THE PILL: Murad Pure Skin Clarifying Supplement

THE CLAIM: A combination of nutrients, including zinc, vitamin A, and antioxidants, is scientifically proven to reduce blemishes by 55 percent in six weeks and help keep skin clear and healthy.

COST: $42 for a 30-day supply

GLASSMAN SAYS: "Retin-A is vitamin A that you apply topically to treat acne, but taking vitamin A orally makes me nervous because of the risk of overdose. Zinc is anti-inflammatory and can help reduce redness, but it's not an acne cure. This supplement also contains strong antioxidants like turmeric and pomegranate — they're great for repairing skin and healing breakouts."

MC EDITORS' VERDICT: The pills smelled sour and tasted salty, but our tester's combination complexion was balanced after just three weeks, and she noticed fewer breakouts in her problem area: her chin. Her friends also kept commenting that her skin really glowed.

BOTTOM LINE: *** 1/2
