This powerful skin-lightening gel treatment (featuring Hydroquinone) fades post-acne skin discoloration and acne dark spots that linger after breakouts have healed. Plant-derived extracts help keep skin clear and restore clarity and tone.

  • Fade acne scars and eliminate acne dark spots

I used for 2 weeks and saw what I thought was a difference. But I'm not going to knock it without using it for more than a month. Don't use a lot of it will dry your face out, really, use a TINY amount.

Gets rid of dark spots. You see results after a few days of using the product. Worth the price and does what it says its going to do. I have repurchased this product twice and will continue to use it.

Helps prevent future acne. Helps lighten new scars and old scars! I have really dark acne scars because I am a picker (that’s a no no) and this is the only product that has truly helped lighten them.

Worked well on both acne scars and marks from a dog attack. Fairly gentle on sensitive skin but didn’t work as well as I’d expect for the price. Will finish bottle but probably won’t purchase again.

I’ve used this on my skin and have seen some improvements, however I’ve stopped using it due to the skin lightening chemical that’s found in it. I’d rather stick to something a little more natural.

this is a must have product for anyone who is dealing with acne scars. mine aren't as bad as others but i definitely had scars that were noticeable and made me hide my skin. i used many products that were targeted for acne scars and none of them seemed to work. i love this product because now i feel so much confident about my skin and i don't have to hide my acne scars with full coverage foundation. i use this overnight, every night and in the morning i use spf lotion to hydrate my skin to protect it from the sun. the product is a little on the pricy side but i totally think that it's worth it. a little goes a long way and after a month of using this product, i still have more than half of the bottle left. depending on how my skin looks after the bottle i currently have is finished, i will definitely buy again if i need it.

Haven't used this cream long enough to see a significant difference, but I have noticed some difference on the appearance of my acne scars. It was a good value, not too expensive. Maybe with prolonged usage, I'll notice much more of a difference.

Murad products don’t seem to like my skin much. I have tried a few of their products and this one is added to the list of gels, serums, and cleansers that don’t work well for me.
