I suffer from moderate acne, on my face chest and back, my favorite acne line is Murad, I swear by it! The product lasts more than 6 months, with being used twice a day. I like how the product works long active

As for lighting acne spots this did not do anything whatsoever. I finished the whole 1oz container and I did not see a difference in the appearence of my acne spots at all. The only thing I did notice when I used this serum is that it does help the acne on my skin decrease in size overnight.

This stuff is great. I have acne scars and red spots from acne when I was younger I've tried so many things, nothing's made a difference until I tried this. Now I'm a religious user

I have severe acne scaring because I used to pick at my face. This mural spot lightening gel has helped my scaring diminish! Instead of giant circles where the scars were, they're now pale and nearly invisible! If you have any type of facial scaring. This product is perfect for you!

Overpriced product, that let me down hard. It burnt my skin, causing irritation. I didn't notice any difference in acne scarring- young or old marks. I am really disappointed in this and don't recommend it for anyone with even slightly sensitive skin.

I've been using the post-acne spot lightening gel for about 6 months now and I am seeing a difference. Its prevents new scars from forming but some of my more severe scars are taking longer to be affected by this gel. I like it for myself but it is not a cure-all in a short amount of time.
Im sure this works good as I did notice some lightening on my acne spots, it just felt too harsh on my skin but my skin is very sensitive so that could just be me. This is really pricey so hold on to receipt till you know for sure your skin is having a good reaction to it it is strong.

I used this product a while ago for my acne, in which it helped sooth the skin a little. It was very pricey but overall effective. I wasn't disappointed but I was expecting more from this product due to the fame and price. I would recommend this product for friends with mild acne only.

I've been using this for about 3 weeks and I've already began to see results. It out does my expectations seeing as I though results wouldn't show until a month of diligent use. Would definitely recommend.

This is amazing it definitely competes with the Kate Somerville acne on stop treatment. What I notice is that the Murad makes your acne red while the Kate actually take the redness away. While the Murad does work I wouldn't really recommend this product for some one that wants a quick fix, it takes time to kill the acne.
