This has been very helpful in lightening up my acne scars. I have suffered for acne for too long and was looking for a product to help me with the scaring. This gel is not too thick and does not break me out. Gets absorbed very quickly. Highly recommend.

It does exactly what it says ! You see results within the first few days of using it it's expensive but I've found that murad is so worth the money ! I don't like to use any other skin care brands I've been spoiled their products are all amazing and have real results and do what they say their acne line is the best thing that you could buy for your skin it truly is a smart investment into a good skin care routine

Man, this stuff is pricey. But I'm at the tail end of this bottle and it DEFINITELY met my expectations. I was looking for a mild skin lightening (2% hydroquinone did the trick) because of the acne scarring and dark spots left behind from my teen years. So 5 stars for efficacy but -1 for the price. My skin is much brighter than when I first started!

Had a really bad break out a couple of years ago and decided to try something different from my usual skin care products. Murad helped clear my skin in less that 30 days. This lightening gel helped get rid of all of my scaring. Definitely need to get my hands on this again

Ive been using this product faithfully for the past few months and have noticed redness starting to go away on areas where a blemish had occured. Doesn't burn at all which is nice and goes on clear and thin which makes it very easy to wear during the day

This product is essential if you have reaccouring acne like me. On my left cheek I have a trail of dark spots from scaring left by my acne and I have tried everything, from here to kingdom come to clear it, or even just to lighten it! But now I have this little beauty and my spots are almost completely gone! Vanished! Not even visible! You have to try this product for yourself. You will not regret it I promise you!

I have super sensitive skin. Thinking murad being a raved brand.. I failed to test on my hand first!! I dabbed this gel on a freshly healed acne spot and my skin reacted with a vengeance! The outcome...the spot I tried to removed turned to a dark spot cause the product practically burned my skin. 👎

This product really zaps dark spots and scars left by incessant pimple popping when I know I shouldn't. If you're like me than this product is for you! Simply apply to the affected area and watch as the area becomes lightened over the next couple weeks!

This is a miracle ! It changed my skin totally . I have uneven complexion and dark spots due to acne . This kind of evened out my complexion and it's slowly working on those black spots too but it's a little strong and expensive ! But I think it's worth it
