        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!

                  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.

                      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.

                            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 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!
