Indeed Labs Pepta-Bright has a lot of claims, but among its priorities is the elephant: improving skin tone. Whether this means hyperpigmentation, sun spots, or other varieties, this is my main concern--thus the evidence of Pepta-Bright. And, I'm happy to say that, with morning and evening application for a month, I have seen a decrease in the number of spots (though, pertaining to the acne variety, not thanks to this) on my skin. One of the downsides, though, is that I seem to be going through it rather quickly, especially considering the little amount that I use. Pertaining to effectivity, there is something that must be said: this magic only occurs when I don't have other spots coming in. In other words, if you have existing breakouts, this serum may not do much for you. But if you're complexion perfect and need some artifact lifting, then this is a good choice.
Among its other claims, it is über lightweight, non-sticky, and is effective at what it does, though it won't disrupt the rest of your routine. It has never made me breakout, and it seems as it would be suitable for sensitive skins, oily, and dry. It's scent free (finally; when will skincare companies learn that this is not the perfume industry) and non-sticky. One claim that falls a little short is that Pepta-Bright "maintains skin's moisture levels." I wouldn't say it's moisturizing at all. But that's not necessarily a bad thing. Like I said, it's non-interefering; I didn't need to switch around my moisturizer or other steps for this--think of it more as an add-on (your skin won't freak out without it, either). I did see a little radiance oomph with the help of this serum, but it's not cosmetic level material.
Although I may test out Advanced Night Repair again in the future and fall in love again, things are looking bright with this serum. It's effective at what I want it to do, and it's a bargain in comparison to other serums. I'm liking my slice of Europe.
