~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



~Fall Skin Care Review~ Olay ProX Advanced Cleansing System....

For my birthday ( September 23) I bought the Olay ProX Advanced Cleansing System. I've been wanting one for a long time...really, I can't come off the coins RIGHT NOW for a Clarisonic System. I actually bought my Olay brush system at CVS....It goes towards your Beauty Bucks and I had $9 in EBs saved away so I got it for $20.00 minus tax. That is cheaper than my local Walmart at $26.99.




The Olay Advanced Cleansing System includes a 2-speed facial cleansing brush and a exfoliating renewal cleanser. I tossed the cleanser in my product stash since I wash my face with black soap, my current preferred cleanser.



Pros:
-ADDICTIVE. LOL! Its feels so good on the face. The bristles are soft but effective enough for a good scrub.
-Leaves the skin super, extra clean. Black Soap by itself is super cleansing but add the ProX brush...and its extra clean.
-Inexpensive. I didn't spend a student loan payment to buy it....and that makes me happy.:)
-It works the curves of your face very good. It got around my nose and creases very well and I have a bit of eczema in the creases of my nose, the brush scrubbed right off.
-The grip of the brush is also effective...I used it one night with a slippery facial scrub and didn't once drop it or did it slip out of my hand.

Cons:

-NONE. Unless you buy it at Target or Walmart for a higher price with no Extra Bucks or coupons or savings back.:)

Consensus:

I don't use it EVERYDAY. Its quite addictive but I noticed if I over exfoliate my skin, I get acne. So I actually have pretty sensitive skin. I use it for my weekly scrub or I use it every three days...so about twice a week. If you purchase the Olay ProX brush, test it out for yourself to see how it works for your skin. I've read where people use it everyday, that might work for you or it might not. Its worth every penny I hustled to get it for it!  BUY IT!!
