      It's my current favorite to use daily. I have awkward dry skin in some areas and oily in others. It moisturizes without being greasy or heavy in those areas and still gives what it needs to the dry.

              I really did like this product; I got it as a skincare sample in one of my previous shipments. I used this for a couple days, looking for a lighter weight moisturizer, however, this product caused my skin to have a reaction/breakout after a couple days of use. The only other thing I have had a skin reaction to is Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunscreen; so, fair warning, if that caused a reaction, this might also give you a reaction/breakout. It broke my heart, because I really do like this product as a whole.

                  I have been using this product as my daily morning moisturizer. It really helps my skin to not feel dry and also gives me a little bit of a glow. I love it because I don't like to wear makeup every day. With this moisturizer and a little bit of mascara, I am good to go!

                  I got a large sample size of this for free, and I actually really like it and plan on purchasing the full size. This is scented but it hasn't broken me out so I am cool with it. It just feels really nice and absorbs very quickly into the skin without a greasy film.

                    I purchased this product after trying the sample. I really enjoyed that my face felt moisturized yet did not look or feel greasy. I can't speak to UV protection but since I begin using, I've had more even skin tone.

                    I am 68 years old and never had any compliments on my skin (as a teenager, I had acne). I have been using this Garnier product for several months and have been told that my skin is "luminous". Great product, highly recommend.

                        A:

                        For best results fading dark spots and uneven skintone using products both AM and PM and a sunscreen are needed. For AM we recommend applying the Clearly Brighter Dark Spot Corrector to clean skin. Follow after 15 minutes with either makeup that has an SPF or the Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer SPF 15. For PM use the same Clearly Brighter Dark Spot Overnight Leave On Peel.
                        The Dark Spot Corrector and Dark Spot Peel are essential to fading the discoloration and dark spots, however an sunscreen must also be used daily to prevent new dark discolorations from forming.

                        The Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 is a great product to use in the AM to help reduce the appearance of dark spots like age spots. For a more intensive dark spot treatment use the Clearly Brighter Overnight Leave-On Peel in the PM as well. And be sure to use a sunscreen daily to keep new dark spots from forming.
