I've been using this set for the past near 2 weeks. It's not obvious but I have uneven skin tone on my face where my forehead and nose is darker than my cheek area lol. After using this the darker tone has lighten slightly (did not religiously use it day and night especially when I am lazy :p). So far I have no discomfort when using this set, and loveeee the scent as well! Not too overwhelming. Face is more hydrated, and felt like I did not use anything on my face. Bwahaha. Imagine how light it felt!

4.5 / 5
