          Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Advanced Active Radiance Serum:

          I used last year. It was the only thing I have tried that actually provided immediate radiant results. But I mean the quickest and most highest of radiance. I have tried lancome genefique and this is 100 times better. This is also expensive. It is lightweight. Does not cause pimples to my combo skin and I used as directed. I recommend you use in the fall and winter since in the sunny days you will be counter acting this product results. I think the price is too high, but it's worth it. I'm sure I will find the same type of results for cheaper price. It's out there......just let me know.

              Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Advanced Active Radiance Serum:

              This serum gets a mixed review from me. It's lightweight, feels great going on and smells awesome. For me, it worked best at night, during the day it was a little too greasy under makeup and made my foundation "separate" - even with primer and with a variety of different foundations. I didn't notice an immediate improvement like I have with some other products and the price is just too high for 1 ounce for the average performance.

                    Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Advanced Active Radiance Serum:

                    I have to say this is worth the money to purchase this serum. I have tried several higher priced serums that didn't have the results that this serum does. I really noticed a difference after the first week of using. I stopped using it and could really tell a difference in my skin, it wasn't as bright, clear, or radiant. I love that it's a multitasker, in that it helps with reducing redness, clears the skin, gives a boost of radiance, and helps with fine lines.

                        We have not had any complaints from users with oily skin. It can leave a glow/radiance on the skin that some people with oily skin might think looks "shiny."

                        A:

                        Dark spots from ingrown hair are similar to dark spots caused by acne. We typically treat those dark spots from ingrown hairs the same way we would treat dark spots from acne. The best product for this concern is the Post-Acne Spot Lightening Gel, http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=prod2146523.
                        It will help to lighten those dark spots. Because it contains glycolic it will help to quicken cellular turnover which will get rid of dead skin faster. This will help to prevent ingrown hairs, too!

                        A:

                        Yes, this serum can be applied twice daily as part of your morning and evening skincare regimen. Alternatively, if you use a renewing/resurfacing night treatment (such as retinol, AHAs, or skin lightening products) like Murad Environmental Shield Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum, you can use Advanced Active Radiance Serum once daily as your morning antioxidant skin treatment.
