Murad Intensive-C Radiance Peel Review

Intensive-C<sup>®</sup> Radiance Peel

This is my second time working with Murad, and they NEVER disappoint. Their products are top quality and ALWAYS do what they say.  The Intensive-C Radiance Peel ($49.50) is an amazing product. It doesn’t really harden and PEEL off of your skin. It’s more like a Radiance mask, that stays moisturized until you wash it off.

  • A convenient one-step, at-home peel which is part of Murad’s Environmental Shield® Line, created to help restore and renew sun and environmentally damaged skin, while protecting it from future damage.

To use: Massage evenly over clean face, neck and chest. You may experience a light tingly sensation. Leave on for up to 10 minutes. Rinse with warm wash cloth and pat dry. Use 1 to 2 times weekly and follow with a Murad step 3 moisturizer.

My Thoughts*

I decided to use this right before bedtime. So I used this with my regular cleanser, rinsed with warm water, and PATTED my face dry with a towel. You don’t want to SCRUB your face or use an exfoliator BEFORE using this. This can cause irritation and can cause your face to redden. Just use your natural cleanser first, and then apply this (wait for 10 minutes), rinse, and pat dry again.

This is the perfect “mask” if you ask me. As soon as you put it on, you can definitely tell that it has started working. It has a tingling sensation that lets you know that it is getting deep down into your skin to make it more beautiful.

This peel works after just one use (for me). I could definitely tell that hyperpigmentation (spotting) of my skin had definitely been reduced. This also restored clarity to my skin, so that you I didn’t experience any breakouts or  show any blackheads.

Skin immediately looked more youthful and extremely brighter. The ingredients in it smooth and perfect the skin to reveal my skin’s true beauty. My skin was glowing more radiantly after one use. Vitamin C and Indian fig protect skin from UV damage and free radicals, while helping the skin stay clear.

Glycolic Acid exfoliates the skin to accelerate the turnover of darkened, damaged cells. The damaged cells will then be gone and your skin’s dullness will be brightened and your overall skin texture will be better.

Myrtle extract helps to boost the elasticity in your skin as well as collagen to give your skin that youthful firmness and glow that you’ve been missing out on. As you get older your collagen and elasticity drop about 1% a year- starting at age 35. If you could save and store what collagen you have NOW, you might not have to fight such harsh wrinkles as you age.

My skin feels fresher, clearer, and brighter thanks to Murad Intensive-C Radiance Peel. You don’t have to use very much of this, or use it very often to see the results you’ve been waiting for. After one-two uses you can see a huge difference in your skin’s appearance.

Dry skin disappears along with those damaged cells. This peel turns those dry, damaged cells into new cells that are brighter and gives off such a healthy tone.

My blackheads are gone, which is a huge plus for me. I had tried so many different products over the years. I could never find anything to help with my HUGE nose pores and the blackheads stuck inside them. Not even makeup would cover it up!

I also haven’t had any breakouts since using this. It definitely gets that deep down dirt that clogs up facial pores and presents zits. My skin is very clear and looks extremely healthy.

My skin is more firm and definitely glows more. You can tell that this has some high quality ingredients in it. Although it is $50 a bottle, it is definitely worth it. It takes less than a dime sized drop to get the entire face and neck (if you wish) clean, clear, and under control.

The best thing about this peel is that no matter what skin you have (oily, dry, or combination) you can use this. This is also built for all skin colors, so whether your White, Asian, African American, or in-between.. this will help those dark spots, acne, and other problems you have.

The less you have to use, the longer it lasts. So a dime size drop once or twice a week, and you will probably end up having this bottle for more than 3 months.

Think about that. You could pass up on other acne treatments, masks, and collagen serums and replace it with this. Just ONE bottle of something that will help your skin possibly more than anything you currently have on your bathroom shelves at home.

I love that it does so many things in just 10 minutes and that I didn’t have to wait 2 months for some actual changes! It smells great and isn’t sticky or hard to get off. It doesn’t burn (just tingles) and leaves my skin SO soft and supple.

I am very impressed with this peel, and I will definitely add this to my skincare regimen. It has helped with breakouts, blackheads, dead and damaged cells, darkened skin, collagen and elasticity… What more could a woman ask for in a peel?

I give this peel a THUMBS UP. I have fallen in LOVE♥…

You can buy this from the Murad Skincare website @ $49.50.. Under Intensive-C Radiance Peel.
