Work like magic

ProX by Olay Brightening Spot Essence Serum I was very excited to try the ProX by Olay Brightening Spot Essence Serum as I struggle with a uneven skin tone, acne scarring, the odd hormonal breakout along my jawline and and open pores on my nose and slightly on my inner cheeks. I noticed no scent when I opened the serum, the serum the directions say to use two full droppers and initially I thought that you would go through the product extremely quick and that it would be far too much but I wanted to give it a go and follow the instructions. It was too much for me to use two full droppers so decided to use one I found doing that was still plenty on my face and neck and absorbed well. I found my skin tingly the next morning and my nose was a little flaky and dry in spots particularly on the sides of my nose so after a few days of use decided to use on alternate days to build my skins tolerance. I am very pleased with the results of this serum on my skin. I have used many serums promising a even skin tone and brightness and done has ever delivered like this has on my skin. I will definitely continue using this and cannot wait to see further results. I found using two full droppers to be far too much and a waste of product, I tried using one dropper and it was still plenty for my face and neck and absorbed well into the skin.

LIGHT WEIGHT FAST ABSORBING FORMULA

My skin drinks this product like it's water! Not only it absorbs quickly but it works perfectly with any of the serums I regularly use. It is a rather small bottle of 40 ml so I would have appreciated a bigger size (at least 50 ml) considering I use it twice daily. In terms of results, my skin feels less red than it usually does and my spots are slowly fading, which is great! It works perfectly with the rest of my skincare routine, including serums and moisturisers and I haven't experienced any irritation.

Improved my skin tone

This product is good for fine lines and wrinkles. I used for 2 weeks regularly in night, I can see the improvement on my skin. This is very light weight and easily bendable. This is ideal for all types of skin. Little massage is good when applying. Wait for at least two weeks for results. Packaged in an opaque white bottle with a pump dispenser, this lightweight, hydrating lotion applies easily and works well .Front-loaded with ingredients proven to intensely hydrate skin.Contains a healthy dose of niacinamide to deliver brighter, healthier, youthful skin.Fluid-gel consistency is compatible with all skin types.Packaged to preserve the stability of the formula.Fragrance free.

Miracle worker

I was always not sure of essences as, to me, it looks like just adding another product to the skincare regime. I liked this essence a lot as I have noticed a difference within a week of using it. Its a very lightweight non oily product which gets easily absorbed and keeps my very dry skin hydrated. I do need to still follow it up with a serum and moisturiser since my skin is very dry. Within a week of using the product, I have noticed that my skin tone seems more even and the scarred spots on my cheeks have lightened. I wouldn't call it a dramatic improvement but yes it is an improvement and I will continue to use it to see how it fares in the long run. Another pro of this product is that it didn't irritate my sensitive skin in anyway and didn't cause any breakouts either.

Great product and will recommend

Amazing and truly brightened my problem areas. No nasty smell or heavy feeling. A new staple in my skin care routine. My skin looks and feels better after only 10 days of using this, easy to apply and works well with my skincare routine. I love how light it feels when applied and doesn't leave my skin shiny or uncomfortable. I had a few problem areas and have noticed a lot of brightening on those areas. Olay has not always been something I would choose but this has really changed my mind for future reference.

Good product

Easy to apply and absorbs nicely. The only downside is that it doesn't have instructions on the bottle so if you have a terrible memory like mine, you'll have to keep the packaging. Other than that though its a good product and would recommend for anyone with dark spots. Easy to apply and absorbs nicely.

Zero fragrance great absorbs well

Been using for 7 days every night. Haven't noticed much in the way of lightning serious spots or pigmentation (which i was really hoping for) moisturises well and my skin does look brighter. And I love the no fragrance I dont think face cream need one. Packaging was a bit cheap feeling with the plastic bottle, but it is recyclable so that's a plus for the environment. I dont think I would this buy this product again but there are other olay products I have that I love and feel work well and would recommend them.

Lacks value for money factor

Could have been better value for money. Need to use too much product. It gives the results but the cost is high for the time the bottle lasts. It does a good job. I will give it a few more days before I can comment on the excellence of the product. The texture of the product is not very sticky. It’s a nice serum. Could have been better value for money.

Another pro of this product is that it didn't irritate my sensitive skin in anyway and didn't cause any breakouts either.

like it but will give some more time

I have very sensitive skin when it comes to using new products .. I was bit sceptical to use this at start ,scared of adverse reactions at start but seriously I never had any reaction . I Like this product ..I have few acne dark spots and bit of dark area around lips and chin .. I have noticed a fair amount of difference, have used it for a week so can't say any huge difference is there but enough for my eye to notice but will keep on using this and see how it goes will definitely recommend this product.

Looks promising

I have been using this for about 7 days now and have noticed a very slight improvement in the appearance of spots on my face. I get the occasional breakout here and there but my main concern is the pores and the spots left behind by years of breakouts. I had never used an essence before as part of my skincare but in the last few months I have tried out two and both were by @olayau. This is definetly something I am looking to include in my skincare routine long term. Now this essence is more like a serum so not too watery. It does absorb into the skin fairly quickly and doesn’t leave me too shiny. I can apply my moisturiser straight away and it has been nice to use. I am really excited to see how my spots fade with continued use.

