Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum is recommended as the Step 2 treatment in any Murad Environmental Shield regimen, and targets dark spots and skin discoloration as part of Dr. Murad's Inclusive Health system of care.

      I just bought this a week ago. It says 85% say results in one week...was hoping to be one of the 85%. So far I don't see any results. I am going to obviously use the product until it is gone and hope that it works because I can't afford to have bought something that was not effective. So holding out hope still

          I use the orange line during the day for dark spots and uneven skin tone and the green line at night for the rejuvenation and it works beautifully and fast . I'm slowly but surely getting the bigger sizes of each item (all lines ) because I tried the sample pack n I loved it so much I grabbed the bigger sizes

                        This product contains ingredients that are active. It has not been tested for use around the eye therefore we cannot recommend to use it on the browbone or crease of the lid.

                        After you apply this product you would wait for it to dry down (30 seconds - 1 minute). Then you would follow with a moisturizer. For daytime make sure to use one with an SPF of 30.
