Piment Doux Serum Reviews – What no one is tell you

The original piment doux serum helps to remove dark spots, clear pimples and circles from the skin. It cleanses your skin and leaves it to become smooth, fresh, clear, even tone, radiant and beautiful.

Because the serum contains very active ingredients, it is not recommended to use it in direct sunlight because it is quite potent and might cause irreparable damage to your skin if it comes into contact with sunlight, fire, or steam.

During a discussion with a customer on Amazon, we noted that the lotion works under 1-3 weeks of proper usage. Although it peeled her skin first, the end result was excellent.

She claimed that it took her years to find something for her knuckles, and that her hands now have a uniformed hue. It spreads and absorbs easily when applied to the skin.

Speaking about the scent: Piment doux serum scents fruity; it doesn’t smell offensive or overpowering. It is originally yellowish in color, if you had yours that other than yellow, then that’s the fake one.

This serum will fully eliminate any sort of hyperpigmentation on your skin and will absorb quickly. It has a strong and positive influence on the body.

Does piment doux serum contain hydroquinone? 

I’ve done my research and the truth is, piment doux serum contains 6% hydroquinone which is not stated on the label, of course I’m furious about that.

According to my study from healthine, the cream uses hydroquinone to slightly bleach or lighten the skin. This same hydroquinone is the cause of the peeling effects of the serum.

Although Hydroquinone is not harmful to the skin, excessive use is not just advised.

Hydroquinone is used to lighten the dark patches of skin which is also called hyperpigmentation, liver spots, age spots, or freckles.
