Here’s Exactly How Our Ingredients Treats Dark Spots
Vitamin C removes dark spots by restricting the enzyme responsible for the production of melanin.
It helps stimulate collagen production to help boost the skin's volume, whilst also breaking down excess melanin to minimize the appearance of dark spots and pigmentation.
Glycolic acid removes dark spots by suppressing the production of melanin.
Kojic acid removes dark spots by blocking tyrosine from forming, which then prevents melanin production.

To preface, I have Seborrheic Dermatitis (a form of eczema). It makes my skin a lovely peeling, disgusting mess around my nose, mouth, chin, and a spot between my eyebrows. It's worse in cold, dry winter air (which is half the year in eastern Oregon). It's also worse during stress. So basically about 90% of the time I've been feeling like a snake shedding its skin on my face and it see a lot of discoloration on my face. It is embarrassing and hurts. So I tried a million gentle skin cleansers, creams, oils, everything. Went to the Dr who gave me an anti-fungal cream and told me to mix it half and half with hydrocortisone. Nothing worked. If I scrubbed hard enough with a rag to get the peelings off, it was practically raw.
Fast forward about a month ago we went to Vegas. The hotel had three, yes three, of the little stores with barely English-speaking people pushing under eye cream bags and wrinkle cream. Somehow my husband was dumb enough to get roped into talking to one of the gals, who was then close enough to grab my arm and propel me into a chair. After putting on the dark spot corrector cream, I said what I want is a way to get rid of this nasty peeling mess. She says she has just the thing. Having been to many "parties like melaleuca and Mary Kay" I was like no way are you putting anything on me, I'll peel even worse! So she put a little gel formula on the back of my hand and gently massaged it in. Talk about a DISGUSTING mess, rolled up pieces of gunk all over my hand, sort of like when you rub rubber cement, but a couple of hundred peeling deals. Did I mention it was gross-looking? Anyway, she said it's taking off the dead skin cells. I thought ya right, it didn't feel like sand scraping like every other exfoliator I've tried. So I figured it had to just be the gel globbing up and "looking" like dead skin. But when she washed it off my hand was nice and smooth. At that point, I was irritated enough with this 20 yr old telling me how old I looked (eye wrinkles) and just wanted to get out of there. BUT I was intrigued with the (slight) possibility this could help my face without it hurting. So I haggled, a jar for $25 and a bunch of other "gifts". That's a crazy amount of money to me, but nothing when you look at the amount of stuff I tried the lady a few years ago that didn't work and was just thrown away, 100's of dollars worth. So I was ok with this bargain.
Also, I need to note, there were two types of shops, Vine Vera and Vivo Per Lei, which seemed identical except in packaging colors. It was the Vine Vera I'd bought.
Anyway, I went back to the hotel room and tried it on my face. It did the same as on my hand, in the areas of peeling skin, huge rolls of gunk came up, the cheeks and forehead nothing. It didn't hurt (you rub this in GENTLY). Wash it off with a washrag. ALL my peeled skin was gone! For a couple more days it was STILL gone! This has NEVER EVER happened in the 4 yrs I've been fighting this dermatitis. I think the directions say to use it once a week as basically a micro-dermabrasion. When my peels came back in a couple of days I tried it again.
Again success and they stay away for a couple of days!!! I'm gentle and it doesn't hurt. One time I rubbed aggressively on my chin, it hurt some, and got some red bumps that stayed a while. Lesson learned, rub gently. Also DON'T use too much, less work, too much is too think and it does nothing. Probably a large pea size is enough for my chin, nose, and between the eyebrows, possibly a Lima bean size for my whole face is the right amount.
So this Dark Spot Corrector worked, but how would I get more? I'm not going back to Vegas for a while, so I looked online for a solution. Of course, you can buy it on this website for an exorbitant amount. I was perfectly willing to pay the $25 again, I mean this stuff WORKS, but like I said, not near Vegas.
