    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.

                  Comments about Retinol Skin Brightener:

                  I have used there night and anti-wrinkle products and I love them. However this stuff made my whole face break out in pimples. It was so bad. I do NOT have sensitive skin and products don't make me break out so when this happened, it was horrific. It been a week later and they still haven't cleared all the way up. PLEASE be careful, I have never been this self conscious about my face until now. It is not only pimply but there are bumps all over too. Ugg I just hope it didn't do permanent damage.

                      Awesome Product! After only three days of beginning to use Retinol brightener, my skin showed noticeable results. Co-workers started commenting that I looked younger, and I never said a word. I just soaked up the compliments. Wow! I've been using it ever since...everyday, morning & night for over a year now.

                          My elbows tend to get discolored; the application of this product is beneficial to achieve a normal skin tone for this area of my body.
