So far So good

About Me Brand Buyer

Pros

  • Easy To Use
  • Hydrates Skin
  • Soothing

Cons

  • Smells A Little Too Stong

Best Uses

  • Adult Acne
  • Inflammatory Acne

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

I just started using this product for my adult acne and so far I am impressed with my results on clarity of skin and texture, I'm sure it will get even better.

My black spots are not clearing as fast as I had hoped but I'm sure it will get there, just being a little impatient I guess.

Overall this is a quality product, pricy but I'm hoping to stick with it for a long time.

      I'm giving this a second try. I had a bottle previously, but was not active in putting this product on. I did notice while I was using this product consecutively it seem to lighten my dark spot on my temple. I'll test it out again, and hopefully it works.

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

        Disappointed in this product, especially for as much as it is without the any result. The advertisement for this pigment lightening serum claims 85% saw spots lighten in just one week. Im on day 8 and I melasma on my upper lip, it's a grayish color and I guess im one of the 15% who this product didnt work for. It hasn't even faded one bit. I also have dark spots below my eyes too. Ive also applied in that location every night without an improvement either. I suppose I have no choice but to cake on more makeup to hide my spots. As far as the scent of the product, it smells like a mixture of garlic,oranges and vinegar combined together..almost something that you'd smell out of a dumpster and thats my honest opinion. However that scent fades immediately after it drys in a few seconds. It did leave my face a little sticky and caused my face to stick to my pillow. I hate that I had to give this such a low rating and leave this review because I had high hopes for this product. Maybe this serum works for others, but it surely didn't for me. Sorry.

                        I was wary to get my hopes up for truly rapid skin evening and scar fading, but WOW. 2 weeks later and I have OBVIOUSLY a more even skin, with both acne scars and sun spots faded. This product WORKS.

                            What we can say is the ingredients in Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum are very active which is why many people see their dark spots start to diminish within 1 week.

                            Typically we recommend using Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum at night with the moisturizer on top of it. For day we like to recommend Advanced Active Radiance Serum http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod1320160, with the moisturizer on top of that. It helps to reduce the pigmentation while giving you a radiant glow.

                            Melasma can be very difficult to treat. Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum can help to reduce the hyperpigmentation caused by melasma. Because the sun can make the melasma worse we recommend using a Broad Spectrum SPF 30 like Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30 http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod1650195.

                            If it is caused by hyperpigmentation, then yes, you can use it for the underarm. Be sure to wear an SPF of at least 30 during the day time to continue to protect that area.

                            Because a birthmark is not technically hyperpigmentation and generally goes deeper into the skin, we cannot recommend Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum to fad or lighten a birthmark.
