Ah the old dark spot corrector….
I thank Clinique every single day for bringing hyper pigmentation and dark spots to the beauty world’s attention. I tried to love their Clinical Dark Spot Corrector but technically it was more about me using it religiously and convincing myself of how great it was working when it actually wasn’t doing much at all.
On the upside, I really appreciate the trend they created because the dark spot world was sadly lacking and now the market is saturated with a slew of options for correcting hyper pigmentation, dark spots, and sun damage. Praise the skincare gods!
I have a small amount of hyper pigmentation I’d like to correct that’s located on my jawline/lower cheek area so I’ve been trying every single dark spot corrector around.
Believe me I’ve been through numerous bottles that promise me the world and by far the best one I’ve tried is Philosophy’s Miracle Worker Dark Spot Corrector.
You NEED this.
Putting dark spots and sun damage aside this is an absolute essential item for girl’s with dull skin, aging skin, or those who desire whiter, brighter skin. On top of the benefits of correcting issues with hyper pigmentation, dark spots, and sun damages the product works as an all over brightener to ease dullness, create smoother, whiter, brighter skin, and to give lackluster, aging skin a much needed boast.
This comes in a stable, pump jar packaging and surprisingly does not use Hydroquinone to correct damage. I’ve always heard success stories with products that do contain this ingredient so I was surprised this didn’t contain it but still managed to even skin tone while brightening. I actually didn’t swatch it since it’s too precious to waste but its simply a beige/brownish thin cream which you apply two to three pumps of each night prior to moisturizer. For the best results I recommend using the entire Miracle Worker Collection particularly if your skin is starting to show the signs of aging or you’re just dull. I find the best combination that’s successful for me is Philosophy’s Miracle Worker Pads plus this and a moisturizer of your choice, I personally like the Miracle Worker one as part of the PM regime but you can use what you like.
This was designed to improve the appearances of skin discolorations associated with age spots, acne scars, sun damage, etc…plus it acts as an all over brightening so your skin looks fresher and more youthful. Your tone will be more uniform as well with continued use. It won’t whiten but it will brighten to a point that you may notice a change in the tone of your skin, this is a good thing in my opinion as it only gives you a more youthful glow as well as eases dullness commonly associated with dry and/or aging skin which isn’t producing collagen as quickly as it once did.
This contains stabilized vitamin C but you have to be aware of the expiration date for the best results. I’m not really a skincare guru but I did a fair bit of research on this when I noticed the results and I have to say that overall it seems to be a stable product with many good ingredients that work together to reduce the appearance of dark spots.
The good thing about this and all Miracle Worker products is the fact that it’s very gentle particularly if your skin simply can’t deal with ingredients such as hydroquinone. It effectively works without disturbing skin’s natural balance and creating havoc.
Of course, for the best results you have to be religious with use. I find my skin goes back to being dull should I skip a night or two however long terms results will lighten dark spots and those won’t return so long as you are diligent with the use of SPF. I’ve been using this since the release, so say 9 months or so, and I saw a huge improvement in dark spots over that time period. They aren’t yet completely gone but they are barely visible now.
Overall, Philosophy Miracle Worker Dark Spot Corrector is a product that successfully delivers on its promises. In a sea of dark spot correctors that promise but never deliver, this is a no brainer purchase. I highly suggest purchasing it. Don’t expect instant results but with continued use I think you’ll be more than happy with the results. I like that it not only corrects but successfully brightens and whitens skin. This improves the overall appearance of skin as well as treats it.
Amazing stuff, I just recently finished off my first bottle and have since purchased another (the original was a press sample).
It gains my highest approval. I honestly have never experienced this much success with a skincare product and I’ve used plenty.
Muse Approved for purchase.
