Intensive-C Radiance Peel instantly reverses environmental aging to enhance luminosity and reveal a noticeably brighter complexion. Glycolic acid exfoliates to accelerate turnover of dark, damaged cells which rids skin of dullness and improves skin texture. Myrtle extract supports natural renewal to improve youthful resilience and elasticity. Vitamin C and Indian Fig work together to protect against free radical damage while enhancing skin's clarity and luminosity.

This peel is recommended for use one to two times weekly as a Step 2 treatment in any Murad Environmental Shield regimen. It instantly leaves skin with a luminous, radiant glow as part of Dr. Murad's Inclusive Health system of care.

Dermatologist developed. Tested on people, not animals. Formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.
Massage evenly over clean face, neck and chest. You may experience a slight tingling sensation. Leave on for up to 10 minutes. Rinse with warm wash cloth and pat dry. Use 1 to 2 times weekly and follow with a Murad Step 3 moisturizer.

Precautions: For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes. Keep out of reach of children.

      Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Intensive-C Radiance Peel:

      I purchased this as a gentle exfoliator for my sensitive, acne prone skin, for the winter months. My skin is combination, but tends to get very dry and irritated in the cold winter months. Other exfoliators have proven to be too harsh for my skin, but after a week and two uses of this product my skin feels so soft and not irritated at all. I haven't used it long enough to see a noticeable difference in my hyperpigmentation or acne scars, but it has definitely helped to keep my current hormonal acne at bay. It It is a bit of a splurge, but I highly recommend this for those with very sensitive skin! Totally worth it.

          I bought the product as it was recommended by the sales staff as a gentle peel. I used it as instructed and it really didn't do anything at all. My skin felt and looked exactly the same as before using the product.

                This was the first "peel" product I bought. My face was dull, breaking out and no luminosity whatsoever. I bought this and within 2 times of using it my wrinkles on my forehead are GONE. After 2 uses!!! My dehydrated skin looks glowing and my makeup looks so flawless now as well. I use it every other day though. So glad I purchased.

                            This product is designed to even out skin tone and provide radiance. It contains ingredients that help to exfoliate the skin which might give the skin on the face a lighter cast than the rest of your body.
                            It is also designed to brighten the skin which you would not really get if you continue to tan your face.

                            A:

                            Typically we only disclose the percentage of an ingredient only when it is an "active ingredient" in other words, an OTC (over-the-counter), FDA (Food & Drug Administration) approved ingredient. In this product the percentages of ingredients are considered proprietary. What I can share with you is that Dr. Murad creates formulas based on a result not a percentage. Our products are designed to treat a specific concern within the skin, keeping in mind our Connected Beauty approach.
                            We do state however that we follow Cosmetic Ingredient Review Board's (CIR) guidelines in regards to AHA (Glycolic and Lactic Acid) percentages and pH levels for safety. The guidelines are as follows: have up to 10% and not be lower than pH 3.5.

                            You would use this product 1-3 times a week. This does not exfoliate physically like with beads. If you want the benefit of both types of exfoliation just switch them out. You can use your regular exfoliater 1 time a week and the Intensive-C Radiance Peel 1 time a week.

                            It is recommended that the Intensive-C Radiance Peel would replace your Step 2 on the day you use it. For example, if you were to use it in the morning, then you would not need to use your Advanced Active Radiance Serum. If you were to use it at night, then you would skip using your Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum for that night.

                            Intensive-C Radiance Peel does a fantastic job of giving you firmer, smoother, and glowing skin. While can work wonders on the skin, it was not primarily designed to diminish freckles.

                            Due to the usage of this product it would take significant time to see fading of freckles. We recommend using Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum (Item #: 2082341) at night and Advanced Active Radiance Serum (Item #: 2204176) during the day to fade freckles.
