Product Fail: Murad Acne Treatment Concealer

By Wendy Larson

I’m never happy having to write a bad review on a product.  Especially when the product is from a company that has such a great track record with amazing products- but unfortunately, a few misses are to be expected from every company.

I recently used some really heavily scented skin care products that broke me out horribly. So I was excited to get my hands on a stick of Murad’s foray into the world of cosmetics– especially considering it’s an Allure “Best of Beauty” winner.

The concealer is incredibly thick and pigmented and is infused with 2% Salicylic Acid, so one would think that it would be fantastic blemish cover.  Unfortunately, I didn’t think it was.   The problems I had were that the product is chalky (I suspect it’s the Salicylic Acid) and refuses to blend.  Also there are only 2 colors, and both pull heavily on the orange side.  I have very cool toned skin, so this product causes a jaundiced Dalmatian effect when I try to make it work.

Le sigh… I’m sorry Dr. Murad- I’m just not that into this one.

    While no one likes to write a bad review (except maybe me, I am a mean person sometimes) i think it not only builds confidence from readers (i do get suspicious of blogs where they only ever have positive things to say). I think it can also serve as useful to companies who read those blog posts (assuming they do).

    I had a Murrad product that i HATED while it worked well the spf in it burned your eyes (it was an eye cream so this was a problem). While I agree that over all the brand has great products, every brand has failures as you said. while i do find murrad fairly quick at picking up on these facts and either fixing the product or getting rid of it.

    I do hope that they make changes with this product. If they would make it in a greater range of colors and more blendable, it wouldn’t be so bad.
