Review: Murad Rapid Collagen Infusion.

A very quick acting formula I was able to see results from Murad Rapid Collagen Infusion the first day I used it. Within a  few  hours of application my skin appeared softer and more supple the most noticeable results around my eyes. Any little lines are plumped up and barely visible it has also visibly brightened my skin. Excellent results and even with sensitive skin I have had no irritation issues. Another great Murad product that lives up to its claims!

Murad Rapid Collagen Infusion 
We’re losing about 1% of our collagen every year starting at age twenty – a staggering statistic! Collagen is one of the most important components in the human body, and is responsible for the strength, flexibility and elasticity of the skin, so the more collagen we lose, the more fine lines and wrinkles appear. Dr. Murad’s has once again proven himself a true innovator with his latest collagen-boosting treatment, Rapid Collagen Infusion.

Rapid Collagen Infusion is a youth building formula that infuses the skin with a unique botanical complex that encourages the skin’s own collagen production while helping maintain healthy hydration levels to plump skin and smooth fine lines and wrinkles, providing not only long term benefits, but also the instant gratification of an immediate plumping effect – it is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in just 2 hours!

How it works:

  • Collagen Support Complex boosts skin’s resilience and plumps dehydrated skin to reduce wrinkle depth appearance
  • Winged Kelp smoothes skin by fostering natural collagen and elastin
  • Cellular Hydro-Lock® with Apple and Lentil Seed Extracts plumps skin and helps smooth fine lines and wrinkles

Rapid Collagen Infusion also features Murad’s newest technology, RepleniCell®, a hydration technology that utilizes a proprietary blend of complex ingredients to pre-treat the water phase of most Murad formulations that helps skin with attracting water, binding water within the skin’s surface and strengthening skin’s barrier to help it retain water.

Rapid Collagen Infusion (1.0 FL. OZ., $78.00) is available on Murad.com, at Sephora, Ulta and leading salon and spa locations nationwide.

Quench Your Skin This Winter with Murad!

It’s no secret that winter is rough on your skin. It’s important (especially during the winter months) to look for products that include antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and hydrators to support and enhance the skin’s barrier function and protect cells from environmental damage and dehydration. And let’s not forget to use sunscreen in the colder months – the sun is just as harmful as in the summer!

Luckily, Murad has an army of super hydrating and protective topical solutions that will leave your skin quenched and hydrated during those harsh months that seem to never end:

 

I love this mask it goes on a little unassuming it resembles a regular face cream. Its easy to apply and there is absolutely zero irritation. The best part is how much firmer and refreshed my skin looks after using this. I use it on my face and neck and love how much firmer my skin has become.

Age-Diffusing Firming Mask is a rich, at-home skin firming booster that targets dull, dry, lackluster skin by delivering essential moisture. This formula enhances skin elasticity and promotes instant firming to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while helping to improve overall skin health.

Murad’s Hydro-Dynamic Moisture cream is pure decadence. My sensitive, combo skin can freak out in the winter with the cold,dry air it seems to have multiple personalities. I have been using this every night and I don’t have any problems with dryness and it doesn’t clog my skin. Finally an intense moisturizing product that doesn’t make me breakout and leaves my skin looking and feeling smoother and hydrated.

Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture is an uber-rich, skin-quenching formula that instantly relieves dry, dehydrated skin while locking in optimal moisture levels for 8 hours to restore youthful resilience and tone. Avocado, Sunflower and Olive Fruit Oils enhance skin’s ability to retain maximum levels of hydration.

This is on the spendy side but a tiny bit of product goes a long way. On top of protecting my skin from potential sun damage it leaves my face so soft and works as a great base before makeup. I love how great my skin feels after using Essential C.

Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30 PA +++ protects skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays while powerful antioxidants fortify skin to make it more resistant to free radical damage. Murad’s patented Skin Repair System helps reverse existing environmental damage while Vitamin C encourages collagen synthesis and improves clarity. Emollient conditioners leave skin healthy and hydrated.
