REVIEW: MURAD INVISIBLUR PERFECTING SHIELD SPF30

Murad is a skincare brand I’ll always hold in high regard. Since being introduced to Dr Murad and his effective skincare line a few years ago, I’ve made my all-time favourite Murad product, the AHA/BHA Exfoliating  Cleanser a staple product – but that’s another blog post!

Today however, I’m talking about what has fast become one of their hero products since its launch in 2015. With an accolade of beauty industry awards already under its belt, Invisiblur Perfecting Shield SPF30 has left many impressed by its results.

A favourite with make up artists, this unique product combines a primer, moisturiser, and sun protection into a single step, it also hydrates, smooths and blurs the skin of imperfections for a smooth soft-focus finish; skin is prepped ready for flawless makeup application.  Suitable for all skin types, I was particularly keen to see if this would control the oiliness I suffer from a few hours after applying my make up.

It is non-comedogenic so won’t clog pores or make any oily areas worse. Its  lightweight gel formula, leaves a matte finish and gives an instant improvement to fine lines and wrinkles. I have developed a couple of very fine lines on either side of my mouth (I grin too much!) and Invisblur does indeed temporarily blur them out. I love how easily it glides onto the skin, leaving it feeling soft and smooth and I have noticed that my current foundation (NARS Luminous) has lasted longer when I use this.

Although this contains SPF30, I still like to use a separate sunscreen before applying this on top, that’s just my personal preference. I was worried that it may cause my my moisturiser to go “bitsy” but I’m pleased to report it doesn’t. I like to wait a few mins before applying my makeup, so not to ‘overwhelm’ my skin with too many steps in a short time. That’s just my little routine and it works for me.

For some pro tips on how to get the most out of Invisiblur, check out this short video from Murad:

Murad undertake a lot of charity work and is supporting The Prince’s Trust for the second year running. This year they have launched a luxury size, Limited Edition of Invisblur. Coincidentally it’s also the 40th anniversary of The Prince’s Trust.

With every limited edition Invisiblur sold, £10 will be donated to The Prince’s Trust, to help support its efforts to help disadvantaged young people turn their lives around. I’m really impressed at the generous donation, as brands on a whole, are usually quite miserly, typically donating a £1 or 10% of total sales.

Beautify yourself and do your bit for charity at the same time – guilt-free shopping!

How much is it? £69.50 (50ml)
