I tried it for about 3 weeks and my face developed a rash with severe itching. I then looked up the side effects of Kojic Acid which is the main ingredient. Sensitive Skin: This happens to be the most well known side effect of kojic acid. Basically, there has been research which suggests that if kojic acid is used repeatedly for extended periods of time, the user’s skin may develop increased sensitivity which some say might become permanent to some degree. Technically known as dermatitis, this side effect be characterized by increased itchiness, red rash, irritation, etc (similar to poison ivy).The smell of the serum is also terrible.
So far, I like it! Update on 3/22/11

I read all the reviews about it smelling badly. It's not even that bad! It has a slight smell that disappears shortly after applying it. This is so much safer than hydroquinone.....and that has a terrible smell! As for results, I don't know yet. It says it can take up to 8 weeks to see results and I've been using for three. Oh, I don't know why they call it a serum.....it's a cream base. Update on 3/22/11 I have seen no change at all after using this for a long time. If you look at the bottle, kojic acid is way down the ingredients list........ I ended up going to Amazon.com and purchasing a brightening gel that list it as the second ingredient and is natural as well. Don't waste your money!
really wanted to like this

Good light texture, absorbs quickly. Use at night. Flavor is not very pleasant, but quickly disappears.

Been using it for about a month to help with my sun spots. They say I will see a difference in about three months. I am hopeful. It really does not smell bad. I&#39;ll post again in three months.
