I’ll be the first to admit, I don’t take very good care of my skin. I do wear sunscreen, wash my makeup off every night and moisturize every day. But beyond the basics, I don’t do very much. I’ve been pretty lucky with my skin. I haven’t really had to work TOO hard to keep it clear.
However, now that I’m getting a little older, I’ve noticed (among other things, like to inability to stay up past 9pm) that my skin has has lost its lustre and has become much more dry. Probably doesn’t help that I forget to drink water most days. It’s no wonder I’ve had kidney stones several times.
Once that dehydration hits, the wrinkles go rampant! At least in my case. It seems over night I had all these new wrinkles along my forehead and around my eyes. So, it wasn’t until very recently that I started seeking out new products that would aim at hydrating and nourishing my skin.
I had the opportunity to try out a few different products from Murad, but this serum was by far my favourite. It’s called the Intensive Age-Diffusing Serum. It is incredibly silky. It’s like nothing I’ve ever put on my face before. It sinks into my skin in a flash and leaves it feeling plump and young again! Without drinking a sip of water! Haha, just kidding – drink your water!
They recommend massaging the product evenly over your face, neck and chest. I usually skip the neck and chest (simply because I’m trying to stretch my supply of serum). I use about a pea size amount to cover my forehead because that is where I have noticed most of my fine lines. And I use a second pea size pump for the remainder of my face and blend it all in with clean hands. I usually add my usual moisturizer over the top as well, once the serum has had a chance to sink in.
I can’t say I’ve noticed a huge difference in my skin from this product in particular, however, I love the way it feels on my skin and the glow it gives. It’s certainly one of my favourite parts of my skincare routine. It feels like pure luxury and skin heaven!
I actually used Murad when I was a teen to combat a mild struggle with acne. So, I was thrilled when Murad gave me the chance to try out their products for more mature skin, years after their products saved my skin in high school.
