Most Helpful Positive

works overnight

Constance Perry

Great product, eliminates painful pimples overnight. Be careful not to use it on the healthy skin surrounding the blemish because it can make the area red

Most Helpful Criticism

Not the biggest fan


I tried using this for around 2 months, but there were no effect and i had some minor breakouts too

  2. This actually works


    In all honesty, I am lucky I rarely have a pimple. Sorry. Maybe one every few months or so. So I have never felt the need to have a specific pimple product in my cupboard. I heard about this one on the podcast so thought given it is well priced, I would buy so I have it in stock just in case! Sure it enough, I got a pimple (slight excitement as yay could try this product!) and yes it actually work...

  3. Unreal


    I get really big, sore spots under my skin that usually stick around for 2 - 3 weeks. This has shrunk one of these in about 3 - 4 days! I am so happy I can't feel my heartbeat in my face!!
  4. excellent product


    I get the occasional spot of acne and I have used this product a couple of times to treat the spots. It has worked well each time and by the second day of use the spot is significantly smaller. This has been the best product I have used for my occasional spots. I would 100% recommend.
  5. Delivers


    Shockingly fast results. The four hour promise delivered for small blemishes that I had, overnight even better. Make sure to use a tiny amount otherwise I found too much applied to the blemish delayed results.
  6. Mixed result


    This did cause some redness when I initially applied it but once it calmed down the redness from my acne was taken away. It’s caused a little bit of peeling but I think I am using the wrong products with it. Not the magic spot treatment I wanted but it make a noticeable difference
  7. Didn't work for me


    I immediately applied this product when I noticed a break out coming through, and used it as I watched it grow. I feel like it didn't help in minimising the blemish. I found that it only provoked the spot to grow bigger and more red, or nothing at all ...I would have to say that I have used better spot treatments.
  8. Seems to do the trick


    I have recently had a few blemishes pop up and after using this spot gel, I noticed the swelling to have calmed and the blemish soon disappeared. So far, I am happy with this spot treatment.
  9. Not the biggest fan


    I tried using this for around 2 months, but there were no effect and i had some minor breakouts too
  10. VERY quick


    I'm so surprised at how quickly this actually worked, I had a real bloody eye sore on my face and put it this on it at night before I went to bed. The next morning the redness had completely gone down and all that was left was a little dark patch - which now has completely disappeared (it's been 3 days).

    If you wake up one day with a life-ruining pimple then seriously give this one a ...

  11. Great spot perfector


    This product can be easily applied onto skin and heals acne very smoothly leaving reduced redness and pimples.


    Just as I was about to give up on spot treatments entirely (they had failed me so much I had began to think they were a scam), I came across this product. I love it because it feels like it does the job; it visually reduces the look of my new pimples within a day. It does not harm my sensitive skin or make me feel irritated. And it also surprisingly lasts a very long time! So it is actually quite ...

  13. A bit pricey


    I don't know why it just works on some of my ances and some doesn't.
  14. good


    I have had some pimples recently and this has helped clear them up overnight.
  15. Didn’t hate this


    I’m a little on the fence with this. It physically felt like it was working and at times I visually thought it was, but, it didn’t wow me. I was expecting a lot more unfortunately.
  16. Move over Mario badescu


    Literally the one thing I will put on my active spots. People may complain about the super chemical smell but I don’t know, this just makes me think it’s working harder than the normal pink drip creams from Kate Somerville and Mario Badescu. This gets sh*t done, as literally it works it’s magic over night. I rephrased in a set as I accidentally threw mine out in a declutter.
  17. This is the biz-ness


    This stuff is amazing! It works great on little surface pimples or bumps that are just forming. When I do my regular routine at night I will just have a quick scout and dab a tiny bit on anything that looks like it’s going to become a pimple and by the next day it’s no where to be seen! I think it speeds up the heal time of full blown zits but not a major reduction in the appearance in 4 hours.

