I recommend Advanced Pigment Corrector to my patients who struggle with hyperpigmentation and post-acne discoloration. I use it daily to maintain my results post laser treatment for pigmentation. It’s light, works on all skin types and can be used year round!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't Seem To Work! What a huge disappointment. I wish I had read these reviews before buying this product but I fell for the fact that this is a renowned company 'backed by science' in skincare. This pigment corrector did not work on me at all and we are in the summer months so it is extremely frustrating because I don't want my spots to get worse and while this is happening, perhaps there is a better product out there I could be using. nnAfter spending nearly a hundred dollars on this product, I feel ripped off and annoyed. I will definitely think twice and do more due diligence before buying any more products by this company.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product works -- packaging doesn't. This product worked VERY well on two stubborn brown spots on my forehead and cheek -- they've literally disappeared. However, I'm really disappointed that I cannot access the entire contents in the tube. The pump simply doesn't dispense all the product -- and the top doesn't screw off and the tube is rigid so using scissors isn't an option -- very odd. It would be a major improvement to simply have the top screw off and then your customers could access the lotion with a rubber spatula made for lotions/gels/creams/cosmetics. It's costly so throwing this product because of access. When you finally do improve the packaging, please be sure to add bells, whistles and stars on your website to announce this improvement so that we can all restart purchasing. But I simply can't pull the trigger again while the product is dispensed in it's current state.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No improvement I’ve used Advanced Pigment Corrector along with other Skinceutical products and I’m disappointed to say that the pigment corrector has shown no improvement after 5 months of twice daily use. I like Skinceutical products and can say I’ve seen a bit of improvement in texture and wrinkles. I will finish the tube because it’s too costly to waste but I will not repurchase. I would try another Skinceutical product to lighten dark spots . Hopefully there is one out there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improved my brown pigmentation on my face - yeah! I am hispanic and have suffered from melasma (brown patches) on my cheeks and tip of my nose for many years; dark spots intensified after pregnancy. A year ago, I tried Lumecca (IPL laser - $$$ ) which diminished the melasma but I still see some small dark spots on my face; my dermatologist suggested Advanced Pigment Corrector. This is my 4th night and dark spots are vanishing. Every morning, I see an even tone. I am loving this product - After this product, I apply the Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50. Thank you SkinCeuticals :-)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wasteful packaging I, too, love this product (very effective in reducing dark marks on my skin), I used this product for over a year and would rate it a 9+/out of 10. However, I do not like the packaging at all- As others have stated here, I find that I am unable to access ALL the product due to the design of the packaging, this leads to a lot of waste. I'm very hesitant to re-purchase and will look at other options.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the product HATE the packaging I love this so much I can't be without it, it doesn't immediately lighten all of my spots, but firms my face and gives it an amazing glow. Unfortunately, the packaging is horrible! It is not a flexible tube that squeezes, it is thick hard plastic which makes it impossible to get out every last drop :( Will still purchase, but please consider changing package.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really worked! I had melasma, or darkening of theabove my upper lip for years.. I finally asked a great dermatologist if I should laser it and she suggested this instead. Within a few weeks and had lessoned and after a couple of months it was totally gone. So happy because I am allergic to the usual hyperpigmentation ingredients and this worked!
