Questions & Answers for Murad Hydro-Dynamic® Ultimate Moisture

Question
Does this have any scent to it?
I realize it says no synthetic fragrances, but does this have any strong scent to it? Floral or otherwise? I use Murad Perfecting Night Cream and need something heavier for the winter.

I am very acne prone (have to get extracting facials once a month) so moisturizers terrify me because I cant stand for them to break me out. ESPECIALLY heavy creams. Murad have nailed it. This is rich enough that it penetrates and balances dryness BUT I havent seen a pimple since I started using it (4 months now)......so, not only does it NOT cause acne - I think it is actually preventing it!!

Does it firm?
After defying father time in my 30's, my skin is showing it's age at 45. And then some. Main concern now - sagging. Most firming creams I've triend have provided zero results, or have been too drying. Has anyone had any firming benefits with this product?

I'm 48 and started experiencing some sagging too just this year. I've used this product for less than a week and my skin does look and feel firmer. I'm amazed at the results I've gotten from this moisturizer after trying so many different ones that didn't live up to their claims of helping with firming and anti-aging.

I too have always looked 5-10 years younger than my age. I still do because I am crazy about skin care.
But, since I am in my mid 30's....I need a lil' but more moisture to plump and I love peptides in my creams to firm it up.
Imo, the ingredients are awesome and I have seen that glow and firmness again.
Plus, I since this is not greasy I can use it day and night. And I haven't got that random nasty once a month zit with this. yay!
I honestly love this stuff!!!

No, but I got this to wear under an SPF UVA/UVB sunscreen from my dermatologist that was too dry to use alone. I use the Hydro-Dynamic first, let it absorb for a few seconds, then add the sunscreen layer and it has been an ideal combination for the winter! No heavy or greasy layer feeling on my face either, I think because this moisturizer is so well absorbed. I hope it works as well for you!