  18. spot treatment


    dries out my spots really nicely but can leave my skin feeling a little dry after. Would recommend going in with a moisturiser after this
  19. Spot Treatment


    I have quite acne prone skin so a spot treatment is a must for me. This product worked really well. If I put it on at night after cleansing my face the spots are usually gone by the morning. It does burn a little bit but nothing severe. The price is also very reasonable.
  20. Great product


    I have been using it for a couple of month and it helps keeping my skin looking gorgeous and acne free!
  21. Great with superficial acne


    I have been using this spot treatment for several months and have noticed an improvement with my skin tone and blemishes overall. However, I apply it all over (as you never know where your next breakout might pop up) and I do notice that more stubborn spots still take a while to go away. It does remove a lot of the redness associated with acne, but bigger, more problematic spots still take a while...

  22. Effective at reducing existing pimples


    Adore gave me a generous sized sample of this product with one of my orders. I used it on some hormonal pimples I had and I was pleased to see how the Murad Spot Treatment reduced their size quite quickly.
  23. INCREASES redness and PROLONGS life of pimple


    Very disappointed in this product and actually think I would be better off letter nature take its course than using this product. I occasionally get pimples on my chin that tend to be quite large. When using this product I find that it thins the skin out around my pimple and causes them to go BRIGHT red, so much so that not even make up can hide it. It also causes some peeling around the pimple th...

  24. Love it


    Will buy full size . Very effective product. Maybe peel a little much but I can accept it. Not recommend to very sensitive skin
  25. Doesn't work


    This has some serious claims and I thought I'd give this a try as I had a wedding to attend in the coming week. Long story short, it made my pimples look bigger and more red. Even the professional makeup artist was not able to cover them properly. Looking back at the pictures all I see are angry looking pimples around my mouth. Not worth anything.
  26. Made my acne worse, prolonged acne and lead to scarring


    I’ve used many spot treatments for my persistent adult acne. This is one of the worst I’ve used I thought I’d try after reading reviews but will be throwing away.

    Firstly the 4 hour claim is rubbish, I found using this it actually prolonged the life of my acne. This caused my acne to go bright red and extremely dried out I had skin flaking off my face and could not cover the redness ...

  28. Quite good at reducing inflammation


    This product is very good at reducing inflammation of breakouts and after using it for a couple of months, I have noticed that there are less raised spots, however, I find that this treatment can just turn raised spots into flat red dots. Overall, my skin is clearer and I have been using the Murad Invisiscar Scar treatment for my acne scarring.
  29. Excellent


    Excellent treatment for drying out spots fast. I use every night on my spots and find it halves the duration of them
  30. miracle spot treatment


    This product clears the skin leaving the skin smooth and even.
  31. Great at reducing redness


    This spot treatment is great a reducing redness efficiently. However, I have noticed that it doesn't actually get rid of my acne despite using it continuously for two weeks. It can make large spots less inflamed and raised, but it hasn't healed any of my acne.
  32. Surprised!


    I received this as a sample and found it really helped minimise some breakouts I was having! It flattened them overnight, which I was super surprised by. I would maybe consider buying the full size.
  33. Works well


    Received it as a sample of 75 ml so had a chance to really test it oppesed to those one time satchels. Works well for reducing blackheads as it has salicylic acid. And I do feel I need salicylic acid in my skincare because in combination with my other skincare products (Niacinamide and hyluronic acid) it has improved my skin. Not sure if I'd buy the full size though since I'd probably go for a che...

  34. PRETTY impressed


    I used for the first time last night and when I woke this morning my spots looked heaps less ready and inflamed. Really impressed with this
  35. Lifesaver


    This is one of the best spot treatments I have tried! I find that it really helps to flatten out and reduce the size of larger pimples within two days - even faster with smaller pimples. The tube also lasts for ages!
  36. Works for pimples


    My son uses it at all times. It's a good product that works well on pimples without drying the skin. However doesn't deliver miracle within 4 hours.
  37. Powerful


    This is a powerful spot treatment for pimples and breakouts. I normally reapply after a few hours, and it dries them out nicely. Definitely recommend!
  38. Good for flare-ups


    This is my 2nd tube of this spot gel. At first I LOVED it, but then found my skin perhaps got used to it??? I can’t say I experienced the 4hr miracle, but nevertheless it worked well in a day or two. I’ve since discovered the Outsmart Blemish Clarifying Treatment, which I layer under the spot gel (or just use on its own sometimes) and the combination is working well!
  39. Good so far


