The essence is quite watery and opaque but when you apply it to the skin, it gets absorb quite fast leaving behind a silky skin. After one week of using it, it does brighten up my skin. I think it will work faster to lighten the stubborn dark spot if you use it with other brightening products.
Although it is a drugstore products, it does work as claimed. The essence is to apply all over the face so do not do spot treat or you will get one patch of area that is brighter than the other area!
However, if you have acne prone skin, don't use any whitening/brightening products.
