Murad Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30 – Review

So, let’s talk about Murad Essential-C Day Moisture SPF 30 – the newest sunscreen lotion I’ve been testing out. I wanted to dig deep into this product to see if it lives up to the hype and, of course, share what I found with you.

According to Murad, “the Essential-C Day Moisture SPF 30 is our antioxidant-rich SPF moisturizer that shields, helps reveal radiance and protects from UV damage as it revitalizes environmentally-stressed skin”.

Packaging: The packaging of Murad Essential-C Day Moisture is clean and practical. The pops of orange make it look pretty cool on the skincare shelf.

Formula: The heart of any moisturizer is its formula, and Murad doesn’t disappoint. Enriched with antioxidants, including the potent Vitamin C, it promises a shield against environmental stressors. The SPF 30 broad-spectrum protection is a commendable addition, promising defense against both UVA and UVB rays.

How to Apply: Using it is a breeze. After washing your face, a little goes a long way. The texture is light, spreads easily, and doesn’t leave you feeling sticky. Perfect for that crucial step in your morning routine when sun protection is a must.

  • Sun Protection: The SPF 30 offers robust protection against both UVA and UVB rays.
  • Antioxidant Boost: Loaded with Vitamin C, it contributes to the skin’s defense against free radicals.
  • Lightweight Texture: The formula is light, ensuring comfortable wear throughout the day.
  • Hydration: Strikes a balance by deeply hydrating the skin without feeling heavy.
  • Makeup Compatibility: Its velvety finish makes it an ideal base for makeup application.

    • Price Tag: It’s a bit on the pricey side, which might be a factor.
    • Availability: Depending on where you are, finding it might be a bit of a hunt.

    So, wrapping it up – Murad Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is a solid pick if you’re all about sun protection and antioxidants. I really like the citrusy scent. The packaging is smart, the formula does its job, but yes, it might dig into your wallet a bit. Still, if you’re after a reliable daily moisturizer that’s got your back against the sun, it’s worth considering.

    Got this 0.8oz tube in the Sephora Sun Safety Kit I bought earlier in the year. However, it is available on Murad’s website, at major beauty retailers, and select department stores. The price ranges around $35-$68 depending on the size.
