There are sooo many Murad launches to get excited about, some of which have already launched, some of which are incoming, such as the Night Fix Enzyme Treatment and the Prebiotic cleanser and duo – all of which sound fantastic. The three most recent launches are pretty universal in appeal, with a bit of something for everyone.
I was very excited to see the arrival of the Murad Multi-Vitamin Infusion Oil, as if anyone’s going to give good oil, it’s Murad! As the name suggests, this is an oil packed full of vitamins, covering everything from A-F in a product that can be used in various different ways, depending on your needs. Jojoba Oil and Moringa Oil are high up on the list of ingredients and you can use this as a traditional oil, to add a bit of radiance to your make-up routine (if you have a foundation that can go a bit dry on you, a drop of this will help) and as a booster to your moisturiser. I really do love a good oil and I’m a firm believer in the idea that there is an oil for everyone – I’ve had terribly dry and broken-out skin that has benefited hugely from a good dose of oil love, so don’t be afraid of oil if you’re spot-prone! Fine the Murad Multi-Vitamin Infusion Oil is £55 here – link.
Murad do some seriously amazing blemish treatment products (the Blemish Clearing Solution is one of my all-time favourites – I literally have a stock of back-ups!) so I was excited to get my hands on the new Murad Outsmart Blemish Clarifying Treatment. However, other than the occasional spot, I haven’t really had enough of a breakout to give this product a really good go – what great problem to have! It’s a treatment designed to combat overall breakouts and congestion, which it achieves via a concoction of fabulous acids (including the two biggies – Salicylic and Glycolic) and I also note that Niacinamide is high on the list too. Dimethicone is quite high up on the ingredients list, so if you struggle with that then tread carefully with this – to be honest, I’m surprised to see Dimethicone included on a spot-treatment as it can cause problems, but I’m someone who doesn’t have an issue with it so it wouldn’t bother me. I can’t speak of the benefits of this at treating breakouts, but I have used it a couple of times to see what it’s like as a general serum and I can report that its light, gently exfoliating and non-drying, so presumably a great all-rounder for congested skin. It’s £35 here – link.
Finally the newest kid on the block, the Murad Revitalixir Recovery Serum, which is the one product I’ve wanted to get my hands on for what seems like forever! This fabulously scientific-looking serum is designed for both the face and eyes, providing a whole host of benefits for both areas including boosting radiance and hydration levels, reducing puffiness and tackling dark circles – this is the perfect product for anyone who wants to use as few products as possible in their routine. The little red spheres are oil-based, whilst the gel the spheres sit within is water-based, then when you pump the product the two elements combine, so you’re getting the best of both worlds in a single product. I have just received this so I’ll write a full review soon; my skincare routine is almost perfect at the moment, but I WILL find space for this somewhere to give it a good go and let you know how I get on! It’s £70 here – link.
