Murad City Skin Overnight Detox Moisturizer & EYES UP

Have you ever thought about how much you sit in front of  or look at a screen ? I have in the context of it working my eyes really hard  and causing strain but never my skin.

Murad's new Eyes Up campaign aims to make us aware that all that screen time can be harder on our skin too due to stress and possible blue light emissions. Now the light part you need to research. I've done some reading online and  new monitors seem to be ok but old ones ,maybe not.   Phone screens? I don't know . It's a very interesting topic to be sure .  Murad wants to get people to make an effort to look up from those screens more often. Give your eyes a rest and get some real people interaction, something I fully agree with.

The brand's new City Skin Overnight Detox Moisturizer is launched in coordination with the campaign and is full of anti-agers and antioxidants to help de- stress skin while you sleep. And it's a good one.

This is one of those rare creams that works super fast. My skin looked plumper, smoother and well moisturized the morning after using it. I was impressed.

The cream is fairly thick and it has shea butter so it provides plenty of moisture but it doesn't feel heavy nor did my skin feel greasy, something I worry about as my skin isn't super dry but normal to oily and can break out if something is too heavy.

 It has concentrated  Vitamin C for brightening, Marrubium Plant Stem Cells for antioxidant protection and they are also said to neutralize toxins. Botanicals of sunflower, cucumber and barley are in there for moisture. line reduction and smoothing.

I like that the container is a push plate jar which keeps the cream from any light meaning the vitamin C which is very volatile in light will stay stabilized and active in the jar far better than an open type container.

If you are looking for a new cream to jump start Spring skincare, this is a great pick .
