Rated 4.1 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review Good product
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.
Most Helpful Critical Review Didn't see a difference
I bought this product about 4 weeks ago and haven't seen any difference. It has a very strong scent to it.

I suffered from acne as a teen and my skin tone was very uneven. I have been using this religiously for almost three years at night and the clearly brighter moisturizer in the morning and it has worked miracles. It has completely evened my skin tone and gotten rid of my old scars and even helps my current pimples clear up nicely without scarring. I have had multiple people compliment my skin and I always point them to the clearly brighter line. I cannot say enough good things about it! The price can seem a little steep but this lasts over a month for me (a little goes a long way)
The character is perfect

The character is perfect and so sensitive I love the product
This stuff Actually Works!
Blackwiddah from Fall River,MA
I've tried everything to lighten my dark spots from age and overexposure to the sun, and this is the only product I've found that really works! In less than 3 days the ones on my face were almost invisible. Boy was I happy. I have to buy this by the gallon now and cover my whole chest in it.
After months of use it did not work
Rockies Girl from Colorado
I used this product as directed for over two months with no change to the dark spots on my skin.
Have been looking for this everywhere!
J from Rifle
I was afraid they stopped making this. It's so much better than the expensive ones!
I really like this product.

As a moisturizer
hehe123 from myrtle beach, sc
i just bought it so i wouldn't take my review to seriously but it is great so far very soft, hydrating consistency in my opinion and it smells really good. i do have a question tho, i have very dry skin so i like to moisturize a lot l, should i moisturize before or after applying this? *my moisturizer doesn't have SPF in it*
Steph from Wichita, ks
After spending a few days kayaking, my freckles all came out and were super dark. I had a couple grouped together and my bf kept telling me i had something on my face 😐 no amount of make up covered it up! So i bought this brightener and put it on morning and night for a week. Didnt notice a change at first but now its at least at a tolerable level. Tube says to use it for 2 weeks tho so if i continue maybe theyll all go away? Well see. Disliked the shimmer in the product, but i assume its to reflect light off the dark areas. Didnt help tho.
A daily must have

I've been using it for years I believe it has kept dark spots from becoming all over my face. A family trait, I only have 2 spots
This stuff is magic
Petroffgrad from Honolulu
I really wish I took before pictures. I had some ugly dark spots all over my neck. I suppose it was from the sun exposure but don't know for sure. I'm 27, have been living in Hawaii for 7 years and exposed to sun daily but never had anything as bad as this. My cosmetologist told me to see a doctor but it wasn't an option at the time. After trying Burt's Bees dark spot remover (it did nothing) I bought this just out of desperation. What do you know, the spots were completely gone before I had used the entire tube!!! And I thought it was too small for the price. At first I would apply it twice a day but then reduced it to once a day. I used it along with the same name sunscreen but only occasionally. It works as advertised and I'm so happy! I know what to do should this ever happen again!

I've tried quite a bit of products when it comes to fading dark spots. This product was actually on the list I received from my dermatologist. So, I had a coupon and tried it.
It's been almost 2 weeks and my husband noticed a difference. He said he can tell it is fading.
I was glad when it quickly arrived and I thought the whole tube would be full. To my surprise the 2nd time I used it (just 2 small dots) about the size of a dime total the tube gave it's "flarp" noise which normally means time to buy a new tube. So, the tube was not full like other Garnier products I use. However the product does slightly fade dark spots. I have quite a lot on both of my cheeks. I used to layout in the sun for hours to get the red sun burn on my face. I am olive complected so it takes time for my cheeks to burn. I also used to spend a lot of time in tanning beds growing up. Now that I'm in my 40s it's hard to erase the damage that has been done.
I will keep using this product until the tube is completely empty. I also take before & after pics and I can hopefully leave another review with photos after the tube is completely gone.
Won't buy anymore, has alcohol in it
Eve16 from NYC
Just found out there's alcohol in this as well as the majority of Garnier's products lately. Denatured alcohol takes moisture out of the skin and causes premature aging, which at 32 I'm trying to prevent rather than accelerate. Why would you do this Garnier? I'm extremely upset to find out the moisturizer I loved and had been using for years has this.
Worked for me
Misty from Las Vegas
I bought this in hopes of it lighting my sun spots. AND IT DID.
I noticed the difference after the first tube. My second tube lighted them even more. This is now a must have in my everyday skin care.
Beware of the glitter!!!
Sarah from Fairfield, ca
This product has glitter in it, which was not stated anywhere on the packaging. I am pretty unhappy. I hate glitter in face products so I haven't used this enough to be able to know if it works at all so it was a complete waste of money for me.
It does smell nice though...
Not suitable for sensitive skin
Marisa from Columbus WI
I tried this under my eyes and cheeks and i got a burning sensation. I do not recommend for use under your eyes.
Should have a new container
Julie from AZ
I believe this product would be better in a jar or pot. I cut my tube open when is was "empty" and there was enough for 2 more weeks however it dries out before it can be used.
Holy grail product
Des from Silverdale, WA
I apply this twice a day. It's definitely a holy grail product for my dark spots. I find I break out when I don't use it Lol!
KellyMHolbert2 from Virginia Beach Virginia
I suffer from adult acne leaving scars behind. I've used this product for years and it always helps clear up those dark spots. I love the new formula, smells great and works great!! I only apply it to my whole face at the end of the night before bed so the glitter doesn't bother me at all... In fact it make me look not so sleepy after chasing after two little humans all day!
I love this product
X from Pa
It helps lighten acne redness and dark spots
DARK SPOTS GONE NO
PRECIOUSPAWS33 from EUREKA CA
I used whole tube of GARNIER Dark Spot remover and still have dark spots, Unless you have two dark spot removers. This product does not work
Eh... this stuff is no good.
Carolyn from Tuscaloosa, Al
I've liked things I've used from this brand before but this is not good. I used this twice daily for over 2 weeks and saw no real difference as it claims it does. It also apparently has some sort of glittery speckles in it. I don't do glittery and I certainly don't want my face to be glittery.
Works over time
Prissy Girl from VA
This is not an instantaneous fix for dark spots, but rather used twice a day for several weeks and you will see a difference.
Bring the old formula back....disappointed
NYgoddess from undisclosed
I used to buy the original formula all the time and it worked very well. I took a break from it to try new products which didn't work as well so I decided to give this product another try but now it has a new formula thats not even close to as good as the original formula. This Definitely has way less Vitamin C and is less effective due to this new formula. I unfortunately won't be purchasing this again because the new formula is a watered down version of the old one.
Not that effective
MJ from AL
I used this product to improve my uneven skin-tone, and it worked really well, but the smell is reaalllly overbearing and the formula is sticky and thick on my skin.
This Actually Works!
Rsue92 from Geneva, NY
I bought this almost 6 months ago. I was using it on and off and did see some noticeable brightening in my skin. The past few days I've been applying it twice a day and I'm already seeing an improved overall brightness and my skin looks clearer! I just purchased the daily moisturizer with spf 30 so I'm looking forward to trying that!
