It has never made me paler. It has lightened acne scars, other scars, and evened out my skin tone. I love this product! I think if you're looking for something to lighten your skin color, this isn't the product for you.
It should not affect your overall skin tone but targets the areas that have higher pigmentation due to melanin production. However, you should be using this product with a high SPF as you do not want to make your skin spots worse. When ever using a brightening or exfolators, you need to protect the skin that is now become more sensitive to the suns rays. So technically with a higher SPF you might become paler from not getting any color. If that makes any sense!

No -- just brighter and more even-toned.

I'm have very fair skin to begin with so I didn't notice if it made me "paler."
However, it did even out my skin tone and got rid of some brown spots and freckels on my face. It's not really for skin whitening but your skin will look brighter and have more of an even balanced tone, therefore giving the appearance of "whiting" of the skin. Personally I really like the Rosewater Balancing Mist used in conjunction with the Purely White Skin Brightening Essence. I will purchase them both again when I run out. Also try not to get to much sun, it is soooo damaging, especially to the face. It dehydrates, which may cause facial lines, and unwanted pigmentation.

This product, although says purely white, is not meant as a whitener, but a brightener. It targets sun damage at a cellular level and corrects discolorations on the surface as well as underneath to prevent future sun spots/discoloration.
It may seem lighter only because it is evening out skintone, but it is not meant to whiten. If you would like a whitening product, this can help/add to the process since it helps darker sun damage from appearing/ ruining your complexion.

The Jurlique Purely White Skin Brightening Essence doesn't make your skin more pale. Instead it's designed to naturally even skintone and deliver healthy-looking radiance. We hope this answers your question!
