THIS Is the Brand New Acne Spot Treatment That Will Get You Through Summer

The debut of Murad Skincare's new acne-fighting product certainly made a splash (literally).

Yes, I set sail with the popular beauty brand last week at their Third Annual Spring Soirée as they launched a few new products from a yacht in Marina del Rey, California, just minutes from the Sweety High HQ!


I was lucky enough to walk away with fresh goodies introduced by the company, and the one I tried immediately is their brand new Rapid Relief Acne Spot Treatment.


When it comes to personal skin woes, I'd say dryness is my issue. Luckily, I am fortunate enough not to really deal with breakouts (genetics, baby!), but for the first time ever, I was actually grateful that I spotted a tiny pimple under my lip and above my forehead. This gave me a chance to fairly test the product instead of simply just writing about what it is supposed to do. What a delightful coincidence, right?

I applied a thin layer of the serum over both affected areas and it stung a bit for about a minute (that means it's doing it's job, right??) and then I went to bed. When I woke up the next morning, the spots were certainly not completely gone, but the swelling and visibility had gone down dramatically, and with just a touch of light foundation, it was as if they were never there.

I did the same thing the following night before bed and I noticed the spots lessen even more. The instructions encourage users to apply more than once a day, so I probably could have seen an even greater outcome had I done just that. The product's mission claims to reduce blemish size and redness in just four hours. I will say I am on board with this.

Although I am not generally prone to breakouts, I will say that if this week is any indication, the combination of the heat-induced sweat from summer sun and the sweat caused from working out (more frequently this season than others) is likely to cause more zits and I want to be prepared to take them on!

I can't say whether or not this is useful for people with heavy breakouts, but I will absolutely stand by this product when it comes to that annoying little blemish you get the day before a big date or event that will require you to be in front of a camera. Clocking in at $22 for a 0.5 oz supply, this should definitely get you through your summer skincare woes.


Zits are a beast in themselves, but another skincare issue you must tend to especially during the summer is avoiding getting burned. Click HERE to find out how to properly care for fair skin in the sun!
