Worked for brightening, not for reducing hyperpigmentation, November 20, 2011

Verified Purchase
I purchased this product for the purpose of reducing hyperpigmentation without using a product that contains hydroquinone. I read that kojic acid and alpha-arbutin are natural skin fading agents, so I wanted to give this product a try. I have fair skin and have some mild hyper-pigmentation on my face related to long term birth control use. After a little over 6 weeks of use I give this product 5 stars for its brightening effect, but only 1 star for its a ability to reduce discoloration (three star overall rating).Brightening: After the first couple of days of using this product my skin began to look brighter immediately after application. Within two weeks my skin started looking much brighter all the time without looking shiny. I was diligent about applying it 2x/day. It also has a light pleasant scent. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a product to give brighter skin. I may buy another bottle and use it just once a day to keep the brightening going, as I think my skin may be even a little brighter than I want.Reducing Discoloration: As I said earlier, I was diligent about applying this cream 2x/day, and I made sure to put a little extra in the areas where I have hyperpigmentation. I can see no reduction in my hyperpigmentation at all. I wore a sunscreen every time I went outside, and I also minimize my time outside right now while I am trying to get this hyperpigmentation under control. I understand that kojic acid and alpha-arbutin are fading agents that help a lot of people, but this product did not work for me.

Great Scent, Great Absorption!, November 29, 2011
Verified Purchase
I have been using Lumi*Essence for several months. It is very creamy when first applied but then melts right into the skin so there’s no greasy residue. While I have well-entrenched areas of hyperpigmentation around my eyes and upper cheeks, Lumi*Essence use along with other products in Sweetsations’ line (toner, eye area treatment, moisturizer/sunscreen) have brightened my skin and kept the areas from getting any darker. No redness or irritation, no reaction to any ingredients in any of the Sweetsations line, all smell delightful, not too perfume-y. Highly recommended for purity and scent (pleasant but not overpowering).Update May 2, 2013: After using this product for more than a year (along with other products in the Sweetsation Therapy line), I am happy to report an overall evening and lightening of my entire face. As part of an overall healthier lifestyle and improved self-care regimen, Lumi-Essence has proven invaluable. If you are in this for the long haul and not just seeking a magic bullet “quick fix”, I’d go with the entire line of Sweetsations Therapy skin care. I am very pleased with the tone and texture of my skin.*Addendum 6/7/2013: Use as directed continues to replenish and renew the texture of my skin. Application of small amounts of Lumi*Essence to my neck and throat keep the skin supple and less “crepe-y” after a weight loss of about 25 lbs. over the past eight months. Nothing else I’ve used has the noticeable effect of Sweetsation Therapy’s skin care line.

Excellent Product, Excellent results, June 19, 2012
Verified Purchase
I have been using Sweetsation products for several years now and will continue to do so because each product performs as advertised and is well-priced. I chose Sweetsation LumiEssence Brightening Repair treatment because it contains Kojic acid, Arbutin, and vitamin C, the ingredients research indicates reduces age spots and sun discolorations and helps to brighten skin tone without being toxic. LumiEssence is a light cream that does not irritate my sensitive aging skin. I also use Their Organic Advanced Brightening and Line Smoothing Eye treatment and it is wonderful in eliminating under eye puffiness while brightening the eye area in a gentle treatment. I never leave the house without applying Sun Si Belle Moisturizing Sunscreen and unlike many other sunscreens I have tried, this one does not irritate my skin. The very best endorsement I can give for Sweetsation products is the fact I will be 65 in a week and everyone is amazed to hear I am over 45. No kidding!
