Ratings & Reviews

This works.


I'm surprised this booster hasn't gotten better reviews. I've used it on the backs of my hands for sunspots and it works well...so long as sunscreen is used, too. It's also faded two spots on my left cheek to the extent I no longer need concealer. Consistent sunscreen use is important, though. If you don't use sunscreen, the dark areas return. Using this just once a day, once you get to the level you want, maintains good results. I've had no bad reactions, after three years of use. Just good results.




Essential product


This is a powerhouse product. Not only does this work to lighten discolouration, it helps shrink blemishes and take away redness. A little goes a long way so this tube lasts a long time. My husband even loves this now. It's just meant for spot treatment so if it's used on large areas or more sensitive areas of the face I do find it to be irritating but that's because I'm not using it responsibly.




I love this stuff!


The texture reminds me of a thick shea or coconut butter. The directions say to "pat" it on, not "rub it in" so it doesn't spread very far but it is very effective where it is applied. My skin is brighter, and my blemishes heal faster when I use this product on them. I do find that if I use it on sensitive skin (under the eyes or on a very sore spot), the product burns or irritates. I don't think that is a shortcoming in the product itself, but individuals with a history of very sensitive skin should be aware of this.

Great product


I decided to give it a try since the travel size was on sale, and now I am stocking up while the sale lasts. For this price it's really worth it. I have acne and quite a lot of pigmentation from it. This product really works on those post acne marks. I also use it on active pimples once a day and it reduces redness, I think it even reduces the size of pimples. Even my husband noticed how much it calmed down the redness. I dot tiny amount on post acne marks and active breakouts, and then gently tap it in. Then I wait about 10 mins and apply moisturizer. I don't think it's a necessary step in routine if you don't have noticeable dark spots or post acne marks, but if you do, give this a try.

Miracle product


I don't know why this product is underrated and I don't know why it wasn't suggested when I was looking for a dark spot eraser on the website. For years, I have been using vit c 15% in the mornings, and retinol 1% in the evenings. 4 % bha and 10% aha are also included in my routine. I had been unsuccessful to get rid off two stubborn dark spots from a 2 years ago summer vacation...UNTIL NOW... I have started using this product twice a day and oh boy! My spots are visibly fading out. I wish I had taken before and after pictures!!

I will use this the rest of my life! Amazing


I don't know how I didn't have this earlier! It is amazing. I can feel it working the second I put it on! My crows feet are diminishing and discoloration is getting better each night I use it. I will be buying this constantly and forever. SO INCREDIBLE!

Just try it


This is one of those products that's worth the money for the trial size to see if it will work for you. I'm really surprised by any review less than five stars. This is a superstar, holy grail product. It's a real magic bullet. It diminishes post-acne redness visibly overnight and disappears cystic zits like a mob hit. Ive also had success with brown spots, but I have fair skin and medium-brown spots. It's also really improved my crows feet. I use a tube until it's gone, forget about it a few months, and when I remember to buy it again it's like Christmas for my face. It brightens, plumps, fades redness, shrikes zits and smooths over NIGHT.

This product delivers on its promise. It will break up dark spots of HYPERPIGMENTATION from past blemishes, sun spots, melasma. 3 SUGGESTIONS BELOW: Use everyday, every other week, under sunscreen. See the difference in 1 month. Use it as a spot treatment. Apply toner with fingers, then take 1/2 pea size of this and dot it on problem areas, use slip from toner to spread it around entire face! Can you say "BRIGHTENER"?! Be creative, create your own way of using this wonderfully formulated product!

Healed Picked Acne Overnight!


No, you shouldn't pick at acne. Of course you shouldn't. No one should. But everyone does at some point, and if you're anything like me, you regret it immediately. I was using this for age spots (which it has worked well for, as long as I keep using my sunscreen daily), and accidentally put some on a picked spot. Woke up in the morning and the skin was HEALED. Still a little red and tender, but holy cow! HEALED. Fresh baby skin. I was amazed and thrilled. I'm not saying go crazy picking at your face, but I have begun using this along with PC's wonderful BHA products on any acne that pops up. And it helps the redness and helps heal it quickly. This is now a must have in my skincare routine. I'll take healing acne over diminishing age spots or wrinkles any day. So the fact that it also helps with age spots (can't say yet if it helps with wrinkles) is a huge plus. The only downside is cost. It's expensive! But it works!




works on acne...who knew?


I'm 47 with dry skin that still breaks out occasionally (nose/t-zone) area. I've used the full suite of Paula products for about 10 years and while I occasionally dabble in another line, I'm loyal to the results I've experienced. I received a sample tube of this and tried it out on a couple of little acne scars. No change to the scar tissue itself but over several weeks redness faded. I used a little on a pimple that popped up on my nose overnight and was suprised that it flattened and then disappeared the same day. Since then I've used this as a go to product on little breakouts and it is very effective.
