Not what it is cracked up to be
Posted 8/28/2014 by Sheila
I have used several bottles of this over the past year to try to lighten dark spots on my face due to sun damage and I just do not see any difference then before I started using it.
The only thing I did notice that it has done for me is to add additional hydration to my skin.
I will not be repurchasing this when mine is gone.
Worked great on acne hyper pigmentation
Posted 8/30/2011 by EB
I have/had a bunch of marks due to cystic acne breakouts. The marks last anywhere from one to two months with new ones showing up every week. This product is fantastic at clearing up existing and preventing new marks. It takes a while to start seeing the difference - but for someone who won't use Hydroquinone and spent a year and a half exploring a number of alternative products, I couldn't ask for better.
Worked great on my melasma!

I went to my dermatologist a few years ago to get help for my melasma (darker areas on my face - I am caucasian). She did a Blue Peel and told me to use the Phyto+ as part of my new skin regimine. I used it religiously every night before bed. The peel made my skin look fresh, smooth, and took away some of my melasma but not all of it. The Phyto+ broke up the rest of my melasma and made it start to fade away. (She prescribed 4% Hydroquinone at 1st, but I had a bad allergic reaction to it - so she said use Phyto+ instead). I used the Phyto+ till I ran out of it and just ordered some more through this website. I can't wait to use it to get rid of the rest of my discolorations. It does lightly tint/stain the skin that you put it on and if you use your fingers to apply it, your fingers will be green too. After you take your shower and apply your lotion/moisturizer, the green tint will be gone.
Melanin Production Interrupted
Posted 1/12/2008 by VH
Per the SkinCeuticals description of Phyto+, its active ingredients interrupt melanin production. I am 49 years old and without any wrinkles. As a black woman and a sun-loving tennis player, I know that my melanin is my built in sunscreen; a huge reason for the great skin. I do not want to interrupt the melanin production. Hence, I only use Phyto+ as a spot treatment on a hyper-pigmented area and after a deep cleansing facial. But, for only about a week after the facial.

I am so in love with this product!!! I have been using it for about three weeks now and I have noticed a huge difference! My face is one beautiful caramel color. I am an esthetician and my skin is scrutinized on a daily basis. I will be using this product for a very long time!!!
