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.

  • Fade acne scars and eliminate acne dark spots

Finally, AHA’s exfoliate your skin to boost clarity and skin tone.

My daughter suffers with acne and I've tried several spot lightening products and this brand was the best hands down and although it's expensive my daughter won't use anything else

It's pretty expensive.... But what good product isn't? It works miracles, especially when you have a lot of acene scars, or spots. It's so light on your face. It's worth every penny.

I was very happy with this product. Definitely worth every dime! The older I get the, the more I'm starting to break out. Murad has really helped lighten the spots left by my acne.

I used this product religiously for several months and didn't see any improvement in my skin. I had great success with other Murad products so I was extremely disappointed with this

This really works!! My scars have actually gotten lighter and after getting over a break out this works very good to prevent any further scaring. This also doesn't dry my skin out.

This product gradually lightens my dark spots. I use it about 2-3 times weekly. I'm on my second bottle and have noticed a significant difference in the evenness of my skin tone.

Didn't help at all. Actually gave me more acne and it's very drying. But honestly that's what almost every acne product does to me so maybe it'll work for u but for me it's a dud
