Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does Help I got a sample in Beauty fix and noticed within three weeks changes to discoloration “mask” so happy about that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps with my sensitive skin I have been using this consistently for 7 months now and I’m so glad it was recommended to me! I have very sensitive skin that reddens easily and was recently diagnosed with rosacea. This product helps to soothe while also taking down the redness and building up my skins protective barrier. Even my aesthetician noticed how much healthier my skin looks and how’s it’s less reactive. It has also been helping with the hyperpigmentation from any acne spots I’ve had. It’s a little messy to use because it’s very watery, but it’s nice that I can wear it under other serums and makeup and it’s not sticky.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No difference in my skin I have some broken capillaries and hyperpigmentation, brown spots and this is doing absolutely nothing for my skin. I still have about a month left in this product, but I have not seen any difference. Skinceuticals Products is just overpriced with no results, I am disappointed. I have tried a sample of discoloration defense with no results from that. So opted for this after a team member of skinceuticals had recommended this product for me. I will not be purchasing In the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soothing I've used this for years. Its more of a soothing botanical. It's green! After washing my face I must have this soothing serum. It moisturizes, but its not a moisturizer, it's a serum. It maintains the lightening of peels and sunscreen. My skin daily cra bfg es the soothing botanicals and the hyaluacid.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No results You recommended I try Phyto+ instead because of my previos review for Discoloration defense. I looked at the reviews for Phyto+. Your going in circles with referring products when one doesn't perform as advertised. This was your response to review that the Pyto+ did not help. I for sure wont buy it. Thank you anyway. RESPONSE FROM SKINCEUTICALS: Consumer Care Center · 10 months ago Hi there! We can understand how frustrating it can be when a product does not give you the results you were looking for. We recommend as an alternative to try our Discoloration Defense.Discoloration Defense is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of key types of skin discoloration, including hard-to-treat forms such as stubborn brown patches and post-acne marks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works on my hyperpigmentation I've started using this for about 2 weeks. This was after using a whole bottle, plus some of the their Discoloration Defense. I needed this for hyper pigmentation on my olive toned skin from some acne, but mainly melasma that got inflamed from a extremely high concentrated glycolic peel in Nov 2018. I went under Dr.'s care for the entire 2019 year with prescribed ointments to reduce inflammation which worked; and honestly is less costly from any Skinceuticals product. By 2020, my skin had become less hyper-sensitive, so I began using the Skinceaticals products that I had previously purchased; I started with the Skinceuticals DD product. I used the DD product, and didn't see significant results from that. I have seen results from this Phyto + within a few days, so I am happy with it for now, and will likely buy other products that contain kojic acid, along with a second bottle when I need to. I would still consider my skin sensitive (not hypersensitive), and I react fine this Phyo+ product. I also use this product per their recommendation, which is to layer it over an Antioxidant. I apply it to my entire face vs. only to the discolored areas.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NO IMPROVEMENTS I am half way already, I use this days and nights., but I don't see any improvements on the areas that have problems. Is pricey, don't think will buy this again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brightens skin I had a facial at Robert Andrews. The esthetician recommended I purchase a bottle and apply a few drops all over my face daily (even though directions advise to spot treat the skin). Holy moly! Within 1-2 weeks of daily use, my skin tone was brighter and my complexion evened up! I now can’t live without this stuff!! I’m going to buy the vitamin C serum to use in the mornings since it has such raging reviews. Hard to imagine anything working better than phyto gel though.
