Most Helpful Positive Review Dry/Dull Skin Saver
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.
Most Helpful Critical Review Just not for me
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.

Feels to heavy and greasy.
Sensitive/aging skin relief
MrsJay from Nevada
I love this. If I had to choose only one skin care product to use for the rest of my days, this would be it. My skin looks smoother, feels softer, and has fewer blackheads. I purchased a sample size of this product when I redeemed some points, which is the only reason why I gave a product containing fragrance a try, but I've now replaced it three times over. Can't say enough good things about this serum.
Millie from Wisconsin
This product is moisturizing enough for a serum, and it does soften the look of tired skin.
If it weren't for what I'm about to inform you on, I would have given it a 3, but
towards the bottom, it smells like straight up tobacco.
I'm not sure why this happened, considering I stored it correctly, but it turned me away. Could just be this bottle or batch, but worth warning others over.
My absolute must have skin care product
Ellen from Florida
I'm pretty sure that this has single handedly erased the fact that I'm in nursing school during a pandemic while doing virtual school for two small kids. My skin has never looked or felt as good as it does now. If i could only have one skin care product, I would pick this. I love this stuff so much!
Never go a day without it!
Em Herx from Twinsburg, OH
As an esthetician, it takes a lot to impress me, but I swear by this serum. I just turned 40, and this, along with the Nutrient Charged Water Gel, are my go to everyday hydrating products. I have raved about this to my co workers and friends. You can definitely see a difference right away!
I will never ever be without My Murad
Kitchenistadeb from Newport NC
I have tried so many products to get rid of dry patchy skin on my nose, and nothing worked until Murad came into my daily and nightly skin care routine! All the top names with all the top claims, none of it worked for me! Murad is the answer for this girl.
Truly - my skin has never looked better
CL from Atlanta
Got this when it was on sale and can see myself paying the full price moving forward due to the fact my skin has never looked better. I use this after washing my face before my moisturizer in the morning and night. I love that it doubles as an eye cream. My face is smoother, brighter and significantly less dry (I have combo skin). I may add some other Murad products to see if that will enhance my face further but so far - SUPER satisfied.
Nicole S. from Salem, OR
I received a mini of this, and I can't continue to use it due to the smell. If you are sensitive to fragrance, I do not suggest buying this.
Great for first time skin care users!
Pri from NJ
I'm totally new to skin care! I'm 32 so I wish I would've started earlier but I'm glad I started now! This serum smells good and has a very nice consistency! I love that it doesn't irritate my dry skin and is so moisturizing! I love the fact that I can use it under my eyes too!! I use this at night after cleansing and toning. No need to use a moisturizer after, this is enough for me!
Not right for me
CF from Dallas, TX
I don't like fragrance. It didn't seem bad at the store, but on the face, it's very strong. I have sensitive skin, and it didn't feel great in the morning after using this before bed.
Love this product!

I have sensitive eyes and this cream works great on my eyes and face. I feel the puffiness decrease and brightens my eyes.
Amazing for Fine Lines
Mariah from Palm Springs
I was skeptical on spending so much money on a serum but I am happy I did! No lies, this serum i used twice a day, once in the morning AFTER I WASHED MY FACE, applied it and then after it dried into my skin i moisturized. After about 3 weeks i noticed my crows feet lines were gone and my face looked smoother and vibrant again. I'm a mom of 3 who works and goes to school, over the last few years stress was affecting my skin and I didnt realize it. I look my age again and youthful. I'm 27 but in pictures my skin looks tired and well over my age. I always recommend this serum to everyone who tells me how perfect my skin looks, but remember it wont work for you if you dont CLEANSE YOUR SKIN, MOISTURIZE and take care of it.!
Great for All/Works!
mariah from palm springs
I bought this after looking at the ingredients and reviews. I have semi sensitive skin, meaning some brands make my break out or get dry rough spots and some dont. I noticed a huge change in my fine lines and they were almost gone after 2 weeks of using it at least once a day. I would clean my face, put this on, wait 10 minutes and then my moisturizer. I love this serum and will buy it again
Horrible rash from this :(
Jenni from NYC
I used this hearing it was ok for sensitive skin and broke out into a horrible rash on face and neck :(

worth every penny! within 3 weeks all the fine lines around my eyes were gone. I wont stop using this!
Love this serum!
Willow from Arizona
This serum is my favorite! I've tried many and some leave your face with a dry feeling, this one doesn't. A little goes a long way. I use it on my face, neck, and décolletage. It's a little expensive but since you are not using a lot of it lasts over a couple months. At least for me it does. Plus you can open the bottle to get every little bit which I appreciate. Good til the last drop.
Lori from Toledo Ohio
I really love this oroduct. I got a small one in a s a gift with a purchase. Some serums can be tacky but not this one and a little goes a long way. I knew I had to get a large suze! I was so disappointed when I no longer saw it when shopping online. I found it when I was at the store in Rossford Ohio and grabbed it up! I am so happy to see it online again and hope it continues because I will buy again!
it is SO good!!

Moisturizing/Revitalizing W/O Being Greasy/Heavy
TMS from Mansfield, TX
I got this as a sample with purchase and it makes my skin feel moisturized and fresh. It makes my skin look supple and radiant. It smells amazing and my skin feels like it's been to the spa! I have oily skin, but this doesn't clog my pores or make me break out like other serums I've tried! That said, I'm not sure about the price point after this sample is done... I might have to sit on it a minute.

This is a fabulous product
Anon from Anywhere
I got a sample of this as a gift with purchase from another murad product and as soon as I was done, I was hesitant to purchase the full size product due to the price but I just had to and the day after using it in my nighttime routine, my skin was radiant, no redness from my mild rosacea and I just knew it was this serum!! Highly recommend!
Always on my night routine
Gaby Monterrey from Irvine, CA
This product was gifted by Murad in return if my honest review. I am loving the Revitalixir serum. This has become part of my nightly routine. I can tell in the morning the difference me eyes feel less stressed. Also it smells amazing. A little goes a long way.
