Did not work for me :(
I liked the bottle and the pump make the use very hygienic. I also like the texture of the product that make it easy to use. I read good reviews about the product and the brand and even though it is a bit pricey I decided to buy it. However, when I started using it, my skin became irritated, red and very dry. I continued to use it thinking that it would just be an initial reaction, but after 1 week, my face look like I was sunburnt all the time. After I stopped using it my the red patches started to disappear. Unfortunately, this product just did not work for me.
The Aussie summers are harsh and despite being diligent about slathering my skin with sunscreen, I still developed pigmentation issues on my cheeks and nose. A friend recommended LRP Pigmentclar serum to fade the pigmentation issue so here I am on my 2nd bottle of the product.
The serum is buttercream yellow with a lightweight consistency. It has a faint, fresh floral scent, which is actually a nice scent. Upon application, the serum sinks into my skin right away and doesn't leave any greasy residue or tacky feeling. It also doesn't ball or pill under moisturiser and makeup and I haven't had any sensitivity using this product.
Having used this serum consistently for over 6 months now, I have noticed It has faded most of my dark spots and brightened and evened my complexion. The imperfection isn't all gone but its definitely made progress fading away the pigmentation gradually. I want the pigmentation to all fade away so I will persevere with using this product. Its a great product with a cocktail of ingredients to exfoliate, fade away dark spots and brighten skin all at the same time.
After discovering dark spots on the (driver's side) of my face, I immediately went online and started looking at my options. As I had never used a dark spot treatment before, I was nervous eo invest in something new but the dark spots were bothering me enough to want to do something about it. All I can say is I'm glad I did - within a week I already noticed the spots becoming lighter. This serum leaves a soft-touch to the skin. Lovely and effective.
I was prompted to use a dark spot serum. Yes! I’m ageing and I do notice the small things happening to my complexion.

-Title I prefer really straight forward indicators of what I’m buying. Pigmentclar is not a word I understand.
But I saw “serum” and “dark spots” so this summed up my concern.
I’ll continue to purchase. As I’ve summed this product up as working on my “dark shadowy spots”
The La Roche-Posay Pigmentclar Serum is lightweight and not greasy on skin and I use it every morning and evening. I have very noticeable dark spots on my face from sun damages and after using a bottle of this serum the spots did became lighter than before. The serum also added hydration to my dry skin with natural glow and radiant.
I loved this serum, I bought it to correct some pigmentation spots on my face due to ageing and sun damage. After using the product for a while my spots faded considerably and I was really impressed. This is quite a luxe serum that feels lovely on my face, it sinks straight in with no oily feel. I think it’s great value for the money, even though it’s a little pricey as the results are so good. The serum is really hydrating and gentle, it doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin. I love the handy pump bottle and classy packaging. This serum was a winner for me, I would buy this again and recommend it
I tried this pigmentclar serum for few months and although it feels nice on the akin, but I don’t see any improvement at all.
The price is not cheap though. It’s not much content in 1 bottle so you might need to buy more bottles to proof it it’s working or not.
For me, I won’t repurchase it.
I have mixed reviews about this product. I liked the ease of use pump and the nice sized bottle. The smell is lovely, and it glided on with ease, but when I started using it, my skin became irritated and very dry. I continued as I wanted to make sure that I gave the product the best chance, but after 2 weeks, I had to go back to my regular moisturiser. Immediately my skin started to become softer and the red patches that started to develop, reduced. Unfortunately, this product just did not work for me :(

The La Roche-Posay Pigmentclar Serum cones in a nice handy pump and was easy to use.One pump of the mildly scented serum per night was all I needed to apply on the pigmented areas of my face. Smooth light texture easily glides on my skin with no stickiness thereafter. However the same cannot be said when i used it during my holidays in tropical country as it felt sticky after application. After using for a month I have yet to see any improvement on my face.I will use it till product finishes to determine if it really works.Price wise, wait for discount at shops if one is interested to try it.
This Serum has a luxurious feel to it as if it were a much more expensive product !
It was hydrating and quite light and the pump bottle was great with minimal waste or mess and is more hygienic :-)
My pigmentation has faded slightly and my skin does appear brighter which is an added bonus..
Some pigmentation though is very stubborn so not so sure about those patches; would most likely need a laser peel or something like that ?
Overall the scent is bearable but it still has a strange scent.
