Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Starter Kit:

Thank you to the dermatologists who have developed Murad environmental! I was a sun goddess as a young adult. I now have actinic keratosis, and blotchy skinskin. I have spent a year trying topicals from my dermatologist with little to no avail. I've use this skin care routine one week and am amazed at the difference I'm seeing! My dermatologist is fired. For a girl that loves the sun, I've sure been in the dark!

Not for me

By Lauren

from Chicago, IL

Verified Buyer

Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Starter Kit:

I bought this sample kit to help with hyperpigmentation and dullness. I only used it for 3 days before I returned it. My skin is on they drier side and I found that this line did nothing for my skin in terms of hydration, in fact, it made it even drier. This would probably be good for someone with a normal to oily skin type.

Quick results

By Aspens Eden Makeup Artistry

from Dayton, Tn

Verified Buyer

Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Starter Kit:

I started using this last Saturday and I can tell a pretty big difference in my complexion. I have awful dark circles and the serum has lightened my circles. That was the first place that I noticed the change. The only issue is a couple of days ago, my cheeks had some sort of rash pop up and its really itchy. I can't say if it's from the product or not, but that's the only new product I am using on my face. Besides that, I love how gentle the cleanser is. It smells great and feels even better. Glad I bought it.

  • Q:

    Will this kit work on women of color skin that deals with dark spots from pigment skin ? I have breakouts a lot on my chin I am 45 hours of age. Ultra gave me three different products to try , I want to know should I use philosophy peel on my face with your product to. Just want some help I spent 135.00 for to products. Please help thanks��
    Asked on 1/3/2016 by Shell from Amarillo Texas

    1 answer

    • Brand Expert

      A:

      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.

      A:

      Yes, this product will help with wrinkles as well as discoloration. This is one of Murad's ant-aging lines. While it targets discoloration each product is also designed to combat the signs of aging.

    Will this product compliment Bio-Light Therapy?
    Asked on 12/27/2015 by SkinCare Buff from Los Angeles, CA

    • Brand Expert

      A:

      These products have not been tested with Bio-Light Therapy, therefore we are unable to say if they would compliment each other.

  • Q:

    Can these products be used with acne treatment gels like salicylic acid spot treatments?
    Asked on 9/21/2015 by Panchukes from Los Angeles Ca

    1 answer

    • Brand Expert

      A:

      How we would recommend incorporating your salicylic acne treatment into this regimen is by using it in the daytime when you use the Advanced Active Radiance Serum. You would then use the Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum on its own at night.

      We do not recommend layering 2 OTC drugs on top of one another.

    Does this regimen also help with acne, or only dark spots?

    Is this product non comedogenic?
    Asked on 4/11/2015 by Amber from California

    1 answer

    • Brand Expert

      A:

      Murad does not use ingredients known to clog pores in any of our formulas. Therefore we do feel confident that all of our products are unlikely to clog pores when used as directed.

  • Q:

    Does this product contain licorice root extract? I've read it's effective for diminishing brown spots.
    Asked on 3/15/2015 by kitbro from Raleigh NC area

    1 answer

    • Brand Expert

      A:

      Yes, Advanced Active Radiance Serum does contain Licorice extract which can diminish brown spots. Both Essential-C Cleanser and Essential-C Day Moisture contain Vitamin C which is also known for brightening and improving the skin's radiance and protecting the skin from free radical damage. Plus this kit contains Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum our number 1 product for reducing brown spots. It contains Hydroquinone which fades dark spots, age spots and freckles, evening skin tone to reveal a clearer, brighter complexion while prohibiting future pigment formation. People typically start to see the difference in their skin after using this system for about 2-3 weeks.

  • Q:

    Is it OK to use a pore refiner along with this product in the morning? Would you put the pore refiner on before or after the moisturizer?
    Asked on 10/13/2014 by just a mom from Hudson, WI

    1 answer

    • Staff Expert

      A:

      Yes, you can certainly use a pore refining product in conjunction with this regimen. Murad Pore Reform T-Zone Pore Refining Serum (Item #: 2263436) is designed to be applied prior to moisturizer, but if you are using a pore refining primer, apply your pore refining primer after your moisturizer for best results.

    Is this regimen to be used only in the AM? If so, what should be used in the PM?

    • Staff Expert

      A:

      While Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is best for daytime use, all other products within this kit can be used twice daily, A.M. and P.M. Environmental Shield Essential-C Night Moisture is a wonderful P.M. moisturizer to use in conjunction with this regimen:
