I love this product I always use it in the morning and at night on my problem areas. It is very effective it doesn't dry out your face to much. It's a little pricey but to how good it is I wouldn't mind paying it. I don't see any room for improvement. Very good product.

WORKS LIKE A CHARM!! SO suggest this if you have had problems with acne. IT works amazing, no disappointments. It is very gentle and soft to the skin, great packaging, not a problem at all! Always impresses me! Improvements always are good, but I like it just how it is.

I have tried both The Post Acne spot Lightening gel and Rapid Age Spot Pigment Lightening Serum. The acne one barely lightened my acne scars. The Age spot one worked so much better and faster. Which is odd because they both have the same lightening ingredient. Must be a combo with the other ingredients in the Age Spot one that helps it work better.

Worked well for the first month, but then my acne went back to normal. I was using the face wash and the acne spot treatment. I recommend it for those that do not have serious break outs that never go away. I have tried several products and have not had one that sticks.

My skin is normal but every now and then I'll get a break out. This gel in addition to the Murad Acne facial cleanser really helps nip those breakouts in the bud! Doesn't dry out my skin or cause any damage like redness or rash.

I used the entire Murad line, and the three products together for acne made my skill peel. It was just too intense and dried my skin out without clearing it out. The product was recommended to me by a dermatologist but still it didn't work. This specific product made me feel sticky. I'm sure that others would say differently, but having sensitive skin, it wasn't for me.
