Murad AHA BHA Cleanser

Murad’s AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser has significantly improved my skin. I have always loved and used Dr Murad’s products, but this was my first time trying this particular cleanser. I’ve been using it for a month now, about 2 to 3 times a week; and my skin is glowing!

I had engagement photos taken last week and I really wanted to prep my skin beforehand. For the most part, we had a mild summer, but my skin was stuck in the “my summer color is fading” phase. I always wear SPF and I don’t purposely tan in the sun, but you still get some color during the summer (which looks great, I won’t lie!). With my summer skin tone dulling out, I really needed a pick me up.

What I liked most about this cleanser was its impressive ingredients list. It’s formulated with three exfoliating acids –  Salicylic, Lactic and Glycolic acids. All have been proven to help shed the top layer of skin to reveal youthful looking skin. It also has jojoba oil in it to help smooth and polish the skin. It’s effective, yet gentle enough not to cause irritation.

I’ve been following up with Murad Advanced Active Radiance Serum and Murad Essential-C Day Moisture SPF 30.

ysl-gold

YSL will be debuting a new premium skincare line in February. It’s key ingredient is saffron, a rare spice found in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco.

Or Rouge, meaning “red gold” in French, also a nickname for saffron, promises to treat fine lines, wrinkles, lack of firmness and dullness, and other signs of aging.

Saffron contains a high amount of a glycan known as crocin. As we age, the amount of natural occurring glycans in our skin diminishes. This causes our skin to lose elasticity and age. Glycans help skin cells communicate, which keeps tissue structure firm and intact. Adding glycans to daily beauty routines may help aid in the fight against aging.

Or Rouge will launch exclusively at Harrods in the U.K. starting in early February, followed by a mid-March prelaunch in the U.S. on yslbeautyus.com. Or Rouge’s pricing is to be $420 for the 50-ml. cream, $240 for the 15-ml. eye cream and $150 for the 200-ml. lotion.
