This product could be so good. Its almost there. This product, like many on the market, contains irritating and sun-sensitizing citrus oils/extracts. Sometimes my skin can tolerate them just fine, but often, as was the case here, they irritate my skin. Bummed because i would like to find a Vit C serum that's slightly less expensive than my current fave. This one is effective at reducing hyperpigmentation though.

I’ve used all three sizes of this amazing serum! This has worked wonders on my hyperpigmentation, far more than any similar serum has before. I used this nonstop for two years and unfortunately, the efficacy did ware off for me after this much time but I still rate it highly and would absolutely recommend it! It helps lighten both old and new marks, and is very gentle for sensitive skin.

I love this product and use it everyday. I started getting a few dark spots on my cheek and forehead. Got a sample of this a fell in love. My dark spots are completely gone. It’s a light weight oil that absorbs well and brightens. This price isn’t too bad for the product and I would recommend this if you have dark spots.

Absolutely love this stuff. Was strolling through Millennia Mall one day on a hunt to cure my hyperpigmentation and Kiehls was right there. The sales associate sent me home with samples and I have been hooked every since. Higher price point but my skin and sanity is worth it.

This is one of the best dark spot treatment for reasonable price!
Of course it isn't a magic solution that shows result overnight. Dark spot develop overnight but doesn't disappear overnight! It takes time though it really works!

I like it but I don’t feel that gives me too much, I don’t see any difference in my dark spots and that it’s pricey so I don’t know. I continue used to see if there is any change

My mom gave me this product to try to lighten the dark spots I keep getting from pimples on my forehead/chin. This serum is really watery so be careful when you use the dropper! I honestly have not seen any improvement and do not think I will repurchase. For the same purpose, I believe there are other options out there.

Absolutely zero efficiency, for me. Finished the bottle, applied day and night. The only thing that disappeared are my $50. Not even an hydrating or plumping effect. It had absolutely no positive or negative effect on my small dark acne spots on a dehydrated skin. Worthless for me. I wouldn't recommend.

Review for: 30Ml 1Oz more...
I purchased this to help even my skin tone, mainly. i have some pigmentation and a few dark spots from either a blemish mark, or some small sun spots. i noticed a difference in only a week. i apply just a tiny amount only to the spots i want lightened and with time and 2x a day use - this really does lighten those areas. i don't rub it in, i pat it on my skin like i do with other serums/essence/oils. this has helped with texture as well! i was very skeptical buying this product (price) but it's one of the best serums i've ever used. it's recommended to use twice a day for best results, and i think depending on your skin and the problems you have, you can likely only use it once a day and see a change. it's honestly blown my mind how quickly i noticed a difference. i have been using this for 2 wks now and am still loving it.
*edit: at the bottom of my first bottle*
this product takes time to work. i experienced positive results quickly, and while parts of my skin have actually lightened, not all areas have. this is a product you need to use consistently, and probably go through more than 1 bottle to achieve the maximum results. i'm about to purchase my 2nd one and i still think this is an amazing serum... just know not all results are the same. it's not an instant miracle, but i stand by that this product is effective, gentle, and the longer use it, the better the results!

Really loved this product. It made my skin really soft and I had this glow the next morning. It was my first time using it and I really found it effective. It will last a long time and hence is good value. Will def be buying again. I feel with regular usage it will def fade away my blemishes.

Does this help with preventing spots and not just the scarring from spots?

After years, I'm finally at ease with my skin in terms of acne. However, I'm left with acne scars. I have sensitive skin and I'm wondering if this product is right for me? Thanks!

How did this work on those with fair skin + hyper pigmentation + acne scars? I just ordered this on a whim and was wondering if anyone else with similar skin saw any results?

So I bought this and used this and stopped cuz I didn't notice anything. But probably should have kept using it and now I'm back to using it. How long does it really take to see positive results??
