Body Firming Cream
Worth the price!
I balked at the price of this at first, but once I used it I WAS HOOKED! I love this cream. It works! It actually really works!! I watch my skin go from so-so to va-va-va-voom in about 10 minutes, and it boosts my confidence and makes me feel like I can do anything. It also smells really good, but doesn't compete with other frangrances. Oh, and it has lasted me forever. A little goes a long way. This cream works in the short-term by giving you firm and really soft skin in the time stated, and it works in the long-term by motivating you to eat right and exercise so that your skin can stay that way! I love it, my husband loves it, and I will use it until Dr. Murad makes something even better....though I don't think that's possible.

Love the way it smells!
I received a small tube of this cream in a special winter skin care package, so haven't used it for very long, but it is very rich, absorbs quickly into my skin and is not greasy. It also smells wonderful with a light lemony scent! It is a bit pricey, but I'll pay that much just to get something with a fragrance I like!

This product is so hydrating!
I just purchased this product and I love it already! My skin is usually so dry and itchy in the winter; this cream is amazingly hydrating. I have not noticed more firmness yet, but my skin feels more soft and supple.

Wish I could afford to keep using!
I get miserable dry itchy skin all over my body in winter at 7000+ feet elevation and literally nothing helps sometimes. I have had some success with body oils, like sesame oil, but when my skin is extra sensitive even applying an all natural oil to my skin during the driest months makes it react somewhat with tiny little pink surface bumps. Every drugstore brand lotion I've tried does virtually nothing once it has semi-settled in my skin, which I find is quickly dehydrated again. I go to bed some nights twitching from how much I'm itching and a lot of lotions I've tried even worsen the problem by requiring too much work to apply to the skin--they feel like they're sitting on my skin rather than going into it, even though I moisturize after every shower.
This moisturizer is really the only one I've found so far that goes on smooth with no effort and sinks right into my skin. The texture is amazing, the smell is wonderful, and you just feel the difference right away. A little of it does go a long way but I still need a decent amount and sometimes after moisturizing in the morning after showering, I still need more before bed. I only got to use one bottle of this stuff and didn't use it as much or as frequently as I craved it because I was trying to save it. Unfortunately, it is so expensive I don't know if I'm going to be buying it again. $30 feels like my cutoff for a body lotion and this isn't all that big of a container either. We'll see... it would be great if they made bigger bottles of this for the same price--it does seem a bit steep, and I'm a loyal Murad customer for the majority of my face care products as well.
