Clinique's two-pronged approach to brightness and even tone: Even Better Clinical serum plus soothing optimizer. Appropriate for all skin types and skin tone.

Clinique started with the power of their Even Better Clinical serum with CL-302 complex over the appearance of dark spots. And paired it with a soothing optimizer for power over the irritations that cause darkening. Dispensed in ideal balance via a unique dual-chamber pump.

Allergy tested. 100% fragrance free.
Use twice a day, morning and night. Dispense 1 to 2 pumps onto fingertips. Spread serum all over your face and neck. Follow with moisturizer. Daily sunscreen is imperative.

          Comments about Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector & Optimizer:

          I use this product morning and night. I use it before I put on my makeup along with the moisturizing gel, then when I take my makeup off at night same regimen. When I was in my early 20s I began breaking out and when I finally got it under control, the acne was gone but left behind a trail of red marks that I couldn't seem to get rid of. I started using the Clarisonic brush along with retinol creams and it helped but whenever I got a new zit it would take forever for the mark to fade after it was gone. Three days of using this product I'm currently zit and mark free. Thank you Clinique!

                Works even better when you 1) apply moisturizer then 2) apply the Clinique product then 3) apply a 40 SPF on top to prevent dark spots from darkening even more. Follow these steps in the morning and at night for the best results!

                          Hello! Please reference the Period after Opening labeling information on the product to determine the date in which the product expires "after opening." The Period After Opening Symbol on the package, which resembles a tuna fish can, and has a number and an "m" representing "months after opening." For example, a (24m) symbol can be read as the product remains fresh for 24 months after opening. Thanks for your question and have a great week!

                          Hello! All products produced by Clinique have undergone extensive testing to ensure their safety and efficacy. Nevertheless, individual medical conditions present unique circumstances that may warrant product review with a physician. Pregnancy and breastfeeding create many physiological changes, and therefore women should consult their doctors prior to using cosmetic products during this period.

                        I'm thinking of getting this product but I have very fair skin. Will this make my entire face lighter or just my dark spots?

                          Hi! It is not a bleaching cream or serum. It will only minimize damage that has occurred on the skin. Thank you for your question and have a great week!
