Rated 5 out of 5 by from It took a little bit of time, but I fell in love with this product. I got a couple of samples from Sephora so that I could try it before I made the step to make the big purchase. It's thin and creamy and took a bit time to work. You really have to be dedicated with these products, it will not appear overnight. You're not gonna wake up and not have spots. I don't have terrible discoloration and it took about a month to show.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This stuff was amazing, I got it from a friend who thought it would be more up my alley as they received it as a gift. This is probably the most effective product I've used for targeting blemishes and I've tried a lot of other alternatives (usually I've had a history of buying drug store treatment as a bargain shopper). It's a little pricier than I'm willing to spend for something I don't have constant issues with-- preventative care works better for me. But if you find yourself needed to do targeted spot treatments, this is a great product for you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I give this a three stars for myself since it did little but moisturize my face rather than target my zits. However my mother tried it (she has a normal complexion) and worked wonders for her. Her skin was all clear and glowing after a week's use, she experienced no rashes, no aches or burning sensations whatsoever and she highly recommended it. I probably would not buy it again as a spot treatment but I have to say it did leave my skin a glowing sensation and it smelled really good!Peter Thomas Roth Potent-C™ Targeted Spot Brightener

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this product. I will say right off the bat this will not completely get rid of your dark spots, but it will fade them a lot. If you use this when your spot is still red (before it turns brown) it makes a huge difference. I love this and when I run out I will definitely be repurchasing. I received this product for free to test all opinions are my own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have to say I was skeptical of this product at first as many other high end brands claim to achieve this and do not deliver. However, as I love this skincare line I decided to give it a shot and I was not disappointed. For my sensitive skin it is extremely hard to find products that do not dry out or irritate my skin especially in the acne category . This product was able to brighten my skin, while not causing any irritation or additional breakouts! It has earned a permanent spot in my make up bag and is an absolutely go to!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is definitely a game changer, it has lightened the dark spots I have on my skin, due to post inflammatory hyperpigmentation/acne marks, which are really dark. The smell, I am ok with. I know Ferulic Acid has a distinct scent, but I have used products with this ingredient and I am used to it. I love this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very effective dark spot treatment. I love how fast it faded the spot after hormonal acne on my chin and cheeks. I can see obvious result after one week of use. The smell is pleasant. The texture is creamy and easily absorb to the skin. I used it after serum and before moisturizer. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Growing up going to the pool every day and always being in the sun, I have noticed some sun spots around my eyes in the past few years. I have never really addressed them since they are light enough to be covered up well with makeup – not really bothersome. I started using the Targeted Spot Brightener on them and noticed a difference right away! They were lightened almost immediately. I also have acne scars, and this cream has definitely helped smooth and lighten those as well. Good smelling and concentrated.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just started using this to clear up acne scars from picking (I know I should stop but can't ) and I've seen improvements. After a week, the scars are still there but definitely lighter. Vitamin C has truly been great for my skin and helping out redness and scars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I absolutely Love this line! I received all three products for testing and I can’t rave enough. The smell is wonderful (almost like a cinnamon) and I have noticed a difference in my skins appearance with each product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this stuff. I got this and two other PTR products in a voxbox. I love all of it and it really helps. I would love to keep buying it after I run out but it’s a little on the expensive side so I doubt I will.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No Results Yet I've been using this product twice a day for a week, and thus far, I see no results. I was extremely disappointed and surprised to see how small the product is for the price. It's smaller than many sample sizes of other products I've received from Lancome or Elizabeth Arden. Hopefully, but the time I finish the tube, which I'm using on two sunspots, I'll see some fading of the spots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I didn't find this product to be as irritating as other vitamin c products. It doesn't have an obnoxious smell but if you keep the product for too long, it can develop one. Be mindful of using it within 6 months

