Youth Cam & facial at Murad, Liverpool

You may know, I suffer horrendously with my skin - and my hormones are all over the place lately, so it's as bad as ever right now. There are good days, of course, but my eyes are covered in eczema and I've got a few breakouts going out. When the lovely ladies at the Murad counter in Liverpool invited Sam and I over for facials, I wasn't going to turn it down was I?

They also have a Youth Cam, which is a little camera that takes a photo of your skin, and not just the first layer. It can show sun damage, blocked pores that aren't visible to you yet, inflammation that isn't surface level - it's honestly one of the most fascinating things I've ever seen. It also shows you how your skin will change over the course of a few years if you don't treat the problem areas (I'll have an awful lot of wrinkles under my eyes, apparently) and how it'll change if you do. I came away with a load of skincare tips (more broccoli, less sugar) and then it was time for my facial.

Honestly, I love a good facial and this was one of the best I've had - Carly was a true professional, and she worked each and every product into my skin beautifully as well as explaining what they all were and what they did. She cleansed my skin with the Soothing Gel Cleanser then, in true blogger style, I was multi-masking; a hydrating one over the majority of my skin and the Blackhead & Pore Clearing Duo on my nose, which isn't as sensitive as the rest of my skin. Carly then popped the Renewing Eye Cream on for me, followed by a Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture cream. She finished off with, in my opinion, their best product: the Invisiblur Perfecting Shield, which is a dream especially for make up wearers. I actually used it in this video, shameless plug alert.

Murad products are cosmeceutical, so they're skincare made by actual doctor people who really know what they're talking about - and it's clear that this knowledge extends to the counters, too! The products I've tried so far are brilliant (keep your eyes peeled for a Murad-exclusive 'sample stash' post) and they have products for all different skin types!

If you get the chance to go to a Murad counter and have either a Youth Cam or a facial done, I would 100% recommend it.
