Recent Reviews of Pigment Corrective Topical

Spot vanquisher – “This is the best treatment for discoloration I have ever used. It can be applied to the entire face, no worrying about targeting each spot individually. And it’s great that way, because the results are beautiful for the entire face—glowing, firm, smooth skin.” —From Sephora

This works - “Use this with Pycnogenol supplements. I have seen a BIG difference in the hyperpigmentation on my decollete. I have been using it for a few months so it takes some time but it DOES work.” —From Sephora

  1. I am 55 yrs.old. I have some dry skin but my biggest problems are roseaeca and redtinted skin on my neck that turns even redder at times. My doctor said the neck thing is from hormones. I haven’t found anything that works yet.

  2. I am only 37 and feel that my skin has dramatically aged just in the last year. I first noticed dark spots around my eyes. I have also noticed dark lines on my cheek. I would love to test the pigment correction product.

  3. I have some skindiscoloration. 4 months ago I have CO2 laser I still have the marks from the laser on my face I use sunprotection SPF 100 every day to protect my skin. I use hydroquinone during the night it help to clear my skin but when I stop using it, I see the discoloration is back. My skin feel thin.
    I have to go back to the Med.SPA in 2 weeks the dokter who treat me want to do IPL. I don’t know if my skin can take this. Everytime I use the hydroquinone my face is red. The red om my face is still there after the laser treatment. I wonder if Perricone would help my problem.
    Thank you for reading my problem.

  4. I hate my freckles. I only had a few before but now there all over. I really want rid of them so i’m trying the lemon juice,sour milk
    orange juice, red currant juice,parsley juice
    favorite moisturizer and UV cream.

  5. My mom is in her 50′s and has dry, dull skin and I wanted her to try this product to see if it might work for her. She is always helping others but I feel that she has forgotten herself. Please help! Thanks in advance.

  6. I have some brown spots on my face and hands and I wonder if pigment corrector would remove them.

  7. I have stubborn brown spots on my cheeks for the last ten years. After using Pigment Corrective Topical for 6 months, I noticed the browns spots lightening and the skin is clear deep down. Love to continue with this product and hopefully, my skin will be very clear soon.

  8. I am Asian with fair skin tone. I have sun spots, acne scars and freckles. I tried many products nothing have worked to even my skin tone. I would love to become a Perricone tester!

  9. I have been using Dr. Perricone nutritive cleanser, nueropeptide cream, face finishing moisturizer, and high potency evening repair.

    I have seen incredible results. In the time I have been using these products my skin looks younger and more glowing.

    But as I am getting older I noticed that some brown spots have been popping up. That’s why I want to try this product.

    I am a firm believer and trust Dr. Perricone. Please send me some Pigment Corrective so I can get rid of these brown spots (and not show my age) Dr. Perricone everyone thinks I am at least ten years younger than my true age because of your products and I want to keep it that way! Thank you!

  10. At 50 I would like to be awesome! I love the Perricone products that I use and would LOVE to try the PIGMENT CORRECTIVE because hyperpigmentation is my number 1 flaw.


  11. I am a product of the 70′s where we were uneducated sun goddesses, and went to long lengths to get a tan. At 47 I am really paying for it now. I don’t have a lot of wrinkles but I do suffer from hyperpigmentation (really bad), and my neck is quickly losing it’s elasticity. Help! I don’t like to look in the mirror anymore. I have done Fraxel, to no avail, had peels and tried many, many topicals. I need something that really works.

  12. Amongst other “age spots” that I have mainly on my hands, I have a round 7/8″ diameter dark spot on my right jaw, close to where the jawbone makes an upward turn. At first it was smaller and eventually grew to it’s present size, where it’s remained for a few years.

    I have shown it to two different dermatologists and both told me it is “just an age spot”. I worried about it for a while, but now have kind of forgotten about it.

    I have been told that it can be treated to disappear. However, I would prefer to use a product instead of a treatment and would be delighted to test your product.

    Thank you,

  14. I’m only 22, but I have hair skin with freckles. I once applied the Pigment Corrective in Sephora to my face (it was clean with no make-up), and I felt like it immediately dimmed the appearance of my overall multi-tone skin. I feel like consistent use of this product would make my skin look flawless – I would love to be a tester and find out!

