  • It may take longer time to deliver the results
  • It may not help to get rid of freckles and sun spots
  • It requires long term application to achieve desired effects
  • It doesn’t correct sun damage

The Dos and Don’ts While Using City Lights Radiance Perfecting Cream

  • Do apply this formula in just a pea size at night by massaging it into the skin in circular motion

  • Do not tug or pull down on skin while applying this formula
  • Do not use it if you develop allergy to any of its active ingredients

Final Verdict

While this product brightens your skin and improves your skin tone by inhibiting melanin production; however, it may take longer time to deliver the best results. It tingles your skin when applied. It may work on sunspots and dark spots by making them less noticeable, but it doesn’t completely clear the freckles and severe dark spots even when applied for longer period of time. One can look for other skincare products that work effectively and deliver results in a shorter span.

  • It is an effective but pricy product! I bought this cream for my daughter and get very pleased with it. She wants one more bottle but I don’t want to order it due to its price. Is there any other skin lightener that helps to get healthy and lighter skin within an affordable price?

  • I used this cream for my sunspots and discoloration of skin, but it didn’t work for my skin tone. I am really frosted with this product. Don’t waste your money over this!

    • Hello Honor, I also have sensitive skin and I have used this serum for sunspots and dullness. I got radiant skin within a month only. So as per my own experience I recommend this cream for all who have sensitive skin.

    • No Mrs. Bland, you are wrong. I am using this cream from last 3 months and it is working on me. I know you don’t believe me, but it’s true. I think this cream doesn’t suit you. You should try another one, for skin brightening effects.

  • I started using this product, just 1 week ago. I’m noticing some good effect in my skin dullness and uneven skin tone. However, the product price is not letting me to buy it again. Good product with expensive charges.

  • I am 32 and have these dark patches on my skin due my habit of smoking. I quitted on my smoking habit and started using this cream on a friend’s recommendation, but this cream was a big disappointment. Even after using it regularly for 3 months there was no positive sign. Badly disappointed!

  • I am 23 years old and I opted for this product as my boyfriend is very fair and I had dullness on my skin. I wanted to have a radiant skin, to feel compatible to my boyfriend as I used to a bit of an inferiority complex I front of him. This product does work on my skin and the dullness has now taken a back seat. There is still some cream left to use.

  • My daughter used to have a these dark spots and her skin got dull after her phase of depression due to her divorce. Then I bought her this cream and there are some positive signs seen on her face. Her lost charm and radiance is coming back and with this improvement my daughter also feels happy.

  • I have noticed that my skin looks much healthier as compared to previous since I use this product regularly. It works well for my skin. My skin looks lighter and even healthier!

  • My friend suggested me this cream for a flawless radiant complexion. I’ m now happy to see myself (rather be better to say my skin) in the mirror with a big smile on my face.

  • At university people stare me because of these ugly freckles around my eyes and I feel ashamed of these. Sometimes I even feel envious with the other guys and girls of my age. I heard of this product 2 weeks back and I am using it for 6 days now. I must say that I do notice a slight difference in my skin and freckles getting a bit light in color. Hope it works well! Will Keep updating.

  • 6 months back I went to a beach party and since there are sunspot and small blemishes on my face. I looked and tried various products to get my issues solved, but nothing seemed to work. It’s been a month now that I am using this City Light Radiance Perfecting Cream and I am immensely satisfied with the results and even excited to see more beneficial results. My sunspots are no more there, but there are few blemishes left. Waiting for more benefits!

  • No need to try it! I tried for 3 months but didn’t get any positive outcome. Tired of waiting for the results! Don’t waste your money on this product! Try something new!

  • It’s really an effective skin brightening cream but I can’t borrow it since it is very costly. I can’t afford it. My cousin was using this cream for her ark spotted skin and get really fair skin. I am really happy for her but I also want to look fair like her. Can anyone suggest me some good skin brighteners?

  • Such a waste of money! I ordered this cream after reading customer reviews about this product but it was a complete waste for me! It didn’t help me to get brighter skin tone rather than it I got some red patches on my cheeks which made ugly.

  • I have heard a lot about this cream. One of my sister is using this cream for her dull skin. Today I also placed an order for my damaged dull skin. I hope it will work for me like my sis.

  • Please order this cream after reading customer reviews about this cream. I have used this cream for my dull and aged spotted skin but didn’t get satisfactory results. Now I am looking for one of the best skin brightener that may provide me both lighter and healthy skin.

  • Such an effective and safe City Lights Radiance Perfecting Cream is! I am using this cream to get relief from my dark skin tone that I am facing due to increasing age. It is helping me to cop my issues however it feels quite slow but I am happy with the cream.

