quickly seeing improvement in hyperpigmentation
I had been interested in this product for a while and finally picked some up, since my hyperpigmentation and redness had gotten to a point that it felt like a mask covering most of my face even when i wasn't breaking out. I have not been using this for long, but will update with long term results since i expect to be continuing use long term. In the few days i have been using it (morning and night on a moist face after cleansing) it has really calmed the overwhelming redness. I'm sensitive to smells and this product is very perfume-y but it fades and does not upset my stomach. I'm currently using the normal to dry formula. Its not the best fit for my oily t zone but was the only one they had at my local target. In the future i think i will order the normal to oily formula online. This is also very reasonably priced. The reason i was interested in this was mostly because it boasts vitamin B3 as one of the main ingredients. My sample size jar lists it second after water, though i noticed some online ingredient lists put it third or fourth.

Loved It
I had some really bad scars and with time it helped them fade away. Used without toner is fine and it did work for me. But with toner as a moisturizer my skin is a lot nicer. Work well with my oily skin and I have been using it for years now.

I purchased this based on the reviews here because lately I've noticed my skin appearing dry (I have a naturally oily skin type) even though I have been using the regimen for two years. I know it is marketed as a dark spot remover but I only needed it for the moisture. After the second night I put this on my face I broke out with cystic acne on my cheeks and small zits all over my forehead which is hard to do because I never get anything on my forehead. After discontinuing it my face started to clear back up and now I'm just left with the cystic acne healing :/ Also, that same night I put some on my neck and my neck was itchy the whole night and I woke up to my neck having red rings around where the creases are on your neck....

I read an article about hyperpigmentation that mentioned this product and bought a sample size of it. I have been hooked ever since. I am really surprised by how much I love this. My skin is moisturized without being oily (and my skin is naturally oily). My acne has been at an all time low since puberty. I switched to this product and now I only have hormonal breakouts once a month with only one or two zits that go away within a day or two. I can't really see a drastic difference in my hyperpigmentation but I can see that my scars aren't as dark. It takes about four weeks to see any results so don't expect instant results. I really am surprised by how great this is and can't recommend it enough.

How is it now

matte finish
does not clog pores
oil reduction
fades post acne marks
reduces redness


stings a little when you first put it on
you have to use a lot to moisturize well

Hands down, this is the best moisturizer for oily acne prone skin, I have tried them all. This does not break you out. The vitamin B3 (niacinamide) reduces redness and fades post acne marks! Not greasy! Leaves a faint white film that makes your face look nice and matte. Absorbs oil! This is the BEST...seriously!!!!
