For An Exfoliating Cleanse

Murad AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser

“I’ve been using this cleanser two-to-three times a week and have really noticed a difference in my skin’s overall texture and appearance. I love how I get the benefits of exfoliation (thanks to the jojoba beads and salicylic, lactic and glycolic acids) but in the convenience of a cleanser. I have found it really suits my combination skin.”

-Charlotte Giddeon Powell, Buying Coordinator


For Smoother, More Radiant Skin

Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream

“Over the past year or so, I’ve started to notice signs of pigmentation on the top of my cheeks and around my eyes. Determined to address it during lockdown I’ve started using this Retinol Serum and my skin already looks brighter and more glowy and the pigmentation is less visible. Plus, it’s good for smoothing fine lines – win win!”

For Preventing and Clearing Breakouts

Murad Outsmart Blemish Clarifying Treatment

“I’ve tried a fair few spot treatments to help keep acne and blemishes at bay, but this has really helped to clear my skin over the past few weeks. Not only have I noticed less breakouts, this formula has also helped to clear existing ones I’d been struggling with. I’ve been using this all over at night before my usual moisturiser and I wouldn’t be without it now.”

-Samantha Nice, Copy and Editorial Writer


For A Refreshing Boost Of Hydration

Murad Nutrient Charged Water Gel

“This hydrating gel formula deserves a place in everyone’s bathroom cabinet, especially during the summer months. The cocktail of vitamins, minerals and peptides nourishes without leaving your skin feeling heavy or greasy. For me, it’s become a daily essential in the recent heatwave as it has a cooling effect and leaves my skin feeling refreshed and hydrated. Not to mention, the healthy glow it leaves behind.”

For Daily Protection

Murad Environmental Shield Essential-C Day Moisture SPF30

“What I love most about this product is that it’s truly multitasking, which is great for the summer as I don’t want too many layers on my skin. The broad spectrum sunscreen helps protect my skin from the sun, while the vitamin C and other antioxidants help to fight free radical damage and give a radiant glow. I’ve noticed my skin is much brighter and even.”

-Helena Drozd, Colour & Accessories Buyer


For Boosting Brightness

Murad Vita-C Glycolic Brightening Serum

“Since lockdown I’ve really started to notice that my skin was looking dull, so I started using this brightening serum every morning under my moisturiser. Combining potent vitamin C to boost radiance with glycolic acid to exfoliate dull surface cells, my skin finally has a nice glow to it just in time for summer. I love the fresh uplifting scent too.”
