Worked for brightening, not for reducing hyperpigmentation, November 20, 2011
This review is from: Lumi’Essence Body Organic Advanced Brightening Repair Treatment with Kojic Acid, Arbutin & Vitamin C, 5oz (Misc.)
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.