  15. hi my name is norma amd i would like to try the perricone tester i have dark spots and i have try almost everything but nothing works so please i neeed help

  16. I went to the store looking for moisture relief and was told that I had hyper-pigmentation, I was embarrassed and shocked so now I feel panicked to go out without makeup to cover up my face! I’d love to try something for my “new” problem on my old face! :(


  18. Hi,

I have tried many product and it doesn look any better. I really love to try your product and be a tester. this may finally work.thanks and hope to hear from you soon.

  19. Hello,
    I am writing this on behalf of my mother. She is turning 50 this June! My mom has suffered from hyperpigmentation, and brown spots along her jawline and chin for about 10 years now, if not more. She also has super sensitive skin. I know she is very self-consious about her face. She won’t even go to bed without make-up on! She even goes to the lengths of having a graveyard shift for her job. I think it’s so she doesn’t have to be around as many people. This product sounds like it’s exactly what my mom needs. I would love to give her the opportunity to be a tester, especially for her 50th birthday!! Thank you for your time and consideration. Hope to hear from you soon!

  20. I do love to try this, as i have dark spots i my face and nouse nothing i’ve tried has work for me i have expend to much money but only promesses, but not work.

  21. I am a 54 year old woman with pigmentation on my upper arms. I have been too embarrased to wear sleeveless shirts for over five years now. I have also had rosacea for several years. Getting rid of this discolortion on my arms would really help my self esteem. I would be so proud if I could wear a sundress this summer.

  22. I have tried several products and spent a whole lot without getting results. The spots, freckles, patches are still very visible on my cheekbones and I look like a racoon if I don’t use any makeup. I need help. Am willing to become a tester. Thanks.

  23. I would love to try this product. I have pigmentation on my cheek area, spots and patches. I have tried so many different creams, even EA’s expensive cream,but I am still left with the pigmentation. My Derma too said nothing much can be done for brown skin (I am of Indian origin). After reading about your cream, can I be a tester?

  24. I am a light-skinned African-American woman with oily skin and hyperpigmentation caused mostly by acne scarring. I am wondering if this would provide results for darker skin tones or with this type of darkening since the description specifically mentions sundamage (none–not the outdoorsy type) and aging (I look about 10 years younger than I really am :). I’ve never tried any products specifically to help with this issue, although i have had microdermabrasion before which seemed to help with lighter spotting and i exfoliate regularly.

  25. I have translucent, sensitive skin w/many surface blood vessels and clogged pores. Most skin care products are irritating and blemish creams drying. The last Dermatologist gave me Finacea which grew facial hair. If I could only get the right products I believe I can walk in public w/confidence and wearing Make-up could be fun for me.

  26. I have spots, freckles, acnes scars on my face. I just want to know what it feels like to have beautiful, clear, perfect complexion skin

  27. I had done laser, used many hidroquinone products for get rid of brown spots and didn’t work for me. I really need help.
    Than you

  28. I have had alot of preskin cancers taken off my face Lots of dry scaly patches with red spots . I have age spots on all over my face, along with rosacea and scars from having so many places taken off. My face is sensitve to certain facial creams.My neck and hands are really showing my age.

  29. I have 2 large brown spots on my face that I am so self conscious about. They make me feel terrible about myself. I have tried almost everything that I can find and a lot of money to resolve this problem. So far, nothing has worked. I would love to try this product.

  30. I think I definately need to win this! I am a natural redhead(now dyed)with freckles but I was able to tan beautifully! So I spent a lot of time growing up in CA. outdoors hiking, skiing, tennis, sailing, you name it! Well, now I still look young but have lots of blotchiness, brown spots, uneven skintone & redness. I have just started taking DMAE orally so we’ll see what that does! I just talked my 29yr young & beautiful daughter to join me in the new 28d Start Fresh Challenge! FUN!

  31. I have spent way too much money on all sorts of products that promise to treat age spots. Please if this will work, I sure would like to try it. I am too young to have these horrible looking things on my face. I even try to cover them with different concealers and they don’t work.

  32. I would really like the chance to test this product, I feel like my skin needs some evening out.

  33. I am 63 years young but my face shows my age. I have brown areas that make my chin and forehead look dirty. Also, the age spots on my face, hands, arms and legs.
    It would be an honor to be a tester.

  34. I would like to get rid of a few age spots that have appeared on my face in the last few years and this sounds like it will work!

  35. Could it be possible at 61 to get even tone to my skin !!!! Please let me find out! I feel like a painted pony.

  36. Hi, Sue,

    Vitamin C Ester may help.

    In Dr. Perricone’s research of Vitamin C Ester, he conducted a study on patients suffering from psoriasis. After 8 weeks, an improvement in the appearance of the skin was apparent in those applying Vitamin C Ester compared with those using a placebo.

