I don't like to spend a lot on my skin care products. I've found that Curel and Suave products tend to work very well for the most part. But of all of the facial moisturizers I've tried, the Murad Essential-C line is the best and is well worth the extra cost. It absorbs quickly and leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth. My skin tends to be dry, but it doesn't normally absorb other moisturizers very well. My skin has reacted very well to Murad. I use it in the morning and in the evening and have noticed a difference in my skin texture. Very nice! The scent is a bit unusual. Not offensive in any way, but you might want to see if you like it before making your final purchase.
I really liked this moisturizer. I normally have oily/combination skin, but it was very dry this winter. This product felt great on, smelled good and had some really beneficial ingredients. My skin is sensitive-it gets red and irritated easily, but this product did not cause any problems. I love that it has 30spf and not just 15spf. I just wish it wasn't so expensive.

A little goes a long way. It can be oily if you apply too much. I have sensitive skin and this has helped so much keeping it protected from the sun. Biggest con would be the price.

I prefer kinship or dermalogica. Didn't notice anything spectacular.

This is awesome product!
Emily from Phoenix AZ
I love this SPF. It is light weight and blends in very nicely. It gives a nice glow to the skin, if you like a glowy look it's perfect if you're too oily you might not like it. Giving it 4 stars cause the price is too high for the size.

Complete oil slick all day.i can't believe it never sank into my skin. Just sat on top rubbing off, sliding off, looking like I dunk my head in a liquid highlighter. Not worth the price for all the negatives.i can't imagine putting even a small amount of makeup over this. Sticking to my HOLY GRAIL BIORE WATTERY ESSENCE SPF50++++. It's clear, doesn't stink,absorbs into skin within minutes & the Biore is not greasy once it dies down. It's like a toner consistency. Goggle it.holy grail.

I have been using this Murad moisturizer for months and i love it. After first application, i mix a little bit of Murad with my liquid foundation.

You'd think that with a price tag this hefty, you're getting a tube of liquid gold sunscreen but this stuff is truly trash. It does not absorb! It just sits on top of the skin. Well just keep rubbing it in you say? No. Trying to rub it in, or trying to put makeup on top of it, causes it to ball up and flake off everywhere. It just balls into little pills and ruins your makeup, your outfit, your once clean bathroom counter & floor, your mood and your entire life. Just stick with something cheap and easy like Cereve.

I use this as my daily moisturizer. It's great under makeup. Absorbs quickly and non greasy.

Mik from Garden Grove, CA
I LOVE this product. It has everything you need- sunscreen, moisturizer, and vitamin C! I have very sensitive oily skin and this is the one moisturizer that works for me

Murad's great for sensitive skin. Lightweight moisturizer is my everyday go-to for moisture with spf30.
Michelle from West Point, NY
I love love love this moisturizer!! It brightens your skin and protects it with 30 SPF. It is the best of both worlds and it has the slightest scent of orange which I love!!
cat from florida
I tried this because it was half off and one of the few moisturizers with at least 30spf ,I like that it doesn't feel too heavy on my face, doesn't cause breakouts.
Liz from Arleta, ca
STAY away if you have no skin issues or Even if you do, it might make it worse. Love the cleanser but will never use this product again. Only used it 2 times and it did so much damage.
SB from Texas
Two in one helps in the morning when we all are rushing to work . Does not feel
Sticky on my face.

I use this under my makeup
Vee from Chicago, Il
Love this product! Lightweight and a little goes a long way! I have sensitive dry to normal skin and this does wonders. Finding a good moisturizer that also has spf cuts down my morning routine without compromising the protection.
Elin from Duluth, MN
Nice, light texture and smell. I've been using it for only a week or so, so it's probably to soon to see results, but I can say it feels good on th skin, absorbs nicely and is not greasy at all. I love that it has SPF.

I used this as a moisturizer/ spf my skin looks and feels amazing

I suffer from extremely sensitive skin- always have.. that plus some adhd tactile sensitivity makes it extremely difficult for me to find lotion type things that I like/work on my face and body. After pouring so much money into different products, routines, etc. only to cause... not just acne but like water bump breakouts, I took a chance on this during 21 days of beauty and WOW. It feels great on my hands after I apply (some lotions bother me so much I have to immediately wash it off my hands, one of which being the dermatologist recommended eltaMD something) and it's been maybe a week? two weeks? of regular use and it doesn't feel burning and I haven't had any sort of reaction! I'm a little angry it took so long to find a product that worked and what does work is so expensive... oh well. Being able to actually take care of my skin is nice
Gloria from Pacoima CA
Amazing product. I love it. Using it since 2018.
Skin Care Guru from Kansas City
I love how this moisturizer protects the skin, but also hydrates it with out over doing it. I have an oily T zone. I always end up with moisturizers that over do it. This one lays perfect under the make up, and since I've been using it, say since January, I know this is going to definitely going to come in the clutch all year long!

separates in bottle, just the worst i've ever purchased.
Mari from Los Angeles
If you're undecided about purchasing this, I highly suggest you buy 2 for the price of 1! You will not regret it! I look forward to the 21 days of Beauty just so I cans stock up on all my MURAD products. I've been using MURAD for 1 yr and my face has never looked this good. Even skin tone, acne free, bright, etc. I use this everyday after my cleanser and toner, and before I apply my face primer under my make up! It's lightweight smells like citrus! And makes my face feel nice and soft. 1 bottle lasted me almost a year! I hope this review helps because I really don't understand any of the negative reviews.
MURAD is definitely the best skin care brand out there! (I only use MURAD products!) Yes it's pricy but you get what u pay for! And my face is priceless! ☺️
Stephbella83 from USA
I thought this was a good product for dry skin and aging skin. Well I was wrong! It has a nice light orange scent but it doesn't do anything for my skin. I'm so disappointed because I paid a lot for this small tiny bottle what a rip off!
