Only thing I can say after using is “I LOVE IT”.
It does work on dark spots & makes my skin look & feel better. After applying it  does not give an oily look to my skin. However it takes a bit of time to get absorbed & during that time my skin looks a bit shiny. Well this goes within few seconds leaving my skin look brighter, soft & supple.