Guess what, the same product works like a champ! It's the BEST thing I've found to combat this severe dermatitis. It doesn't take away the red from cold air, but I don't have that if I'm not out in the cold wind. I can go WITHOUT makeup if I want when the red flare-up isn't there.
I am so surprised at how much I like this moisturizer. I worked in derm for way too many years, but this was several years ago now. I used this product when it was endorsed by my friend, along with tons of other OTC and high-end products. I was running out of my Tatcha AND my Josie Maran Milk serum at the same time and didn't want to spend the money to repurchase. I had tried Neutrogena Hydro Boost, which wasn't bad - ok for daytime use during the summer, I just wanted something more. So I decided to try this nightly color corrector. There's no scent - good or bad - it's just there. Great texture. It gets absorbed but you still know you put it on, but not obnoxiously there. Does that make sense? I hate the moisturizers that you put on, then you have no idea where they went five minutes later. Why bother?
Anyway... I've had no reaction, no irritation and I've been doing all sorts of harsh stuff in an attempt to rid myself of some melasma. Differin, Exuviance Peels, Cerave Resurfacing Serum, and this moisturizer keeps my skin in check! I'm not sure I'll go back to the high-end stuff.
Side note: if you're using this in the am under makeup you still need sunscreen and you'll need to allow some time between applying this and makeup.
***UPDATE October 2022*** I have now purchased this five times. I still use this regularly and love it.
I am absolutely in love with this product I can see a difference in just 2 days my skin looks moist and glows even with the few blemishes I have my skin still looks dewy I take pictures everyday to log the journey. I am amazed thank you curology !
I bought this product a little while ago and make sure to always wear it once every two weeks after taking a shower and it honestly has made a difference on my skin. It has taken some blackhead or anything bumpy on the surface of my skin, & dead skin off. It does not leave my skin irritated, on the contrary, it leaves it smooth and is quite easy to peel off.
I have acne-prone skin and I didn't break out while using this product so I recommend it if you are acne-prone skin and are scared of using this product due to breakouts because it didn't cause me to break out.
The package for it looks small, but you do get a lot of product and a little bit of the mask goes a long way on your face. Its application of it is great. Not messy at all, smooths on your face very easily.
I have combination skin, an extremely greasy nose, very dry cheeks, and acne scars all over my face. I have noticed a huge difference in my skin. I will say it does help with my oiliness and those acne scars are fading, Great stuff. At 35 years old I love it and will continue to use it.
I originally bought my wife a smaller size of this product. She loved it so much she asked me to post her review-- "This product has made my skin look so fresh! I use it every day and I can say that the product is working because my skin is now healthier-looking and more toned. I never had a huge amount of acne but my Dark spots have almost disappeared altogether.
I love that it has vitamins C and Hydroquinone. It's the best thing for your skin. Maybe that's why this cream is different from other vitamin C creams I’ve tried. It feels rich and luxurious when you apply it but it also absorbs fast so it doesn't take a lot of time putting it on, whether in the morning before I go to work or at night before I go to bed. I have very sensitive skin and this causes me no problems at all but makes my skin feel and look brighter and tighter and my face feels so much smoother. Plus, since it’s made with the correct ingredients that my skin really needs, I feel safer using it." Now I bought her the larger size and she still gets the same results from the product but at a much lower cost. The dark sunspots on her face have gone away and her color looks the same all over her face now!
I am very pleased and would recommend this to my friends and family!
I bought this previously for the occasional pimple but then started using this product as a face moisturizer in October of last year and didn't see another pimple. However, I left for a long road trip at the start of the year and had run out of moisturizer so I switched to Cera-Ve. Worst choice ever! I think it's because it has sunscreen on it. Within a couple of weeks of switching, I ended up with 5-6 pimples on my face at once--I think the most I've ever had.
