    Absolutely LOVE this product. I have very sensitive, easily irritated skin and have struggled with pimples for 20 years that left many spots with hyperpigmentation. I've been self conscious about it all my life and used to wear full coverage cream foundation to even my skin tone. Also, my medium toned, naturally tanned skin made many dark spot correctors difficult to use: most contain hydroquinone that is time consuming to apply, lightens the skin around dark spots, and smelled horrible. I don't want to fade my whole face, I want to fade my irritating dark spots!

    This product has revolutionized my skin! I've been using it about 6 weeks and for the first time last weekend I actually felt comfortable being in public without makeup. The lightweight lotion miraculously targets the dark spots without fading my whole face. I applied a thin layer morning and night and started noticing a gradual lightening of the dark spots in around 2 weeks. I'm so impressed how much my skin as changed. The texture has greatly improved: my face is softer and smoother; fine lines are much less noticeable.

    I chose Physicians Formula because Clinique skin care always breaks me out and their dark spot corrector costs more than twice as much. I'm also very sensitive to scents. This isn't fragrance-free-- there is a slight botanical smell, but I got used to it quickly and it's not too bothersome.

    Biggest benefit: I wear less foundation! Now I use a bit of concealer on my remaining dark spots and a thin layer of liquid foundation topped with a light dusting of mineral powder. Imagine: a skin care product that is saving me money on makeup! Who would have thought?

    I used to feel uncomfortable when people (especially men) were close to my face. Not any more. Now I can look them in the eye and know that my skin looks better than it ever has before.

    A friend I hadn't seen in a few months told me twice how amazing my skin looks! Thank you, thank you, thank you for this product. It's given me a confidence I never thought I'd have!

    I only had the product 4 days when the pump it is in broke. I am continuing the use of the product. However I know that the product is no longer at it's peak since it is not free from the air around it. I am disappointed that a product that cost over $15 wasn't durable enough to last through sitting on a counter and being used twice daily.

          I was previously using another product, ran out, and purchased Physician's Formula based on a magazine article beauty products recommendation: "Try this." I've been using it for about three weeks and am losing ground. I will be going back to my previous product; though it costs more, the results are so much better.

          This is a good night lotion - it actually works, for one and two, it's reasonably priced. That said, it has an odd color (purply greige) and smell. Not overly offensive but noticable. But it works - so, give and take, right?

                Hi Physicians Formula;
                No product that contains soy, wheat, oat, eggs, and other common allergens can be termed "hypoallergenic". Please do not put your customers at risk.

                      I used this twice a day (along with sunscreen) for over a month and it was ineffective in lightening spots. The pump works great, and this product is a good moisturizer. It also has a strong smell.

                          I love the smell, it has a slight pheromone smell I think, if you have ever had testosterone, you might notice similarities, the color I believe is to correct, though it blends in so I don't notice. It's a slight grey/purple. I never was concerned with the color or smell, I love the product and my spots fade much better than with any product I've tried to date, including the BB creams and spot corrector. It's a 1/2 combo w/ my PF Deep Wrinkle Corrector ( i have no deep wrinkles but extremely dry skin) I love the way I look in the morning, with use, with out use my skin is back to extreme dry and spotty / blotchy / ruddy/ rosacia..
