Beauty is only skin-deep, the saying goes, but the importance of skin truly goes a lot deeper. We all want beautiful, smooth, clear and glowing skin, but beauty regimes that work for others may not necessarily work for you. I received this package from the amazing team at Murad Canada and took these products out for a test drive. My absolute favourite was the Skin Smoothing Polish because I did see a reduction in size of my pores as well as the Soothing Skin and Lip Care balm because it didn’t leave a sticky residue on my lips but it kept them moisturized throughout the day.
There are thousands of different skincare products out there and sometimes it can get really frustrating to find what specifically works for you. When picking out skincare products you really need to just look for what your skin needs. Don’t experiment too much out side of what your skin actually needs because you can just end up damaging it. Also, keep your application sizes to a minimal amount. I find that if you put too much product on your skin, it does not absorb as well and hence the product becomes almost ineffective. Personally, I found that these Murad skincare products were very gentle but still effectively did what it was suppose to without stripping my skin dry of its natural oils. Lets take a closer look at the products:
