The age-old question in skincare (pun intended) is, “how can I look younger than my real age?”
While aging is an inevitable process, it is possible to “age gracefully” like a fine wine. ????
That’s where Murad Replenishing Multi-Acid Peel comes in. It’s a powerful chemical peel designed to target common signs of aging like dullness, wrinkles & fine lines, and age spots.
It uses multiple acids to promote a wide range of exfoliation in the epidermis and upper dermis to remove dead skin cells and increase cell turnover, resulting in brighter and tighter skin.
It also softens rough skin texture and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
The key ingredients include:
- AHA Blend: mainly Glycolic Acid along with Lactic Acid and Malic Acid. AHAs are water-soluble and help remove surface dullness to reveal brighter and smoother skin.
- BHA: Salicylic Acid, a beta hydroxy acid, is oil-soluble and is incredibly effective at penetrating the oils in our pores to provide deeper exfoliation and open up clogged pores.
- TXA: Tranexamic Acid is used in dermatology to address skin discoloration such as melasma (source: SkinCeuticals and BioMed Research International, 2018)
Antioxidants such as Holy Basil, Chamomile Extract, Vitamin E, and Turmeric are also included to prevent free radical damage (a process that causes cell damage over time).
Finally, customer reviews have been quite positive, with some saying it helped reduce pore sizes and acne scars, and saw brighter and smoother skin. Others said it left behind an oily film and may even block pores due to the third ingredient on the list (C13-16 Isoparaffin).
My Verdict: Murad Replenishing Multi-Acid Peel combines AHAs, BHA, and TXA to fight signs of aging, like wrinkles, fine lines, and sun damage, so you can “age gracefully” with confidence.
