Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skincare regimen I love Nars. I tend to mix up my beauty routine but always end up coming back to Nars. Known for their makeup but I LOVE their skincare regimen.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broken quickly... I love this product and all things NARS, but the pump part of this serum broke off immediately. It was never dropped and it was well wrapped when shipped to me. I was able to salvage maybe half of the bottle but for the money, it should not break into pieces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE WINNER AND STILL CHAMPION! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have tried so many serums, it's ridiculous. Then I was introuced to the Optimal Brightening and my life has changed forever. This is an amazing product and does exactly what it is supposed to do. I love that there is no heavy scent or that the product itself is not heavy..just smooth with great results...It's my forever go-to!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Immediate brightening I was expecting more of a serum texture and was surprised by how thick it is - I need 3-4 pumps to cover my face. Mostly use it in the morning under makeup because of the sparkles feels weird to use overnight. My sensitive allergic skin loves this product and I will purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product - really does brighten spots I use Optimal Brightening Concentrate for years - loved it. My dermatologist recommended a tinted moisurizer with SPF, so I could cut down to 1 product and save $. HOWEVER, an sun/age spot on my face, that used to be covered by Nars tinted moisturizer when I used the Optimal Brightening, has darkened and needs concealer and full blown moisturizer. Am trying to go back to the Optimal Brightening, but nobody has it in stock. I just which there wasn't so much wasted materials in the packaging, bottle and cap (and occasionally get a bad pump, but just replace with the one from the bottle it is replacing).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does nothing I purchased this product a few months ago, the girl demo-ed the product on made due to the lighting in the shop made me believe it was amazing. Since tried the product at home for several weeks and it does nothing. Don't not purchase this
