Murad Christmas Gift Set - Hydration Sensation

Continuing my dry skin theme, here is another great bundle of treats. I recently went to a Murad blogger event where I got to meet the Doctor himself - what he doesn't know about skincare isn't worth knowing!

We were treated to a gift box specially launched for Christmas and because of my dry skin I decided on the Hydration Sensation one.

Inside you get a hydrating toner, plus a Hydra-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture cream for face and eyes.

(Ignore the wrapping paper in the background!)

I think my favourite product in this is the Hydrating Toner, a quick spritz and your skin is hydrated immediately. I do find it takes a while to sink into the skin but I'm talking minutes rather than ages (I'm just really impatient!). A combination of fruit extracts, witch hazel and vitamins calms, soothes and tightens pores ready to move onto the other products! The only downside is that you only get 15ml of it, but if you do like it you can buy 100ml separately - at £23 for 150ml it is reasonably priced too.

Next up are the Hydra-Dynamic moisturisers, one for the face and one for the eyes. Both of them are rich without being heavy. They moisturise really well but you can't feel them 'sitting' on the skin. Murad claim that they both lock in moisture for up to 8 hours. I never felt my skin drying throughout the day so I think that could be true! One downside - no SPF included in the face cream.

At £64 for a 50ml face cream, and £57 for a 15ml eye cream, these products are pricey and I have to say that I think there are just as good moisturisers available for less.

This Christmas set is £73.50, expensive but if you can afford it a great product for someone special in your life who deserves such a treat! You know you're going to get good quality ingredients crammed into each product by Dr. Murad!
