    OK

    I like the texture and my skin is brighter but I do not like the smell of this product. The scent goes away once it is absorbed.

    It works

    Watched a YouTube video of two dermatologist talking about pigmentation as I had a few marks randomly appear on my neck and it was embarrassing. It was on for 3 months! After two weeks using this and the Tran exam if acid treatment from inkylist I have noticed that it is clearing up.

    No more waiting for a year to see a dermatologist

    Good prdoduct BAD packaging

    The product itself is all fine and good but the packaging sucks, it leaks constantly and the tube is hard to squeeze to get product out once its halfway gone. Bad quality packaging seems to be a consistent problem with the inkey list in my experience.

    As far as the product itself, I saw small reduction in redness on my face I think. It feels nice on the skin and sinks in quickly.

    Quality product

    Texture is very pleasant, sinks into skin in no time. No visible results yet as I have only used this for a week or so but previously Arbutin has been the only ingredient to actually lighten my dark spots.

    No thank you

    After finishing the second bottle I think that I have the right to tell that this product didn’t do anything for my skin. I have tiny little sun damage spots on my face but even though I have used this alongside with the tranexamic acid, I didn’t see any differ in the spots nor lightening up on my face. A second thing I really wanna mention is that the second bottle I have used differed in colour of the texture. My first experience was a white milky cream colour (like shown on the site) the second bottle was darker more brownish. I have contacted the aftersales but they told me that it was common that colour could differ. I found this weird. So for me no orders for this one anymore.

    The INKEY List UK

    Hi Dilek! We're sorry to hear you did not see much results. Sun damage can be a long concern to battle and it may take even 6 months to start seeing results. If you're being very consistent with your routine and using all right ingredients and are still not noticing the results - we would definitely recommend to get in touch with a dermatologist who can assist with a further treatment! 🖤 The Alpha Arbutin serum can oxidise due to the nature of ingredients, however as long as it's within its date of use, this is absolutely safe to use.
