Yes it does. Sadly I didn't realize until it faded the halfmoon freckles around my left eye. Haha... My FAVORITE beauty mark. Needless to say, I try to avoid those freckles with it now! It hasn't completely faded my sunspots, but atleast to the point that after sheer makeup I don't notice them. I started competetively swimming at age 4, so even though I am only 27, I had many sun spots. Although, the fact that mine are young, and not everyone has the same complexion, i am not sure I can gaurantee results. I would still give it a shot though. The smell is divine, and the feel is very light. Especially since I can use less mosturizer with it. I love cleaning my face simply because I get to put this product on.

I also use it on a large scare on my leg from a cycling accident. I scare very dark and have tried everything on it, this has helped a lot. I feel a lot prettier in short dresses knowing not everyone is staring at it.

I believe it does fade sun-damaged, age spots to a certain degree. I had to use it for about 6-7 wks. before I saw results. You should use it twice a day religiously and not just once in a while. I have been using the serum for about 4 months now and my age spots are not completely gone but I do see dramatic results!! Would buy again!

Yes, VINOPERFECT really does work. The independent clinical trials are amazing at improving the appearance of sun damage and sun spots. You need to give it at least six weeks in some cases to notice a difference.

I still don't believe it myself, but I saw results after ONE application. of course, everyone's skin responds to products in a different way, and you may not experience this. if you don't, all I can say is stick with it: this is an amazing product that so far has TOTALLY lived up to its claims, which doesn't happen too often, at least in my experience with treatment. at the very least, your skin will become smoother, and will be nicely moisturized. I really hope it fades your sun damage. I know how frustrating it can be to try to treat it. I've been using Retin-A, which works, but can be quite drying. this serum is working! and seems to augment the Retin-A nicely by repairing the peeling skin. good luck!

What alternative could I use on sensitive skin?
I am 61 yrs old., with very sensitive oriental skin, which scars and then spots easily. I have scar and sun spots. I wanted to try this product but in the past I tried the Caudalie Energizing Moisturizer which also has grape juice extract and I had a minor reacion. Is there anyone out there with sensitive skin that has used this product? Or do you know of any other lighteing product at Sephora for sensitive skin? Thanks

VINOPERFECT sounds like it would be a wonderful addition to your skin care regime. It is formulated naturally without the harsh acids and chemicals that most anti dark spot treatments have. It is formulated for the most sensitive skin. I would suggest asking for a sample and testing it out before purchasing it since you have had reaction with our Energizing Moisturizer. I also suggest trying our CLEANSING WATER as well which is ideal for the most sensitive skin types.

The reaction you had from the Energizing Cream may have been from Vitamin C. Both the Energizing Cream and Energizing Fluid contain Vitamin C which can cause a reaction in some folks. The Vinoperfect serum does not contain Vitamin C. I suggest giving it a try. My skin can be a little sensitive to some ingredients and I do fine with the Vinoperfect.

unfortunately, any product that is going to lighten sun damage usually contains active or skin-altering ingredients. i.e. alpha- or beta-hydroxy acids, salicylic acid, or hydroquinone. I have fair, sensitive skin and I had a very bad reaction to a product with hydroquinone; my skin, wherever I had applied it, turned a coffee grounds brown color. not everyone has this reaction, but I did. I had to get Retin-A to reverse this damage.
you could begin to exfoliate the darker areas by increasing cell turnover- which decreases with age, leaving us with dullness and hyperpigmentation- by using mildly exfoliating products. I like philosophy's Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash. it is quite gentle. routine exfoliation will remove the top layers of dead cells on the epidermis, including the darkened cells, slowly- but it will help. your skin overall will benefit from gentle exfoliation by becoming more smooth. you will need to find out how often your skin will tolerate exfoliation, even though this product is not an aggressive exfoliator. you could also try an alpha-hydroxy acid product- get a sample of Peter Thomas Roth's Glycolic Acid 10% Moisturizer- and apply it in the evening to the darkened areas. [first test product for a reaction; it is a moisturizer with a pretty high concentration of AHA which is good for exfoliation, but could cause some minor redness and peeling. [I've noticed that a bit of redness and peeling means that my darker areas are being exfoliated.] the product will increase cell turnover, and remove dead cells. USE THE EXFOLIATING CLEANSER THE AHA PRODUCT[S] ON ALTERNATE DAYS at first. and of course always wear a full-spectrum sunscreen and re-apply throughout the day; this is a must to prevent further darkening of the pigmented areas, and will prevent further damage. I've also had good luck with Boscia's Antioxidant C Treatment. it is not too active and seemed to brighten my complexion but it was quite moisturizing while light in texture. perhaps try Juice Beauty's Green Apple Peel for Sensitive Skin. alternate any exfoliating mask like this with your physical exfoliating cleanser.
get samples of any product first- Sephora graciously provides them [another reason to love Sephora, as if we needed one!] I test any new product on the skin under my chin. this way if I have a reaction it's not in a visible place. exfoliation WILL decrease the darkness of your pigmentation; combined with sunscreen, it will gradually do the job. and do remember to moisturize. I love Peter Thomas Roth's Mega-Rich Intensive Creme. I HIGHLY recommend this cream for anyone over 40. it contains Argerline which really does relax wrinkles. [it worked for me!] it is very moisturizing and light at the same time, and soothing to my sensitive skin. if your skin is moisturized it will improve the over-all skin tone. it is a bit pricey but my jar lasted months. it is a really great cream; I urge you to get a sample.
I hope this helped. good luck!

