Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum 4.6 5 424 435
I absolutely love this product. I had a few age spots that I was very self conscious about. I spent thousands of dollars on expensive prescription creams and laser treatments with not much satisfaction. Since I started using this product 6 months ago, the spots have almost disappeared. Thank you! July 22, 2009
Great product!!! I have been using this for a few years now . After buying and returning at least 10 others I have found this to be the only product that really works and highly recommend it. September 28, 2014
I saw a difference I'm 45, with sun damage and the early age spots. I was hoping for a miracle in a bottle to make them disappear. I didn't get that miracle with this product, BUT, they did get lighter. I can still see them, BUT I don't wear nearly as much make-up as I used to to cover them up. Sometimes, I don't wear any makeup at all these days. Yeah, they are still there, so I can't give it a 5 star review, but I am sufficiently satisfied that the product works enough to validate the expense. August 9, 2014
Don't waste your money! I bought this product because I have a few age & sun spots, I used it twice a day faithfully for months and had absolutely no results! It is very expensive which I would not have minded if it worked. It did not! Very disappointed and wish I could get my money back. February 16, 2014

serum turning brown- OK to use?

I stopped using the lightening serum for a while but then noticed some spots from being outside this summer so got it back out but noticed its turning brown. I feel bad tossing it because half of the serum is left and its pricey. Will it still work if its changing color? Will anything bad happen from using it this way?

Answer: 
I am so sorry for any concern the change in color may have caused. The discoloration (turns brown) of the Lightening Gel is a normal reaction of this formula due to exposure to air and/or high temperature. This is result of sensitivity to oxidation of the 2% Hydroquinone Skin Lightener. We package this formula in a glass bottle with tight pump to minimize the probabilities of discoloration. If maintained at room temperature and in the same condition (tight pump) as when shipped the product should maintain it's normal color for the 24 months of shelf life. Early discoloration would lead me to believe that it either had a loose pump or was exposed to abnormal high temperatures. The discoloration is only an aesthetic condition but there is no safety concern.

Answers

Answer: 
Are you using sunscreen diligently? It is crucial to be able to insure results. An SPF 15 protects against 94% of UVB rays whiles an SPF 30 protects against 97%. Anything higher is only about a 1% increase which can provide people with a false sense of security. The reality is that most people don't apply enough. Protection can be decreased with clothing rubbing the sunscreen off, sweating or being in water. In light of the various factors that can decrease protection we do recommend reapplying once every 2 hours to maintain a constant level of protection, regardless of the SPF.

Answer: 
Murad does not release the percentages of ingredients in our formulas except when required by law. We consider our formulas proprietary however I can tell you that all formulas follow FDA and CIR recommendations and have the appropriate pH to provide the best environment for your skin.

By looking at just an ingredient, not the formulation, you can indeed miss out on the bigger picture. It is similar to a recipe. You can not have a good chocolate cake without things like eggs, flour, milk etc. While it is chocolate, all the ingredients is what makes it so good.

Answer: 
All Murad products contain antioxidants, anti inflammatories and hydrators to help reduce irritation. Given that you know you are sensitive we do recommend that you perform a patch test for 3 nights and watch for signs of reaction.

Answers

Answer: 
The Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum will help lighten the pigmentation that concerns you. The most important thing to keep in mind is that the sun causes pigmentation to darken so it is very important to use sunscreen, especially when you are using a product containing hydroquinone. The minimum SPF recommended is SPF 15. Murad has several moisturizing sunscreens to choose from and that will meet your skin concern needs.

Answers

Answer: 
We do not recommend Rapid Age Spot Pigment and Lightening Serum be used by pregnant or lactating women. Hydroquinone is an OTC drug and has not been tested by the FDA on pregnant or lactating women. In its place we recommend Advanced Active Radiance Serum. Please be advised that while Murad undergoes all possible safety testing for the quality and efficacy of our products, we have not conducted specific testing for pregnant or lactating women. Dr. Murad recommends that women who are pregnant or lactating consult their physician before using any Murad products.
