Illuminatural 6i Skin Lightener Review and Results
Note: This is my review, Click Here to visit the official site for Illuminatural 6i
You are here because something’s bothering you about your skin – those pesky dark spots!
Freckles, liver spots, sun spots, pregnancy mask, birthmarks, acne scars, melasma, you name it.
Most of us unfortunately have some dark spots on our face, shoulders or chest, or other parts of our bodies and we want them gone!
We all want that ivory, flawless, air-brushed look to our skin which brings us confidence in ourselves. So why do those annoying dark spots form and what can you do about it?
Some dark spots come with age, some come from sun damage, some come from taking the pill or from hormonal changes during pregnancy, some are from lingering from bouts with acne when we were younger.
Whatever the reason, the treatment is the same and you can drastically reduce those dreaded spots with a good topical treatment!
My #1 choice for skin lighteners is Illuminatural 6i and it’s made by Skinception – they make an entire line of wonderful skin care and I use many of their products on a regular basis.
This non-toxic formula does not contain any of the usual chemicals found in many competing products (such as hydroquinone), and is only a fraction of the price of laser surgery.
This advanced skin lightening formula produced noticeable results for me in about 4 weeks, and feels amazing on the skin.
How Does Illuminatural 6i Work?
The way Illuminatural 6i works is through a unique combination of clinically proven ingredients that interrupt the formation of the dark skin pigment melanin.
While this may sound complicated, it really isn’t. Let me explain…our skin replenishes itself every 28 days, shedding dead skin cells and reproducing new ones.
Hyper-pigmentation, the process of pigment producing skin cells called melanocytes producing too many too fast, is directly responsible for producing dark pigment in localized spots.
The result is embarrassing dark, blotchy spots which basically reform every 28 days, so to treat this you must change the way those dark skin cells group together and form, and stop them in their tracks!
Illuminatural 6i attacks the root of the problem by suppressing the formulation of tyrosinase, which is in direct correlation with skin pigmentation (melanin), so that over a period of 28 days, your dark pigmented cells slowly, naturally get sloughed off as your NEW, lighter skin cells rise to the surface.
This is also why skin lightening can take a few cycles to really achieve optimal results, so you need to be willing to commit to a routine of 2-3 months to get that flawless look we all want! Trust me, it’s so worth it!

My Results Using Illuminatural 6i
Having tried so many other skin lighteners before, I consider myself somewhat of an expert in this area.
For me, I specifically have problems with sun spots along my jaw line, neck, my chest, and shoulders, of course from all those hours baking in the sun playing beach volleyball and just growing up in Florida in general.
When I was in my 20’s, I had hyper-pigmentation due to birth control pills. I seriously looked like I had a mask on my entire face and I had no idea how to fix it! People asked me if my face was peeling all the time.
I assumed I would need laser surgery or something which I couldn’t afford, and I also didn’t realize that the sun was making it worse. Oh, to be 20 again…if I knew then what I know now, I would not even try getting a tan and I would pack on the sunscreen daily!
In my first trial of using Illuminatural 6i, I used it for about 8 weeks, and my results were very good! I like the way this product feels on my skin, it has a nice texture to it and feels smooth under my makeup.
It has a thin consistency and feels more like a serum than a cream. Since the molecules of a serum are smaller than a cream, it’s able to penetrate more deeply rendering the ingredients more effective.
You’ll also notice that it has a tint to it, however it does not leave any color on your skin, it completely rubs in and disappears and you can apply your moisturizer and makeup right over it for a flawless look everyday!
Update – Using Illuminatural 6i for my Wedding Day Skin
I had a second and much more thorough trial with Illuminatural 6i prior to my wedding in June 2014 and I’m just finally getting around to updating you with my results.
Prior to my wedding, I committed to a FOUR month skin lightening routine and completely stayed out the sun.
The last thing I wanted was strap marks or a tan! I didn’t even get a spray tan for my wedding day – I wanted that flawless, airbrushed look and I used Illuminatural 6i on my face, shoulders, upper back, and chest and had great results!
Any lingering dark patches on my face pretty much disappeared completely, and it significantly reduced the freckles on my shoulders and chest which were my main problem areas for my wedding.
They didn’t disappear completely but they were light enough that I felt very confident in my strapless dress. Honestly, on my wedding day, at 42 years old, I felt more confident in my skin that I think I ever have – it was an amazing day!
The nice thing about this product is that you only need to put it on your problem spots, and not all over your face.
However, you can certainly apply it to your entire face and chest if you’d like an all over, more ivory look to your skin tone.
The importance of using an SPF with Illuminatural 6i
Ladies, please read this! One very important tip that I want to mention is that in order to get the best results you need use Illuminatural 6i with an SPF sunscreen.
I wear at least SPF 30 daily if I know I’m leaving the house (even if I’ll just be walking through a parking lot) which I apply on top of Illimunatural 6i, or an SPF 50 if I know I will be in the sun for any prolonged period of time.
The key is to lighten, and then protect the new skin with a sunscreen, and continue to protect – forever!
Yes, sunscreen needs to be a part of your eternal beauty routine if you wish to keep the youthful look that you’re investing your time and money into. But it’s worth it!

