Not sure yet

I’ ve been using it for almost 4 weeks and haven’t noticed any difference in two particular pigment spots. IHowever it gives an overall brightness to the skin.I use it at night combined with retinol every other night. I will keep using it as it probably needs more time to show results

Serum brown color

This is my first time buying the product from the InkeyList and it’s a brown color. I’ve bought The Ordinary version in the past and I was happy with it but the last time it came brown too. That’s the reason I changed to the Inkey List but I ended up with the same issue. I wonder if this is a supply chain issue.

The INKEY List CA

Hey Blanca.
Due to the nature of the ingredient the Alpha Arbutin can oxidise slightly causing this change in colour, However this is normal and safe to use. If you'd like please get in touch with us with the product batch code and we'd love to look into this further for you 🖤

OK

I like the texture and my skin is brighter but I do not like the smell of this product. The scent goes away once it is absorbed.

It works

Watched a YouTube video of two dermatologist talking about pigmentation as I had a few marks randomly appear on my neck and it was embarrassing. It was on for 3 months! After two weeks using this and the Tran exam if acid treatment from inkylist I have noticed that it is clearing up.

No more waiting for a year to see a dermatologist
