This is actually one of my very first purchases from EDS. I will be completely honest with you all and say right up front that I bought this product 100% because of how it looked Smile It comes in a 15mL see-through pump pack and the product is a swirl of pink gel and white cream - it looks like a candy cane! Basically, it looks really cute and I'm a sucker for packaging; my personality twisted my arm into buying this Very Happy

Anyways, this is a serum/treatment that you're supposed to use once a day (in the morning) under your moisturiser. It contains pomegranate which is supposed to be a powerful antioxidant. I think that's contained in the gel, the cream is a illuminating cream to add some 'glow' to your skin. As you pump the product out the gel and the cream mix so you're applying both.

I used this a few times when I got it but I was really disappointed because I just kept getting the gel (which by itself I found too sticky). So I figured that the stuff LOOKED good but it was going to alternate giving me cream or gel. I wasn't impressed so I put this aside. I was going to give it a rather less-than-positive review but I decided to try it again. I'm really glad I did.

It turns out that at the begining you get quite a few pumps of just gel (well, I did anyway) but afterwards the two products mix evenly. I've been using this for over a week and I'm really liking it. I don't know if it adds 'glow' to my skin but I've been really stressed lately yet apparently I look 'rested'. I think it might be the pomegranate treatment unless of course I'm some rare freak of nature who thrives on stress!! Smile

This stuff costs CAD$39 on EDS. I'm not quite sure how long it will last but I need one and a half pumps for my face in the morning. I think it's well worth a try PLUS it looks really cute in your bathroom :P

Has anybody tried other Murad products? So far I have only tried this and the Essential-C Eye cream and I quite like both of them.

I haven't tried Murad before, but anything with your OK, is a must-try for me Wink

I have to say, the Pomegranate ingredient sure is eye-catching. I haven't even tried the fruit before!

I think our skins have similar 'tastes' Smile Most of the stuff you write about gets placed on my good old (and growing!) wishlist or I'm using the stuff already! I think I'll give the Dermalogica scrub a miss though. I'm not putting aside my PTR buffing beads and Microfoliant for anything unless it's (a) minty or (b) brilliant (preferably both Smile). Very Happy

Y'know it's funny, because of our earlier 'drink water' discussion, everytime I see 'Sable' written on this forum I remember to drink water. I saw your post a few days ago and thought 'good to see she's back. now gotta go drink some water'. Weird huh! Smile LOL