I really enjoyed your video. I purchased this product and today I used for the first time. I am 54.5 African American woman with combination skin and my problem is pores on my cheeks and nose. I applied this product with a small makeup brush and applied a thin layer and I was very surprised that after 18 mins it peeled off very easily. I have facial hair and it did not hurt as I peeled it off. I rinsed my face and applied my moisturizer and my skin looked amazing. My pores were gone and the nose area looked great. I will continue to use this maybe twice a week. Thanks for your video.
Illuminatural 6i my results
I have dark spots on my cheeks and this product is working for me. It has a pleasant feel and I put my makeup over it. I have used four weeks and seen a difference. My spots are fading. I also use spf over it as the sun will make them dark again if I'm not careful. Overall I am happy and excited that something is working. I did not want to see a Dr. or use hydroquinone because I've read that is poison.
I have a lot of freckles esp get darker when I am in the sun. I wanted to lighten them and this product works fast. Within two weeks it was a noticeable difference. I wear SPF 30 over it to prevent the sun from darkening them again. It feels like a nice cream and I wear morning and night.

was this a sponsored review?
Hi Max, no, I’m not paid to write reviews. I am affiliated with certain products that I recommend, so I may receive a small commission depending on what you buy. However, I’m very picky and I only recommend products that I’ve used personally and had good results with. I don’t just advertise products that I don’t believe in and I recommend many, many products that I’m not affiliated with. Hope that helps. Rachel
i have a green birthmark on my face like mangolian birthmark…does this cream remove it completely or to what extent?
Hi Sangeeta, Illuminatural does claim that it fades birthmarks, but I can’t say with certainty it would help a magnolian birth mark. You could give it a try and they do offer a 90 day money back guarantee so if it doesn’t work, return it for a full refund. Rachel
Nice meeting u here in the blog
will the skin tone change again if we stop using the products……
Why can I get the products from retails shop
Can you please suggest a solution for darkness around the neck
Hi Anu, I always recommend using an spf of 30 or 50 especially while you’re using a skin lightening treatment such as Illuminatural 6i. They don’t sell this product in retail stores it’s online only through the Skinception Anti-aging store. If you stop using the Illuminatural and stop using an spf cream, then yes you could get dark spots again. If you use the Illuminatural and continue to use sunscreen to protect your lightening results, it’s less likely it would come back. Sun protection is key since the sun is usually what darkens the melanin. Rachel
Is it effective for freckles? Can we purchase it from amazon?
Hi Rose, Illuminatural 6i is great to lighten freckles or any other dark spots you have. It’s not sold on Amazon, but you can purchase it from the Skinception Anti-Aging Store. Good luck! It’s a great product. Rachel~WomensBlogTalk.com
Pls can this illuminatural 61 help to stop oily face and dark spot
Lovelyn, this is not a product to fight oiliness but it does work well to lighten dark spots. It is not an oily product however so it won’t make your skin feel more oily. You can just use a tiny bit just on your spots, you don’t need to use on your entire face only if you want to lighten all over. Hope this helps! Rachel~WomensBlogTalk
Hi, i need a cream that can reduce smile lines and make my face smooth i have been using skin success faded cream for sometime now . i don’t know if this kollagen will help my face.
Meg, thanks for your question. I noticed you posted this in an article on skin lightening. My best recommendation for smoothing face wrinkles is Lifecell. It fills in wrinkles works to give you an all over smooth appearance and it also fades dark spots and reduces redness. It’s my favorite, and it should help your smiles lines. A good second choice would be Kollagen Intensiv which is a bit more moisturizing if you have dry skin.
