Murad® skincare products may be found in the aisles and shelves of many pharmacies, discount drug stores and department stores throughout the nation. They have created a rather extensive line that works to address a variety of skin related issues, such as genetic aging, environmental aging and hormonal aging, as well as acne, sun protection, redness, normal skin, men’s health and cellulite. In terms of anti-aging Murad®’s Day Reform Treatment has experienced a spike in sales, but this line and its products seems to have disappointed many consumers, who subsequently scored it poorly in terms of results.

Beenigma - Premium All-In-One Bee Venom Face Cream
We are so pleased to bring this formula to you and have found that Beenigma is the premium choice among Bee Venom face creams in the entire world. New Zealand, where the premium Beenigma face cream is manufactured - is located in the South Pacific at the bottom of the world. There are very few places on earth offering such unspoiled wilderness and purity in flora and fauna. It is this purity and beauty that inspires the very core of the Beenigma cream. The Beenigma story is a new story with old origins. It began in Auckland, New Zealand where the Beenigma team undertook research into Apitherapy and specifically the use of Bee Venom as a means to fight the signs of aging. It has been discovered that topically applied Bee Venom directly nurtures cell regeneration, assists in collagen formation and even helps in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. The more the Beenigma team learned, the more they were amazed by Bee Venom and its incredible rejuvenating effects. Read a Full review of Beenigma here.

kate: everyone has that one area of her life – mind, body, whatever- about which she is so sensitive that she will try/buy anything to make it better, more suitable or beautiful, right? or is that just me… I was totally turned on by Murads anti-cellulite commerical, with that must be said. I hate that no matter how little fat I consume and how many miles I run the backs of my thighs are sorta lumpy and gross. I have been applying the cream for over a month and administering the supplement just as directed and it looks the same – so awful! NOt recommended.

Deena: Several months ago I began the Age Reform Night Regimen from Murad, and I like the cleanser, it keeps my skin soft, and the night cream is fine, nothing great about it but it moisturizes I suppose. I don’t really like the night reform treatment, though, it seems to dry out my skin. i’ve been leaving it out of the regimen for the past two weeks and my skin is not so dry. but i’ve seen no other improvements thus far.

pixiedust_1968: aging is a total nightmare! my butt is fatter but my skin is thinner? you’re not playing fair, Ms. God! I am getting the Murad Resurgence regimen today!!! fingers crossed now!

helen: I bought the Resurgence Night regimen from Murad for a wopping $167, mostly bcs it claimed to address “hormonal aging.” My hormones have always been a bit out of whack, i’ve always had terrible PMS and it got worse after my second daughter was born. So. i hoped maybe this could help with the aging and just the overall problem. boy was i disasppointed….the very opposite occured, my mood fluctuations got worse, my skin started to breakout, it was just awful, like 24/7 PMS for an entire month. Never again.

Griet: not so fast, there. I’ave been using the cream, serum, cream combo for months and while they all smell nice and feel light, I still look my age! I wanted brighter, firmer skin and Murad did not deliver.

Rebecca: Well the Oil Free tinted sunblock from Murad still made my face too shiny. I’m still taking those sungard supplements though, don’t know if they’re working but i guess it can’t hurt to take em.

Estelle: Being a caffeine addict, I had no hesitation ordering the Moisture Eye Silk Gel from Murad. It feels pretty sticky, though, not silky, and it doesn’t quite “wake up” my eyes the same way my coffee does. Big disappointment.

julianna: Well i saw something about the Murad Cellulite treatment on TV, so i had to give it a try…it does seem to make my skin soft, but so far i don’t think i have seen any difference in my cellulilte. The flab is still quite cottage cheesy as far as i can tell, and it has been 7 weeks. Can anybody tell me whether they got results from this? Should you be on a diet too?

