Hyperpigmentation, melasma, sun spots, whatever you call the darker areas on your face it’s just a huge bummer that makes skin appear older than it really is. I’ve been fighting with some spotting on my forehead and chest for a while now (thanks to irresponsible tanning bed use in my teens and early 20′s) and this stuff has really put a noticeable dent in my dark splotches.
Phyto + uses old faithful Kojic Acid along with a few other skin lightening stars to gently fade away discolored skin without the use of hydroquinone. It’s also a great lightweight hydrator for sensitive skin since it’s botanically based and light as air.
I haven’t tried anything from SkinCeuticals over the years that I haven’t loved. My facialist noticed a lightening after I used Phyto + for just 3 weeks on my dark spotting that’s 10+ years old. Sure it’s a little pricey ($78) but it works.
