My Take on Murad Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Gel:

So long story short, I picked this up from Sephora and I just used to pick up anything with the “spot lightening” tag.  I do not have many acne scars, but the very promising 2 percent hydroquinone made me pick this up, horrible product this is and I had a horrid experience.

Murad Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Gel

Neither did it work on my scars nor did it give me an even tone as I had expected, sad product, bad product. I wasted 60 dollars on this trusted brand, my first product from them. I tried using it in combination and with a night cream or a day cream, but alas, it does absolutely nothing.  It could be even bad for sensitive skin as it is very heavy on its concentration of hydroquinone.

I have only cons for this product:

Cons of Murad Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Gel:

  • Smells horrible.
  • Does nothing.
  • Smells of alcohol.
  • Burns my skin if applied in excessive amounts.
  • Pricey.
  • This is a big shame product from a brand like Murad.
  • I don’t like it a bit.
  • Waste of money.
  • Originally priced at 60 dollars, it is not affordable.
  • Does not work on acne spots, I cannot say about freckles or age spots.
  • Includes hydroquinone as well as many other chemicals within ingredients.
  • Increased risk of side effects.
  • Entire product line is too expensive for the average consumer.
  • I didn’t even use the entire bottle, left it half way.
  • I just bought it out of whim, but ended up disliking it.
  • It did make my skin more photosensitive and darker than before, after sun exposure.
  • I need to take extra extra care when I am using this reactive ingredient before going out in the sun and I have to take so many precautions.
  • The fact that it comes in a pump dispenser which does not have a cap, now who gives a pump without a cap?
  • The glass bottle, totally dislike it.
  • Not even cute packaging.
  • I have used many lightening products or few with vitamin C, but none has turned out to be as horrid as this.
  • I never even got to return it back to the store as I picked this up when I was on my way home from the US.

Safety Precautions and Possible Side Effects:

Before making your final decision about Murad age spot and pigment lightening gel, consider the possible side effects.
Side effects including: blistering, skin irritations or rash, swelling and burning on areas applied with gel, flaking of skin and darkening of skin pigments.  Each of these side effects can be quite serious or can be mild depending on how your skin reacts to the high number of chemicals within this formula.  It is true that results can be found within this product but there are much higher risks for adverse effects because of the long list of chemicals used to create it.  Always test a small area of skin before utilizing this product on a large area of visible skin. Also keep in mind there is a 60day money back guarantee if you are not happy with the results.
