    Comments about ULTA Radiant Skin Brightening Serum:

    Still testing but so far I like this. I am combo oily acne prone who is oddly sensitive to ingredients and still trying to figure out what is bothering my skin. I was looking for something without glycerin so I thought I would give this one a try. It comes in a pump which I like. Ulta often has deals so wait for one. It looks like a creamy lotion (very lightweight) but turns a slight pinkyish color when you start rubbing it together in your palm. Somehow this provides moisture while feeling super light and it doesn't make me oily at all. After a few days of using I noticed a difference in the moisture level of my skin. I use during the day and I have been using for a at least a month I think so still waiting to see if it causes breakouts but so far ok. I have been mixing in a couple of drops of watermelon seed oil also. Anyway I will repurchase for now and I am on my second bottle. I would buy more but Ulta has been out of stock online for months now. I hope they continue to make it because it moisturizes, makes a good base for makeup, and doesn't break me out.

      Comments about ULTA Radiant Skin Brightening Serum:

      I have never heard of or used this product. I received it in the "free sample" bag with a minimal purchase. I have faithfully used it for the past 2 weeks and I have to say that it makes my skin a little less oily and definitely has evened out my skin tone. Definitely would recommend this product.

                I did a test with this on my hand and I noticed a big difference. The little lines on my hands were smoother, the pores where my hairs are were smaller and my skin had a nice soft glow. Left is with serum, right is without.

                Comments about ULTA Radiant Skin Brightening Serum:

                I have been using this for about a month, and there are some things I really like about it. It has good, proven effective ingredients, it has a night texture, and I think it has helped brighten my skin. Plus, it works nicely to sheer out foundation, since the consistency is so light. Unfortunately, there is one big problem: it has glitter in it! To be fair it is very subtle glitter that can only be seen in the right lighting on close scrutiny, but I still don't feel comfortable putting glitter on my skin 2x daily every day. I will finish the bottle I bought (though I'll be discontinuing nighttime use), but I wont be buying again. Ulta: please make a glitter free version! That is a product I would re-buy over and over again!

                  Comments about ULTA Radiant Skin Brightening Serum:

                  I started using this product line, including the eye cream, about a month ago, and I've already ordered more! Two weeks after I started using them, I began to get compliments on my skin--which hasn't happened in a long time. My skin is brighter, with less redness, more even-toned, and even my wrinkles/fine lines seem softer. And, no breakouts! I apply a moisturizer over it, day and night, also containing Vitamin C.
                  And, you can't beat the price!

                  Comments about ULTA Radiant Skin Brightening Serum:

                  I bought this because of the "peptides and vitamin c" however after looking at the ingredient list and seeing that the brightening effect is just an added micro shimmer I will be returning this for a more natural, good for the skin product.
