Murad Resurgence Replenishing Multi-Acid Peel

I am a huge fan of Dr Murad and the Murad skincare range and over the past year, I have loved getting to know the brand a little bit more with the Summer Saviours and the Revitalixir Recovery Serum.  New to the Murad family is the Replenishing Multi-Acid Peel which fits into the Resurgence Skincare line.
Murad Resurgence Replenishing Multi-Acid Peel
This Multi-acid Peel is described as being a daily bi-phase peel that accelerates cell renewal by 33% in just 7 days while nourishing skin to prevent dryness and reduce irritation which is all done thanks to its two-phase intensive treatment.  As you might imagine, from Dr Murad, this Multi-Acid peel comes with quite the claims which include:


In 7 days:
  • Accelerates cell renewal by 33%
In 4 weeks:
  • 96% saw smoother texture
  • 88% saw more radiant skin
  • 84% noticed brighter skin and more even tone
  • 84% noticed healthier-looking, more nourished skin
Phase 1 is described as being the one which is comprised of a fortifying blend of complex acids which combine to resurface lacklustre skin. AHA fuses Glycolic and Lactic acid, two gentle exfoliants that work to lift dead skin cells to reveal a smoother skin texture and a brighter, more natural-looking radiance. The BHA then works to calm and cleanse and in doing so, it works to unclog congested pores. Then we have TXA which fights discolouration, promoting a brighter and more even skin tone. Murad state that it is these three components which come together to unite and encourage a supple, younger-looking visage.

Phase 2 sees the use of Holy Basil, an ingredient ive noticed appearing in a few products of late and it is a natural plant-based product which is high in antioxidants. Within this Multi-acid Peel, it is merged with Omega-rich Oils which work to purge and purify while at the same time strengthening the skin’s natural barrier. These two ingredients then come together help to soothe blemishes and revive stressed complexions.

There are a lot of key ingredients within this Multi-Acid Peel which include:

  • AHA (Glycolic, Lactic, and Malic Acid): Builds skin elasticity, hydration level and visible plumpness of the skin to quickly reveal a fresher appearance.
  • BHA (Salicylic Acid): Normalizes cell regeneration and penetrates oil to keep skin clear of pore-clogging.
  • TXA (Tranexamic Acid): A medicinal amino acid long-known in dermatology for its use in treating pigment disorders. Used topically it revives dull skin and evens tone.
  • Apoptogenic Holy Basil Oil: An apoptogenic herb, rich in triterpenes and polyphenols. It help skin resist oxidative stress and irritation while building the skin’s innate defenses and restore balance.
  • Soothing Lipids: Replenishing omega fatty acids, sterols and bisabolol intensely nourish, soothe and refortify the skin barrier.
As you can imagine, this is quite the product to use and my skin has absolutely loved it, more so because I have had one of the worst head and sinus colds ive had in a long long time of late and my skin has felt so dry and dehydrated.

To use this Multi-Acid Peel, the advice is that it should be part of your nighttime skincare routine because of the ingredients.  After shaking the bottle for long enough to mix the ingredients together, as the above pictures show, you then dispense generous amount onto a cotton pad and then sweep over the face, neck, and chest. After doing this, there is no need to rinse and you can continue with your regular skincare routine. The first few times I used this Peel, I did feel a slight tingling sensation on my skin but after a week of using it, the tingle was less and less and Dr Murad do claim it is perfect for daily use.

  1. It sounds like a fabulous product! I know what you mean about skin being extra dry when you have a bad cold - it feels like you've taken all the skin around the nose off from blowing it constantly so this sounds perfect! x


  2. I haven’t really tried anything from Murad but I want to! x

  3. Oh it sounds incredible! Really beautiful product :)
