I feel like I should be the poster child for this serum, it has done wonders for my skin. I grew up in South Florida and was horrible about wearing sunscreen, so at 25 I am dealing with hyper pigmentation. I also have some pretty bad acne scars from popping pimples too. I began using this serum two months ago in conjunction with retinol, microneedling, and alpha/beta-hydroxy acids. My skin has done a complete 180 since starting this regimen. My skin tone is much more even. Combined with "active" skin care (that increases cell turnover) this serum will work its magic. Alone, I believe it would do the same although the results might not be so dramatic. WOULD RECOMMEND TO ANYONE!

Hydroquinone seems to be a controversial product, but it really does work. If you dive into the literature on it, all of the adverse effects were found in people who had used this at prescription strength (10%) for many many months to years. This serum is only 2% so the risk of ochronosis is negligible if you are trying to treat hyperpigmentation specifically.

The best dark spot lightening serum!!! Before this i've tried another products to help my skin get rid of the dark spots, is not that my skin is very bad, but i suffer from hormonal acne once a month when i get my period, and i know i should not touch the pimples, but i get very anxious and that's the reason why i have been left with marks on my face, so for a long time i've tried to find a product that really help me, and this is it!!!

This is my first bottle, but i don't have too much product left, and i'll definitely repurchase it again!!! It's a little bit pricey, but it's worth it!!! I have seen so much improvement in my skin and now the dark spots are almost invisible in such a short time.

Guys! So I got myself a LED mirror and I wanted to die whenever I started noticing how many age/sun spots I had! I honestly believed they were just freckles but no honey lol! I went to work (Sephora) and started asking around what serums, moisturizers I should use and sure enough, this products came about. I took a sample, enough to use for a week or so and i noticed such a difference within a couple of days! I used as directed and I guess since it’s a serum, it really penetrated into my skin so quickly! I was amazed. From then on, I highly recommended it to my clients whose main skin concerns were age and sun spots! I must add, you definitely need to use an spf with this product or else you will not improve as quickly as you’d like.

I have tried this product multiple times with no results at all. As I stated before in my last Murad product review, I used to work for Massage Envy and received a ton of Dr Murad products to sample. I wanted to try this one for some dark spots I had on my face left over from acne. I applied every night for a month with no result. I went to purchase the full product which was $40 and continued for 2 more months with no result. I would apply on my dark spots every night. It would make my face super oily and leave a white residue. This product did not work for me at all. 🤷🏾‍♀️

Use this product carefully! It contains a skin bleaching agent. This ingredient has been banned it several countries. America has not regulated it. It has been linked to cancer and increased photo sensitivity. It can also cause irreversible hypo-pigmentation in the skin.

It works well with regular, monitored use. It begins brightening the skin within a week or less.

Do not couple with harsh exfoliates or chemical treatments unless a skin health or medical professional advise otherwise.

I highly recommend an SPF of 50 to ensure you are well protected from the sun.

I got the full size after I had used a trial size product which faded sun spots on my face in a week. Interestingly enough, I couldn't get the same results from the full size, but it could be my fault since I don't use every night. I don't like the sticky feeling on my face and the smell especially if I use another product right after. If I wait about 5 to 10 mins and then use the other product I put on my face, feeling and the smell is more bearable. I recommend others to try a sample first before purchase the full size since it is not that cheap.

I suffer from dark spots due to acne. I was hesitant to buy this product due to the price point but I was willing to try anything at this point. I did notice a difference in the darkness of the spots and how quickly they would lighten. I believe this also helps with keeping my existing acne at bay. I like how you can put this over your entire face so it’s easy to apply. I would recommend to anyone suffering with dark spots

So many acne scars are left over still. I bought this in hopes that it would lighten up my acne scars and WOW! It really did. I use this at night as instructed and when I wake up my acne scars are significantly lighter. I even use this on current acne that I have and I notice that those shrink as well. The packaging for this product is in a glass bottle so just be mindful of that. Other than that this product is amazing and I will definitely repurchase when the time comes

I recently purchased this product for the first time because a) I've taken an advanced interest in saving/protecting my skin, and b) it was on sale. I wanted a serum that would target the dark spots I've accumulated because of the sun, acne, and hormones. It was kind of expensive, but I really wanted to try it.

Upon first use, I immediately liked it. It has very little, if any fragrance at all, and does not feel sticky like other serums I've used in the past. It dries immediately, and when used with a moisturizer, does not feel heavy on my skin. I was really skeptical about their claim to diminish dark spots (I've been disappointed by similar products in the past), but I've immediately noticed a difference...not a complete removal, but a lightening/fading of the spots. I'm really looking forward to seeing how this progresses with use. The only reason I didn't give it a full five stars is because I've only been using this product for a couple days....but so far I'm happy! I will definitely spend the money and continue to purchase this product if it continues to provide satisfying results!

I began using Murad to target sun damage and melasma.  This serum was very gentle and easy to apply.  A little bit goes a long way and I love that you can purchase all of the lightening products together.  They even have travel sizes! I originally bought this brand to get away from a direct sales line I used and not only has it saved me money, but I continue to use it because it has been effective in treating my target areas.

Roughly how long has it taken you guys to reduce pigmentation of #agespots using #Murad Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening serum? What is the longest amount of time before you give up on an age spot product to try another brand?
