I've been using this product for about 4 weeks, I try to use it twice a day, but life gets in the way. You can see in the pictures how it has brightened my skin and started removing my dark spots, the picture in the white shirt was the first picture taken 4 weeks ago and the striped shirt taken today. This product is awesome, my skin was dry and I had a awful time putting on makeup because the foundation would cling to all my dry spots, this lotion is so moisturizing, it's great to wear under makeup. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to brighten up their skin, get rid of dark spots or just needs a good moisturizer under their makeup, thank you Ponds!!!
