MY REVIEW:

HOW TO USE:

  1. As the website suggests: For pigmented spots: apply on spots. For tanned or uneven skin: apply every third day for three weeks, every other day for two weeks and every day after that. As a mask: apply a thick layer on the skin. Leave on for 5 minutes and then wipe off.
  2. I Prefer: cleanse the skin & apply an even layer of the product. Leave overnight. Follow with sunscreen next morning. Repeat every alternate day. (I have acne prone, oily skin.)
