Murad Anti-Aging Acne Regimen

We assumed (and yes, we know precisely what "assume" spells, thankyouverymuch) that when we hit our mid-to-late 20s, acne would fuh-reaking finally be a thing of the past and we could start concentrating on holding Father Time at bay with anti-aging skincare products. This is what constitutes ironic foreshadowing: Not only are we starting to see wrinkles, we're STILL getting major breakouts! Hello, Life? The Universe? This is not fair!

Then, we were sent samples of the Mrad Anti-Aging Acne Regimen Kit ($119 for a 90-day supply), and after a few days' use, we were singing a happier tune. Formulated for sensitive skin that's got both aging and acne concerns, it's gentle but effective on those pesky pimples and woeful wrinkles. Thank. You. GOD. (or, erm, Dr. Murad, who is now a God Amongst Men to us.)

Full disclosure: Outblush received a free sample of this product.

Does the moisturizer provide any sort of.. mattifying effect?

I'm at that age where both wrinkles and acne are an issue, and I've been buying a spf acne mattifying moisturizer from "Cosmedicine", which costs something like $55 for a tiny tube. My skin's still oily so shine is also a concern.

We noticed a bit of a mattifying effect, but nothing overly long-lasting. It does control oil, though, as that's obviously a major cause of acne. A light dusting of powder (or carrying blotting sheets with you in your purse) should help, shine-wise.
