Murad Revitalixir Recovery Serum

Murad Revitalixir Recovery Serum is one of those products that you didn't know you would love so much until you tried it. I have reached the bottom of my tube and my skin has absolutely loved it, plus it has quite the unique look.
Murad Revitalixir Recovery Serum
We all suffer from stress and this Revitalixir Recovery Serum is a cannabis-infused serum which has been designed to address stress-induced ageing on the face and around the eyes. When we are stressed, our skin shows signs of being stressed and you might notice the changes in your skin such as:
  • Dryness and dehydration - said to be caused by Cortisol, which reduces the skins ability to hold water
  • Wrinkles - Including expression lines which are enhanced by dehydration
  • Dullness - this stems from slowed cell renewal and dead skin cell build-up
  • Eye Puffiness - caused by the retention of blood and fluid around the eyes
  • Dark Circles - become more prominent when thinner skin enhances the visibility of poor blood circulation.
So for those of us who have any of these issues, has skin which has been exposed to environmental aggressors or for those of us who are getting over an illness, we often find our skin is not at its best.
“Cultural Stress™ is the unnecessary man-made stress we put on ourselves in our attempt to live up to everyone’s expectations. Our hyper-connected, fast-paced society triggers a constant flood of damaging stress hormones, like cortisol, that fatigue our bodies and could show in our skin as dehydration, sallowness, roughness and deep expression lines. The best way to manage stress is through balance, and I formulated Revitalixir Recovery Serum for face and eyes with a balancing blend of relaxing and reviving extracts to help manage the visible effects of stress, minimise skin fatigue and renew vibrancy in an instant and over time.” – Howard Murad, M.D., FAAD
Revitalixir is an oil-based sphere infused serum which is a water-based gel described as having a unique delivery system which holds advanced ingredients to provide the perfect blend to relax and revive the skin - this comes from using the spheres to relax the skin and the gel to revive it. By delivering the ingredients in this way and separating them out, Murad has managed to eliminate the use of binders within the product which means the formula is not only more concentrated but it also ensures the active ingredients are delivered more effectively.

The ingredients within Revitalixir are split into two groups - the Sphere which relaxes the visible signs of stress on the skin and the Outer Gel which revives and renews vibrancy.  So within the Sphere, we have:
  • Hemp Seed oil (Cannabis) - a vegan source of Omega 3, 6 and 9 which helps to soothe and nourish the skin, relieve it of dryness and visibly minimise wrinkles
  • Paracress Extract - this flowering herb helps to quickly smooth skin, improve firmness and deliver a measurable, visible reduction in wrinkles after one use.
  • Hyaluronic Acid - holds more water than any other molecule in the body and is necessary to keep collagen hydrated and youthful.
Within the Outer Gel you will find four main ingredients which are:
  • Wild Indigo - a flowering plant which is used in Ayurveda and is one which quickly calms the skins stress signals. It also helps to visibly reduce under-eye circles and improve the skins tone and luminosity.
  • Neuropeptide - described as being a unique anti-ageing peptide specifically designed to address visible skin wrinkling caused by repetitive facial expressions.
  • Caffeine - helps to combat the appearance of fatigue and stress on the skin, including under-eye puffiness, dullness and loss of tone.
  • Niacinamide - also known as vitamin B3, it helps to refine the skin's texture, increase radiance and boost cell turnover.  It also helps to promote a clearer, more even skin tone.
To use, you apply onto freshly cleansed skin both morning and evening and you only need one pump of the serum because a lot goes a long way and I find that with the one pump, I can massage the serum onto my face, neck and chest and have enough left to pat around my eye area too.

This serum has a really lightweight gel texture to it and once on the skin, it absorbs really quickly, giving you just enough time to pat and massage it on.  It has a really nice pearlescent tint which softly illuminates the skin without leaving you looking as though your skin is really greasy.  I have found that after using, my skin feels incredibly refreshed, supple and most importantly calm.  When I am stressed or feeling run down, I often find my skin reacts with redness to the cheeks, feeling flushed and incredibly dry to the touch, using this serum I am able to help alleviate those issues to quite the degree and I love that my skin feels better for using it.

This serum is £70 here from Murad and it t suits all skins types.
