    Comments about Proactiv Advanced Dark Spot Correcting Serum:

    I looked into dark spot remover because I am pregnant with my second child (im 28) and started noticing dark skin that I feel makes me look I have a mustache on my upper lip. I selected this product because I used proactive as a teenager so I trust the brand and the price was reasonable compared to other products with similar ratings that were much more expensive.
    I am 4 days in 4 DAYS!!!! and the dark spots from this pregnancy & my first pregnancy are almost gone. My very minimal acne scaring -- spots that kind of look like active pimples but are easily concealed with makeup, seem to be taking a little longer, but hey, only 4 days in, i'm sure they will start to disappear. I couldn't be happier. I have all white linens so i'm not sure if it bleaches stuff or not. Iv used it twice a day everyday. I'm very impressed. my skin overall seems brighter and softer. No burning, peeling or weird side effects. I typically feel burning from topical skin treatments, but nothing with this.

                    Comments about Proactiv Advanced Dark Spot Correcting Serum:

                    I am conservative with money but I did splurge on this product and I'm glad I did. I've had acne on my chin for 15-20 years. Between this product and the emergency blemish product I can now go without make up if I want to. This has helped with the redness I would get after the pimple was gone. GREAT PRODUCT!!!!

                        A:

                        You may use our Advanced Dark Spot Correcting Serum before OR after step 3 in our system, but we would recommend using it between steps 2 and 3. Also, be sure to use with an SPF if you have sun exposure.
