This is an expensive serum. I suffer from melisma and this for me just didn't work. I used it for a month and did not see an improvement in my dark spots.

The older I get the more dark spots that I seem to notice. This really helps diminish the appearance of them and helps them virtually disappear. love it!

Ok item, but very expensive. Doesn't really seem to work on my skin, but my friend had good results. Guess it depends on what you are trying to correct.

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.

Is this lightweight? I have tried other dark spot correctors and they all felt really thick no matter the amount I use.
