The Best Murad Moisturizers For Your Skin Type

Do you moisturize your skin every day? If you don’t, you should. Moisturizing your face will help you to look and feel younger, you will have softer, more elastic skin, and it will keep your skin hydrated for longer. Moisturize daily sounds easy enough but you need to make sure that you are using the right moisturizer. Just like there are different moisturizers for different skin types (dry, oily and combination), the same goes for SPF products. This guide should help you select the right moisturizer.

Dry Skin

Age-Balancing Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is a daily moisturiser that significantly improves hydration, protects skin’s elasticity to reverse the visible signs of ageing while providing broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. This formula utilizes specialized proteins from the Resurrection Plant—a highly-resilient species of desert plant which is known to survive severe dehydration and thrive in very harsh conditions — to deeply nourish, protect and restore moisture to dry, advanced ageing skin.

I knew I needed to try it.

We have teamed up with interior, lifestyle and beauty influencer Diana from 204 Park to find out what she thinks of the brand new collection from Murad, White Brilliance.

“As I get older my skin concerns are definitely changing. I’ve gone from worrying only about breakouts and oily skin to also being concerned about the tone and brightness of my skin as well. Years ago I never would have thought I’d worry about ‘dull’ skin but lately, I feel like unless I’m totally on top of my skincare regime, I need a little extra oomph to get some glow back.

Review by Diana from 204 Park

When I heard that Murad had a new line out specifically targeted at skin brightening I knew I needed to try it. Plus you know it’s going to be good as it’s a huge skincare trend in Korea. I don’t know about you but any time I hear about the next biggest thing in skincare, it’s always ‘big in Korea’. They seem to know what’s up when it comes to skincare! So thankfully Murad has made getting glowing luminous skin attainable and my skin is loving it! Here’s what it’s all about…

Step One: Cleansing Cream

A rich, gentle foaming cleanser that purifies and restores skin, utilizing a nourishing blend of Omega-6 Essential Lipids and Jojoba-derived Esters to enhance moisture retention, imparting skin with a silky, smooth texture.

Step Two: Luminous Essence

A quick absorbing, lightweight formula featuring an extract of electrolyte-rich Kunai Root to deliver essential hydration deep into the skin. Red Algae and Indian Fig Extracts gently exfoliate, restoring youthful texture and luminosity and priming the skin for optimized penetration of subsequent treatment products.

Step Three: Porcelain Serum

A powerful, high-potency serum that enhances skin’s translucence, formulated with four brightening technologies that leave the skin with a luminous glow; Porcelain Flower Extract evens and illuminates skin tone, Green Tea Extract helps promote skin’s brightness and firmness, and Hexylresorcinol and Hexapeptide-2 work together to deliver a visibly radiant and translucent complexion.

Step Four: Luminous Shield SPF 50

An ultra-lightweight UV lotion that protects skin’s rosy glow utilizing antioxidant-rich Grape Seed Extract to neutralize environmental aggressors and preserve skin’s brightness while light-diffusing microspheres fill in lines and wrinkles, making them appear less visible upon application

Because I’m loving this regime so far, I want to offer you the chance to win my favourite products, the Luminous Essence and The Luminous Shield. And with summer around the corner, a little SPF 50 is definitely going to come in handy!

Good luck! XO

Cara McLeay from A Fashion Love Affair

We have teamed up with Vancouverite, fashionista and beauty influencer Cara McLeay from A Fashion Love Affair to find out what she thinks of the brand new collection from Murad, White Brilliance.

“I am also on the hunt for the best beauty products out there – I have sensitive skin and am often traveling, so I need to be so careful when choosing products to put on my skin.

I discovered Murad’s White Brilliance collection and it is fantastic! Their Ultra-Lightweight UV Lotion has made its way into my daily beauty routine – I absolutely love the lightweight consistency (it definitely doesn’t feel like you are wearing sunscreen but it has 50 SPF which is what I definitely need for my face at all times, and especially when I am in beach destinations!) and it also helps to lessen the look of lines & wrinkles.

I like to pair the UV Lotion with the Murad Cleansing Cream that is really gentle and leaves my skin feeling super smooth as well as the Murad White Brilliance Porcelain Serum that gives me a natural glow that makes it look like I have always just returned from a tropical getaway, even when I haven’t!

White Brilliance is a brand new collection of formulas developed to illuminate the skin while evening tone to promote a delicate, porcelain-smooth appearance. Utilizing advanced technologies and ingredients, including precious Porcelain Flower Extract, White Brilliance is made up of four products: Cleansing Cream, Luminous Essence, Porcelain Serum and Luminous Shield SPF 50 | PA++++. In a study evaluating the performance of the White Brilliance collection, 98% of Asian women agreed their skin looked luminous* and 95% of Asian women agreed their skin was smooth and soft* after using the regimen.

Each product in the White Brilliance collection is infused with precious Porcelain Flower Extract, a delicate, iridescent blossom native to Asia known for its high content of natural antioxidants and anti-inflammatories. Named for its resemblance to fine porcelain, this elegant bloom’s pure white color and crystalline texture reflects light for a luminescent finish. With a rich source of phytonutrients, like anti-inflammatory phytosterols, terpenes, flavonoid antioxidants and Essential Fatty Acids, Porcelain Flower Extract is packed with moisturizing, reparative and purifying benefits. With long history of use in traditional eastern medicine, Porcelain Flower has been used to restore clarity and tone to the skin for an illuminated and translucent complexion.