RED AND PEELING
Luckily I brought this spot treatment with me. Using it one or two days in a row worked on some, but there was a persistent one above my left eye that I applied a few times a day for a day or two. I think I wasn't putting enough product on in a single application, you have to coat the area. Because I wasn't using enough each time, I had to prolong my use of this and it did cause my skin to turn red, but the pimple went away. Two days later, with no moisturizer (and I tend to have dryer skin), the skin painlessly peeled/flaked off that small spot and there was no sign of acne there anymore.
A similar thing happened under my right eye where I had a persistent pimple. I applied the product a bit more heavily there and it disappeared within a day or two. There was a bit of redness left behind, and I have somewhat sensitive skin, but the skin just flaked off that little spot too and there is no evidence I had a pimple at all! I still have a few on my chin because I stopped using the product only because the redness it was causing scared me. However, now that I've seen that the peeling is temporary and painless, I will use this again today to get rid of those last few pimples. Great news because I have plans this weekend!
Because this product works, I ordered the three-part Advantage system with cleaner, treatment, and moisturizer and it should be in today. Overall, very happy with it, but if you have a stubborn pimple, I would make sure you're fully coating it when you apply this and if you have very sensitive skin, maybe don't apply it two or three times in a row as I did. With that said, my skin did clear within 48 hours and my pimples otherwise may have lingered for a week or more, so what more could you want?
By the way, I didn't notice a fragrance...
Have been using it for just over a week and I feel my skin is brighter and more even toned. I have a large dark spot on my forehead, and it seems to have faded a little bit, so we'll see after I use it longer. Feels good and hasn't any issues with my sensitive skin.
In my opinion, it is even more efficient than the Ambi dark spot remover. Fast results! Saw significant progress even after the first night, even on my darkest freckles.
When I woke up that morning, 7 hours later, I could tell they had lightened. The cream didn't irritate my skin, but be careful when applying on dark spots close to the eyes, as it could cause a bit of stinging when applied on dark spots near the eye lids and sockets. Perhaps best to use right before sleep.
Bought another as a birthday gift for my mother in law because it's so great. Worked on my freckles and some acne scars I had.
I have tried so many different products to get rid of the dark spots on my face (sunspots and acne scars) and nothing has worked…or I gave up before it worked because I wasn’t seeing any results. With this product, I thought I was imagining it because I was seeing results within days. I’ve only been using it a short time but I’m hopeful I’ll get the results I’m looking for.
Results aside, the cream is lightweight, not at all greasy or sticky, has no strong smell, and absorbs quickly. I have sensitive skin and haven’t had any issues with it. I use it at night, but I’m sure it could even be worn under makeup
I did notice a slight fading of my sunspots! I wouldn't say it has been a drastic difference, but it has been noticeable and I feel like I don't have to put as much foundation to cover up those spots anymore.
I've been using it for the past week and a half and will continue to use it in hopes that it will fade more! My skin hasn't reacted to the product and the lotion is easy to apply. I am overall happy with how it has worked on my skin so far!.
My skin tends to get pretty dry, I have tried other products on this site that are great, so I decided to give this a go.
I was pleasantly surprised with how this soaked into my skin, rather than just sitting on the surface like other moisturizers I’ve tried. I put it on after washing my face before bed, when I woke up my skin was very soft and moisturized.
First of all, it does not cause any side reaction on my face (I did do a patch test before applying it to the whole face though). I guess 10% is on the lower end. I use my fingertips to massage it on my face. It absorbs fast and also moisturizes my skin.
I also noticed my skin tone became a bit more even, not very much though. My skin is still yellow, which becomes brighter and firmer. The T zone is less oily.
I’m fair-skinned ginger, so I have VERY sensitive skin. This didn’t irritate me at all, it feels very nice when you smooth it in. I’m getting more when this is gone.
I suffer with breakouts usually once a month and this helps so much! It dries the pimple out. You can see the pimples going down the next day. I am so happy with this product!