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have combination oily/dry skin and have always been self conscious about my dark spots underneath my eyes and chin. I was really looking forward to trying this product because it promised to provide a solution for uneven skin tones and dark spots. Upon first application, I noticed the pleasant citrus smell of the product. A little goes a long way, and I only need a tiny dot of product to cover the dark spots under both of my eyes. Now that I have been using the spot brightener for about a week, I have definitely noticed an improvement in the size and appearance of my dark spots (and so have my friends and boyfriend)! I have not previously tried any spot brighteners, so I am so glad to have found one that is perfect for me and does not irritate my sensitive skin at all. It is well-formulated, smooth and light, and I don't feel like any product is wasted on my fingers. Overall, I would absolutely recommend this to a friend and to anyone with sensitive skin looking for a solution to dark spots or uneven skin tones! I received this product complimentary for testing purposes but all opinions are my own.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I have excema on my body but it never really attacks my face. But it is in my bloodstream and I do notice when I use the wrong product on my face (i.e. glycolic acid) it will burn and red patch. This is what happened with the Potent-C. I have tried it in both the targeted spot form and as the oil. Neither are my faces' friend and I will not purchase again. If you have excema or very sensitive skin, I would recommend asking for a sample and test it for atleast 7 days.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I attempted to use this for acne scarring and discoloration on my chin, but unfortunately it only made me break out more. I added this into my skin routine slowly, to avoid any shock to my skin, but still broke out more. It left my skin feeling and looking oily. May give it another try, but did not see enough change to continue using. Very high in price, especially for a spot treatment. I’d prefer spending a few dollars on using tea tree as a spot treatment.
Date published: 2018-10-03
Rated 3 out of 5 by from I like that it comes in a squeeze tube as its hygienic, the product won't be exposed to air and the small tip was a plus. However, it took me a while to see the difference on the dark circles around my eyes. I didn't expect that it has a fluid texture than cream-like and it was not as hydrating as I thought it would be. With its price point, i was really hoping that it would perform better than most of its vit.c eye cream counterparts from other brands.
Date published: 2019-04-10
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I hated this product. It's still sitting on my shelf, over half a tube left. Is it effective? I don't know because the smell was so off-putting that I can't use it. It smelled like rancid mushrooms. It also was super greasy and made me break-out. I rarely give negative reviews. I usually think, "Well maybe the product just isn't for me." Not in this case. This one was just a terrible experience through and through.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was lucky enough to receive this product from Influenster (along with the eye cream and serum), and I actually passed this one to my Mom to try. I had mentioned to her that I wasn’t sure how I would test this product with no dark spots (yet, haha). She expressed interest in giving it a go, so I sent it her way. This is the review she sent back to me, in her own words: “The Peter Thomas Roth Potent-C Targeted Spot Brightener has been quite effective on my 57-year-old skin. I chose to use the product on an area of my face that I considered a "lost cause" as far as brightening up, an area along my lower right cheek/jaw line, where years of HRT had created an elongated area of darkened skin, one of the side effects of HRT. The darkened area had abated somewhat now that I'm 4 years away from the medication, but I wanted to put this product to the test on a very difficult area created by medication side effects. It took about 7 days to notice that the area around the darker spots was brightening, but at day 10, the actual dark spots began to lighten up also. One of the best parts of the product for me was that it blended in within a few seconds with no residual oiliness or lingering scent whatsoever, enabling me to apply moisturizer much sooner than I expected, yet allowing the product to work nearest my skin well before applying other product layers. As always, I'm impressed when just a very tiny amount of product has a great coverage area, and this product excelled in that area for me. Overall, I believe this product was particularly beneficial for skin affected over a 17-year period from HRT. I will continue using the product.”

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love that this is great for all skin types. I have discoloration on my forehead and this brightened has reduced the dark spots but has not gotten rid of them quite yet. Time will tell. I wish the container was able to stand on its own but that’s not a deal breaker. It kind of smells like cloves which is ok with me but some may not like. The product is a little thicker and feels nice and smooth once applied.
Date published: 2018-09-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a miracle in a tube. For people who have persistent dark spots from scarring or sun damage, this is a must have! I have tried countless brightening products and this is hands down one of the most effective. I noticed visible lightening of some of my darkest spots after just a few days of using this product consistently. I highly recommend using this paired with the Potent-C serum for best results!
Date published: 2019-01-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is one of the best Vitamin C products I have ever used! I use a Vitamin C serum every day and nothing compares to how much this brightens over my darker spots on my face. I get really bad acne in some places and am really pale so spots show up really easily. This lightens them in a few days time, whereas without it it would take at least a week - if not a month for larger spots! Love this stuff!
Date published: 2019-04-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is expensive, but works so well. I bought and was like if I dont see a difference Im gonna take it back. After about 3 weeks I was like okay my eyes are not deceiving me. I have many acne scars and this has helped greatly to even them out some. I recommend this for sure. As a black woman, I havent found many products that brighten instead of bleach the skin for dark spots. Its a winner for me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It makes my dark spots to become even more visible I noticed some sunspots in a little part of my right side face so after comparing some products I decided to try this one since I really love using their eye gel mask. I have been using this spot targeted product for a month, I know that they said that you will only be able to see the results after 12 weeks, but problem is not only there is no difference my sun spot color is getting darker and more visible than ever!!!! It's not really visible before I apply this product, my friends didn't even notice, but after I apply this product, they keep asking me since when I got sun spots on my face even after I applied a thick suncream SPF 50 and cover it with make up. It's getting more and more visible!!!! I really don't recommend to use this product. I bought it with a pricey price hoping it will give me the best results, but on the contrary it getting my sunspots getting worse and worse.
Date published: 2019-06-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This really does a great job of reducing dark spots. I used it while walking through Sephora a couple of times and honestly noticed a difference just from testing it out on some bad dark marks I had. I would definitely recommend, but it's a bit pricey for the amount you get (VERY small amount). I'd almost say better to just go to Sephora and use as a tester than spend that amount of money on it.
Date published: 2019-03-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This little baby is MY favorite spot corrector. I was using the MURAD for a long time but my skin was still drying out and still sensitive to anything because it was so raw. I started using this one because it had the highest form of Vitamin C from any other brands. That being said i feel moisturized and I definitely see those old acne scars becoming lighter and closer to my natural skin tone !!
Date published: 2019-01-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had the WORST pimple in history between my lower eye & nose. Instead of popping it and causing irritation, I kept my face clean. Eventually it came to a head. Let’s just say it was still ugly! This is my first time using spot brightener, and this product actually works! I wish I had pictures to show you wear the pimple was and how it looks now... GONE! Get to Sephora, NOW! It’s worth it!
Date published: 2019-01-29
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Brightening cream is not one of my favorite skincare products but I was excited to try this out since I loved the other two products from the line. While I do believe you can see definite results, my skin is very sensitive and the product seemed to leave a tingling feeling. Would definitely recommend this to apply after a breakout or to fade scars for people who have not as sensitive skin.
Date published: 2018-09-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have a lot of old acne scars and spots. This product helped with those dramatically and I saw results relatively quickly. I know in general most vitamin c serums will help with that but this one penetrates deeper into the skin helping it absorb and work faster. Though Id definitely recommend it, the product is quite pricey and you dont get a lot of it so thats something to be mindful of!
