Murad is one of my favourite skincare brands, so I was delighted to be able to have a skin consultation at their counter in Debenhams Glasgow, followed by a facial specific to my skin’s needs, in their relaxing treatment room.
The Murad skin consultation at the counter utilises some very intelligent skin camera technology to analyse the problems and concerns of your skin. I came out pretty good! I have no redness or inflammation issues, no wrinkles and very few fine lines, basically no visible open pores, and a little bit of pigmentation – from my freckles and from a small amount of underlying sun damage. This really helped me to focus on what my skin needs – I need to keep those wrinkles at bay and I need to make sure I always have SPF on, so that I get no further sun damage. The skin camera process also helped the team at the Murad counter to decide which of their facials to give me, and which of their products to recommend to me.
The facial that I got in their treatment room was the Murad Sun Undone facial. This antioxidant-rich treatment is formulated to restore clarity, texture, elasticity and firmness to the skin, whilst also fading pigmentation and smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. During this treatment, Dr. Murad’s patented infusion technology delivers pure Vitamin C directly into the skin for maximum results, and you should see a significant improvement after just one treatment.
First my skin was doubled-cleansed using the Murad Essential C Cleanser (£26) and my eye makeup was removed with the Murad Professional Gentle Eye Makeup Remover. The Murad Essential C Toner (£26) was then wiped over my skin with a cotton pad.
The Murad Age Reform Rapid Collagen Infusion For Lips (£25) balm was then applied to my lips to keep them soft, whilst the Murad Eye Lift Firming Treatment (£49.50) targeted my under-eyes, and the Murad Professional Vitamin C Infusion Mask treatment got to work on my face to give antioxidant protection, hydrate, brighten and reverses the appearance of skin aging caused by environmental damage.
My therapist then gave me a soothing shoulders, décolleté & facial massage, followed by the Murad Professional Soothing Cream Mask to calm and replenish my skin. Whilst this mask was working at pacifying my skin and reviving skin barrier function, I was treated to a relaxing scalp massage.
My facial ended with the application of the Murad Sensitive Skin Soothing Serum (£49.50), the Murad Essential C Eye Cream SPF 15 (£49.50) and the Murad Essential C Day Moisturiser SPF 30 (£59.50).
I loved the results of my facial – my skin looked so much brighter and it felt soft and hydrated. Vitamin C is definitely a winning skincare ingredient for me. I’m currently loving the Murad Intensive C Radiance Peel (£55) at home once per week – this peel is an intensive treatment to brighten the skin, reduce the signs of ageing and reverse the signs of environmental ageing. As well as Vitamin C, it also contains Glycolic Acid to exfoliate the skin and boost cell turnover, and Myrtle Extract to boost collagen production.
