Rated 4.71 out of 5 stars
I have terribly clogged pores I always have It would leave me with a lot of texture all over especially on my nose ,chin, cheeks and temples. I'd have to wear a full cover foundation and never wanted to be seen bare faced because I had dark dots all over. people understand zits but not hundreds of dark pores I've had ppl ask what are those dots all over your face? my face is fair so those dots are even more noticeable. I never was able to wear glowy foundations or put highlight on my cheekbones and bridge of my nose because I too afraid to draw attention to it. The texture of my nose was especially noticeable like uneven dark Braille and so deep I couldn't even extract them.I know you're not supposed to pick but I'd be so desperate just for smooth skin I'd accept the redness and broken skin it'd leave me with if I could lessen the amount of bumps. I thought a strong face wash would solve my problem and sometimes glycolic based products would help but just temporarily and salicylic acid just helped acne the clogged pores caused but salicylic didn't unclog my congested skin. I don't like scrubs daily even though those helped turn my skin over more than just washes, I needed something stronger in a different way. This is the only product I have ever rated five stars it has turned over my skin has gotten all the dead skin makeup dirt out of my pores and my skin is the clearest it's EVER been thanks to this product the dark dots are gone my skin is smooth. I saw instant results from the first over night use and after prolonged use I was able to go from a whole over night layer daily use to just spot treatments when I thought I needed it. I was also able to buy a gentle face wash because this did all the work for me that was nice. I know this is mainly ment for anti aging but this has changed my life my skin is so smooth also my pores are way smaller I'm no longer afraid to be seen bare face or wear highlight. It's never irritated my skin I can build it up onto spots that are alil more stubborn without redness or dryness. The smell is a little offputting it smells like floral baby powder. I thought that was going to irritate and break me out when I first used this product because I'm normally sensitive to scents but it faded once it dried and didn't affect me at all. I ran out a few days ago and I can already see my skin reverting back to its old ways so I need to go buy more the packaging is heavy so don't let that fool you into thinking you have a lot left. turn the bottle upside down to get a feeling for how much is left the bottle has a white color paper surrounding the yellow cream inside so if u turn it upside down you'll see the inside mechanism move upwards as you run out. If you have pore problems please try this I can't imagine my life without this now.
I was using the Murad daily retinol cream and switched over to the night cream with hydration, thinking this would work better for my dry skin and because I always applied at night. I still use a separate moisturizer afterwards and always have as I am aware retinol can dry your skin out. I am telling you DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT if you have dry skin. I've been using Aloe, baby oil, argan oil, aquafor, vaseline whatever I can to repair the dryness and make the burning and itching go away. My skin is SO dry, it's flaking off. Someone mentioned sandpaper and that's exactly what your face turns into. At first I thought I was having an allergic reaction to something, but I know now it is this cream. It won't happen at first, but after 2-3 weeks of use you'll develop a rash and then sandpaper. I stopped using it for a week and then restarted to see if it was the cream, and it was. Keep in mind after a week off of using it my face still wasn't healed. It became so uncomfortable/painful honestly I wanted to tear my face off.

Great beginner level retinol with lovely moisturizer too. I use this on my neck where my skin is more sensitive and this doesn't irritate at all.
JLS from St Louis, MO
I wake in morning to find lots of dry skin and lines from the dryness. Not as moisturizing as Murad Resurgence Night Creme. disappointed.
Candy from Sewell, NJ
After using this product for several weeks, I noticed a visible improvement in the appearance of my skin. My fine lines and wrinkles appeared less noticeable, and my skin felt smoother and more hydrated. I also appreciated that the cream absorbed quickly and did not leave a greasy or heavy feeling on my skin.
Anna from NY
Great product! Applies great over the skin. Needed one pump for my face and one for my neck. I love the packaging. There is no fragrance that I can tell which I appreciate in a night cream. It is pricy but murad works.
Kelli from Jacksonville Florida
This retinol is OK. It's definitely more tame than other retinol's that I've used in the past. I haven't ramped it up to a every night thing but more like a night or two during the week. I think I need to continue using to see full benefits, but so far OK.
Angy from Florida
This night cream is good for helping with expression lines, giving the skin a fresh and youthful appearance. I like its packaging, it is very practical. It is a product that I have implemented to my pm routine and I love it.
Sara from Florida
I was excited to try this product for the ingredients. Murad often has high quality products that I've enjoyed. I've used for only about a week but so far no issues with dryness or breakouts, which sometimes happen to me when I use retinol and thick anti-aging creams. The dispenser is also nice for dispensing the product easily.
