PRICE: £29.99

MY STORY: I started using this at the same time as hydraluron to help fade my acne scars. The combination worked beautifully, I used pepta bright first morning and night as my brightening serum followed by hydraluron & then a moisturiser.

Pepta bright makes big claims: it should even skin tone, reduce & lighten pigmentation. Prevent, treat & diminish dark spots. Restore luminosity & radiance, prevent photoaging, stimulate cell turnover & maintain skin’s hydration.

This product has a light creamy, quickly absorbed formula. As far as photo ageing & skin turnover goes it’s hard to say. For the purpose of fading old acne scarring it & evenness of skin tone it certainly helps. It’s difficult for me to separate the effects from hydraluron as I’ve always used both together & I’m sure just the boost of hydration from layering the 2 improved the luminosity & general appearance of my skin.

It’s effects would be most noticeable on more mature/pigmented/sun damaged skin types, if you’re in your early 20s and have the odd acne scar it’ll still help but there are other cheaper options you may want to try first. 

Sunscreen is a must when you use this as there is no use trying to fade sun related ageing if you’re still exposing your face to it!

AIM: helps reduce the appearance of dark spots and areas while promoting overall skin radiance, leaving a more even toned, luminous complexion. 

DIRECTIONS: use AM and PM as a serum, apply sunscreen after for full effect. 

ACTIVE INGREDIENTS: 

Chromabright +ODA White: skin brightening ingredients with a new mechanism of action inhibiting the metabolic pathway of melanin synthesis from the nucleus of the melanocyte.

Phenylethyl resorcinol: a synthetic antioxidant.

PROS: effectively a skin lightener but without harmful bleaching ingredients 

CONS: the evidence behind melanin inhibition and phenylethyl resorcinol is limited.

Rating: 4/5
