My Murad skincare regime

Murad has become a part of my skincare regime now for 2 months and I am so excited to finally share that regime with you! For year I have been so notorious for not washing my face every night and giving it the TLC it really needs, in the end it only made my dry skin suffer more.

Review by Roxanne from bonjourblissblog.com

I have to admit that less than a year ago you would find me crawling into bed after exhaustedly wiping my entire face with a baby wipe before bed and that’s it!! Terrible I know right? Must be a mom thing, I can’t be the only one who was doing this! They just work exceptionally well to remove mascara and are oh-so convenient…thank gosh I stopped though because I was only neglecting my skin by doing this and I knew better. On comes the colder weather and my dry skin was getting worse, as soon as mid fall hits there is a drastic change in the condition of my skin. When Murad reached out to me I thought, well isn’t this product just for acneic skin? NO! They have a phenomenal range of products for different skin types with fantastic reviews if you check them out here at Sephora! As I mentioned previously this week I used to do aesthetics and after studying the skin you have a greater appreciation for the dynamics of it and what products claim to do and how. After checking out their entire website I knew the exact products I wanted to try! So, I have been using about 6 of their products religiously paired with my Spin cleansing brush I talked about on Instagram. Here are the products I am using & how…

Evenings:

  1. Cleanse & Tone with the Age Reform Refreshing Cleanser + my Spin brush
  2. Treat with the Resurgence Age-Diffusing Serum
  3. Hydrate & Protect with the Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture

Mornings:

  1. Cleanse & Tone with the Age Reform Refreshing Cleanser
  2. Hydrate & Protect with the Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture
  3. Treat & Protect with the Invisiblur Perfecting Shield

Refreshing Cleanser: This is a gentle formula cleanser that hydrates my skin while removing impurities from the surface but not stripping it of its oils (so important guys!). I cleanse every night with my Spin brush and in the mornings just my hands.

Age-Diffusing Serum: This serum works wonders and I can feel it work when I use it, your skin works so hard at night while you sleep so why not help it do its job? This product helps fight age-related dehydration which has been perfect for my skin and helped to reduce the fine lines I see creeping up on me!

Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture: This moisturizer is phenomenal, I put it on very heavy at night after my serum dries and in the morning my face feels baby smooth and seems to hold its moisture better all day as well!

Invisiblur Perfecting Shield: This bad boy has replaced my usual primer, I rarely wear foundation as I am a die hard tinted moisturizer fan and lately I have been using the Invisiblur + my Smashbox Halo bronzing powder (found here) and it’s perfect!

I’ve also been using their Hydro-Dynamic Eye Moisturizer at night and their Soothing Skin & lip care during the day with the cold front upon us! My skin has been really appreciating all of these products and I look forward to seeing the results after long term use!

Intensive Age-Diffusing Serum Review

IMG_5882
Review by Andrea Clare

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.

Murad skincare review11

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.

Try this Tuesday – New in from Murad

Hello Gorgeous!
It is such a joy to find amazing skincare products and I have been so lucky to be able to try the best of the best to share with you all.

Review by Michelle from Teach in Fashion

Today, I am sharing some amazing new products from Murad CanadaInvisiblur, Intensive Age Defying Serum, and Renewing Eye Cream are all new offerings from Murad’s extensive skincare line.

Invisiblur Perfecting Shield is a gel based product that blurs pores and smooths skin. This product goes on smooth, while blurring skin imperfections. I find this product is great used as a primer, or when you want a makeup-free day. What really sets this product apart is that there is SPF 30 included. As far as blurring products go, this one is the best of the best!
Renewing Eye Cream is a very lightweight cream that targets the eye area to combat puffiness crow’s feet, and dark circles. I find that as I am getting older and eye cream is essential to my daily routine. I love that this one goes on smooth and light. I use it twice daily, morning and evening, and I have noticed that my eyes look significantly refreshed. As a little hint-I like to keep this product in the fridge for the cooling effect, and I find it works faster.
Intensive Age Defying Serum  contains resurrection plant protein which hydrates skin leading to a healthy glow. This is a great product to use in the evening after you have cleansed your face. I cleanse and tone, then massage the serum on my face and neck. Since it has been getting cooler I like to apply my favourite moisturizer over top of the serum. The results are noticeable. My skin is looking smoother, and I am seeing a difference in some of the sun spots I have on my lower cheek area. This is a great product.
If this has not convinced you to try a Murad Canada product then head to the website here to learn more about the amazing skincare product line. There is a product for every skin type and I have had nothing but great results.

New Intensive Age-Diffusing Serum

To create our new Intensive Age-Diffusing Serum,™ we started with the same powerful Age-Diffusing Serum formula you already love and enhanced it with highly specialized proteins from the incredible Resurrection Plant. This desert species has the power to survive months of severe dehydration and transform back to a lush, supple and vibrant state.

ba

Resurrection Plant Proteins have remarkable hydrating properties that help Murad’s formulas for Hormonally Aging skin address chronic dryness and loss of firmness. A native of the volcanic soils of one of Mexico’s most arid regions, these miraculous moisture regulating proteins allow this desert plant to survive the stress of near complete dehydration and support a “resurrection” back to a lush green state when it rains. Now the power of these remarkable proteins has been harnessed by Dr. Murad to restore balanced moisture levels that help keep skin plump for a complexion that feels healthier, more youthful and more beautiful.

This super-hardy desert plant can survive for months in a dormant dehydrated state and then burst back to a lush, green and vibrant state with the first rain.

The result?

An intensive, skin-rejuvenating formula that visibly firms and tightens sagging; reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; and brings dull, dehydrated skin back to life—leaving it noticeably smoother, more resilient and with a youthful glow.

    Patented formula instantly tightens and, with continued use, reveals smoother and more resilient skin. Multitasking ingredients work to firm skin and reduce the look of wrinkles.

  • Resurrection Plant proteins help combat age-related dehydration for a youthful glow
  • Phytoestrogens help improve elasticity to restore suppleness and firm skin’s appearance
  • Palmitoyl Tripeptide-37, a youth-building peptide, reverses the visible signs of aging and decreases the appearance of wrinkles
