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

Manager recommended the Rapid serum for a dark spot on my check that developed after an accident. Starter kit was advertised the next week. That would have been a better introduction for me instead of just the one product. I now have it all and love the results. Getting lighter every day including the dark circles and the liver spots. Even the pores are getting smaller and a more even skin tone.

      I have tried nearly every product on the market and wasted hundreds of dollars to find this product! Within a week, I saw dramatic difference in my acne scars and numerous dark spots. After a few weeks, nearly all of my marks were gone and I am now able to just use it when new ones appear. I will not be without it again!

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

            Great GREAT product! I use it nightly under moisturizer and I've had no side effects (redness, itching, etc). Within a week - A WEEK - my largest sun spot that was unaffected by multiple laser treatments in a plastic surgeon's office had noticeably faded !! A month later it has faded 50% and I found I no longer have to use concealer to cover my other freckles.
            I am buying another bottle ASAP !!

              I used the product in the night. In the morning I use Smart box primer for dark spots then my moisturizer and sunscreen. After that I proceed with my makeup routine. It took me like 2 months to see dramatic results. Discipline and constancy is the key.

                This works, I've tried others and nothing. I noticed my brown spots have faded 50% and all I used was a small bottle from a $15 murad sample kit.
                I plan on buying the larger bottle to fade out the spots I have and to prevent future ones. Great!!! You must use a sunscreen with this product.

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

                I wanted to give this product a try because it had good reviews and seemed fairly popular. My goal was to lighten up some of my acne scars. I was very dissatisfied with my results. I used the whole bottle, which ran out very quickly. My skin didn't seem to lighted up at all from this product. I would not waste my money on it again. I will go back to using the Dark Spot Corrector by Clinique. It is much more effective.

                  I use to have large sun spots on my face along with freckles. By using this product everyday my complexion is so much better. even my freckles are faded. the large sunspot (which covered half my face) is gone. this stuff really works.

                      Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum has not been tested for this use; however, it can potentially help mitigate discoloration and redness. It will not diminish texture or scarring, such as keloids.

                      This product is formulated with 2% hydroquinone, a skin lightening active that helps fade dark pigmentation due to melasma, sun damage, and other causes. In a Murad sponsored study, 85% of users saw spots lighten in just 1 week.

                      This product can be applied directly to the affected area as a spot treatment, or applied in a thin, even layer to face, neck, chest, and hands. This product can be applied nightly, or twice a day (daily and nightly) depending on your skin's tolerance. Remember to wear daily SPF to protect against recurring dark spots!
