I received this extremely moisturizing cream, complementary in exchange for my honest review. I have been testing this cream, Murad Intense Recovery Cream, for a few weeks. This cream is part of their advanced hydration collection. As we are in the dead of winter, I could not have received this moisturizing powerhouse at a better time. Between the drying, indoor heating, and cold, skin-chapping wind, my skin was feeling parched. This cream is packed with botanical extracts, fruit oils and emollients. It has a very unique and silken texture. It is actually formulated more like a semi-solid, translucent gel-balm than a cream. Because this cream is so truly emollient, I apply it only around my eyes and nose in the morning. I use it on my full face and neck in the evening. After just a one or two days of use, you'll notice a increasein your skins hydration. After 3 solid weeks of use, I have found I can use it every 2nd day or so because it does it fabulous job. This works better for me due to my skin's propensity to become oily. The packaging is a typical round glass jar with screw-on lid. With our current health crisis, I would have liked to see an included spatula applicator. It has a faint scent that is only vaguely noticeable. I gave only 4 stars (would be 4.5 if allowed), because of the oiliness I feel on my skin the next morning after use. It isn't a big deal, as I wash my face each morning anyway. Overall, another fantastic product from Murad!
I received this to try for my honest review of the product. I was very excited to try the Murad Intense Recovery Cream because I have heard great things about the Murad brand. However, I was slightly disappointed in my results. The product is good but the hydration didn't blow me away or work any miracles. The cream is lightweight and does go on smoothly but it wasn't any better than my normal moisturizer for a way less price. Overall, does it work to moisturize? Yes, but not any better than my usual moisturizer. The results just don't justify the price in my opinion and I wouldn't purchase this product again.

It starts out thick in the jar but once you begin to rub it in, it turns into a silky fast absorbing cream. It really has helped improve my dry winter skin and I will continue to use it.

So I've been using this product for almost a month now and I am absolutely amazed!! Everything about this cream is amazing! The texture is perfect and a little goes a long way. It spreads so wonderfully all over my face and absorbs so well leaving my skin super soft and moisturized. My feels HEAVENLY!!! I had my doubts, at first, about results but I can honestly say this really does make my skin look bright, moisturized and less stressed!!! I use it after the Murad Recovery Serum(I believe that's what it's called, they go together). I HIGHLY recommend this cream!! 100%!!

I incorporated the Murad Hydration Intense Recovery Cream into my daily routine for a couple of weeks to properly test the cream. The packaging was nice and had a very luxury quality feel to it. I have extremely dry skin year around so I found it beneficial for my dry skin. I noticed a boost in hydration for my skin while using the cream. I also have hypersensitive skin and can easily have an adverse reaction to a product. I'm happy to report no negative reactions to the product. It's a great product and would be fantastic for someone with a dry skin type. The price point though is a little bit high for me and my budget.

I loved this cream so much! It really made my skin feel hydrated. The texture was a bit thick, but it speaks nicely and absorbed quickly!
Wmc42089 from West Virginia
I absolutely loved the way the cream pealed away layers of dead dry skin. The results make me look 5 years younger.
Elle2021 from Minnesota
I have oily t-zone and I noticed that a little bit of cream goes a long way. The cream feels lightweight on the face and not leaving the face oily. I'm happy to add the Murad Intense Recovery Cream into my skin routine especially in the winter season when my face gets dry during this season. I'd buy this product and I would recommend this product to friends and family.

A thick green cream that felt reminiscent of old school beauty creams you seem being applied in old movies. I apply it after the serum a few nights a week and I have noticed a cut down on the dry scaly patches on my face from winter weather.
Nelle from Nyc
Wow this has been suoer hydrating for my newly problematic skin since covid. Here in NYC things have been intense as has been my skin unfortunately. Dry, dull, cracked, almost chafed. The balm like consistency feels so refreshing going on. It has a nice clean subtle, scent minus reaction for those who have senstive skin. I had oily skin now it is more combination. This helps the dry areas without over hydrating the oily areas. Great balance I highly recommend.

I love this cream! The smell is nice and fresh and it feels so great going on the skin. It is very hydrating without leaving any weird oily residue!
Mel from NJ
I reallly love this! It really helped to moisturize my skin without leaving me too oily! I have oily skin and was worried this would make me break out but it didn't! I felt the difference in my skin and also saw how plump and awake my skin looks now!

