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

I bought this in a sampler back from Murad. I began using it about 3 days ago. After the first night I noticed a couple little red spots. I thought no biggie just my skin getting used to the product. After the 2nd night, I woke up to multiple little pimples in multiple spots on my face. Not too happy. I think I'll take a break for a night or 2 then try again. If this continues it's going back.

    one little travel size bottle faded the dark blue hyperpigmentation I had on my nose from acne about 80%. It was slow working at first but when I paired it with a hyaluronic moisturizer it started working beautifully.

      I use the Murad Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum for acne scars and hyperpigmentation. I have noticed a major reduction in my acne scarring and hyperpigmentation! I also love how a little goes a long way. The travel size lasts me a really long time so I can continue to use it daily. I hope Ulta continues to sell the travel size online for it's reasonable price. It is truly an amazing product.

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

      I'm giving this 2 stars because it did fade my dark acne scars the first week. But after that I noticed a welp on my smile line one morning. (I apply only at night) I thought I had got bitten by a bug. It was also dry & itchy. So I didn't use it til the welp went away, didn't want to put anything on a "bug bite" ... so about 3-4 days later. I put it on again after washing my face that night. Next morning I had a welp on my chin. It was also dry and itchy. I don't know if maybe my skin just got sensitive to it or what but I can't use it anymore. Which is sad because it was working for me.

      I have hyper pigmentation from hormonal acne under my chin. I have used this product before but stopped due its higher price point. Went back to it as I couldn't find any other product as light -weight and as effective. It does take time though to fade the spots.

                I was skeptical because I have tried so many products that did nothing. My girlfriend suggested this because it worked for her, so when I saw the travel size I thought I would give it a try. I have to say it works!! I have malazma that drives me nuts and makes me self conscious. And although it didn't go away completely, I definitely saw a noticeable difference after this trial size. I will definitely keep using.

                    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.

                    A:

                    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.
