After review this product online and reading all of the rave reviews I decided to purchase this serum. Only after a few uses I noticed that my dark sun spots lightened up or completely went away. I would highly recommend this product if you suffer from malasma or have sun spots.

        Comments about Murad Travel Size Environmental Shield Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum:

        I read many reviews on this, both good and bad, before I decided purchasing the TRAVEL SIZE bottle. I would not recommend anyone buy full size bottles if they are just starting out on a product and I'm glad I didn't. It was a waste of money because it simply does not work. I used it for about 2 and a half weeks consistently and my dark spots haven't budged. To make matters worse, it broke me out giving me little white heads in the area where I applied the serum, including my NECK. No no no stay away from this product if you're trying to clear your skin!

                    Yes! You would use your normal acne regimen in the morning. Then, in the evening use the Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum as your evening treatment instead of the Acne Clearing Solution.

                    A:

                    You only want to use one treatment in the morning and one at night. So you would use the Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum or the Granactiv retinoid in squalene in the evening. We do not recommend using the Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum in the morning.

                    A:

                    Rapid Age Spot and Lightening Serum is not designed for use close to the eyes. Genetically dark circles can be challenging to treat. I'd suggest using an eye cream with sunscreen such as Essential -C Eye Cream to help prevent more pigmentation.

                    Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum is designed to help lighten pigmentation spots. Those with sensitive skin should always patch test products before adding them to their daily routine. I would suggest patch testing for a few days and if you're skin doesn't react then I would start using it every other night for a week then gradually increase to nightly followed with a daily sunscreen.

                    Rapid Age Spot and Lightening Serum is designed to be applied over the entire face. I defiantly recommend using a moisturizer with a sunscreen. Keep in mind most sunscreens are active for only about 2-3 hours so reapply as necessary.
