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

      If you are of a darker skin tone, and have issues with evening out your tone due to dark spots, I highly reccommend this product. It works quickly and has had my skin in the best shape ever. After trying so many different products that were not effective, I will say this one is definetely a winner.

      OK product

      By nel

      from florida

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

      I've used this for more than 5 months now. gone through 2 bottles and at first started noticing a change but then after about 2.months the spots stopped fading it's like it stopped working. maybe my skin got used to it Idk definitely not purchasing again though and on the hunt for a new acne scar treatment, I know this isn't for acne scars but I figured I would give this one a try because the clerk said it was a miracle worker for acne scars

                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.

                            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!
