MURAD Time Release Acne Cleanser ($32/6.75oz @ murad.com and sephora.com) – yup I’ve been struggling with hormonal acne for the last year or so and have not found anything to control it until this cleanser. I’m not sure if it’s the .5% salicylic acid or the technology that allows this one to continue working after it’s been rinsed off. Either way, I don’t care! It works for my skin and that’s the bottom line.
And this is the only product I’ve been using on my face and neck – no toner or face cream, just this.
The cleanser itself is pretty thick and there really isn’t any kind of foaming action, so don’t look for that in this one. My skin has been on this for almost 2 weeks and I saw a difference in the way my skin looked and felt in just a few days, which doesn’t happen often. Thank you Murad!
MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation ($43/12.5g @ sephora.com in September) – a big release for the brand with this and the Ultra HD Liquid Foundation ($43/1oz @ sephora.com out now). I assumed a stick would be too heavy for this time of year but thankfully it’s not and wow, did this give me an amazingly natural finish that lasted all day.
The technology behind this is called the 4K Complex – Amino Acid Coated Pigments (those reflected particles that blur imperfections), Hyaluronic Spheres (to hydrate and plump skin), and Sericite (a fine grained mica that adds light reflecting properties).
I love that the foundation category seems to always be introducing new technology and this is one that’s winning with it.
Have you tried the Liquid one yet?
