Backstory: I had a really bad breakout once I hit my 20s and it caused a ton of dark spots BUT I started using this serum and no lie, I didn't see results until maybe a month in but it works!! My spots have faded almost completely on both sides of my face. I've been using this for 4 months now faithfully. Little expensive but totally worth it

After using the product for just one week I saw improvements in my complexion! It was so gentle on my skin and went on very smoothly. It didn't leave a stinky residue like other products! I would definitely recommend this product to others!

Life savor! I'v suffered from acne as a child and unfortunately, my face is proof; but not for long. I'v seen incredible improvement on the scars left on my chin. I'v been using it for over a month now and can't believe how well this product works. I'm so happy I picked this one up!

I love this product. I had/ sometimes still have terrible acne. This product always works. It take about 2 and 1/2 months to really see the affects, but they're amazing. You can only use this product 3 mouths at a time then you have to wait 3 more mouths before you can continue again.

I had a huge acne breakout a month or two after I turned 20 ( I never really suffered from acne throughout high school so it really affected me) I would bother my face and wear makeup all the time, after taking proper care my acne cleared but I had awful scarring covering my entire face, my acne being gone didn't really do anything as it had left a trace. I went to sephora and got a sample of the post acne spot treatment and it worked a miracle in just 1 use! I absolutely swear by it! My skin is almost restored back to its original tone.

This stuff worked wonders on my dark marks. I used it for around six months along with the pigment brightening serum and the majority of my acne mark had disappeared. I still struggle with acne but I no longer have many spot after using these two serums.

This product is super effective! Use every night or every other night, depending on sensitivity! Use only at night because it does make your skin more sensitive to the sun! It really does reduce the appearance of old acne scarring!!g

Murad is one of the only brands I would use on my face because let's face it its the first thing people see when they look at you. Even though I'm an adult I still have break outs and this gel made them fade away faster than I thought.
