Zero Results

After a month usage and Finishing the whole bottle there were no results shown, the product didn’t brighten or lightened any dark spots. I have used three products of this brand including Niancinimide, Alpha Arbutin, Vitamic C serum, nothing have worked so far me. Disappointed!

Hello Shazz, we're really sorry to hear this did not work out for you! Everyone's skin is so different and with all new skincare we suggest giving the products 4-6 weeks before expecting to see results. Please let us know if we can help finding better options for you in the future 🖤

Nope

I had ordered a few products after having two of my favorite skincare Youtubers rave about this line. I patch tested on my wrist and waited a little under 24 hours before using any of the products on my face. I used 3 of the 5 products on a Friday night (face wash, face oil, and on of my serums) Saturday morning I did the same while keeping in my normal moisturizer. Saturday evening I added another serum and when to bed. Sunday I woke to a face full of whiteheads ( has 0 before) my face was red, and the texture was ruff to the touch. It was painful and lasted days! I had emailed the company asking for help only to receive a quick email refunding my total purchase. I sent the batch numbers asking for them to look into this as I have used many products and have never had this reaction. It's been about a month and I am still waiting for an email and still healing from the products. I would advise anyone to play it on the safe side with this company. Because the company ignored my questions and was so quick to send a refund I am uncomfortable with this brand and would never purchase again.

Hi!

We’re sorry to hear this! You absolutely did the right thing to patch test, but we’d suggest waiting at least 24-48 hours. We also suggest introducing products one at a time and leaving at least 1-2 days between so you can be clear of when a reaction is triggered. We’re very sorry if this was not made clear.

With your skin concerns and the reaction you experienced, the team advised it may be helpful to get in touch with your doctor or derm. Unfortunately we have not seen a response since our last email to you. One of our advisors will be in touch shortly to pick up where we left off. We apologise for the inconvenience.

Best wishes,
The INKEY List

Hey Sandra! We're so sorry to hear you haven't yet noticed results with Alpha Arbutin. We usually advise 6-12 weeks for results to show, and SPF reapplication is the most important step when dealing with hyperpigmentation or dark spots 🖤

Hey Patricia! We're so sorry to hear this. We usually recommend Alpha Arbutin to help combat hyperpigmentation and dark spots. Take a look at Salicylic Acid Cleanser, Beta Hydroxy Acid and our C-50 Blemish Night Treatment to help with acne. Please do send over a message to our askINKEY team if you would like any further help in finding an alternative product 🖤

Cleared my dark spots

I’m a bug lover of effective and affordable products. This works really well with the Vitamin C and significantly helped with my hyperpigmentation.
