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.

Murad makes amazing skincare. The acne line has worked wonders for my skin. The spot gel is very effective and it works very fast . It is bery grntle on the skin and can be purchased at Sephora. I have repurchased products from this line plenty of times and I recommend it to everyone who has acne prone skin

Amazing especially for me because I pick my face which has been a horrible result for my skin leaving me with redness and blemishes that don’t go away! Thanks to Murad my spots have lightened and my complexion looks amazingly improved

I actually like this product I received a sample size at ulta to try out and I noticed a difference in my scars however I haven't used it long enough to completely get rid of my scars because I only had the sample size. I do recommend using sunblock after because the scars will come back deeper if hi don't

This was the first product I tried in Murad line. I heard great things about it! So far I am impressed. It's a nice smooth gel that you can feel tingle on your skin. It's very gentle and doesn't have a chemically smell like some other scheme creams! I've noticed less black heads but time will tell how this really makes my face look and feel!

I would totally purchase this whole line again!  I could put this on followed by the moisturizer and all and I mean all of my dark acne marks were erased. They made it look so easy. Again, this is a legit 31 day process. So don't be discouraged if you don't see results after the first 2 weeks of use.

I'm on my second bottle of this now! What a great product, really has helped a lot of my scarring and dark spots created by old acne have faded away because of using this every night. The only reason I have it 4 stars is because the bottles pump gave me a hard time on my first purchase of it.

When I first bought this product I love it! It worked perfectly and how it was supposed to. Then for some reason it stop working for me. I stop using it last month but I am planning to incorporate it in my skin routing again. I am not disappointed because our skin is constantly changing.
