After seeing many positive reviews on  H2O+ Water White Advanced Brightening Hydrator Lotion SPF 30 with marine brightening technology ,I bought this and been using this for more than 2 months and finally I finished this bottle today and so, thought of reviewing it.I have used H20+ marine calm rescue serum before,which is one of my favorite serums.

My View On the Product : I use this cream daily in the morning after cleansing and toning. This cream is of medium consistency and it takes some time to get absorbed completely.It has a mild citrus fragrance.Very little cream is enough for entire face.It tends to make face oily,if applied in excess quantity. Initially for 2-3 weeks,I did not see any visible difference and it  broke me out,then I thought to discontinue it,but  some how continued it,to my surprise,after 4 weeks it started showing results. I could see my skin becoming smoother,even and glowing. I have a mild hyper-pigmentation on my cheeks, after using this cream for 2 months continuously,I could see visible reduction in pigmentation and brightening of my face.Because of SPF 30 in it,I did not use any other sunscreen above it.It is pricey for the quantity,but it does what it claims. I am very much satisfied with the product.
