Best alpha arbutin serum in the market

This alpha arbbutin has 2% which is perfect for my skin of color. It seriously did wonders when I layered it along with niacinamide 10% to fade my dark spots and hyperpigmentation and the results were outstanding. Highly recommended product from the inkey list

Discoloration of the serum Alpha Arbutin

I noticed a discoloration of the serum Alpha Arbutin and I threw it away. I opened a new one. What worried me, is that while it was intact, closed and stored properly, the color of this one is also light gray taupe. I live in a hot mediterranean climat, I'm wondering if this was the case and I don't know if I must stop using this. At the beginning of using Alpha Arbutin ( 2 years of continuous use, except summer) I saw an improvement, though while they were localized, last summer (I use sunscreen 365 days) I saw that my spots have spread all over my cheeks. Any advice welcome, I have confidence in your company and your products.

Did not directly help with dark spots

My nana used this for 6 months and did not see improvements in her dark spots (melasma), however it does have a nice texture and finish, and does leave the skin feeling hydrated. Perhaps this product would be better for other types of hyperpigmentation.
