels quite lightweight when putting it on, and unlike some treatments that target blemish prone skin, this hasn’t dried my skin out at all.Date published: 2018-07-21Rated 5 out of 5 by Chloe87 from Perfect for my oily skin! I had my eye on this product when it launched in the US, so was happy to see it in the UK! I've been using it now for a few days and already noticed an improvement with my existing spots and the oiliness of my skin.Date published: 2018-07-16Rated 5 out of 5 by AnnaM from Great product and range Murad's antiblemish range is brilliant - my teenage daughter has been using the range for some time with really good results. She loves the oil free moisturiser, and we both use the spot treatment. I find the mattifier great when in Asia for work - keeps you matte and non-shiny all day. She has been using this clarifying treatment for the last week and it's made a difference. Highly recommend.Date published: 2018-07-13

“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.
