Honest reviews


No idea how, but it also seems to double as a primer!

I took this day cream (as part of a Murad sample kit) with me on a cruise and found that my makeup looked amazing and lasted longer than it ever has without needing to be retouched or blotted in any way 12 hours later… even with the humid ocean air surrounding me. The SPF is a bonus. I havn’t been using it long enough to ascertain whether it is improving the texture of my skin, to be honest, but wanted to share the news about it acting as a primer. Hopefully this will save you some cash vs. purchasing a separate primer.

I didn’t like the smell of this product, I’ would not recommend this one, due to the smell of it alone.

I like it so far….

I chose to rate 4 stars b/c I have only been using it for about 3 weeks so far; however, in that time, I spent a week or so at the beach, and the spf worked great! I have also noticed it helping with hydration and some decrease in dark spots.

Love Murad Resurgence and Perfecting products

Have all the resurgence line and several of the perfecting products. This stuff feeds my skin, reduces pore size, made the texture and color a hundred times better and its taking care of lines and wrinkles. Have a bad line from lip to chin. Had it botoxed and wasn’t impressed. Even less impressed with the cost of it. Now the wrinkle is about %75 gone. Use a Palovia laser and NuFace, but burned my face with the laser and had to lay off for 3 weeks. Murad doesn’t burn, dry, peel. Has no side effects. It protects and takes care of my skin. This line is my new love.

good one

I’ve tried so many day cream..none would either be oily or dry but this one is just right. Doesn’t leave a pinkish or brownish shade either which is awesome.

I love Murad

All like all of their products that I have tried. This one is not greasy at all. Light and nice.

Haven’t found anything better

I like this moisturizer and have been using it for about two years, which I first purchased from my cosmetologist for $20 more than it is on Amazon. The sunblock is great and my face has never burned while wearing it, even when I apply SPF 100 to the rest of my body and still find ways of burning or turning pink. It’s not great for dry skin days, but I haven’t found anything as light feeling with sunblock abilities that doesn’t irritate my skin. I would give this 5 stars if it helped with my dry skin more.

It is good for my sensitive skin. I can use under the makeup or alone. I Iike it but a little expensive.

Causes my face to break out

I don’t know what is in this stuff. It is different than the normal day moisturizer. It doesn’t smell good like the regular day cream and it causes my skin to break out.I have been pretty disappointed overall in the performance of all the Murad products. When I get through what I bought I am going back to Clinique.

I love it

This product is a day moisturizer with an spf. I use it during the day under makeup. It works great. My makeup looks good over it. My skin looks pretty good also. So with the spf it is just what I needed. I would buy it again, particularly at Amazon prices.
