I tried to rid my skin of pigmentation, and here’s what happened

Like many women of a certain age, I too have unfortunately fallen victim to the presence of pigmentation on my face. Having taken up residence during my pregnancies, I’ve spent the past seven years trialling all manner of wonder creams and treatments to rid my face of these unsightly and very ageing dark blotches, some have worked miracles, others have not fulfilled their promise of hope in a jar. So when I came across a product that actually delivered on what it said it was going to do, I felt that it was definitely worth sharing.

I was first introduced to Emma Lewisham’s Skin Reset Serum during the first of our many lockdowns in 2020. At the time, with life so unpredictable and grim, I decided to embark on a self-care regime in the hope of brightening my own outlook. I committed to trialling one new product consistently (which is usually my biggest area of failure) and to focus on a specific ailment or issue, ultimately hoping to see an actual result or some kind of transformation. 

After choosing pigmentation as my first challenge I began using Emma Lewisham’s Skin Reset Serum on the recommendation of a friend. This serum has achieved cult status for its ability to seriously diminish pigmentation. What’s more, the entire Emma Lewisham range of skincare is 100 per cent clean, natural and non-toxic, which is no mean feat in the somewhat unscrupulous world of skincare, where bold, unsubstantiated claims, along with greenwashing, have become a mainstay of the industry. Lewisham is a vanguard for a totally transparent solution to skincare that sets a new standard.

Before & After

Actual before (left) and after (right) 4 weeks of product use

Over the course of four weeks, I applied the Skin Reset serum to my face, both morning and evening, after cleansing and before applying moisturiser and sunscreen. So what of its efficacy you ask? Well Denizens, to say that I am impressed with the results would be an understatement. I am so blown away by the diminishing of my pigmentation, that I am 100 per cent committed to continuing to use this product with the hope of declaring my face pigmentation-free in the not-too-distant future. After doing more research on why this serum has achieved what no others have done before, I learned that Lewisham’s commitment to ensuring both the quality and quantity of effective ingredients, results in a product that achieves far greater results, far sooner, than any competitive serum.

So if pigmentation is your woe, and you also care about the quality and safety of what you put on your skin, I suggest you support the gallant efforts of a stellar New Zealander who’s taking on the hefty world of beauty and winning.
