Murad Renewing Cleansing Cream

What it is: An ultramoisturizing, pearlized wash that gently exfoliates to restore radiance and protect skin’s natural moisture barrier. What it is formulated to do: Renewing Cleansing Cream is a highly-concentrated, ultramoisturizing cleanser formulated to rejuvenate and rebalance hormonally aging skin. Papaya enzymes provide non-abrasive exfoliation while algae extract hydrates, soothes, and firms skin. Apricot and starflower oils work to provide intense hydration and improve skin resilience while essential fatty acids help maintain skin’s barrier function. Renewing Cleansing Cream is recommended as a step one cleanser in any Murad resurgence regimen and restores skin’s youthful glow as part of Dr. Murad’s Inclusive Health&reg system of care. What it is formulated WITHOUT: - Parabens - Sulfates - Phthalates What else you need to know: RepleniCell™, Murad’s patent-pending, proprietary technology, helps skin act younger in three ways: it helps skin attract water it binds water to the skin and it helps skin retain water. This product is dermatologist developed, scientifically proven, and is not tested on animals. Research results: In a Murad Inclusive Health Center&reg study, after using Resurgence for 30 days: - 98% of women saw an improvement in the overall health of their skin - 100% of women reported they were more hydrated - 96% of women reported that their skin looked and felt firmer - 93.9% of women saw a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles - 94% of women reported that their pores appear to be smaller and less visible - 88% of women reported their skin looked and felt significantly smoother Regimen consisted of Renewing Cleansing Cream, Age-Diffusing Serum, Sheer Lustre Day Moisture SPF 15 | PA+++ and Age-Balancing Night Cream. Individual results will vary. Study results on file.

Question
Eye makeup remover?
Is this safe and effective to remove eye makeup (i.e. does it sting the eyes)?

It works great on everything except waterproof mascara. Very gentle but swipes it all away when you rinse.

answer 2
I use it to remove all my make-up, including a LOT of eye make-up and it works great. It doesn't sting AT ALL. In fact, I probably get product in my eyes a lot because of the way I wash my face and my eyes can be sensitive but this doesn't bother them a bit.

I would not use it as an eye make-up remover. It doesn't really take off mascara and on a regular basis it might be too strong for the eye area.

I use it with my Clarisonic Pro all the time...well, when I'm not too lazy to use the Clarisonic that is. I SHOULD use it all the time but honestly with these Murad cleansers, I feel like the do such an amazing job, I don't feel the need to use my clarisonic as much and I used to. I'm sure you get more benefit using the combo though, and this is a nice, rich, creamy cleanser so it's not drying at all like some products might be if you use them with the clarisonic.

I haven't tried the C cleanser, but I'm trying a sample of the Resurgence. I love it! I have sensitive, combination and recently been victim to serious stress breakouts on my chin and lower cheeks.

You can use "anti-aging" products at any age. The labels are mostly for marketing purposes. Read the label carefully, and if it looks like it has the qualities you want in a product (ie, moisturizing, exfoliating, gentle), it doesn't hurt to give it a try. Remember to try the most gentle option first for whatever skin concern you have - you don't want to aggravate your complexion.

Unless your skin is really dry, I'd try either the clarifying/skin perfecting line from Murad (the blue bottles)--which I just bought for my 27-year-old niece and which she loves--or else the Essential-C line, which I used to use myself in my early thirties and which is great for repairing sun damage. This line is really doing the trick for me now that I'm in my forties, but the moisturizers would have been too heavy for me personally when I was in my early twenties.

I would say it is okay at removing makeup, but you might have trouble if you wear quite a bit of makeup. It probably depends on the nature of your acne--I have fairly rough skin with a bit of surface acne and it's done wonders for that.

I never use a special make-up remove so I expect a lot from my regular cleansers. I just splash my face with water, rub a small dab of this in my hands, then all over my face and eyes and it gets rid of everything. I haven't used it with waterproof mascara though so I don't know how it would do on that.

I have skin similar to yours. There are no beads in it. It is similar in texture to a thick lotion. You dampen your face then put a little bit of this on and massage on. I find I don't need much to get a nice cleanse. It rinses off very well for a lotion.
