                Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Starter Kit:

                I am very disappointed after purchasing 30 day starter kit and nighttime moisture cream. I was hoping to see a difference in my hyperpigmentation, and after 30 days I saw none. Plus it is very, and I mean very drying for my 48yr old skin. Now I have a new problem which is dry, dull, lifeless skin. I have a crepiness on my cheeks that I did not have before using Murad. I feel like crying. It does not work.

                        Dr. Murad cannot speak to the rodan & fields products. He can only speak to Murad products.
                        This kit contains Murad's number 1 product, Rapid Age Spot & Pigment Lightening Serum, which contains the gold standard ingredient to fade and lighten spots.

                        This kit is very active and not recommended for someone with sensitive skin or rosacea. A more gentle and hydrating kit would be the Age Reform Starter Kit. Item #: 2289391

                        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.

                        This kit could soften the lines. The better kit would be the Age Reform Starter Kit. Item #: 2289391
                        This kit is designed to help with hydration and plumping.

                        This could depend on what all of your concerns might be. People who have oily skin and want to correct or protect from sun damage really love this kit.

                        We recommend using Advanced Active Radiance Serum during the day and the Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum at night.
