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

    I have not been using this product very long and I have already noticed that my sunspots are getting lighter. I will say that a little goes a long way. Which is great since it is a little pricey. I will continue to use this product until it is gone and hopefully I will get the results I am looking for. So far I am very pleased.

            Been using this for a month and have not seen any changes with hyperpigmentation due to old acne scars. And yes, I did take before pics. Will continue to use this, probably use up the whole bottle and if it ends up working I will edit this review.

                  I was excited to try this product because the reviews are wonderful. I used it for about a week, applying at night after my cleansing routine. After night two it began to break me out in white heads. The smell was not good, but it was tolerable if it was going to lighten my age spots. I didn't use it long enough to properly note any results; I returned it after one week of use.

                    I have sun damage appearing on my face from my youth days in the sun. This Murad product states it will lighten the pigmentation. I used this for 4 weeks as directed and there ARE NO POSITIVE RESULTS of lightening at all. If there was a little lightening, I would be satisfied, but there was no lightening ever so much. I am highly dissatisfied with this product with the understanding every person is different from the other with results.

                          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.

                                From Murad:

                                "We understand you want to know the amount of glycolic acid within this product, however what defines the strength of an AHA is not the percentage amount it is the pH. It's a proprietary blend and we follow the Cosmetic Ingredient Review Board's standard of retail products no higher than 10% and no lower than a pH of 3.5.

                                "At Murad we use powerful ingredients that give you the desired results. In Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum it is the combined effect of the 3 high performance ingredients, glycolic acid, hydroquinone and hexapeptide, that makes this product so powerful."

                                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!
