A person’s skin is one of the uttermost unique parts about their physical body. No skin type is the same—sure, you and your sister can both have oily skin, but the severity varies between you two. Skin is the largest organ a human has, so it is vital to take the best care of it as one possibly can. Drugstores and health & beauty shops raid their shelves with every skincare product out there—both overwhelming and unhelpful. But thanks to the internet, skincare users have been able to help one another decide which products are best. The two that have been seen all over the beauty world recently are Murad and Dermalogica. Before & after photos of product users flood beauty world followers’ social media feeds, begging followers to try out products. Murad fans and Dermalogica fans both benefit from the skincare products, but the differences between the product lines may affect which brand is right for you.
Murad vs. Dermalogica: Cost
Both of these brands are high end—so be sure not to compare their price to drugstore brands like Neutrogena or Clean & Clear. One of Murad’s best-selling facial cleansers is their Clarifying Cleanser which retails at $30.00 for 6.75 fluid oz. Dermalogica’s best-selling cleaner, Special Cleansing Gel, retails for $38.00 for 8.4 fluid oz. When it comes to moisturizers, things become a bit more spendy, as your product is not just going to be washed off your face, it’ll soak into your skin for hours. Murad’s Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream—awarded Fall 2017 Beauty O-ward—sells at $82.00 for only 1.7 fluid oz. Dermalogica’s Sound Sleep Cocoon night gel-cream retails at $80.00 for 1.7 fluid oz. Typical day to day products are around the same price between the brands, but specialty products are a bit different. Dermalogica’s Biolumin-c serum is $87.00 for 30ml, while Murad’s Rapid age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum is $69.00 for 1 fluid oz. If money is a game changer for which product brand you want to use, choosing between the two shouldn’t be anything stressful.
Murad vs. Dermalogica: Products
Murad and Dermalogica distribute very high quality crafted skin care designed by dermatologists. Products range from every day face washes, toners, exfoliants, to treatments, serums, peels and masks. The major differences between Murad and Dermalogica are the product lines. Dermalogica products are categorized by “product system” (age smart, ultracalming, clear start, daylight defense, etc.) and “skin concern” (acne and breakouts, oiliness, adult acne, dryness and dehydration, etc.). These categories make it easy to find products related to your skin’s concerns and needs. Dermalogica’s website also offers a face mapping feature, which allows potential product users to target trouble areas with specific products based off a skin analysis. Murad’s product line specializes in acne and anti-aging. Skin concern lines include oil control, hydration, lifting &firming, radiance, redness, and lots more. For those suffering from adult acne, lots of their acne products include anti-aging ingredients, killing two birds with one stone. Murad also had a Men’s collection available.
