If you’ve ever spent any time at all looking for skin care products, particularly those of the anti-aging persuasion you’ve probably heard of Murad. I had heard of them, but until recently I hadn’t actually tried any of their products (truth be told: they’re a bit pricey). But, about two months ago the company sent me a box of products to try (I got to choose the products myself), so I had nothing to lose. I’ve been using them since April and my verdict? Murad’s products are totally worth the price tag and I will definitely be continuing to use their products long after my samples run out.
I tried quite a few products from various Murad lines, but my favorites ended up being from their Essential-C line. A few of the items I tried were a bit too intense for my skin (like this eye cream that I passed along to my mom…she ended up really liking it, so perhaps it’s simply better for more mature skin), but overall I was quite smitten with my samples and noticed results right away (especially on these stubborn forehead wrinkles!).
Obviously we all have different skincare needs (you can get help with a personalized skincare evaluation here), but I wanted to share my experience and favorites for those who are interested. And just to give you a bit of a background on my skin: I am 28 (almost 29…eeek!) with combination skin and was looking for something to help with dark under eye circles, preventative eye wrinkle treatment, and something to attack the forehead wrinkles that have begun to settle in. Here’s what worked…
