give it time, it actually works!

By SweeterThnMost

from Stockton, CA

Comments about Garnier SkinActive Clearly Brighter Dark Spot Corrector:

I bought this almost a year ago, when I first used it within days I noticed some of my dark spots (sun damage) lighten up dramatically. Then it kinda hit a plateau and I didn't see any change, or so I thought...after reading up on skin care and what ingredients would help my situation I decided to continue using Garnier's dark spot corrector...fast forward to now, I'm happy to say it worked! I'm guessing depending on how dark and/or how old the areas you're looking to fix is what determines how fast or slow it will take. But it actually is working, I still have some areas that aren't completely gone but it has corrected the majority and I'll continue to use and am confident with a little more time they will all be gone. Give it a chance, I highly recommend!

Really made a difference

By bbymintdrop

from Tempe

Comments about Garnier SkinActive Clearly Brighter Dark Spot Corrector:

I live in Tempe Arizona so my face is very prone to darkening and blotchiness from constant sun exposure.This product helps me maintain my natural skin tone and evens out my complexion very well. The results occurred relatively fast . Instantly, I noticed my complexion was warmer and brighter. After 2 weeks I noticed that my skin was pretty even and smooth. I get so many compliments!

        This is my holy grail skin care product. My skin is very sensitive to this product, and in the best possible way! Within a week or two my skin tone evened out, spots started lightening up.... And what's crazy, it clears my acne! It worked very quickly for me. Using this stuff helps me feel more confident because it makes my skin look amazing. It has a really light, nice smell. It's super lightweight, it's not greasy at all, and it works really well with my oily skin! It works well for me with and without a moisturizer on top. I absolutely adore this product!

              I use this every day and night after cleansing and toning, and before moisturizing. This stuff smells amazing, and makes my skin so soft. After using it, my skin definitely looks brighter. As for my dark spots, the reason I bought this, I have been using this for about three months, and they have all faded and new marks fade faster. However, it is not overnight. It cuts the time it takes my dark marks to fade by a good amount, but it isn't instantaneous.

              Comments about Garnier SkinActive Clearly Brighter Dark Spot Corrector:

              One of the few beauty products that has ever exceeded my expectations! I apply twice per day and have seen a dramatic difference in my dark spots. The large freckles have lighted by about 50%, but the age spots have gotten smaller and appear to be about 75% lighter. I wish I had taken a before pic.

                  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.

                  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.
