As I approach my 30's, I've gotten much better about my nighttime skincare regime. This line from Murad is a good option to start entering the world of retinol. F or best results, we are meant to use in combination with Retinol Youth Renewal Serum and Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Serum. This super-trio is buffered by gentle hydrating ingredients that make sure you don't get the flake or irritation that's known to come with retinol.
Overall: High end, quality retinol product, very popular and admired brand. It's a nice option for a simple 3-step nighttime care kit. Light and easy to layer together, not greasy.
Packaging: it is great to have the pump on the jar. It's also great & necessary that the container keeping the product away from light and air.
Ingredients: Overall this does not have the cleanest ingredients, very strong chemicals in here. Very potent, but not the most gentle option on the market for sensitive skin. The retinol is a newer formula, not the barebones formulas that are known for irritation. Although I still had a noticeable, flakey dry spot under my eyebrow. This is known to happen with retinol.
Fragrance ingredients aren't the best for sensitive skins. Small amounts of very volatile, synthetic environmentally toxic ingredients. Shea & other ingredients are there for antioxidants and to help moisturize. Peptide-rich red algae extract helps improve firmness and elasticity.
Results: I have been using for about 5 weeks. I haven't seen dramatic results yet, but ingredients list leads me to be confident that I will around week 12. This product is known to take 12 weeks or more to really see effect set in. Which is expected as retinol, essentially gentler formulas, are known to take this long to see results.
I think this is a decent night cream. While I have yet to see if evening of my skin tone, I did love that this product made my skin feel soft, smooth, and hydrated. Also, I loved that overall look of my skin had after using this. I looked more refreshed and like I had a glow.
I definitely did notice some firming especially in my lower face where I carry most of my face weight. Also, the packaging is gorgeous and the pump is so unique. Loved that is pumps out just the right amount for each application. I didn't have any issues with chemical burns or irritation. So I think Murad did a great job of making this sensitive skin friendly.
MURAD LIFER NOW from Royal Oak
Finally a retinol cream that works for crows feet, smile lines & actually works on dark circles under my eyes. My face has never felt & looked better & my dark circles are ALMOST GONE. I love this stuff - I am hooked. I have always loved the Murad lines, but now I am seriously a Murad lifer. Make sure to apply moisturizer afterwards! I've never had an issue with dry skin because I am a moisturizer freak lol but I really believe it hastens the results! Wonderful product.

I have one fine line under my eye. This stuff didn't help diminish it. Paired it with the serum just to be sure I was getting the full power of the product. That was just a waste of money. Seriously, just use Aveeno hand lotion and you'll see the same results.
I do like that this product is free of questionable ingredients, so I'm giving it an extra star.

I've tried other night creams and haven't had luck with them. I either have a reaction to them or they are too thick to apply and leave my face oily. This night cream defeats all of those issues. It's lightweight and easy to apply and smells great!
Julia from Portland, OR
I use this every other night (because I alternate with a vitamin c serum). When I first started I was getting tiny wrinkles in my forehead and smile lines and after using this for a few weeks I noticed they completely went away! I love this stuff. Not too heavy but still moisturizing for my dry skin. Highly recommend and will keep buying this product!

i've struggled w cystic acne for YEARS and an ulta employee recommended this line for me to try. i ended up going back to the store and getting the WHOLE murad retinol line, the vitamin C toner, and the matte purifier. This line worked WONDERS for my skin and has completely changed my texture. i usually have combination skin that starts out dry and fluctuates between looking oily by the afternoon or staying super dry, and my face is SUPER smooth and glowing! i do not have anything bad to say about any of their products!!

This product did not work for me at all. I got irritation, redness, and burning sensation on my skin. My whole face feel like sand paper and still is.

Nightly routine it is great!
Randi from Indiana
I've been using the Murad retinol line for quite a while, at least a few months. It has helped diminish my 11s, between my brows. I like this formulation, I find it easy enough to apply nightly, although I've used retinol before. I don't like that you can't see the percentages, but then again it's from a dermatologist and a brand that's been around for many years. It is pricey, but so far I like what I see, and I like that it's gentle enough it can be used every night. I'm 34 so fine lines are just now becoming a thing that I am worried about and I feel like this is setting me on the right path for great skin.
Ex Murad User from CA
I used this night cream all last year and absolutely loved the way it made my skin feel, but since they changed their packaging I noticed a change in the consistency of the cream as well. I contacted Murad and they claim that there was no formula change, however it is clearly more of a gel now and less of the thick luxurious cream that it used to be. It takes a lot more product to cover my face and so I'm going through the container faster. At this price point it isn't worth it anymore so I'm searching for a new product.

I have been using this night cream for 2 weeks now and I'm already noticing a difference in the tone and texture of my skin! Love love love!!!
Mimi from Newport Beach, CA
I haven't used anything in my face except Clinique but I'm getting old and need more help. My skin is prone to dry red patches and this made it so much worse. I wasn't able to use it long enough to see if it reduced lines.
Catlady7 from Arkansas
This product is awesome! The results were immediate. I use it at nighttime only. Skin feels refreshed in the morning. Dark spots from acne scarring immediately improved and overall skin improved.
Maya from San Antonio
Very moisturizing and so it does the job.

This renewal night cream is amazing and a miracle worker. My face literally is sooo smooth, bright, vibrant and fresh thanks to this amazing night serum!
Elle from Wisconsin
If you are sensitive to retinols, this may be a great way to add it in your routine. Combining moisturizing ingredients and retinol, you get a "buffer" so the retinol doesn't terrorize your skin.
For those who already have a retinol in their routine or can tolerate regular retinol, this product may not be needed.
Brittnee from Florida
What sort of magic is in this? In one week wrinkles my wrinkles started clearing up.
Jaded Beautiful from Columbus IN
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!

Goes on very well and smooth leaving skin fresh. But sadly haven't seen much of a result yet but will continue to user until it's gone and hope for results along the way. I have combination skin so with it being winter my skin dries out sometimes. Give moisture but about back to normal by morning. It isn't a heavy cream and not greasy.
Sam from Miami, Fl
This night cream is not too heavy. I love waking up every morning with glowing moisturize skin
Kayla from MA
First and foremost love that this is cruelty free! I never thought I needed a night cream at my age until I saw the benefits and how great my skin started looking.
Kelsee from OKC
I have been looking for a night cream that isn't too greasy and doesn't leave a residue on my pillow....and that works! This is great. It does not burn my face and has not irritated my skin, either. I would recommend this product...a little pricey, but worth the money!
