Rated 5 out of 5 by from Immediate brightening I was expecting more of a serum texture and was surprised by how thick it is - I need 3-4 pumps to cover my face. Mostly use it in the morning under makeup because of the sparkles feels weird to use overnight. My sensitive allergic skin loves this product and I will purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product - really does brighten spots I use Optimal Brightening Concentrate for years - loved it. My dermatologist recommended a tinted moisurizer with SPF, so I could cut down to 1 product and save $. HOWEVER, an sun/age spot on my face, that used to be covered by Nars tinted moisturizer when I used the Optimal Brightening, has darkened and needs concealer and full blown moisturizer. Am trying to go back to the Optimal Brightening, but nobody has it in stock. I just which there wasn't so much wasted materials in the packaging, bottle and cap (and occasionally get a bad pump, but just replace with the one from the bottle it is replacing).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does nothing I purchased this product a few months ago, the girl demo-ed the product on made due to the lighting in the shop made me believe it was amazing. Since tried the product at home for several weeks and it does nothing. Don't not purchase this

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it The Bars brightening serum has left my skin feeling great, the small little line around my eyes seem to be fading and has slightly brightened my under eye.. I wasn't expecting miracles so was not disappointed by the result that it doesn't completely get rid of dark circles... make up sits really well on it and it just infuses into the skin.. i can apply concealer straight away don't have to wait to dry.. love it
