I LOVE the A-Luminate Serum. Even wirh .25% Retin-A, I peel constantly. I'm an Aesthetics Nurse and my patients love A-Luminate so I decided to try it instead of Retin-A. It gives the same results without being as harsh! Now I even recommend it to my patients who insist on Retin-A. Using this beforehand, for a few months, helps acclimate the skin to prepare for Retin-A.

Bright skin!

This product works wonders! I used for all over pigmentation, some dark spots, and sun damage I have. In a few weeks I saw improvement and in a few months pigmentation gone and dark spots lightened or gone! My face feels and appears more youthful and smooth . I will continue to use this product I absolutely love it!

I NEVER write reviews but got this as a sample with my other products, and it is LIFE CHANGING!!! My festoons under my eyes look so much better. Also, I’ve had hyperpigmentation from two zits for three weeks. I used this for two days and the hyperpigmentation is almost gone… I am now a believer!!! Wanna bath my whole body in this stuff, lol!

Amazing Product.

I absolutely love this product. I had really bad dark circles underneath both of my eyes. I started using the A-LUMINATE BRIGHTENING Serum and my dark undereye circles were diminished greatly. The A-LUMINATE BRIGHTENING Serum is a game changer. I will continue to use the A-LUMINATE BRIGHTENING Serum.


To open, twist the top silver collar of the bottle until the pump emerges completely and clicks into place. To close, twist the opposite direction.

Yes, this serum is intended to be applied twice daily for maximum results.

Our 12 week studies showed no irritation.

A-Luminate Brightening Serum™ is designed to be used all over the face.

We recommend trying Restorative Skin Complex instead, which addresses overall aging concerns.

Yes! Considering all forms of pigmentation (sun spots, melasma, freckles, hyperpigmentation, etc.) are triggered/accelerated by UV rays, it’s important to wear a broad spectrum sunscreen on a daily basis such as HydraTint Pro Mineral Sunscreen or SilkSHIELD All Mineral Sunscreen.

Yes, A-Luminate can be used with retinol.

Yes, A-Luminate Brightening Serum™ may be used on other areas of the body such as the neck and décolleté.

This is based on your unique skin and the severity of your pigmentation; as such it will vary from person to person.

Yes, ALUMINATE is an at-home complement to in-office cosmetic treatments such as chemical peels or non-ablative laser; always consult with a  physician for individual regimen recommendations.

Please consult with your health care provider.

Physician insights

“As seen by the clinical data, A-Luminate Brightening Serum™ is very effective in improving the appearance of skin tone, texture, and redness for mild to moderate pigmentation, when used for 12 weeks. It will be great to offer my patients a product with such impressive safety and tolerability.”
