Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product works! I have been using this product for a few months now and I’m so happy I came across it. This is not the type of product that will make a difference in couple of weeks. I use this product morning and night on top of a cleanser and under the Kiehls moisturiser and have noticed a huge difference in my dark marks and I don’t get as many spots as I used to. This product has been amazing for me, especially after using other serums that are too oily, then go on to create more spots and marks. However this product absorbs into the skin leaving your face smooth. If you struggle with spots and the dark marks spots leave on your face, this is a must use!! People expect to see a difference straight away but you need to keep using it for a few months to see the difference.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work This has zero effect on my skin. It has not reduced age spots at all and appears to have no impact on the texture of my skin. I've been using for several months now so have given it ample time to work. Possibly the most disappointing skincare product I've ever bought.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very good buy This organic serum, has done a good job of clearing blemishes on my face. Very impressed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No affect for melasma or age spots As a disclaimer, I have no acne scarring so cannot say whether it works for that (a lot of people report success with it). However for melasma or any dark pigmentation like age spots, I've had zero success with this serum and noticed no difference at all to my skin tone or texture. I have been using it twice a day for about six months now. It seems to be a corrective for scar tissue rather than melanin over production problems. I love Kiehls and buy all of my skincare from them, but if hyperpigmetation is your problem this is not for you.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh After using it for the first few times I couldn’t see any changes to my dark spots. Would not recommend, just a waste of money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product changed my life This product worked soooo well for me. I'm on my 3rd bottle now. after just two weeks i saw a big difference in dark marks on my skin. I just wish it was cheaper

Rated 4 out of 5 by from one of my favourite serums =) I have used this last October of 2018 and it has always been on my skin care.I love how it feels when I apply it on my face. It is easily absorbed and non tacky. I love how it changed the texture of my skin. It made my skin feel smooth and soft. If I am not using it, like I missed a couple of days, I can feel a change in my skin texture. Also, it does not make me breakout which is a huge plus for me. I use it day and night. That is why I keep on repurchasing it. I am nearly on my third bottle now. I am only giving it a 4 because with the hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone, it does help with the new scarring. It helps it heal, however with my old ones I can't see any difference especially my age spots which is starting to be visible now. I notice some brightening effects few weeks of using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for me! I have been using this product for about 6 weeks and it has definitely made a difference on my age spots around my eyes. It has lightened the small age spots to the point that they are barely noticeable! The larger ones are not as dark so I will continue to use and hope they will eventually disappear. I read the reviews before I purchased and some people said it didn't do anything for them. I guess everyone's skin is different but I have to say this product works for me! I will continue to use faithfully!
