Best reported results of all Skin Brighteners. Multiple Women say this cream made their skin more even and their dark spots less noticeable than any other creams they tried.
Contains proven ingredients: City Views is one of the few products that contains ALL of the following proven, safe skin brighteners: Alpha Arbutin, Octadecendioic Acid, and Citrus Unshiu Peel Extract
Priced very affordably for the quality of ingredients: One bottle of City Views will last up to 3 months.
City Lights Radiance Perfecting Cream is a total-face skin brightener that uses ingredients proven to remove age spots, dark spots and many other types of skin blemishes. Its active ingredients include Alpha Arbutin, Octadecendioic Acid, and Citrus Unshiu Peel Extract, all of which have been shown to be safe and effective in clinical trials.
City Lights has what we like to call a Goldilocks consistency- not too thick, not too runny. It looks and feels like a high-quality lotion, and absorbs quickly into the skin without leaving a greasy residue.
Because it glides on, you can easily apply makeup over it, although the manufacturer recommends using it at night for best results. We would like to second this recommendation- while this brightener is gentle, it's also quite powerful, and adding sun exposure could be too much for sensitive skin types.
There is a slight fragrance, but it's quite pleasant, doesn't last long, and is unlikely to be noticed by anyone else. Other brighteners often have a medical odor, so you smell like you just stepped out of a clinic. City Lights's fragrance is actually a selling point, in our opinion.
It's important to note that City Lights is NOT a spot reducer. You want to apply this to your entire face, so that you get even, porcelain skin. If you like, you can add a little extra to dark spots, but you'll likely see plenty of great results from just general application.
Within about two weeks of nightly use, there was noticeable reduction in dark spot intensity, and our skin was clearly brighter and more luminous. This isn't just the type of change that you think you see, either- people will come up to you and ask you what you're doing to have such porcelain skin.
City Lights Radiance Perfecting cream is free of both mercury and hydroquinone, so you don't have to take any chances with your health. Additionally, it hasn’t been tested on animals, so your conscience is safe as well.
There was no stinging or irritation experienced with this product; rather, it's quite soothing and hydrating. Again, though, we recommend using it only at night.
Many of the truly effective skin brighteners sell for over $100, so we were expecting to pay at least that much for something this outstanding. However, City Lights is only $72, which is a ridiculously good price for a product of this quality.
It's a sizable bottle, and should last around 3 months. When you think that you can fade away the darkness for less than $25 a month, it makes City Lights a no-brainer.
Another thing worth mentioning is that many women reported saving money on foundation after using City Lights, which just further adds to the product's value.
Simply put, City Lights Radiance Perfecting Cream is the type of product that gets you noticed at parties. It outperformed everything else we tried, and at a price that's very comfortable.
If you’re looking to take control over your misbehaving skin, then City Lights is the best skin brightener you can buy, bar none.

I love this! I’ve tried a lot of “skin lighteners” in the past.. Some work, some not so much.. But when the warning for Hydroquinone came out with the reports of it causing tumors, I FREAKED OUT! I completely stopped using any type of product with hydroquinone – which is almost all skin lighteners.. When I saw this had no hydroquinone I decided to try it.. The results are awesome! This is up there with some of the top lighteners I’ve tried. I would highly recommend this! And especailly if you’re considering using any product with hydroquinone.
