I'm one of those lucky/annoying people who don’t tend to be troubled with blemishes too often, but saying that, i had the mother of hormonal breakouts last month! It seemed like every day I woke up with a new one. I knew it was down to hormones rather than anything I had been putting on my face because I was just using
my tried and tested skincare routine, but it did seem like as good a time as any to break open the latest offering from Murad.

The Pore & Line Minimising Hydrator* is the newest addition to Murad’s Anti-Ageing Blemish System that was created to address two of the biggest skin concerns – ageing and blemishes – simultaneously. I love this concept; with some brands it seems as though you pick your skincare concern and stick to it but I’m sure there are plenty of people out there who suffer from breakouts or adult acne who also want to take preventative steps towards ageing and with this range you can kill two birds with one stone (so to speak).
As is becoming the theme with Murad, i fell in love with this product pretty much on first use. Its feather light texture lies somewhere between a cream and a gel and thanks to the Witch Hazel content it is really soothing on the skin. A little goes a long way and it absorbs really quickly so is great for use in the morning. Straight away i noticed how nourished my skin felt, the active ingredients stimulate collagen production as well as tackling oiliness and repairing skin breakouts and this was very apparent. I sometimes find that oil control lotions can be a bit lacking on the hydration front, not this one! I've been pairing this with hydraluron and my skin is feeling plump and hydrated despite the drop in temperature over the last couple of weeks, and the breakout has completely cleared up.
I've been using this for a few weeks now and i have noticed an improvement in the texture of my skin as well as an impressive change in the oiliness of my t zone, my skin feels much more balanced. As a multi -purpose product, the Line & Pore Minimising Hydrator really does hit the nail on the head, targeting the two skin concerns with equal amount of clout.
If this sounds like something you need on your skincare shelf you can pick it up online or from Murad counters in House of Fraser in Leeds and London from November. It costs £49.50 for 50ml, so it is at the higher end of things but worth every penny in my opinion. Get it on your Christmas lists girls!
