Murad – Invisiblur Perfecting Shield

Murad – Invisiblur Perfecting Shield

At first I wasn’t sure what Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield* was – I assumed that as it has SPF30 it was some kind of moisturiser, or perhaps some kind of BB Cream. To be honest even after using it for over a week I’m still not sure how I’d describe it! Murad say it’s a ‘5 in 1 multi-benefit formula‘, I’d suggest it’s a moisturising priming treatment with sunscreen! Invisiblur Perfecting Shield was a gold winner of Best New Premium Skincare Product at the 2015 Pure Beauty Magazine Awards and has also been recommended by Woman & Home magazine. The product itself is a clear gel that’s super silky smooth. The long list of ingredients include lots of natural ones such as Barley, Sunflower and Cucumber Extracts, but there are also some not so natural looking ones too. The aim of Invisiblur is to soften and prime skin whilst blurring wrinkles and imperfections, plus with SPF 30 it protects skin from the harmful effects of the sun which is...

Murad – Clarifying Mask

Murad – Clarifying Mask

I have combination skin with a very oily chin that regularly experiences breakouts of spots and it would be great to find a product that could keep my skin under control. This Clarifying Mask from Murad is aimed at skin that has acne, and contains a unique combination of clays which draw out impurities and absorb excess oil, leaving skin looking smooth and shine-free. This is a thick, white clay-based mask which contains kaolin and bentonite clays – these draw out and absorb pore-clogging dirt and oil from the skin, whilst liquorice extract comforts, calms and soothes irritated skin, reducing redness and inflammation. The mask has a clean slightly clay-y menthol fragrance and the skin tingles when it is first applied. The mask should be used once a week and left on the skin for 10 minutes whilst it dries.
