The Final Word

Murad Environmental Shield Essential-C Toner claims that it can revitalize skin that’s been harmed and damaged by environmental aggressors by infusing vitamins and hydration back into the skin. Although this may sound like the perfect remedy for your sun-damaged skin, there are several issues we think you should consider before purchasing.

This skincare treatment is rather pricey, particularly for anyone on a budget. Murad also recommends this product for use in conjunction with the entire Environmental Shield line. This may not be a realistic expense for some people.

Additionally, this skincare treatment is packed with fragrant ingredients, like orange peel oil. Although these ingredients are not synthetic fragrances, they still have the potential to cause damage to the skin. Used alongside the high amount of witch hazel in this formulation, your skin will likely experience more damage than anything else.
