Murad Intensive C Radiance Peel Mask

Hello there you beautiful humans! It’s time for a skincare review and let me tell you, today’s is quite exciting. I’m telling you about one of my two favourite face masks (and though it costs an arm and a leg) – It’s worth it and it will be one that I will definitely be repurchasing! That was a total spoiler alert but this face mask deserves a little sneak peek preview, even in the introduction. Okay before I end up doing the entire review here in the intro how about we jump into the actual review? Sounds good? Cool!

Let’s go!

Targeted skin type: Those looking to combat dull looking skin, and achieve smooth and hydrated skin.

Facts about this skincare product. This product claims to instantly brighten the skin and help reduce the signs of ageing. It also claims to hydrate the skin and give you a luminous complexion.

What is its purpose? This product is a face mask that contains vitamin C and it’s designed to be applied and left on for 10 minutes, and while it’s on it exfoliates, brightens and smoothes the skin.

Does it achieve this? Yes, it does. As soon as you rinse it off your skin feels fresh AF. The skin feels very smooth (one of the only two face masks I have that helps smooth out the bumps on my skin). I also notice the complexion of my skin changes and my skin looks more radiant and healthy.

Packaging: A cylindrical plastic bottle with a pump!

How much product do you get?: You get 50 ml of product

Did it irritate my skin? When you wear this face mask, your skin will tingle. It isn’t painful or anything but perhaps if you have sensitive skin it may feel like too much for you – bare that in mind.

How many times a week do you use it? I use this face mask about 1-2 times a week.

Morning or night?: I like to use this in my PM routine.

Does your skin adapt to it over time and therefore become less effective?: I haven’t noticed a reduction in the effectiveness of this face mask. Each time I use it, my skin feels super smooth and looks bright and healthy!

Formula: This face mask has the look and feel of a moisturizer. You apply it all over the face and it looks slightly milky on the skin. It has quite a thin and smooth texture and is super easy to apply!

Pros: It leaves the skin a smooth, radiant, healthy look and it also leaves the skin feeling fresh and clean! It’s super effective at smoothing the skin (like even those bumps which lots of products don’t help with). It doesn’t irritate my skin or cause any dryness, rough patches in any way. Be sure to rinse it off after 10 minutes though.

Cons: The price isn’t super friendly but when it comes to skincare that actually works, I find a high price tag to still be worth it!

Price: $94 AUD

Availability: Sephora Au, Murad site Au, Adore beauty

Rating: 9/10

Overall thoughts: This peel mask is fantastic. The surface of the skin is improved greatly with this mask and you get the welcome bonus of radiant, healthy looking skin! I usually don’t notice any change to my complexion with many brightening skincare products, but this one makes a massive difference.

Would I repurchase it? I will definitely be repurchasing this face mask!

And that wraps up this review! Have you guys tried this intensive C radiance peel mask by Murad? Are you into Vitamin C in your skincare products? Have you tried any Murad products? Drop a comment and let me know! I hope you all have the best day and I’ll catch up with you guys in the next post.

    I have been using Vitamin C serum from different brands and I’m hooked! I have dull skin problems and I believe that Vit C has helped with that. Definitely will look into this one 🙂

      I prefer more hydration from my serums (a.k.a hyaluronic acid) but this face mask allows me to use Vitamin C in my skincare without swapping serums
