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.

Murad Post Acne Spot Lightening Gel is suggested for people looking to:

  • Fade acne scars and eliminate acne dark spots
  • Soothe inflamed skin
  • Improve clarity and brightness

Benefits: Post-Acne Spot Lightening Gel quickly helps clear skin of post-acne pigment spots and acne spots with a triple-action formula . Hydroquinone, the strongest skin-lightening agent available without a prescription, fades unwanted pigmentation. Willow Bark and Tea Tree Leaf extracts help purify skin. Finally, AHA’s exfoliate your skin to boost clarity and skin tone.

How to Use: Every evening after cleansing, massage a thin layer of the lightening gel over face, neck and chest. For optimal results, follow with an oil-free sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more during the day or Skin Perfecting Lotion at night.

I've tried this product and to be honest I did not love it. It did nothing for my acne. It was expensive and I'm disappointed because it did not help out my skin.

I really thought i would love this product. I used it for about 2 months, but my post acne spots didn't really go away. My dark spots never really got lighter even thk i used it every day and night consistently.

I wasn't too impressed with this. It didn't seem to help my acne scarring what so ever. None of the Murad acne products, with the exception of their toner, have really worked for me.

I had spots from hormonal acne. This took a few weeks to start working, but afterwards it actually diminished most of the dark spots. It's even better if you exfoliate before using.

I swear by this acne cream. It is a definite miracle worker. I apply this before I go to bed on some of my acne scars. They are significantly faded when I wake up in the morning!

Murad is always a product I've seen on the shelves and was never drawn to it because of its packaging. It's not very inviting. However this serum did help lightening my dark acne scars that are left on my chin

I first got this in a 1 month trial kit and after noticing the affect it had on my skin, 1 month turned into 2 years and I haven't looked back! It's so easy to use and I put it on almost every night before going to sleep. I HIGHLY recommend!

I had high hopes for this product after using all other products from this skincare line. But this one disappointed me greatly. After using this treatment for a few days i started getting a dry patch and my spots didn't get any lighter !
