    It's been three (3) weeks since i have been using these products and so far no changes in my spots or my skin. Now the products are irritating my skin. I am trying to be patience and use them maybe every other day if my skin will allow it to, as i am so desperate to get rid of these hyper-pigmentation as nothing seems to work and hoping there will be some changes.
    love your skin

    Love this skin brightening system! For immediate gratification, I get a nice glow, but in time ( 3 months) you see a big change in the appearance of fine lines and radiance (in my case). As I have no dark spots, I cannot comment nor judge that particular benefit. If you are thinking of trying it, be ready to give this regimen three months for most amazing results. For sensitive skin, I recommend maintaining the retinol usage at every other third day. Make sure you take at least a couple of months off this regimen after the allotted three months.Oh, and please, please lather on the sunblock! Enjoy!

    This product is actually very good. The "irritation" mentioned above is most likely because the product is working. Your skin will be "gently" exfoliated in order to fade the dark spots and brighten the skin. I've never experienced anything near the drying and burning that a chemical peel will cause but I've gotten just as good of a result with this product. One thing my dermatologist mentioned is the importance of wearing protective (SPF 30) moisturizer/makeup/or sunscreen EVERY SINGLE DAY. Also, it is important to reapply every 90 minutes. (I keep one of those chap stick type applicators in my purse and swipe over my problem area if I ever feel the sun beating on my skin during the day.) Without proper protection, your results may not be as noticeable because you would be exposing your skin to freshly exfoliated skin (making it even more likely to develop new spots or darken whats already there).

    I'm happy for you guys that these products work for you. Unfortunately, it made my skin worst than what it was. I took a break from it and start using it every other day as advised by one of the esthetician and no changes, just pure irritation. Guess my skin is too sensitive. I'm now seeing a new dermatologist and she really knows hers stuff and i'm happy with the results. Good luck guys:}
