Underarm pigmentation is a real thing. I experienced it during my pregnancy. The pigmentation surfaced in first trimester and it darkened as the pregnancy progressed. I couldn’t do much about it even after so many years due to hectic schedule. While I did pay attention to my facial skin and body care, underarm was one of the most neglected part. Once in a while I did try DIY under arm detox mask. But I never thought of using a cream or something to tackle the pigmentation. Let’s see if Dot & Key Underarm Colour Correction Serum helped me or not?
Brand Claims and Ingredients
The product is housed in a cute pink packaging. The outer cardboard box is a keeper for me. The underarm serum packaging is quite compact. However the cap comes off quickly so keep in mind while packing with other products in your handbag or skincare bag.
Coming to the consistency and texture of the product, it has a serum consistency and has soft, gooey texture. The serum gets absorbed easily in the underarm area. However it has a strong artificial fragrance, which really bothers me. Especially if you use it during the day and once you start sweating, the fragrance of serum along with the sweat gives a bad odour sort of fragrance.
Coming to the efficiency of the serum, it has lightened my underarm pigmentation to a lot of extent. And I have been using it day and night since 3 weeks. I sometimes even skip using it during the day to avoid the fragrance of serum mixing with sweat odour. Still the serum has shown significant amount of lightening in the underarm pigmentation. The serum gets absorbed immediately and doesn’t leave any sticky or oily residue. It has also reduced the thickening of the arm folds, very little though. Overall am satisfied with the Serum in case of lightening the underarm pigmentation.

Dot & Key Underarm Colour Correction Serum is a good option to tackle underarm pigmentation, especially if you are a busy person and don’t have time to use DIY or natural remedies. The serum showed significant reduction in pigmentation within 2 weeks for me. Plus am not a person who sweats too much. The ease of use, non greasy, non oily feeling makes it a winner in terms of usage. However the artificial fragrance of Dot & Key Underarm Colour Correction Serum is something which I don’t like. If you are looking to reduce underarm pigmentation the easy way pick it up. Also ease of use comes with a price.
