Scientifically developed for all skin tones and types. Even skin tone discovery: Innovation derived from gene science. After 10 years of research, L'Oreal scientists have identified specific sets of genes* that are responsible for discolorations, contributing to skin's evenness and luminosity. Dark spot correcting GenActiv Technology: Works from within to skin's surface to help correct and fade dark spots, reversing the formation of pigment, resulting in a dramatically more even skin tone. Now, vibrant with a youthful look, skin instantly appears luminous as if lit from within. See dramatic results: Immediately: Skin is smoother, visibly more luminous; skin is refined and hydrated. 1 week: More uniform skin clarity emerges. 4 weeks: Dark spots, age spots, sun spots, and post acne marks are faded. 12 weeks: Skin's evenness and luminosity are recaptured; discolorations are dramatically diminished. Non-greasy; dermatologist tested for gentleness; non-comedogenic. Unique texture: This luxurious, fast-absorbing, and light-infusing serum gives skin an instantly luminous appearance.
Before using your moisturizer, apply over your face in the AM and PM. For optimal results, use with SPF 30 Day Cream to prevent the appearance of future dark spots. Recommended Youth Code regimen: Step 1. Foaming Gel Cleanser. Step 2. Eye Cream. Step 3. Serum Corrector. Step 4. AM: SPF 30 Day Cream; PM: Day/Night Cream.

    Comments about L'Oréal Youth Code Dark Spot Correcting & Illuminating Serum Corrector:

    I use the product mornings and evenings to fade age-spots (sun-spots). It works slowly, but is gentle and makes my skin very soft. It does work over time.

      Comments about L'Oréal Youth Code Dark Spot Correcting & Illuminating Serum Corrector:

      Recently in my late 20's I developed an issue with acne that I never had before. Deep, painful acne patches. I was devastated! After visiting my dermatologist, I now use a prescription acne cream which has completely cleared up my skin of new blemishes. But my skin is extremely sensitive now, and past acne marks take FOREVER to heal. I mean, if I even scratch my face a tiny bit, it will leave a red mark that turns into a nice brown spot for months and months.

      I did my research on most effective dark spot correcting creams, and while I didn't want to spend $200, I was willing to shell out some cash to clear up these old acne marks. I figured for how cheap this was, I'd give it a try for a few weeks and if I didn't see results (which was my expectation), then I would move on to something more expensive.

      Holy. Cow. I was completely surprised and blown away when within DAYS I saw an improvement on some of my larger dark spots. Within 2 weeks of use I PROUDLY sport a fresh face (I used to never wear foundation, but recently have resorted to to cover up the spots). I am loving my radiant skin again!

      I use it in the morning and night. It absorbs quickly and love the texture and smell is wonderful. It isn't very moisturizing so I still use CeraVe afterwards at night, but it's perfect for radiant skin during the day. Doesn't make my skin greasy and gives it a nice glow.

      I highly, highly recommend this. Hopefully my pictures below can give you a good idea of the before and after of this amazing little product!

        Comments about L'Oréal Youth Code Dark Spot Correcting & Illuminating Serum Corrector:

        I usually use the Clinique serum, but that can get pricey. So I looked to this as an alternative. NEVER again. It didn't break my skin out at first. But after using this for a little over two weeks, I noticed deep acne developing on one side of my face (primarily the side I applied the serum on, as that was where my dark spots were). I kept thinking, "Oh, I'm just stressed" or, "Oh, it's just 'that time'." But no. As soon as one acne spot would go away, I'd use the serum on the spot to ensure the darkness would fade quickly. Then 1-2 days later, there would be a deep pimple in the same exact spot. Upon examining the ingredients, not only does this have MULTIPLE ingredients with a medium chance of causing acne, but it also has bismuth oxychloride, which is known to cause cystic acne. Stay far, FAR away from this if your skin is sensitive and you know you break out easily. The smell is divine, but the results are tear-inducing. I'm so upset I have even worse skin to deal with now that I've been using this for a few weeks.

        amazing!

        Comments about L'Oréal Youth Code Dark Spot Correcting & Illuminating Serum Corrector:

        This product is great. One pump in the morning and one pump at night is all you need! I started seeing my dark spots lighten up within days. My skin over all is much more youthful and healthy. It smells great, is not greasy and does the job! My out of control acne has also cleared up. I was skeptical at first but my face needed help. I'm glad I tried this product. I will definitely continue to purchase!

          I use this in morning and before bed after washing my face. It costs half my previous AHA treatment and works 100% better. My skin feels like I've had a facial and looks smoother and more even-colored. I love it so much that it will probably be discontinued (isn't that how it goes?).

            I use this product daily and love the single dose pump dispenser. Even though the bottle is expensive it lasts for months. It takes several weeks to begin to notice a difference so keep using it!

                I've only been using this product for about 3 weeks and I can already see a significant difference in the redness of my acne scars and sun spots. I'm also really happy with the texture and lightweight feel of this serum.
