[GIVEAWAY + REVIEW] Your all in one Youth Skincare | Retinol Youth Renewal Range by Murad

Retinol Youth Renewal Range by Murad
A few weeks back, I attended an exclusive event organized by Murad where I had a cozy casual session to get an insight on their Retinol Youth Renewal Range with the Murad Team. Now, Murad is no stranger to the beauty industry as they have created a reputation of their own by creating specific ranges to suit different types of skin conditions with products that can be used based on the skin's needed diet. In short, Murad provides a complete range of skincare to fulfill your skin's need, be it if your skin is too dry and oily, acne issues and even products to reduce wrinkles. And today, I'll be sharing with you about the Retinol Youth Renewal skincare Range by Murad.

What is Retinol?

What the Retinol structure looks like
You might wonder what is this ingredient called Retinol, and you're lucky cause here's a brief description of it! Based on tons of research, retinol is a technical name for vitamin A that accelerates skin-renewal and reduce wrinkles, lines and age spots. And believe me, most products out there can prevent wrinkles from getting worst, but how many brands out there can reduce your wrinkles visibly? Retinol is a highly-reactive molecule that can break down and lose its potency as soon as it is exposed to sunlight or air, making it an active ingredient that your skin would absolutely love!

Retinol Youth Renewal Range

Unboxed the Retinol Youth Renewal Range
The Retinol Youth Renewal Range features 3 products namely the Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Serum, the Retinol Youth Renewal Serum and the Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream. The range claims to be the ideal regimen for quicker, visible, and sustained results. (Like, don't we all want results that sustain?) What makes the product unique is that its gentle yet effective with its Retinol Tri-Active Technology which targets frustrating signs of aging which includes wrinkles, loss of firmness, crow's feet (laugh lines) and rough texture. No matter what your age is, the Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Range will ensure that you get a revitalizing boost from this Retinol power trio.

Based on real statistics: 93% saw reduction in lines and wrinkles | 87% noticed firmer eye area skin

Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Serum

Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Serum
First up would be a little introduction of the Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Serum. It functions to minimize the look of wrinkles and crow's feet while providing the skin with nutrients rich in Marine Kelp Complex to lift, firm and visibly brighten dark circles. And surprisingly it also claims to give you visible results in just 1 week. Too good to be true? I did a 3-week review on this to reassure you on the results, and surprisingly results did show after 1 week. What's even better was that it really made my eye looks way way younger as you continue using it. Looking for dramatic improvement around the eye area? This is your one-stop solution!

Creamy lightweight texture
I personally like applying it using my ring finger so that the pressure it gentle around the area when applying serum.
It would be best to use this just before you sleep after cleansing and after applying toner, gently pat Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Cream around the eye area. I personally like to make sure that when applying, I'll likely pat until its fully absorbed by the skin around the eyes. The texture feels very lightweight, and it really cools the eye area ensuring that my eye bags in specific would disappear by the time I wake up the next day. This serum helps to reduce line's, wrinkles, dark circles and loss of firmness making it the perfect solution to regain back your youthful eyes dramatically. Tested and proven to me personally.

Retinol Youth Renewal Serum

After applying the Retinol Youth Eye Serum, its time to give the rest of your face a little more attention. The Retinol Youth Renewal Serum is powered by a Retinol Tri-Active Technology which contains a fast-acting Retinoid, a time-released Retinol, and a Retinol booster. Highly active, with a gentle formula that would visibly minimize lines and deep wrinkles by firming and evens out skin tone. It claims to boosts radiance for more vibrant, youthful-looking skin, and I couldn't agree with the statement more. After my 3 week journey with the range, I noticed that my face glows and my skin tone is more even after looking at a comparison photo that left me in shock (refer to image at the end of this post). I am indeed impressed with this serum! I was told that with the Tri-Active Technology, the retinol content is smart enough to detect specific parts of the skin that needs a boost in nutrients.

Stronger creamy texture
Apply around face and neck area
Because the range comes at a hefty price, I personally use this only at night for maximum results. After cleansing, applying toner and eye serum, I'll apply a thin layer of the Retinol Youth renewal Serum to my face and neck and gently pat the skin until the serum has been absorbed completely. Unlike most serum's, the Retinol Youth Renewal Serum is slightly different as it has a more creamy moisturizing texture compared to the traditional transparent serum. It may look a little thick, but surprisingly after spreading it out on my skin, my skin seems to love it a lot! It doesn't leave any greasy feeling, it's definitely moisturizing and lightweight that I dare to say that this is my ultimate favorite serum of all time!

Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream

Retrinol Youth Renewal Night Cream
And to complete the skin regime, this is an overnight skin savior, the Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream. The Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream activates youth while you sleep. Powered by the Retino Tri-Active Technology as well, it delivers transformative results to minimize lines, wrinkles by smoothing out the texture of the skin. Rich with rich Algae Extract, it helps to improve firmness and elasticity to restore youthful contours. It intensely nourishes overnight that made me look forward to waking up each morning. #nokidding. Trust me, from the first night I laid my hands on this up till today, my skin is addicted to this luxurious cream.

Very moisturizing  texture, perfect solution to lock the serum in
Apply around face and neck
The Retinol Renewal Night Cream is 'the' solution to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, loss of firmness, reduce rough texture, and dryness just overnight, making it my favorite night cream of all time! Just before I end my skin regime, this night cream would be the last cream I apply just before heading off to bed. Because it's extra strong in moisturizing, I personally use this once every two nights because the results are that good! You don't even need to use this every night to see results, so I am loving it! I love the dispenser bottle which constantly excretes a precise amount each time I use this. Again, just a gentle reminder that I like to use this on my face, neck, and chest in an upward movement.


What do i have to say about the Range? 
Here's a before and after shot after 3 weeks of using the Retinol Youth Renewal Range.
As a verdict, I honestly think that the range is amazing and you'll definitely get the results that you are seeking with the Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Range. The range is suitable to be used at as young as in your early twenties, or if its a gift for your grandparents, they would be more than happy to regain their facial youth with these amazing products. I am not exaggerating when it comes to the results for this as I'll give all the stars in the sky for the result it gave me. I was sick and on flu last week that my nose area got a little dry due to all the sneezing, and the minute I applied the night cream over it, my skin was instantly back to normal the next day! Usually, it would still have traces of dryness despite using cream, but with Murad, I'll drop the mike on the ground and you'll have to try this for yourself to really understand how amazing the product is. It's luxurious, it gives results, and its comfortable on the skin, the 3 main things I look for in skincare. What else is there really to say? Looking for a youth-restoring skincare? Just get the Retinol Youth Renewal Range and I can guarantee that you'll have no regrets!
