Tried and Tested: Murad Skincare


A few weeks ago, I received a gift from Murad skin care. It is the first Doctor skin care brand in the world and is present in more than 40 countries so of course, I’m excited to try it out!

Founded by Dr. Howard Murad in 1989, the company offers 130 high-performance, science-based, topical and internal skin care products.

The Murad Recipe

  • Antioxidants to neutralize cell damaging free radicals
  • Anti-inflammatories to reduce inflammatory damage
  • Hydrators to optimize the strength of skin’s barrier

The basics of skin care: CTM = cleanse, tone, moisturize! However, the Murad Method is slightly different: 

  1. Cleanse/Tone
  2. Treat/Repair
  3. Hydrate/Protect

For cleansing/toning, I received Murad Daily Cleansing Foam


This dual-action foam deep cleans to remove dirt and oil while tightening the pores. It has Witch Hazel and copper Gluconate to remove excess oil without stripping the skin of its natural moisture. It also has Pomegranate and Japanese Alder Flower extracts to revitalize and provide antioxidant benefits. The AHA’s gently exfoliate while Sodium PCA leaves skin feeling balanced.

To use: apply and massage to wet face then rinse with warm water. Tip: a single pump of foam will do! Follow up with step 2 – Treat/Repair:

Murad Pomegranate Exfoliating Mask


This product dissolves dull, dry skin to keep looking fresh and clear while restoring smoothness and brightens. To use: Massage evenly over clean face and neck. Leave on for 10 – 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and then pat dry. 

My notes: It feels cool and a little tingly but it goes away after a while.  

Step 3: Hydrate/Protect with Murad Anti-Aging Moisturiser – Broad Spectrum SPF20|PA +++


I am most excited for this one! I finished my tube of moisturiser when I received the gift so I am definitely up to try a new product. “Anti-Aging” is just what I needed on top of the SPF protection!

A little goes a long way for this product. It doesn’t fee oily or greasy at all and it is easily absorbed by the skin. Aside from the SPF protection, it also plumps the skin to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. WIN!!

*Products are dermatologist developed and tested on people, not animals* — another win! Will I buy again? YES!
