  12. I have pigmentation on my cheeks, I have always used sun creams to prevent this but over the years its not getting any better. I have tried every cream you can think off and have spent a lot of money on face creams and facials which seem to brighten my skin for a while. I have also had around 14 caci treatments but the marks are still there. At the moment I am using trilogy rosehip oil and dermologica products. Although I have very good skin for my age (41) I am still very concious of my pigmentation. I have never used your products and would love to be considered for testing your products.

  13. have brown dark spots on cheeks forehead, it has put down to hyperpigmentation due to onset of post pregnancy. now 5 years ago. i tried allsorts of product to no lasting avail and i feel so desperate about getting rid of this. i try hard everday 2 cover it sufficiently with foubdation but that does not look really great as i need to use darker shade to get full cover. ive heard about pigment corrective and its great results.

  14. My complexion has become darker, am 49 years. I tell you, I am self conscious about it!. God has given me such a beautiful complexion, I want it back! Please help!

  15. I am having stubborn dark marks from side of the forehead toward my ears, and below my cheeks. This has gon eon for more than three years or so. I am currently on Clarins Intensive Moisturiser. I once used Dr Perricone MD when I was still younger, however it was discontinued where I was getting it. I am rather on dry side.

  16. I am 56 yrs old with some dark spots on my upper cheeks. I like to become a tester. Thanks

  17. Recently, I purchased Pigment Corrective and already my skin is responding. The almost immediate improvement in fine lines, uneven skin tone, redness, sunspots/damage has me searching for a continuing supply. I am disappointed to learn that it has been discontinued. If finances permitted, I would invest in the full line of Dr. Perricone’s products so I would really appreciate a chance to win another bottle. Thank you.

  18. Please consider me! I have this large spot on my cheek and EVERYONE wants to know what it is !! Even with makeup on!! I asked the dr and he says its just an age spot. It’s really embarrassing when even your mother wants to know what’s wrong with your face!
    Thanks…… Spot :(

  19. I’m only 20 years old and when I turned 17 I started getting patches of hyper pigmentation on my back and chest area.I desperately would like to try anything that could help fix this, I haven’t been able to wear anything that exposed my back or go swimming in a two piece bathing suit for close to 3 years now and it just keeps spreading.

  20. My skin is noticeably even toned and clear. My friends at work asked me “What am I doing different…? ” I told them to try Dr. Perricone Corrective Topical. I am in my 40′s and have worked outside in the sun and have had some acne scarring. This product have virtually erased many signs of damage and redness.

  21. Love this product ,really notice the differance in my skin when not using it due to unavailibility in my area. Going to order online from now on.

  22. Hi I have literally tried EVERYTHING, diligently used them as the directions told me and nodda, zip,zilch- I still have melasma on my forehead and sides of cheeks, in the summer time I wear a hat anytime I am in the sun and combined with 70 SPF. SO I have tried all these products: Clinique even better clinical dark spot corrector at $50-well I can say that it did not even make then lighter. Oh and I have tried KIEHL’S photo-age corrector high potency spot treatment Nordstroms another $50 out of my pocket with NO results to be seen. ALso, have tried Clinicians Complex 6 Percent Skin Bleaching Cream$59 AND Clinicians Complex Skin Bleaching Cleanser$35, from DERM STORE…….So PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE- I would be grateful to try this product-since I have heard that it really DOES work.

  23. Hi, I am an 18 year old who tried the pigment corrector which I bought from Sephora. My face is covered in acne scars and hyper-pigmentation spots and the only product that helped was the pigment corrector. It made almost all of my scars disappear. I tried to purchase another bottle but I found that it is no longer available. I would appreciate a bottle since this product has become a staple for me. Thanks

  24. I have tried everything! From prescription hydroquinone, to over the counter vitamin c treatments, retinols and nothing has helped with my discoloration. I actually have more hypo-pigmentation- where I have acne scars that are white and have no color. I do also have brown spots too. I’ve had several dermatologists just call it melasma.
    I love Perricone MD products and would love to test this product out!

  25. I’ve had severe hyper-pigmentation above my upper lip for a few years now. I’ve used several corrective treatments, none of which have been successful. I would love to try this product to see if it can actually correct my skin problem. However, I’m a PhD student and cannot afford to buy expensive skin products!

  26. Can this product be used on arms & legs? I’m developing brown spots & hyperpigmentation on both of these areas(UUGH!!!)

  27. i have this dark in my cheek for long time i cannot afford it so my friend told me try i started to see difference love it i cannot. offiord it would like to win a bottle thanks

  28. I have several brown spots on my face, that I would love to see a reduction in. I am willing to try anything that might help.

  29. Hi there everybody I simply desired to expose myself. If you have any questions please ask. I’m sorry for my negative english

  30. I’ve had hyperpigmentation/melasma on my cheeks for four years now and I’ve tried many products with little or no success. I’m very interested in Perricone treatments and in using good nutrition to improve my skin – I’d love to try out this topical product and see if it lives up to the hype!

  31. I’m 16 with post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation on my face from a procedure I had done to remove large beauty marks. It is in 3 separate spots.
    I bet all of you know what it is like to be 16 and self conscious of everything and have low confidence. It is just hard to try to cake on foundation over the spots when it is so noticable. I feel ugly.
    It has been nearly 7 months, I’ve tried microdermabrasion and another hyper-pigmentation cream to no avail. I hate feeling this way and sounding desperate but I really do want to try this. It would mean the world to me.
    Thank you for the oppertunity.

