murad-Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream. CLAIMS: Retinol-Tri-Active Technology with a combination of a fast-acting Retinoid, a time-released Retinol and a Retinol booster quickly and visibly minimizes lines, wrinkles and smooths texture. Swertia Flower Extract-Breakthrough technology inspired by regenerative medicine, helps increase skin's resilience to boost firmness and elasticity. Peptide-rich Red Algae Extract-Improves skin firmness and elasticity while soothing skin. MY RESULTS: I've been using this cream since the end of May so I've gave it a good test over the last 3 months. I love that the cream comes in a completely encased packaging so it ensures that it stays fresh and hygienic. I also like that it pumps out because the amount that comes out is enough to cover your face, neck and chest, so this saves you using too much product. It's a rich cream but absorbs extremely fast, and doesn't feel heavy or greasy on the skin at all. Since using it I've noticed that my skin feels a lot smoother and softer and it's definitely improved fine lines and wrinkles around my eye area. Obviously it's not completely got rid of linesbecause nothing will do that short of Botox or other treatments.I've noticed that it's actually lightenedpigmentation that I had on my chest which was an added bonus. This product layers well with other products, I've layered it with retinol, serums and oils and it doesn't pill with me at all.I can have quite sensitive skin but this causes no reactions on me at all. My skin tolerated it really well. This has become a compulsory staple in my skincare routine now.
Murad-Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream
I’m doing little mini reviews on my fav La Mer items. lamer - cleansing oil. CLAIMS: Designed with precious marine oils that are bio-compatible with the skin. The Cleansing Oil is the optimal first step to any daily cleansing regime. As The Cleansing Fluid is massaged into the skin, circulation is improved. Magnetised Tourmaline enables The Cleansing Oil to gently, yet effectively, dissolve excess sebum, deeply cleansing the pores without disrupting skin's natural balance. Skin is detoxified as stubborn, hard-to-remove makeup is lifted away, leaving skin feeling pristine. Known for its therapeutic properties, ionising sea salt osmotically remineralises the skin. MY RESULTS: I’ve been using this cleansing oil for a year now. This is only my second bottle and as you can see there’s hardly any out of it so although this is on the expensive end for a cleanser it does last a long time. I massage half a pump onto dry skin and then add water until it milks up then I remove with wet cotton pads. This lifts up all traces of make up including waterproof mascara and does not sting the eyes. My skin is always so clean after use but it also feels really conditioned, and doesn’t leave a greasy oil residue afterwards. Once I finished this I originally thought it was nothing special and I wasn’t going to repurchase and bought something else, I lasted 7 days before I had to replace it. For me there is no other oil cleanser like this for removing make up. I simply cannot be without it. Even is your not wearing make up this cleanser removes any surface oil effectively and completely cleans the pores and removes any traces of SPF to prevent that from clogging pores, which can result in blackheads
LA MER-The Cleansing Oil
This is hands down the best eye cream EVER 😍 lamer - the eye balm intense. MY RESULTS: 🧡 I’ve used this solidly for 3 months now before reviewing because I’m super fussy with eye creams so it takes a lot to make the cut. 🧡 So when I first got it I thought OMG where is the rest of it because it came in a tiny pot, but the applicator you get with it actually picks up enough product for you to apply it without using too much. 🧡 This is a rich green formula, but it absorbs almost instantly and doesn’t leave a sticky, greasy texture at all. 🧡 On first use I could see instantly that it plumped lines up. It really hydrated under my eyes. The first month I never used the applicator to see if there was a difference. Once I started using the applicator I really noticed that it reduced puffiness and soothes. 🧡 After a months use I noticed that it had actually improved the lines around my eye area dramatically. 🧡 This product layers well with other products and doesn’t cause pilling. 🧡 My eyes are very sensitive and eye creams can cause them to sting and water but I never had any of these issues. 🧡 Make sits well on top, it prevents creasing or over drying that can be issues when applying make up. . 🧡 This is my must have can’t live without skincare item now 🙌
LA MER-The Eye Balm Intense
murad - City Skin Overnight Detox Moisturiser. MY RESULTS: 🧡 I’ve been using this product for 6 months now so it’s had a good test. 🧡 Like I mentioned for the Retinol cream it’s all encased which I love. 🧡 It’s a rich cream but it absorbs quickly and doesn’t feel heavy or leave an oily greasy residue. It also has a zesty scent which I love. 🧡 Since using this there has been a definite improvement in the dark spots from sun damage years ago. My skin looks a lot brighter now. 🧡 When I wake up in the morning my skin is hydrated and plump and was a lot brighter after the first use, but I saw more obvious differences in after a month of use. 🧡 This product didn’t cause me any irritations or side effects that you can normally experience when using Vitamin C products. 🧡 Like the Retinol Cream this product layers really well with serums and oils. I usually apply serums 5 minutes before following products, I’ve found this prevents products from pilling, and if I want to use an oil for an extra boost of hydration I just add a drop of two into the cream.
Murad-City Skin Overnight Detox Moisturizer
murad - Intensive C Radiance Peel. MY RESULTS: 🧡 I’ve been using this once a week for 3 months now and from the first use my skin felt so much softer and brighter. I like to do it before bed because it really preps my skin for the following serums and creams. 🧡 It took a month to notice any dramatic changes in pigmentation from sun damage, and I also found that my pores looked more refined, obviously pores don’t change size they only appear smaller because they’re clean. I also noticed that fine lines around my eyes had reduced. 🧡 You only need to apply a thin layer for it to be effective so 1 pump covers face and 2 pumps includes the neck and chest as well, so this product will last a long time. 🧡 It’s quite a thin consistency cream which makes it easy to spread evenly and thinly over the face. 🧡 When I first started using this I felt it tingling as it worked but as the time went on I no longer feel that since my skin has adjusted to it. 🧡 I use the City Skin Overnight Detox and tested that out a month on its own then from the 2nd incorporated this, I noticed a difference in how much more brighter my skin became using the both together. 🧡 This is one of the best peel masks I’ve ever tried. .
Murad-Intensive-C Radiance Peel
lamer - Cleansing Gel. MY RESULTS: 💚 I’ve been using this cleanser since May so I’ve given it a good test, and as you can see I’ve hardly even dented the amount in the bottle, you only need a half pump to get a good foam. 💚 I was a bit nervous about using this one because it’s more designed for oily/combination skin and I’m more normal/combo but it really does not strip the skin whatsoever. . 💚 I usually use this by foaming it up then applying all over my face then I use my Clarisonic and complete the 1 minute cleanse routine. My skin is left squeaky clean but again not dry, it still feels nice and conditioned. 💚 I always use this as a second cleanse at night but I used it to remove make up on a few occasions just to test out whether it works for that purpose and it does. Side note though don’t remove eye make up with it because it stings. I mean common sense would have told me that beforehand but you know I’m all about the review to test it out. 💚 It’s quite a thick gel consistency which makes it amazing for foaming up a lot once a little water is added. . 💚 This deeply cleanses skin even removing SPF which can clog pores. It just dissolves anything in its way.
