Reaaally brightens your skin, but it takes a while to brighten dark pimple spots

I use this product, along with the Spring/ID facial wash/toner, everyday. But instead of using this every morning, I use it at night, before sleeping. It makes my skin soft and bright in the morning. I don't even need to put moisturizer before leaving for work, just sunblock. This also helped brighten my old pimple spots but it takes quite a while.

Makes your skin glow and even

I've been using this product since 2012 and I really love it. I started using it once a week until I achieved a once a day application. I only use this at night and top it off with HHN's sunflower oil. It leaves my skin bright and glowing. Many complimented me for having a translucent and an even skin tone! Highly recommended!

good introductory treatment

this was my introductory illuminants treatment cream. i used it in conjunction with the illuminants toner. i did notice evening out of my skin tone and brightening effects with this. but after switching to the advanced treatment cream, the effects have become a lot more noticeable. i would recommend this as a starter dose to vmv's illuminants line. but if you want to up the ante, move up to the advanced treatment cream after.
