I did not use a brightenting essence prior to purchase. I like product a lot – it has a light, fresh scent, absorbs quickly and is easy to incorporate into a routine. I use this in conjunction with other products, including the vinoperfect brightening serum, and have started to see minor improvements in the evening of my skin tone and lightening of dark spots.
