Murad Skincare Review: Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture & Intensive Resurfacing Peel

You've probably have seen a few of my post sharing about skincare tips from Dr. Howard Murad. I was recently given the opportunity to try out a couple of their products. I received the Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture and the Intensive Resurfacing Peel. As summer is near and weather gets warmer, I need to keep my skin hydrated and maintain a youthful and healthy appearance.

Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture

This moisturizer cream is Über-rich, and contains a skin-quenching formula that instantly relieves dry, dehydrated skin while providing lasting moisturizer to restore youthful resilience and tone. I use it under my makeup in the morning. This moisturizer is a bit thicker than most moisturizers I use, but it's very creamy and smooth. It's also not greasy at all. There's no fragrance (just a light pleasant smell), which I prefer. I've been using the product (with small amounts) for a few days now and my skin didn't have any blemishes or break-outs. I have combination skin as well as sensitive skin. I did notice that my skin doesn't feel bumpy as it used to be.

Benefits & Features:
- Avocado, sunflower and olive fruit oils enhance skin's ability to retain maximum levels of hydration
- Retinyl Palmitate and Shea Butter improve texture & tone while restoring natural smoothness and softness
- Collagen Support Complex boosts skin's resilience, tones and plumps dehydrated skin
- Locks in optimal moisture levels for 8 hours
- Gentle enough for sensitive skin
- Leaves skin perfectly polished

Intensive Resurfacing Peel

This peel reveals younger looking skin by resurfacing superficial fine lines and wrinkles as well as brightening tone and smoothing texture. This product is perfect for removing dead skin cells. It combines the benefits of a peel with gentle microdermabrasion to smooth skin's surface and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. As I age, I am getting some wrinkles and lines already. I want to get rid of them and look younger, of course. You might find it a bit pricey, but you do get what you pay for: quality and optimal results.

Features & Benefits:
- Resurfaces to reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Brightens tone and smoothes texture
- Durian Cell Reform enhances the penetration of active ingredients
- Dried Plum Extract and Vitamin C brighten skin for a youthful glow