Marietta: When I saw the TV offer for the Acne Complex it seemed like a good deal so I ordered it. It turned out to be a waste of money though, definitely didn;t get my skin clear. Would not recommend.

farah: with mid life change fast approaching my skin is all of a suddent behaving bizarrely. I think I have developed Rosacea?? maybe and look red anf flushed in even moderate heat. I love the crazy amount C in Murad’s Redness Therapy Regimen but I wonder if I just need to up my C and zinc intake (I used to be hooked on Zicam) and find another beauty product that will also address my crow’s feet and flabby chin skin?

kris: Hi I bought the entire Cellulite Treatment Regimen from Murad, cost me $210. But i thought it would be worth it…it is supposed to deliver results within 8 weeks. Well it’s now been 17 weeks i have been using the cream and the supplement, and nothing is happenging to by body at all. I have not been on a diet, but i think that since i bought these products, i shouldn’t have to. Anyway, it has been a disappointment for me.

jessie: There’s something i dont like about Murad, and that is the “recommended regimens” they try to sell. This is for all areas of skin care, aging, acne, cellulite etc. For each one they try to sell you this “package” that comes with several different “recommended” products. These packages almost always cost at leasst $100 and closer to $200. I just don’t like a company that tries to sell you these expensive and possibly over rated packages.

Lexi: So I ordered the Murad Environmental Shield day regimin for the vitamin c protection. Been using for 3 weeks, have had no reactions, which is a good sign. I supose its giving me some protection when I use it, but so far, I don’t think its reversing any damage. And i spend a lot of time in the sun, so my skin needs help. Maybe this will be better if I keep using it but it’s hard to tell right now.

magnapop: I was stoked to try Murad’s acne formula. I have pores I could keep a lipstick in and suffer the occasional breakout despite being an almost full-fledged grown-up. I went in for the entire package – Cleanser, treatment gel and Lotion. The lotion may be one of the best I have found for my skin type but the cleanser smells very clinical (like hospital waiting room) and the acne zapper burns like a mofo. that I will definitely not be using again.

ellin: well, at least Murad lets you return stuff. I wish the products worked tho.

Melina: The Murad Anti-Aging Acne Treatment turned my skin red, I just used it yesterday. IS this normal??

Elsie: I live part time LA and other months in Mexico City. two cities not known for pristine environmental conditions! I am using Murad’s Environmental/Age line because I fear the smog and pollutants are causing my skin to age prematurely. Fresh, citrusy smell is pleasant but I don’t think I look any less sunken and haggard. will keep trying for a few more weeks before I give up on this stuff.

nikki: hi, there….good website thx for all the info. My question is, these skincare supplements from Murad. Are they any good? What’s in them?

Kyle: I don’t mind the advice from Murad. I don’t know much about cleansers and other products and I like the idea of having an internal/external system that covers all the bases. I am not crazy about the prices of their supplements and will not be buying those here.

Tillie May: This Cellular Serum from Murad feels nice when it absorbs into my skin, my biggest complaint is the pump on the bottle. Every time I use it, too much comes out. So I’m wasting like half of it every single day. I had to waste anything that I have to pay good money for.

althea: How do you KNOW whether your aging is Environmental, Hormonal Or Genetic? All i know is i have wrinkles and i want them gone. This company confuses me.

elise.belk: The Renewing Eye Cream feels sticky, heavy, and never blends in. I use it now only in the morning to reduce puffiness. I apply it, wait and wash it off. That seems to work okay. I am no longer interested in the Murad line. Glad I wasn’t burned too badly.

SCARLETT: Every time I walk out the door and into the streets of New York City I can practically FEEL the toxins clinging to my skin. So the Murad City Skin Detox treatment seemed like heaven in a bottle. That is, until after I washed it off, only to find rashes and tiny bumps in place of the product. This was more like a living hell, Im afraid.

Emily: I was so excited about the lighten and brighten eye cream from Murad. It sounded like it was made just for me, because dark under eye circles are my exact problem! The first week i didn’t notice anything. i figured, well i need to give it time. But then the second week, i noticed the skin around my eyes, esp. at the corners, was burning and red. Soon after that the skin started peeling. It literally burned my skin! I DEFINITELY will not be buying this again.

