Done wonders to my skin!

By TJ

Verified Reviewer

Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Starter Kit:

I have combination skin with redness from my skin being irritated and this stuff has done wonders! I have been using these products for almost a month and I cannot say enough great things. The face wash leaves my skin feeling so clean and refreshed. I use the lotions/serums every night and every morning my face feels so smooth and soft! Downside: the price for full size containers =( I like the starter kit because of the value, however I cringe at the thought having to buy all the products at full size/price.

Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Starter Kit:

I wish Murad would put clearer directions on when and how often to apply "2 Treat and Repair." It is not clear if I should use one followed by the other as well as how often.

I don't recommend it.

By Don't you believe it!

from New Jersey

Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Starter Kit:

Unfortunately, I didn't like this product at all. I have normal skin. Never ever break out. The serum doesn't obsorb at all. I started getting whiteheads and pimples on my face. I looked like I dowsed myself in cooking oil. I had to stop using the cleanser because my checks were starting to look dry and crakced along with fine lines I NEVER had. Once I used my Origins cleanser it got better. Unfortunately, I'm very disappointed. Was hoping this would help with my age spots. It's the only problem I have with my skin. Oh well.

    • Brand Expert

      A:

      This could depend on what all of your concerns might be. People who have oily skin and want to correct or protect from sun damage really love this kit.

  • Q:

    Do I use both step 2's at same time?
    Asked on 3/9/2016 by Jewels from Michigan

    1 answer

      We recommend using Advanced Active Radiance Serum during the day and the Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum at night.

  • Q:

    Will this kit work on women of color skin that deals with dark spots from pigment skin ? I have breakouts a lot on my chin I am 45 hours of age. Ultra gave me three different products to try , I want to know should I use philosophy peel on my face with your product to. Just want some help I spent 135.00 for to products. Please help thanks��
    Asked on 1/3/2016 by Shell from Amarillo Texas

    1 answer

    • Brand Expert

      A:

      Yes, this kit will work on any skin tone. When it speaks to brightening or lightening dark spots it means it will help bring your skin back to the color it was before your skin ever saw the sun. It will not change the skin tone you were born with.

      Since our products have not been tested with using the philosophy peel we cannot speak to the effects it will have on your skin when you use both.

    Will this product help with wrinkles as well as discoloration?
    Asked on 12/27/2015 by Nik

    1 answer

    • Brand Expert

      A:

      Yes, this product will help with wrinkles as well as discoloration. This is one of Murad's ant-aging lines. While it targets discoloration each product is also designed to combat the signs of aging.

  • Q:

    Will this product compliment Bio-Light Therapy?
    Asked on 12/27/2015 by SkinCare Buff from Los Angeles, CA

    1 answer

    • Brand Expert

      A:

      These products have not been tested with Bio-Light Therapy, therefore we are unable to say if they would compliment each other.

  • Q:

    Do these products work well with dry skin and acne scars?
    Asked on 11/9/2015 by Anissa

    1 answer

    • Brand Expert

      A:

      If you are not currently experiencing acne breakouts then, yes, they can help with dry skin and reduce acne scarring.

      Answered on 11/16/2015 by Brand Expert from Murad
  • Q:

    Can these products be used with acne treatment gels like salicylic acid spot treatments?
    Asked on 9/21/2015 by Panchukes from Los Angeles Ca

    1 answer

    • Brand Expert

      A:

      How we would recommend incorporating your salicylic acne treatment into this regimen is by using it in the daytime when you use the Advanced Active Radiance Serum. You would then use the Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum on its own at night.

      We do not recommend layering 2 OTC drugs on top of one another.

      Answered on 9/28/2015 by Brand Expert from Murad
  • Q:

    Does this regimen also help with acne, or only dark spots?

  • 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.
