Brightenex Review - Will It Work For You? Let's Find Out!

The vast majority of beauty treatment products play heavily into the insecurities of its consumers, shoppers who would do anything for just about any price to maintain their perfect skin, younger faces, and vibrant appearances. Of these product, skin brighteners have become one of, if not the most, popular products in recent years. And while it may take several brands to find the one that is right for you, it's important to not lose faith in the results you desire. Do you think it best to know more about these products before deciding on just one?

You’re right!

So, the question is, Will Brightenex Skin Brightening Formula really help to remove your visible blemishes, dark spots, and uneven complexion? Or will you be left wanting more?


Brightenex is a topical cream marketed as a powerful tool to combat skin discoloration through the use of vitamins A, C, and E, as well as antioxidants, without the use of caustic bleaches. Brightenex avoids the use of hydroquinone because of its clinically proven ability to irritate, redden, and damage skin with moderate to severe negative side effects. Developed and distributed by ZO Skin Health, Inc, Brightenex is a largely unknown product that promises to scientifically heal damage to your skin caused by the sun. From their main website consumers can research the full ingredients that are found in Brightenex, as well as read the function of the product in detail. The price of Brightenex, of course, varies depending on which vendor you choose to purchase from. The common price for this product ranges from $99 to $110 for a single container.

What's the Word On The Street, Then?

Thumbs Up

One of the most positive aspects of Brightenex is the fact that it employs vitamins A, C, and E in its formulation, as well as antioxidants. Brightenex also offers anyone who visits their main website the full list of ingredients found in their product. In addition to reducing dark spots and blemishes, Brightenex is reportedly capable of visually lessening acne scars.

Thumbs Down

In spite of a multitude of information found on their main website, we could not locate any kind of money back guarantee for Brightenex. There was also no evidence that this product had ever undergone any form of scientific or clinical testing. Third party review sources have reported several side effects from using Brightenex, in spite of its not using ingredients like hydroquinone. These side effects range from stinging discomfort, scabbing on applied areas, to peeling of the skin. Another large drawback is that you can only receive Brightenex through a doctor's prescription. Even then its price is not justified at a whopping $110.

You Have To Know What You're Putting On Your Body

The ingredients in this product can be found to the right.

Brightenex is an appealing and strong choice when viewed on paper, given its strong ingredients list, which is offered direct from its main website, to its decision to not use the often times controversial hydroquinone. Beyond its reported ability to reduce the appearance of skin blemishes, uneven complexion, and skin discoloration, many people have said that Brightenex is able to remove acne scars. And while all of those things are good, and exactly what we, as consumers, desire in a product, that is not the end of this story. The lack of a money back guarantee leads us to believe that Brightenex results are hit or miss, and its manufacturer has little to no confidence regarding its strength. The fact that there are many claims of negative side effects when using this product, we're weary of recommending it to anyone with potentially sensitive skin. When all is said and done, it's the price of Brightenex that leads us to recommend you skip trying this one. At $110, your money is better spent elsewhere.
