85% of Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum users saw spots lighten in just 1 week.* Hydroquinone fades dark spots, age spots and freckles while Hexapeptide-2, an advanced skin-lightening peptide helps even skin tone.

          I've only been using this product one week, but have noticed the dark spots and freckles on my face have begun to fade. The product is gentle on my skin and easy to apply. I only use a small amount each day, so I expect the bottle to last a few months or more.

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

              This is the best product I've used for my skin! I'm very acne prone and normally I break out at the thought of a new product but this doesn't break me out. Even better this product actually works, I've had really dark spots since I got acne and now after not even using a whole bottle that all my dark spots and craters in my face are gone and my fave is so soft I love this!

                                It depends on what is causing the redness. This product is designed to deal with hyper pigmentation. Generally this presents itself as a darkening on the skin. It can be caused by many things such as sun damage, acne scarring (darkness) or hormones.

                                If the redness is caused by those things then yes, it could help minimize it.

                                For acne we usually recommend Post-Acne Spot Lightening Gel, http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=prod2146523. It contains botanical acne medications that help to work on current breakouts. People tend to see a difference within 2-3 weeks.

                                If using Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum people usually see a difference in 1-2 weeks.

                                We recommend that you use a sunscreen with a SPF level of at least 30 every day during the day. If you were to apply that every day before going out into the sun, then yet it is very safe and more effective to use.
