Haven't seen a whole lot of difference since using. Not sure I would purchase again. Feels good on the skin though.

Working well to exfoliate old skin. I am happy with early results. After a few months my dark spots should be gone.

I didn't see a change. But it did make my skin softer. I used it for months. It was not worth the money to try.

This was a below average serum. Didn't really do anything for my skin good or bad. Not worth the price at all.

It worked okay but i felt it dryed out my skin pretty badly. I have friends who use it and swear by it though.

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?

I have been looking for a product that helps diminish dark spots but so far I have not found anything that is helping lighten the dark spots.How effective is this product in treating them?

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