combination PIHAcneEczema+ 4
best skin-brightening treatment i ever tried + malassezia safe !

i used to use the ordinary's niacinamide serum, then later the alpha arbutin serum, but once i discovered i had fungal acne, i switched to this. it sometimes looks like it improves and even calms my acne scarring overnight. over time it's helped immensely and i especially love to apply this after i use a dermaroller. holy grail treatment for me!

I love this

I've already noticed that my hyperpigmentation and skin tone has improved greatly! I love that my skin feels so soft and smooth after using this. It does take a while to absorb into the skin, but I am really happy to have finally found a product that is effective at such a low price.
