|Murad Rapid Age Spot and Lightening Serum|
Recently, I was in South Beach just as Sandy was wreaking havoc on the Northeast. Four days suddenly became 12 and the weather everyday was a cloudless 78 degrees without a trace of humidity. (I had to laugh... on the one day the mercury dipped to 70, the local fashionistas were swaddled in cashmere and boots. In my white jeans, sleeveless silk top and nude patent ballet flats, I didn't need to hang a shingle on my back that said, "Visiting New Yorker". I stuck out like a sore thumb.)
Net-net, I could not resist warming my bones and though I never wore sunscreen with lower than 20 SPF, there was still a price to pay...My forehead did sprout a freckle. Uggghhh!!!

I make no bones about my love for Dr. Howard Murad products. If you've got an ailment, he's developed a cure for it and best of all??? They work.
When I received and email from my P.R. friends at Murad about Black Friday Deals and Cyber Monday Deals, ($25 off $100 worth of products and gift sets galore of popular potent treatments,) I asked if Murad had anything to lighten dark spots. The answer immediately came back, "Yes'! Would I like to sample Murad Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightner?
It arrived 3 days ago and I already see a difference! I am going to post my progress in 10 day intervals. I love that it is a clear, thin gel, and not a cream that will turn eerily brown, like all other products with hydroquinone have used.
I checked out the Sephora reviews and they are stellar. Here is some more product information:
