How to Find the Perfect Murad® Skincare Product For You

Birchbox recently kicked off a partnership with Murad®, the very first dermatologist-founded skincare brand and a favorite among many of our colleagues and customers. In a sea of endless skincare options, Murad® produces effective products with color-coded packaging that makes it easy for you to determine which line within the brand is right for your skin type and needs, whether you struggle with breakouts, want to lighten up pesky scarring, or are looking to fight signs of aging. Read on to find out which one suits you best—it’s as simple as 1-2-3, blue-orange-green!

Blue = Acne/Oily

Looking to fight breakouts and keep shine at bay? Murad®’s blue acne line contains medicated acne-fighting ingredients like salicylic acid and sulfur, which banish existing breakouts and keep new ones from popping up.

Blue Acne Favorites: Rapid Relief Acne Spot Treatment: This fast-acting spot treatment zaps zits in a flash thanks to its formula containing 2% salicylic acid. You’ll notice a decrease in the size and redness of the unwelcome visitor in just four hours. So pop it on, apply your makeup, and move on with your day.

Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15 PA++: Yes, oily skin needs to stay hydrated, too. This moisturizer regulates oil production for up to eight hours and leaves a matte finish on your face without drying it out.

Orange = Environmental Shield

Those that live in big cities get daily exposure to harmful pollution, UV rays, and other environmental stressors that wreak havoc on your complexion and can lead to premature aging (no thanks!). To protect your skin from the not-so-good pollutants living in the air, opt for Murad®’s orange line. These pollution-shielding products keep your complexion protected while fading hard-to-lighten dark spots, leaving skin brighter and more radiant.

Orange Environmental Shield Favorites: Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum: With hydroquinone as its main ingredient, this serum helps to fade age spots, dark spots, and even freckles. Plus, it prevents future damage and brightens your skin with the help of the formula’s exfoliating glycolic acid.

Essential-C Cleanser: This citrus-scented, vitamin-enriched cleanser gives skin a healthy glow and protects against free radicals. The gentle exfoliating beads instantly soften skin and leave it looking oh-so-radiant.

Purple = Age Reform

Just spotted your first wrinkle? Don’t panic! As you get older, your skin’s collagen levels deplete and the elastin weakens, leading to loss of firmness. The purple age reform line is formulated to combat those early signs of aging by firming and keeping skin hydrated.

Purple Age Reform Favorites: Invisiblur™ Perfecting Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 30 PA+++: This 3-in-1 winner helps to blur pores, provide anti-aging benefits, and protect against UVA/UVB rays. Save time and face by using this multi-tasking product in the morning before makeup or on its own!

AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser: This gentle yet effective formula removes dead skin cells, smooths skin, and helps to retain moisture with the help of chemical exfoliating agents salicylic acid, lactic acid, and glycolic acid. It’s a must for those looking to fight the good fight against aging and keep a more youthful glow.

Green = Resurgence

Fine lines, crow’s feet, and dark circles are now a thing of the past. Where the purple line helps those at the beginning stages, the green line is perfect for those with a more pronounced loss of firmness and more deep set wrinkles.

Green Resurgence Favorites: Renewing Eye Cream: Formulated with youth building peptides and retinol, this eye cream helps to reduce dark circles and minimize signs of aging. Not only does it look good, but it feels good, too. The cream hydrates and soothes on contact leaving your eye area ultramoisturized.

Retinol Youth Renewal Serum: A retinol serum that reduces fine lines and gives skin a radiant boost? Yes, please! We love how fast this serum delivers results and keeps improving our skin over time.
