Murad Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture Cream* and Exfoliating Cleanser*

Hello everyone :)

Hope you're all ok and not getting too down with all the crazy weather! Today I have a little review post for you of some lovely products I was lucky enough to receive from the people at Murad.

I've posted before (here) about a few Murad products and raved about how much I loved them, so I was excited to try these out. I was sent some information about the brand with these, going in to the science behind the products and how the ingredients work well to not only look after the skin and improve it's appearance, but also look after it. But it wouldn't be like me to go into all the sciencey stuff, so instead, I'm just going to talk about how I found them to use. 

I've been using them for around 2 weeks now, and couldn't be happier. The Exfoliating cleanser is something I've been using around 3 times a week to give my skin a little pick me up. The product is thin like a serum, but contains tiny exfoliating beads to get rid of dead skin in a gentle way. This is perfect for me, as I tend to get dry patches in winter, and struggle to find products gentle enough for my sensitive skin. This works really well. I haven't had a problem with dry skin since I started using it, and it doesn't leave my skin red and sore afterwards. It just feels really clean. 

The only downside for me personally is the consistency. The fact that it is quite runny means its hard to get a small amount of product out without wasting some, and it can be a bit messy. This didn't bother me too much, and is more a matter of personal preference. 

The moisturiser on the other hand, I can't fault. Both products are fragrance free, and feel kind and gentle when used. This makes it perfect for use around the delicate eye area and nose, which is where I mostly suffer from dry skin. This cream completely soothes my skin without feeling greasy, leaves my skin hydrated and soft, and as its quite thick, a little really does go a long way. The 7.5ml pot they sent me has lasted 2 weeks and I still have some left! I really don't want it to run out, so have already placed my order for the full sized version! 

The full sized version cost me around £64, but you can probably get it a bit cheaper if you shop around. This is a lot more than I would normally want to pay, but I really do think it's worth every penny! If the tiny pot lasts more than 2 weeks (I will probably get just over 3 weeks out of it) then I think it is worth the money. 

I am so happy I got to try these products out, and they were just as good as I expected!  

Thank you for reading, and as always all comments appreciated! 

Love to you all x
