Before and After Using Good Molecule’s Discoloration Correcting Serum for 30 Days

Do you ever patiently wait for a blemish to disappear only for it to leave behind a mark that lingers for weeks, even months, after? Every time I get a breakout—even if I don’t pick at it—it always leaves its mark.

What causes hyperpigmentation?

Unfortunately, certain skin types and tones are naturally more prone to post-acne hyperpigmentation and redness, especially those with melanin. Since I’m South Asian with a medium complexion, that checks out. While we can’t do much to prevent hyperpigmentation, there are solutions to speed up the fading process.

Hyperpigmentation treatments

You can invest in salon treatments, like microdermabrasion or chemical peels, or opt for a more manageable—and budget-friendly—at-home routine to get the job done. Because I frequently deal with hyperpigmentation, I searched for the easiest and most convenient solution—adding a serum to my existing skincare routine. WIth Good Molecule’s affordable price tag, and recent reformulation, I wanted to see if it lived up to its claims (and hype!).


The Good Molecules Discoloration Correcting Serum formula

Good Molecules credits the cult-favorite serum’s effectiveness to two key ingredients: 3% TeraCeutic TXVector™—to help fade hyperpigmentation—and 4% niacinamide that works to improve the appearance of uneven skin tone, texture, dullness, and pores. Together, they’re believed to target existing dark spots and prevent future hyperpigmentation before it even occurs.

After sifting through endless five-star reviews, I added it to my AM skincare routine for a month hoping for noticeable results.

Good Molecules Discoloration Correcting Serum review

I kicked off the 30 days by applying a few drops all over my face to clean, toned skin and followed with moisturizer and sunscreen—yes, every. single. morning. I found the serum to be gentle yet effective. Though my skin can be sensitive, I didn’t experience any tingling or irritation, so I didn’t hesitate to apply it near existing blemishes or breakouts. Although it has a thicker texture, it feels super lightweight on contact. My skin drank it right up, so I found it easy to layer with other serums, as needed. Plus, there’s no heavy scent or fragrance.


Good Molecules Discoloration Correcting Serum before and after

Don’t expect any kind of sorcery—as with most skincare products, I didn’t wake up to a magical overnight transformation. Rather, I noticed my hyperpigmentation slightly started fading after about a week or so. Here’s the 30 days before and after.

The final verdict

The key to Good Molecule’s Discoloration Serum is consistency. After a month of regular use and noticeable results (!), I’m sold. I plan to continue using the serum daily to help fade any new hyperpigmentation and even my overall complexion. And, I’ll always have a bottle on-hand in case any hyperpigmentation pops up—it’s only a matter of time.
