I suspected we’d see a return of the dark spot serums, lotions, and potions. I also suspected it would be for Spring since this is the time of the year that new skincare products makes an appearance because hey, it’s a great marketing launch when most folks are having a beauty resolution that includes “new year, new skincare”.
L’Oreal’s popular Youth Code Collection gets an update with two new products for correcting dark spots and hyper pigmentation.
Take a look!
L’Oreal Youth Code Dark Spot SPF 30 Day Cream $24.99
This is a bit misleading as it’s not technically a dark spot treatment cream, correct me if I’m wrong but according to L’Oreal this protects skin from dark spots forming and protects skin against harmful sun rays. I appreciate they added SPF protection but throwing around “Dark Spot” did confuse me as I was thinking this would treat hyperpigmentation.
L’Oreal Youth Code Dark Spot Correcting & Illuminating Serum Corrector $24.99
Ok, this one, at least treats dark spots and hyperpigmentation. Supposedly this one treats dark spots with Vitamin B3, Cg, Pro-Cysteine, and Er195.
I tried and wasn’t entirely successful with Garnier’s Dark Spot Corrector and wasn’t incredibly impressed so I am a little wary of trying anything else dark spot related from the drugstore.
Also at $24.99, these aren’t exactly the cheapest options available so if you’re heading to the drugstore thinking of all the money you’ll save, well, not really right? For $25 more you can get something from a higher end counter that will probably have better results.
But who knows…
Perhaps L’Oreal gets it right with these new products.
I saw them both at Walgreens.
