Recently I have been on a skincare binge as in anti-ageing skincare obsession. Yes, no more makeup as I think my mind understood that I won”t be using much makeup in the next couple of months so bleh! what’s the point of it, right?
Murad is a dermatologist brand which was developed by Dr. Murad to help his patients resolve their skin conditions. Needless to say,this is a high end brand which I would not have purchased due to the very steep price but I finally had the chance to give this product a try when I got a sample of this product in my VanityTrove box.
I received a 5ml sample I do like the pump packaging as it is hygienic and allows me to control the amount of product dispense. The product itself is white and not too thick in texture Ingredient list: Rapid Collagen Infusion Water (Aqua), Isodecyl Neopentanoate, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Glycerin, Pentylene Glycol, Neopentyl Glycol Diethylhexanoate, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Stearic Acid, Cetearyl Olivate, Dimethicone/Bis-Isobutyl PPG-20 Crosspolymer, Sorbitan Olivate, Butylene Glycol, Honey (Mel), Urea, Yeast Amino Acids, Trehalose, Inositol, Taurine, Betaine, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Alaria Esculenta Extract, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, Codium Tomentosum Extract, Hydrogenated Olive Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil Unsaponifiables, Sodium Hyaluronate, Collagen Amino Acids, Citrullus Vulgaris (Watermelon) Fruit Extract, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Lens Esculenta (Lentil) Fruit Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate, Sodium PCA, Sodium Lactate, Zinc Gluconate, Ascorbic Acid, Chitosan, Propyl Gallate, Polysorbate 20, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Aminomethyl Propanol, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Chlorphenesin, Linalool, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Extract, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil From VanityTrove site: Murad’s Rapid Collagen Infusion is a fast acting, multi-tasking wrinkle fighting formula that promotes healthy collagen and hydration levels to plump skin and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. This advanced collagen-building formula is loaded with clinically proven ingredients to immediately reveal a more youthful appearance and feel. I have been using this product everyday ever since I received it only on my forehead to combat the existing fine lines from all the frowning that I have been doing all these years (the natural downside from being a worrier, sigh) and I must admit that after 2 weeks of consistent usage, I find my forehead is much smoother. I kid you not. The appearance of fine lines have faded and I can barely see any now. The cream absorbs very fast and I only need very little to cover my forehead. It does not leave any tackiness and I also did not detect any smell upon application. All in all, this cream really WOW’ed me and I am not easily impressed or so to speak. The downside of this product? The bloody steep price. It’s retailing MYR428.00 for 30ml. Holy cow indeed! But frankly speaking? For the first time I am seriously tempted to purchase a product despite it’s exorbitant price because it really worked wonders for me. Yes, this cream is that good for me and hey, I do enjoy a wrinkle free forehead.
