                      I was hoping to find a great new product that would lighten some dark spon my face. Plus, I was out of my usual moisturizer, so I thought I would kill 2 birds with one stone and get the kit. I have not seen any improvement in th Ed dark spots, as of yet, and my skin is much more sensitive and irritated than usual. The moisturizer is ok, but not great.

                          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.

                          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.

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

                          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.
