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.

            I had high hopes for this product. I's adequate but not performing up to the standards I'd hoped. I am not noticing a big decrease in color of the brown spots on my face. I am in the hopes that it just needs more time.
            My face feels good and the lotion is doing what is expected but the repair serum isn't by a long shot. I probably won't pay this kind of money for this product again.

              I bought the starter kit to see how the products worked before I dropped a lot of money. After 3 weeks, I saw no difference. Not going to buy the brand now.

                Not enough product for a months use. Didn't understand why they had two number two steps so alternated. This is a very dry climate in southern Utah. While using this product my skin maintained the moisture. I Will be 71 the 28th of this month and I'm glad I found a product that works. Need a night cream from Murad next.

                  I have only been using this product for a few days and I already see results. My sun spots (freckles) have already started to lighten. I will be purchasing the full size version of this. The smell isn't the best but I can get past it.

                    • Q:

                      Does this product contain licorice root extract? I've read it's effective for diminishing brown spots.

                        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?

                        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.

                        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:

                      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

                        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.
