I was so nervous to try this product. I tried a primer with SPF 50 years ago that gave me nodular zits and had still a noticeable blemish 6 months later, another brand that I love makes a primer with only SPF 15, and another option was a gel with SPF 30 which won’t hold up my makeup during the day. Finally… Murad comes in and saves the day with an anti-aging broad spectrum skin protector/ makeup primer. It can be worn alone or under makeup and feels so good on the skin. The slight citrus scent dissipates after a few minutes and I didn’t find it to be annoying or too heavy.
During the initial testing I used less than half a pump (without any moisturizer). After a few hours I could feel what I thought was lots of oil breakthrough but to my surprise when I looked in the mirror I didn’t need to blot. It looked how my makeup typically looks with moisturizer and primer after a few hours. The next day I used a full pump and liked the results a lot more. I didn’t get what felt like oil breakthrough and my makeup seemed to hold up longe, granted I had a full 16-hour day. I’m also happy to report that I was able to skip my favorite exfoliator and my skin still felt just as smooth. I also didn’t get any breakouts or irritation.
As much as I love love looooove this product the price point is a little high, it’s around $11 cheaper than high end primers. But one could still justify the price tag by the fact that you would spend nearly the same on a good moisturizer and primer if purchased separately. And if you’re worried about having a ton of product left in the bottle, worry no more. As you dispense product there’s a piece at the bottom that grabs everything as it moves to the pop, also what I like to refer to as push-pop technology.
