I travel constantly via airlines (very dry air) and often end up in dry locations. Add to that my skin is prone to dryness but also gets oily... most likely it's response to being dry. I also have adult acne. So finding a moisturizer that doesn't trigger acne breakouts and keeps oil down has been a needle in a hay stack.
This moisturizer WORKS. I love it. I've tried a lot of other brands and have never had good results. It's not greasy, absorbs quickly, lasts all day, and goes on very well under makeup. I even saw a reduction in frequency/severity of acne break outs after using this. I can put on foundation or powder over this moisturizer without any greasy or damp feeling. So my makeup wears well and stays longer. I've also noticed that my skin doesn't get as oily since I started using this moisturizer.
I'm in my mid 40s, and I really, really loved this face cream. It was the first time I'd ever splurged on a moisturizer, and the first time I had used one with a retinoid (retinyl palmitate) in it, and my skin was looking so much better. No breakouts, skin tone more even, smoothed texture...it was fantastic.
But...I started using it in early June 2017. In late July, I ended up in my optometrist's office with corneal keratitis and dry eye syndrome. I don't wear contacts, and my job demands (involving looking at a computer screen for much of the day) had remained the same. The only thing that had changed was my moisturizer. I did some digging, and there is published evidence that topical retinoids in cosmetics may contribute to dry eyes in some people, as they can interfere with meibomian gland function (necessary for proper tear film in your eyes). I wasn't using this product near my eyes, but it still apparently had an effect. I reluctantly stopped using it, and have combed through my makeup bag and ditched anything with retinyl palmitate (or similar) in it, and my eyes are recovering.
Murad, your product is fantastic, but not for everyone. I am sad to have to throw it out because it works so well (not to mention it cost a bomb), but my eyes can't deal with it on my face.

Love this product and continue to buy it.

I love this product! My skin is very dry and after using this every day I can see a great improvement in my skin.
Leigh from NC
This product feels like a whip cream and has no weight after applied. It took away the dry spots and left my skin feeling and looking amazing. My new go to cream for nightly use. Works great after applying retinol too.
Carol from Los Angeles
OMG... I love this! I noticed my skin started looking a lot better within a couple of days! Wish I would have bought this sooner. This is now my forever go to moisturizer.
Jen from Hollister
Started using every morning and I can see a difference in the smoothness and tightness of my face and neck.
JJ from WI
I used to use a normal drugstore, popular moisturizer because I thought it worked great. Kept my skin hydrated (or so I thought). I had received this as a sample and from the very first day, I can't even fully explain the difference. It was night and day. My skin was felt so refreshed and smooth and the pores just vanished! I use half of the amount of moisturizer that I had to with the other product. Once the trial was done, I went and purchased the full product.

I used this mostly at night but this could definitely still be used for daytime as well. Skin felt super hydrated afterward but not greasy. This is light with no scent. My skin definitely felt smooth and plump. Didn't irritate or break me out. All positives, but not sure it warrants the price-point. Would pick the one by SkinFix instead of this for $15 less!

I have acne-prone skin, and I'm always having to restart my acne regimen when it starts to get bad again. This is the ONLY moisturizer I have found that doesn't make my acne worse, but also hydrates my extremely dry skin. The price is high, but a jar lasts about 2-3 months for me with an everyday use. I also love that it's non-greasy so I am able to apply makeup over the top of it. I think this stuff is well worth the money.

I have combination skin and this works very well on my dry cheeks, especially from wearing a mask all the time. One night I put it all over my face and woke up with a couple new pimples and oilier-than-usual t-zone. It seems to be a very nice, medium weight formula, but I use it as a dry spot treatment rather than an all over moisturizer. If I could use this all over my face, I would rate this 5 stars.

Expensive but soo worth the price! Doesn't have a tacky feeling and keeps me moisturized!

Morning and Night----Doesn't break out my face---YEA!!
MOMX4 from Boston, MA
It looks and feels like a quality moisturizer, it just doesn't agree with my skin. My skin feels ok when I put it on, but within a couple days I have breakouts. I've given it a few tries and I know it's the moisturizer, because it only happens when I start using it again. Strangely enough, the eye cream works great for me.
Beth from Virginia
My husband accidentally bought this one instead of the nutrient charged water gel so I figured I'd give it a try. It sat on top of my skin, made my skin feel uncomfortably tight and it started burning immediately. Definitely going to return and never use again

This stuff was a little pricey for me but when I bought it the first time it was featured on the 21 days of beauty for 50% off. I was hooked immediately. I used to have very definitive forehead wrinkles and this stuff smoothed them out. I absolutely love Murad products they live up to their price point every time. I have combo skin and this works for my dry patches and oily T zone. I use this at night before bed so I can use my SPF in the morning. This is a must have to change up any skin care routine. It even helped with my acne.

This is my go to for daytime moisturizer. It hydrates without adding shine and wears well under makeup.
KP from Michigan
This the most money I've ever spent on a skincare product and I am so disappointed. Minutes after putting it on my face feels tight and I now have flaky dry patches on my cheeks. I would not buy this product again.
Jane from Charlotte, NC
I love the product but am concerned about it's freshness. I was sent two by Ulta and both were of the older packaging. While I am sure there is a recommended shelf life I could not find an expectation date on the packaging. This will make me hesitant to order products on-line from Ulta in the future.
Lexie from Texas
This is a great moisturizer for very dry skin.
Lauren from St. Augustine, FL
I bought this to use as a night moisturizer, but I love it more than the day one I was using so I am now using this for both day and night. Does not leave my skin greasy, even in the morning.
Aly from California
I received this face cream in a Murad sample box from Ulta. I was skeptical it would work for me because I break out very easily when using any facial products like creams, oils,serums, etc. I have combo/oily, thick-textured skin with large pores so it's surprising my skin is so sensitive to various products. I could see the difference with this cream after about a week of use. It brightened my skin's appearance, made the texture seem finer/smoother and minimized my pores. I will have to save my money to buy the full-size jar when my sample runs out!
Brianna from NC
I personally like to wear a moisturizer that makes my face feel nice and hydrated. Unfortunately this wasn't the one for my liking.
Payton from California
Randomly decided to try this moisturizer after running out of my old one and I fell in love with this one! It has a nice thick creamy texture that is not greasy at all and moisturizes my skin perfectly. Has kept my skin clear and not irritated. My only downside is that I feel like I am going through the product a little quickly especially considering the price I just feel like you kind of have to use a good amount each time. However I'd still say it's worth and would 100% repurchase!
D from frankfort, KY
Since its winter time and my skin is a bit on the drier side, I really enjoyed using this product. It is a bit heavy so I do not use it right before putting my makeup on because I feel like it causes my foundation to break apart.
