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.

How it Works

An exclusive blend of stabilized vitamin C, olive leaf extract, and zinc PCA combats free radicals and helps stop the formation of aging pigments. The formula also contains beta-bright peptide, an encapsulated lightening peptide that promotes a brighter complexion, and pomegranate enzyme, which stimulates cellular renewal by exfoliating dead cells from the skin’s surface for a rejuvenated glow.

Spotless

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.

This works, really
Purchased

I was hesitant, since I'm not familiar with this brand. But, I am so glad I went for it. I want to say a bottle lasted about 45 days or so- using twice daily. I actually took a photo prior to using this product. I ran out a couple of days ago. So I took another photo this morning...wow. Noticeable difference. It's hard to tell when you see and scrutinize your image daily in the mirror. I could tell, maybe slight fading. A photo though prompted me to place another order immediately. I'm half filipino and the sun affects my skin all sorts of ways. I totally recommend this product for other women who know what I'm talking about. It's worth it.

Not Impressed

I have just finished the entire bottle of dr. brandt dark spots no more and I will not repurchase even if the price was $5.00 because I did not see any results. I am 50 with age spots. I used this product twice a day for almost two months and saw no improvement. I will go back to my budget skin whitener at my local discount store which has shown results in the past. I expected more from dr. brandt.

Love this stuff!!
Purchased

I have tried several other products that claimed to lighten up dark spots but this has to be my fav of all time. It takes a little while but with consistent use the dark spots DO start to fade. I will continue to use this product and hopefully turn back the hands of time. LOL Great buy!!

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.

Expensive
Purchased

I have used this product for about 2-3 weeks. I can not see any difference with using the product. For the cost I would have expected more.

Happy!
Purchased

I just got this product and I am already really happy with it. It went on really smooth and felt great on my skin. It didn't feel oily the way I thought it might.

Does the trick!
Purchased

Although pricey, I love the dr. brandt brand! With this serum I definitely saw some lightening of spots but nothing drastic. If you are looking for something to get rid of sun spots this is it. Anything darker you may need something else. It worked for me on my lighter spots but the darker ones only faded so much. Overall, great product and great quality!!!

Not sure
Purchased

I've been using this product for about three weeks or so. I've seen allover fading, which is how I use the product. I am thinking about using a separate direct spot treatment as well for my driving (left side) spots.
