Honest reviews


Works well, not 100%

I’ve tried Proactiv dark spot corrector, and this worked better. It took about three weeks, but the spots I had from acne have faded. They are 80% gone. I don’t think the last 20% is going away. My skin looks so much better I would buy this product again.

Seems to work well

This product helps diminish my acne scars. It took about a month to really see results. Id say another bottle of this stuff and ill be good. One bottle lasts about 2 months if you just use it at night.

More like 3.5 stars…

I actually like this product a lot, but it would be misleading to other shoppers if I gave it 5 stars.I have really sensitive skin. I’m allergic to 80% of the most common/popular products – not just skincare & cosmetic products, but also laundry detergents, dryer sheets, dish soap, body creams, shampoos, hair styling products, air fresheners & so on. I almost never try anything new b/c if I end up being allergic my eyes swell shut and I get full on bumpy hives all over. I had good luck with their eyeshadows since I was a teenager so I crossed my fingers and decided to try this product. Big leap of faith!So I’ll tell you why I got brave….My skin is a wreck. Tons of scars, active adult acne, large pores and the whole deal. I had been using the Clinque serum for dark spots since it first came out & I really loved it…but I got so sick of paying $60 for an ounce! So expensive! So I was in the market for a less expensive alternative. This was the only other dark spot product made by a company that had been friendly with my skin in the past.It is fragrance free, as in, fragrance hasn’t been artificially added. It does smell. it just smells like one of those fancy ingredients I guess. the smell is fine, it fades right away and it’s not an unpleasant odor at all. It feels really nice on my skin. It’s a great moisturizer. I have all sorts of different acne products and they all tend to dry my skin. I keep this on my night stand and I put it on my face when I get in bed at night. It really helps counter act all the moisture loss that treating acne causes. It has never caused a reaction on my skin & it doesn’t sting if it gets on broken skin. It’s worth $19 just for that (to me).I am on my last few pumps of serum as we speak & unfortunately I have not seen a reduction in dark spots or skin brightness. But to be fair…my skin is more than a little damaged. I’m not certain it does what it claims to do, but it does enough for me.PS – the Clinique dark spot correcting serum is far superior, but way more expensive.

Awesome and not too expensive

I’ve been using this for 2 weeks and can all ready see two age spots on my face fading away and 1 on my chest. Great product at an excellent price

Does exactly what it says it will do.

This product has a very slight tint to it. It won’t replace you foundation or concealer, but it will brighten your skin. It goes on smoothly and has the feel of a moisturizer. For a 1.0 fluid ounce bottle, it lasts a long time. Well worth the money.

Gilda Westville, IL

Not so good.

Tried it and didn’t like it. It didn’t do as well as I expected. Not much difference for any of the other dark spot correctors. expensive for the amount you get too

Milagros North Bend, OH

Dark Spot Corrector

I have very sensitive skin. Many products will make me break out. This one did not. It was also lightweight and absorbed quickly. It smells like sea weed. It did even out my skin a little but it did not erase any spots I already had. You will need to wear a moisturizer over it if you have dry skin. It was mediocre and I will not buy it again.

unbelieveable!!! I can see this working the first week…the only problem is there is only one ounce and it’s a little pricey. I am in my mid 60’s and just the last 2 years started getting brown spots on my arms and hands. I use a sunscreen also during the day.

Kris Comanche, TX

Didn’t work

I had such high hopes, but nothing. I wanted it to work – but no – So my advice is don’t waste your money and just get a cover cream.

Faye Graham, KY


I am disappointed with this product I bought it for my mother and it did NOT work i WASTED my money

Carla Nashua, MT

I think ithelps

I bought this after reading the reviews. It seems to help my skin texture and to smooth out some of the acne marks I’ve had. I think it also has helped with the dark aging spots. I’m going to buy another bottle and see if it helps more.

Lourdes New Hampton, IA

it didn’t work for me

I ordered it because of the good reviews it has. I’ve been applying it to all my face, twice daily for 10 weeks and the sun spots on my cheeks look the same, and the overall tone as well. It has been a bit disappointing but I assume it doesn’t works the same for everybody.

the skin corrector works really well. like all products, just not over use them and the results will surprise you.
