Awesome for A Glowing Complexion

By The Beauty Gal

from Atlanta, GA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Starter Kit:

I really love this set. I wasn't committed to buying the full-size versions because Murad is quite expensive, but I am completely satisfied with the sample sizes I've been using. I can definitely tell that my skin is brighter, my acne marks/spots are beginning to fade as well. The scent is really light and fresh, and perfect for summer. These are loaded with Vitamin C, which is amazing for your skin and the moisturizer is NOT greasy, even though it has SPF 30.

I wish the spot reducer worked faster but I'm Gering there. My spots are fading. I'm getting ready to either buy another set or a full size for each item in the set.

    By Paula

    from El Paso Texas

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Easy To Use

    Cons

    • Does not moisturize
    • Expensive
    • Just Like Any Other Cream
    • Not Effective

    Best Uses

    • Women

    Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Starter Kit:

    I was recommend the product by different employees at Ulta was told that they use it. They all had good things to say and their skin looks good and healthy. I was told it was the best in the market. I am 55 years old and believe me I have bought into every product that is out there. The kit says I would see results in one week. I thought wow every other product says 3-4 weeks. But I was disappointed when I did not see any changes my skin does not feel hydrated nor has the acne scares faded away.

    Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Starter Kit:

    This is a great product for the discoloration I have on my face and neck, I can see the brightness company back slowly but surely. I wish the bottles where just a little bite bigger to where you can get more usage out of it before, actually buying the product at regular price.

    • Q:

      Is this product non comedogenic?
      Asked on 4/11/2015 by Amber from California

      1 answer

      • Brand Expert

        A:

        Murad does not use ingredients known to clog pores in any of our formulas. Therefore we do feel confident that all of our products are unlikely to clog pores when used as directed.

    • Q:

      Does this product contain licorice root extract? I've read it's effective for diminishing brown spots.
      Asked on 3/15/2015 by kitbro from Raleigh NC area

      1 answer

      • Brand Expert

        A:

        Yes, Advanced Active Radiance Serum does contain Licorice extract which can diminish brown spots. Both Essential-C Cleanser and Essential-C Day Moisture contain Vitamin C which is also known for brightening and improving the skin's radiance and protecting the skin from free radical damage. Plus this kit contains Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum our number 1 product for reducing brown spots. It contains Hydroquinone which fades dark spots, age spots and freckles, evening skin tone to reveal a clearer, brighter complexion while prohibiting future pigment formation. People typically start to see the difference in their skin after using this system for about 2-3 weeks.

    • Q:

      Is it OK to use a pore refiner along with this product in the morning? Would you put the pore refiner on before or after the moisturizer?
      Asked on 10/13/2014 by just a mom from Hudson, WI

      1 answer

      • Staff Reviewer

        A:

        Yes, you can certainly use a pore refining product in conjunction with this regimen. Murad Pore Reform T-Zone Pore Refining Serum (Item #: 2263436) is designed to be applied prior to moisturizer, but if you are using a pore refining primer, apply your pore refining primer after your moisturizer for best results.

    • Q:

      Is this regimen to be used only in the AM? If so, what should be used in the PM?
      Asked on 8/8/2014 by JK from WI

      1 answer

      • Staff Reviewer

        A:

        While Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is best for daytime use, all other products within this kit can be used twice daily, A.M. and P.M. Environmental Shield Essential-C Night Moisture is a wonderful P.M. moisturizer to use in conjunction with this regimen:

    • Q:

      What are the steps the serum and active radiance both say step two.
      And do you use the day moisture in the morning? Or after the three step routine
      Asked on 3/30/2014 by Joanna from Visalia, CA

      1 answer

      • Staff Reviewer

        A:

        Rapid Age Spot & Pigment Lightening Serum can be applied as a targeted spot treatment to affected areas only, or applied all over the face. We recommend applying Rapid Age Spot & Pigment Lightening Serum prior to Active Radiance Serum, even though both are labeled Step 2.

        Yes, apply Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30 I PA+++ as Step 3 each morning, after cleansing and applying your Step 2 treatment products.