    Pigment Corrective is just one of several Perricone products formulated with Vitamin C Ester.

    Thanks for your question, Sue!

  37. My daughter of 24 has chronic psoriasis and I wondered if any of your products have been used by psoriasis sufferers? Would you recommend them for this particular disorder? If so, would it be possible for my daughter to try a sample please?

  38. I’m 35 years old, and for the past 5 years, I have been experiencing some FREAKISH hormonal changes that are getting worse and worse! I’ve gone to 4 different doctors, who’ve done NUMEROUS tests and bloodwork ups and NO ONE can figure out what’s causing my once very attractive, clear complected face to transform into acne flared, dry, dehydrated, wrinkled mess FULL of ugly and unsightly acne scars! I used to be a very active person who loved to enjoy the outdoors and participating in social sports. Now I’m SO TERRIFIED of my makeup coming off if I sweat too much, that I no longer do anything I enjoy doing anymore. And I’m sure the stress from being laid off in june and still NO JOB YET isn’t helping my situation much! I’m DESPERATE to find a product line, or even a PRODUCT that will give me some kind of hope, that if I follow the regimin to the T, I will EVENTUALLY see SOME KIND of improvement in my horrible and embarrassing complexion. I don’t expect a MIRACLE, but even some kind of noticible improvement would be SOOOOOO FANTASTIC! I would be ETERNALLY GRATEFUL!

  39. I recieved 2nd degree burns on the upper half of mybody including my arms and face,consequently I have discoloration…red patches and brown spots allover my face and arms which is really noticeable..esp in the summer(even though I use sunscreen! By the end of summer my face looks dirty! Its horrible…I try to remind myself that I’m lucky that I do not have disfigurements but….Its not a pretty sight. Would this product work on me? I’d like to find out!
    Thank you

  40. I will be 51 this month and of course my face is aging. I would love to test this product and then tell my sister and friends about it. we are all in our 50′s. and always looking for a way to erase our spots and wrinkels.

    Thank you


  41. Pregnancy has left unsightly brown spots on my face. It’s been 15 months since my daughter was born and they have not faded. I don’t have the money to spend on expensive creams. I’m only 32 but these spots make me feel much older.

  42. Hello,

    I would love to give this a try, as I have several small brown spots, as well as patches of redness on my neck and face. I use sunscreen religiously, but fear that the California sun may have gotten the better of my skin. I would be happy to provide honest and thorough reviews of your products.


  43. Hello,

    I’d love to try this! As a botanist, I spend most of my time outdoors, and despite taking good protective care of my skin, have sun damage and overpigmentation in areas of my face. I’ve tried numerous products to fade the discoloration, to no avail. I’d be happy to try this product and give honest feedback about how it is working for me.


  44. First of all I purchased this product as I was so elated that it was Hydroquinone Free (big thing for me). After a month the results were absolutely amazing. I have a facial redness problem and a few age spots on my forhead as well as age spots on my hands. Several applications and all was well, actually super well. No more redness, and age spots. I just turned 50 last month so when I find a product that takes care of my concerns, I’m a lifetime user! Hope to never see this on your discontinue list.

  45. this product is amazing!!!!! my skin is smoother and clear , i had acne scars and voila!! they gone!!! its’ the best !!!!

  46. I’ve taken good care of my skin & have tried many different skincare lines but I have never experienced such wonderful results as I have with the Perricone MD products I have tried. I was raised in CA. so I spent a lot of time in the sun. I went to college in Utah & was a ski instructor. The severe weather contributed to some uneven skin tone & wrinkles to which in my 20′s I used to say “if I have a few extra wrinkles it’s worth it” because I was having so much fun in the sun. Well now I am mid 50 & am so happy to have found skincare which is improving my skin each day! I would be very happy to try the pigment corrective topical as well as any products or samples. I love everything I’ve tried so far. I am commited to Perricone MD skin care. Thank you for all of the research you have done!

  47. I have brown spots on my face and it is making me look old.

  48. I would love to become a Perricone tester

  49. I’d love to try this, as I have some dark spots from acne and some discoloration. Nothing I’ve tried has lightened these with a noticeable effect. The ultimate goal would be to be able to wear less concealer!

  50. I’ve tried lots of topicals that supposedly help lessen the redness of my skin from Rosacea. So far, nothing has worked, and some products have made it worse.

    I wonder how this product would affect my skin.
