    Comments about Retinol Skin Brightener:

    I happened on this product standing in line at a store, and noticed it. Took a chance on it, and I have noticed a difference in my skin. I'm 59, with lots of discoloration. I don't know if the spots have lighted, but my skin is much brighter and looks less "old".
    I have not noticed the smell.
    I only use it in the morning, but based on some of the other reviews, may start using at night also.

      Comments about Retinol Skin Brightener:

      I didn't give this 5 stars only due to the smell. However, the smell dissipates quickly. The results you get from this are worth the fleeting stink. It's an inexpensive product that works well. I can forgive the smell for that. Give it a try. I plan on buying a few more in case they are ceasing production on the product. I like it that much.

        Comments about Retinol Skin Brightener:

        I absolutely love this line of product, and I think it's the best kept secret in the beauty industry. I'm only 22 but this (and the anti-aging serum) are the only two things that I have ever tried that can clear up my acne. Within a month of using this product my moderate acne had cleared up and within 3 months my skin was flawless. Not everyone's skin is the same, but for me this is fantastic!

              So far I really like this product and it does seem to be working. The smell was initially off putting but it's grown on me. Overall I would say this was a good and cheap alternative to the more expensive brand products.

                  Love this, evens your skin tone on your hands and face. It is also taking care of an annoying freckle I have had on my lip for years!

                      Comments about Retinol Skin Brightener:

                      My dermatologist recommended a luxury brand skin brightener that she carries. It was just shy of $100. I trust her so I bought it. She recommended one pump on my face and a second spread on my hands and neck. When I saw this, I purchased it for my hands and neck, saving the more expensive exclusively for my face. Both were effective, I can't tell the difference. I'm a 54-year old freckled blonde who didn't start taking care of my skin til I was in my early 30s. When my luxe brand runs out, I will definitely switch to Retinol brand skin brightener... Also, please note this is only a brightener. I apply moisturizer with sunscreen over mine after I give this time to set -- at least two minutes, per my derm's recommendation.
