I first became interested in Murads AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser a while ago after searching on the net for products to help tackle my milia which I have on my cheeks, just at the top of my cheekbones. I don't have it bad and its not obvious once make up is applied but nevertheless its there and I know its there and Im not happy with it. My Skin is also prone to small breakouts around my chin area, mainly hormonal or stress related. I also find my skin is very dull looking. I wanted a non drying exfoliator that is gentle but also powerful at the same time.
I read a hell lot of positive reviews on the product and decided it was something I wanted to try. All the reviews I read have been nothing but glowing and many women have experienced a great difference in their skin.
The product aims to smooth texture while cleansing impurities with a trio of gentle exfoliating acids. Salicylic, Lactic and Glycolic Acids provide clarity, brightness and improve cell-turnover by dissolving dead skin cell buildup. Jojoba beads further polish and smooth skin
I have now been using the product for around 2 weeks and can honestly say this is one amazing product. From the very first time I used it I noticed instant results, which is something that is rare. No other exfoliator has resulted in my skin looking so clean, healthy and polished after one use. I was surprised at how gentle this product is. The beads are very small and to be honest I hardly feel them on my skin. Unlike some exfoliators I have used in the past which have been harsh and scratchy on my skin. Although the beads are small they are super concentrated and remove every inch of dead skin and unclog pores. The directions for use are 3 times weekly, but after seeing the results after my first use, I wanted to use the product more often, so on my second week of using it I started to use it every other day after cleansing. For me this works perfectly as its so gentle to use. It doesn't strip my skin and leave it feeling tight and dry, it leaves it baby soft and literally glowing. The overall appearance of my skin has improved greatly. My milia spots are hardly visible now, my pores appear a lot smaller and the overall condition of my skin just looks healthy. It literally does polishes away the dullness of my skin to reveal much softer, clearer and healthy looking skin. So much so that even Gareth has noticed the difference.
Although this product is price (£26.95 ) I think its totally worth it and can only imagine other exfoliators feeling harsh on my skin after using this and never being able to give me such positive results.
Would I recommend? - Without a doubt!
Available direct from the Murad website priced at £26.95.
