I\’ve been using this product for around 1 month. I haven\’t seen any actual brightening to my skin but, my skin texture has vastly improved. I have combo skin and this doesn\’t make me oily or break me out. If anything my oily T zone has also improved. There is a very light scent but, once applied you can\’t notice it. My skin feels bouncy and hydrated. I received the product for free from SK-II for my honest opinion.
