    Murad's # 1 fan

    Comments about Murad Resurgence Retinol Youth Renewal Serum:

    I use only Murad products!! I have oily acne prone skin, and use the acne line. The serum is awesome, its not oily and makes my skin soft & smooth. I use the entire line of retinol products. I don't breakout, and only dab on the moisturizer in areas that I need it. The eye serum really works! I have seen a reduction in my fine lines.

      Comments about Murad Resurgence Retinol Youth Renewal Serum:

      I have always been worried about my enlarged pores across my nose and upper cheek area. Someone had suggested since we loose collegian in our faces as we get older a retinol might help my pores appear a bit smaller and suggested this serum. Because of the price I wanted to try the travel size just to make sure it would work. While using the travel kit, I could see that in about three weeks my skin tone had started to even out and that my pores were if fact beginning to look smaller! I decided to invest in the larger bottle. Over the course of 2.5 months of regular usage and exfoliating, my skin has even out, pores look smaller, fine lines are beginning to disappear, and the overall look of my face is looking firm and tight. Over all I would say this is the one serum that does what it is supposed to do. I would recommend putting a moisturizer over it (the Murad Resurgence Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream is a good one) and wear sunscreen in the morning as retinol does make your skin more light sensitive.

        from Maryland

        Comments about Murad Resurgence Retinol Youth Renewal Serum:

        This doesn't burn my skin and goes on smooth but I feel like I use 2-3 pumps because it sinks in so quick, it also has a strange perfume scent to it that I don't like. The one thing that bothered me was that after applying it, I looked at my hands and noticed there are tiny pieces of sparkles in the serum. I will use the rest of the bottle but won't be buying again as I feel there are better retinol products out there and not as expensive.

              So far I'm happy. My skin is sensitive, the directions specify to use a moisturizer after applying, definitely follow these directions. The first 2 times I used it without following up with a moisturizer and my skin did begin to have very minor flaking besides that I think it's great.

                • Q:

                  I noticed that there is also a retinol night cream. What is the difference between the serum and the night cream? I am 20 but interested in introducing retinol into my skin care routine. Two of my largest skin frustrations are large, visible pores, and spots from acne. I have heard that retinol helps with this, and i also would like to get a head start on preventing wrinkles because i seem to have loose skin (already have fine lines). However, I cannot afford both this cream and the serum! Which would you recommend I use?

                    A:

                    The two products are different. If you can only purchase one product I would get the serum. The Retinol Youth Renewal Serum is more active and will target all the concerns you mentioned above.

                    Since this is a nightly treatment for the face only if you are applying one-two pumps to your face every night it would last between 3-6 months.

                    A:

                    What makes the Retinol Youth Renewal Serum so amazing isn't just the retinol in the product. It's the whole formulation working together to target visible signs of aging. One interesting fact about our retinol is it's in a tri-active technology form. Which means we have a fast acting which targets the receptors quickly then we have a slow acting which is in a lipid encapsulation so as it penetrates it helps to soothe and hydrate the skin then finally we have a booster to help both forms work at their optimal levels.