I would only buy this product if reduced in price in a sale as far from economical for me !
Light yet moisturising, the La Roche-Posay Pigmentclar Serum is a great moisturiser, which sits well under makeup on my skin. Coming in a luxury glass bottle, the serum is pumped out in perfect sized dollops. The fragrance was pleasant and very slight, which is great for a face product. My skin was left smoother and well moisturised - excellent! However, my sun-damage pigment spots were not noticeably faded - perhaps this effect would be more evident the longer you use it? Overall, a great daily moisturiser.
I was gifted this to trial, but have only used it once or twice, as it warns to use spf50 sunscreen when using - and due to it being the summer holidays, with lots of outdoor activities, I have been nervous to use it much! It feels lovely on my skin and smells nice so I look forward to using it more when I return to my office job!
I've been using this product most days morning and night for about a fortnight. I have a lot of dark spots on my face but I haven't found any fading just yet. I have found though that my skin does appear to look a little brighter & smoother which I'm very happy about. Despite this being a serum, I find that it's hydrating enough to use as a moisturiser for me. It leaves my skin soft & is nice and light. It has quite a strong clean smell which I really like, but if you don't like it or are sensitive to smells you may have trouble with this product.
The packaging is nice, it's got a great weight to it which makes it feel like good quality. I like the pump action as well as it means I don't have to get my hands in it. A small amount of this goes a long way so as far as price goes, I feel like it is good value for money (especially if like me you are using it as both a serum & moisturiser) and it's readily available as well.
I'm hoping to see some changes to my pigmentation soon, but if I don't I'm still happy with this product.
This product applied easily and smoothly on my skin. I used it daily as my moisturiser and my skin felt really hydrated.
I didn't however, notice a marked difference in my skin colouration over the month. If I was using it in winter it might have made a difference as there is also less sun exposure.
The eye cream was also lovely to use and I would continue to use this as part of my regular skin routine.
I have been using this product for a month now and it is a really lovely product to apply. I like the airless pump action which is great and the fact that you only need about 1 1/2 pumps to get coverage for your face and chest. I have a bit of pigmentation which is probably worse as i am in the sun a lot although i always wear sunscreen and a hat but it is always heightened in summer. The pigmentation is fading which is great. The product itself has a slight smell but that fades quickly.
This serum is light and absorbs into my skin without feeling sticky. One and a half pumps was enough to apply over my face, neck and chest. I have some pigmentation across my forehead and cheeks and after using this for just over a month I can say that the pigmentation is starting to look lighter. I used this at night along with my other face products. However just lately I started to experience some dryness on my cheek near my nose so I cut it back to every other night. For the price point I would have liked to have seen results a little sooner but overall I'm happy with what I have seen.
I enjoyed using this product and was hopeful that the pigmentation issues all over my face, notably cheeks would clear or at least minimize. This hasn't happened as yet despite using day and night solidly for 4 weeks. I will persevere as I liked the feel of this product on my skin and the pump bottle is easy to use.
Oh Emmm Gee!! I love this product. It’s incredibly light weight and fast absorbing. Left my skin feeling plump and hydrated with out any stickiness. I noticed a dramatic reduction in both pigmentation and fine lines. As a new mum I was looking worse for wear until trying this and now I look so much more fresh even without makeup.
I really liked this serum. Lovely consistency and felt quite luxurious. Applied to the skin very easily and not very much needed for each application. Skin texture felt hydrated and supple and appeared brighter and clearer in appearance. No tacky feeling left behind and makeup went on easily without problem. Great packaging which felt well made and expensive. Would recommend.
This serum is lightweight and hydrating (the main ingredients are water & glycerin) and I could see some slight improvement on dark spots but I will need longer use to see if this improves drastically (I have been using this product for about a month). Niacinamide (great stuff!) is the main brightening ingredient here which can be found in more affordable products. However, this product contains some extra beneficial ingredients: sodium hyaluronate, salicylic acid and ferulic acid. With that said, definitely follow the rules of using it only once a day as this could be irritating. The packaging is great and matches the higher price point. A let down of this product for me is the scent. It is a little strong for my taste and I'd rather a product be fragrance free to limit irritation. Would I buy this again? For that price point and the fact that the main ingredients are fairly basic and that is contains fragrance, maybe during a Priceline sale but not at full price!
