Meet my new favorite skincare products:
Murad Time Release Acne Cleanser has an innovative anti-acne treatment technology that continues to work even after you rinse. Plus it does double duty – reducing acne while diminishing fine lines and wrinkles.
Murad Anti-Aging Moisturizer with SPF 30 is ultra-light, fast absorbing, and non-comedogenic (won’t block pores or break you out) that defends against early signs of aging with broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. Its ‘Kombucha Collagen Defense’ reduces the appearance of fine lines for a youthful-looking complexion.
As someone who is battling adult acne and trying to stave off signs of aging, these products are a godsend. I love that the cleanser keeps working after I’ve rinsed it off, and that it uses salicylic acid as opposed to benzoyl peroxide (which I’m allergic to). It’s also not drying and doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight. The moisturizer is equally awesome because it hydrates while mattifying – so my skin doesn’t look like an oil slick (which it tends to do in the summer). And even though the moisturizer packs serious SPF, it’s not thick and doesn’t leave a white cast behind.
While the cleanser and moisturizer are on the pricey side ($32 and $48, respectively) – think of it this way: this duo does the work of 5 different products (cleanser, anti-aging treatment, moisturizer, sunscreen and mattifier) – and it only takes about 2 minutes to use them.
Murad also has a new Advanced Acne & Wrinkle Reducer ($44) – which the brand also sent me to review, but haven’t tried yet. But I’ll be sure to let you know my thoughts once I add it into the rotation.
