I've used many dark spot removers in the past with little results. But this product is amazing. The only problem is it's too expensive for the little bit you get. If I used it all the time I'd spend over $200 a month. That's ridiculous. If it ever priced more reasonable I'd be their best customer!!!!

I am a 36 year young African-American women and I have just received my City Cosmetics Illuminating Dark Spot Corrector and Anti-Aging Moisturizer. I have dark acne scars that came out of nowhere after moving to a different climate my skin reacted and I was getting breakouts like I was a teenager!!! I purchased the Anti-Aging moisturizer because it's never too early to start preventing wrinkles; even though I don't have any and I also liked what the cream can possibly do for my skin. I am looking forward to going out without any makeup just to go run errands and I am excited about seeing results are reading the reviews. Tonight was my first time using the products and I will definitely keep you posted and my results! EXCITED




I have to admit that I am impressed and it's only been a few days... Almost cleared a spot that wouldn't go away I even tried IPA laser which actually had made it worse. I probably overdid it applying this serum 3x a day but so far so good. I had a huge spot and it's almost gone and I am sure that within this week to next week, I will see a huge difference. So glad I found this company .. Just ordered the lip plumping. Hopefully that will work also to my advantage

I have used so many spot corrector but nothing is working right now, for so many previews, I feel interested to get one for myself, But , I have a question , I am an Asian woman in my 50's, do you think it works for my brown skin? and it is pricey too, can you just lower the price , or give us a free trial bottle for a start if I like it I will order more and are you still in promotion price for 50 % off , I saw it yesterdy and email your company, but I don't get an answer yet. Can we buy it in store and what store around us ?




I just started using the dark spot serum and can wait to start see the results in the dark spot i use two time days for five days already.




Everything I've tried in the past was useless and I've tried a number of products. I gave up. Then, I was introduced to City Lights begrudgingly, I must admit as I was tired of paying for products that had false advertising. City Lights has been amazing, really. We are on our second bottle of the dark spot remover. I've experienced limited reduction of age spots (60 yrs-old) on my face and hands. Some of these spots are deep and will likely take a while to disappear, but they are continuing to fade. Using the second bottle with great hope, now. However, the success story is my husband. He had a 4+ inch long dark brown scar on his leg from an injury over 2 years ago. After the first bottle it was lightened considerably. I couldn't believe it. Now, after using a portion of the 2nd bottle for 2 weeks it's barely visible at all. I had to look hard for the mark yesterday when he showed me his leg. I'm properly jealous. Hope my age spots will be completely gone before long, too. I also purchased the creme Illuminator for all over the face. It seems to add a lift to the overall reduction process in smoothing the color for this old face.




Im an 23 african american with really light skinned that have just started to experience break outs. I purchased only one bottle of this cream and it worked really good people noticed the dark spots on my forehead fade drastically, although it didn't fade the dark spots on my cheek that much I think I have to use it for a while longer though, Its just so expensive and the bottle is so small. Dont be stingy with the product city cosmetics. Im about to order another bottle because it's been a little over a month since I ran out. And Also it's really good on blemishes too and its not heavy and greasy so thats very rare to find a good dark spot corrector that clears blemishes overnight its worth, but I think it is definitely overpriced hope I was of help.




I have been using the product twice a day for two weeks. I put it on then wait a few minutes before applying moisturizer. It absorbs well, and leaves skin smoother. It has definitely lightened dark spots and evened the tone of my complexion from sun damage. It has also refined fine lines. I am in my 60s, and I feel better about my skin now. I rarely wear makeup, but this improvement has motivated me to do so more often, and dress better too.




I just started using the dark spot serum and I'm already seeing amazing results!! I have horrible dark spots on my face due to long term sun exposure. The spots are so bad-I look older then my actual 37 yrs! I love love love this serum/just wish it was bigger and less expensive!! ;)




How long did it take for you to see results? Does this work on brown skin?

I've tried many dark spot correctors and nothing has faded my spots as much as this one has. I'm so happy to have found it and have even bought some for my mom and sisters! I just wish it was bigger!
