It's Not Skincare, It's Murad
I absolutely LOVE Murad Skincare Products. I started using it in 2015 after I was gifted with a few products of choice and immediately saw results with my adult acne. When I found out they didn't test on animals, I was hooked. Murad Skincare was developed 25 years ago by Dr. Howard Murad. He "founded the first modern doctor brand of clinical skincare products, with a goal of making beautiful, healthy skin attainable for everyone". And boy has he done that! You can find his products at Ulta Beauty, Sephora, Dermstore.com, Amazon and more. Not sure where to start in their product line? I've listed a few of my favorites below to help get you going.
Time Release Acne Cleanser This is the product that really sold me. As I got older, I noticed my skin, which had always been good clear skin, started to have little breakouts. Obviously, this was not ok and had to be dealt with immediately. On the first wash, I felt a tingling cooling sensation that was invigorating and after a couple washes, my breakouts were gone! I also enjoyed how thick and creamy the product was instead of runny and foamy. And at $34 a pop, there's really no reason for me not to treat myself to my favorite face cleanser. Besides, it's not just skincare, it's Murad.
Rapid Age Spot & Pigment Lightening Serum This stuff is what dreams are made of! Immediate and lasting results will come with continued use of this gem. The hydroquinone in the gel-like formula works fast to fade age spots, dark spots, and freckles, while the skin lightening serum evens out and brightens skin tone. I like to put this on day and night, waiting a few minutes to allow the product to soak into the skin before I put on moisturizer. If I had to choose one Murad product to take to a deserted island, it would be this one.
Renewing Eye Cream I swear on my Grandmama's grave, this product is why I have no dark circles under my eyes. I'm already (humbly) blessed in that area but after putting this eye cream on, I don't even need concealer. Obviously, I'll use some on a night out but for every day, I don't need it with Murad's Renewing Eye Cream. Not only does it combat dark circles but it also fights against crows feet and puffiness. This eye cream is a triple-threat and one of Murad's top seller's.
