I was looking for an oil-free, hydroquinone-free lightening serum and this seemed to fit the bill. I also liked the naturally derived ingredients. (My skin is oily in the summer, combination the rest of the year; Iím prone to hormonal breakouts and my skin can get dull very easily. I used a glycolic acid peel, Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle pads, every other night or as frequently as every night if my skin needs it.) The texture is very light and absorbs in 2-3 minutes, but is creamier and thicker than most serums. Thankfully it is not sticky. The bottle is heavy glass and with careful packing, didnít break on vacations. I have a dark spot on my forehead that Iíve been trying to get rid of for a while and I tried a number of products to take care of it. Iíve been loyal to SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF for years and I hoped adding another serum to my skincare routine would only increase the benefits. I splurged and also bought the Elure lightening treatment that Allure magazine raves about, but I didnít notice a thing. After the Elure was gone, I started to notice some lightening on my dark spot, but once my Phloretin CF ran out, the results stopped. So Iíve made the determination that everything good that happens to my skin is because of Phloretin CF. Vinoperfect was OK, it didnít break me out, but the lightening, brightening effects just werenít enough to buy again. Even though this was $79 USD and SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF is $160 USD, Iíd rather spend twice as much on a product that really delivers.

Claims: oil-free serum that improves the appearance of dark spots, promotes even skintone, and boosts radiance.Pros:- oil-free- light scent; almost unscented- combo skin did not react negatively- skin felt comfortably moisturized- hygienic eyedropper style dispenserCons:- still need SPF during day- still need night or day cream on top or else skin feels dry- no visible improvement or difference to skin- no oily sheenI have even skin tone and no visible scarring so I cannot attest to the effectives of the product claims. I have one small dark spot on the cheek which did not lighten. One drop on each cheek and forehead means the bottle lasts me a long time. I used it under a day cream and Vinosource Quenching Sorbet-creme at night. Would not repurchase to fix dark spots or even skintone.(1=bad, 2=disappointing, 3=good but may find comparable others, 4=good but not holy grail, 5=one of the best or possibly irreplaceable)

I have emptied one fullsize bottle. It lasted me 6 months. I did not see any change in my skintone. So this was useless for me.

I really hoped I wouldn't like this serum but my extremely finicky, acne-prone and aging skin seems to love it. I prefer to use it as a moisturizer. This summer (with temps topping 100 degrees in Arizona), I just didn't need a moisturizer. I used this on top of my Acne.org BP or over Tazorac (on alternating nights with one or two nights off). I found that it absorbed quickly, played well with my makeup and most importantly, did not break me out! I wonder if those who are breaking out from it (outside of being sensitive to the ingredients) might be adding more moisture where it's not needed. I did find that it seemed to brighten (even my heavily hyper pigmented, African American skin) and left my skin with a subtle glow. My primary complaint? The value. I noticed that using this twice daily, I was halfway through this $80 bottle in three weeks! I have no problem saving my pennies to purchase a product that I find effective but at the 2x daily rate, this wouldn't have lasted me a month. Luckily, I have other products I can use on off nights. Nonetheless, this will remain a staple in my regimen.

I have been using the product for over a year. Whenever I get scarring this helps my skin heal so much faster. I also find my skin seems to be more resilient against bad scarring over long term use. I like to use this alternating with other products. If I use it daily I don't notice as big of a difference compared to using it once every other or once every couple of days. With my oily skin I do not use this during the day or under makeup. I will only apply at night with the night infusion cream. I will keep buying this because I believe it works for me it's only a shame that it costs to much. I end up just waiting till there is a VIB deal at Sephora.

The serum is like a milky lotion, which is to apply and absorbs quickly. I've been using it every day for close to 3 months now and I think it will last another couple of weeks. So it does last a decent amount of time/However, I've not noticed any change in my complexion and I wouldn't buy it agin.

I've only used this a week, but I believe it is an excellent product. It is already working, and feels like perfection, soaking right into my skin. Would repurchase.Edit: I've now been using this for several months, and I still believe it is an excellent product. It's helping to speed up my acne scar's healing time.

This serum is quite pleasant to use, but that's about it. It did nothing to my complexion. It did not brighten it, and it did not fade my brown spots, not even by one shade. My skin feels smoother after applying it, but no more than any other serums/moisturizers.I would not re-purchase, it's not worth the money.

I'm on my second bottle of this stuff and I love it! I bought it to help fade some hyperpigmentation/ post acne marks, and I noticed a difference in less than a week. All of my old marks are almost completely gone now. The only visible marks I currently have are from a recent breakout and this stuff helps clear up new acne marks much faster than anything else I've used. It also makes your skin look brighter, overall. It's not at all irritating, the only downfall is the price. I waited several weeks to repurchase after I finished my first bottle, asking myself "was it worth it?" and obviously it was, because I coughed up the $80 again and have no regrets!
