          I want to love this so badly because the smell is wonderful but it burns my entire face for hours (I put on before work & couldn't wash it off) and leaves it red and puffy.

              Comments about Garnier SkinActive Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer SPF 15:

              For some reason, when I started using this, my skin started breaking out and gaining texture. Before I started using this, my skin was smooth and clear. It also was very itchy when applied so I don't know if I'm just allergic or sensitive to any of the ingredients in this product or what was happening. I continued trying it to give a quality review on it and my skin started to develop even more texture if possible. After stopping use and using a different moisturiser, it started to go back to how it was, although it has taken several months. It is not yet back to my old skin but I was very disappointed. I have never experienced any sensitivity to any time of skin care products which made me so skeptical and made me continue using it.

              This product goes on smooth, smells great, absorbs quickly, and moisturizes well. I have combination skin and while my dry areas have been tamed by this product my oily T-zone became even more oily! This just doesn't work for me but maybe would be great with someone with just dry skin.

                I received a sample with a purchase I made from ULTA. I love it! It made my skin smooth and added a nice glow. Will most definitely be going to purchase a full size. It's amazing and works well under makeup which is a plus for me!!

                        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.

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.
