    Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Starter Kit:

    I just bought this product yesterday and used it once. When I woke up this morning and looked in the mirror my face was glowing and it has already started to lighten up the dark acne spots on my cheeks. I am very pleased at the results. I don't write reviews often but for me to do so I really have to like the product. This is great, I feel more confident now in my appearance. BTW I am a light skinned African American if you are curious too know my skin type.

          I was looking for a vitamin C serum to get rid of some hyper pigmentation spots on my face, and I've finally found a match. After only a week of using the kit daily, I've noticed a huge difference in the color of the spots as well as an overall brightness of my face.

            I bought this product in hopes that it will help my combination skin. Well, it made my skin worse. I now have patchy dry and peeling spots on my face. My pores seems clogged and I have the worse breakouts right now.

                Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Starter Kit:

                I was looking for a product for my age spots, uneven skin tone from years in the sun. I'm trying Murad Environmental Shield for this purpose. It seems a little strong so I probably wouldn't suggest this line of Murad to someone with sensitive skin. But it does make my skin feel soft and seems to brighten my skin. I'm not sure about the sun spots diminishing just yet, but hoping to see improvement soon.

                      A:

                      Dr. Murad believes that a toner helps to prepare and ready your skin for a serum. This helps your serum to penetrate deeper into the surface layer of the skin.

                      A:

                      Yes, this kit will work on any skin tone. When it speaks to brightening or lightening dark spots it means it will help bring your skin back to the color it was before your skin ever saw the sun. It will not change the skin tone you were born with.

                      Since our products have not been tested with using the philosophy peel we cannot speak to the effects it will have on your skin when you use both.

                      Yes, this product will help with wrinkles as well as discoloration. This is one of Murad's ant-aging lines. While it targets discoloration each product is also designed to combat the signs of aging.

                      These products have not been tested with Bio-Light Therapy, therefore we are unable to say if they would compliment each other.
