Since I'm older, I've got brown spots on my face from the bad old days in the sun. So I need a face cream with Vitamin C in order to fade those brown spots (plus some freckles that drive me wild). I use this cream at night and I love it. I can lay it on thick, but it's never greasy -- something that's really important to me. I've only had it about a month, but I think the brown spots are fading. I know this takes time. The other thing I love is that there's no weird chemical smell, which you often get with unscented creams. This one is truly unscented.
