Product Review: Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion
Moisturiser plays a huge role in my daily skincare routine, and I apply it after having washed my face in the morning and before I go to sleep at night. The latest moisturiser I tried out is Murad’s Skin Perfection Lotion, and already I am so impressed with it that it’s displaced all the other moisturisers I own and has become THE one that I use.
The Murad mission statement is to “create topical skincare products and dietary supplements that transform lives through The Science of Cellular Water.” What this essentially means is that there is a lot more research and design that goes into the science of a Murad moisturiser than an ordinary one, as it investigates cell membranes as the fundamentals behind youthful, healthy looking skin.
The effectiveness of the moisturiser can be felt within moments of application. The consistency of the product is fair, and easy to apply on skin. I applied it after washing my face and drying it, when my skin was already fairly hydrated, but the ingredients in the product refreshed it further. My pores cleared up a lot as a result of the moisturiser, which is brilliant as clogged pores are one of my bête noires, and the vast majority of creams I have used in the past have been unable to tackle it.
As I mentioned in a previous post, now that I’m in my twenties, moisturiser has to do more than just keep my skin soft; it’s got to work some of that anti-aging magic as well, as the effects of a hectic city life are taking its toll on my skin, particularly on the forehead in the frown lines. The best moisturiser, then, would have to work to counteract the signs of aging on my part, something that the Soap & Glory brand fail at miserably, despite promising “Daily Youth” on the back of its bottles (there’s your false advertising). But, thankfully, the Murad Hydrate & Protect really DOES do what it promises. I’ve been using this moisturiser, twice a day for a week now, and already there is a discernible decrease in the appearance of my frown lines, for which I am endlessly grateful for.
Murad has a tremendous selection of products and such was the success of this Age Reform cream that I will definitely be venturing onto their website for more supplies when I have used it all up. Through the genius of Dr. Howard Murad, they also have products which can clear acne, tone the body, optimize skin and protect the body from sunrays. Clearly, when Science and skincare meet, the effects are marvellous.