Tay from Towson
This recovery cream was the perfect solution that my skin needed this winter. It really helped the elasticities in my skin not feel so dry and tight after showers. I didn't notice any scent. I have very oily skin and it don't make my skin greasy nor did it break me out. I think my skin looks much more hydrated and ample then before I used this product.
Taylord18 from Georgia
I know I say that about a lot of skincare but I mean it with this cream. It's so thick and luxurious and my face is so hydrated after using it. It does leave an oily film but if you give it time to soak in its perfect! I prefer my moisturizers to be like this. There is no smell, it's so creamy and I'm in love!
Denden from Michigan
I was apprehensive because of the price, BUT, this is hands down the best moisturizer I've ever used! I'm a product junkie so there have been a lot! Less than a week and my skin looks like I've gotten "something done". Also it's for your face and eyes so you don't have to buy eye cream. Another added bonus is a little goes along way. Just know when you first put it on you need to let it dry/absorb before you start your primer or makeup. It can feel a tiny bit "greasy" but I promise that's a good thing. Especially during winter months or if you have dry skin. This moisturizer works over time. Using morning and night and as an eye cream really softens the blow of the price tag. Shocked at the results in such a short amount of time. Also I'm 38 with a lot of occasional breakouts and sensitive/combo skin, and I've had zero acne since using this. Not sure how or why but it's just amazing.

The Murad Intense Recovery Cream is exactly as it's named! This cream is intensely moisturizing and has recovered my skin barrier. It applies well and is easily absorbed by my skin. It retains the moisture leaving my skin feel hydrated and smooth. My only dislike is the packaging.
JennyCakes from Michigan
I ended up loving this product. At first I thought it seemed a bit greasy but it absorbs very well and really hydrates your skin nicely. It's a thick cream which I love and It's nice and cool as it goes on and has a light scent. Not over powering. This left my skin so soft and Hydrated. I would definitely recommend.
Mimwieds from New York
I have been using the Murad Intense Recovery Cream as a night cream for the past month, and my skin has been loving it! I have combo skin, so it can get pretty dry during the winter. I normally have to layer an oil or sleeping mask on top of my regular moisturizers at night, but the Intense Recovery Cream has been keeping me hydrated all night long without any layering! Its a pretty thick cream, but a little goes a very long way so use it sparingly. I have been a huge Murad fan for many years, so I'm not surprised that I enjoyed this cream. I 100% recommend it to anyone looking for intense hydration this winter!
TemporaryWaffle from USA
I have tried several different facial creams and so far, this has been my absolute favorite cream yet!! It's so smooth and soft, with a great scent, and leaves my face feeling really moisturized. It seems to smooth out my skin better than other products have, as well. I look forward to using it each morning and night...I think it's going to be my go-to face moisturizer!
MirrorM from Dallas, Texas
Having very dry skin I need all the help I can get. This recovery cream has helped tremendously to moisturize and help heal my skin. Feel light upon application and sinks into skin well enough. The ingredients are pretty good. While I need additional help from other products this cream has helped bring back my skins health.
Kayla Leanne from Louisville, KY
I love it! Clean smelling, gentle on your face, and keeps your face soft without feeling greasy!
Amanda W. from Milton, WA
Up until I turned 40 I didn't really have any issues with my skin being dry. Hit the big 4-0 and bam... dry skin. The Murad Intense Recovery Cream is a game changer! It is moisturizing but not too thick, which is a plus for me because I hate the feeling of thick creams that don't soak in. It moisturizes but doesn't leave my skin "oily looking". This has left my skin feeling so soft, smooth, my complexion is evening out too! I love the smell too! It's a light scent that makes me feel "girly". I think I've just added a new "everyday" product to my skincare routine!
Cheetahfam from Atmore, Alabama
This is probably the best cream I've ever used! First, it's so luxurious- smooth, and melts into your skin with no residue, just beautiful, glowing skin! Not at all sticky or greasy. I don't even bother with primer after this. It's that good. Not only that, but it's for face and eyes in one product. No need to purchase a second product for your eye cream! A tiny, tiny bit is all you need, even with the driest skin, like mine. Definitely a very high-end luxury cream! Do yourself a favor, and spoil yourself with this!
