Sick of dry skin? Tired of struggling with dark spots and hyper pigmentation? Then you need to check out the Murad Essential-C line! Ever since I’ve won the Essential-C Environmental Shield Healthy Skin Regimen in a giveaway my skin has never looked better. Slowly but surely, I’ve eased product after product into my routine and they’ve become some of my go to skincare products for a healthy glowing complexion.
The latest product to join my holy grail list is the Essential-C Day Moisture cream. It’s a lightweight moisturizer that’s formulated with Vitamins A, C and E to protect revitalize environmentally stressed skin while offering protection from free radical damage and improving skin’s radiance, firmness and elasticity. I know you’re probably thinking to yourself, “Is my skin environmentally stressed?” That was my first thought when I did a little research on the Essential-C Day Moisture. Initially, my response was no but the more I used the Murad Essential-C line I realized just how much damage the environment was doing to my seemingly clear skin.
I’ve never struggled much with acne or blemishes but, like most WOC, my skin is naturally uneven with slight hyper-pigmentation around my mouth, along the perimeter of my face and a little darkness under my eyes. Granted, I’ve also introduced serums, eye creams and toner into my routine but I still think the Murad Essential-C line is responsible for the dramatic difference in my hyper-pigmentation. I’ve been using the Essential-C Day Moisture everyday for the last couple months and my skin has never looked more clear and radiant.
The Essential-C Day Moisture has an incredibly lightweight texture that’s thin and watery yet still moisturizing enough to hydrate my dry skin–even in the winter months. The Broad Spectrum SPF 30 PA ++++ helps block out free radical damage and protects my skin from accumulating bbfurther sun damage but it can also make my face look a little greasy afterwards so I tend to use a tiny amount as a little goes a long way. Minus the slight greasiness, the Essential-C Moisture is the ideal moisturizer for all skin types struggling with hyper-pigmentation and environmental damage. I’ve always been curious to try Murad products but now I’m completely hooked on them–especially the Essential-C line. I have no idea how I’ve ever lived life without the Murad Essential-C Day Moisture! I highly recommend checking out the Murad Essential-C Day Moisture at your local Ulta or Sephora if you’ve been struggling with dark spots and hyper-pigmentation. It’s well worth the money!
