Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars
I've been using this for about 3 weeks now . It gives the skin an instant boost of hydration and radiance, as the serum has some reflective properties in it, not glitter by any means but a soft almost opalescence. It has an interesting smell, not an easy scent to describe, not floral either. I think the scent is from the niaminicide, it seems almost like the smell of indoor tanning lotion (minus the coconut/sunscreen smell). I mostly use this serum during the day, layered under my moisturizer and makeup. I think it's important to note that you should allow your skincare to absorb into the skin for at least 5-10 minutes before applying your makeup to avoid pilling (product buildup on surface of the skin). A little goes a long way with this serum, one pump is plenty of your face and neck.
The packaging is a very nice, heavily weighted glass bottle. The serum appears to have suspended spheres but if you look closely, the actual serum is sitting in an inner tube within the packaging, behind the spheres. For this reason, I deducted a star, it's misleading to the consumer in my opinion and seems like a marketing scheme. It makes you think you are getting more product than you really are too.
One other downfall to this product is the price. For what this serum does, I do not think it is worth the price tag. It's mostly just hydrating to me and does not contain any anti-aging ingredients. It seems like a basic serum to me. Still of better quality and results than other serums that I have tried in the past boasting to be hydrating, so I kept the 4th star. Personally, I just would not spend the money on this.
While I love this product in theory, it was nothing special for me. I prefer other eye creams but it is nice that this can be a replacement when needed. My super sensitive skin also had no negative reactions to this product - even if a pimple was forming, this cream seemed to zap it away within a day or two. It also left a healthy no-oily glow, so it's great if you're looking to brighten your skin. However, it didn't seem to lessen any of my forming wrinkles. In summary, this is a good product but for me not worth the price. It might be developed for older skin (I'm 31), which might have better results than I did. I think other Murad products would be bett r for me, but I got this one complimentary to test out.

I have noticed a difference since beginning to use it. Noticed the improvement in moisture in my skin. I would recommend!

I used this serum daily until I panned it. To be clear, I do not have sensitive skin. This product didn't feel light to apply and I got a patch of dry skin above my Cupid's bow because of this product. At first I thought it was the weather then when the patch didn't go away, I blamed my lipstick (which I threw away). The issue is wouldn't clear then a few days after I panned the product, it began to clear up and hasn't come back. You also don't get all of the product because 1/4 of the product are those useless bead things to make it look more official. I didn't notice an improvement of texture or tone. I don't recommend this to anyone.

Easy to use. Not greasy. More importantly, doesn't seem to bother my breathing.

I love Murad! This product seemed like a great idea in theory. However, the serum is very sticky and doesn't sink into my skin that quickly. If I don't wait long enough between applying it and my next product, everything pills like crazy! I can't say for sure if I saw any improvements specific to this item, but since switching to Murad a couple of years ago, my skin does look better. I won't repurchase but will use other serums by this brand.

I was sad I didn't like this more. Didn't love it, didn't hate it. I didn't feel like it really did anything for me *insert shoulder shrug here*

I bought this product based on the product recommendations from doing the skin analysis in the Ulta app. I wanted to try something that wasn't tested on animals so when my tries and true staple of Peter Thomas Roth 21 Peptide Serum ran out I thought I would give this a try. Let me be clear, I do not have sensitive skin, rather a very normal skin type. I read tons of reviews and heard about the burning. I did not experience this at all. However, what I did experience within two days of using it was it totally dried my skin out. I really wanted to like this product so I kept using it day and night as directed. The dryness only got worse and it made my skin start to redden. I stopped using it after only one week and took it back to Ulta and bought my tried and true Peter Thomas Roth 21 Peptide Serum. I read those reviews before, too, and the only comments I agree with is that the container is hard to get all the product out and that you don't get that much for the money spent. BUT, that is worth it for the results!
mandii from new orleans
works just okay for me. this product does not layer well and feels tacky. I cannot use in my morning routine and have other products I prefer in my nighttime routine. Will not purchase again.
Skye from Oklahoma
I am in love! I bought the entire skin care regimen and I get compliments on how healthy my complexion is daily. Upfront the cost is a bit shocking but it all takes very little of the product for each use and it lasts. I don't find this greasy and again a little goes a long way. I highly recommend adding this product to your daily skin care regimen.

I got this to wear under the Intense Recovery Cream. It's helped repair my skin after the overly drying meds my dr gave me for hyperpigmentation. It helps keep away the maskne as well... my skin looks awesome
Hailey from Lees summit MO
This is a must in your skin care routine so worth the money!

Troubbles from Peoria AZ
I use this product at night because I feel that I would get more results. I love it I wake feeling refreshed.
Autumn from Michigan
This product works wonders!!! I feel better just applying it and I swear my skin can't get enough!! I feel more youthful and my skin seems more hydrated, even toned, and soft!!!
Sam from Florida
I really do like this serum. Wishing I'd bought 2 while it was on sale. It feels nice-smooth and hydrating and does make my skin look brighter without irritating my mature, sensitive skin. Using it with the hydrodynamic moisture cream.
PJ from Iowa
I bought this during a sale and really love it! It feels wonderful on the skin and is so aesthetically pleasing as well as far as send and packaging!
Tracy the tired teacher from Galesburg, MI
I use this both in the morning and at night. It hardly takes any and the coverage is awesome. My skin looks and feels so much better.
J from KC Mo
I really like this moisturizer
TexasAmy from Texas
First of all the packaging is beautiful. It looks great on my counter. Most importantly, Murad always delivers innovative and effective products. This lightweight serum applies smoothly and has a light, pleasant smell. My skin feels soft and supple after using, and I see a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. Thank you, Murad!
Cici from Minneapolis MN
I imagined it being more of a silky vs a sticky serum. But overall it does what it is supposed to...Just started getting into eye creams and I've definitely noticed a difference. Very hydrating
Roachie from Ohio
It's so hydrating, it really pairs well with the water gel moisturizer. I plan on adding this to my routine forever, such a great product!
Shannonagons from Seattle
I've repurchased this serum 3x so far and will probably use it for the rest of my life! Its so hydrating and calms down my itchy skin after I hug my cat.
Kristy from California
I got this serum and I was really excited to try it. Being a mom of a lot of children, I tend to have dark circles and appear more tired than I actually am. The serum works well and I'm really excited that I was able to try it. I'm excited to share it with some of my friends. There is no residue or weird smell to it. I enjoy this product
