Now called Night Reform Glycolic Treatment. Please make sure that the product you are using is not expired (check the bottom of the bottle with 4-letter/number combo, the if it says example jk7o, it means its made on 2007, and its expired since this only has 3yr shelf life, basically , if your bottle says Night reform then its expired, coz they stopped making them in 2008 according to the cs @ Murad) Anyway, back to my review, I tried the night reform (old) and it broke me out, until I called the cs at murad and was informed that this product is expired and look for the one with Glycolic word on it. So I sent it back to Sephora, and got the new one, been using it for a month or so and my face is AWESOME. Its smooth, even-toned, glowy, soft, etc... Its excellent with the perfecting night cream and the perfecting serum. It will sting a bit, but it will subside after a minute or two. I'm not turning back. I'll be loyal to these 3 products as long as it's working for me.
As expensive as this stuff is, even on eBay, I can't find a better replacement for my skin. Alpha Hydrox was a longtime favorite until I found out the company tests its stuff on animals. Tried the Walgreens AHA cream, the Neutrogena, and whatever else was on the shelves.
Plumps to smooth out the fine lines, clears up the horrible zits and cysts on my chin and leaves a glow the next morning.
This product is a really good AHA lotion. It does have a smell to it, but i don't think its actually an additive fragrance which is good for my sensitive skin. I actually wear this during the day under my makeup. it makes my skin so smooth and soft and i LOVE it! I sometimes wear it at night as well, but i prefer Neostrata Ultra Smoothing Cream as I like wearing more of a cream at night that i don't necessarily have to wear moisturizer over the top of.
UPDATE: I tried the Peter Thomas Roth 10% Glycolic moisturizer and I prefer this to the Murad one.
I have used this 3 nights in a row. i didnt see any change until the 3rd day, and not a good change at that!! I got a rash on my lower left cheek, along the border where I spread the night reform as well as on the upper right above my eyebrow. NO idea what happened, because I do not have sensitive skin in the LEAST, but I got these pimple-like bumps that itched like crazy. I decided to go gentle on those areas on the 4th night and i used cellex-c gentle cleansing milk, night and morning in addition to not applying the night reform. Almost immediately the bumps were soothed and smoothed back to normal. I don't know what to do about the night reform, I'll try it eventually, but kind of scared me. Maybe every other night? I'll update later...
I'm not really sure what this is supposed to be doing for me. I like it, don't get me wrong, but I'm not seeing a marked difference of any kind. Help?
I guess I'll use it more consistently and see how it goes. But it goes on smooth and I wake up with nice-ish skin (it's not like it visibly clears pimples, lines, or red spots - but, again, maybe over time?)
This is a great product. It moisturizes, evens out skin tone, smooths fine lines a bit, refines pores, and actually makes skin feel firmer immediately. I have noticed an improvement in my skin after using this product for one week. I wake up with soft and clear skin, and require far less makeup than normal! This has helped with my acne, too, which I am grateful for. I adore the smell of this product - it smells like bread, probably because of the oat flour in it. mmm.
I highly recommend it for ppl who want to smooth out their skin and skin tone with something gentle and effective. I use Murad's essential C or Skin perfecting lotion on top of this. Love murad products!
I use this every night, and it makes my skin look so clear and fresh the next morning. I had initially stopped using it due to cost, but without it my face just looks older.
"This patented formula is clinically proven to increase firmness by 28% in ten minutes."
Where do they get these numbers? Perhaps they pull them out of their behinds. That 28%, what is that a percentage of exactly? I used up one bottle. Like others have said it does sting and some days it stings more depending on the shape of your skin. My face did feel a bit smoother right after I put it on but I didn't see any long term positive affects. Occasionally I got tiny little white heads but nothing too major. If it's exfoliation I want then I have other products I can use that cost less and work better.
I feel like this product is helping my pore size and clogged pores. I think it is marketed for the first signs of aging, but I feel like for me it has helpd my blackheads. One thing to note is that it did make me breakout for the first couple of weeks...nothing horrible but I did purge a bit.
I have sensitive skin and many AHA and BHA treatments are far too harsh for me, but not this one. It does sting a little going on, but it's over quickly. I follow it up with the Essential-C night moisturizer so my skin doesn't get overly dry. In the morning my face always feels so smooth and soft. When I skip a few nights I can really feel the difference.
