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!

Yes it really works. Ive been trying products for over ten years now and this really helped me. I would also suggest to get a good exfoliant.
You could try Vinoperfect Radiance Serum. It's most definitely worth a try. If you have a reaction simply return it for your money back gaurantee. It certainly seems to be gentle stuff.
I have sensitive skin but this product didn't irritate me at all. It does fade spots over time, but you may want to steer clear if you are allergic to grape seed extract.
