Brightening serum

Hi! I’m looking for a brightening serum to use. I’m medium-tan skin tone w a few dark spots around my face and have kinda dark eyelids and under eyes. My skin is also pretty dull too. 

for background info-

I’m 17 years old.

I have combination skin(dry around checks and oily around the t-zone.)

-I use the #CeraVe Hydrating Serum

Eucerin Daily Hydration Body Cream with SPF 30 as sunscreen for my face; and I just bought the The INKEY List Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL 





Re: Brightening serum

Hi @tas9633 ! I would suggest The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA Hyperpigmentation Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Oil Control Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL The INKEY List Niacinamide Oil Control Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL  are all great, affordable options!


I hope this helps!

Have a wonderful day and remember that you are beautiful no matter what 💕

Thank you so much for the recommendation! 

Should I wait a while until my skin gets used to the Hyaluronic Acid I introduced to myself yesterday or should I start using the The INKEY List 15% Vitamin C and EGF Brightening Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL  right now?
