This product works extremely well for post acne hyperpigmentation. My only recommendation is to do a patch test first for sensitivity.

"Unfortunately with acne, even after a bump goes away I'm still left with this dark mark on my face and other unwanted discoloration (so) I've started using the Lightening Serum and it's amazing. It literally has faded the dark spots on my face."

I LOVE this stuff and I have bought and tried EVERYTHING in the aisles of my local pharmacy. My Dermatologist recomended it since I wanted to get rid of a dark spot (about the size of a nickel) on my cheek. She said laser would probably be ineffective. I gave it a shot, within about two weeks - it was hardly there! It was so light that a little bit of foundation covered it - note - NOT concealer! The trick is - you have to stay on top of it to keep it light. If it seems that the spot is getting darker after a few days use-then the product is working! It may become darker, dry and flaky-then it starts to get light! Scrub with a wash cloth and it lightens each day!
