La Roche-Posay Pigmentclar Serum Review 
Does your skin resemble a spotty Dalmatian? If you're looking for a gentle pigment-evening serum, La Roche-Posay Pigmentclar Serum may be up your alley.

It's active ingredient niacinamide (a B vitamin) has been shown by research to reduce excess pigment production, while lessening and potentially clearing dark spots. With dimethicone and water, this helps to calm down upset skin. Unfortunately it does contain alcohol denat, so it may not be suitable as a single agent for dry sensitive skin. (Check out my post on Alcohol in Skincare Products)

I've been using this serum for sometime now. The packaging is perfect. Slim and practical. The well designed pump makes it easy to gauge how much product you want to take at a time. With 1-2 pumps, I massage it on freshly cleansed semi-damp skin. I find it absorbs very well, within 3 minutes in fact, without a sticky residue. It has a pleasant faint fragrance, but it can potentially irritate sensitive skin.

Being a serum, it is not a moisturiser and would require a separate moisturiser or oil on top. It also contains alcohol which makes it a tad drying. I usually apply moisturiser 30seconds to 1 minute following serum; my current choice is La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra Overnight Moisturiser.

As for its skin evening properties, its perhaps difficult to tell in person, but my skin definitely feels smoother and brighter. To sustain any brightening effects from using this product, make sure you use a sunblock with SPF30 or greater during the day time.

Overall, I would recommend La Roche-Posay Pigmentclar Serum for its brightening properties and the soft radiant glow it imparts. Dry skin textures should perhaps avoid or ensure you use a heavy duty moisturiser in conjunction with this product. If you have oily or combination skin, this may be one to try!
