I've been searching for something to add in my routine for anti-aging and already use Murad cleanser so I decided to give this a shot. I have dry skin with texture and hormonal acne. It doesn't dry out my skin like I feared a product with retinol would. I put it on before bed and in the morning my face doesn't feel greasy or dry and looks radiant. It's not been enough time to notice any long-term affects but I will definitely keep using. You don't have to use much which helps with the price tag.
I am a huge Murad fan because of their brightening (orange) line which has completely transformed my skin. I jumped at the chance to try their retinol product but TBH after using up the whole bottle I don't really see a difference between this and other less expensive retinol brands (ex, Olay, La Roche-Posay). In fact I think The Ordinary brand is better. Plus it is annoying that Murad won't even disclose the % retinol in this product, saying that they only do so for "active ingredients". So if retinol isn't the "active ingredient" in this serum, what on earth are we buying it for?

I originally got the product through a subscription box, and fell in love! I'm 24 and I've been using it for about 6 months and noticed a big change. Less wrinkles around my eyes, forehead, and mouth. My acne has cleared up and my skin just looks nicer overall. My family and friends have commented and this is the only new product in my routine.

Buy the smaller 0.33 size first to try! They usually come in a trial pack or maybe even individually as a trial size. I apply retinol every other night, and this sized lasted me about 2 months. In that time, this is definitely something I would want to re-purchase! I didn't notice it right away, but one day I realized I hadn't gotten a break out or the occasional cystic pimple I tend to get 1-2 times a month. My skin looked more plump and so much more even in color AND texture! I am impressed.
I am still wanting to try other retinols as I have only tried the Lancome Visionnaire retinol night concentrate before this. I definitely felt like I saw better results with the Murad and, honestly, I really enjoy the scent of it. It is pricey, so I will likely wait for a coupon or till it goes on sale. But this is definitely something I am waiting to re-purchase!

I first started using this product when I turned 50. I always struggled with acne my whole life as well as combination skin. I actually bought it for the crows feet started around my eyes. Upon continued use, I found it has helped with the fine lines around my eyes and ALL my acne disappeared and has not come back. My skin looks better than when I was in my 30's! I use it every other night before I go to bed and follow up with a moisturizer. I have had no adverse reactions to it either. Because it is pricey (for me) that's why I use it every other night.

I use the Night Cream, & that stuff is what got me hooked - this is a great supplement to the Night cream being used during the day. Highly recommend - it has helped eliminate my crows feet, smile lines & seriously seriously my dark circles under my eyes are almost gone. Moisturize afterwards - it helps hasten the results.

Why is this stuff shimmery? Who wants to glitter their wrinkles? That just draws attention to them.
Used for a few months and saw no change in my skin. I have one fine line and it did not lessen the line at all. Just glittered it.

I got a trial size in a subscription box, but didn't try it for months. Once it tried it I was blown away. In a couple days my smile lines were almost nonexistent. Not to mention it smells incredible and doesn't give breakouts. Now the only problem is spending the $90 on more. But it's so so worth the price!
Annie from Oregon
Was so excited to use this and used 1st night. Next day bumps all over my face 😩 I am older but skin is very smooth and no breakouts so was very unhappy
Disappointed from California
I've been using this for about three weeks and I don't see any changes on my wrinkle. The only thing I noticed was that I started to breakout😡😡😡and I never breakout! I expected this to be effective since it's quite pricey but it's horrible! It made my skin dry and breakout! The worst!!!😡😡 not worth the money! No changes and causes breakouts and dry skin.

I really like this product. It clears my acne.. I use it every night before bed time.
Yemily from Cali
Smells AMAZING! Doesn't leave skin feeling tight and sticky, my dry skin absorbed it instantly and I have seen a brighter complexion. I have a tiny sample size but will probably buy the full size once I finish my bottle.

I use this every am and pm

I need to bring this back to Ulta asap. The dispenser is horrible. Have used 2 times. It has taken me multiple pumps to get this to even work enough for 1 application. I don't have my receipt but I ordered online. It is going back!!!
Sarah from San Antonio
I can't use this product every day because it causes me to break out in small little red pimples. I've used it for several months and haven't really noticed much difference. Think I'll try a different brand.
Maya from San Antonio
This serum made my face feel good.

Retinol is seriously a must-have, especially if you are in your late 20's like me. Retinol helps improve your skin's turnover, which can help with acne, help remove pigmentation AND help reduce wrinkles in the future!
I am not sure what the % of Retinol is in this cream (an important factor while buying) but will say it is a lot more gentle than other Retinol products I have tried.
Rated 4 stars because there are cheaper alternatives and you don't know how much retionol is actually in this product, which is critical.
Brittnee from Florida
Love this product!! It's very moisturizing for my face & feels as though the fine lines get smoothed out.

This ia the first time trying retinol, the Murad Ultra Retinol makes it easy. My skin took about 2 weeks to show ACTUAL visible results. This actually works! I will continue to use it for sure. My skin started having a glow to it that it never had. It was smoother, less texture. Overall a drastic improvement of the appearance of my skin. Absolutely in love with this line!
K. Elizabeth from South Carolina
I think this is the first retinol serum that I've tried that hasn't left me with a chemical burn. For that reason alone I think this product is worth a try. It's definitely safe for those of us with sensitive skin. I did notice improvements in terms of reduction of fine lines especially on my forehead and around my mouth. My skin did feel smoother and looked healthier overall.
I didn't see much change however in terms of this product evening out my skin tone. Besides that I liked this product. I absolutely LOVE the packaging. Also, I love that the lids snap on and stay on. I've had issues with other products with flimsy lids that popped off and end up with product everywhere. Also, I think the snugness of the lid helps to make it a little harder for little hands to work to get into this but still easy for adults to open.

This product goes on smooth and I like the pump as it makes it easy and less clean up. Its not greasy or oily. Used for about a week and didn't really notice much difference. Maybe if used for a longer period of time. I'm going to keep using it in hopes I see results. It does leave my face feeling nice and fresh. Left feeling refreshed all day but seemed just like a basic lotion so far
Kayla from MA
This serum is great I use it at night and it truly helps my under eyes and doesn't leave my skin greasy or oily.
Kelsee from OKC
This product really helped with fine lines and keeping my face moisturized. I would recommend pairing it with the other 2 part system to get the full effect. A small amount goes a long way!
CathyM from NC
This product was sold as a club and send automatically. But it is a good product
Krysta from Phoenix
I have severe desert like skin due to multiple autoimmune diseases and medication. This has brought my skin back to normal!! The texture is so smooth and really brightens my skin! I am in love!
ajd from Brooklyn, NY
I love the feel of this. Goes on very smooth, absorbs quickly, but I can't stand the smell. I will keep using it to see more results, but not loving it so far.
