Rated 5 out of 5 by skincare20 from Great product Lots of confusion about this product. This was my first institut esthederm sunscreen when I was late 20's and I had a big of pigmentation. It worked. Institut esthederm don't work with SPF numbers, in other countries you can only purchase this brand from beauty salons where they give you personalised advice. I don't think SpaceNK staff is on top of this brand specific USPs, having asked in several stores, I find myself knowing more than them...so understandable this product has mixed reviews as it's not explained properly. Photo regul- It tans but your pigmentation should not tan. Photo reverse. You have pigmentation and you want to minimise it. I personally went from photo regul to No sun when my pigmentation got worse- not due to sun exposure ( read my No sun review if you are interested). I can't comment on how effective this is but I just bought the tinted photo reverse and will be reviewing after summer. The brand have a great selection of products, you just have to find the one that suits your skin

Rated 2 out of 5 by BeautyStar from Disappointed.....did not work for me I have some mild sun related pigmentation on the upper part of my cheeks that I have been having laser for. Whilst I am meticulous about wearing SPF (at least 30) on my face, I wanted something to help avoid the pigmentation getting worse. I bought this on advice of staff at my local SPACENK store. I was interested to understand how it 'works' but like others could find little information as to the SPF in the product. I followed the instructions meticulously but did not notice any improvement. The cream is a pale yellow colour and lightly fragrance but feels very grasy on my skin and needs a lot of rubbing in. If I tried to combine with make up product seemed to 'slip'. Disappointed but could not get this to work for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mimibelle from What is this product anyway? I have been using this product. I don't know if it is working. It seems the same as any other SPF. What I don't like is how weird and secretive this brand is. Trying to find out anything about it's products impossible. Their website is a joke. What SPF is this? How does it 'magically' allow skin to tan but stop the darker spots getting darker whilst allowing the rest of the skin to tan to 'catch up' with the hyper pigmented patches? How is this even possible? The brand also has 'photo reverse' which is supposed to reduce pigmentation. How? Which one is better for hyper pigmentation? Why is it nigh on impossible to get a half intelligent answer to any of this?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tereza from Best sunscreen product for sensitive skin I never ever write reviews, which is a shame I know and will get better :) But this product truly deserves it. I have fair dry skin that tends to be super sensitive. Every spa product I have used on my face broke me out. But not this one. It is truly one of a kind and if you are in the market for a perfect sunscreen, give this one a go! You will not regret it :) P.S. the only little downside is the "old granny" scent:)

Rated 4 out of 5 by estherv from Good but lacks info Hello everyone! I have melasma as many of you looking at this product might also have. I got a sample of this product and used it once. Not greasy, no fragrance, no white cast. That said, I’ve been looking everywhere for more info as of SPF on this product and simply can’t find it! This leaves me a bit insecure as I am not sure if it’s a 15, 30, or 50. Also there’s another product of the same brand for pigmentation (also doesn’t say spf) so it’s confusing. I use hats and tend to keep my face under shade so it worked fine for one day but I am still insecure. Does anyone knows how much protection does it have?
