Murad Review


Murad products are created by Howard Murad, M.D. who is a certified dermatologist with a private practice based in El Segundo, CA. Dr. Murad is also a trained pharmacist and a Clinical Professor of Medicine at UCLA. The official website claims that Dr. Murad has helped over 50,000 people throughout the years and has treated every type of skin problem imaginable. It was during his time as a practicing dermatologist that he decided to create his own line of skincare products.

The official Murad website is very impressive and easy to navigate. Each product is described in detail and even offers customer reviews. There are tons of Murad products to choose from and they are separated into categories such as acne, sun protection, men’s shaving, body/cellulite, and three separate areas for aging. There are product lines for genetic aging, environmental aging, and hormonal aging; this is a different approach than most beauty companies.

Product Details

The Murad products have three categories of anti-aging products that we will take a look at. Murad claims it is just as important to take supplements as to apply topical creams and serums and the website will recommend what may be right for you.

The first aging category is genetic. The genetic aging area of the official Murad site will recommend you use the Age Reform Night Regimen as well as the Youth Builder Dietary Supplements. The Night Regimen contains a cleanser, treatment, and night cream. The supplements claim to fight aging from the inside and promote collagen production.

The second aging category is environmental. These products focus more on making your skin tone even while reducing wrinkles and age spots. The recommended regimen consists of the Environmental Shield Day Regimen and again the Youth Builder Dietary Supplements. The day regimen includes an Essential-C cleanser, renewal complex, and moisture SPF-15.

The last category is hormonal aging. The website claims that as women age, their production of estrogen declines and this effects skin texture, elasticity, and tone. The recommended regimen for this category consists of the Resurgence line by Murad. There is the Introductory Regimen (this is a TV offer) and a night regimen. They both contain various cleansing creams and serums.

The Good

  • Very thorough website with reviews posted alongside each product description.
  • When purchasing products from the official website, you get 3 free samples with each order.
  • 60 day money-back guarantee on all products.

The Bad

  • Some Murad products don’t list all of the ingredients. Instead they say “See product box”.
  • Some ingredients haven’t been proven effective as wrinkle fighters.
  • The recommended regimens can end up expensive. This might just be a way to sell more products.
  • Some products contain synthetic parabens which may irritate the skin.

The Bottom Line

You will be hard pressed to find a better website than Murad’s. The website goes into extreme detail for each product, provides testimonials and reviews, lists the ingredients for most products, and has great package deals available. We don’t like the recommended Murad regimens as they all seem to end up costing hundreds of dollars. The prices are a little high for products that don’t include a number of the best wrinkle reducers on the market today.

  1. Serverely burned the skin all around my eye. It has been over two weeks since I stopped using the product and still is very red and swollen.

  2. The cleanser and toner are the best but their “refund policy” is a joke. They will charge you for things you have ALREADY returned AND THEY HAVE RECEIVED!

  3. I love the resurgence products. It has improved my wrinkles ,it has tightened my skin on face n neck. It has been an all around great product ,I’m so happy with the whole series of them. My next to try is the rapid age spot and pigment lightning serum, I’m excited about this one because my whole face is a age spot and my doctor confirmed that…so hopefully this will help. Thank you mural this is a great product and I’m very pleased.

  4. Returned the intro kit with return authorization number. Have never received the refund of $ 251.00. This money back guarantee is a scam, just like the products. Always be suspicious of supposed rewsults like those touted.

  5. I have been using Murad Environmental Shield line since August 2013. I love this line so much! Within 2 weeks after using the Rapid Lightening 30-day kit I saw a diminish of dark spots on my face. My face was brighter than ever! I know a lot of people that use R&F, but I am a firm believer of Murad! I currently use the following Murad Environmental Products: Essential C Cleanser – love how well it cleanses my face and chest area, and smells like a fresh cut orange; Essential C Toner – tones and brightens your skin and smells amazing; Advanced Active Radiance Serum – keeps my skin radiant in the morning and evening, when I wake up in the morning my skin feels amazing; Rapid Age Spot & Pigment Lightening Serum – this is my go to product, just in 2 weeks I saw a huge difference in my skin; Instant Radiance Eye Cream – OMG, probably the best eye cream ever!; Essentail C Day Moisturizer – I apply this in the morning, around lunch time and about 4pm. My PM routine is the same, but after the Radiance Eye Cream, I apply the C Daily Renewal Complex + Age Balance Night Cream. 1x a week I use the Radiance Peel and every 3 weeks I go to Massage Envy (they carry Murad products) for a facial! My skin has never looked better! People think I use R&F, nope I use Murad! Firm Believer!
