Garnier Skin Renew Dark Spot Overnight Peel is an interesting topic of conversation in the skincare world. This is a highly affordable glycolic peeling solution that will set you back a mere $16.99 (or less depending where you purchase it).
I, unfortunately, had very little success with the Garnier Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spot Correction Moisturizer but I still wanted to try this in conjunction with the moisturizer to see how it worked out for me.
I have duller skin with minor darkness on the lower hand side of my face that could use brightening up. I purchased it for this reason as well as to refine my skin.
Take a look!
Garnier Skin Renew Dark Spot Overnight Peel is supposedly a clinically effective leave-on glycolic peel that speeds exfoliation to fade dark spots, evens skin tone, brightens skin and smooths texture. If I could get all that from this simple treatment I’d be a very happy girl. Honestly, even to just refine my skin, ease flakes, and create a softer, smoother canvas I’d be impressed.
This has a light lemon-y fragrance and for me a very gentle formula. The gel is a little thinner and runnier in consistency, absorbs easily, but leaves behind a bit of tackiness. You’ll want to apply it before the moisturizing treatment as a serum of sorts. I tried it in conjunction with the Dark Spot Treatment Moisturizer as well as on its own.
Supposedly within four weeks you’ll see results. I used it well over a four week period but actually saw very little results.
This doesn’t actually contain any good ingredients for exfoliating skin so technically my drier skin wasn’t any smoother or softer after long term use. It does contain a high amount of vitamin C but in an unstable formula which unfortunately I didn’t experience any brightening benefits from. I’m sure this will vary from skin type to skin type but in my experience the brightening and evening of skin tone wasn’t to be.
Overall, if you’re seriously needing brightening and treatment of dark spots I’d recommend Philosophy’s Miracle Worker Dark Spot Brightener in conjunction with their Miracle Worker Pads. I’ve had excellent results with these products.
Sorry Garnier, this one just didn’t work for me.
How about you?
