When it comes to attaining your best skin, small acts matter, which is why the Brightening segment is so popular among skincare users.

Brightening products help reduce pigmentation—whatever their causes were; sun exposure, ageing, or post-acne marks—revealing a clearer, even complexion. Ingredients like Alpha Hydroxy Acid, Glycolic Acid and certain vitamins work their way onto the skin to gradually clear dark spots on your face. And given the advanced technology in skincare, a combination of ingredients are brought together in a product to brighten the skin while also retaining its integrity, so it doesn’t lose moisture or its strength in the process.

Here are some of the best Brightening items in the KENS Apothecary stable.


Start your routine on a gentle note with Grown Alchemist Enzyme Exfoliant, a gentle and granule-free formula to even out skin tone and smooth fine lines and wrinkles.

This complex blend of fruit extracts noticeably hydrates facial skin, while gently dissolving dead skin cell bonds, resulting in enhanced cell renewal.

Nuxe Micro exfoliating purifying gel is packed with natural blue micro-beads, to deeply cleanse without drying the skin. With daily use, this purifying gel removes excess sebum and scrubs away irregularities for cleaner, fresher and more luminous skin.

For a fuss-free facial buff, Malin+Goetz Resurfacing Glycolic Pads has 10 per cent glycolic acid exfoliating pads to smooth skin and minimize appearance of pores.

It’s an at-home chemical peel with physician-grade glycolic acid to help improve the appearance of pores, clarity and texture. Just patch test before first use and build up frequency over time to allow skin to acclimatize.


Give your skin a perfect cleanse with Eve Lom Foaming Cream Cleanser. This hydrating, enzyme-infused foaming cleanser uses water to activate an innovative cream-to-foam lather which delicately wipes away make-up and impurities without drying skin or clogging pores.

Effortless, efficacious, and safe for daily use, skin is left feeling soft, hydrated, and refreshed with a more radiant-looking glow.

This elegant cleanser is softly fragranced with aromatic natural oils and soothes dry skin and nourishes to promote overall skin health.


A toner helps prep skin for other products and Ren Ready Steady Glow AHA Tonic does a great job at bringing energy back to dull or tired-looking skin. Lactic Acid effectively exfoliates the skin surface, breaking up dead cells and replacing moisture, while Salicin from willow bark helps pores appear tighter and skin appear smoother every day.

Caudalie Vinoperfect Concentrated Brightening Glycolic Essence is the brand’s first step in the Vinoperfect anti-dark spot routine. Effective, yet ultra-gentle on the skin, it eliminates dead cells that cause dullness and revives the skin’s natural radiance.


The eyes are windows to the soul, but the sensitive nature of the skin surrounding them can be tricky to look after. 

Omorovicza Illumineye C is powered by vitamins C, A & E to brighten and hydrate the eye contour. This rich and velvety eye cream helps diminish dark circles and puffiness and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Just warm Illumineye C between fingers and dab along the eye area for a visibly brighter complexion.

Caudalie Vinergetic C+ Brightening Eye Cream is for puffiness and dark circles, with caffeine, olive squalene and niacinamides in a soft cream texture. It reduces dark circles, smooths and moisturises the eye contour. The eyes appear refreshed and energized with continuous use.
