Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Product! - Worth the money. I have used Phyto+ for 5 years. I am fair skin. I had darker spots (sun damage) on my cheeks that would not clear. Tried a full regimen of IPL treatments twice, but no luck. Only diminished the color a little. With nothing to lose, I read everything I could on dark spots and what can fade them. Then, I took matters into my own hands. I starting using Phyto+ followed by the Retexturing Activator Serum. Twice a day -- every day. Never missed. Also, I used the Physical Sunscreen daily. Little by little I started to see a difference. At 8 weeks, the spots hardly showed. A small one was gone. Two years later, the spots are ALL gone. The procedure even cleared a patch of melisma that was not supposed to clear, according to IPL technicians. Not sure if this will work for everyone, but it worked for me. Took longer than I wanted, but it worked when nothing else did. Very happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for melasma My Derm gave me a sample of this to try on my melasma. I’ve tried everything, EVERYTHING, and this is the first product that has worked miracles for my skin. It’s been one week and spots I never thought would fade, are almost gone. I’m shocked and so happy. I plan to continue using this for a very long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful for brighter skin! I have very uneven skin in terms of dark spots and patches. I love this product because I have noticed a considerable improvement in my skin. I have an overall brighter complexion, and the dark spots and areas have lightened noticeably. I have fair skin, so the spots were very easy to see. I also love that Phyto+ is very soothing. A lovely product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a must-have for me I have oily but very sensitive skin, occasional breakouts. An esthetician suggested I try this product for calming & clearing skin. I've never been able to use moisturizers without irritation, but this product has been a lifesaver since I started using it. Actually started using it about 15 years ago, along w/ a Vit C product. This is the one product that I can't seem to do without. Skin is clearer, brighter, calmer. Please never discontinue it. Not having to worry about skin comfort and looks... priceless. Thank you Phyto Plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! I have been using this product every morning and night for a month. I have noticed that my melasma has faded. It's not gone but it takes less makeup to cover it up. I know it takes 2-3 months to see the full result and I think with daily use, I can get my melasma even lighter. I did go see a dermatologist who is putting me on a hydroquinone/kojic acid/vitamin c cream for 3 months but I will continue to use the Phyto+ after the 3 month prescription cream period. Overall, really impressed with this product and it is worth the cost.
