Environmental Shield Intensive-C Radiance Peel instantly reverses environmental aging to enhance luminosity and reveal a noticeably brighter complexion. Glycolic acid exfoliates to accelerate turnover of dark, damaged cells which rids skin of dullness and improves skin texture. Myrtle extract supports natural renewal to improve youthful resilience and elasticity. Vitamin C and Indian fig work together to protect against free radical damage while enhancing skin's clarity and luminosity.

This peel is recommended for use one to two times weekly as a Step 2 treatment in any Murad Environmental Shield regimen. It instantly leaves skin with a luminous, radiant glow as part of Dr. Murad's inclusive health system of care.

Dermatologist developed. Tested on people, not animals. Formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.
Massage evenly over clean face, neck and chest. You may experience a slight tingling sensation. Leave on for up to 10 minutes. Rinse with warm wash cloth and pat dry. Use 1 to 2 times weekly and follow with a Murad Step 3 moisturizer.

    Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Intensive-C Radiance Peel:

    I bought this seeking a product to give my skin a glow since recently it had been looking very dull. The suggestion is to use it twice a week, but I use it 3 times. I have to say I am quite impressed with the results. I usually use it in the shower or when I take a soak leaving on longer than 10 minutes. I like to use it before a night out too. Makes me skin look so much better under makeup. My fine lines look less pronounced and the brightening effect makes my skin look dewy and refreshed.

        I get compliments on my 57 year old skin all the time. I credit part of that to this product. It was recommended by a dermatologist in a magazine I read. I use it about once or twice a month. It's creamy consistency gently takes off the dead layer of skin and makes my skin glow. I rinse it off in the shower with barely warm water then follow with Neutrogena oil free moisturizer with spf 15. I gently exfoliate with a different product about once a week which helps to keep my skin looking fresh, but I always SEE immediate results from this Murad product. Please don't EVER change the formula of this product!

                    Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Intensive-C Radiance Peel:

                    I tend to get hyperpigmentation after an acne breakout, something I loathe entirely. But I've noticed a huge improvement in my skin's texture and tone since using this product. I use it three times a week. I use it in the morning before my regular routine. It has done wonders for the health of my skin. Even when I do break out (thank you, hormonal fluctuations), I notice the marks I used to get do not last as long, if they happen at all. I am so grateful to have found this product!

                                Yes, it is. This would replace using the acne step within your routine for that time of day.

                                This product is designed to even out skin tone and provide radiance. It contains ingredients that help to exfoliate the skin which might give the skin on the face a lighter cast than the rest of your body.
                                It is also designed to brighten the skin which you would not really get if you continue to tan your face.

                                A:

                                Typically we only disclose the percentage of an ingredient only when it is an "active ingredient" in other words, an OTC (over-the-counter), FDA (Food & Drug Administration) approved ingredient. In this product the percentages of ingredients are considered proprietary. What I can share with you is that Dr. Murad creates formulas based on a result not a percentage. Our products are designed to treat a specific concern within the skin, keeping in mind our Connected Beauty approach.
                                We do state however that we follow Cosmetic Ingredient Review Board's (CIR) guidelines in regards to AHA (Glycolic and Lactic Acid) percentages and pH levels for safety. The guidelines are as follows: have up to 10% and not be lower than pH 3.5.

                                Yes, it can because of the glycolic acid and other brightening ingredients. Another product that would help in fading dark spots is Rapid Age Spot & Pigment Lighting Serum. Item #: 2082341

                                You would use this product 1-3 times a week. This does not exfoliate physically like with beads. If you want the benefit of both types of exfoliation just switch them out. You can use your regular exfoliater 1 time a week and the Intensive-C Radiance Peel 1 time a week.

                                We recommend using the toner after you have washed the peel off and before you follow up with your serum and moisturizer.

                              If I use the Rapid Age Spot & Pigment Lightening Serum (nightly) and the Advanced Active Radiance Serum (daytime), do I continue to use those products when using this one (peel), or do you skip on those days?

                                It is recommended that the Intensive-C Radiance Peel would replace your Step 2 on the day you use it. For example, if you were to use it in the morning, then you would not need to use your Advanced Active Radiance Serum. If you were to use it at night, then you would skip using your Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum for that night.
