    Believe it or not, I am on week two of this (because apparently I use everything :P) I am really glad it’s not making me break out and it doesn’t add heaviness under my serum and moisturizer but so far none of the sun spots around my eyes are lighter (bummer). But the Clinique one didn’t work for me at all! I wish they would bill these as “brighteners” instead of “spot correctors” because I still see spots, yo! I feel so set up for disappointment.

      sarah I agree. First off Clinique didn’t do anything for me and it kinda felt like it was causing my skin to look dull..and secondly, def can get on board with “brighteners” rather than spot correctors as they fade and brighten but not correct darkness…!

    Ohhh, this one is tempting. But that bit about the darkness seeming to return when you don’t use it regularly anymore puts me off… Hm.

    Thanks for the review Muse!

    I used the Clinique one wtih the matching moisturizer and NADA. I really wanted it to work but my spots seem to be exactly the same. I did like the Clinique moistuizer though because it had an SPF and it didn’t break me out.
    I probably won’t bother with this one since it seems more topical. My foundation does that . :-)
    With any of the spot correctors it is imperative that you use sunscreen or the spots will just come right back. I usually don’t use them in the summer because I’m out in the sun too much and I think it’s kind of pointless.

      hey majick I was kinda trying to convince myself it worked but nothing here either on Clinique! I had a little prob with Clinique breaking me out and that’s saying something as it’s rare product breaks me out. I normally use high SPF so def make sure to always SPF…! ;-D

    I’ve never had break outs, but after using this product for 3 -4 weeks, my skin looks terrible with blotches of red bumps here and there. Add to that the fact that it hasn’t brightened my skin nor lightened age spots.

    Thank you for this review. I was considering trying this as I have been using Estee Lauders Idealist for 8 months, with about the same results you describe. Guess I’ll keep searching.

        Thank you for the recommendation, I’m thinking of just going for the Light Laser Treatment to be rid of the dark spot for good.