Louise: on first blush Murad appears clean and simple. shabby chic with a science boost. but look at all those ingredients. I prefer something simpler. Argireline and Matryxl are my new pet ingredients that I am going to be looking for. that’s just my humble opinion…

Daisy: It was nice getting some free samples from Murad when I ordered online, although, I didn’t really like those products. At least I didn’t pay for them, so now I know.

cara: i love the smell of the exfoliating fruit Enzyme Mask from Murad! Delish,

basilE: I think The Murad Products are delicious. every time i use the Intensive wrinkle reducer I feel like I am one step closer to a more youthful face. I hate to be the voice of dissent, but this stuff kind of rocks!

Johanna: The Murad Waterproof Sunblock for Face & Body should really only be used for the body, in my opinion. It kept me from getting burned on my shoulders, where the sun usually hits me, but it felt too greasy on my face and made me breakout. I guess, I didnt get burned, but still, I wouldn’t use it there again.

wilyKOT: Have you tried the Resurgence line? I can’t decide if I should try Murad or another product I found online.

donna: The Essential-C Daily Renewal Complex from Murad was just too harsh for my skin. It felt odd and powdery going on, and then it caused a lot of irritation and red blotches my face. I think maybe vitamin C might be a tad too acidic. I felt like i actually looked older from using this.

demeter: I was just wondering what happened to Joan Lunden. She looks a little orange here; I hope that doesn’t happen to me. I don’t want to look shiny or stunned or weird. I just want to look like me. but a teensy bit younger.

Bree: My skin is very fair and so I tend to get burned really, really easily. I use the Murad Age Proof Self Tanner to give my skin some color and it works okay. Plus it gives me some extra hydration, and I just hope it will help prevent me from looking any older. I will probably want to try something to reverse those lines I do have already but have not found anything yet.

jules: the murad intensive wrinkle reducer is actullly softening my skin some, but it also its giving me PIMPLES! right now, i am not sure which is worse, wrinkels or pimples, i might have to stick with the wrinkles if this doesn’t get beter.

theresa: Hm, i don’t know which way my thumb should go on this one….I recently tried the Acne Prone Skin Formula, and it did seem to cut back on my zits. HOWEVER, the exfoliation is RIDICULOUS! i wish they could make it kind of subtle….instead of my skin coming off in large patches like i have leprosy or something. It was humiliating. SO, i guess this leaves me at a ? question mark, bcs i liked the anti-acne thing, but i wish there was something that worked without doing THIS to my face.

Mona: I have used Estee Lauder skin care, make up and perfume all my life. I started to worry that I was in a rut so I went out (the the almighty Internet!) and discovered Murad (you know how one thing leads to another here) felt good about the product initially (isn’t that always the way). It seemed youthful and bright and fun but after about a month I noticed my skin was flaking around my mouth and my skin seemed less firm. I had lost my glow. I switched back to EL, my own little experiement, and changed nothing else in my beauty routine, and wouldn’t you know it, my skin looked hydrated and radiant again. I don’t know what it is about Murad – what it is lacking or includes – but I am throwing everything I ordered from them in the trash today!

Lucinda: The Murad Energizing Body Polish (pomegranate) is VERY nice, makes my skin smooth. I like this beter than the other Murad product I ordered, the age diffusing serum, which jsut felt sticky and smelled weird.

Dawn: The Clarifying Body Spray from Murad smells nice & is refreshing. Fun stuff!

Olga: So after much debate I finally bought the Renewing Eye Cream from Murad. It was supposed to reduce fine lines and puffiness and increase hydration. If I wanted to get rid of dark circles, I needed to get the brightenign treatment and I didn’t want to buy 2 products. I suppose this is giving me some moisture but it is not al that effective. Plus I ahve really dark circles. I’m not to happy with these.

Catherine: what do we know about this Dr. Murad? I read somewhere that he is a pharmacist??

