Murad: Refreshing Cleanser



I love that this Murad cleanser doesn’t dry out my skin or sting in my eyes when I remove mascara using it. Also, you only have to use a little amount of cleanser each time, meaning that the relatively large tube lasts long.


Murad is pretty expensive (especially in Denmark – In the US it’s “only” $32! – which is around half-price).


The Murad cleanser is within the sub-brand “Age Reform”. It is supposed to have a “non-drying formula” that “soothes skin by washing away excess surface oil, makeup, and impurities with softening extracts of Cucumber, Hawaiian White Ginger, and Algae.”

I don’t know how much my skin’s age is “reformed”, but I really like that this cleanser is not over-drying my skin like some other cleansers and makeup removers do. Also, as mentioned above, it doesn’t sting in my eyes when rubbing it in them to remove mascara. I tried others that made my eyes water, red and/or that stung a lot – perhaps they weren’t meant to be used for eyes or my eyes were too sensible. Either way, I don’t want to go through self-torture every time I have to remove mascara. Further, I am not one for having a facial cleanser and an eye makeup remover. I want to be able to use one thing for removing makeup, so this is a good fit for me.

To touch upon the “duration” of this product, it really lasts! As in, “when will this tube be empty!?”. I have used the Murad cleanser almost every single night for at least a month, and I barely see that it is used. I absolutely love products that lasts. I’ve experienced too many (expensive) products that are empty within no time (*cough* YoungBlood *cough*). So even though it’s an expensive cleanser, it’s not that bad in the long run.

  1. What type of skin do you have? Combination, dry, sensitive…? Do you have acne or blackheads sometimes? I do. I’m working on my nose area. I get blackheads that I can’t stand knowing are there. I know this is slightly off topic but do you have a favorite cleanser/exfoliator all-in-one product? I have one (Aveda) but am curious what yours is.
