      60 dollars down the drain! I had high hopes for this product and I was looking forward to seeing the results, but not only did I spend too much money for a useless product but I also would wake up every morning with water pimples, I never experienced this before and thanks to this product now I do!

          Comments about Murad Acne Complex Post-Acne Spot Lightening Gel:

          Wonderful product. I have pale, Irish skin that is super angry over just about anything....I also have acne prone skin.... I've been fighting acne and post-acne scars for years, this topical was recommended by a skin specialist in the store and I will tell you that in combination with their clarifying cleanser and a new moisturizer (Hello, Benefit!) my skin is 98% better than it was 6 months ago. Give it time, it takes patience and re-growth of new skin layers to get turned around, but this WILL help your acne and scarring. My skin is brighter, pores tighter, acne scars lighter and my breakouts are fewer and far between. I also noticed a difference in the few fine lines I've already started to get at 25! Worth the price...a little goes a long way. I'm 2 months into my new bottle and BARELY an inch down.

            I love this product! I broke out horribly one summer and was left with extremely dark acne spots. My skin is very light so it looked it looked severe! I used this product religiously am and pm for 3 months and it really worked!!! My entire complexion lightened and cleared up all those nasty dark spots. I've tried so many things but nothing works like this. You just have to be patient. This product is amazing!

            Comments about Murad Acne Complex Post-Acne Spot Lightening Gel:

            I NEVER do reviews...basically because I try EVERYTHING and very rarely like something enough to spend the time writing about it! I have been through every product on the market including prescriptions. I'm 35 with occasional breakouts...especially during my period. I tried this product on a whim to help with minor scarring because I didn't want to fill my expensive Tazarac prescription. This product CLEARED my skin!!! Even during my menstrual cycle! I couldn't believe it! I have been through 3 bottles and YES it does fade scars SLOWLY over time with 2x day continuous application. So for those who have tried everything else for breakouts...I Strongly RECOMMEND trying this. I also use Murad face wash and toner in the acne kit and found the whole combo works well together with an mild anti ageing moisturizer and my skin does not dry out at all. Bottom line MURAD HAS REALLY IMPRESSED ME!

                I have a few brown spots on my face that I've tried getting rid of using less expensive products. They never worked, so I thought I'd spend a little more money and buy this. It didn't work either. I've purchased a less expensive, prescription product that has 4% hydroquinone in it, and it seems to be doing the trick.

                    I bought this hoping that it would reduce the dark spots / acne scars that I have on my face. I've been using it for a few months, and I have only seen a minimal amount of lightening. To be fair, I've had laser treatment on my spots, too, and it hasn't worked either. I have noticed less breakouts, but I don't know if I can attribute that to this product.

                      I apply the product after cleansing the face 1 -2 times a day. I can see my dark spots fading. Takes longer for the darkest dark spots. Do not put on make-up when wearing this product (make-up will begin to peel).

                          So far I've been using this product for about 3 weeks. After a week i started to see a result with some of my post-acne spots, i was pretty impressed. I use it everynight before i go to bed. It doesn't overdry my skin which i like and it doesnt make me break out more than i already would. I am seeing results but some of the spots still look the same, so hopefully with some more time it will lighten all of them.

                            Can you use this product as a "spot" treatment, ie only on the post acne red spots that you are trying to reduce and not over the entire face?

                              The best practice is to apply all over the face rather than spot treating to avoid a "haloing" effect where the skin appears lighter around the original pigmented area.

                              Yes, you can use this product in conjunction with Murad Acne Clearing Solution. For best results, we recommend using Murad Acne Complex Post-Acne Spot Lightening Gel as your P.M. treatment, applied at bedtime to cleansed skin, followed by your P.M. moisturizer such as Acne Complex Skin Perfecting Lotion. Apply Murad Acne Clearing Solution as your A.M. treatment to cleansed skin, followed by your A.M. moisturizer such as Acne Complex Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15 PA++.

                              Yes, this product can be applied under makeup. Because this product contains exfoliating AHAs, if you use it during the daytime, please make sure to use sun protection to prevent skin damage. We recommend Murad Age Proof Oil-Free Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30/PA+++:
