As you all know I love trying new skincare! I will use anything, any brand, at any price point. I want to discover everything that works and share it with all of my followers! This is a product I received in my FabFitFun Spring Box, and was super excited to start using it. I’ve used random Murad products before, but never one of their moisturizers. This one specifically excited me because it’s a skin perfecting lotion, so I thought that meant it would correct my discoloration and blemishes.
Let’s start with what I like most about this moisturizer. I love how it feels on my skin. It soaks right in and doesn’t sit on the surface. There’s no oily film left to make me feel weighed down, and it does its job of hydrating well. I really like that it helps control the shine throughout the day.
What I discovered about this lotion though, is that it didn’t help with evening my complexion or discoloration. I don’t know if it’s just my really light skin tone that isn’t easily corrected or if it just didn’t work on me. I’d like to know how it worked for someone with a darker skin tone.
It DID however make my lines look softer. It does contain a light amount of retinol, which I assume is the ingredient responsible. I noticed that it softened the lines on my forehead, which really bug me so I am really excited about that!
I would probably rate it a 4/5. It’s good for any skin tone, but I’d recommend it for someone specifically with a dry to normal skin type. It retails for $40.
