    I have been a fan of Murad products for a long time,but had never used this specific one. A friend reccomended it as she found it helped for her uneven skin areas. After a couple of weeks of use I saw results, but after one month I saw a huge difference in the uneven darker pigmentation areas on my face - in that they were fading. I heard how great Vitamin C really is for fine lines, discloration etc and would agree. Also love how smooth the product goes on and you don't need a lot. I probably could only use it once a day,but have been using twice. Would reccomend.

    This is the only product I have used on my face where my skin really got irritated (I've tried various serums, including vitamin C serums/additives from philosophy and Lancome and even prescription Renova). This surprised me because of Murad's reputation and my good luck with their pomegranate line of skin care. I tried using it less often, taking a break and coming back to it, nothing worked. No matter the circumstances, this product irritated my skin. I found that so disappointing because of the steep price tag. Unless you are confident this will work for you, I strongly recommend trying to get a sample and using it for a few days before dropping the money on it.

    Comments about <em>Murad Environmental Shield Essential - C Daily Renewal Complex, 1 fl oz</em>:

    Jury is still out on the effectiveness of evening my skin tone since I'm not even halfway through the jar, but it is great as a primer. Gives a nice matte and smooth finish before applying makeup and keeps the oil at bay. It tingles when applied so it feels like it's working but haven't noticed a difference in my skin yet. It is expensive (but what product with vitamin C isn't!) so I'm waiting to make my final decision on how good it really is until I've used it longer.

      I bought this item because my dermo brand changed and I was not as happy with the texture of the revised product. This is close in texture but I have not used long enough to notice results from it. Goes on smoothly and happy with it so far....

        This is a fabulous product from Murad. When you smooth it on, your face feels like velvet. It's not oily or greasy, just gives your skin an amazing glow and protects skin from harsh weather and pollution. This and Day Reform Treatment are both amazing!

          I use this product daily and it is the best item that touches my face. I had used it a few years ago and then stopped. I regret the year I did not use it. It may be a bit expensive but the results are worth every penny. It is a must have from now on!

            I have been using Murad for about 4 years and fell in love with this product. I am a black female with very oily skin and I was amazed by the results. After using this product, my skin was matte, velvety, and glows. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who wants to revitalize their skin. The jar is small, but will definitely last since you do not need to use much. Try it once; you won't be disappointed!

            I grew up in southern California, so my skin looks so much older than my friends in the Midwest. After about two weeks of using this, my labial folds (parenthesis) around my mouth are highly diminished and my freckles are actually evening out! Less make-up/foundation required! I do warn you need to use an SPF afterward (I use the MD Vitamin c cream in a tube). Also, a very TINY bit smoothes on entire face! FANTASTIC!!!

            This product is really great! It wakes up your skin. It definitely brings out new skin cells and makes your skin look younger and fresher. It's packed with vitamin C and you can really feel it tingling your skin when you put it on. if use it in the am and Cityskin Detox from Murad at night.

            I don't believe in topical products that claim to be better than surgery, but I do believe in taking care of what you've got and Murad has the best effective products! It's pricey, but worth saving your hide!
