Most Helpful Positive Review Great AHA Product for dry mature skin
I received Urban Skin Rx Brighter Days Dark Spot 8% AHA Polish, free in exchange for my honest opinion concerning the above mentioned product. I normally don't use a polisher and have very dry mature skin but I was interested in trying this product as I have used Urban Skin Rx Super C Brightening Serum which I love. After cleansing, I applied the polish. The texture is similar to a scrub and claims to double as a mask. I applied a thin layer and gently exfoliated, rinsed it off followed by my moisturizer. I felt I really saw the benefits the next morning when my skin looked glowing and brighter. I liked the idea of it having a dual function of mask and scrub. I don't know if it would remove my age spots but do believe, that it would help diminish the look of them. I would buy this product because of it's dual function of mask and exfoliator. I really liked the smell and feel of the product and have recommended it to friends. A big plus with the product is that it did not seem to dry out my dry skin and I did not have a skin reaction to it as my skin is slightly sensitive and I do not use exfoliators as they are too harsh. Overall, I would recommend this exfoliator for brightening but also as a gentle alternative for dry sensitive skin looking for a scrub.
Most Helpful Critical Review It's a 7 minute commitment
This Brighter Days Dark Spot 8% AHA Polish did a good job of evening out my skin tone and making my face look brighter. My skin has a tendency to look a bit dull and patchy in spots. This Polish made my skin look clearer and more radiant. Too much sun exposure in my younger years (often times w/o adequate sunscreen) helped contribute to my dry skin. I am always looking for ways to exfoliate and remove the dead skin. This Polish gave my skin a more balanced look w/ some added sheen. I can't say that it lightened up the dark spots though nor did it address any fine lines - as the product claims it will. Can't say that I noticed any improvement there. The Polish is simple to use, but I must say that I did find it a bit too time consuming. You MUST clean your face first as this isn't a cleanser. You rub the Polish on for 1-2 minutes after cleaning and then leave it on for 5 minutes. I find that I don't have the 7 minutes required for this product all the time (I use mine in the shower). Other exfoliator brands require less time and that works better for me. I do like the beads in this Polish and it definitely feels like it is working to exfoliate the dead skin cells to help regenerate a new skin feel/appearance. I use my Polish w/ my facial brush in the shower to help remove even more dead skin & to help smooth out any bumps. I would probably purchase this again due to my skins improved texture, more balanced look & feel, and improved clarity. However, I can't say I will always be able to give it the 7 minute treatment it requires.

I will not be using this too much from Mount holly, NJ
Worked well for me and made my skin really soft and smooth and brighter, but I found that it broke out my skin some and made marks on my face that weren't there before after I rinsed it off
I love this!
aniyah from michigan
I love this product! The beads in it are small enough to where it's not rough on my face and it leaves my face feeling soooo soft afterwards. After using consistently for almost 3 weeks, I have seen my dark spots fading (not as fast as I wish though lol) I love this brand! I definitely recommend
It does work!!!!!
Nean from Michigan
I was a bit hesitant about using this product but I started off using it every other day . I had a pimple on my forehead which left a mark. So the smell was very pleasant not as what I expected for a lighting cream. Well my spot isn't completely gone but it has faded a lot and I am very pleased!!! I will continue to use it !!!!

Left my skin looking so smooth, clean and fresh!
Great Skin Polish
HotToddy08 from West Chester, PA
This is a great skin cleanser / polish! The small micro exfoliating beads help to really make my face cleaner and tighter and clean when I wash it. I love when my skin has that extra clean feel when I'm done! As a person who's struggled with adult acne I got really excited about the claim that it could potentially lighten dark spots as that's been my skin struggle after a breakout most of my life! While I can't say I've seen a marked improvement I've definitely seen some improvement BUT as my face is containing to break out the cycle continues. ::sigh:: I received this face wash free in exchange for my honest feedback.
Works with consistency
LosingStephanie from Texas
I love the small exfoliating beads in this products. The beads along with the AHA work together to gently and effectively even my skin tone. The only con I have is that it's hard to wash off the product. I like to use this in the shower so it's not such a messy process
Inga3777 from Henderson Nevada
This product has done wonders for skin. So far is so blessing. I use this usually three times a week and saw improvement honestly the next morning. My hyperpigmentation has improved significantly within the past three weeks. Along with using my Gleamin facemask.
Sb from New York

