GOOD TO KNOW

Used twice daily, it is possible to start observing improvements to your skin within 4 weeks.

80% of women in the clinical trial observed skin that was more, evenly colored, less blotchy, and had better clarity and radiance with this regime

The gel serum has a nice soothing texture and I like that it’s packed with so many active ingredients. I felt that it really lightened the darker patches on my skin without affecting the surrounding skin, unlike a few serums I’ve tried previously. Within a couple of weeks I felt my skin looked brighter and with just over a month of use, I could see that dark patches were lightening up and my skin was blending to a more all round even tone. I will definitely continue using it as I feel the effect on my skin so far has been super!

I was pleasantly surprised by this little powerhouse serum. Anti pigmentation skincare is new to me so I didn’t know what to expect. Firstly, the texture is lightweight and it absorbed into my skin without any stickiness or tackiness. Secondly, it worked, it did what it said it would do and it addressed the dark marks on my face by fading them over the time I was using it. Thirdly, I also noticed that when I did get a spot, the mark cleared up much more quickly than before when I wasn’t using an anti pigmentation product. Lastly, I think the price is very affordable, it doesn’t break the bank, yet it makes my skin look like a million dollars!

Good to know

In clinical trials, after 12 weeks of use 96% of users reported an overall improvement in the appearance of their skin and overall skin tone.

I got asked what work I got done on my skin...that’s validation right there! I felt my skin colour was more unified and there was definitely a reduction in the patchiness and my connect the dots pigmentation I normally get during my menstrual cycle was a lot less apparent. Also, I felt that my skin itself felt smoother and looked healthier with a more natural glow.
