Spoiler alert – today’s review is a RAVE. If you have hyperpigmentation you want to read on…this products WORKS.
I have been testing skin care products long enough – over ten years – to have developed an intuition about what will work for my skin and what won’t. One of my major skin care issues is hyperpigmentation. It started about 12 years ago when I was pregnant with my daughter and those dark blotches never really went away. I switched to foundations with heavy coverage and have tried one skin care product after another to lighten those spots. I also am not nearly as vigilant as I should be with sun protection, which certainly doesn’t help matters. Anyway, when Skin Authority offered to send Marcia and I each a product to test, along with our own person skin care coach, I immediate went for the products that address hyperpigmentation.
As I checked out the fabulous sounding products that Skin Authority offers, my skin care product radar was attracted to the Brightening Beauty Infusion with Turmeric and Blueberry ($49) and I thought this was the product for me. Luckily, my personal skin coach gave me some different advice. (The skin care coaching service is FREE, by the way – be sure to take advantage of it!) Based on my tenacious brown patches, she recommended I try the Hyper Pigmentation Treatment ($56.50, 1.7 oz / 50 ml) instead. She said that the Hyper Pigmentation Treatment would fade current hyper pigmentation while also preventing more from occurring. At the same time it would also gently resurface, smooth, anti-age and speed up my skin’s cell turnover cycle – kind of like putting my skin on a treadmill to accelerate its metabolism. As with any product that is making a real change to the skin, she advised it would probably take about 60-90 days to see more results, as that is the typical cell turnover cycle. Her professional opinion was that with my particular skin I would see more results more quickly with the Hyper Pigmentation Treatment than with the Brightening Beauty Infusion. Who am I to argue with a skin coach? I said absolutely and started my testing.
60 days later I am one happy camper. The Skin Authority Hyper Pigmentation Treatment is a light gel that is Hydroquinone based. I am so happy to that it works!! My skin has never been more even. Those brown patches are almost completely gone. I am sure that with another month of use they will a distant memory. Here’s what the Hyper Pigmentation Treatment does:
- Exfoliates to gently lift away trapped discoloration
- Works to help inhibit the appearance of future spots and discoloration
- Stimulates skin renewal for softer, smoother texture
- Hydrates skin for softer, smoother texture
- Contains 2% Hydroquinone and should not be used while nursing or pregnant.
I use this gel twice a day, morning and night, applying a thin layer before any treatment serums and moisturizer. I am so happy my skin coach recommended this product and I can’t wait to try other products from this line. If you have issues with hyperpigmentation, the Skin Authority Hyper Pigmentation is your answer!!! – Lisa