Hi,

This is actually why I purchsed the product. It improved my overall skintone and boosted my radiance, but as far as my acne scars are concerned ( which are purely surface not indentions), it only slightly improved these. I have been using it for going on a month now... For the high price tag, and the unimpressive results in the lightening of acne scars, I wouldn't suggest purchasing.

Question
absorption
I got this in a set and I was really liking it because I have oily skin and it's not thick or heavy. My problem now is that after a few weeks of use (after cleansing and toning) it doesn't seem to absorb into my skin. Even if I wait 5-10 minutes it doesn't seem to dry and when i try to apply my BB Cream it seems to ball up and peel off, if that description makes sense. Any suggestions on how to prevent this? If not, are there any other serums for sunspots that might absorb into my oily skin better?

Don`t put too much on. And It does seem make your face glowy, especially when you have oily skin like me. Thats why i only use it at night, and its the ONLY thing i put on my skin at night, I don`t follow up with a moisturizer. Therefore, I put sufficient amount onto my skin, although it seems oily at first, it will eventually be absorbed into your skin while you sleep and you will wake up with a matte finished face.

I'm not sure why it would stop working for you but another product to try is by Origins and is sold at Sephora. It's called Mega-Bright. It's part of Dr. Weil's line. Skin tone correcting serum. Give that a try. It's less expensive but works a bit slower in my opinion.

I love this serum as well, as I also have oily skin. When I apply this, I first wash my face really well. Pat dry well. Then I take the serum--about a pea size amount and rub it between my fingers. Then I PAT THE SERUM ON MY FACE using my fingers. Let the serum absorb into your skin for 3 to 4 minutes before you apply any other products. I have tried BB creams, and am not a fan. Something I do love is the "skin transformation," --it functions as a BB cream--but its so light! *Key is to let EACH product absorb into your skin before applying any additional product.

This serum is an excellent natural alternative to fade acne scarring. I have tan/medium skin tone and had pretty bad scarring. I have been using this serum for almost 2 months now, twice a day, and my scars are lightening up and my complexion looks brighter and more even. I use a pea size amount, then PAT the serum all over my face and let it completely sink in before applying your moisturizer. *make sure your moisturize has SPF to prevent more spots.

Yes! I had A LOT of acne pigmentation all over my cheeks and this definitely faded them by more than half in three weeks. I used it morning and night, and was generous in the amount that I applied (I used two drops on each cheek, and two on my forehead for 6 drops total). So I used 12 drops a day, which is I guess a lot, and it really really helped. I will be repurchasing! If you can afford it I would really recommend that you get it.

If you have a very oily skin then skip the moisturizer and use the makeup primer after the serum ,
and for the dry skin use all three products with 5 mins intervals each means apply serum and wait for it to
sink completely into the skin then apply moisturizer and wait for
5 mins before applying the makeup primer and let it set before applying makeup!

I've been using this serum on a daily basis for over 2 years but it is not a spot remover. I love this product and I would say that this serum is more effective in evening out your skin tone, moisturizing, and firming. My sunspot on my cheek may not have gotten darker but it sure has not disappeared. Also, I have redness particularly on the creases around my nose and it does not deal with that as well.

I used this while on Accutane and it saved me a lot of dry skin troubles that the medication can cause. I would not recommend using it with a topical acne medication. Putting one before the other will prevent absorption of the products effect on your skin.