Mirzha from Tulsa, OK
This was gifted by Murad. I'm really happy with the size of the product especially for the price. There hasn't been a single myriad skin care product that has not helped my skin in one way or another and this was not a done for sure. I like the way it feels my skin experience, no rotation and I have oily and sensitive skin. I definitely think you could incorporate this in your skin care routine and enjoy it.
Mandy from New york
Very interesting product design! I really like the push mechanism. It allows for the product to remain clean and sanitary while still helping to control the product amount. The cream itself is very thick and has great of effects. It has great anti-aging affects and also combines ingredients like hyaluronic acid and glycerin to provide a great hydration boots to the skin. Gifted by Murad
Millie from Florida
I like the brand a lot, I been using this products for many years and my skin is always on point, I would buy my whole routine so I can use the same brand, I know is a little pricey but trust me it worth every penny.
simran from Fort wayne IN
My skin has never been this much healthy and firmed. It is quite expensive but worth the price. I an using it as a night time moisturizer since it has retinol in it and make sure you use sunscreen in morning. Overall it is a great moisturizer to try
from New York , ny
I like using this at night after using a toner because I need to hydrate my skin afterwards. Additionally, the packaging is great keeping it vacuum seal. It does not leave a sticky residue and not sensitive
Bethany from Orlando
Such a great product!! I am in love with the bottle and the push top to get the product out. It's so different and makes it so easy to apply. Not to mention this smells amazing and gives even better results. I would defiantly buy this product again!
Barbara from Texas
I received this product in exchange for my honest review. All words and opinions are my own.
This retinol cream is really nice! I have only had slight irritation and barley any redness. It's so gentle that my sensitive skin is handling it really well. I also really like the dispenser and can't wait to see long term results.
Yam from New York, NY
Awesome retinol cream, it was actually my first time trying retinol to be honest, but I can tell this one doesn't disappoint. My skin didn't feel to sensible using it and I could definitely see a difference on my fine lines after using it for a month.
from Charlotte, NC
I'm a big fan of airless pumps, and honestly that's what attracted me to this product at first. But it is definitely a good night cream! Very moisturizing and leaves my skin feeling fresh and plump I'm the morning.
Vince from Honolulu, HI
There's an nice thick but not thick texture on this cream that made me feel like my face was getting more firm. There's been an improved look on my texture and radiance on my skin. I'm also getting passed my mid-30's and I'm not getting any younger. This really did help improve my skin! I can't wait to see what my skin will look like with continued use!
C from Ca
I have been using retinol products for a few years now so I can't say much about this for beginners but I didn't find it to be drying at all and was fairly gentle even on my sensitive skin. I would recommend
Lynne from Michigan
Great retinol even for beginners! It has a thick hydrating texture and I did not find it caused any redness or irritation. Slowly noticing improved texture and softening of fine lines. Gifted by Murad
bella from new york
this retinol is great for sensitive and dry skin as there's no purging period or tingling sensation on my skin. it's a mild enough formula to where it's effective but doesn't cause me any irritation. [complimentary of murad]
Skeller from Ham Lake, MN
I have relatively sensitive skin and fine lines and wrinkles. I am 40 and this is the best night cream/retinol I have tried. I know she's pricey, but she's worth it.
Silvat from Chicago, Il
I received this retinol as a gift and I'm really liking the results so far. I have used this every 4 days and I've noticed my skin tone evening out and reduced redness. I'm excited to continue using the retinol and would probably purchase later!
Alayna from Alabama
This cream has became my go to moisturizer in my nighttime routine recently. It's very hydrating and smooth on the skin. I love the packaging on this and how it gives you just the perfect amount of product to apply. I also love that It has so many good benefits for fine lines, dark circles and anti aging.
Fareeha from Canton, MI
This night cream is incredible! I love the multipurpose abilities of this product and also the packaging! It doesn't have a strong smell and the texture is so nice! It's hydrating and great for my dry skin! I also love the pumping dispenser which gives you the perfect amount for application!

Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream has been a game-changer for my skin. I've noticed a significant improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles since I started using it. The cream is lightweight and absorbs quickly, which is great because I don't like feeling like I have a lot of product on my face at night. I also appreciate that the retinol is encapsulated, which has minimized any sensitivity or irritation. Overall, I highly recommend this night cream to anyone looking for an effective anti-aging product.
