    Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum:

    I use this product at night with my other Murad products. I have noticed a big difference in the pigmentation on my face and even some on the back of my hands. It takes out the redness of blemishes and seems to help them heal a little faster than usual. I like this product a lot but I had to take a star away for the smell and I can be a bit challenging applying.

          I will try a product based on reviews and pray this is the one for me. Within a week and half the 2 brown spots on my face were faded. I would recommend this to everyone. I am now going to see if it will help with a few spots on my arm. But, if not, that is ok, as I am happy with what it did do for my facial spots. A little expensive but well worth it, plus you use so little.

          With daily use you will in fact notice a difference in spots lightening. While I don't have large spots of discoloration I do have several smaller areas across my cheeks that have been bothering me for some time. After 10 days of use I noticed the difference. The smell isn't all that great but it works!

          saw significant improvement on some dark spots I have been trying to battle in just one week. I think I will cycle off to something a with more natural ingredients once I get the spots to a more manageable shade, but this is definitely staying in my arsenal for those pesky flair ups that I just can't help to pop!

              Also, I have dark spots on my chest. so, would I put the product on face and chest or face, neck and chest?

              thanks

                A:

                There are just a few formula differences but I would recommend the Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum. And yes it can be applied to your face, neck and chest. But keep in mind, when you are using this product you must be diligent with using a daily daytime moisturizer.

                Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum will help with any post acne pigment. You will need to be consistent with applying it daily and proper sunscreen is a must.

                A:

                Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum is designed to use all over the face but if you like it is ok to just apply onto the pigmented areas. Just some added information on hydroquinone, since 1982, hydroquinone has been recognized as safe and effective by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), as an OTC (over the counter) topical agent used to reduce hyperpigmentation.

              How long does the product stay good for? If I buy a backup, but still have half a bottle, will the new one last that long or is it recommended to purchase it only if you intend to use it immediately?
