      Comments about Murad Bright Beginning 30 Day Discovery Kit:

      This is the first time I've used Murad products and brightening skin products in general and let me say I love this kit! My problem has always been acne And I've never really realized how dull the rest of my face is. I've used for about 2-3 months now and I see such a difference! I wouldn't say it has helped with my break outs, but I have hormonal acne that is tough to zap so I wasn't expecting too much of a change there. I wouldn't expect the full 30 day use from the night time products, a bit too small, but definitely worth the buy!!

        Comments about Murad Bright Beginning 30 Day Discovery Kit:

        I've recently returned to Murad after checking out some other face products (Just because they were new... sorry Murad). I'm so happy that I'm back to using their products. I must admit that they are pricey but they are so worth it. I'm 61 years old and using the products, especially the youth serum, evens my skin tone, minimises my pores and fills my crow feet lines! The sampler kit is more affordable but I'll be buying the full size products as I get more money. Love it... believe me. I get a lot of compliments on my skin tone... thanks Murad!

          Comments about Murad Bright Beginning 30 Day Discovery Kit:

          I've heard a lot of good things about Murad products and I was SO excited to try this only to be horribly let down. This did absolutely nothing for me, if anything it dried out my skin horribly and was the cause of a lot of recent, very bad break outs. Waste of money.

            I was really hoping going for a more expensive product would yield results, but sadly this did not. I have dark spots along my jaw line that i was hoping to fade. This did nothing! I used the entire system consistently for the thirty days. My skin did not appear brighter at all either. I gave it a two because i like that it's a complete set and sunscren wasn't greasy.

                  A:

                  You only want to use one treatment at a time. So, if you are using the retinol do not use the Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum.

                I live in southern California and I sunburn horribly. I want to start using the Rapid Lightening 30 day kit, but I need/want a much stronger, longer lasting sunscreen or block. Reapplying sunscreen & my makeup isn't practical when I'm visiting customers. What product woyld you recommend in place of the SPF 30 Day Moisturizer? Thanks for your guidance!

                  A:

                  An SPF 15 protects against 94% of UVB rays whiles an SPF 30 protects against 97%. Anything higher is only about a 1% increase which can provide people with a false sense of security. In light of the various factors that can decrease protection we do recommend reapplying once every 2 hours to maintain a constant level of protection, regardless of the SPF. Given you wear makeup, you can use a translucent mineral powder with SPF to maintain coverage without changing your look.

                  A:

                  To receive the best results possible you want to use the regimen every day. In the morning you want to cleanse your skin with the Essential C Cleanser and then apply the Essential C Day Moisture SPF 30. In the evening, use the Essential C Cleanser, the Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum and the City Skin Overnight Detox Moisturizer.

                  A:

                  Please be advised that while Murad undergoes all possible safety testing for the quality and efficacy of our products, we have not conducted specific testing for pregnant or lactating women. Dr. Murad recommends that women who are pregnant or lactating consult their physician before using any Murad products. Hydroquinone is definitely not advised and that is an ingredient in the Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum.

                  All Murad products contain antioxidants, anti inflammatories and hydrators to prevent irritation. The regimen can be used. When you have skin showing an inflammatory response it is always best to perform a patch test.

                Hydroquinone is a bleaching agent so this will help with Dark spots but is it safe to go out in the sun without a hat whilst using this product?

                  A:

                  You are correct, Hydroquinone is a lightening agent. Rapid Age Spot and Lightening Serum should be used over the entire face nightly and sun safety is a must. If you are spending a prolonged amount of time outside I would recommend reapplying your sunscreen and a hat would be beneficial.
