Great Product Amazing SPF Protection 
I usually don't write reviews, but felt compelled to do so about this product. I live in the FL Keys and the sun is brutal down here. I have gotten many sun spots since living here, and have not been able to find a product that is a quality moisturizer AND provides good SPF protection. This product is the one!!! I put this on in the morning, and even when I go to the beach or pool in the afternoon, I still don't get burned or feel like damage has been done to my face from the sun. It's a non-oily formula with a pleasant scent, too! Wish I could give it 10 stars!!!

I am a returning customer 
I began using the Perfecting Day Cream wSPF 30 about 2 years ago. At 60+ (and a recent Nevada transplant - with zero humidity) I realized I needed the extra sun protection and I was pleasantly surprised! My skin is supple, comparatively free of wrinkles for my age and I believe the extra sun protection is helping to discourage brown age spots (I have one - preMurad) that exposure to sun can produce. I normally purchased the less expensive creams that didn't actually work and have found that my tube of Murad lasts for so long - you only need a dime-sized amount for complete face and neck coverage. I will never purchase another brand again. And.......I receive my order I always have it on hand. It is now part of my daily facial regimen. Thank you - Dr. Murad.

Protect and Refine 
I use the sheer luster day moisturizer during the dry winter months, but as soon as the sun returns, I use the perfecting day cream. It gives me greater protection and when I use it, it seems to minimize my pores, making my skin look more refined.

Best Day Moisturizer 
I have never worn a daily moisturizer as I have oily skin, even at 63 years old, but I have been using this product for two years and simply cannot live without it. It has a wonderful scent and even though it is rich and luxurious, it is not heavy so it will not clog your pores, even while wearing makeup. The added ingredient of a sunblock is fabulous as I live in a very warm climate, once less thing to worry about. Thank you Murad.

Outstanding Moisturizer 
I've been using this product for nearly twenty years, along with other Murad products. I receive compliments continually about my beautiful skin. Murad is a great product line. Makeup goes on easily over Perfecting Day Cream. Sunscreen a must.

Q: I currently use Hydro Dynamic should I switch to this day cream? what are the differences between the products?

Know the answer? Answer this question
A: The Perfecting Day Cream SPF 30 is a great option to use for your daytime hydrator. Lecithin helps to lock in moisture and restore suppleness while Evening Primrose, Borage Seed Oil and Essential Fatty Acids enhance moisture retention. Soy Flour protects elasticity. Lost moisture is replenished and irritation is reduced.
