This product is a must have in my book! I have tried many different acne products and I always come back to Murad. It is quite expensive but it was worth every penny.

If you give this about 3 months, your spots will be as close to gone as can be. It really works! The pump dispenses exactly what you need (very little) and it lasts about 5 months. It does not have an offensive smell and does not make your skin peel.