Must Have To Add To Your Skin Collection
BreD from Louisiana
I absolutely love Urban Skin Rx's Brighter Days Dark Spot 8% AHA Polish! The polish isn't too harsh and is an excellent exfoliator for my skin! I have also noticed a beautiful glow in my skin as well! It is definitely a must have for your collection!
Clean pores and brighter skin.
Marie03 from North Carolina
It does a good job of scrubbing off any dead skin I have without being too harsh. I was pleasantly surprised it removed stubborn black heads out of my nose and it minimizes the size of my pores. My skin felt so fresh and bright the next morning.
Another Great Product!!!
kashw from Atlanta, GA
I have used many products by Utban Skin Rx and this one did not disappoint. I have had dark spots on my face for years like acne spots and I have using the other products that n the brand to see if it would help clear my face. I feel like this was the last touch needed in order to clear my skin. I have seen amazing results with the product and cannot wait to see how it will continue to help with future use. I will say that you definitely want to make sure you follow all the directions and keep up with a routine.
Worth the process
Jess from Alabama
I am in love with urban skin Rx products. I will say that they are extremely strong so beware if you have sensitive skin. I'm a stay at home mom so I'm mainly in the house so I can deal with any dryness that may come. This stuff leaves my skin glowing and I love it.
Elizabeth from Georgia
I am starting to see my skin transition to smoother and clear skin. My skin is now smooth and fresh. The scars are barely noticeable. The older skin on my face has peeled off to reveal glowing skin. My dark spots are getting lighter everyday. I am happy with the results of this product.
Juicee from Americus, Ga
Brighter Days Dark Spot 8% AHA Polish is a game changer. It's easy to apply. I apply it the shower and give my face a good scrub let it sit for 2 min and voila bright glowy skin. It has a gritty texture which is good for scrubbing and it leaves your face clean and moisturized. I highly recommend.
Dark spot polish
Rosie from Florida
This product was just average for me. It broke my skin out in the beginning. I did continue to use it and I didn't break out again. As far as the dark spot correction, I didn't see a lot of results .
Helpful in places other than the face
Javkie from Alexandria,VA
This product was very helpful in exfoliating my bikini line area. I would only recommend using it 3 times a week and sunblock is a must.
Stripped, Bone-Dry, Squeaky, Tight Skin
TakiyahLouise from USA
*The Urban Skin Rx Brighter Days Dark Spot 8% AHA Polish was provided to me free of charge in exchange for my review.
This product contains acids & extracts as well as a physical, gritty scrub component to aid in exfoliating, smoothing & brightening skin. To me, the scent was faintly citrus & reminiscent of Flintstone vitamins. The product color seemed to be a faint yellow-cream with tiny orange grits in it. The product texture is like a slightly oily, light lotion with tiny grains of sand in it.
I'm familiar with & use varying acids & extracts in toners & serums in my regular face care routine - I 100% discontinued use of them while using the Urban Skin Rx Brighter Days Dark Spot 8% AHA Polish. I continued to wear sunscreen. I used this product twice a week for about 6 weeks in order to leave a thorough review. Upon rinsing my whole face after the very first use I was immediately met with stripped, bone-dry, squeaky, tight skin comparable to the very few times I was reduced to washing my face with bar soap like a savage when I unexpectedly ran out of my regular face wash. However, my face was undeniably smooth. I then opted to only spot treat with this product on one of two less than dime-sized spots of discoloration. Unfortunately, I saw no discernible difference color-wise between the small spot I used nothing on & the small spot I used the Urban Skin Rx Brighter Days Dark Spot 8% AHA Polish on after about 6 weeks of use twice a week.
Gjes from Ny
I have been using my urban skin rx brighter days dark spot polish for a few weeks now and my skin looks amazing. I had a lot of farm spots from previous acne breakouts and this polish has cleared up and lightened my spots so much. It absorbs well into my skin, I apply it before bed and wake up with smoother skin and a nice glow
Great Dark Spot Lightener
HopeAll from Birmingham, AL
After using this polish for a couple of weeks, I could definitely see a difference with my acne scars. This has been, by far, the best AHA that I have used. I could see the difference in my skin after the first use (my skin was smoother). This has become a staple item in my skincare routine that, thanks to this product, has become much simpler with only a few steps.
