Note: I have very fair, hyper-sensitive skin and used to struggle with acne. While the vast majority of my pimples have disappeared (thanks to Liz Earle Hot & Polish Cleanser and Michael Todd scrubs), they left behind a number of dark spots. This beauty elixir not only lightens and even out those spots, but also minimizes my pores, and leaves my skin feeling soft and refreshed. I cannot recommend it enough.
Also - I find using it twice a day before I moisturize to be most effective.
