    The very first , clear formulation was great and worked very well . The new formulation does not work as well at lightening the dark marks , and the consistency is sticky and doesn’t sit well with other products. I do hope skin functional could bring back the old alpha arbutin as an option for those who preferred it .

    I used to love the dark mark management serum before the reformulation. I had amazing results with the old version. The new version causes some sensitivity, redness and itching everytime I use it. Sad that I can’t use it anymore and will have to find another alpha arbutin serum. Hope you guys will consider bringing the old version back as an option for sensitive skin.
