Resurgence and Glow – At 50, It’s All About the Glow

Murad Resurgence

Murad Resurgence

Mirror, mirror, on the wall…whose the fairest of them all? Once you hit 50 (or even 40) that can be a really frightening question to ask of a mirror. Of course, we all work hard, work out, dye our hair, but those nasty little wrinkles and crinkly creases under your eyes can get even the best of us and start to make us feel frustrated that we are not staying ahead of the aging process. Of course, at some point, that might be inevitable, but for me I am feeling like that’s not going to hit me until, like, 75 or 80….so in the meantime I am always on the quest for anything that will make me look – and hence feel – younger.

They say that 50 is the new 40 anyway, so why not try to look the part, right?

Late one night I saw the infomercial on television for Dr. Murad’s new Resurgence product line. I have to say, the ad was compelling and Joan Lunden, the spokesperson for the product, looked pretty amazing at 61 and I thought – well, I would love to try that product. I had always been a big believer of Dr. Murad in the past, and the products were cutting edge and way ahead of the curve back in those days.

So – yes – I got bitten by the late night infomercial and thought – I’ve got to have it!

The package came in no time and was a tidy little kit with more than enough for a one month’s supply (which is what you sign up for) of four products – the Renewing Cleansing Cream, Age-diffusing Serum, the Age-Balancing Night Cream and then the Renewing Eye Cream. This kit is for rebalancing aging skin over night, so be aware that you still have to purchase a daytime moisturizer, and I would recommend saying with the same line (Dr. Murad) for that. So, when I received the kit it took me a few days to realize that I didn’t have that step 3 moisturizer, so I did end up using one of my own for the daily.

However, it’s only been a week and I can already start to see that my face seems to have brightened up a bit. The Renewing Cleansing Cream contains Apricot Kernel Oil, Yeast Amino Acids, Carrageenan Extract, Camomille Flower Extract, and many more herbs and ingredients. I believe that the cleanser is the key to this whole package. When you use it on your face, you can actually feel it’s ‘action’ going on and there is tingling for quite a while after you use it. According to Dr. Murad, it’s important to use products that help to remove the outer layer of the skin, and to help you rebuild your skin so that you have that healthy glow. I do recommend this product. I feel better and my skin is brighter. The eye cream, age diffusing cream and the age-balancing night cream feel to me a lot like Dr. Murad’s other wonderful products – and they contain many other flower, root and natural ingredients to actively renew your skin.

This product – according to the ads and write-ups – as well as the 384 plus five star reviews on their website — reduces the appearance of medium to deep wrinkles. Increases skin firmness 42% in 10 minutes. Now, I do feel that you need a few weeks to see the full benefits. But for only $39.95 for a month’s supply (a $107.00 value) it’s worth it! Try the other Dr. Murad’s products as well – because you will get more benefit by staying with one product line!