    This feels good so far, only have a sample.
  40. Highly Effective


    I was skeptical of how quick this claims to work - and whilst I'm not sure it is as quick as it claims, I still noticed a great improvement overnight or during the day. Probably one of the most effective treatments I have tried and I will definitely repurchase because I'm yet to find anything else that gets a better outcome.
  41. Best spot treatment


    This is by far the best spot treatment I have used. If left overnight, the breakout almost or completely disappears in the morning. I love the fact that it can also be used under make-up.
    Just repurchased it.


    this product worked for me temporarily. I found that using it frequently (every second night) made the skin of the affected area dry and really tough. So the pimple would lie underneath skin and come out later more aggressively. It took a visit to the dermatologist to do a a very very strong peel so exfoliate the skin.

    Would recommend as ONCE off (like once a year lol) but will not t...

  43. I am on my second tube


    I have been suffered from acne since teen, I am now 47 but still getting one or two acne every now and then that is very annoying. This product doesn’t dry down my acne overnight but it does calm it down. I took one lippy off due to the design of the tube. I sometimes find squeezing too much product out from the tube that can be quite wasteful. Overall it is a good product for adult acne.
  44. Works super quick


    This spot treatment works overnight. I put this on any spots before bed and when I wake up they have dramatically reduced in size or have gone completely. I’m not sure how this would work on blind pimples but anything else, it works so well.
  45. Great!


    A little goes a long way and this really helps to clear spots.
  46. Keeps spots at bay!


    Only the tiniest dot needed and it keeps pesky spots at bay! Helps to ease redness post-spot too!
  47. Actually Works!!


    Okay so this stuff is just so good!! I have sensitive skin and get cystic & hormonal acne. And this spot treatment helps clear up my breakouts so much faster, I notice a difference within hours, especially helps the redness. I can also wear it under makeup which is !! wonderful. Totally worth a try
  48. Doesn't work as expected


    I thought it's gonna be my holy grail after reading a lot of reviews that it worked for them. It does reduce the inflammation, but barely. I never mind the stinging part but I mind the part that it doesn't really work as is describes. Save your money as this does not work as everybody is saying.
  49. OK


    Effective but not in the 4 hours stated.
  50. Don't waste your money


    I bought this after reading the Adore blog which raved about it and touted it as a miracle fix for blemishes. For $32 I expected great things and was very disappointed when it did not perform any better than the Alpha H product I replaced with it.
    I agree with the other disappointed reviewers. It does not get rid of blemishes any faster than not applying anything.
  51. Reasonable effectiveness


    It works on blemishes but they do not disappear within 4 hours as stated. Reasonably good product but works as other similar products on the market.
  52. Doesn't work


    This product doesn't get rid of acne any faster than it would heal on itself. It does dry out the skin though and I think that is because of the sulfur ingredient. There are better AHA products to use than this.
  53. Didn't get rid of my blemishes


    I tried this on a few spots and while it didn't make them worse, I didn't notice miracle results either. They went away within a few days as per usual
  54. Good for breakouts!


    Seems to help settle a spot or blemish within a day or so. I usually apply before bed on a red or angry spot and by morning it seems to have helped. A product for rapid help on those nasty skin issues, it doesn’t however dry out the spot like some products which is nice as then you’re able to still cover it in make up the next day. A great item for helping clear spots faster with its antibacterial...

  55. Great product


    The Murad spot treatment is an amazing product, and while you can see the difference within hours, I wouldn't necessary say it disappears after four hours like the article on adore beauty depicted. depending on the pimple, it may take days or even close to a week for that pesky pimple to disappear!

    Overall, it’s a great spot treatment that does exactly what it’s supposed to do. Howeve...

    While I’m not sure if this does a better job than other spot treatments, the fact it can be worn under make up is a winner!!
  57. Wouldn't travel without it!


    Who wants a bloody great spot to ruin your insta pic?
    I love this stuff, it works so quickly is gentle on me!
  58. Love this product!