Michael: The Essential C Renewal Complex was great for a while. Now that it is getting warm I seem to be reacting poorly to this intense moisturizer and think I have to switch to something more suitable.

marlowe: I have some seriously ugly stretch marks on my belly and thighs. I lost quite a bit of weight over the course of this past year and I am desperate to show off my figure. But I want to be perfect. I have been using the Murad cellulite 8 week program for almost three months and not much has changed. Im taking the supplement and everything and now I fear it’s all a big scam.

Kira: The Murad Moisture Silk Gel left my skin looking flaky, and really didn’t do much. My eyes are still puffy. I’ve been looking at all the products and they don’t seem to have one from Murad that does it all.

Rhonda: Those before and afters are pretty impressive. My skin isn’t nearly that nasty so I wonder if it is too intense for me.

Carrie: Well that is interesting what you said Olga about the eye products. I wasn’t sure which one to buy either, but since my dark circles bother me most, i went with the Lightening and Brightening. Well, i was quite disappointed. it did nothing for the circles….maybe i should try the Renewing EYe cream instead.

grammajean: well i did like having a free gift with the special tv offer on my order of resurgence from murad. i like free things. i have been loooking around the internet for other deals and you know, some companies offer free samples of the products, im gonna check out those deals once i;m done with the resurgence, it is not quite as good as i’d hoped.

mags: the combination skin formulation is making a big difference in my skin’s consistency. I mean how consistent it is. before I never would know if a break out would pop up or if my forehead would look cracked adn dry. things are looking up for the summer.

dani: Well i bought Resurgence thinking that my skin was wrinkled due to hormonal aging, but now i think my problem is really Environmental Aging.

tiffany: the free sample with every order is clever but not the way they think. I absolutely would have ordered everything and now I don’t have to. Murad products all have a very off smell to me and the lotions don’t work at all for me. My skin became irritated and dry. thank goodness I only bought the one sunblock.

Helena F.: As some have mentioend, Murad has quite a few different eye treatments, and I didn’t find any to be all that effective. I began using Hydroleyes maybe 2 months ago, and it’s helped my fine lines disappear, plus the dark circles are gone. Lovely product, I got it here http://www.hydroleyes.com/ and overall I think its a much better deal than Murad.

gabrielle: But aren’t wrinkles wrinkles, whether they are caused by the environment or by hormones or heredity? So why doesn’t Murad have collagen? I read that ingredient works on all kinds of wrinkles!

Mandee: The Murad Soothing Lip Therapy is okay as a balm but it does not exfoliate quite like Kiss Me (Philosophy). It’s slightly overpriced as a simple lip balm, but I do like how it tastes.

Linda: It seems like a lot of the Murad SUnscreens provide SPF 15. Isn’t there anything stronger? I need a lot of sun protection.

Jgal: an internal defense against breakouts? unlikely. the only thing that works for me is Proactive. I am in the unlucky position of having both a bit of adult acne and fine lines around my eyes. 40 is the new 20, right?! I bought into the Murad line and spent a lot of my husband’s money of the goods. so far the only thing I can say that is positive is that the pomegranate scrub feels good on my skin. waiting and wondering. thanks for listening, Jgal

loretta: have never been able to find a decent age spot treatment, but i think i may have found it with the one from murad. i was assured that the redness and peeling was normal, and it will take 3 months for my skin tone to change. i suppose it must be working since i have dryness and peeling skin after the first week.

alice: Helena F.: Thank you SO MUCH for the tip and that link on the dark circle product. I have been looking for a treatment for my dark circles FOREVER!! this is such a helpful website, love it!

Sabine: I actuallt has an okay experience with the murad formula for normal/combo skin and am surprised that others are rather unahppy. for wrinkles I do use another product that I will not name. I should say it contains collagen, though and that is all that works for me.