Reduces dark pigmentation spots

I was desperately in need of something which would help me get rid of my pigmentation. Post pregnancy I had developed a dark pigmentation patch on my upper lip. It looked like a mustache. I used to feel so awkward and embarrassed. I used olay brightening spot essence serum for ten to twelve days, mostly before bed time... And the black patch is barely visible. My skin feels plump and fresh ... I will definitely buy this serum again. I have dry to combination skin and I did not break out on using this product. The base is watery and the skin drinks it all up and the face feels nice and hydrating.

Broke Me Out...

The ProX by Olay Brightening Spot Fading Essence was sent to me to review. It comes in a large bottle with a dropper. I applied to my face as recommended (2 dropperfuls) and it feels nice to the touch when applying. Unfortunately the product caused me to break out which isn't fantastic. I did see a slight improvement in terms of brightness, but I probably haven't used it for long enough to get any significant improvement in terms of spot fading. I think the price point on this product is a bit exxy, and I wouldn't repurchase because it broke my skin out. It may work well on others but not for me.

Not for Me - Probably Better for Oily Skin

What I loved about the product: When they day no fragrance means...no fragrance! I had experienced in the past that no fragrance meant no added fragrance but the actual smell of the product wasn't great. Olay did a great to keep is neutral. I also liked that there was no waste - the dropper dispenses just the right amount and doesn't waste on the side. Not a fan of: I was very keen to see if it helped with some dark sun spots, but unfortunately didn't do it for me. In terms of the brightening effect, I also don't think it did much for my skin type; I have dry skin and it seems the product actually dried out quite quickly. I would assume it might work best for oily skin as it doesn't add any greasy feeling at all! Final verdict! I'd give it a go if you have skin on the oily side!

Well done Olay for this amazing Product!

I enjoyed using ProX by olay Brightening spot fading essence because it wasn't greasy and hydrates my skin very well. I use it day and night and it easily absorbs by skin and it's not oily at all which I was looking from a product for so long. I can now say that the search is over!!!! Im glad that the Olay team has come up with this formula which helps people like me who wanted their dark spots to go away! I was never confident with my skin having dark spots because of pimples and being under the sun for too long. When I started using ProX by Olay Brightening Spot fading essence, dark spots were slowly fading during the 2nd week. Now, I feel more confident and happy with my skin. It is more radiant and even than ever. I think you should try this out too!

Very happy

I was always scared of using any sort of fading stuff on my face because of their after effects and most of them left my skin more dry and patchy. But with Olay Pro X, it’s amazing to see the results. I got some stubborn spots after my daughter’s birth, 5 years ago and they were not fading off. However, I won’t say that they are totally gone but yes my skin tone looks more even now and it’s just 10 days. Can’t expect more. The serum is really smooth and non oily and seamlessly absorbs in the skin. I love it’s fragrance too. Would definitely recommend it to family and friends.

Hit and Miss

A very lovely serum. The product absorbs fairly quickly onto my skin, has a nice silky texture, not greasy and leaves a matte-satin finish. I find the 0% added fragrance is very appealing to me since my sense of smell can be quite sensitive with facial products so this element is great. I do have some discoloration on my face, which I can say hasn’t faded much and still have the discoloration on my face.The spot fading essence was okay to use, but it just didn't do anything. The product claims to "Significantly reduces the look of spots in 2 weeks" but it wasn't the case despite using it day and night religiously.

Work like magic

It work like magic. I have combination skin and uneven skin tone because of having some pimple lately, it leave me dark spot after, I been searching for products that can help, after trying olay pro X Essen, the texture just like surum and it,, Fragrance free, it really soothing my sensitive skin. for about 2 week I can see my pigmentation fading and no more breaking out, and my skin tone more smooth, I noticed some fine line on fold head is disappeared too, would recommend for those who have uneven skin tone and pigmentation.

Great smooth bright results

The ProX by Olay Brightening Spot Essence Serum was fantastic. I was skeptic at first as I have found some Olay products in the past were too oily for my skin; however this serum melted into my face perfectly without any oily residue. I was pleasantly surprised with the softness that my face felt after using the serum. I was able to happily go without foundation for a day and saw that the evenness of my skin tone had improved after just 1 week of using the serum. I found the serum pleasant to wear and that there was no strong fragrance to the product. Overall I saw improvements to the look, evenness and feel of my face after using the ProX by Olay Brightening Spot Essence Serum.

Lovung my skin more now

This product is design to target and treat skin issues at the source to fade the look of hyperpigmentation. It also improves the appearance of your skin, leaving you with a brighter, more even tone skin. Its contains potent anti-aging ingredients which are Niacinamide, Sepiwhite and Laminaria saccharina extract which helps to fade the look of skin discoloration such as sun spots and dark patches. Use as part of your morning and evening skin regimen to reveal brighter, more even tone skin. I have used this product for a while and I really like its texture and how quickly it dissolves in your skin . It is color and fragrance free. My skin is sensitive so it didn't leave any irritation. It is giving my skin a glow and any discoloration or dark spots are getting lighter and now recurrence of acne is very much less often. I loved it because I love products with niacinamide in it. NIACINAMIDE have so many skin benefits which are that it treats acne and hyperpigmentation, protects against sun damage, minimizes redness ,blotchiness, pore appearance, fine lines and wrinkles. The most important thing is being persistent. You have to keep using it for a long time , I believe upto atleast 3 months or more to see the actual results. I would recommend this product to all.
