    Comments about Murad Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum:

    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.

          Comments about Murad 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.

                            "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!
