Even the tiniest bit of sun exposure can trigger melatonin production (aka more dark spots). Apply an SPF like ORIGINS® VitaZingTM SPF 15 Energy-Boosting Moisturizer every day.


Birchbox Breakdown

Seeing spots? You’re not alone. Sun damage, aging, and stubborn acne can lead to dark patches that leave your complexion looking less than stellar.

It’s chock-full of all-natural ingredients that deliver major results—in just four weeks, 92 percent of users showed dramatic improvement in skin tone evenness.

How it Works

Instead of harsh chemicals and bleaching agents, this silky serum contains gentle, natural skin brighteners. Rosa roxburghii packs a major dose of vitamins A, C, and E to fight off future dark spots, while licorice root extract and white peony calm skin and bestow a healthy glow.

Not so much.

I liked the sample and wanted to try it longer, so I bought the product, but it really didn't fade my dark spots.

Showing improvement

I have been using this product for about 6 weeks and I can honestly say that it has helped with my acne scars. I have cystic acne and have been suffering for nearly 15 years. Even after my large pimples aren't inflamed, a red mark can last for months. I have noticed a difference in the amount of time the marks stay on my face. My face looks more even toned and younger. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who has acne scarring or uneven skin tone.

This caused painful blemishes!

I am a little bit older than most and have some dark/sun spots that I would love to get rid of. I purchased this with high hopes and was very disappointed. This product caused me breakouts that are long lasting and painful. They also leave MORE dark spots. I tried this product (3) three times, and each time it caused bad breakouts. I really really wanted this to work. It's so expensive and caused me more imperfections that I need to figure out how to manage. :(

Works over time

I'm a skeptic when it comes to lighteners, but I have to admit this one does work. Don't expect instant results, it takes some time, but I definitely noticed improvement! Light, with a nice natural scent.

I absolutely LOVE this serum. I haven't tried very many because once I found Mega-Bright I didn't need to keep searching for a good one!! Saw an improvement in just about a week!!

truly brightening

I really like this product. I feel like it makes my skin look brighter and fresher, especially in these dulling winter months. I just wish it was a little less expensive.

Didn't see much difference, but enjoyed it!

Maybe I don't have serious skin tone issues as I thought I did but I didn't see much improvement in my skin after using this product after a few weeks. My skin felt more tight but didn't look any different. This does go on smooth and is cooling on the skin- so that is a plus!
