Hello my loves! Today I have a skin care review for you brought to you by Murad.
If you have annoying skin like I do you are very familiar with a wide variety of different skin care brands and all that they have to offer. For reference I have very dry skin. The kind that tends to flake off and look a very angry red underneath. All my dry skinned girls feel me. I feel like I have tried everything from drugstore to high-end trying to keep my skin under control and I just haven’t had the best luck in finding products that have really helped treat my issue, not just put a band-aid on it. Until now.
Murad is the brain child of Dr. Howard Murad, a leading dermatologist, trained pharmacist and Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine. He has written 4 best-selling books and holds 19 skin care patents. The company is dedicated to making beautiful healthy skin attainable for everyone.
I am quite in love to put it lightly with the whole Murad Experience. They have a different regime for every single skin type, issue, problem … whatever you are dealing with. Anti-aging products, oily skin, dry skin, mature skin, young skin … should I go on?
For my skin type I was sent the Age Reform line and to help tackle my dry skin issues they added the Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture Cream. The products are labelled from 1 to 3 in a fool-proof step by step system.
1. Cleanse/Tone Refreshing Cleanser – I have been enjoying this cleanser immensely. Along with my dry skin I have very sensitive skin that reacts very easily to difference facial cleanser’s if they are too harsh. I found that I have no issue’s using this on a daily basis and it helps keep my skin clean, refreshed and not dried out.
2. Treat/Repair Rapid Collagen Infusion – This product felt very similar to a serum to me. I like to rub a few drops of this on quickly so it soaks into my whole face and I feel that I can notice a HUGE difference in the elasticity in my skin. I am only 29 so I’m not dealing with any major wrinkles or fine lines yet but trust me they are there and anything that will help keep them at bay for any length of time is going to stay in my skin regime for the rest of time. This little guy has been such a gem and I didn’t think I would like it as much as I do. I have also turned my mom onto this and she has been loving it as well so I can vouche for the fact that it does in fact work for more mature skin types.
3. Hydrate/Protect Perfecting Day Cream – I have to be honest this was my least used/favorite product of the bunch. As I said before my skin is so dry that I need a really intense moisturizer to deal with my skin on a day-to-day basis. As an everyday moisturizer for normal/combo skin I would say this would work just fine. It has a SPF 30 in it which is great for every day to add some extra protection against the sun. If you have really dry skin like myself this is not going to do enough for you.
Step 3 Hydrate/Protect Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture – My favorite product of the whole bunch. This worked wonders on my scary dry skin. It is so buttery smooth, quite thick and gives the ultimate hydration back to my de-hydrated skin. I loved this so much that the moment I was out of the sample they sent me I had to order another one. Its my perfect substitute for the Everyday Perfecting Day Cream which I didn’t so much care for. If you are a dry skinned human like me then this product will be your best friend, soul mate & lover all in one. Yes. It’s that good. Lets be real, I ordered like 3 back ups just so I’m never out of this.
If you liked the cute little makeup bag in my photo’s it’s also from Murad. It might seem like an inane prop but coming from someone who own’s a billion makeup bags I really enjoy this one. I’ve taken it on 3 trips now and it’s all lined with water resistant material on the inside and is a plastic on the outside so whatever you put inside will not get wet. There are different slots and slits to hold your products tightly inside so they don’t bang against each other when your travelling around. Plus its cute so that never hurts.
To finish off my friends I just want to say thank you to Murad for sending me out these products and turning me on to a great company, with a great cause and amazing customer service. My experience was so great. Everyone was professional, courteous and generous.
If you are interested in any of the products that I have talked about in today’s post I have a link for you that Murad has given me that will direct you to a page with all of my favorite products! For free shipping on all your orders just use the code “Fancy”.
I highly recommend all of these products and all of these opinions are my own. I am always forthright here on makeupfancy and you can count on me to always give you my 100% honest opinion!
As Always, when in doubt wing it out!
Love you guys, Jillian xoxo
