[REVIEW] Murad Correct & Protect Serum Broad Spectrum SPF 45

Sun protection is key when it comes to anti-aging prevention. I used to be a make up kind of girl, and i was obssessed with all the shades available in store. But somehow, upon turning 30, i noticed that im more into bare skin, letting the skin breath rather than puting a thick layer to hide that natural beauty. Thus leading to my topic for today in reviewing the Murad Correct & Protect Serum. I know what youre thinking, is it a serum or a sunscreen? Well, surprise its BOTH! Couldnt resist getting the best skincare thats in the market, and we all know that Murad has a really good history when it comes to providing resultful products. 

A little ice breaker on what the product offers, its a satin smooth serum that consists of 100% mineral SPF which has been clinically proven to visibly correct discoloration and prevent future hyperpigmentation. Consider it as a one step reduction where sunscreen is already applied within the serum. I love the fact that its a serum sunscreen because on days when im indoors, we dont really want to waste good make up and take too much effort on applying suncreen. So this makes an amazing alternative when it comes to correcting and protecting the skin, all in one bottle.

Correcting Feature

The serum contains Carotenoid technology which reflects the UV light that offers the skin that instant glow and acts as a powerful antioxidant to brighten and reduce visible discoloration while the beetroot helps to hydrate the skin. In terms of functionality, its pretty good for daily usage to protect while getting reduction in discoloration on the skin. I can't be too sure about pigmentations, but I would say that it does leave a natural glow over the skin after application

Protecting Feature

Now, I don't think I need to elaborate much on the protecting side, but other than keeping that harsh UV ray away from the skin, it actually offers a broad-spectrum, mineral UV protection that doesn't leave a white cast to offer that natural-looking radiant skin. It has also been clinically tested on Fitzpatrick skin types 1 to 6 as well. So, basically its pretty much the best sunscreen that youre ever need to apply over the skin. 


In terms of texture, i would have to say that it has a translucent whitish ampoule texture, but as you glide it over your skin, you'd be surprised on how lightweight it is as a sunscreen. Feels like serum, but offers the benefits of sunscreen. Hands down, by far the best 2-in-1 innovation by Murad. I personally enjoy this alot because im going to admit that im very busy, and not going to lie, i may have skipped sunscreen on some days because i dont entirely enjoy the texture. But now with Murad's Correct & Protect, i won't have to worry about sunscreen because its already incorporated into my serum. It's fast absorbing, moisturizing and it keeps the skin hydrated throughout the day pretty well. 

How to use

Just like any other serum, first you cleanse the skin, followed by the toning step. Then just apply your favourite serum and moisturizer, and finally shake the Murad Correct & Protect Serum Broad Spectrum SPF 45 and. apply it over face, neck and chest. But psst, on days that im ultimately lazy, after cleansing and toner, i would just apply this over my skin and im good to go!


As a verdict, i would share that its really perfect for those with balanced, oily, combination, dry and sensitive skin and in my case, its not too oily over my combination skin, which i love. If you're looking for a lightweight sunscreen, this would highly be recommended by me. It comes with a hefty price tag, but for the innovation of a serum like a sunscreen, i wouldn't say any other brand would be able to replicate this formula. It's priced at RM358 for a 30ml bottle and can get it from Murad's official website. Do check out the official website below for more info on the product.
