Most Helpful Positive Review Think it is working really well for unintended purposes lol
Hey! I felt the need to post a review even though I am only still working through a handful of sample packets I was given at Ulta. I haven't been using this as dilligently/consistently as I probably should for treating specific pimples but it does seem to be doing something to quickly dry them up when I have. I got these before going away on a trip and there was a spa facial involved somewhere in there that time. Since then the mayhem of getting home and getting back into a normal routine. That said, with a renewed interest in upping my skincare level after my facial I decided to go start using the gift card I received at Christmas. One product I felt the need to finally go buy for myself was the Daily Superfoliant. I LOVE the microfoliant and remembered this being the new and improved. So I started my new skincare regime over the weekend using that. I have a few small breakouts that I believe are due to my super deep cleansing/pore purging taking place. A few comadones and forming pimples (spelling?) that are being kicked into gear. I decided to start actively applying this Age Bright Spot Fader yesterday to see if it helps cause they are there anyway, right?
Maybe it's just the combination of stuff I started doing this weekend but I applied a good amount of this to to both my chin and on my cheek where little breakouts are starting today. Also applied some to the area between my eyebrows above my nose where I am still trying to reduce some post-breakout mess from before my trip.
Just as my review headline states: I think this may be working very well in a rather unintended way as I no sooner I applied it today HOLY WOW has the skin in both chin and eyebrow area firmed up!! I seem to be inheriting little 11's and fine lines between my brows at the top of the bridge of my nose and my skin under my mouth is, too, often very loose. I just turned 36 and starting to show signs of where aging is going to occur first .
Firm smooth and bright, now. Wow.
Most Helpful Critical Review Is it supposed to clear pimples and age spots??
The product says age bright spot fader which leads me to believe it fades age spots but the instructions imply it should be used on break outs, like pimples. I guess I'm confused how and where to use it. Going online really didnt help so I went ahead and applied it to both a dark/age spot and a blemish. The applicator is awesome, it's a flat flexible rubber tip, like a finger, which makes application easy. I applied it twice a day, as instructed to both a pimple and an age spot. The smell wasn't terrible and it did not burn or irritate my skin.
I am a huge dermalogica fan and their products usually have great results. This one was just okay. I didn't see an improvement in the time it took the pimple to go away and I can't tell you if it made the spot get any less noticeable after healing, because that's just unknown. The age spots were subtly lighter, and the skin felt good where the product was used.
Overall, still not sure of the audience or age group, older people with age spots and pimples? Just seems like a multi purpose product that missed the target.

It is great, especially for ones that I notice are starting to pop out, this product has taken care of them since I have received it two weeks ago. Love it!
Great for breakouts caught early
KB from Texas
I wasn't sure about this one because it didn't do much for active breakouts for me, but when used early enough it works really well. I woke up one morning with one of those painful, deep under the skin lumps that I knew was going to become a terrible pimple. I used this in the morning and at night for two days and it never even turned into a pimple, it just went away completely. I've used other 2% salicylic acid gels and they never worked that well for me. I still use this on full blown breakouts, but it really works best when you can catch the breakout early.
Worth Its Weight in Gold!
MB from Midwest
I am 50 years old and have dealt with adult acne since my 20s. I have an olive complexion, so any time I get a zit, my skin darkens as it heals. This is the FIRST product I've ever come across that not only gets rid of the zit, but also keeps a dark spot from forming as it heals. It works! Zits don't last as long, and I don't get a dark spot, or if I do, it's very minimal and doesn't last long either. It is pricey, but you use very little, and the packaging enables you to use only what you need. A tube lasts me about 6 months, and I use it almost every day.

This is a great product, esp. for maskne-. Unlike other breakout treatments, this does not cause dry, flaky skin. Your skin looks nice when you use it, and it more quickly eliminates the breakout.
Don't put this on your pimples!
Jess from Boulder, CO
I've applied this twice a day, for the last 3+ months. I have noticed my sunspots and acne scars improve ever so slightly. I still have another bottle of the stuff so I'm hoping I'll see the results I want (clear skin) after using it for a year. I know that this is a long term game so I don't mind waiting.
However, I would absolutely not put this on any active pimple. I tried that for over two months, thinking that maybe it was just my skin getting used to the product, but without exception any pimple was much worse with this gel — it seemed to clog my pimples so they looked worse and (I think) took a longer to heal than they would have if I just left them alone.
Worth every penny!
rker22 from WA
I read the reviews and decided to try this product because I am having bad hormonal breakouts. This product totally does the trick. My acne is clearing up and it is helping the redness go away. I have used this less than a week and already see a huge difference. Totally worth the money!
I could see myself purchasing again
Nichole from San Jose
Had very high expectations. Ultimately I would say it did it's job but took longer than I thought with a few minor problems. Applied 5 days in a row in total on some of my most problematic scars. After the second day found all the areas i had applied it to, to be very flaky and scab like. Me being over dramatic thought my scars were bad they were not in reality but after applying they were like 3x worse so much more noticeable and the dryness was very annoying. I had to wait for all of the spots to peel in order to see a difference and I did may have to repeat this whole cycle to get them where I want them and I can't same I'm thrilled about the process but I will do it again for the reward. Can't say anyone else would have the same experience but I'd say even if there is a risk there's also a reward.
I would buy this product again and again

