Murad Pure Skin Clarifying Dietary Supplement Review

I had tried these about a year ago, and wanted to write a quick review. My mom had bought me two bottles of them off because they had really good reviews. Each bottle has 120 vitamins/pills (whatever you want to call them) in it, and you can take 2 in the morning, or 1 in the morning and one at night. They claim to clear up 55% of blemishes in six weeks, which for some reason made it sound more believable than it really was, because you know what they say: “If it sounds too good to be true; then chances are that it is (too good to be true)!”So this sounded believable because 55% isn’t a super astonishing number especially when it comes into the realm of acne products. I pulled this off the Murad website to explain a little of what the product is.

“Vitamin A stabilizes cell turnover to help prevent clogged pores Yellow Dock and Burdock support the body's ability to remove blemish-producing toxins Zinc helps support resistance to skin irritation US PATENT: 5,962,517*These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.”

So after taking them for 3 months or 12 weeks everyday not a whole lot changed and I thought how could they be rated so good, and not work at all for me? I went online at that moment and googled the supplement reviews, and I realized just about every person who wrote a review on the product was female, and in the 20-30 age group! Out of about 60 reviews that I went through I found only one guy’s review, and he was in the 50-55 age group! So I learned that you can’t just go off the good reviews of a product and think it will work until you actually look closely at things like: is the person reviewing a boy or girl, how old is he or she, and possibly what type of acne or skin does he or she have. These things are all important to look for especially if you’re a guy, because not many guys go and review products they’ve tried. If you’re buying a product with good reviews chances are that only girls have reviewed it, and girls have nowhere near the same type of skin as a guy does so the product probably won’t work the same! Now I’m not saying that it won’t work, but next time when shopping for a product just look to see if any people in or close to the same boat as you have tried it.
