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
  • 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 .

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

I LOVE MURAD. I am an African American women with a medium brown complexion. I have dry/combination skin and when I break out (which isn’t that often) it ALWAYS leave a mark. This product lightened my hyperpigmentation very quickly and did not leave my skin dry afterwards.

Murad's Post-Acne Spot Lightening Gel has worked well for me on the several occasions I've used it. It doesn't have any mind-blowing effects, but i did notice that after 7-10 consecutive applications, the problem spots were slightly less noticeable. Don't expect immediate results! This is a product that seems to only work with prolonged use.

This product is fantastic. It takes a little more time than some of murads other products to work, but it is still effective none the less! I love that there is a pump, and the bottle feels very luxe.

For me it didn’t work as effectively as vitamin E oil does. It also caused me to break out!

If you suffer from old acne scars or even just a couple dark spots left from a breakout or 2 this product is for you! As I was using this product, I noticed day by day that my acne spots were fading and with continued use they eventually went away all together. This product is a lifesaver!

I wish this product worked for me...unfortunately the texture is a little tacky, making it hard to layer, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (i.e. flat, purplish spots after a breakout) stick around for weeks even with this product. Still seeking that holy grail...

This was given to me for my birthday along with a bunch of other skincare products but I was actually afraid to use it due to my freckles and wanting to keep them visible. I use it sparingly and only when needed but it does help reduce blemishes and red spots.

This product has cleared my skin like no other. I have been using it for two months now and my skin has a glow that I have never seen it have before. Even its texture has changed. My skin is now smooth and has a more even tone. I will start using it to just spot treat because I do not want the bleaching effect.
