Quality product

Texture is very pleasant, sinks into skin in no time. No visible results yet as I have only used this for a week or so but previously Arbutin has been the only ingredient to actually lighten my dark spots.

No thank you

After finishing the second bottle I think that I have the right to tell that this product didn’t do anything for my skin. I have tiny little sun damage spots on my face but even though I have used this alongside with the tranexamic acid, I didn’t see any differ in the spots nor lightening up on my face. A second thing I really wanna mention is that the second bottle I have used differed in colour of the texture. My first experience was a white milky cream colour (like shown on the site) the second bottle was darker more brownish. I have contacted the aftersales but they told me that it was common that colour could differ. I found this weird. So for me no orders for this one anymore.

Hi Dilek! We're sorry to hear you did not see much results. Sun damage can be a long concern to battle and it may take even 6 months to start seeing results. If you're being very consistent with your routine and using all right ingredients and are still not noticing the results - we would definitely recommend to get in touch with a dermatologist who can assist with a further treatment! 🖤 The Alpha Arbutin serum can oxidise due to the nature of ingredients, however as long as it's within its date of use, this is absolutely safe to use.

It made my breakouts worst

I added the Alpha Arbutin to my skincare routine for acne-prone skin. It had been about a month since I got a couple of pimples that left pretty dark marks on my nose. After 4 days my nose and forehead were irritated, and I began to break out again. I stopped the Arbutin and I haven't broken out since.
