Review: Vita-K® Professional Age Spots

Yesterday’s post discussed a product I received from Klout* and this is the second of the three perks I received. There’s a lot going on with this: peptides, kojic acid, licorice extract.  It could work, but in order to find out, you’ll have to purchase at least 2 bottles. If you’re not using hydroquinone (and that’s a concern, too), it can take 4-6 months to see optimal results with an over-the-counter product. Shave off a month of you’re having office procedures dome. This professional line is designed for dry, mature skin, so those with acne issues may want to avoid this.

Key Ingredients:                      
Pro Vita-K Complex™ –  combines the remarkable proven benefits of Vitamin K with a unique Amino Acid/Polypeptide Complex proven to significantly improve tone and elasticity, and dramatically reduces the appearance of problem skin conditions with the first application. (Their verbiage, not mine. Highly doubtful.)
Matrixyl® 3000– consists of a combination of two pentapeptides; Palmitoyl Oligopeptide and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide – 7. Known to promote collagen production while stimulating fibroblast cells in the skin, enabling them to significantly reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Vitamin K 
Licorice Extract
Aloe 
Vitamin E
Cocoa Butter (SO…are you for anti-aging or skin lightener?)
