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.
