Birchbox Breakdown

Staring in the mirror at dark spots and discoloration, we often feel like we're channeling Lady Macbeth ("Out, damn spot!"). Thankfully, we've taken a turn toward the light with this serum from dermatologist Dr. Brandt. Age spots, sun spots, and hyperpigmentation don’t stand a chance against this innovative formula developed to prevent the production of melanin as well as minimize the buildup of cellular debris responsible for age spots. Damn spots, begone.

Spotless
Purchased

I have to say, I was hesitant to get this product, becuase it was expensive with few reviews, and I had not tried a sample. Needless to say, Im glad I trusted in the brand and moved forward wtih the purchase. I like how it dispenses in the pump fashion and how one pump gives me a perfect amount. But more importantly, I love how it does what I bought it to do. I use it morning and night as a first step after washing my face. Within 2 weeks I can notice a huge difference. Even my husband mentioned it when he saw how clear my face was before bed. Trust in the purchase.

Great texture
Purchased

I have only been using this product a short period of time, but I love the texture. You only need to apply a little bit for full coverage.

Dr Brandt
Purchased

I like the feel of this product, the pump is great for dispensing the perfect amount to apply. Time will tell if it truly fades spots and evens skin tone. It is not oily or sticky. I was worried about the cost but have never been disappointed in any of Dr Brandt's line

No change
Purchased

I used this stuff for three weeks and I saw no change at all in the dark spots and sun spots. The smell and texture were nice. It just didn't work for me.

being patient
Purchased

I've been patient, spent a lot on this and not seeing any difference after almost a month of use. I will continue using with my night routine to see if there are any changes.

Light and easy to use!
Purchased

I am always trying to find a product to smooth my skin, acne scars and sun spots. I didn't notice a big difference after using this product for a month. It may have even caused a breakout. But I did enjoy applying it to my face - it was light and smoothed my skin temporarily for easy makeup application.

Finally something that works!!
Purchased

Have only been using this a little over a week but I can already see the dark spots fading. This is the third product I ordered. I emailed customer service about my skin issues and this is what they reccomed. I was worried because it's speedy but it's totally worth it!

I Love It!!
Purchased

It smells a little weird but it works like a dream. I have been lightening my dark spots with other things but this has shown better and faster results than anything.

still waiting for results..

I have been using this product for 8 weeks. I am still waiting for an obvious sign of my dark spots fading. Maybe because I started using it in winter and my spots were more noticeable...now that it's warming up and my skin is darkening a little, perhaps the spots will just start to blend with my skin color. Either way, I spent a pretty penny on this and have desperately wanted results but with all face regimens, time will tell. I think I still have a month's worth of product left--hard to tell in the non see through bottle, however the best thing about this product is a little goes a long way, so you can get your money's worth!
