Works ok. Lightened some of my hyperpimented areas, but as soon as I stopped using it, the pigmentation came right back.

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.
