I've been using this for a couple weeks now. So far so good but it hasn't been long enough to see any results yet. I'm impressed that it has been gentle enough for my sensitive skin.

This is the best skin corrector I have ever used! I saw a difference in my skin in just a few days. It is a very pricey product but would definitely keep purchasing this product

I did not see a visible difference after months of use. I had high hopes based on positive reviews I had read. I did not feel the product was effective, and I was disappointed.

I used this and the foundation and they both feel so good on my skin, I use it to prevent dark spots from happening and for a while I did see that it was evening my skin out.

I love this product. I makes my skin so smooth. I haven't used it long enough to seem much results but I has lightened my hyperpigmentation slightly within the past week.

One of the best products out in the market to date. Everyone asks me how I have evened out my skin tone and I brag about this. I love it and definitely worth the money spent on it.

This product lightened my dark spots dramatically and very quickly, however it caused small pimples around the affected area. I highly recommend this product to anyone that has dark/red spots but if you have sensitive skin be prepared for potential small pimples.

Is this worth the price? I've almost purchased it several times but never brought myself to it. This would be my last resort to get rid of my darks spots before I go to the dermatologist.

How often do you need to use this product to see results with dark spots? Also, where do you work it in to your daily routine?

Is this lightweight? I have tried other dark spot correctors and they all felt really thick no matter the amount I use.
I have many irritating dark freckles on my face, but I have one that is huge. This dark spot is much bigger than a pencil eraser. How much lighter can I expect my spot to become with regular use?
