I first got this serum through my Dr's office and immediately fell in love with it and now I purchase it from LovelySkin which is more convenient and not as expensive as what the MD was charging. It is a great serum and is always the first step in my skin care regime. It has noticeably improved the texture of my skin and is helping to even out some of the dark spots on my face. My other products layer over this without any "pilling" or stickiness and you don't need very much. Just a couple of squirts in your palms and then pat onto skin. Great product!
On the fence
I like most PCA products, very affordable for the most part. This serum though, I am on the fence. It has lightened my melasma on my top lip and seems to smooth my skin a bit, but the pump and alcohol content is horrible. It is very watery so you must use a lot to cover your face before the alcohol in it evaporates. This is probably why it is in a pump and not in dropper form for that reason. Constant air exposure would evaporate most of the serum from constant opening of the bottle. It has good ingredients for the most part, but my skin does not like retinol I discovered so it's not the product's fault. While it gave benefits, it also gave me cystic acne on my jawline and chin.
Really minimized my acne scarring
I have bad acne scarring. My skin changed a lot in my thirties. Im biracial and I scar badly, brown-purple, and I hate it. Im allergic to a lot of stuff, including hydroquinone. This stuff has made a HUGE difference in my acne scarring. I use it very liberally, twice a day, with other PCA skin products, and within a few weeks I could see and feel a huge difference, not just in new scars and breakouts, but in scars from five years ago. Deep scars and even "icepicks" were lightened and minimized. I hadnt seen such improvement since I was getting peels. Its a financial investment, but if it helps me feel better about my face, Im in it for the long haul. The consistency of this stuff is a tonic its liquid, not thick at all. It absorbs quickly. No smell, no burning. You would think it was just a colored water until a few weeks later and a huge patch on your cheek is now three distinct scars. Now this spot is really, really faded and Im so happy about it! Im on my second bottle of it (a bottle lasted me a month and a half because I use so much) and I cant recommend it enough.
I bought this on sale and it turned out being one of my favorites from PCA. I just dab on problem areas before bad and it works like magic!
This is a liquid, it would be easier to apply if it was even just a a bit thicker...but it works! Good under makeup, does not sting even when used twice daily. Feels very light.
hyperpigmentation be gone
I bought this looking for something to battle my hyperpigmentation without hydroquinone or at least give me more even complexion. I hadn't had for long when the bottle fell on the floor. Up until that point it wasn't obvious whether it was worth the cost. That was until I went without out it and noticed acne marks and other spots weren't clearing up as quickly. I immediately ordered another bottle. It works.
Love this product and what it has done and will continue to do for my skin. It makes my skin radiant and glowing and helps to promote clarity of the skin. It has eliminated old acne scars.
