      Comments about Garnier SkinActive Clearly Brighter Dark Spot Corrector:

      I have tried the previous version of this product before and did not see results, however when they came out with the new formula I decided to give it a try because I will try anything to get rid of my dark spots/acne scars. This product actually works! I have been using it morning and night under my moisturizer and I can honestly say my dark spots are fading. Finally! They are not completely gone yet so it's not an overnight product- nothing is- but it is doing work to help even out my skin tone.

        I apply the Dark Spot Corrector after cleansing and using my toner. I love that I can apply it all over my skin rather than only as a spot treatment. Leaves my skin soft and notice a slight smoothness to my skins texture. Have only been using for a week an a half and look forward to the results as time goes on with use.

        This stuff works!

        By AndreaV

        from North Arlington, NJ

        Comments about Garnier SkinActive Clearly Brighter Dark Spot Corrector:

        My best friend recommended this product to me and it really works! I started using it about 3 days ago and have noticed the dark patches on my cheeks caused by Melasma starting to fade. This is dramatic! After expensive chemical peels, microdermabrasion treatments and countless skin products, I can honestly say that none had such a dramatic effect!

          Comments about Garnier SkinActive Clearly Brighter Dark Spot Corrector:

          This product is amazing and does exactly what it promises it will do! It has a great light scent that does not irritate my acne prone/oily skin. I had a few post hyper pigmented spots left over from occasional pimples and this product really targeted those dark spots extremely well. I've only been using this product for a week now and all I can say is wow! What a positive difference I see in my skin. I use this product at night after cleansing and before putting on my regular moisturizer. I put my moisturizer on top of this product and I absolutely love it. I was very skeptical about using a drug store product. I usually use higher end products like Clinique, Mary Kay, or Este Lauder, but I am so glad I gave this product a shot. I will definitely continue to use and purchase this product!

          Better than others I've tried

          By Stanton

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Garnier SkinActive Clearly Brighter Dark Spot Corrector:

          I really like this in general, not a miracle cure but if you keep using it faithfully it works. It feels great (very light and not greasy at all), and helps keep my hyper-pigmentation at bay. Word of advice: DON'T use any generic version of Garnier's Clearly Brighter line you see in the drug store. If you can afford more expensive products, fine - but don't bother to go cheaper. I once tried a generic version - it smelled horrible and didn't work at all. Stick with Garnier!

                    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.

                    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.

                  The last tube of dark spot corrector I bought was Garnier Skin Renew and it worked great, but now all I can find is Skin Active. Is this the same product?
