While it is packed with powerful ingredients, it appears this serum takes time to fade dark spots


Softens, smooths and brightens; non-hydroquinone


No fast-tracked results

The additional seven day extension I gave my four-week trial period for the Clarity Rx Let There Be Light Powerful Lightening Serum ($120) gave me a glimmer of hope for this lightening treatment. After trying a lot of other dark spot faders with uneventful results through the years leading to my age (50-something), I am resigned to the fact that there is truly no instant topical potion to erase dark spots. Yet with a deity-commanding phrase for a product name and the fact that it is packed full of promising heavy-hitters, I had to resist giving up too soon.

First, there is the botanical rumex occidentalis extract, which has been used instead of the much maligned carcinogenic yet rather potent and effective hydroquinone as a key ingredient in several skin brightening products. Rumex’s ability to inhibit tyrosinase, the enzyme that causes melanin production, is intensified with another ClarityRx key active, alpha arbutin, found in three of TIA’s 2015 top five hyperpigmentation products. Nonapeptide 1, a skin conditioning agent, is another active ingredient that prevents synthesis of melanin. Rich in vitamins A, C and K, brassica oleracea acephalia (kale) extract also makes an appearance to reinforce the product. ClarityRx Let There Be Light is also formulated with hyaluronic acid and seaweed extract to hydrate, nourish and revitalize the skin.

Sadly, after four weeks of applying this serum targeting the dark stubborn spots on my cheeks, there was barely any distinguishable lightening observed. However, the texture on these areas felt softer and smoother. After another week, there appeared to be a noticeable fading, but only to a very slight degree. I say that only because it took less layers of concealer to make the spots less visible. Just as I expected, four weeks is not enough time to judge the efficacy of any skin lightening products, including ClarityRx Let There Be Light. Nevertheless, I will continue to apply it twice daily and see if there is an improvement to report in another four weeks.

    Dark spots are very difficult to get rid of because they go all the way down to the basil layer of the skin. While Ruminex does help to inhibit tyronsinase production, depending on the formulation of the product, the Ruminex may only be penetrating the top layers of the skin and not reaching the damaged cells that are found deeper down, where the dark spots are actually being produced. There are really no "at home" products that are going to give you the results that you are looking for, or at least not quickly. Lactic Acid is probably the most effective ingredient on the market for helping to correct hyperpigmentation. To get the best results you should see someone for a series of professional Lactic Acid Peels; for home use look for one or two products with LA to add to your routine. If you have dry skin I would avoid it in a cleanser. ClarityRx actually makes a take a home strength LA that works really well. Good luck!

    Thank you for taking time to do this test for us Imelda - and for sticking with it. Dark spots are pretty tough and, clearly, our quest for a solution continues.
