I got to try some samples from this brand around last year and that’s how I learnt about this luxury skin care brand Murad. I don’t know if most of you have read about this brand before. Murad is the brainchild of renowned dermatologist Dr. Howard Murad M.D., FAAD.

He has changed how the world sees skincare through his pioneering research and clinical studies into The Science of Cellular Water, now recognized as the world’s most comprehensive approach to understanding health and aging.  Holding 18 patents, Dr. Murad is considered a leading visionary in the fields of skincare and dermatology. He is known as the “Father of Internal Skincare” and has been named an “Industry Visionary” by the International SPA Association and a “Beauty Genius” by Elle magazine.

My Experience with Murad Hybrids Skin Perfecting Primer Dewy Finish:

After trying so many different primer formulations, I wanted to try something with lesser chemicals (especially parabens) and that is how I ended up buying this.  Now, I have used green, purple primers, but this primer was tinted and looked like a foundation. It suits my skin tone but I am not sure whether it would fit other skin tones too.

It’s a lightweight formula of medium consistency which blends within a few seconds. On my good skin days, I prefer to apply just this and no foundation and finish it off with a loose powder. This could be a great product for ladies who are not really fond of wearing foundation everyday.

Each time I use this, I do notice a reduction in the appearance of pores.  It also improves the staying power of my makeup. Also, I like the healthy skin appearance and glow it gives to my skin. However, the glow is courtesy the ultra fine shimmer particles it has, which is barely visible.  I like that the primer has no strong-chemical-ish fragrance at all. The primer which I have is the dewy finish one and it suits my combination skin well. If you have extremely oily skin, you should pick the matte variant in this.

Now, one big reason I like my primers is that they instantly smooth out my face (thanks to the silicones in them), but this is one primer which does not do that. I guess I should not be upset about this as it shows the primer is not really high on silicones, which are ultimately not great for the skin; but if you use primers just for getting that smooth canvas like face, you may not like this.

Overall, it’s a good product and I am greatly satisfied with it.  It is surely one of my favourite primers.

What I Like about Murad Hybrids Skin Perfecting Primer Dewy Finish:

  • Does work on minimising appearance of pores.
  • Improves staying power of makeup.
  • Blends easily, quickly.
  • Oil-free formula.
  • Contains NO Parabens , Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrances , Petrochemicals, Phthalates, GMOs, Triclosan.
  • Feels lightweight on the skin.
  • I just need just about 2 pumps of the product for the full face.
  • Suits my combination-oily, sensitive skin.
  • Has no cheap fragrance/smell.
  • Adds a glow to the face.
  • The light amount of shimmer it has is super fine.
  • Also made up of a few natural ingredients.
  • It is slightly tinted, so if you need light coverage, you can wear this alone and skip foundation.
  • Decent, convenient-to-use packaging.

What I Don’t Like about Murad Hybrids Skin Perfecting Primer Dewy Finish:

  • It is a tinted (similar to foundation) primer and I am not sure whether this would suit all skin tones even though it claims to have adapt-to-skin tone technology.
  • Does not smooth out the skin like most primers.
  • Expensive.