  • I am 30, I have very fair skin, and fair skin shows redness worse than any other skin tone. In all honesty, I love pale skin. I’ve been using this product for about two weeks and the spots are fading but not many. This product works but the amount in the bottle is just not economical, in that it will not last for over two weeks, so you will have to order more than one bottle. In addition, why put such a small amount in such a large bottle? Please read the amount stated before purchasing.

  • I have read a lot about this cream but I personally don’t find it effective. So I returned this cream and ordered a new serum named Lumnaskin for my dark skin. I hope this will help me to cope with my dullness.

  • What a miracle! I was searching for one of the best skin brightener for a radiant and younger looking skin, without any side effects. Money doesn’t matter to me, what matters is quality and this cream really impressed me.

  • I am very much excited to use this cream for my dull skin. Today I got the delivery and I am going to apply this cream for today’s party. Hope it will not disappoint me!

  • I have fair and dry skin. I always wanted to have moisturized skin, so I decided to use this cream. Such a great stuff dude! It helped me to get hydrated, to have younger skin. Thank you City Lights!

  • I have tried a lot of skin brighteners in the past, some work, some not so much. When I saw this product, I decided to try it. The result is awesome! I get complimented every day on my youthful skin. But it’s really pricey…….

  • I purchased this cream after using several natural and chemical products to carry away my dark marks and sun spots. I am using this cream from last one month. This cream has done a wonderful job, evening out my dark spots and sun spots along with age spots on my neck areas.

  • What a skin brightener dude! I have used this cream for my dull skin and got incredible results within a couple of weeks only. But I have issues, with only its price. It is very expensive. Everyone can’t afford it.

  • Hmm… it is effective, but quit pricy! Everyone can’t afford this product. Is there any other product available in the market that contains all natural effective ingredients and is safe to use? Eagerly waiting for your response!

    • Yes, there are lots of products available in the market. I used Lumnaskin for my dark patches and uneven skin tone. It helped me to get clean, clear, healthy and brightened skin tone. If you want, you can give it a try. It is effective and safe!!! :)

  • I love this product! I have tried several skin whiteners for my dull skin, but never got the desired results. Some of them work a little while some of them not at all…. But when I started using this, it impressed me a lot. City Lights Radiance Perfecting Cream provides me lighter and moisturized skin.

  • This cream really helped my dull skin it gives your skin an amazing glow. My skin not only became more clear but also much more radiant and smooth in texture. Amazing stuff.

  • I’ve battled pigmentation issues, dark spots and freckles for years and after using this cream I’ve noticed a fairly dramatic improvement in my skin’s texture. It gets rid of dark spots and freckles. I have tried more expensive creams but this is the only one that gives me a real long term results.

  • I have lots of freckles on my face. They look ugly on my face. All my friends have smooth silky skin, this totally caused a lack of confidence in me. Then one of my friends told me to use City lights. I ordered it and started using it. But my skin has become very dry with its use. SO I stopped using it. I also don’t find any difference in my skin tone and my freckles are just the same that they were before applying this cream.

  • I used this cream for my sunspots and discoloration of skin but it didn’t work for my skin tone. I really frosted with this product. Don’t waste your money over this!

  • It is my 3rd month with City Lights Radiance Perfecting Cream and I am really impressed with the positive results. I am going to continue using this cream for the next one year.

  • I am in love with the world of City Lights right now! They are making some AWESOME skincare products that beat a lot of high end skincare I’ve tried. Seriously this is a game changer for me.

  • I have used this cream, but didn’t get the desired result, but today I can say Lumnaskin is really an effective skin brightening serum since it vanishes all my sun spots and age spots. 

  • Really I was very disappointed with this cream. I brought 2 bottle for me and my sis but it was my mistake. How stupid I am! No need to use this product! Not recommended!

  • As per the official site City Lights helps to deal with sunspots, blemishes and discoloration. But I am not satisfied with this cream! It actually didn’t work for me!

  • I have heard a lot about this product but never used because of its high price! As per many customer reviews City Lights Radiance Perfecting Cream does what it claims to do but the only difficulty is it’s HIGH PRICE!

  • Hello Linda, I have a sensitive skin with aged spots and freckles. Can I use this cream to lighten up my skin tone? Is it safe and effective to use this City Lights Radiance Perfecting Cream? Eagerly waiting for the reply!

  • Body Soap dries up my skin a bit, and leaves my face with a bit itchiness or oily sometimes! But City Lights Radiance Perfecting Cream provides me fresh, shiny, healthy and glowing skin without any side effects. Happy with this cream!

