    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.

      Really fades brown spots

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

        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.

          This product surprised me. It's fabulous. Has a strange smell though, but that doesn't last long. I thought it was working but then I questioned whether it worked or not, and then I got my answer. EVERYONE said something to me about my skin. How it glowed and was even toned. I use this twice a day (morning and night) before moisturizer. The bottle lasted approximately 3 months. You only need to use one squirt. Happy skin caring!

                Said after 4 weeks would get rid of dark spots. It lightened them a lot but still there. Best I have found. Make sure you wear SPF 30 all the time.

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

                I use this product daily and have seen a dramatic change in the appearance of my skin. I got the sample size in a kit and immediately needed to get a full size bottle. I had used the Clinique version of this product for over a year and didn't see anywhere close to these results. Smell is a little off but completely worth it.

                    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.

                    A:

                    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!
