As a newly licensed esthetician I’ve performed many treatments on my skin. While in beauty school we were required to experiment with multiple products and procedures. Often times, the mixed messages I was sending my skin left it in a state of confusion—sometimes oily, sometimes dry.
My current concern is controlling excess oiliness, so I have been using the Murad Vitalic Regimen. This lightly scented skin care trio consists of Energizing Pomegranate Cleanser, T-Zone Pore Refining Gel, Energizing Pomegranate Moisturizer SPF 15. This skin care set used as daily maintenance and protection claims to keep skin strong, healthy and vital.
What I like about Murad’s Vitalic Regimen is that it works fast and it smells yummy. The signature scent, pomegranate, reminds me of watermelon flavored Jolly Rancher chews!
Here is the claim for Murad Vitalic Regimen:
Daily maintenance and protection keeps normal/combination skin strong, healthy and vital.
Cleanse | Tone
Energizing Pomegranate Cleanser, 5.1 FL. OZ.
Dual-action foam cleanses and tones in just one step. Washes away dirt and impurities and revitalizes tired skin.
Treat | Repair
T-Zone Pore Refining Gel, 2.0 FL. OZ.
This advanced balancing treatment helps normalize oil production so skin looks and feels soft, not slick. Glycolic and Salicylic Acids encourage cell turnover for a refined complexion.
Hydrate | Protect
Energizing Pomegranate Moisturizer SPF 15, 2.0 FL. OZ.
Lightweight moisturizer stimulates and shields skin by infusing energy and providing essential oil-free, hydration.
Energizing Pomegranate Dual Action Cleanser works double-duty as cleanser and toner. I liked this cleanser liquid to foam formula cleanser as it left my skin visibly "squeaky" clean. My skin also felt tight and toned after cleansing.
Vitalic T-Zone Pore Refining Gel lives up to its claim—my oily zones are shine-free with oil under control.
Energizing Pomegranate Moisturizer SPF 15 provided light protection throughout the day, without my skin feeling over-moisturized.
Murad’s Vital C Regimen lived up to its guarantee of tightening and firming—it was like a mini face lift regimen.
The down side is that my skin felt too dry. However, my pores definitely appear tightened and minimized.
Unfortunately, I experienced some burning with this product line, no doubt to an allergic reaction to an ingredient.
I would recommend this line for someone who has extremely oily skin with enlarged pores. I'm sure they would find it beneficial.
Pros: Definitely tightens and firms, leaves pores with the appearance of being diminished.
