We get older, we get spots. We spend too much time in the sun, we get spots. We get pregnant (or use birth control to avoid it), we get melasma. We get acne…well, you can see how the list just goes on and on.
The one thing we can control in every single one of these scenarios is how we handle it.
Of course there are several products on the market that boast skin lightening results but do they really work? Today I’ll be looking at SkinBright, the so-called “#1 skin lightening cream on the market!”
What The Heck is SkinBright and Why Should I Care?
Want to know what SkinBright is? I did too so here’s the lowdown.
First and foremost, Skinbright is a paraben and cruelty-free, natural product. Alpha-arbutin and kojic acid are the two main active ingredients. Both promote natural skin exfoliation and inhibit the production of melanin.
Alpha-arbutin comes from the Bearburry tree and produces similar skin lightening effects to chemical alternatives like hydroquinone. Obviously being natural there are no scary side effects or worry of it being toxic for your skin or the environment.
Kojic acid is a by-product that occurs during Sake (Japanese wine) production. Its purpose is to brighten the skin and is even safe for those of us with sensitive skin issues.
With a whole onslaught of natural ingredients that moisturize, nourish, protect and lighten your skin, SkinBright is a wholesome cream that maximizes results with minimal skin irritation.
The formula penetrates deep down into your skin, right down to your basal layer. Here it eliminates bacteria, promotes Retinol production, tones and smoothes your skin.
All you have to do is pump a quarter-size amount onto your hand and apply to affected areas. Some people see results in as little as two weeks but most often it takes closer to 3 months for significant results.
Give Me the Good News
By all accounts, this product is a fabulous moisturizer. If you scour the internet for reviews, not one of them will have anything negative to say about this aspect.
As far as lightening and brightening go, I think it’s important to manage expectations. If you suffer from severe hyperpigmentation, no at-home product is going to completely fade it out.
Will SkinBright effect it at all? Absolutely! SkinBright works great to a certain extent. Your dark spots will lighten, but not disappear. Using the radiance cream will help even out your overall skin tone but be sure not to use too much of it or you may get an oily result.
Okay, So What’s the Bad News?
People’s biggest hang up with this product is how long it takes to achieve goals. Again, this all depends on how severe your dark spots are. Realistically, you are looking at investing 3-6 months on this product for ideal results. That being said, the results are permanent so why not give it a try?
You also have a 30 day, risk-free guarantee. Even if you finish a bottle, just contact the company and they will refund you your money. Now that’s confidence!
So, how does Skinbright stand up against other products? I wouldn’t call it the #1 product on the market, but I would say it works. Undoing years of skin damage is bound to take some time and it really is a great moisturizer, but you be the judge!
Like a lot of skin lightening creams, there are incentives for buying SkinBright in bulk – 4 options to be a little more specific:
- Single Bottle (1 month supply @ $49)
- Twin Saver Package (2 month supply @ $88)
- Power Saver Package (4 month supply @ $147)
- Super Saver Package (6 month supply @ $196)
To put things into perspective, if you were to get the Super Saver Package, you would only pay $32 per bottle instead of $49.
Although it’s a larger investment, I would recommend finding a friend who is also interested in this specific product and splitting the cost of the biggest package.
