I've used this brand before, not this one specifically though. However, the product is extremely outstanding and lives up to the expectations mentioned in the label. The product is instantenious and affordable for the results given compared to any other Lightening Gel.

I have had really bad acne for a long time and I was recommended to the Murad acne line. It cleared everything up!! Then I used the post acne spot gel and it really makes a difference in my skin.

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!!!

Works great! You just have to be consistent with this product because the results took me a couple of months to see anything.

This product is amazing!!! I have had scars on my face for over 10 years and this greatly eliminated them! It's a bit of a pricey product but left my skin looking so clear! I use this along with another acne cream.

I love what this does. The hydroquinone not only helps light my acne scaring but it lightens my sun spots as well! It doesn't dry me out. Murad has always been a favorite of mine. I can always find something new to use that helps with exactly what I need. The serum dissolves into the skin quickly so I don't have to wait till I put my moisturizer on.

I really liked this product but it is one of this things you need to constantly apply to your face or the “dark spots” come back. Avoid the sun. Nice packing, small and effective. Pricey but worth the money if you can up keep and continue to buy!

This is really great for the ones that are struggling to fight acne scars on there skin. I have a lot of acne scars because when I was younger, I would always pop my pimples and touch my face. It caused it to make disgusting, bad scars. I started using this product and it slowly slowly effected m whole skin. It faded away my acne scars and also lightened they. When you put it on, it gives a slight burning sensation but that’s how you know, it does work. I recommend this product to anyone.
