Getting even with Skin Authority Hyper Pigmentation Treatment

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

    Lisa, thank you so much for this review. I also have hyper pigmentation and have tried so many different products. The last two were Paula’s choice age spot repair and Murad age spot repair. Not sure if that is the correct name but definitely the brands. Murad is helping a little but not that much. I definitely will check this product out.

    I’m so glad it worked for you! That’s such a great feeling! Unfortunately, I think I’ve gotten as much help as I’m going to for my dark spots from topical skincare and I need laser next. I’ve tried 2% hydroquinone and it didn’t do much. Other products mostly got rid of my cute freckles but I’m still left with the larger dark spots from years of sun damage.

    I don’t have hyperpigmentation but I love the idea of a personal skin care coach – I’m going to have to check out this brand. I’m so happy that this was a win for you!

  4. CosmetopiaDigest | 31st Oct 16

    I could do with this for my horrendous acne marks!

  5. Carleen | 31st Oct 16

    I like the combo of citric acid and glycolic acid in this.

  6. Chelsea | 31st Oct 16

    I don’t have much in terms of hyperpigmentation, but definitely need to keep this in mind to recommend to readers who ask! Sounds great!

  7. Phyrra | 31st Oct 16

    This sounds great for evening out skintone.

  8. Cindy (Prime Beauty) | 31st Oct 16

    OMG that’s fabulous! I have brown spots from sun damage and they are SO hard to get rid of!

  9. Aleya Bamdad | 31st Oct 16

    I’ve heard that turmeric is a great skin brightener so I’m really happy to see that this product contains it and it’s working for you.

  10. Lola Seicento | 31st Oct 16

    I have some sun damage, and will definitely take note of this product! Thanks for the review!

    Good to know it worked for you. If you want to remove sun spots permanently, IPL therapy can help

  12. Erika | 1st Nov 16

    Great review. I haven’t tried Hydroquinone in my skin care but it may be worth a look.

  13. Anastasia | 1st Nov 16

    I love products that address hyperpigmentation, and Hydroquinone is one of those ingredients that really work.

  14. Julie | 1st Nov 16

    I need something like this, my skin leaves behind marks after every single breakout. It’s so frustrating!

  15. Bailey | 1st Nov 16

    This sounds really impressive. My mom is always looking for something to deal with hyperpigmentation, so I’ll have to share this with her.

  16. Lisa Heath | 2nd Nov 16

    I don’t have hyperpigmentation, but my coworker does and occasionally asks if I know of anything to help her – so I’ll have her take a look at this!

  17. Kristina | The Feminine Files | 2nd Nov 16

    Awesome review! I have stubborn hyperpigmentation spots under my eyes, and I think I’m going to need something like this to get rid of them.

    Wow, great results! Sounds like you’re super happy with this discovery. Awesome.
