Murad Launches Two New Acne Products

Murad is one of my favorite skincare brands, they make effective products that are priced great for how well they work. They have just launched some great new Acne products, and so far I am really impressed. Check out the items below to see my review of each.


When they say Fast Fix they are kidding. I had a blemish coming in and I applied a dot of this before bed. I figured in the morning it might be a bit better but still in progress. To my amazement the little sucker was gone! I have used this three times and each one it has got rid of the blemish before it reared its ugly head. Truly a great acne product.

Acne Spot Fast Fix $16
Prior to this launch, Murad steered clear of using Benzoyl Peroxide (BPO) because of the irritation it typically causes. Using a breakthrough in skincare technology, Murad is launching its first-ever product containing BPO because we finally found a way to incorporate this effective ingredient without compromising the health and integrity of the skin.

This technology is a unique new delivery system, called Hydrophase, and along with Micronized Benzoyl Peroxide, it allows the BPO to penetrate the skin and provide powerful spot treatment without the irritation that is commonly associated with BPO. Acne Spot Fast Fix helps reduce pimple severity in as little as 1 day* and can be added to any existing regimen.


This is one of the fasted working acne products I have tried. At the first hint of a blemish I apply the treatment and by the next day the skin is clearing instead of getting worse. I really like how mild this is, it has not caused any irritation or dryness. And I have noticed it has started to clear up redness from prior breakouts.

Acne Clearing Solution: $39
This is a full face treatment product that is meant for daily use and is designed to immediately fight breakouts without causing purging. Featuring Salicylic Acid combined with other advanced acne-fighting ingredients such as Queen of Meadow Extract and Tea Tree Oil, Acne Clearing solution not only treats and prevent breakouts, it fast-tracks the healing process by minimizing dryness, redness and peeling. 96% of users saw clearer skin in 72 hours*


If you are new to Murad or want a complete acne line this is the way to go. The Murad Clarifying cleanser is perfect for troubled skin. The gel formula is a great wash for removing all the dirt and grime to prevent break outs. You get the two amazing treatment products. This kit is rounded out with a great oil control mattifier to keep your skin looking great all day.

Acne Starter Kit $30
Why you need it:
Clinically proven to rapidly clear breakouts and restore smooth skin without dryness or irritation.

Primary benefits:
96% of users saw clearer skin in 72 hours while using our featured product, Acne Clearing Solution.* Restores skin’s health, clarity and appearance.

Introducing Aqua Spa- Lather. Soak. Unwind

AquaSpaGroupShot (1)

I was sent a few items from the new  Aqua Spa line and so far I am really impressed.  My favorite item so far has to be the Energize Body Cleanser. The scent is perfect for waking me up in the morning and I love how soft and silky the bubbles are.

Another favorite is the the Bath Oil and Bath Soak, with stuffy noses and allergies hitting. The Soothe bath line is the perfect blend of Eucalyptus and Mint to relax and make me feel a bit better.

Finish your spa time with their Body Crème, a rich thick lotion that will hydrate your skin and leave it softly scented. Such a great line of bath products and all priced below $10.

Aqua Spa
A trio of spa inspired bath and body collections infused with a hydrating cocktail of deep-sea minerals and its Marine Youth Complex, an exclusive anti-aging formulation. The new collection features three combinations of aromatic blends and each offers a Bath Soak, Bath Oil, Body Cleanser, and a Crème to be used together or individually. The three scent collections are:

  • Energize – a fusion of citrus and ginger that sharpens the senses.
  • Relax – a mixture of lavender and chamomile for calming relief.
  • Soothe – a combination of eucalyptus and mint.


Take a Dip in the Fountain of Youth
A youthful appearance and soft, supple skin is often credited to plentiful, balanced collagen. The aging process naturally results in damaged or lower collagen levels and the resulting collapse of structure, poor texture, wrinkling of skin, and other unwarranted imperfections. All Aqua Spa products include Marine Youth Complex that contains advanced ingredients known to enhance the body’s ability to protect against the signs of aging:

  • Silicon: Boosts the level of collagen, a protein that helps to maintain the structure of the skin.
  • Zinc: A powerful antioxidant that stimulates healing and increases cell turnover.
  • Copper: Enhances skin elasticity.
  • Magnesium: Strengthens skin by maintaining function and the structural integrity of the skin.
  • Iron: Promotes general skin tone and an overall healthy glow.
  • Polypeptides: Binds moisture to skin.

The American Academy of Dermatology states that the natural aging process normally begins in the mid 20’s. As years pass, the rate of cell turnover slowly depletes, leaving behind tough layers of dead skin cells, rough texture, and a dull surface appearance. According to Dr. G. Todorov of, skin reaches the peak of its mechanical strength by age 35, and by age 40 the degradation of collagen rapidly accelerates. The ingredients in Aqua Spa’s Marine Youth Complex helps to revive aging skin and slough away dead skin to reveal a softer, more luminous layer.

The Aqua Spa Energize, Relax, and Soothe collections are comprised of:

Body Cleanser: Prep skin with an ultra-nourishing cleanser that removes impurities without over drying. Work Body Cleanser into a rich lather on damp skin using hands or a pouf and rinse well. Body Cleanser: $9.99 MSRP

Body Crème: Envelop skin with this ultra-rich conditioning crème that banishes dry skin. Apply Body Crème generously to clean skin for a satin-smooth supple finish. Body Crème: $9.99 MSRP

Bath Soak: Revitalize tired muscles with this gently foaming, restorative bath salt treatment. Sprinkle Bath Soak into warm, running water and blissfully bathe. Bath Soak: $9.99 MSRP

Bath Oil: Lavish skin with this intensely hydrating bath oil that replenishes moisture levels and protects against the signs of aging. Pour Bath Oil into warm water while bathing. Gently massage into skin to seal in moisture. $9.99 MSRP
