I have combination skin and heard that this product is suitable for people with combo.
The packaging quality is ok because my cap is broken, not able to tighten it. The lotion is little runny but it absorbs into my skin very well but I don't feel it moisturizes or hydrates. After few weeks of using it, I was bored and decided to read those ingredients and discovered that it contains five paraben ingredients! (Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Butylparaben, Propylparaben, Isobutylparaben) - That sounds a bit excessive for a small tube. I don't mind if there's just one paraben ingredient but five? :(

This was awful for my skin!!! I dont have sensitive skin. Ive never had any problems with skincare products. But this ruined my skin! I bought a set with the cleanser, moisturizer,mask and toner in this range, Vitalic. After a week of using it I started to notice som bumps on my skin ive never seen before. One week later, the had grown. I started to search online and found out that this moisturizer had caused Milia on my skin! Milia is tiny white bumps under the skin that wont go away until you have them removed by a professional. Ouch!
I knew that Murad has alot of crap in their products but wow, this is just awful. Im glad that i didnt buy the fullsize. Its super expensive and NOT worth the money. In terms of hydration, nah, ive tried better. This is just an awful product.

I had this product for months and I would always use it for a few days and then decide I didn't like it and then I'd start using it again a couple of months later. I eventually threw this product out. I think it makes my skin very greasy and I think it caused a few minor breakouts. I didn't love the scent either. This stuff is way too expensive for what it is. Would not repurchase.

I sampled this moisturizer twice, once as a packet from a Sephora order and again after mistaking this for the Korres pom moisturizer. It did not do anything bad to my skin, but nothing good either. I felt like it got greasy on my face 1-2 hours after application, but nothing horrendous. I can do better.

Found this on special online & decided to buy. I've been using it daily for the past few months and I have no negative feedback about it. I have somewhat sensitive skin and I never once reacted to it, it has a refreshing fragrance and keeps my skin moisturised and happy! I find it needs a little more time (than other daily moisturisers) to really sink into my skin – although this may be because of the SPF factor.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Dry, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
I've tried a ton of different moisturizers and I must say this is one of my favorites. I tend to have dry skin, so the somewhat oily consistency of the lotion works for me! I usually use this as my daytime moisturizer, since it has SPF 15 and it's not too heavy. Because of my dry skin I have to use something a little creamier at night. I get this at Ulta for $33, which I don't think is a bad price. If you compare it to a lot of 2 oz. drugstore brand moisturizers, there's not a huge difference in price, so I absolutely think it's worth it.

I really wanted this product to work. This summer I have had so many problems with breakouts and every moisturizer I tried just seemed to produce more. This one was no different.
I loved the smell and I like the thought of antioxidant pomegranate. For the first few days it worked well. I agree with other reviewers it does feel like it sits on your skin which I think is the SPF, I was not particularly bothered by this and thought it moisturized well. But on the 4th day it broke me out quite badly. I stopped using it for a week and waited until my spots cleared and then tried again, 48 hours later more breakouts so definitely will not purchase full size.
I don't know why it's so hard to find an oil free moisturiser that moisturises but doesn't result in break outs.... alas the search continues.

I would give this moisturizer 5 stars if it didn't cost $37 for 2 ounces. That said, it's much less expensive than most Murad products.
I got this as a sample and purchased the full size, which I use sparingly during the day (over the Avon Liiv serum). It has a slight chemical scent under the pomegranate smell, but it goes away quickly and doesn't bother me. I like the tube package, but be sure to invert it before dispensing, or you'll get too much. I like the texture of my skin when I use this, and it has a fairly matte finish, especially for an SPF product. I've been outdoors a lot this winter, skiing, and my skin remains happy.
I'm not sure if I want a moisturizer this expensive all the time, but on the other hand, it's a lot cheaper than laser treatments. I will probably try some other things, but will repurchase if I find it on sale or decide it's worth it.

