          I really love this moisturizer. Most moisturizers break me out, especially if they contain sunscreen. I have no problem with this at all. Even moisturizers specifically formulated to clear up acne break me out. And almost all sunscreens do too.
          I've read reviews complaining about the smell. I really like it. It's like fresh oranges.

                I have spent a fortune trying to find a good moisturizer and finally found a good everyday one. Noticeable difference in skin quickly. Great for brightening face. I exfoliate twice a day and use it...I have had complements over and over about my skin. The price is reasonable once you see how little you have to use. Originally, I received a tiny sample of it and noticed the difference prior to using it all.

                    No complaints. Smells great. Moisturizes really well. I suffer from combination skin, slightly drier than oily but it works and it keeps my skin moisturized.

                      I've been using it for a long time, I only have to buy it once or twice a year! It is quite pricy but after hearing about the product name and seeing that the persons skin looked good I bought it. I have some acne prone skin and I never get breakouts anymore, I have oily skin and it helps some.

                          Does this specific line of Murad products help with acne scarring? If not, which line would be recommended?

                            The first question we would ask is, are you still suffering from acne? If so, we would recommend products from the Acne and Anti-Aging Acne segments of the Murad product line. Specifically, Post Acne Lightening Gel (Item #: 2146523) which has been scientifically proven to lighten discoloration and help combat breakouts and irritation. It contains Hydroquinone which fades post-acne spots and freckles, Willow Bark and Tea Tree Leaf Extracts which help treat blemishes and soothe inflamed skin, and AHAs that exfoliate to restore clarity and tone.

                            If you are not dealing with acne and you are concerned about more than acne scars, like sun damage and environmental aging, then we would recommend this product, Environmental Shield.

                            A:

                            In order to ensure that each Murad product delivers the results it promises, Dr. Murad determines appropriate levels for high-performance ingredients like Vitamin C in each formula. To protect proprietary formulas from imitation, Murad does not disclose the percentage strength of any ingredient unless legally required to do so, typically in the case of an ingredient that is an over-the-counter drug. Accordingly, the amount of Vitamin C in Murad Environmental Shield Essential-C Day Moisture SPF 30/ PA+++ is a trade secret and will not be disclosed.

                          I thought that Vitamin C's potency was diminished if it exposed to light. I am looking at the product and notice that the plastic bottle it is in is opaque/clear. Won't the lotion not be as effective?

                            Excellent question!

                            Essential-C Day Moisture SPF 30 | PA+++ is effective due to 2 factors:

                            1. The Murad recipe, consisting of antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and hydrators, protects and stabilizes the next generation Vitamin C ingredient.

                            2. Ectoin helps to preserve the Vitamin C

                            The combination of the above ingredients ensures the efficacy and stability of Essential-C Day Moisture SPF 30 | PA+++.

                            Hope this info helps!

                            We received this additional info from Murad:
                            "The Vitamin C used in Essential-C Day Moisture is oil soluble as opposed to most Vitamin Cs (and previous generations) that are water soluble. Being oil soluble also makes it much more stable."
