❤Murad Redness Therapy Recovery Treatment Gel Review❤

Hi Lovelies!
I have been trying out the Murad Redness Therapy Recovery Treatment Gel for around a month now and thought it was about time I shared my review with you all. I do suffer with mild redness on my face and the main area's are my cheeks and forehead. I decided to try this specific product as I thought that a treatment gel would be good for use especially when my redness flared up a little more than usual. This is my first time using Murad, so I made sure I did my research to learn more about the brand. Dr Murad is classed as being one of the best Dermatologists in America, who graduated from UCLA as a board certified dermatologist. It was actually really interesting researching the Murad brand and I have found some great products that I would love to try in the future. I hope you all enjoy my review and if you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to leave a comment below, or to contact me via my social media buttons.
About the product ?
Reduces redness, irritation, inflammation and sensitivity while strengthening skin to keep it comfortable, as well as providing all day relief. Azelaic acid and vitamin K improve hydration and calm flushed skin, easing tightness. Goji berry extract accelerates the healing of dry, flaky skin and zinc oxide and peppermint leaf extract soothe skin, reducing stinging and sensitivity to improve skin comfort all day. (£49 / 50 ml)

What I like ?
Firstly, I really like the texture of the treatment gel and I found it to always be very cooling and calming on my skin after application. A little goes a very long way and the gel smoothes out and leaves the skin feeling perfected. I would honestly say that this product has helped to calm down my redness, but it hasn't removed it (which i wasn't really expecting it to do). The gel is ideal for sensitive skin, as it has some lovely soothing ingredients which help to keep the skin from getting tight or inflamed.

What I didn't like ?
I was using this product all over my face two times a day, but didn't feel like it was fitting in with my skincare regime. So I decided to start using it only on area's that needed treating, and since changing the way I use it I have found that it has fitted in with my skincare regime a lot better. I also won't use it unless my redness is causing me an issue, which has worked a lot better for me. The only other negative in my opinion is the price, as I find that £50.00 is quite expensive for 50ml. 
Overall ?
Overall, I do feel that this product does actually do quite a lot of what it claims in its product description. It does smooth and soothe the skin, as well as helping to reduce redness. However, from my use I definitely prefer it to treat certain area's opposed to using it as an all over treatment. I do feel that this product is more on the expensive side being just under £50.00, and I also feel that if you were looking for a comprehensive anti regime, then you would be better purchasing the Murad Therapy Regime, as you save money that way. Finally, I always recommend doing vigorous research when it comes to skincare, as my skin will differ to yours. If your not sure on a product always contact the company first, and try and find as many reviews as you can.

I would love to know what you think, would you be interested in trying this product ?
*This product was sent to my for review and my opinions will always remain 100% honest.



  1. This looks like a product I could really do with, but you're right, £50 a pop seems a bit steep :(

    1. Its a lovely product :) and I think that anyone with Redness would really benefit from their devoted regime, as you save money by buying the products together. :) x

  2. I love Murad products - they really get on well with my skin! I haven't tried this one yet and not sure it would really be suitable for me as I don't really have redness - but I will probably check it out if I ever have some spare money that I don't want to spend anywhere else!

    1. Thanks for the comment :) I am looking forward to trying some more products from Murad :)

  3. You should try the Bioderma Sensibio AR (Anti-Redness Cream). I have problems with redness on my cheeks and around my nose and this product has really helped me. It's also A LOT cheaper than Murad and can be used as an all over treatment since it's a moisturizer as well :). Definitely worth checking out!

    1. Oh really :) I might give that a go! thanks xx

  4. I adore Murad skincare and facials as I find their products really suit my skin and their ranges are targeted to certain areas and issues which I love.

    Avene have a really lovely anti-redness range too which you may like x
