Murad Rapid Lightening Update
So it has officially been 4 months since I started using Murad's Rapid Lightening line and to say the least I was skeptical. I wanted to be hopeful but a girl was very skeptical, even up until the day I took the pictures. I was mainly concerned with my dark circles and from what I could tell, there wasn't much of a difference. Over the course of the last few months, my friends and people I met would randomly compliment how beautiful my skin was and of course I would say thank you but I still did not notice a difference.
Just to recap, pictured above are the products I was using. I was very consistent with the cleanser and the moisturizer, 75-80% of the time I was using the Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum and I barely used the Radiance Peel and Active Radiance Serum. For a little over 3 months I did not use any other products on my skin other than the ones seen above and I only got 1 facial during that time. I know you're shaking your head and thinking, "Girl! Of course you weren't seeing results, you weren't consistent 100%" and I totally agree but to my surprise this product actually did work!
I was so focused on fixing my dark circles that I didn't realize that the unevenness on my cheeks and around my mouth had begun to even out and my complexion became brighter. My dark circle did fade slightly but I recently learned that the primary source of my dark circles was vascular activity which can only be fixed with fillers or a laser. I do have some hyper pigmentation on my right eye so if these products were making any difference it would have been in that spot. The picture on the show shows my results after using Murad Rapid Lightening System and the picture on the left shows the before.
I still have a decent amount of the products left, so I will definitely be finishing them up. I have begun to incorporate other products into my regimen which will also help to improve my complexion, reduce the size of my large pores and gradually lighten my dark circles.
If you are experiencing some dullness in your skin and you're looking to slightly reduce hyper pigmentation, opt for some samples and definitely give this line it a try! I didn't see immediate or dramatic results but it does take time and consistency. I ams till on a mission to conquer these dark circles so stay tuned!
