Few weeks back, I've tried both products, and I can see my overall skin health has been improved, even my mum also asked me what skincare product I'm using now.
Murad is one of my favourite skincare brands, I've been using quite a few of their products from different series, and also shared my personal reviews on my blog.
You can check out all the reviews on my previous beauty posts. :)
So far, their products did not disappoint me, and I always introduce it to my girl friends as well.
If you are having dark spots, hyper-pigmentation problems or looking for a way to even-out or brighten your complexion, continue reading to find out more.

I always like how Murad categorized their products according to different colours; for instance purple is for hydration, green is for lifting and firming, blue is for acne and blemish and many more.
And these Murad Rapid Age Spot Correcting Serum and Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF30 PA+++ are under the orange range which is for dark spots, uneven tones and brightening.
This month, in conjunction with Christmas season, they've launched their limited edition holiday set of brightening essentials, with full sizes of products to celebrate this special season with you all!
This set is a skin solution for dark spots, age spots, sun spots, uneven skin texture and tone, fine lines and wrinkles, which can be one of the best treats for you skin for the upcoming season celebration.

What is Murad Rapid Age Spot Correcting Serum?

Murad Rapid Age Spot Correcting Serum is a clinically proven serum that able to even skin tone, and reduce the appearance of dark spots, age spots and hyper-pigmentation in as little as one week time.
It is a skin solution for environmental aging, dullness, fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture.
The serum is said that it's suitable for all skin types, include normal, dry, oily and combination skins.


Murad Rapid Age Spot Correcting Serum is a blend of 3 powerful ingredients:
#1 Niacinamide Complex: enhances cell turnover to visibly reduce the appearance of dark spots, while targeting key signs of aging and revitalizing skin's natural tone

Besides that, it also has the Vitamin C, Obligopeptides and Subtle Light-Reflecting Pearls to enhance skin's radiance and help brighten tone instantly and over time.
It's safe to use as it is formulated without Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates, Gluten, and Hydroquinone.

Texture & Scent

The texture is great; very lightweight, gentle, and soft.
It's very easy to sink into your skin quickly so you don't have to wait for too long to apply your face moisturizer.
Besides, it also has a very lovely citrusy smell, very pleasant and nice!


Comes with a simple classy packaging, which is in white pump bottle.
The packaging is very convenient and the lid helps to control the amount of content you want to dispense every time you use.
Also, this kind of packaging is very easy to bring it everywhere you go as you don't have to worry about the leakage issues.

How to Use?

Put it together with your day time and nighttime skincare routine.
#1 After cleansing, massage over your face, neck and chest evenly
#2 Continue your skincare routine with any sunscreens during the day, and then follow with your favourite moisturizer at night time
In case of any skin irritation, discontinue use it.

What is Murad Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF30 PA+++?

Murad Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF30 PA+++ is a moisturizer that shields skin from damaging and ageing UV rays and free radical damage.
It also helps to improve skin's radiance and firmness as well.
With the refreshing Citrus formula, it makes skin look more radiant, youthful and supple whilst offering broad spectrum sun protection, which screens skin from harmful and ageing UV rays.
This product is recommended to people who wants to improve skin's radiance and firmness, protect skin from UVA/UVB rays and sun damage, and also preserve hydration all day long.


Murad Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF30 PA+++ contains 3 main ingredients:
#1 Next-Generation Vitamin C: improves skin clarity, brightens, and evens tone
#2 Ginkgo Biloba: antioxidant that combines with antioxidant vitamin C to fight free radical damage
#3 Broad-Spectrum Sunscreens: help blocking UV rays
Again, this product is formulated without Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates, Gluten, and animal-derived ingredients.

Texture & Scent

Since it comes from the same family as the Rapid Age Spot Correcting Serum, this Essential-C Day moisturizer also has a very fresh citrus smell when apply it on the skin.
Feeling very delightful and calming with the beautiful orange smell. :)
As for the texture, it is not in a creamy or thick formula, yet a bit watery and thin texture; so you will find the texture is not greasy, yet easy to spread and absorb quickly to the skin.


The formula is packed in a transparent tube with a white cap on it.
Tube packaging is always very convenient for squeezing product out or carry around with you, however I find this tube packaging is slightly difficult to control the product, maybe it's because the content is quite watery that it spills out to the sides easily.
So, be careful when you open the cap.

How to Use?

After cleansing and toning, massage evenly over face, neck and chest.
Since the moisturizer comes with sun protector factor, you can only apply it everyday in the morning.
Well, you can also first apply an Environmental Shield treatment for better result.

My Experience

My first impressions about these both products are good, in terms of the ingredients, lovely scent, and gentle texture.
They both go well with my combination skin, whereby the texture do not irritate my skin at all, and also absorb quickly into my skin without being too oily or greasy.
I think this is quite important for my skin because I hate to have oily and greasy complexion. 
Since my face do not have serious problems with the dark spots problems, I can't see big changes on the spot problems with the Murad Rapid Age Spot Correcting Serum.
However, I can see it helped make my skin tone even out and also brighten up my overall skin condition. 
Keep in mind that it's always best to use the product consistently to see the desired result.
On the other hand, the Murad Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF30 PA+++ is really nice on my skin no matter if I wear it alone or to prep my skin with before makeup.
When I feel like having a simple skincare routine for that day, I will just put on this moisturizer since it comes with sun protection.
I like how it can protect my skin from the sun and also at the same time works well to brighten up my entire complexion, as well as hydrate my skin a long way.