  • I had melasma which looked ugly on my fair skin. I used to apply City Lights for improving this skin condition. In just 4 weeks my skin has become very clear and all the melasma has gone. Now I got back the natural glow of my face. You can also apply it on your legs to make them soft. Now I will use it always and will recommend to all my friends.

  • City lights radiance perfecting cream is a very effective skin brightener. It gently moisturizes the skin and I use it several times on my body. I don’t feel any irritation after applying this cream. My dark spots also have completely gone away. I am very pleased with this product. It’s truly the best skin perfecting cream.

  • I purchased this cream from the official website when I read its reviews which I accidently found while net surfing. I apply it twice daily for making my dull skin bright. Now in just a week everyone is noticing and giving me compliments for my dewy skin. :)

  • I am fed up of my sun spots and blemishes, so I wanted a product to achieve the flawless and radiant skin. I have read in its reviews that it provides instant results. But after using it for a long time I have not achieved any beautiful change in my skin tone. Sorry! Can’t use it anymore!

  • My skin is very sensitive to the UV rays of the sun. I developed sunspots and to remove them I ordered City lights. I was greatly moved by the claims that it makes the skin glow and gives a mesmerizing sheen to it. After using it for several days I am not so impressed with my looks. I am feeling that this cream only boosts and do nothing to change the texture of your skin.

  • It’s not a great product to have bright skin and remove all the flaws… I had tried many beauty products but none of them really worked… I spend a lot of dough on them and then I purchased City lights after reading the reviews that I found quite convincing. But I can’t say that it is an ultimate product that removes the skin flaws. I didn’t notice any big change in my skin condition. It’s totally a useless product.

  • I always dream of having a beautiful skin tone and spend a lot of time on makeup. But still I am not satisfied with my appearance and want to make it more radiant and silky. For this purpose I tried City lights. But after 2 months also I am unable to find any changes in my facial skin. I am going to stop using it and want to purchase another effective product that works.

    • Hello, surely anyone can use City Lights! Its brightening characteristics are supposed to rejuvenate and bring back the lost shine and bring brightness to any kind of skin complexion. Females with more matured skin can get good help from its amazing capability to lessen the appearance of sunspots as well as discoloration, whereas younger females may use City Lights’ proactive elements to help positively prevent marks and discoloration further!

  • I had lots of freckles on my face and I probably try to hide them behind makeup. Then I got City Lights. It does wonders for my skin. All my freckles have disappeared and now my skin looks flawless.

  • City lights radiance perfecting cream is quite expensive but I tried it for making my skin moisturized and plump. But I don’t find it effective for a longer time. At the end of the day my skin becomes dry and worn out. I have to apply it many times to make my skin look better. Now I am in search for other skin brightener for my skin.

  • This product did not work for me. I only had a bit of lightening on my skin along with miniaturization. But my sun spots are still the same. I am looking for some other effective product. Suggestions please!

  • Hello Faith, I want to know whether this cream really does what it claims to do. I want to gift my loving wife an effective skin brightener on our 5th anniversary. Waiting for the reply!

    • Hello, you can order this cream for your loving wife since I and my friend Mia we both got required results with this skin brightener. No Worries, Must Order This Cream!!!!

  • City lights radiance perfecting cream does everything, claimed by the manufacturer. I have clear skin, all the dark spots are fading, it doesn’t block the pores, and on the application of this product my skin begins to feel and look smooth and fresh. It’s an excellent system. I’ve invested big bucks on creams at Neiman Marcus and Saks; But Radiance perfecting cream is by far the best!

  • I bought this City Lights Radiance Perfecting Cream because of the claims that it would help to get rid of dark spots. But it didn’t! :( It certainly wasn’t worth the high cost and I would not consider using it again.

  • I used to apply make-up to hide my freckles and was tired of using make-up every now and then. Moreover using make up even made me have break outs on the T zone of my face. Then my mother bought me this product, and believe me in just 2 weeks all my freckles faded almost 70 percent. I am still using it as my skin feels happy and fresh after using it.

  • My husband loves simplicity and is even not so fond of makeup. So he never preferred me to put on makeup, whenever we used to go out. But applying make-up was essential for me to hide the spots on my face. Then my sister suggested me this cream for my dark spots issue. I have been using it ever since then and feel happy to be spot free, that too without make-up. ?

  • I had this issue of blemished due to hormonal changes after my first child. I tried a hell lot of product for it but always landed up at the same situation with zero results. But this cream proved to be a savior for me. I just love my facial skin now!
