Works amazingly well! Works better than hydroquinone -- and does not leave you with the side-effects of hydroquinone! The only thing that worked in the past on my hyper-pigmentation on my forehead and cheeks was Hydroquinone. From being on the birth control pill for years, I would get this large dark spots on either side of my forehead, and a Fred Flinstone haze of darkness on the sides of my cheek/jaw. I had tried every agespot-reducer and bleacher on the market, including the most expensive ones, and nothing worked until I found this product! I cannot express how quick (one month) my severe forehead pigment was reduced, but in a natural way. Your skin does not feel tight or ruined like bleaching creams. Under makeup before with melasma, the spots turn grey. The fading caused by this cream happened so naturally and amazingly--that I did not notice until my husband said "your makeup looks really young and fresh!" I realized that evening that my pigmented areas had faded so well that you could barely see them anymore! I had been using this only at night with amazing results--so now am adding it to my am regimen as well for even better results. I HIGHLY recommend this product!! [Also, this is not a glass, but a plastic tube. If you stand it up in your drawer, you do get all of the product.] May 28, 2014
Didn't Work For Me I want to first say that I love SkinCeuticals and almost every product I have tried. However, this product did not work for me. I have dark spots left from acne as well as melasma from my second pregnancy. I was hoping this product would help with at least my acne spots and had very high hopes. I followed the directions and used it twice a day. I saw no improvement in any of my discoloration throughout the entire bottle. For the price, I was very disappointed and will not purchase again.

I didn't see any difference, also the tube is made of glass. One cannot squeeze out the content. This is a very expensive cream. After finishing the whole tube which is made of glass, I do not see any improvement on my dark spots and acne scars. Not sure if I should buy and use more to see improvements. But because of the price and the glass tube, I may not buy anymore. Did I mention that the tube is made of glass? You cannot squeeze out the content. It comes with a pump, you can't tell whether there are more cream inside the tube that you are not able to pump out or it is really empty. It is very irritating that one can't know whether one has really finished the content or the pump just quit working. I can't make a decision whether to buy more and apply more to see improvements since I've only used one glass tube. March 30, 2014
