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.

Murad Post Acne Spot Lightening Gel is suggested for people looking to:

  • Fade acne scars and eliminate acne dark spots
  • Soothe inflamed skin
  • Improve clarity and brightness

Benefits: Post-Acne Spot Lightening Gel quickly helps clear skin of post-acne pigment spots and acne spots with a triple-action formula . Hydroquinone, the strongest skin-lightening agent available without a prescription, fades unwanted pigmentation. Willow Bark and Tea Tree Leaf extracts help purify skin. Finally, AHA’s exfoliate your skin to boost clarity and skin tone.

How to Use: Every evening after cleansing, massage a thin layer of the lightening gel over face, neck and chest. For optimal results, follow with an oil-free sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more during the day or Skin Perfecting Lotion at night.

Murad is probably the best brand if you struggle with acne. Their products work and they really have helped to clear my skin. I love this gel too. It will make your pimples or blemishes disappear.

This product contains hydroquinone which is what helps reduce the appearance of dark spots/acne marks. It is a very sticky product and sits on top of the skin like a film. It doesn’t smell great and I saw no real results while using this

Acne scars are my biggest complaint on my skin. I get cystic acne so the scarring gets really deep. This is the first product i found that made a difference but wasn’t as harsh as some vitamin C products