  32. Hello, I have melasma and have tried many treatments, lasers and many creams to get rid of it. I take care of my skin with sunscreen everyday many times however the spots remain the same. I love Dr. Perricone’s brand and have a lot of faith in his products. I would really love to try this product. Thanks!

  33. I have some dark spots on my face and have tried numerous products, I have great results about your product line. I would love to be tester. Tired of trying products that do not work and spending money with no results. I would like the opportunity to try a product that I have hears good results about before wasting more money without results. Looking forward to a great opportunity and using a product that I can continue seeing results and know that the line has other products that I would benefit from to offer. Sincerely, Sandra

  34. I am 42 years old. Prior to my pregnancy, I had clear skin without any age spots. Because of my heritage (Irish-Asian), it did take longer for acne spots to disappear. I haven’t found a product that doesn’t contain hydroquinone or other harsh substances that has helped my age spots lighten.

  35. I have hyperpigmented areas that come with age, hormonal fluctuations, hair growth(chin and cheek areas), and excoriation. I need a product that will give me results in less than 6 weeks. I have gotten away form hydroquinone becsue of the megative studies associated with it. It is mt desire to find a product that I can use and recommend not only to friends, but to clients as I am a licensed esthetician, Thank you in advance!

  36. Sun spots, red spots, freckle spots, liver spots, ugh, I need a disappear spots……….

  37. I would love to be a Perricone tester! I commented on one of your other products but “pigment corrective” is the one for my blotchy, uneven skin tone. This particular product was highly recommended to me by a friend. It would be awesome if Perricone could truly make a difference on my face!

  38. Is there any irritation with this product? I find it is the irritation that makes it worse. I would love to find a product that is gentle and powerful.

  39. I am 45 and have had a blotchy face for several years now. Nothing has worked for me, I would love to try this product!! If it works I would be your best marking tool for this product!!

  40. I got my first small spot above my lip when I was pregnant. I jokingly called it my “Hitler Stash” because it grew to be two little spots on each side of my lip. Now, it is a complete dark spot that covers my entire upper lip. I also have a few other smaller spots on my forehead and cheek. It is very embarrasing, because it looks like I have a mustache. I am very self consious, make up and concealer (even yellow concealer) does not cover the darkness. I have tried everything, spf 50 (I am outdoors a lot) even a rx from the dr. Nothing works, and when summer comes around they just get worse. I am 39 and my skin is very young looking- oily with no wrinkles. I am very anxious to try a product that actually works. I would be a great candidate for testing especially if you wanted before and after photos.

  41. I have chloasma/melasma, large and quite pronounced on both sides of my face (Africa on the left, Australia on the right) that developed during my pregnancy ten years ago. Three years ago it also caused a darkened circle on my chin (the entire protrusion). Two years ago (and this is my favorite)…above my lip so that when it darkens it looks like I have a mustache. Fantastic. Since then I only use SPF 100, never go out in direct sunlight, even using an umbrella during sunny days managing to stay pale-ish without further darkening on my upper lip or chin. I’ve used Clinique’s Even Better Dark Spot Corrector, the whole bottle…nothing. 2% Hydroquinone treatment lightened over my lip just a touch. Will this product, if I test it, help what is not just “age spots”?

  42. The older I get, my skin seems to be prone to hyperpigmentation. I have spots from acne (trauma to the skin) and half moon shaped dark areas around both my eyes from the sun. I would love to be able to use a product that will actually correct my hyperpigmentation!

  43. I am 55 years old and I am very skeptical now since I have tried many products and I have seen no results. Every product promises results and my spots are not getting any lighter. Laser is going to be my last option as it is very costly.
    I need to know there is hope out there for me.

  44. I am so pleased with the Perricone Corrective Topical it has erased my age spots a 80% and feel save it is hidroquinone free I believe the product is result of outstanding research and dedication I considered it my fountain of youth. Thank you

  45. I am east Indian woman, 38 yrs old. I have been battling with hyper pigmentation for about 15 years. I have wasted tons on money during this years to get rid of it. I would love to be a tester for this product.

  46. I have some light skin discoloration on the left side of my face (more so than on the right). I would like an even tone throughout my entire face. I look rather young for my age (43) and would like to keep it that way!

  47. I have dark spots on my right face. My skin is beautiful for my age. 37 without any wrinkles or anything else. However, this spot popped up a few years ago. Unsure when. I think it was probably after a beach vacation in 2008. To rid of it, I’ve had 4 chemical peels, which lightened it up a little. However the spot is still there, and it starts to get darker again a couple of months after the peel. I am hoping to find something that would really help.

  48. I have the worst dark spots on my left cheek (seriously looks like the map of the Hawaiian islands)that popped up when I was pregnant. I’ve tried everything short of lasers to remedy the problem. I’m not even 40 and these spots make me so self conscious. Concealers don’t adequately cover them and I feel like it’s the only thing people see when they look at me. I would love to finally use a product that truly makes a difference and will restore some of my confidence. Thank you for the opportunity.

  49. Hi – I’m 44 yrs old New Yorker. I have combination skin (oily/normal) with sun damaged (dull with brown spots) from the teenager years of baking myself in the sun. I am always on the road looking for holy grail for my face. I have looked up and down from drugstore brands to high end brands with no luck. Thank you!!

  50. I have extensive discoloration on jawline. Some of it is hyperpigmentation from acne scarring, the rest I’m not sure of the cause but my skin looks very blotchy. Would love to find something that would fix this!
