After filling in an online survey form, I received a complimentary 2ml tube which lasts for more than 3 weeks. I used it on spots for the first 2 weeks before using it all over the face a couple of times, and thats how I finished up the whole tube.
It has the typical lovely floral scent found in Shiseido products. The lightweight texture is runny ( lotion-like) and gets absorbed into the skin easily. The SA told me that I could even use it on my undereye area to alleviate my dark circles.
However, I use it on my face only. It claimed to be able to banish dark spots within 10days but I only see a very subtle difference in my 3rd week of usage. My dark spots seemed to be slightly lighter and dispersed, rather than a dark cluster. That said, I have to confess that I am also using a whitening lotion from Naruko which I would be reviewing soon.
It retails for $159.
