I’ve always loved philosophy scents, especially Amazing Grace, which just happened to be my signature scent throughout my collegiate days. Celebrate Grace, however, is the more grown-up version of the classic, crowd-pleasing scent, as it fuses together aromatic notes of lavender, elegant white rose and clean musk. Boasting long staying power without becoming too overpowering, your mom, grandmother or doting aunt will love finding this elegant scent under the tree.

We’re also all for multitasking products. And you can bet that philosophy’s shower, shampoo and bubble bath gels have always been a long-term favorite of ours. Not only does it leave our skin glowing and gorgeous, but it delivers amazing scents we simply can’t resist that seem to grow in aroma as the hot steam fills the air. The Christmas Cookie Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath brings the nostalgic scent of warm baked cookies right to your well-deserving bod — without the mess in the kitchen, of course.

With the winter chill already here, it’s important to treat your beauty arsenal to some skin-saving goodies that keep your skin smooth and equally hydrated. Sure, certain skincare products can contain ingredients that strip your skin from necessary ingredients, but Murad is always one of those brands you can count on, leaving your skin feeling velvety smooth and fortified with necessary antioxidants essential for healthy, winter-ready skin.

Recently testing out the Murad Celebrate Smooth Kit, I was overjoyed to treat my skin to an early holiday gift, as each skin-boosting product gives my skin that amazing look and feel it deserves. Upon opening the kit, I was surprised at how colorful the inside of the bag was; its rainbow-galaxy design enticed me immediately to look for the goodies inside.

Dr. Murad Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum: Sponsored Review

To my surprise, first up was the Murad AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser (in a travel size) that uses 3 beneficiary acids to remove dead skin cells and give you a brighter, healthier-looking glow after each use.

Collagen also happens to be an important skincare-building block. So you bet I was totally enamored with the Murad Rapid Collagen Infusion product as it keeps your skin extra supple with its special formula filled with ceramides and fatty acids. For best results, apply onto your neck and face each night for plump and fuller-looking skin in the morning.

Need a new eye cream? Try the Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture For Eyes, which immediately delivers relief from dry and cracked skin underneath the delicate under eye tissue. Plus, standing tall against wrinkles and fine lines, you can use this baby for that anti-aging eye cream you’ve been desperately hoping for.

Finally comes my favorite item, the Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture to give even the driest skin extreme moisture. And with a non-greasy formula, you don’t have to worry about clogged pores and unwanted breakouts. It’s just pure and total hydration when using this all-day and all-night cream. Now available at The Murad Inclusive Health Spa and Murad Flagship Store.