I love this product, it will reduce any breakout significantly, it's the best product I have ever tried!!
Aunt D from Michigan
Super simple to use. No mess or transfer on your pillow. Dries out the pimple quickly without any harshness. No weird smell or crazy color for all to see. Wish I would have discovered this sooner. It really works great on my super sensitive skin.
Great at fading dark spots
Lindsey from Illinois
I have been using the product for about two weeks and almost all of the dark spots on my cheeks are gone! It is kind of pricey but worth every penny. Wish I had knew about it sooner.
Jenny from Colorado
Clears big trouble zits within days.
Doesn't prevent breakouts but reduces the size and appearance of ugly massive zits brewing under the skin.
would not recommend

I really wanted this product to work on my post-acne marks. Unfortunately, I did not see any improvements.
I would 100% buy this product again

I absolutely LOVE this product. Not only does it help fade away break outs and blemishes it also helped to take away the small sun spots I had. It also is very light and non greasy
Great treatment to rid you of blemishes
carymom from cary, nc
After all these years, I still get blemishes. And they linger for months. This treatment started clearing them in two uses. Best of all, it doesn't make skin dry and flaky to do so. Skin looks better and feels better with this than anything I have ever used.
claire from ireland
I have recently started using the dermalogica oily skin products and absolutely loved how they helped my skin so decided to try a new spot treatment instead of the usual sudocream routine... well do I regret that decision I honestly ended up with 6 cysts on my face SIX 😳 I would be prone to one or two each month but thats it! This product just flared my skin something awful!! It really was horrible thank god for the Neutrogena Hydro mask and sudocream!! It saved my skin after what this did! I cant believe how bad it reacted on my face
Rose from Louisiana
Smells good, easy applicator tip. Works amazing
Elena from Florida
This product was honestly so great for me. I have a fair complextion, so when I get a pimple it is really red and it's hard to not see it if you decide not to wear makeup. I just put this on at night where my pimple is or even redness and it takes it away, lightening the redness so it's not as noticeable. Would definitely recommend this to everyone who has breakouts and wants them to not be as red and noticeable.
Kelly from Pennsylvania
I love this product! I have very stubborn acne scarring and have never found anything that fades the scars completely. This product works immediately, I see results when I wake up in the morning after applying it before I go to bed. Going to buy again just so I know I'll have it when I run out of my first!
Cait from Wallkill, NY
I use the spot fader twice a day and I put it on over my moisturizer. It definitely works because I saw results the next day. My skin looks and feels smoother
I would not rebuy this
Cass from Cincinnati
I have used this product for 2 months now on current acne and recent acne marks. It has not helped to diminish active pimples, and caused hyperpigmentation on the spots used when the pimples naturally faded. This has also made my current hyperpigmentation from recent pimples worse. Buyer beware, you can see entire constellations on my chin from the marks I was left with.
TT from FL
Wow. I'm not sure what kind of voodoo cream this is, Dermalogica, but you had me at the first hello. It not only makes your spots rapidly disappear, but fades any possible mark left behind!!! Nothing compares to this (I've tried many spot treatments), and I will happily hand over my money. Thank you.
Iqra from New York East meadow
After all the positive reviews I was so excited to try this product, but it just did not work for me. While I did notice it did not minimize appearance of current breakouts or older marks.i used the face wash which help me a lot to clear my acne but I noticed now after applying this I had more pimples.

I am so in love with this product! It makes my pimples go away sooo fast and has made several spots on my face vanish. It is the best spot treatment I have ever owned!
accutane & acne scarring
Acne scarring LIFE SAVER from Baton Rouge, LA
So I'm not sure if I should be using this with accutane (currently on month 4, almost 5) and its really cleared me up but left some nasty scars/dark spots. I've only been using this product for about 4-5 days and I swear some of those spots are COMPLETELY gone!!! Like obviously I still have some, but it's reduced a lot!! I'm so glad I bought this! (FYI I put it on top of my moisturizer after it sets in and keeps me from getting dried out & only use it at night)
