Sephora Dark Spot Minimizing Serum

Sephora Dark Spot Minimizing Serum

Dark spot correctors will likely get a big push for Spring/Summer 2013 and the Sephora Dark Spot Minimizing Serum hits my sweet spot at a mere $20 dollars.

This serum targets dark spots and helps to reduce them!

Take a peek!

Sephora Dark Spot Minimizing Serum targeted serum with a micro-exfoliating applicator that helps to reduce the appearance of dark spots.

No word on the exact ingredients in this one but one can hope it contains hydroquinone.

In a one month period, according to Sephora’s tests, dark spots were three times less visible.

That’s enough to make me happy!

And at $20 it’s one of the more affordable correctors out there.

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I was utterly disappointed with Clinique’s Dark Spot Corrector so naturally I’m weary of any product which claims to diminish/fade dark spots. I have just a few (most likely from years lying in a tanning bed) and Clinique’s was an utter failure for me. I would be interested to see how this one compares. The price is definitely more affordable!

    • the Muse

      melissa yeah, same thing for me, I think I made it through two bottles of Clinique’s Even Better Dark Spot Corrector and never saw a difference in my skin!

          hi janice thanks for confirming 🙂 I’m not in jersey but if I’m ever in your area will def stop by ;-D Can’t pass a Sephora up wherever I am 🙂

            hi muse! have you heard anything about any new korres eyemakeup coming out? i’m not in color (too much drama in that department!) and i love their skincare and their old color stuff. hope if you find out, you will do a review!

          • the Muse

            i haven’t janice…got a link of some sort?

    • the Muse

      lol I wanna kiss you with tongue right now LOL! you always make me laugh 🙂 *squeezes you tight*

      • lisa

        Not to sound dumb but is that little meme CJ’s way of saying this product is a fail? Just asking!!

        • the Muse

          no lisa he was saying he doesn’t have dark spots but wanted to try it anyway 🙂

    • Tammie

      lol! Well tell ya what, you can have my dark spots so you can try the correctors, and I’ll take your clear skin. Deal?

  • Ashley

    You know, I’m always surprised by Sephora. I have a sample of their instant moisturizer that’s really great in a pinch and their volume mascara was really great. BUT on the down side, I hate their pencil eyeliner. So much smudging! I might try this out since it’s affordable.

    I’m willing to give this a shot. I’m always scared to try products with hydroquinone in it since I’ve heard it causes cancer. Maybe that is not true now. I can’t keep up with all the bad things.

    • the Muse

      ugh I can’t either I hadn’t heard that now I’m terrified lol! not sure this contains it though but hoping it does (or not now lol).

      • Daemonswolf

        The important thing to remember is that in small amounts a lot of those scary ingredients aren’t that dangerous. In massive constant application parabens – for example- might be dangerous, but in small amounts there are no studies that show that it’s going to cause cancer.

        Though I am inspired to do research into case studies about hydroquinone and write about it.

  • Michelle

    Hummm, I’ll try this for $20.
    I’m just in my EARLY 30’s and I swear to god I’m getting little “freckles” around my eye area – I can see them. Like it’s not bad enough that I have dark circles, I have to contend with spots? WTF?

    • the Muse

      lol michelle ;-D 30 was like discovering my skin for the first time, things suddenly change 😀

  • CreoleCryss

    I’ve been using this since Feb 28th, so far not a drastic change on older marks but some of the newer marks are starting to fade slightly. I think patience is key here…I know a lot of my older dark spots (some from acne some from ingrown hairs *tears*) will take much longer to fade. I’m satisfied so far and for $20 it’s a steal. I’ve been thinking about applying it with my old school hydroquinone lightener to see if it doesn’t cause irritation and if it speeds up the process (and yes I know what they say and after years of using this off and on I have no damage or cancer or anything that this is supposed to cause).

  • lola

    hi, can you tell me which one is the best dark spot cream/serum that can fully repair or minimizing my dark spot’s?
    i have problem with that 🙁 and don’t know which one i must try.

  • Faith

    This product is no longer offered and I would like to know why because it was fantastic.

  • Carla

    You wrote that you hoped that this product contained hydroquinone. I thought that hydroquinone was a big no-no in skin lightening products???
