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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gives Moisture without Over-Moisturizing I have been battling breakouts since the teenage years, and my mother works in dermatology so I have had access to every possible product to fight it. This has been the BEST product I have found so far for moisturizing my skin. I have combination skin that would get SO DRY after washing my face, but then break out so badly when I applied moisturizer. This product gives enough moisture but it doesn't cause horrible breakouts. I can't say it is perfect, but I absolutely love it and like I said, it is the best product I have been able to find that will moisturize without leading to breakouts. I keep ordering it and am incredibly satisfied. The only frustrating thing is nowhere can I find something that truly give me the difference between this product and the Phyto Corrective Gel, yet the Phyto+ is more expensive. I might try out the Corrective Gel instead just to compare since nobody can do it in writing apparently...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from What color should the phyto + be at it's freshest? I purchase this item on a regular basis. However recently I've noticed the color has been darker than before. What is the reason for this? Has the formula changed? Has anyone else experience this issue? Does heat or altitude affect the color? I ask because I notice this after packing this in my check in luggage and flying oversea. Just wondering if the airplanes temperature can affect the color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works so well for me! I have been using & purchasing this product since 2016. It always does a great job on reducing redness from my acnes. It's also a good antioxidant product since it brightens up my skin tone:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please never discontinue this! I worked w/ an esthetician who recommended this as a moisturizer for my oily but very sensitive skin. This combined w/ a Vit C product means beautiful skin with such nice tone I discontinued foundation. Use a tinted sunscreen but zero need for makeup. Never thought I could have clear & comfortable skin, love love love this product. Pls never discontinue!
