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 don't have sensitive skin and this product really irritated my face. Couldn't finish it. The packaging was nice and sleek, but not a good value for me.

This product was alright I was expecting a little more for the price, it didn't really help with any of my acne. Don't know that I would use this again.

I definitely saw a minimizing effect on my acne spots, which is so great! They didn't completely disappear, but were significantly reduced the next day.

I've only just begun using this cream,  but I like it so far. I think it's making a difference, but it's probably too soon to tell. I bought mine at Ulta.
