Hello my friends!
I’m back with another review for you today, one I’m quite excited about! You may be familiar with the brand ESK, I’ve previously trialled one of their products (which I loved BTW!). You can check that post out here. If you’re unfamilar with the brand, they are Evidence Skincare, all their products are backed by science and they work (based on personal experience and from reading reviews). If you read my review of the Ultimate A, you’ll know that I loved the product and it worked so well for me. I definitely want to purchase a full size Ultimate A, but I’ll wait until I finish my current products first.
Now enough about that, and onto their Enlighten Serum, which utilises two actives – 4-n-butylresorcinol and niacinamide. The Enlighten Serum helps brighten the skin tone and manages hyperpigmentation. I’ve suffered cystic acne in my teens and that left me with scarring, redness and of course, hyperpigmentation. I have some on my cheeks, which is not entirely noticable, as it’s not very pigmented, but I still notice it.
A tyrosinase inhibitor (4-n-butylresorcinol) and antioxidant (Niacinamide) based cream to lighten and brighten skin appearance and provide a more even skin tone. Niacinamide provides visible improvements within 3 weeks. 4-n-butylresorcinol significantly improves outcomes after 2 – 3 months of continuous use.
Apply 2 – 3 pumps to face (and other areas of hyperpigmentation) following C Serum Lite in the morning
For enhanced results, use also in the evening following Smooth Serum
Note: for best results, use sunscreen during daylight hours

It is a cream texture, and I only need 3 pumps for my face. Niacinamide works great for my skin and this was no different! I’ve been using it for about…3 weeks and I have seen a difference in my complexion – it’s so much brighter and radiant. I wish I took progress pictures before using it but my skin was going through a tough period so I didn’t tend to document my skin progress. I will do an update on my IG story once I’ve finished the product! Overall, super impressed, ESK have done it again with their great products and I look forward to finishing the product and to seeing my results!
Have you tried any ESK products before?
See you next week for another blog post!
