Correcting Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 15│PA++
Redness correction without flaking
I tried many other redness-correction moisturizers before this one, and the others had a tendency to be thicker and flake when applied (especially the ones that contained SPF ingredients). Murad's goes on in a very sheer manner, and it's typically the only moisturizer I use. It doesn't cover the redness of rosacea too much, so I also use a mineral powder that does the trick.

Made my skin too oily
It was too much moisture for my skin and didn't seem to absorb well. But to be fair I have the most confusing skin in the world so it would work with someone with normal skin.

The moisturizer is very cooling and feels nice to the skin.

Good choice for acne prone, sensitive dry skin
I am always trying new Murad products, and my regimen is spreading across almost every line of products now as I come to know more about individual products, and the in/compatibility between them. I just started using this moisturizer in the day this winter. I was battling severe dryness around my mouth and cheeks especially, and was frustrated that nothing felt soothing enough. Most of my current daily regimen is from the adult acne line. Although fairly hydrating, those products were not enough for dry, windy Wyoming winters. In desperation I turned to this one and was surprised at how cooling it is--the peppermint extract and licorice helps relieve that tight, stingy feeling of dry skin. I haven't been as worried about redness so much as sensitivity/reactivity. I will say this is not a deeply hydrating product. I have come to appreciate it a lot, but I need to wear another moisturizer under it during the day otherwise it doesn't see me through to the PM. I am using another brand right now, but am looking forward to trying this over the Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture and expecting good results. I'm also looking forward to trying it in summer on its on, when my skin is less dry but more prone to flushing from outdoor heat and sun exposure. I can also say that since I only break out occasionally around my mouth and jawline (typical adult acne) this moisturizer does a good job calming the redness if you have sensitive breakouts that tend to dry out and look red longer than they should. Overall, another great Murad product.
