Murad has a whole range called Blemish Control, and this is the latest addition – the Rapid Relief Spot Treatment.
If you are bothered by spots and blemishes then this maximum-strength product aims to reduce them in just four hours.The invisible gel formula can be applied at any time of day to reduce blemish size and redness. So you can use it for the occasional spot, or as an ongoing treatment.
It can be used alone, or under makeup, because Murad have created, they believe, a gel that doesn’t peel or flake.
The key ingredients in the spot treatment are:
Salicylic Acid (2%), which penetrates pores to treat blemished at the source. Salicylic Acid is an exfoliant, and it can be drying, but it is used in many anti-blemish products.
Patented Complex inspired by Thyme and Pine Extracts to fight irritants while preserving the skin’s healthy balance.
Horse Chestnut and Oat Extracts to soothe skin and reduce redness.
Basically the salicylic acid is the key ingredient here – the other ingredients will help soothe the skin, but not actually target the problem as such.
