This is the perfect complement to my hyperpigmentation-battling routine and it has really enhanced the effectiveness of my regimen! My spots are noticeably lighter and my skin is smoother as well! My only concern was that about halfway through the bottle, I noticed that product darkened. I contacted Arcona, and the woman I talked to extremely helpful. They will gradually change over the packaging to an opaque bottle to slow the vitamin c from oxidizing. (That said, the vitamin c content is only 1%, but still.) Very excited about this product and will definitely purchase again! (Caveat: hyperpigmentation is really difficult to treat and everyone's skin responds differently to different lightening ingredients. I incorporate a number of products that provide many different ingredients known to be effective in treating hyperpigmentation except HQ. It has taken me YEARS of diligent use and experimentation to see results. In other words, it will take time but you'll get there eventually!)

Best Lightener without Glycolic Acid

This is a really great product. It works in just one night. It reduced my acne scars from pregnancy in only a night. I love this because it's gentler than glycolic acid products and doesn't irritate my skin. Not for day time use, as it gets oily under makeup.

Skin Lightener or Darkener?

When I first saw this product was available, I thought it would be exactly what I needed, especially since I'm a huge fan of Arcona products. However, within the first couple weeks of use, I noticed that my hyperpigmentation actually appeared to be worsening/darkening. I was doing all the right things, wearing sunscreen religiously (I use the Arcona brand of this as well), wearing hats anytime sun would have the opportunity to touch my face, etc. I googled everything I could to see if this was "normal" and, ultimately, ended up contacting Acrona customer care to ask them. Their response was, "The darkening of the pigment is normal and means that the product is working well. It will slough off soon and you will have brighter more even skin." However, now I've been using the product for a couple months, and it's continuing to get worse - not better. I went to my dermatologist today, let him know Arcona's response, and he told me that in no way should this product be making my hyperpigmentation darker and to stop use. So, needless to say, I'm very disappointed. I had just ordered an additional bottle with the hope that this was all going to pay off and the darkening really was normal - but now I have to return it.
