Since using this product I’ve noticed a drastic change in the color of my acne scarring. After suffering from acne since a teen it is gratifying knowing that I have finally found a product that will clear some of my “insecurities”!

This acne serum worked wonders for my acne scars. It not only cleared up bacteria, but it lightened the dark scarring I have had for 5 years from cystic acne. I would highly recommend this product!

This is amazing!! I love this lightening gel. I put it in the spots where I am more prone to acne. I usually try to use this before going to bed. It is a good product. Any murad products are good!

It works really good, but i guess after a while my skin got used to it and it didn't work as effectively as it did the first couple of weeks. I would definitely recommend it. I suggest you really onlu pyt it on the affected area.

This serum seemed to bleach my skin instead of evening it out. It also left a shiny finish on my skin even after it dried. For this price, I'd say go with an acne-spot serum from another brand.

I love Murad! This stuff really helps my acne pop ups! My only complaint is the size of the bottle and the price. other than that it's a great product and overall brand!

Murad acne gel is okay. It gets lots of attention but it my opinion it doesn't work the best. I have had acne for about 3 years and the murad fighting gel helped a little but not the results I was looking for. It is also pricey.

This Murad post-acne spot gel is the perfect tool for attacking a bad skin day. I rarely have acne but I found this to be a life saver when a blemish popped up. This gel was easy to use and cleared up my skin by the next day.

I typically love Murad.... but this product missed the mark for me (no pun intended). I didn't love the smell, and after a month of regular use, I saw little to no improvement. I should have saved my money for another product.
