If there's one thing I've learned over the years as a budget savvy gal, it's that some things are worth splurging on. One of the things on my splurge-worthy list? Good skincare products. After all, the skin we're in is with us for life, so you want to take good care of it.
Personally, I suffered from Acne for much of my life. I actually went on Accutane back when I was planning my wedding to try to tackle the issue head-on. Up until then I had resorted to Photoshopping all my facebook photos to avoid embarrassment — and this was in the days before Facetune! ? The medication definitely helped out, and my skin has been forever changed for the better, but I'd be lying if I said that I don't still have the occasional breakout or pimple pop up.
As y'all know, I'm a product review junkie, so I've tried a little bit of everything when it comes to skincare regimens. When I'm pinching pennies, I've got some go-to drugstore beauty brands that I trust, but over the years I've found a few fabulous products / brands that I'll gladly pull out my wallet for, and one of those is Murad.
Taking care of your skin leading up to the wedding day should be a high priority, and making the investment in products that effectively nourish and protect your face tops the list! A few of the Murad products I've tried out are these bestsellers:
This stuff is kinda magical. It not only firms, brightens, and hydrates the eye area but it's also helping me keep the crow's feet at bay. Plus, this anti-aging product even helps to fade dark circles. As an over-30 gal, I am happy to have the extra help in the eye area.
This moisturizer is probably my favorite I've ever used. It's lightweight but effective, and smells so nice. I use it morning and night and it helps to nourish my skin and keep it moisturized!
This stuff has incredible reviews by beauty bloggers and Murad.com customers alike… not only does it smooth out the texture of your skin to make it look flawless, but it also contains SPF to protect it all day. It creates a perfect base for your makeup to help it last all day, so it's great for your wedding, too. I love wearing this even on “no makeup” days to make my skin look smoother– I'm a huge fan!
Thanks to Murad for letting me try out a few of your fab products! I'm a believer 🙂 And since I'm an adult that's still struggling with breakouts, I'm also planning to order this handy kit:Anti-Aging Acne Starter Kit
