Murad Essential C Day Moisturiser SPF 30 review

Murad skincare is quickly becoming one of my favourite luxury brands. I especially love them because they have a lot of value sets which allows me to test the product before deciding to invest in the full size. Today’s post will be a full review of their moisturiser I got in one of their sets.

Murad SPF review

Murad Essential C Day Moisturiser SPF 30 PA+++ is part of their Environmental Shield range which promises to protect skin from the environment, sun and improve dull skin. The star ingredient across products in this range is Vitamin C. Regarding the moisturizer the brand says:

Recommended: For Improving skin’s radiance and firmness, Protecting skin from UVA/UVB rays and sun damage, Preserving hydration all day

A moisturiser that shields skin from damaging and ageing UV rays and free radical damage. It also improves skin’s radiance and firmness. The refreshing citrus formula makes skin look more radiant, youthful and supple whilst offering broad spectrum sun protection, which screens skin from harmful and ageing UV rays.

Experience

Murad Essential C Day Moisturiser SPF 30 is a super lightweight lotion that leaves the skin dewy and glowing. I’ve been using it as the last step in my AM and it layers well over serums without piling. It also layers well when I reapply my SPF during the day.  This doesn’t smell like the usual SPF cream, it does have a pleasant smell, it’s almost citrusy but mixed with chemicals lol. The scent lingers on but it’s not overpowering

Ingredients

In addition to Vitamin C, it also has a few other beneficial ingredients, there is a lot of moisturising and antioxidant ingredients in it. This is a chemical-based sunscreen and a PA rating of 3 means it provides a good amount of protection from UVA rays.

Is it invisible on dark skin? YES. The moisturizer sinks into the skin quickly and leaves it glowing. It’s 100% invisible on dark skin

Verdict

I really really like this moisturiser. This is a chemical-based SPF moisturiser that leaves the skin moisturised and protected from the sun. The PA rating also tells you that you are getting a good amount of protection from UVA rays (causes the skin to turn brown hence hyperpigmentation to darken). It does leave the skin very dewy so if you have oily skin you may not like this. It also has fragrance so I’m not sure how sensitive skin will react. It doesn’t pill when layered but there have been a few times when I noticed some pilling when I have used too much of it. In terms of actually moisturising the skin, it does a good job.

I will recommend this. The full size of this is £65 but I recommend getting it in the kit which allows you to try it before spending £65! The kit I got also contains the cleanser, sample serum, samples of their glycolic pads and detox moisturiser. This kit is no longer available but you can get a similar one, like the one below

The Start Bright Set is £35 on LookFantastic
