I have wanted to try the Murad products for quite some time. I first spied them lurking behind a sea of make-up, in a friends bathroom shelves. And as you do…. I found myself having a sneaky sniff and sample. What intrigued me most was the fact that my lovely friend (who is a very mild mannered person) is a total devotee and obsessed by Dr Murad and his products and ‘The Science of Cellular Water™’, So when the Murad Resurgence Age-Diffusing Firming Mask finally arrived at The Amazing Blog I pounced on the bottle…
For those of you who don’t know this brand Dr Murad is the founder of scientifically proven skincare, a true pioneer and a leading dermatologist. Based in the Murad Inclusive Health Spa in LA, Dr Murad's experience of his patient's skincare conditions inspired him to create skincare. These range from acne and redness to pigmentation and anti-ageing. He’s an author of a number of dermatology books including The Cellulite Solution, which was serialised in the Sunday Times. Murad celebrity fans include Leighton Meester (Gossip Girl), Fearne Cotton, Nicole Sherzinger, Holly Willoughby, Kimberley Walsh, Lily Cole and Emily Blunt
I’m not a big fan of putting water my face or for that matter face masks, however I persevered with the Murad Resurgence Age-Diffusing Firming Mask (Step 2). This formula promised to enhance skin elasticity, promote instant firming and to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The key ingredients include golden seaweed to restore resilience and the FirmQ2 complex to firm and lift. I found it almost fragrance free with only the most subtle bouquet of something that reminded me of a fresh bunch of grapes, I massaged on evenly over my face and neck. Left on as instructed for about 10 mins what I noticed was that it had a very ‘cooling’ effect both to the touch and on my skin. I then diligently rinsed it off. My skin definitely looked brighter, felt smoother and thankfully not tighter (something I hate). I don’t have the other recommended Step 1 (cleanse) or Step 3 (moisturiser) to try, butI did follow it with one of my current fav serums and moisturisers (you’ll have to wait to learn about those in my next posts!)
This was definitely like bringing the spa experience home and for a retail price of £59.50 for 50ml it is good value for money especially if you compare it what a series of say 5 facials would cost. Available from leading spas, salons and selected House of Fraser, Debenhams and M&S Your Beauty stores nationwide. To buy online and find your nearest stockist please visit here.
