Updated Skincare Routine Ft Murad Skincare Products

I never had acne as a teen nor in my 20s but fast forward to a month ago when I tried a new "stem cell" restoration product here in Jamaica and my skin went crazy! I'm talking huge, painful bumps on my forehead, whiteheads, large pores, blackheads on even scarring! I felt like my skin somehow went into shock and then went into defense mode to fight off an ingredient of that product that it didn't like.

I stopped taking that product at the first sight of the breakout and has since been on Murad thanks to the kind folks at Murad and Collectively. 

Below are 3 of the products I was sent and my thoughts on them. They are a 3 step skincare combo that works together to improve your skin.


This is my favorite product from the trio and is the one I've been reaching for the most! The packaging features a deep purple bottle with a pump in a simple yet sleek design.

Based on the information on the product. It is a gel-to-oil makeup removing cleanser that nourishes with prebiotics to balance skin's microbiome for healthier looking skin. It is a 4-in-1, non-drying formula that features an ultra cleansing peptide to melt makeup, dirt and excess oil, while moisturizing emollients and deeply hydrates.


- Removes face, eye, and lip makeup
- Removes dirt and excess oil
- Replenishes with prebiotics
- Deeply hydrates


- Pricey $36

I personally like that it only takes 2 pumps to remove all my make-up and clean my face without it having that "dry squeaky clean" feel. The product leaves my skin with a smooth, buttery velvet feel and I can feel the difference it makes on my pores! My pores are a lot cleaner and after a using this product for 2 weeks consistently, my breakouts have stopped. I would recommend this product to everyone and I recommend using as directed for best results. 


I must admit when I saw the word "peel" I thought it was one of those products that would strip my skin and I would have to stay away from putting products on my face for a while but that is not how it works! It's an oil based product that is used after cleansing the skin to make skin appear brighter, more even toned, healthier looking and radiant

While I don't have dark under eye circles or dull skin I do have those little dark shadows I get from my glasses and since using this product, they are gradually fading! The product promises that after 7 days I should see major changes, so I will go until that point and insert a before and after photo back into this post. Again, to get the best results, I recommend using as directed and follow through with a moisturizer or hydrating spray to lock everything in!


In 7 days:
  • Accelerates cell renewal by 33%
In 4 weeks:
  • 96% saw smoother texture
  • 88% saw more radiant skin
  • 84% noticed brighter skin and more even tone
  • 84% noticed healthier-looking, more nourished skin


- Pricey $65


This is my least favorite product of the 3 as I've not seen it work for me (just yet) and I need to give it more time to give a full review. It's supposed to have multiple uses and can be used as both primer and setting spray and an overall mist to give skin that boost of hydration. I've tried it as a make-up setting spray and it somehow dispersed the make-up giving it a weird look of when make-up is not properly blended. It's great as a hydration spray after all skincare products have been used to lock everything in and it works great in that regard.

This is a peptide-rich, hydrating mist that replenishes with prebiotics to balance skin's microbiome for healthier- looking skin. This 3-in-1 formula features hydrating sugars to moisturize and refresh skin, while a yeast peptide helps lock in hydration. A multi-tasking biopolymer complex primes and sets makeup.


- Replenishes with prebiotics
- Deeply hydrates
- Primes and sets makeup
- Beautiful Packaging


- Not great as a makeup primer or setting spray
- Pricey $32

If you are looking for skincare products that work for all skin types and have been researched for years and features a combination of science + dermatology, I highly recommend Murad Skincare Products.
