Skin care Review Murad

I had been wanting to try the Murad Skin Care range for some time and decided to give the Achieve Ageless Complete Skin Renewal Kit a try to see if I liked it. I had previously been using the Victoria Principal Skincare range and after seeing the infomercials on tv (yes I fall for the infomercials) I wanted to give it a try and see if I liked it better. The Murad site itself was a bit too expensive for my liking of trying the product so I went ebay shopping. I found what I wanted and ordered a Kit. The kit I found was for day wear.

The Kit came with sample sizes of 1x Refreshing Cleanser 45ml/1.5oz 1x Perfecting Day Cream SPF30 21ml/0.7oz 1x Age Reform Complete Reform 10ml/0.33oz 1x Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture 7.5ml/0.25oz

The cleanser has a pleasant aroma and did leave my skin feeling clean. The Perfecting cream and Age Reform were fun to use and my favorite is the Hydro Dynamic 8 hour Ultimate Moisture. It really made my skin regain its moisture and kept it feeling great all day.

Murad did make a difference to my skin and encouraged me to try anther of their products with a focus on the evening skin care range. With a little bit of ebay shopping I found the Resurgence Evening Travel Kit.

Like the day skin care range I also enjoyed all that it offered. I wasn't as keen on the scent but it doesn't seem to linger and the Kit contained the following.

1.5 fl oz Renewing Cleansing Cream; 0.5 fl oz Hydrating Toner; 0.33 fl oz Age-Diffusing Serum; 0.6 fl oz Age-Balancing Night Cream. This is sold as a Travel Kit.

Will update when I have used this a bit longer but so far Murad has me hooked. If you want to give it a try shop around on ebay where you can get sample sizes for a great price before putting your hard earned money in to the full sizes.

2012 Welcome to the New Year

Bit of a late start to blogging for the year but better late than never. Happy Valentines to all and may your year be filled with lots of love and happiness. I am looking forward to spring and warm weather and getting outdoors again. Winter although mild this year in comparison to the past few years is still cold and I miss the warm summers of Australia and the salty ocean breezes which tend to cool things down at night. Simple things like the colour of the clouds as the sun sets or the fragrance of a jasmine vine are on the mind. Memories of looking out a window at the tall gum trees silhouetted against a clear blue sky and the melodic sound of the ever present wildlife in the background. New Years Resolution was to have a better year than the last (a resolution that should be within reach) and to live a healthier lifestyle. Blog more is on the "list" and I hope to do more random blogs soon. Until the next blog enjoy a memory.
