It smells. It's sticky. It feels gross going on. But at a gorgeously affordable price per bottle, this stuff works better at fading sun spots than ANY OTHER PRODUCT I've ever used, at any price. I've tried everything under the sun for age spots, from the cheapie drug store brands to the $250/ounce fancy-pants stuff. For the most part, they're all the same-- most don't work at all, and some work just enough to keep me from tossing the bottle before it's empty. This product right here, with its gross color, sticky texture, and weird scent provides, without question, the finest results I've ever seen. I love it. Give it 2 weeks and you'll love it.
Odd Smell, terrible film
Am returning this after ordering and attempting to use for a few weeks. Can only wear at night, I tried using in the morning and everything put on top of it began pilling/balling up...had to wash all my makeup off by the time I got to work and went all day sans coverage. Not the end of the world for one day, but means it can never be used beyond evening. Has an odd odor, could live with it if that was the only flaw, but in combination with the total inability to wear under anything else results in a failing grade. I did not notice any changes to dark spots with night time use for 2+ weeks.
i have a lot of acne scars, and this stuff really works to diminish them, as well as redness during a breakout. there's a noticeable difference after a couple of applications. i only apply it at night; it leaves a little bit of a film, so i can't wear makeup when i have it on.
so far so good
i have african american hyper pigmentated skin around my jaw line and ive been trying to get my skin clear. its been few days but so far i havent broken out which is a big deal for my sensitive skin. Thats usually step one. The smell is ok and the texture and consistency is ok. A little does go along way so watch out for the pump action. Love the size and packaging.
Not for my dry face
My face gets incredibly dry in the winter and this product only seemed to accentuate the dryness of my face. Once I put it on, you could vividly see all of the dry patches on my face. I will try again in the summer when deep moisturizing isn't my number one concern.
I really like this; I didn't buy it the first time around when I bought the grapefruit scrub and moisturizer, but now that its winter, the serum adds just enough moisture to make everything awesome. Since using it I've seen a decrease in breakouts and my skin is more evenly toned. :)
I could see a slight improvement. I didn't find the product to be sticky like previous reviews. It felt a little tight going on. I was a little confused as to whether it should be put on if you were going in the sun.
YES to grapefruit!
I purchased this item from Birchbox. I love the smell. I have only used it for a couple of weeks but have already noticed my skin tone is less blotchy....during the summer I get tanned unevenly on parts of my face.
I was not happy with this product because it was very sticky and pilled on my skin once it dried.
Still early to tell
Still little bit too early to tell. It seems to be working on spots that I haven't been able to make progress on with other brands. This seems to be less drying though!
