Did you know that things like over-cleansing and environmental toxins can trigger imbalance on your skin? Anti-bacterial products and harsh cleansers destroy both good and bad bacteria. This is where prebiotics come in. Prebiotics are “food” for the good bacteria that help create a healthy balance.

Dr. Howard Murad has always advocated for overall wellness in addition to skin health. Murad’s newest innovations, Prebiotic 4-in-1 MultiCleanser and Prebiotic 3-in-1 MultiMist, nourish the skin with prebiotics to balance the microbiome for healthier-looking skin

Murad Prebiotic 4-in-1 MultiCleanser

Murad’s Prebiotic 4-in-1 MultiCleanser is a gel-to-oil, makeup-removing cleanser. It has non-drying formula that features ultra-cleansing peptide to melt makeup, dirt and excess oil, while moisturizing the skin. It is ideal for all skin types and can be used day and night.

Prebiotic 4-in-1 MultiCleanser Key Ingredients:

1. Cruelty-free and formulated without parabens, sulfates, phthalates, gluten and animal-derived ingredients.
2. Hemisqualane – Plant-based (from sugar cane) emollient that effectively dissolves eye, lip and face makeup (including water-proof) as it nourishes skin.
3. Cyclic peptide – Unique cleansing peptide that is 300 times more efficient than traditional surfactants, delivering high-efficiency cleansing with low irritation. Traps oil and debris to be more easily rinsed from skin without stripping natural facial oils.
4. Prebiotic powder – Nourishes good bacteria to promote a healthy balance.
5. Hyaluronic acid and prebiotic hydrating sugars – Soften and smooth as they reinforce skin’s natural hydration.

How to use Prebiotic 4-in-1 MultiCleanser

Apply directly to dry skin and massage thoroughly over face and eyes. Wet hands and continue massaging to create a light, milky emulsion.

Prebiotic 4-in-1 MultiCleanser Review

I’ve been trying Prebiotic 4-in-1 MultiCleanser for the past few days and so far so good– no breakouts, no allergic reactions or irritations. It can remove makeup– even waterproof products. Although I’m into double cleansing, I’m pretty assured that my skin is really clean even if I use this alone. (See sample below) It is also not drying. Skin feels hydrated after rinsing.

During the launch, it was mentioned that it can also be used when travelling or if you’re on-the-go. Just massage the cleanser on your face and wipe with a wet facial tissue. I find this quite sticky though so rinsing with water is still the best option for me.

Murad Prebiotic 3-in-1 MultiMist

Prebiotic 3-in-1 MultiMist is a 3-in-1, peptide-rich, hydrating mist that replenishes with prebiotics to balance skin’s microbiome for healthier-looking skin. It features hydrating sugars to moisturize and refresh skin, while a yeast peptide helps lock in hydration. A multi-tasking biopolymer complex primes and sets makeup.

Murad Prebiotic 3-in-1 MultiMist Key Ingredients:

1. Cruelty-free and formulated without parabens, sulfates, phthalates, gluten and animal-derived ingredients.
2. Prebiotic hydrating sugars: Promote enrichment of good bacteria. Reinforce and help boost skin’s natural hydration reserves for a smooth, healthy barrier.
3. Yeast peptide: Helps lock in skin’s natural moisture levels to promote healthy, hydrated skin, which, in turn, supports an ideal environment for good bacteria to flourish.
4. Bipolymer complex: Forms a natural second skin (a protective and non-occlusive/breathable film) on skin’s surface. Primes and sets makeup that helps ensure longer wear. Helps preserve the skin barrier as it smooths.

How to use Murad Prebiotic 3-in-1 MultiMist

Murad’s Prebiotic 3-in-1 MultiMist is a Murad Step 4 boost. This new step is an addition to Murad’s traditional 3-step process including cleanse, treat and hydrate. A Murad Step 4 boost is an enhancement, not a replacement, to your current regimen, and is designed to add a next-level boost of customization to your current regimen’s benefits Prebiotic 3-in-1 MultiMist can be misted onto the skin either after cleansing/under makeup to prime or after makeup to set. It can also be used to refresh anytime, delivering hydration throughout the day.

Murad Prebiotic 3-in-1 MultiMist Review

I like how ultra fine the mist is. My face doesn’t look like I just came out of the shower when I spritz on this Prebiotic 3-in-1 MultiMist. It instantly hydrates and refreshes my skin even when sprayed on top of my makeup. It can be too moisturizing though for those with oily skin so I make sure not to overdo it– 2 to 3 pumps are enough for my face and neck. If you have dry skin or if you are travelling to cold places though, I would suggest bringing this mist wherever you go!