    I purchased several products for my daughters Acne and nothing seem to work. A friend recommended Murad Rapid Relief Acne treatment . My daughter tried it and surprisingly the next morning we actually saw a difference!!! The excitement and confidence boost I saw in her is absolutely priceless.
  59. Was hoping for better results


    I bought this in the hopes that it would be amaaazing on my breakouts, but i was disappointed. I saw very minimal results, but nothing great. It didn't really do anything for my acne, but it didn't make it worse. I will keep using it to see if it gets any better, but so far unimpressed
  60. Unexpected Results!


    First of all, I’ve been struggling with acne that ranges from mild to severe. Especially around my period, my breakouts tend to ruin my confidence and my self-esteem. I get huge cystic pimples. Ugly scarring. Oily skin. The worst area would be my chin. Some products helped only for my cheek area and sometimes forehead. But none have been able to target the worst area which is on my chin. Until I t...

  61. It works

  62. Literally works overnight!


    This is worth every penny. I pop it on a pesky spot before bed, and by morning it has noticeably cleared. Love!
  63. The hype was right!


    As someone who has oliy, acne prone skin, I'm always looking for a spot treatment that actually works fast. This product visibly minimises the blemish over night and shortens the healing time. Will definitely be repurchasing!
  64. Best Blemish Treatment!


    At the ripe old age of 29 I am experiencing problem skin for the first and worst time ever in my life - even as an adolescent. This is really not a fun time, and I am constantly battling with deep, painful blemishes under the skin. This is the first spot treatment I have used that has actually made a difference to the time frame of my blemishes! It doesn't quite work within four hours for the majo...

  65. A miracle in a tube


    I purchased this products when it was featured in a “staff picks” email. I have oily skin and I am plagued with breakouts on my cheeks and this product consistently reduces the size of my spots each application. Smaller spots are reduced to almost nothing and larger ones are brought to the surface a lot quicker. I will be repurchasing when I finish my current tube.

  66. best spot treatment


    this really works and does clear blemishes fast. it reduces the blemish size and redness within a few hours so i use this in the morning and im good for the day. It's completely invisible and can be worn alone or with makeup on top. just make sure u only put it on the spot as it will dry out normal skin
  67. It works!


    This really does what it claims. It significantly reduces spots much faster than other sport treatments I've tried. It can be a bit drying on your skin if you keep reapplying (which isn't really necessary as it works so well the first time).
  68. Clear gel good for spots


    This spot gel is great cause it's clear so can be used anytime and it seems effective. My only issue is it is quite runny so comes out of the tube quite quickly and I find I waste some of it.
  69. Super tube! Saves your butt in the nick of time


    Best spot treatment ever. Fast acting. Yeah, that's all I can say. It works wonders! Be warned, though, it will dry out any surrounding skin in the areas you use it, so be spot on when applying. I use 8t multiple times a day on my repeat-offender pimple areas. A short term solution, though... got to fix my darn screwed up pores.
  70. Best spot treatment ever!


    This is by far the best spot treatment I have ever used, and I have used many! You only need the tiniest amount of product on each pimple and they start to disappear within hours. It it definitely worth the price and I highly recommend it


    A week before my period, I always battle with 2-3 big and nasty pimples on my chin. They take up to 10 days to go away and are so ugly. So I was very keen to try this product and see if it lived up to the hype. As soon as I felt one pimple start to blossom, I was on it with the Murad Blemish Control - morning & night. And it worked! Instead of blooming into an ugly swollen whitehead, the pimple st...

    Great spot treatment for blemishes or blind pimples, only a tiny bit needed! Avoid applying too much like I did as it's quite drying but its amazing and speeds up the healing process :)

    It's a classic scenario -

    Friday morning right before a long weekend, you wake up and your usually blemish free face has decided to bless your chin with a blind pimple. You're distraught, knowing this bad boy is going to stick around, throbbing and red, for all the fun events you had planned.

    If you buy one thing from Murad - buy this!

    I don't get a heap of blemishes but when I do they're always big, red and deep and stick around for way too long.

    After using this spot treatment I can see a visible reduction in size and redness after a few hours, and when the spot does come to a head it's smaller and goes away much faster.

    This will be a staple ...
