I scar very easily, and have the occasional break-out which contributes to the scarring, so I’m always on the lookout for products that have glycolic acids and Vitamin C in them because both those products can help lighten scarring.
I’ve been using the Murad Active Radiance Serum because it has both glycolic acid and vitamin C in it.
This is quite possibly the best Glycolic Acid product I’ve ever used, simply because it has Vitamin C in it too and both those products are at concentrations high enough to actually work!
I have to say that I noticed visible brightening after using it just one night. In one day, I noticed that I had lost the tan gained over the weekend and my skin was very soft. After a week of using it nightly, I noticed that my skin was much smoother. I’ve now begun to use this during the day too and I apply it under my sunblock after using a toner. I’m impressed that this absorbs quickly and goes on so smoothly thanks to Dimethicone which gives it that smooth finish.
Sensitive skins be warned: this does have something minty in it so it does give skin that tightening effect that some people can be allergic to. If you have sensitive skin, you might not want to use this because it has so many active ingredients in it, but if you think that your skin can stand up to it and use glycolic acid on a regular basis anyway, then get this because it’s much better than your ordinary glycolic acid product.
You can find it at Sephora and wherever Murad products are sold.
