My favorite Murad product! 
I have been using this for several years and absolutely love it! Yes, it is expensive, but is so worth it. A jar usually lasts about 3 months. I tried not using it for a while and immediately noticed a difference. It makes my face feel silky smooth and on the days I choose to wear make-up, it glides on and I find I use less. When I had a facial, I was told that whatever I was doing was working and to keep it up! Thank you Murad.

Essential-C Renewal Complex Rocks 
The Houston summer sun and daily pollution were brutal and prematurely aging my skin. I asked my hair dresser how she managed to look so young in this environment and she introduced me to Murad products. I have been using the Environmental Shield regimen for 25 years now and have fabulous skin and a youthful face. I was thirty something when I fell in love with the Essential-C Renewal Complex. It really is essential to maintaining great skin! Now, when anyone asks me what my secret to looking great is, I tell them Murad.

This product delivers big results immediately. 
I received Essential-C Daily Renewal Complex as a free sample with my order. I tried it and have been hooked since. I immediately felt the difference in the texture of my skin. My old dark acne spots are gone and my complexion is soft and smooth. I never wear foundation anymore, my face looks great without it. Thank you Murad!!!

Unbelieveable Results 
I received a sample of this product and fell in love with it after the very first use. The essential-c daily renewal complex improved the textureappearance of my face after the first use. I'll admit I was a little shocked at the cost but still didn't hesitate to purchase and I have not regretted it. Any fine lines that I saw are gone and I even have a glow. Who knew it could be so easy to reverse the aging process.

Q: Sensitive Skin

Know the answer? Answer this question
A: The Essential C Daily Renewal Complex is appropriate for those with dry skin and given that you can tolerate the Intensive C Radiance Peel, it is likely you will not have an issue. Given that you are sensitive however we do recommend that you perform a patch test prior to using all over your face. Apply the product sparingly to 1 or 2 small affected areas during the first 3 days of use. If no discomfort occurs, follow directions as stated on the label.
