Beauty Trend: Brightening Skincare + A Giveaway!

As I get older my skin concerns are definitely changing. I've gone from worrying only about breakouts and oily skin to also being concerned about the tone and brightness of my skin as well. Years ago I never would have thought I'd worry about 'dull' skin but lately, I feel like unless I'm totally on top of my skincare regime, I need a little extra oomph to get some glow back.

When I heard that Murad had a new line out specifically targeted at skin brightening I knew I needed to try it. Plus you know it's going to be good as it's a huge skincare trend in Korea. I don't know about you but any time I hear about the next biggest thing in skincare, it's always 'big in Korea'. They seem to know what's up when it comes to skincare! So thankfully Murad has made getting glowing luminous skin attainable and my skin is loving it! Here’s what it’s all about...

Step One: Cleansing Cream

A rich, gentle foaming cleanser that purifies and restores skin, utilizing a nourishing blend of Omega-6 Essential Lipids and Jojoba-derived Esters to enhance moisture retention, imparting skin with a silky, smooth texture.

Step Two: Luminous Essence

A quick absorbing, lightweight formula featuring an extract of electrolyte-rich Kunai Root to deliver essential hydration deep into the skin. Red Algae and Indian Fig Extracts gently exfoliate, restoring youthful texture and luminosity and priming the skin for optimized penetration of subsequent treatment products.

Step Three: Porcelain Serum

A powerful, high-potency serum that enhances skin’s translucence, formulated with four brightening technologies that leave the skin with a luminous glow; Porcelain Flower Extract evens and illuminates skin tone, Green Tea Extract helps promote skin’s brightness and firmness, and Hexylresorcinol and Hexapeptide-2 work together to deliver a visibly radiant and translucent complexion.

Step Four: Luminous Shield SPF 50

An ultra-lightweight UV lotion that protects skin’s rosy glow utilizing antioxidant-rich Grape Seed Extract to neutralize environmental aggressors and preserve skin’s brightness while light-diffusing microspheres fill in lines and wrinkles, making them appear less visible upon application


Because I'm loving this regime so far, I want to offer you the chance to win my favourite products, the Luminous Essence and The Luminous Shield. And with summer around the corner, a little SPF 50 is definitely going to come in handy! For details and to enter, head to the Murad Canada website here. Good luck! XO
