What are the best Murad skincare products?
Skincare is healthcare. That’s Dr Murad’s philosophy. His brand is all about bringing you actives that really work, so you can slow down premature aging, fight acne, and achieve all your skin goals.
Does it deliver? For the most part, yes. But, like every skincare brand, Murad has its duds. Just because it’s made by a doctor, doesn’t mean it’ll help your skin. *sighs*
So, what’s worth the splurge? I’ve rounded up the best Murad skincare products below:
Best Cleanser: Murad Prebiotic 4-In-1 MultiCleanser ($36.00)
I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of double cleansing. I want a cleanser that takes everything off in one go – without drying out my skin. Murad Prebiotic 4-In-1 MultiCleanser fits the bill. Murad says it has a gel-to-oil texture. Well, it doesn’t feel like an oil to me… but it certainly performs like a cleansing oil. It removes dirt, impurities and stubborn makeup while leaving skin softer and smoother. The best part? It’s suitable for all skin types.

Best Exfoliant: Murad Resurgence Replenishing Multi-Acid Peel ($65.00)
Confused by all the exfoliating acids out there? As a rule, AHAs, like glycolic and lactic, are for dry skin. They have hydrating properties that exfoliate skin without drying it out (unless you use them too often!). Salicylic and Malic acids are for oiler skin. They exfoliate both the surface of your skin and the pores, getting rid of blackheads, pimples, and dullness.
But what if you have combination skin or dry skin that gets the occasional pimple every now and then? Grab a bottle of Murad Resurgence Replenishing Multi-Acid Peel. It has all of these acids to exfoliate your skin – plus a lot of other goodies: tranexamic acid to lighten discolorations, hyaluronic acid to plump up skin, and antioxidants to fight premature wrinkles. Just keep the bottle away from sunlight (it degrades antioxidants!)

Best Sunscreen: Murad City Skin Age Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Mineral Sunscreen ($68.00)
Are you avoiding mineral sunscreens like the plague cos they always turn your skin into a greasy, white mess? Murad City Age Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Mineral Sunscreen will make you change your mind. It spreads easily on the skin without clogging pores or feeling too heavy on. Plus, it has a peachy tint that counteracts the white cast – and prevents the matte finish from making your skin look dull. The icing on the cake? It has its fair share of antioxidants to protect you from premature wrinkles, pollution, and blue light. It’s best suitable for combination or dry skin, but anyone can use it.

Best For AntiAging: Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Serum ($89.00)
Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Serum is gentle enough for sensitive skin. How is that possible? It uses micro encapsulation, a technology that delivers retinol into your skin over a period of several hours, instead than all at once. That minimises the dryness and irritation you can experience with other retinol products. But why should you use retinol in the first place? It boosts collagen, fights wrinkles, improves the texture of you skin and even helps you fight acne. Plus, it has ceramides, urea, and Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate skin and antioxidants to slow down premature aging. I could do without the fragrance (THAT could irritate sensitive skin), but hey, you can’t always have everything.

Best For Dry Skin: Murad Sensitive Skin Soothing Serum ($60.00)
Murad Sensitive Skin Soothing Serum is literally a waterfall of moisture from your skin. Urea and Hyaluronic Acid act like magnets that attract extra moisture into your skin and bind it there. Your skin then uses the extra moisture to become plumper, softer and brighter. Glycolipids patch up the skin’s protective barrier, so this moisture stays in instead than evaporating into thin air. Plus, the serum is packed with antioxidants and soothing ingredients to fight premature wrinkles and soothe irritations. And nope, there’s no fragrance this time. Phew!
