Dr Murad Energizing Pomegranate Cleanser...

During my last trip to my facialist, she told me that my skin was looking rather lacklustre (at that point, I was under some serious stress and attending a lot of night events, so the comment was quite warranted). I’m the kind of person that actually needs to wash my face in order to feel that I’ve taken off all my makeup regardless of whether I’ve used a makeup remover or not. This had caused a bit of a breakout and a vicious cycle, as due to the breakouts, I was wearing more makeup...and because of the added makeup, I was washing my face more frequently. Since I had some vouchers to redeem, she suggested that I try Dr Murad’s Energizing Pomegranate Cleanser.

The product itself is straight forward enough – it’s a dual-action foaming facial cleanser that’s designed to cleanse as well as tone at one go, as well as energize, promote healthy skin and revitalize tired skin. The active ingredients include:

  • Murad's powerful Energizing Pomegranate Complex™
  • Artemia to stimulate healthy cell function
  • Pomegranate antioxidants to help defend skin against elements
  • Witch Hazel to tone and tighten pores
  • Copper to energize skin

Gently massage foam over dampened face and neck. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. For optimal results, it’s recommended that you follow up with Murad’s Energizing Pomegranate Treatment and Energizing Pomegranate Moisturizer SPF15 during the day, but this is up to you.

The Verdict:
My facialist uses this every time I have a facial, so I was quite familiar with it already. First thing that stands out is the pomegranate scent – it seriously smells good enough to eat! The scent will certainly get you energized for the rest of the day.

It’s also very gentle and non-irritating, and takes every speck of makeup off despite feeling very ‘light’ on my skin and rinsing off easily. I also like the fact that after cleansing, my skin doesn’t feel tight. (Tip: If you find it difficult to smile after washing your face, your cleanser’s probably too harsh for your skin type!)

The product itself is quite pricey, but well worth it for the quality and results…plus, you save a bit on the toner as well. And did I mention that a bottle will last you ages?

Dr Murad Energising Pomegranate Cleanser is sold in bottles of 150ml and retails for approximately RM120.00. In Malaysia, you can purchase it at any CN Health & Beauty outlets.
