Happy Thursday! I promised you one skin care review, featuring a product from Ulta Beauty’s The Glowing Skin Event and today I have for you Murad Environmental Shield Essential C Cleanser. If you remember back in July 2015, before my trip to Cosmoprof, I was introduced to this cleanser during a facial at Massage Envy.
Murad Environmental Shield Essential C Cleanser is an antioxidant-rich cleanser that revitalizes environmentally damaged skin. It’s up for grabs at 50% off today only!
So what is environmentally damaged skin?
Environmentally damaged skin comes as a result of overexposure to the elements, like pollution and the sun. Environmentally damaged skin tends to wrinkle faster, is very dry, has poor tone and firmness, and the skin overall looks in poor health. Unfortunately, wearing sunscreen is not enough to combat environmental damage. Studies show that using anti-oxidant rich products will aid in the fight against skin damage.
Essential C Cleanser is a step one cleanser in the Environmental Shield Collection. This cleanser is colorless, with tiny, yellow beads suspended in the cleanser. Essential C has a watery, gel like texture.
Overall, I like this cleanser. It is not an absolute staple of my skincare routine, but I do use it during the warmer months of the year to cleanse after spending hours in the sun fishing. As a matter of fact, that is the only time I use it heavily. Essential C Cleanser leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed. It is not drying and does not make my skin feel tight.