Manda: I tried the Pomphenol Sunguard Dietary Supplement from Murad….I can’t stand greasy, heavy sunscreen, so i thought just taking a pill would be perfect. Well i must have misunderstood this product…i fried up as red as a lobster the next time i went out in the sun! it was AWEFUL!

lablovver646: I never thought I would be the sort of person to talk about my health and hygiene habits in a forum such as this. It seems a little unseemly. but I can’t let other women make the same mistake I did. I use Murad for a month, I didn’t care for it and when i called to discuss return policy I was told that they could not restore my money at this time. I am pretty incensed. I only tried it because I thought it was risk free. I never spend money like this and now I have all these products that don’t work taking up space in my bathroom.

Jana: I enjoyed Dr. Murad’s book “Wrinkle Free Forever” …it was a good read!

mary: Yeah, i also read “Wrinkle Free Forever” by Dr. Murad….they should classify that book as FICTION.

heather: Murad’s Acne Wash is a pleasant experience….it’s a nice blue color, smells very springlike and fresh, and it has gentle little exfolitaing microbeads. I enjoy it. My acne hasn’t much changed, but this is just a little treat i give myself.

elaine: MURAD PRODUCTS ARE INEFFECTIVE AND OVERHYPED AND THEY COST WAY TOO MUCH I WOULD NOT WASTE MY TIME OR MONEY

Patti: I was chatting with this waitress at my local diner recently (they remind me of my childhood) and she told me about Murad. She said it was pricey but worth it. She looked great so I tried it. It has now been exactly 2 weeks and 3 days and I see no difference in my appearance. The cleanser is good enough but the lotion doesn’t work on my super dry skin. maybe all the grease is good for your skin. (no offense!)

tresor_129: I think the anti-cellulite line from Murad worked a little bit. In the spirit of full disclosure, though, i should add that I have also been jogging an hour a day. So it is probably a combination.

madameX: The wrinkle cream I used to use is no longer available. In the market for something youthful and innovative I tried Murad. I am out the supplement and almost through the products and probably will not reorder. I am interested in supplements now more than ever and am looking for a good one for weight management and acne control. is that too much to ask? I am going to check out that eye cream someone mentioned. cool! thanks!

charlotte: haha, well I don’t know what diner you go to, Patti, but the waitresses at MY local diner look pretty rough. They all smoke too, I def. would not want their skin.

VanessaBell: right, exactly, tresor. It was my baby faced 30 year old kid who told me about Murad. She said, “Mom you will look so great! I’ve been using it for months” She gave me a sample and so far I see no results. No plan to get my own if nothing happens here soon. She can stay up all night and still look fresh as a daisy. I need something for a real woman, not this preen teen crap.

tina: well i DO like the essential c cleanser, it smells nice and my skin feels fresh. not fond of any murad creams, though, and i think if the cellulite is gone, it’s from the jogging, bcs i still have mine.

Amber: The Age Reform Nigh Regimen requires some time, patience and money. As the mother of 2 4 year olds I have precious little of all of those. I can’t say that I see fewer lines as yet but the pampering is a special treat for this tired mommy.

genevive: I thought Murad’s Anti-Aging supplements were just like any other supplements you’d get from Walgreen’s. Nothing special at all, and i didn’t see any improvements to my skin.

Edna: Sometimes I get acne around my bra line, esp with the sports bras, and the Murad Clarifying Body Spray has helped to clear it up some.

Jemma: When you choose a product line from Murad do you have to buy all three? I have a night cream I love but would like to try their cleanser for sensitive skin.

aka_diane: I liked the idea of the CitySkin Detox Treatment….i’ve been wanting to do some kind of detox for a while. Sadly, it didn’t do anything for me. I heard some people do a detox where they put patches on their feet, maybe i will give that a try next.

Terri Jo: The Hydrating Gel Mask from Murad was actually one of the better purchases I’ve made from Murad, which surprised me, I didn’t expect much from it. But it has made my skin less dry, even though I have not noticed a change in my skin tone. Maybe over time?

clinton: Be advised women. This stuff doesn’t work. It’s all too alike!

