"Eat Your Water" - Dr. Murad [Event + Short Review]

I was invited to join the Dr.Murad Beauty Workshop recently and is all thanks to Jessying for the introduction. We had so much fun trying out their few of their star products by having a little facial session during the workshop itself. 

What's "Eat Your Water"? Here's the juicy news:
It is from one of Dr.Murad's new book "The water secret" talking about drinking excessive water will easily flush away all your vitamins and vital minerals in your body plus more trips to the toilet. Eating your water such as from raw fruits, vegetables and etc will do better in not only help holding water in your body longer but also you will get added boost of important antioxidants, fiber and other nutrient. So start eating you water and you won't need to count your glasses!

Who is Dr Murad?
Labeled by Vogue Magazine as “Best Forward-Thinking Doctor” and a “Beauty Genius” by Elle Magazine, Dr Howard Murad is a visionary in the fields of skincare and dermatology. A board-certified dermatologist, trained pharmacist, and Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine (Dermatology) at the Geffen School of Medicine, UCLA, his research shows that beautiful, healthy skin is attainable for everyone. In 1989 he founded Murad, Inc. as a way to share his groundbreaking skincare formulas which were among the first to achieve significant measurable anti-aging results without surgery.Using his medical experience, Dr. Murad has developed and clinically proven The Science of Cellular Water™, the world’s most comprehensive approach to understanding health and aging. The Science of Cellular Water looks at the ability of cell membranes to hold water as the fundamental marker of youthful good health and advocates an Inclusive Health approach to help the body create stronger, healthier cells as the pathway to beauty.

These are a few skincare range under the Murad's brand.

Theses are the products that we used for our facial workshop session. 

Of course, what makes an event without a little ice-breaking session. The final 2 winners totally dance to the Oppa Gangnam Style!

This is our Murad Educator, Chion. 
13 years in the industry and she was the one going through the steps and products one by one. :)

Here we go, the facial begins:

Gentle eye makeup remover
No rubbing, everyone just spread the remover equally on the cotton pad and hold it on your eyes to remove all your eye makeup

Refreshing cleanser
Bubble, bubble, bubble pop!
It is vital to foam up your cleaner so that it is gentler on your skin and cleanse thoroughly.  

Essential-C cleanser (as a double cleanse)
Smells super citrus-ly nice. The beads melts as you lather it up thus is not as harsh on your skin.
Even just by after 2 wash, we skin already felt so smooth but not tight at all. 

Pomegranate Exfoliating Mask
Smells amazing and filed with lots of antioxidant! It is rather drippy as the consistency is thin. This mask is also rather stingy to some sensitive skin, it is advisable to leave it on for a shorter time if you have acne or sensitive skin or else leave it on for 10-15 minutes. The wonder of this mask left a strong cooling feeling on the skin even after removing and it stays cooling for the next 30 minutes or so. The feeling was so nice!

Hydrating Toner
Cooling toner that you can spray anytime you want even over makeup.

Now this is the big baby! The ultimate product for the day!

Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture for eyes
Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture for eyes super-charges and awakens the delicate eye area with ultra-hydrating ingredients that quench skin, restore youthful resiliency and improve tone. 

Further in-depth review coming soon on this eye cream!

Lock in moisture with White Brilliance Illuminating Day Moisture
Not sticky and very moisturising.

Protect your skin from harmful sunlight and aging with Oil-free Sunblock SPF 30
Does not have the heavy sunscreen scent.
