~Fall Skin Care Review~ Murad Intensive Resurfacing Peel

Thursday, October 13, 2011

And we are on a roll with RGBL's Fall Skin Care Reviews and next up is Murad Intensive Resurfacing Peel. I've only tried one peel, at home, and that was Philosophy Microdelivery Peel and I didn't see results. Fast forward almost six years later and I'm entering my mid-30s. I see fine lines in my forehead and I constantly battle hyper-pigmentation from my occasional acne. I was sent Murad Intensive Resurfacing Peel for review and I was interested in the claims of the product....check it out:


Combine the benefits of a peel with gentle
microdermabrasion to maximize the benefits of your Age
Reform® Intensives Regimen. Intensive Resurfacing Peel
features Dr. Murad’s newest beauty super fruit complex to
enhance the penetration of active ingredients to reveal
skin’s youthful glow and smooth away superficial lines.
  • Smooth superficial lines and wrinkles
  • Increase radiance
  • Improve skin texture and tone
  • Encourage collagen production


The kit I received is the picture above, it only had four in the box and I used it once a week, on Fridays.

Pros:
- After four weeks, once a week use, I saw that my skin was brighter, bright enough for me to make a foundation color change.
-My skin was also a bit evened out too however I still had my spot of hyper-pigmentation from the past acne...the peel just even out my complexion more, if that makes sense


Cons:
-I didn't see a change in the fine lines in my forehead at all.
-It burned with each application. I never got used to that. So if your skin in sensitive, beware.
-Expensive. The four pack is $45. I would never purchase this at that cost and it wasn't fully effective
-I tried to split the application...meaning used 1/2 the little bottle for one application but you can't...you have to use the whole thing.


Consensus:

I saw changes in my skin after four weeks of use but overall I wouldn't buy the peel on my own unless I had the funds to splurge.




I received a free product (or products) for review purposes. I did not receive any form of compensation from the company. All opinions are my own and not influenced in anyway. My reviews are my personal and honest opinions

Jamie,

I LOVE MURAD's products, they were a game changer for me. I saw results the very next day. Well worth the money.