Claudia: Well at least I have ruled out “hormonal” and “genetic” for my factors in aging, I have come down to it being “environmental” and I really hope that these Murad products do the trick for my skin this time.

lala4: I tried murads night creme, it was a bit too oily for my tastes.

Jocelyn: Are you saying that rubbing cream on your butt won’t make cellulite disappear? shocking…

kylie: the renewing cleansing cream is okay, it is not drying or anything but i don’t know, would it work better with the cream? i have not seen any skin renewal using this, as of yet.

Penelope: In the past I never have liked toners for my skin I always thought they were pointless but I got a sample of this Clarifying Toner from Murad and it feels nice, does not sting or anythign, like some do. Don’t know if I;ll buy more, but it was good to find an acceptable toner.

Nina_NJ: I tried Resistance and I think it’s okay. I’d give it a B. not the brilliant anti-wrinke miracle as advertised, but what, after all, is as good as you had hoped.

joan: Well, all of it makes sense to me now….I thought the Resurgence was going to be a wonderful solution for my Hormonal Aging problems. Maybe i should not have started on a new birth control pill at the same time, that could have added to my trouble. 4 days after starting this regimen, my skin started breaking out in terrible, painful white heads and blackheads, very prominent. It was so embarrassing. And i started noticing that i was much more sensitive than usual, very irritable and annoyed by everything. ONe night just the sound of my husband chewing his food was enough to send me over the edge. That’s crazy, right? I had no idea what was happening to me…but as the acne got worse, i figured, well, this skin treatment is not so good. So i stopped it. After that, things settled down a lot. I started feeling much more stable and “normal.” I would never put myself through this again.

Carolyn_A: Thought for the price Murad was gonna be the one, i had head a lot about it. I tried the serum and used it till the bottle was nearly gone. I still have the bottle and the wrinkles I was trying to address. Thumbs down.

Wendy: The Anti-Aging treatments I’ve tried just don’t seem very effective from Murad. I thought the Night Reform treatment would help wiht the fine lines, and it doesn’t seem to do much of anything, so far.

Terri: Thanks for all your reviews gals. I had always wondered about this one…I will pass.

Marguerite: Cannot yet tell if the Youth Builder supplements are making a difference but its easier for me to take them than to rub that drying serum on my face. I sure hope they do something, they weren’t cheap.

Gloria: I got the Resurgence Night regimen from Murad and it cost way over $100. I am not very pleased with this product and would not buy it again.

Yolanda: Don’t waste ur money on Murad, there’s better stuff out there! I thought it was Okay, but nothing special and def. not for those prices.

G.smith: Was hoping Murads Resurgence would help make me look younger but AFTER 6 months of using it, it has not worked. Still searching…

Linda: I have used Murad’s Combination Skin Treatment for 20 years and it seems to be disappearing. Does anyone know anything about this. Has it been discontinued? Thanks

Girl From Baltimore: I’ve gone to the Dermatologist for my Acne problem for years. I’ve used many skin care products and internal medications to also include the prescription drug Accutane. Don’t waste your money on Murad, Proactive or anything else. It’s all a joke. Plus they all make to many products to use. Who has all of that time. If someone does come up with something that would work they need to have a one step product. ( A one step product )

Kathy: I’m 26, with very sensitive skin and I’ve used Murad for about 2 years, the Essential C Night Cream as a day cream during the winter and the Correcting Moisturizer in the summer. After trying many many MANY other products, this is the only combination that works for me. My skin feels so calm and I honestly think it looks brighter (especially during the winter months). Maybe when I eventually need the anti-aging products I’ll think differently, but with my younger skin I’m fairly pleased with the results.

NewYorker: Well I read all of the comments and I will have to see for myself I guess. I just ordered a bunch of Murad products a few days ago. I did research before I ordered and found tons of happy customers so these complaints are sort of surprising. I guess it works for some and not for others or it is just personal preference to how it feels. :) Hopefully I’ll remember to come back and give a review later.


