PRIORI Brightening Facial Complex can be applied to a clean face, morning and night.

My Thoughts:
First of all the packaging, it's very handy, I love the using the pump to dispense the product, it has a transparent cap on top. I keep it at hand on my bedside table as it's part of my bedtime routine now.
So I've been using this at night before going to bed. After I remove my makeup and clean my face I apply this focusing on a few dark spots[melasma] I have above my cheekbones. The texture is soft and smooth and the consistency is thick like a cream, I use about one to two pumps to cover my face and a bit of my neck. The scent is average, I don't like it honestly speaking, I'd have preferred a more fruity or cosmetic smell. It dries up quickly and there's no slickness left on the skin but feels a bit heavy [ the you've applied something over your face feeling]. It makes my skin incredibly soft to the touch when I apply this.
When I wake up in the morning the first thing I notice is how bright and glow-y my skin looks. I look fresh upon waking up which is something I love about this product. About the 'evens out skin tone' part I haven't noticed any visible difference in my marks [melasma is the most difficult-to-cure pigmentation of the skin]. They're there like they used to be, I have used this for about 1.5 months so maybe it needs more time to achieve that. 
What I love about it is that various natural plant extracts are found in this Brightening Facial Complex along with Vitamin E. It takes away the dullness from my skin and provides a youthful luminosity.
Coming now to the cons if you go through the ingredient list above it really has no major ingredients, such as Kojic Acid, Hydroquinone, Licorice Extract, or Vitamin C, to assist with remedying sun damage. It contains a lot of the antioxidant, but no other ingredients that can combat other signs of aging as well like wrinkles or hyper pigmentation and age spots.
I would keep on using it for a month or two to see if it does eventually help to fade my marks and because I love the softness and brightening effect it imparts to my face and then would probably do an update for you guys!

Price and Availability:
This Brightening Facial Complex sells through online stores like SkinCareRX for around $81.
