In my search for Anti-Aging products to highlight in this series I came across the SkinBright site. I decided to check into it a bit closer since I had started noticing this summer that some darker spots were starting to appear on my temples. I am sure this is due to some sunburns that I have had over the years right above the area that is protected by my sunglasses and seems to get missed most often when I apply my daily sunscreen.
SkinBright Premium Brightener is manufactured by Premium Naturals LLC and promises to “remove the appearance of all types of skin discolorations including melasma, age spots, hyperpigmentation, and more. SkinBright is also a potent overall skin brightener that will bring your skin a light healthy glow, and a more radiant and even tone. SkinBright will begin to remove the appearance of skin discolorations and brown patches, in some cases, in as little as one month!”
Preliminary Results and Initial Review: I have been using this product for a little over two weeks and frankly did not expect to see any results for a few weeks yet, however the spots are already lighter and noticeably so (to me) after only two weeks of use. I have been applying a thin layer over my temples once per day. I allow that to absorb for about 10 to 15 minutes before applying the rest of my skin care products. I have about 3 or 4 light brown spots on each temple and they were light enough to cover pretty well with makeup. Just a couple of days ago when I was getting ready to apply the skin brightener I noticed that the spots were already lighter! I was stunned actually and very pleased so far with the results!
I will be back in a couple more weeks to update you on my progress. Results are typically seen in as little as four weeks of use, so I will update after I have been using the product for about four weeks!
1/26/10 Review Update: I have now been using this for about an additional 23 days. After I wrote my initial review I had the great idea to combine the SkinBright with my Baby Quasar treatment (meaning apply the SkinBright before my 30 minute light treatment with the Baby Quasar). To my complete surprise this combination worked like an eraser on my lighter spots and now they are virtually gone! You have to look very, very closely to see the faint signs that are left of them and the darker spots are MUCH lighter! In my (totally unprofessional) opinion the light treatment worked to accelerate the effects of the SkinBright. I don’t think that I would have gotten these results without the SkinBright but I do think the SkinBright would have faded my dark spots but it would have taken a longer amount of time. I am thrilled to have found this product and even more thrilled to find that it works exactly the way it is advertised to work!
How it works: The secret to SkinBright’s effectiveness is the combination of nature’s two strongest whiteners into a revolutionary, one of a kind product that is guaranteed to get results! Advanced levels of Alpha-Arbutin and kojic acid join with natural moisturizers to soothe and protect, while exfoliating skin and decreasing melanin production.
Apha-Arbutin is a powerful, yet gentle, lightening agent derived from the Bearberry tree. Alpha-Arbutin brings all the benefits of strong melanin inhibitors like hydroquinone without the strong odor, toxicity, and potential side effects. Alpha-Arbutin is quickly becoming the logical alternative to harsh skin lightening chemicals.
Kojic acid is a naturally occurring lightening agent derived from the production of Sake, the Japanese wine. Discovered in 1989, kojic acid is proving to be safe and effective in brightening skin discoloration and pigmentation spots on all skin types and shades, even on Asian, Black, and particularly sensitive skin.

A single bottle like the one I received for this review lasts on average one to one and a half months. However, mine will last a lot longer since I am only using it on a small area. I am guessing this will last me about two and a half to three months.
Where to purchase: SkinBright Premium Skin Brightener can be purchased directly on their website at www.skinbright.com. A single bottle is on sale for $49 plus $9.95 shipping. They have some really good deals for purchasing multiple bottles and you will still only pay $9.95 for the shipping.
