Osmotics Cosmeceuticals Lighten FX Serious Brightening Solution Review

Press Sample (Affiliate links)

Who of us is not guilty of periodically sitting outside for longer periods of time than one has intended, and without sufficient sunscreen reapplication? As vigilant as I am in applying sunscreen, last summer I sat under my umbrella loaded up with sunscreen while I sat and read. I was so absorbed that I failed to continually move my umbrella to shield myself from the sun, and I missed a reapplication or two of sunscreen. The result? Overexposure on my chest that mimicked the scooped neckline of my t-shirt. This coupled with any cumulative damage to the area over the years resulted in a small colony of sunspots that serve as a potent reminder of my negligence that day. Therefore, when Osmotics wanted to send me their Lighten FX Serious Brightening Solution I eagerly agreed.

According to Osmotics,

Visibly lightens and brightens discoloration and uneven skin tone, while helping to prevent sun damage. 

You can reveal ageless, healthy skin with a luminous, translucent complexion that takes years off your appearance, making everyone look younger. High performance serum lightens and brightens uneven skin tone, hyper pigmentation, discoloration and aging, brown spots with safe and natural, clinically proven ingredients.

The triple-action formula features a new patented molecule to visibly lighten the skin and prevent UV damage; Niacinnamide to brighten, moisturize and smooth and Alpha Arbutin to target melanin production and prevent future discoloration. Lighten FX is also perfect for blemish scars and is completely non-irritating. You’ll see a brighter more even-toned complexion and beautifully, luminous skin. This serious brightening solution is perfect for all skin types and can be used on the face, hands and body.  Perfect for anyone looking for a brighter, luminous complexion. 
  • Visibly lightens discoloration, uneven skin tone & brown spots
  • Triple action formula safely delivers fast, effective results without irritation
  • Helps prevent future discoloration and damage from UV radiation
  • All Skin Types
My experience: I somehow expected that Lighten FX was going to sting or at least tingle, but I found it non-irritating on my skin. I simply apply a pump or two in the morning and at night and then follow with the rest of my skincare routine. It soaks in quickly and leaves behind no greasy film or residue. After a couple of weeks of use I noted that my sunspots became less prominent, and really showed signs of fading away. It was after three weeks that I could really see a difference. The longer that I use it the better the effects. Of course I wish that I hadn't sustained the sun damage in the first place, and rest assured this coming summer I will be very mindful not to repeat what I did last summer, but I do have a new tool in my arsenal to deal with sunspots when they rear their ugly heads. It really works like a charm.

  • Alpha Arbutin – a natural lightening ingredient derived from Mulberry Extract. Inhibits melanin production to prevent future discoloration.
  • Niacinamide – brightens, moisturizes and smoothes; has natural anti-wrinkle properties.
Suggested use:  Apply one to two pumps to clean, dry skin. For best results use morning and night, before bedtime.  Proceed with your daily skin care regimen.

Note: It is important to use sun protection daily to prevent future discoloration.
Overall assessment: This is a very effective sunspot lightening formula, and I am very happy to have it. However, before you try to treat sunspots on your own do yourself a favor and see your dermatologist to make absolutely positively sure that what you perceive to be sunspots isn't actually precancerous or cancerous lesions. Sometimes what appears to be a benign sunspot can actually be a malignancy, and the last thing that you want to do is add topical treatments to these areas since it could exacerbate an already serious problem. However, if your doctor gives you the green light-- then I think that you will be quite pleased by the results from Osmotics Cosmeceuticals Lighten FX Serious Brightening Solution.
