Product Test & Review: Outsmart Blemish Clarifying Treatment

Product Test & Review: Outsmart Blemish Clarifying Treatment

Murad has recently introduced a new product to its Blemish Control range, the Outsmart Blemish Clarifying Treatment. This lightweight gel serum is clinically proven to reduce overall blemishes in one week. Its mix of acids and Penta-Acid technology combats against blemishes, bacteria, oiliness and blackheads all whilst minimising dryness and irritation.

Solution for:

  • Blemishes and breakouts

  • Excess oil and shine

  • Large or clogged pores

  • Whiteheads and blackheads

As Alison is a Murad Ambassador, she was asked to put the product to the test, so that’s exactly what she did. Jack, Alison’s son frequently suffers from breakouts, mainly due to oily skin and high-intensity workouts such as spinning and running, so who better to test this brand-new product.

What did Jack think?

“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.”

We always say with all of our Murad products that time is key; sometimes it takes a few weeks for the product to really start making long-lasting and effective change. Although there are some products that really do make a difference overnight, it takes time for your skin to get used to new products. Give us and Murad time, and we guarantee you’ll be satisfied with the end result.

“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!”
