Stay away from this product! Utterly dissatisfied

Stay away from this product. Worst skin care product I've ever come across. After a few days of use my skin was worst then before. Dry, rough and flaky not to mention irritation during use. It would sting and itchy after application to a stage where I cannot sleep because of the irritation. Contacted customer service. Provided proof of purchase and pics but that was not enough. Considered money down the drain as they refused to refund. Very disappointing. I have used many different products and have not come across one like this! Show details

Reducing dark spot

ProX by olay Brightening spot fading essence as it doesn't greasy and leaves oily on my skin. The essence absorbs quickly. I'm happy that the olay formula helps a lot especially those like me who only wanted their dark spots to go away. Show details

No irritation

It's a very lightweight product that gets easily absorbed. Within a week of using the product, I have noticed that my skin tone seems more even and the acne spots on my chin have lightened. I will continue to use it to see how it fares in the long run. Show details

Amazing product

I love this product. I love how it’s absorbed easily by the skin. It actually helps with evening out skin tone and helps with fading dark spots. It keeps my skin well hydrated. I love how it gives my skin that healthy glow. Also, I have sensitive skin and this did not break me out. I highly recommend this product.  Show details

Lightens dark spots

Been using the product for over a week now and adding this to my usual routine is not tedious. I like that its fragrance-free and I'll join in the choir that this product is quickly absorbed by the skin. I have a combination skin type with dark spots so I was really looking forward to see if it will improve discolouration. I can say that some pigmentation were slightly lightened and I hope this will continue in the coming weeks.  Show details

OLAY ProX By Olay Brightening Spot Fading Essence 40 mL - review

- I didn't notice any changes at all, it's still early days, so I will continue to use the product ( I have started to break out, and I don't usually get pimples.) Show details

Moisturizes and great for sensitive skin

I have a sensitive plus a combination type of skin (oily and dry), and the first 7 days when I tried Olay's ProX was surprisingly good! The product was lightweight and gets absorbed easily by my skin.

Though I had a pimple while using it, which I think is due to hormonal changes of the month, I noticed that the ProX didn't give me any breakouts. Also, my pimple got dry in 3 days and it helped to lessen the darkness of my pimple mark.

Currently, it is Autumn here and my skin is supple and bright! Overall, I love it! Show details

Perfect for my skin

ProX Spot Fading Essence Serum by Olay helps to fade dark spots and discolouration for brighter, even skin.

I have been using the serum for quite sometime now and I am so impressed by its results.

It has already started to improve and lighten dark spots on my skin left over from old pimples. The serum is lightweight & easy to apply and not oily at all.

SACCHARINA-GLY-N COMPLEX™, helps prevent and reduce appearance of spots. With Laminaria saccharina extract, Undecylenoyl Phenylalanine and niacinamide reduce dark spots, discoloration & hydrates skin for even skin tone.

I use it with Moisturiser as I have a Sensitive Combination skin.

It is available on @olayau and @pricelineau

Dried out my skin

When I first tried it, my skin was so dry and flaky.
Thinking it's a one-off, I let my skin heal and tried again after a few days but had the same reaction.

Lightweight serum, does the job

Been having breakouts at my lower chin area and there's some scarring / dark spots. I'm usually wary of using new products as I might get breakouts, however, I didn't have any adverse reactions or any acne from it. I love it that the product is lightweight and not oily/thick to put on. It's also fragrance free. It has niacinamide to reduce the appearance of skin blemishes. Used it for a couple of days and my scars seem to have lighten. However, a bit disappointed that the product has alcohol. Show details

Broke Me Out

The ProX by Olay Brightening Spot Fading Essence was sent to me to review. It comes in a large bottle with a dropper. I applied to my face as recommended (2 dropperfuls) and it feels nice to the touch when applying. Unfortunately the product caused me to break out which isn't fantastic. I did see a slight improvement in terms of brightness, but I probably haven't used it for long enough to get any significant improvement in terms of spot fading.

I think the price point on this product is a bit exxy, and I wouldn't repurchase because it broke my skin out. It may work well on others but not for me.

Perfect serum

Loved using it on my skin, definitely feels plumper and hydrated. I am on my second bottle right now. Very light and goes on the skin absolutely smoothly without leaving it sticky or shiny.

Light Weight Fast Absorbing Formula, Works Well With The Rest Of My Skincare Routine

My skin drinks this product like it's water! Not only it absorbs quickly but it works perfectly with any of the serums I regularly use. It is a rather small bottle of 40 ml so I would have appreciated a bigger size (at least 50 ml) considering I use it twice daily. In terms of results, my skin feels less red than it usually does and my spots are slowly fading, which is great!
