Murad - 90-Day Rapid Lightening Skincare Regimen

Recently I was sent the Murad 90-Day Rapid Lightening Skincare Regimen (#liveSpotless) by BeautyStat. As most of you know, I don’t venture out on my skincare routine very often, but I’ve always been curious about the Murad product line. My only experience with Murad is from a facial at Massage Envy, but since it was my first time, they were hesitant to use anything but the Sensitive Skincare Line for my facial.

Murad Rapid Lightening Regimen 90 day Kit is suggested for people looking to:
• Treat skin spots and discoloration
• Prevent future damage
• Obtain youthful glow and even skin tone

Murad - 90-Day Rapid Lightening Skincare Regimen

This skin lightening kit is a full 90-day supply to treat skin discoloration from the 4 major causes of hyperpigmentation: sun, genetics, hormones, and inflammation. Each product in this kit treats hyperpigmentation at the source so you can start seeing brighter-looking, more even skin tone in as little as 7 days. Included in this kit are the following products:

Essential-C Cleanser
Patented antioxidant-rich cleanser using Vitamins A, C and E neutralize and rehydrate environmentally damaged skin by removing impurities and awakening the senses with a burst of citrus.

Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum
Fast-acting treatment featuring Hydroquinone fades dark spots, age spots, and freckles. Our skin-lightening serum also evens out skin tone to reveal a clearer, brighter complexion while helping prevent future pigment formation.

Essential-C Day Moisture (Broad Spectrum SPF 30 | PA+++)
This is a powerful, antioxidant-rich daily moisturizer that shields and revitalizes environmentally stressed skin. It’s made to protect your skin from UVA/UVB rays and free-radical damage, while improving skin’s radiance, firmness, and elasticity.

Advanced Active Radiance Serum
Fast-acting treatment featuring Resilient-C Complex rapidly boosts radiance and reverses visible signs of environmental damage. This powerful serum helps to improve brightness, clarity and radiance.

Intensive-C® Radiance Peel
Brighten, smooth and hydrate to see a radiant glow after just one treatment. Glycolic Acid exfoliates to accelerate turnover of dark damaged cells, removing dullness and improving skin texture. Myrtle Extract supports cellular renewal to boost youthful resilience and elasticity. Vitamin C and Indian Fig protect against free radical damage while enhancing skin clarity and luminosity.

Not sure if I’m bias to my current skincare routine or if I’m just a scaredy-cat to venture out but I couldn’t just dump my current routine and start with a brand new line, so I cautiously started by using each product individually in place or within my current routine. The first product I started with was the Essential-C Cleanser. It’s a very light and gentle cleanser and as expected with the orange packaging, it has a very citrusy scent. The formula has beads in it that break apart as soon as pressure is applied, meaning they are not meant for exfoliation.

As far as cleansing, I found that it left most of my eyeliner and streaked my mascara. I did a hand test to demonstrate. Excuse my boney, odd looking knuckles, but I applied Onomie Concealer (get a FREE shade starter kit here), Benefit They’re Real Mascara and Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner Crayon. As you can see the first wash, it took smushed around the concealer, lightly lifted the mascara and didn’t touch the eyeliner. Second go around, it look off most of the concealer and all of the mascara but still didn’t touch the eyeliner.

The first few days I used the cleanser, I had small pimples break out on my forehead, but it didn’t dry out my skin or cause any other irritations. For the price tag of $36, this cleanser will not be on my future purchasing list. I liked the scent but it doesn’t exfoliate or bubble up which I prefer both for my cleansers. Tough exfoliation beads are my favorite with lots of bubbles or lather.

The next product I tried was the Essential-C Day Moisture. It contains SPF so it has a greasy feel, but since my skin is so dry, it soaked up the majority of the moisture within fifteen minutes. There was still a slight slick feeling but I’d rather my skin be a bit oily than flakey and dry. I noticed a light citrus scent initially, but it quickly dissipated upon application. This will definitely be in my beach bag this summer.

The word “peel” always scares me. I’ve never had one of those chemical peels that turns your face into a tomato and then peels for a week, as I’m terrified of those and after having an allergic reaction to Noxzema, I’m very weary and overly cautious of skincare products. Hesitantly I applied the Intensive-C® Radiance Peel and I can now say the word peel should not be in the title of this product. Not only was it very gentle but it’s like a cream that washes off. It had a slight tingle but nothing like what I had anticipated. My skin has a radiance and glow the following day after using it. As with all the other products, it has a citrus scent as well.

The fourth product in the kit is the Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum. I just started using this about a week ago as I do have dark spots above my lip and an uneven skin tone on my forehead. I’ve read that it takes about two weeks to start to notice a change, but so far so good. It is a thin serum that dries quickly but does leave a bit of a sticky feel to the touch. I like to apply this at night and then use the Advanced Active Radiance Serum in the morning, which is another serum to brighten skin and give it a radiance boost.

Overall, I like the Murad skincare line. It’s a bit pricey but if used correctly can help solve many common skin alignments, such as dullness, acne, wrinkles, and aging.
