It works

By Hime

from los angles

Comments about Garnier SkinActive Clearly Brighter Dark Spot Corrector:

It works but it will not work overnight it is not a bleach; I saw a difference within a week. Generally you must exfoliate and wear a sunscreen to keep your skin looking the best it can.

    I use this product twice daily. I've used it for a week now and so far its doing what's promised on the box. I've noticed lightning of places with newer freckles from tannin2. I have sensitive skin and its not irritating at all. It actually softens the skin. I love it and would highly reccomend it to anyone!

    Holy grail for uneven skin & redness

    By Andylynn

    from Duluth, MN, United States

    Comments about Garnier SkinActive Clearly Brighter Dark Spot Corrector:

    This works! It cleared up my redness from acne blemishes, didn't burn like others I've used it was super relaxing & calming. It drastically evened out my skin tone in just two uses. I love how it makes my skin feel soft too. Great product! I'm buying more before this sells out.

      I have oily acne prone skin and I use every morning and night for about 3 months( still have some left) its really light weight and didn't leave my skin irritated or oily. if you're patient and consistent you will start to see a difference. I still have areas I want clear but I can tell it did help. I Probably will try a different one just to see if I can get better or faster results but if not would purchase again.

        Jury is still out on this product, but it appears to be working after only a week. I plan to continue using the entire tube to see if it really works as advertised. If so, it'll become a staple in my daily make-up routine. It's reasonably priced too.

          • Q:

            Hi, I'm under the age of 18 and have very severe sun spots at such a young age. I am actually really concerned about them because they only increase in numbers! Will this product work for me? Also, I also lack a lot in drinking water so does that factor affect the amount of brown spots I have? Thank you!

              A:

              Hi there! The amount of brown spots can range from many environmental factors. For more information, we suggest you reach out to your doctor.

              Our Clearly Brighter Dark Spot Corrector reduces the look of years of sun damage and will help brighten skin.This fast absorbing, non-sticky formula is designed with our unique complex of Antioxidant Vitamin C & E, Pine Bark Essence and gentle exfoliating Lipo-Hydroxyl Acid (LHA). It promotes surface cell turnover to reveal more radiant, younger-looking skin with a reduced appearance of dark spots. If you have sun spots, we recommend you to take a look at our Clearly Brighter Anti-Sun Damage Daily Moisturizer SPF 30. Make sure you are wearing sunscreen. We hope this helps!

            • Brand Expert

              A:

              Hi Debbie! Thanks for reaching out to us. Our Clearly Brighter Dark Spot Corrector is not specifically an eye product. You can apply this onto your face and neck. This product is also targeted to reduce the look of years of sun damage and brighten skin. In 2 weeks, a visible "new skin" effect as the look of dark spots, age spots and discoloration is visibly reduced. If you are looking for something to help with dark circles, we suggest to try a different product in our line meant for eye care. We hope this helps!

              Hi Callie! We have not tested the Dark Spot Corrector to be used on anywhere other than the face. We do believe that this product will help with reducing the look of years of sun damage. It promotes surface cell turnover to reveal more radiant, younger-looking skin with a reduced appearance of dark spots. We hope this information is helpful!

              The Clearly Brighter Dark Spot Corrector reduces the look of dark spots, age spots and discoloration in few short weeks. This product re-surfaces skin and helps reduce the look of years of visible sun damage.
              Since UV (sun) exposure causes the appearance of dark spots on the skin, be sure to wear a sunscreen daily to keep new dark spots from forming. Deep and old discolorations may take longer to fade than newer discolorations.

            • Brand Expert

              A:

              For best results with the Clearly Brighter Dark Spot Corrector apply to clean skin. Smooth a dime size amount evenly until absorbed, ensuring all dark spots and uneven tone are fully covered. To keep additional dark spots from forming, be sure to use a sunscreen daily, like on of the Clearly Brighter Daily Moisturizer with sunscreen.
              If you only have uneven skin tone in a few spots, you can limit your use of this product to those area. However, the unique formula for this product will also brighten and smooth all of the skin along with the treatment if dark spots.

            • Brand Expert

              A:

              The Clearly Brighter Dark Spot Corrector can be use along with other products, including makeup. Apply this product first to clean skin and allow it to absorb for 15 minutes. At this point the skin will be saturated with the key ingredients and you can layer anything over it without affecting the dark spot treatment. If your foundation doesn't have a sunscreen, consider using a separate sunscreen. The UV rays cause the dark spots, so you don't want to encourage more to form.
