Murad Review

The folks at Murad sent us two products from their Age Reform Line to try. First was Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture for Eyes. This product is designed to give a more youthful appearance by increasing hydration around the eyes to smooth fine lines, firm and awaken the eye area.
It is a light, non-greasy consistency that has a cool, slightly tingling sensation. I probably used more than I needed, but it felt great and I do think it helped diminish the lines around my eyes. A .5 oz jar retails for $60.

Next was Intensive Resurfacing Peel made with Dr. Murad's latest beauty innovation, Durian Cell Reform, a blend of glycolic acid and durian, an Asian superfruit used to help prolong skin's youthful state and in this product's case, may even turn back time.

I received 4 treatments, each .17 oz tube contains just enough product for a single application. I have to admit I was a little hesitant to try this after reading the instructions which call for leaving the product on for 10 minutes and warned for sensitive skin, you may only be able to leave it on a few minutes because the product is intense. This was also my first experience using a peel and I have heard some horror stories from friends how their skin peeled for days and looked like snakeskin after using another brand's product.

Although I have sensitive skin, I was able to leave the product on for the full 10 minutes with the first application with absolutely no irritation. My skin felt smooth after using it, but I didn't see any significant improvement as far as my wrinkles. The second application also remained for 10 minutes and there was a noticeable difference in the lines around my eyes; they were definitely smoother and not as deep or pronounced. YAY! This is the first product I can recall seeing a marked improvement in just 2 applications. Paging Dr. Murad: Please report to our office with a lifetime supply! ☺ Seriously, the good doctor may have discovered an alternative to Botox and plastic surgery with his Intensive Resurfacing Peel. By the way, my skin did not peel at all! {This could be due to using the Clarisonic twice a day, there just isn't much dead skin left to slough away}. A box of 4 treatments retails for $45 or 12 treatments for $165. Available at