I received a sample of this. I have sampled and bought a few Murad products and have either returned them or just finished the sample and never purchased. To me Murad is a very expensive brand that does not do very much. This has a nice scent although to me it was a little plain. The moisturizer itself was a little runny and did not soak in very quickly. I also agree with other reviewers that felt this left them shiny. I had to use a little bit more powder to tone it down. I just looked like I had been for a run without the redness. Altogether not a worthwhile product. I would use this in a pinch if I had a sample, but I would not pay money for it.

makes skin super oily and shiny and clogged my pores with blackheads, caused me to break out even on my neck. will not recommend this to anyone with oily/ acne prone skin

i bought this many years ago and have had it sitting away some where..i was bored today rummaging through my things and found it. the lotion smells very nice, but that is about the only special thing about it. it is very very runny, and feels very greasy on my skin. i don't know if it's the fragrance or what, but after applying my skin feels like it's on fire. not only is it painful, but it is not helping the dryness very much. i feel that this product just creates greasiness on my face without actually softening or moisturizing any of my dry spots. smells good, but nothing super special here imo.

I was recommended this product at the Sephora store to improve the health of my skin. At that time, I occasionally broke up, so the lady offered me an oil free moisturizer. The consistency of this moisturizer is thin and runny with a mild pleasant (pomegranate?) fragrance. I am one of those people that doesn't like things that smell strong, but the smell of this moisturizer was fine. As I continued to use the product, I could notice that my skin was improving. It felt more radiant and smooth. Another reason for this could be that I was not using moisturizer before this, but overall I would say that this was an effect moisturizer. The only complaint that I would have is the semi-greasy feeling of the oil-free moisturizer. After application, I felt like my face looked super shiny.

I've found that Murad's oil-free products tend to be on the oily side - same with this moisturizer. However, it's fairly light and absorbs well. It's rather thin, smells a bit like sunscreen and definitely doesn't fall into the heavy-duty moisture category. It's nothing to write home about. It didn't perform any miracles, but as a lightweight moisturizer with spf for summer, it's fine. I use a tinted moisturizer so in the summer I'm okay with using a lighter product. I should probably add that I bought this for my boyfriend but he hated it so I ended up using it for myself.

I love this product smells great and sinks in and doesnt sit on my skin! it keeps my skin well moisturized all day.

I love this moisturizer. The scent is awesome and not overpowering to me, and I'm very smell-sensitive. It feels very light on, not greasy or like there is a residue on your face.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
I tried a sample of this from Sephora. It's really light, absorbs easily, and I loved the very mild scent.
But did it do anything a drugstore moisturizer doesn't? I don't think so.
I liked it, but didn't notice anything "energizing" about it.

When i tried to squirt a bit out, a big ol' glop came flying out! i had to use the leftover for my hands (yes-it was THAT much). anyway, it felt sticky on application and i waited a couple of minutes for it to get absorbed. this is probably best for people with normal to dry skin. defintiely NOT for acne or oily types. smells great but at the same time, i dont like having all that fragrance on my face or in my products. will not repurchase. plus-tube is wayyy too small for that price.

Great moisturizer. Lightly scented with SPF and a light texture, it's one I'm putting I'm going to keep going back to (for the summer anyhow). It also has an "energizing pomegranate complex" although I'm not too sure what that entails. It's too bad I have to cross the border to get this. Deducted one from packaging because the lid doesn't fit very securely which is not fun when traveling.

I LOVE this stuff! It's everything I've been looking for in a moisturizer. My skin isn't super dry normally, though it does feel dry at times, and I do use a heavier nighttime moisturizer, so this is perfect for me for daytime. I love that it has SPF (though not a lot, but enough for when you're only going to be running from your car to inside, etc.) and I love that it moisturizes my normal skin without feeling heavy. Some other reviewers have described it as watery, but I love that about it because it doesn't feel heavy. It sinks in well and my skin is very moisturized afterward. I like how the tube is designed; it prevents a lot of extra product from seeping out since the moisturizer's consistency is pretty thin. It has a very light scent that I don't mind - and I'm pretty picky about scented things going on my face. It also hasn't broken my sensitive, acne-prone skin out. My only complaint would be the price, but at $30ish for 2 oz, it's not really that bad as far as Sephora-esque products go. And since it does everything I want, I don't mind paying for it.

I love the smell of this product b/c it makes me feel ready to go. My only problem with this product is that after a few months it began to make my sensitive face sting (big no no!!) so I just can't get myself to buy this product again.
