Back in June, I was give a bottle of NIA24 Rapid Depigmentation Serum to try as a Bloom Ambassador. NIA24 is a line of products designed to help repair moderate to severe sun damaged skin. I do burn incredibly easily with my fair skin, but I am only 27 years old and I hate the outdoors (I live in Florida for crying out loud) so I really don't have more than a few spots on my face to complain of as far as sun damage goes. On top of my few spots, I also have very uneven skin - I have a pink/red undertone is several places and it's really obvious. Now, I'm not one of those people that can't be seen in public without makeup for fear of what others will think, but I do like to look my best whenever possible so I try to never go out without at least a tinted moisturizer or foundation on just to make my skin look not so red and spotty. When I read that this product will even out your skin tone, I was immediately drawn in and wanted to give it a try.
How about the application?
The serum is supposed to be applied in the morning and at night and followed by a moisturizer. I really enjoyed adding it to my nightly routine especially since it's nice and quick. Also, it has a very nice faint scent. You really don't smell it while putting it on, but afterwards I always noticed a nice floral smell that was nice to fall asleep to.
So, how did it perform?
I tried my best to get good photos so you can see the difference, but I really don't think these photos do the results justice.
I give this product 4 out of 5 stars! I'm really happy with the results I got from this. It definitely takes a while to show results, but just with the results I have already seen in 12 weeks I'm confident I will see more change with continued use. I think it's unrealistic to think that a product would instantly change your skin, so I don't hold the time against it. The redness reduction is what I'm really sold on. I can see a big difference in how even my skin tone is especially in my problem areas. If you have a problem with redness or with dark spots and sun damage, I would absolutely recommend giving this product a try :)
