    I will agree that this product is not fragrance free, however, I don't find the fragrance that unpleasant. I received this product as a sample with some M2 products that I ordered. I have moderated to severe hyper-pigmentation. I have been very discouraged with many products I have purchased to help correct. The best results I have had with a prescription of 10% hydroquinone cream, which I know is not good to use, not to mention it is very expensive and does not last long. I used this Lytera skin brightening, in combination with the M2 "mama lotion". I noticed a difference in just a couple of days. I will say that the Mama lotion is new to me as well, however, I have been using the M2 20% refining lotion for about a year. To date, I am experiencing the very best results ever, even after several invasive laser treatments followed by the use of the 10% hydroquinone. I really hope that if there is anyone out there that is experiencing hyper-pigmented skin and is looking for a solution that they would give this product a try, if you don't like it, return it. As I mentioned earlier, I noticed a significant difference right away. Less than two weeks and I am no longer using a concealer under my makeup! I will be ordering this product today!
    great product

    I've used tretinoin and other retinA products, but they don't seem to rub in. I have seen good results with the Lytera - noticed them after about 1 month of use. Although expensive, I recommend waiting for a good rebate or sale and taking the plunge.

    I had some areas of hyperpigmentation on my cheeks and was using hydroquinone cream for that didn't seem to be working. I started using this product and have really noticed a difference in the last month. I've gotten a lot of compliments on my skin. The areas of discoloration have really improved!
    So far, so good

    I have been using this product for almost two weeks...it's too early too tell but so far I like it. I have no harsh reaction or break outs. I just hope it will do what it says and that I will see results in 4 weeks or longer. I bought this after reading a review that I found online. I have hyperpigmentation/dark spots from laser and acid peels from the past. I've been using Shiseido White Lucent Intensive Spot Targeting Serum for three months with little results and was looking for a replacement. I refused to shell out another $170 for a less than two ounce bottle and I'm glad I found Lytera. It's cheaper and you get two ounces! The product is not fragrance free but it's not overpowering at all. The initial smell is like cinnamon gum but after 30 seconds it's gone. I will update in 4 weeks!

    This product is NOT fragrance free in the least, I can't believe they would blab how it works "without irritation" considering how many people are sensitive to fragrance in their skin products. The fragrance is strong and does not fade away. I personally find it very offputting and wish I could return the product simply because of the awful fragrance.