Murad®

It may be very confusing to figure out which product is the best fit for you and which one is the most effective, simply due to the sheer volume of skincare products available. Many consumers are already familiar with Murad® skincare products because they are found on the aisles and shelves of many pharmacies, discount drug stores and department stores throughout the nation.

Murad® is one of those products that many of us may grab by habit, because we have used it in the past to ease dry skin or address other issues. Murad®’s anti-aging products, however, may not have received strong ratings on consumer sites in terms of its effectiveness. We do look at this information, but it is only a small part of the research we do to determine a products viability.

We will take a brief look at this line and one of their more popular products— Murad® Day Reform Treatment to get an idea of what this line is all about.

 Products at a Glance
The Murad® skincare line is rather extensive, and includes products geared toward a variety of skin related issues, such as genetic aging, environmental aging and hormonal aging, as well as acne, sun protection, redness, normal skin, men’s health and cellulite.

 Products in Focus
When we first looked at formula for Murad®’s Day Reform Treatment we were immediately struck by the fact that it does not appears to contain any elements that may directly affect Collagen production or the level of Hyaluronic Acid found in the skin. We believe this was a huge oversight on their part. This is especially true for a product that is prominently featured in their genetic aging line.

They actually used a variety of “all-natural” extracts, which may have some role in skin health, but they are not the kind of heavy weight skincare agents many of us need. Salicylic Acid is an element that is actually found in many skincare products that are geared toward easing acne, callouses, corns and psoriasis, as well as other conditions. It is an anti-irritant because it is closely related to aspirin.

Aspalathus Linearis Leaf Extract is Latin for Rooibos Tea, which is a known antioxidant that may assist in warding off some environmental skin damage. It is also used to address allergic dermatitis, nervous tension and various digestive problems. Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Seed Oil is also a powerful antioxidant that contains a plethora of vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids. Some of these elements have anti-inflammatory properties, so it is often used to address eczema, psoriasis and other skin conditions.

Morinda Citrifolia Fruit Extract AKA Noni, has gotten a lot of play in the holistic market these days due to its purported health benefits. It has been suggested to be useful for addressing cancer and high cholesterol, as well as being a powerful antioxidant. However, its ability to promote skin health has not been determined, nor have the claims made about this product been backed by actual human studies.

 Lifestyle
This formula is clearly rich in antioxidant support, which is great for helping repair sun and environmental damage that may accelerate the visual signs of aging. However, that’s only half the job, many of us need more support that this formula, and many of the products in this line are able to offer. This may be another reason so many consumers have consistently scored these products low in terms of results. Collagen is a vital part of skin health, and as we mentioned above its production degrades over time.

Also sun damage may reduce the production of both Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid. Collagen is often called the glue that holds our skin together, and Hyaluronic Acid is used to keep the skin supple and smooth, due to its ability to naturally hydrate the skin. Many of the more effective and focused products will include Real Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid in their formulas, because supplementation with them has been shown to be able to bring the skin back into balance.

 Positives
• May contain many antioxidants


 Negatives
• May be quite expensive
• May not restore Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid levels


 Final Thoughts
In general, while the Murad® product line is presented as being a hard hitting anti-aging line, it is really very low key, using elements that offer antioxidant support rather than effective anti-wrinkle technology. For instance, Murad®’s Day Reform Treatment is purported to be able to assist individuals in easing wrinkles, but it seems more focused on preventing sun and environmental damage, which is great, but this method does not offer individuals a way to minimize wrinkles, facial lines or sagging.

It may not contain any elements that promote the restoration of Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid levels. Deficiencies in these elements may actually accelerate the aging process, so we believe that restoring and balancing their levels is very important. This product may also be quite expensive, which is not inherently an issue; however, we feel that the pedestrian ingredients included in its formulary do not warrant this high sticker price. In the end, we had no choice but to agree with the negative ratings we found posted on consumer-driven scoring sites. To put it simply, we believe there are much more effective products on the market that contain proven ingredients. We believe people should never settle for less than the best when it comes to skincare—and Murad® products may not be the best.
