I like the product but it's making my skin real dry

I bought the pure bright range serum, night cream and the SPF 50. Three weeks plus later I have notice my skin is brighter which I love. But my skin has also become extremely dry, is this normal while on the products. Do I add a moisturiser apart from the pure night and pure day? Would love to hear from someone.

I have uneven skin tone and this product was recommended to me. It seems to be brightening my skin while at the same time drying it out. I am alsi experiencing acne and bumps on my skin. Not sure Its worth it as my skin is incredibly uncomfortable now.

I was highly recommended this range by a friend. Been using it for two mOnths and do see my skin clearing slowly, however much of the pigmentation is still ther. Will take time I guess Unfortunately as It's clearing up my skin, it's really drying it out and my skin is very rough and bumpy with small acne after two months. I have always had very good skin apart from pigmentation.I'm using the purelight and pure night . What can I alter in this regimen to prevent this but continue the serum as I want to wait and use Dermalogica till I decide to go for a new skIn care line.

Love this product to even out my skintone and I had really red cheeks but they are totally gone. There's no fault that I can see but would recommend 2 pumps. It lasts a while so pretty happy with the price!

I'm a young black adult who's been looking for something to clear hyperpigmentation scars for such a long time. I've only bought one bottle so far and it's cleared my skin significantly, I'm so impressed! Clearest my skin has ever looked. I think my skin will be 100% clear after just a second purchase of this serum.

Gave me facial burns!!

My mother sent me a bunch of Dermalogica products to me after her friend recommended the brand. Almost all of them caused an immediate and extreme burning feeling as well as intense redness and irritation. This C-12 product in particular even smelled chemically and awful. I have tried just about every skincare line and have spent up to $300 on single serum bottles and never have I once had such a bad experience. All of these products have been trashed, except the ultracalming mist, which was nice enough for me to keep. Be very careful if you choose to try these products.. and please check with a LICENSED* dermatologist. !!!

I used c12 pure bright serum and it caused very painful bumps and acne on my whole face.i stopped it and start using after some break, it again caused me the same reaction..Sadly, I never expected such bad reaction from an expensive and renowned brand product . Looking forward for your helpful response...Very disappointed.

Can I continue to use this when I am pregnant?

Georgi

Hello , Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, PowerBright TRX is safe during pregnancy. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Hi I have got pigmentation on my upperlip area and chin. I also have lots of dark circles. My skin is sensitive and I'm not sure which products I should use for pigmentation and dark circles. Thanks Khadija

Kady

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use The Power Bright TRX Kit for hyper pigmentation. You can use Stress Positive Eye Lift on the under eye area. Kind Regards, Bernadette

I have dark acne scars caused by hyperpigmentation - is this the right product to treat it? Also, should I be using it with other products? Thanks

E

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. This can help post inflammatory hyper pigmentation. It will not reverse texture acne scars. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Are you able to use the product year round or do you need to cycle it in and out of your skin routine?

Nicole

Hello Nicole, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. For best results, use Power Bright TRX year round to treat and prevent hyperpigmentation. Kind Regards, Bernadette

I'm just wondering if the brightening products can somehow be used in combination with the age smart products. I would like to incorporate the pure night, pure bright, and c-12 into my regimen but I'm not quite sure how to do this and get the best results to help with hyperpigmentation as well as aging. A lot of the instructions say to use twice daily. Right now I use the age smart eye cream with retinol, the age smart serum, and the age smart overnight repair with retinol. Any advice on the best way to go about this? Thank you Kara

Kara

Hello Kara, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Retinol also brightens the skin. You can use Overnight Retinol Repair. When you finish the bottle, switch off to Power Bright. When you finish off the Power Bright bottles, switch back to Overnight Retinol Repair. You can continue in that fashion. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Can I use this in addition to the daily resurfacer? I have sun spots and I'm not sure whether to be using this or switching to the retinol repair and scrapping the exfoliant. Can you give advice please? Thanks!

fab@50

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use Daily Resurfacer and Power Bright to start. When you run out of product, use Overnight Retinol Repair with no exfoliants. When you run out of Overnight Retinol Repair, go back to exfoliating and using Power Bright, etc. Kind Regards, Bernadette

How can i include this with after cleansing I use active toner, phyto replenish oil ,and active moist. At night I use overnight repair serum. And would this make me break out? I have sun damage would it help?

Veronica

Hello Veronica, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use this to spot treat hyper pigmentation before your oil step and after your toner step. Kind Regards, Bernadette

What is the pH of the c-12 pure bright serum? I'd like to find a place for it within my current regime without having to sacrifice my Vitamin c 10% (pH 2.5-3.0) and daily exfoliant (pH 3.5-4.0).

Bist

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Our products are pH balanced to the skin and fall within a 4-6 range. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Most all of our products are pH balanced to the skin and will fall in the 4-6 range. Kind Regards, Bernadette

I am 16 years, and i am a little fair, will the product work for me? will the product also make my skin brighter and lighter?

zahira

Hello Zahira, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. This serum is to even out hyperpigmentation. It does not lighten the skin as a whole. It is best recommended for adults with hyperpigmentation. Kind Regards, Bernadette
