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

Finally, AHA’s exfoliate your skin to boost clarity and skin tone.

I had dark spot on my face from acne scaring and I was trying to find a product for months to try and lighten them or even get rid of them. When I heard of this product I decided to try it and it worked for a while but no permanent results that I was hoping for.

This acne treatment is the best when I get visible pimples on my face. I have recently purchased this so I cannot go deep in to the product but so far I have been loving it and what It offers and I would recommend this to teenagers with acne prone skin

My sister had bought the acne treatment pack and it came along with the serum. I had started getting acne around my hairline so I used the Murad Acne Package and it helped so much. My skin always felt clean and fresh following each step for every product.

Amazing! I've used the entire acne line from murad! the cleanser is great, and this post acne lighting gel gives a little tingle but is effective. It won't work over night and needs to be fully used but give it time and results will follow.

I have been using this on my acne marks and it is great. My sport fade so much faster, as I get the occasional breakout once in a while. And my skin looks overall more even and bright. Great for anyone with acne marks.

Good texture, i don't very like the scent of it. I like that it doesn't make my skin dry or itchy but i can't say that i saw amazing results.
