Murad Essential- C skin care line

I've actually started to use this range after I read such a good review about this line on Youtube from a Youtuber named VioletArtistry. She mentioned about how Murad skincare line has helped her with her acne and so on and so forth.

So, I decided to try the range. I bought these product at Singapore cause these line are not easily available in Malaysia. I managed to try the whole products from this range and cause currently I didn't use any of these products anymore, I don't have the pictures of  the content from the actual product. Sorry about that.

Basically these line is for people who are concern with uneven skin tone, wants a brighter skin and to help with those pigmentation and age spots. The main active ingredients in the skin care line is vitamin C but it also packed with other anti-oxidants such as vitamin A and E.

Do I like these line? As I mentioned before, I no longer used this line. I found that its quite expensive, not easily available, and the only products that I like from these range is the Essential-C moisturizer and the Active Radiance Serum and the rest are to me just okay. When I first used this, I like it a lot. It doesn't cause any breakout and it does make my overall skin brighter but I found that after a prolong used (>3 months), my skin just doesn't respond to it anymore. Maybe because it so used to the level of vitamin C and that's when I decided that I wanted to try something else. I found that the Active Radiance serum is actually good quite when used with the Essential-C moisturizer. When I started these duo together that I think it has given me the best effect. The serum is absorb quite easily and non-oily as well.

The Murad Essential-C cleanser is to me quite average. It has a gel texture and has like orange-y colour scrub particles that sort of melt when you start washing your face. It cleanse well and doesn't dry my skin out but not a must in this range.

The Murad Essential- C toner is the one that I hate the most. Simply because it make a different but not a good one. Maybe because the toner is too moisturizing and hydrating that its just too much for my skin. I think for those of you who has oily/combination skin, you might want to skip this like totally. I actually gave it to my mum who has dry skin and she also think that its too hydrating. This actually make my skin oilier and cause breakout which is weird  because once I stopped this and resume with the rest of the products, I don't get breakout any more. The only thing that I like about this is that it come in a spray but that's it.haha

The Murad Essential-C moisturizer is quite good I think. It has spf 30 and its lightweight and it absorb well onto skin without leaving any oiliness which I like and I think its the star product from this line. 

I've also tried a sample size of Essential- C Daily Renewal Complex which to me is packed with silicone and actually didn't quite like it cause its just sit on my face and feel 'heavy'. The other products such as the sunscreen,  AHA/BHA exfoliating cleanser and the eye cream are just okay to me. 

All in all I think these line is actually quite good for people who wants a brighter looking skin because that's what exactly the result I get from these line but as I said after been using these for a while it just not as effective to me but I think this line is best for prevention. Not sure how this product worked for pigmentation issue because I don't have a lot of pigmentation but I just wish to have a brighter skin
