    Comments about Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector:

    Does a good job with general skin tone unevenness, but my dark spots don't seem much lighter and new ones are still forming. Might be better if applied directly to skin, but I use a redness/irritation relief serum under it.

        Comments about Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector:

        I've used this product before, so I thought I knew what to expect. This time I purchased the 1oz. size - BIG mistake. When you press the pump you get a drop that is barely the size of the head of a pin! It takes literally 9-12 pumps to get enough for my face. Finally I just unscrewed the entire top to access the product. What a waste, they spend all this money on packaging and never test whether or not it accurately dispenses what you need.

          Comments about Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector:

          I was given this product as a sample from Kylie, the girl who works at the Clinique counter at my Ulta (I'm a cashier), I told her I was looking for something to help heal my acne scars, & she reccomended this. It really does work! As soon as my sample was done I bought a bottle, there truly has been a difference in my skin and people are noticing! Amazing product, only
          Reason I'm only putting the 4 stars is because I've only been using this for a few weeks (almost a month) & I do use it with my Clinique acne skin regimine, so I'm hoping it will continue to work and not break me out

              I used this twice a day for 3 months and now I use it once a day. I had terrible Cystic acne that came on in my 30s and caused some bad scars on my jaw line. This stuff made the scars all but a distant memory.

              Comments about Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector:

              It was recommended to me by a Clinique Assistant cos I have really bad skin during that time. Dark spots in my face are noticeable that I get so desperate to find a good product. I'm actually hesitant to buy this cos of the price. So I'm using it for about two months now, and I didn't notice any improvement on my face. I should've just returned it. Not worth the price.

                  I use Clinique everything - foundation, mascara, lipstick, skincare and absolutely love their products. However this is one product I wouldn't recommend. I tried using it 6 months with no luck. So I tried Murad's Age Spot Remover and Lightening Serum ($15 trial size) and noticed results in 3 days! It's noticeably reducing the age spots on my face and I couldn't be happier. The active ingredient in Murad (hydroquinone) is what dermatologists prescribe to eliminate dark spots so it's nice to have an over the counter product that works while eliminating visits to a specialist. Sorry Clinique but your product was a waste of my money.

                    I bought this for my post acne scars. This serum is very light and does makes your skin soft and even toned. I have been applying this for almost 6 weeks now. I don't see major difference in my acne scars but it has definitely helped with making my skin even, smooth and free to white heads! Also this one of very few skin serum that has not acted as a catalyst for my breakouts.

                      Haven't had the product long enough to tell yet if it's going to work as described. I do like that it's very light weight and doesn't make my skin break out, make me sweat as sime products will or feel greasy.
