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.

I really like this serum. It is very light and helps with my acne. I put it on right after I wash my face at night before I go to bed. I've been using it for two years now and my skin looks amazing!!!

Currently using this product, I haven't seen much of a difference but I will continue to use it. The price tag is a little spendy but if it lasts long and I start seeing results it would be worth it.

All of the spots on my face are disappearing after using this gel. I used to have really bad acne and it left a lot of scars on my face though this product helps a lot. I would definitely buy it again

Didn't work as well as I thought it would. I didn't get results as fast as I was hoping for and again a lot of murad products have to be supplemented with other murad products in order for it to work.

I didn't like this product at all, I feel like it didn't work for my skin, it felt really dry. I must have got an allergic reaction because after a while it really irritated my skin, don't recommend

I have tan skin and when I get any sort of breakout it leaves a dark pigment. I use this after its healed and I notice a big difference. It almost always gets rid of the dark pigment. Great product.

If you have acne problems like me, this is the product that will removed any signs that you are prone to acne. It leaves my skin feel soft not hard like most products. It really brightens my skin.

For the price I think Murad should make their dark spot correctors more concentrated and effective. I feel it cost way too much to not do the trip before the bottle is empty.
