A few months back I was contacted by Murad to test out and review some of their skincare products. Unlike most companies who approach me, they told me to tell them what I wanted to try. I went to their website and scanned page after page of endless amazing sounding products…I was totally at a loss! I decided to take to social media to ask you guys which Murad products you used (and loved). Luckily I was flooded with responses!
I took the top three suggestions from you guys, then researched them more online. I was pleased to find nothing but 5-star reviews for each of the items! The items were voted on in this order: 1) INTENSIVE-C RADIANCE PEEL, 2) COMPLETE REFORM & 3) RENEWING EYE CREAM.
I started testing them out immediately upon receiving them in the mail and have continued using them over the past month. When it comes to skincare items I always use them for at least 2 weeks to a month prior to reviewing them in order to give an honest review. Here were my findings with these goodies!
Please keep in mind since I review a TON of skincare products – when I’m testing products for review, I do not use ANY OTHER PRODUCTS IN COMBO WITH THE ONES I’M CURRENTLY REVIEWING.
FROM THE WEBSITE: Primary Benefits
“Actively smoothes and perfects skin to enhance luminosity. Reduces hyperpigmentation to restore clarity.”
This Murad Intensive C Radiance Peel truly was an OMG product from first use! This creamy, almost glue-like textured face mask is SUPER cooling from the second you put it on your face. This is a feeling I hope for in masks and peels as opposed to the burning sensation you sometimes get. In just ten minutes time this peel improved my skin’s softness, texture and left me feeling like I just left the spa.
That was just after first use. After using this three times per week consecutively for a month, I have seen incredible, noticeable results! My discoloration spots which seemed to have been minimally fading with the use of past products, have shown a massive difference with this peel. I had a sun spot the size of pencil eraser under my left eye for years and it’s hardly noticeable now! Loving this, and at only $49.50 per tube, I can continue to use it forever and ever.

FROM THE WEBSITE: Primary benefits
“Increases firmness 61% after just one application. Improves skin texture to reveal softer smoother skin.”
UMMMM – YES! This Murad Complete Reform With Glyco Firming Complex is probably my favorite product of the bunch (although that’s a tough statement to make because I really love them all!) Honestly though, I did notice the most difference the quickest, with this. I have used it for the past month every morning and every night – without skipping a beat (after cleansing my face and prior to moisturizing). Look at the photo to the left to see for yourself. After applying this, my skin instantly looks tighter, younger and overall more fresh! I’m actually sad that I have to stop using this for a while since I’m about to test another product for review but it will be sitting on my shelf calling my name in a few more weeks!
I have had a TON of compliments on my complexion since using these Murad products and I don’t know if it’s the combination of all of them, or a certain product causing the positive change…but I’ll take it! And my hunch is that this Complete Reform is the reason why. It’s slightly more pricey than the peel at around $70, but well worth it’s money in gold! If you don’t believe me, read other people’s reviews too. It’s truly amazing! CLICK PHOTO TO PURCHASE
FROM THE WEBSITE: Primary benefits:
“Increases elasticity and firmness. Reduces wrinkles and sagging.”
Last but certainly not least – this Murad Resurgence Renewing Eye Cream is a solid eye cream! Can I shout from the rooftops?! This is why it was so hard for me to say the last product was the best of the bunch…because this one is soooo fa-reaking amazing too! This literally – ACTUALLY – takes away puffiness, crows feet AND dark circles. It just plain does what it says. I don’t know if it’s allergies or the change in season but I wake up every morning with extreme puffy eyes with dark circles. Double UGH.
As soon as I wash, tone, apply my Complete Reform and moisturize, I dab a small amount of this eye cream to both under eyes. At first use I was scared because it actually burned a little…and I have had TERRIBLE experiences with burning eye creams to the point where I refused to review them because they left my under-eyes red, MORE puffy and even caused them to peel! This did just the opposite strangely enough. Yes it burns for a few seconds, but almost as quick as that sensation passes I look awake, refreshed and ready to take on my day! Looking for a multi-purpose eye cream? Take my word for it – THIS IS THE ONE. I don’t review products unless I feel passionate about them..and I really love this one because it really works.

Hope you ladies enjoyed reading about my experiences with these fabulous goodies! Thank you all again who gave me tips on what to try from this line…I really had no idea what to expect from Murad, but your sales pitches all really excited me! Now that I have seen the change for myself, I can’t wait to try more! Definitely a splurge worthy line.
