    I added this serum to my skin care routine together with the blemish corrector and it changed my whole life.. 3 weeks in and my dark marks/ blemishes have faded. Skin functional is doing the things here! I get why this serum is a fav.

    I dont even have words… This combined with Niacinamide… Please just buy it!!! This product does exactly what it says… Not scented and light weight… It fades the stubborn marks!!! Its the top of its class!

    I’ve been suffering with stubborn post inflammatory hyperpigmentation on my cheeks for YEARS due to acne and this product cleared 80% of it in the 2 months I’ve been using it. I’ve noticed an improvement in the overall complexion of my skin as well since introducing this product into my routine. It sits beautifully on the skin and doesn’t feel oily or heavy at all. For reference, I have very oily/ acne prone/combination skin and this doesn’t break me out. My skin is also sensitive and this product doesn’t irritate my skin. Will definitely be repurchasing this.
