Murad Perfecting Day Cream SPF 30 Review

The “Perfect” Day Cream, or Just Another Bluff?

Are you looking for a super moisturizer with sunscreen that will protect you from sun damage and even reverse damage that you already have?

If so, Murad claims to have just the product for you: Perfecting Day Cream with SPF 30.

Just because they say it’s perfect for you doesn’t mean that it is though – we all know that!

We’re going to look closely at what’s in their Perfecting Day Cream and by the end of this article, you’ll know whether or not it’ll really help keep you looking young!

What Do They Claim?

Murad claims that their product provides awesome hydration and protection to dry skin. OK, so now we know that it’s probably not going to work for you if you have oily skin.

They also claim that the cream restores suppleness, eases lines, and contains antioxidants that protect you from the free radicals that cause your skin to age.

Now that we know what they claim, let’s take a look at the ingredients to see if they’ve included the “stuff” to back them up.

What’s In It?

A quick look at the ingredients list reveals some really good things. The first few ingredients listed are sunscreens, so those are in there. There’s also hyaluronic acid, which is always good for moisture retention.

Included as promised are antioxidants such as pomegranate extract, green tea extract, grape seed extract, and vitamin E.

There are also herbal extracts such Licorice root, borage seed oil, and primrose oil that help sooth and heal dry, damaged skin by preventing flaking and restoring suppleness. These herbs are also anti-irritants and anti-inflammatories and may help prevent and eliminate hyperpigmentation. Finally, they’re known to reduce the irritation and redness caused by acne, rosacea, and psoriasis.

What’s NOT In It?

This is a big deal for those of you who don’t like a bunch of artificial junk in your creams. This product has no synthetic fragrances or dyes, sulfates, petrochemicals, phthalates, triclosan or GMO’s. There are a couple of parabens in it, but they’re at the bottom of the list.

What Do Users Say?

For the most part, people with dry skin love this product, but people with oily skin say that they can’t use it because it’s too moisturizing. No surprise there considering the ingredients. We really can’t hold this against the product though because it’s specifically marketed to treat dry skin.


Users report these as the best things about this product:

  • Goes on smoothly
  • Works well under makeup if you give it a few minutes to soak in
  • Doesn’t feel heavy
  • Is extremely moisturizing and makes skin feel soft and supple
  • Improves the appearance of sun damage

People with sensitive skin really like this product. A word of caution, though: you may want to try a sample if you’re prone to acne. Even though most people with acne-prone skin used the Perfecting Day Cream without issue, there were a few users who reported breakouts.

Final Words

This product seems to be an awesome deal that does exactly what it claims. It’s not going to make you look years younger or eliminate your wrinkles, but it will protect you from sundamage and possibly free radicals. The moisturizers and healing agents in it will help repair dry, flaky skin and restore a healthy appearance. Not bad for a little dab of lotion!
