I really like this product, however for darker skin tones it does tend to make the skin around the dark spots lighter which does cause some addtitonal uneven tones.

I used this product for several months, and could tell very little difference in the dark spots on my face. Usually, I love clinique, but I was not at all impressed with this product. And, pricey compared to other similar products that work better.

UH-MAZ-ING!!! I have a medium skin tone and love this product! I had little acne dark spots on my face and after using this product for almost 6 weeks the spots were gone! This is going to be a part of my make up bag forever!

Encanta este producto! Tenía algunas manchas irregulares en la cara que pueden haber estado relacionados con el sol o quién sabe qué, pero tener oscuridad cerca de mi cabello y sobre el labio superior parecía poco atractivo para mí. Lo puse en después me lavé la cara por la noche y dejar en remojo y listo, en el pasado como una semana o así. Hay mucha gente que notaron la diferencia sin mí sacar el tema! Se dice que se puede utilizar como como un tratamiento localizado o una máscara, pero optó por simplemente incluso a mí mismo general durante el invierno.

I used this product over a year ago and wasn't too impressed with the results. I saw very slow and minimal changes. I would recommend if you don't have too many dark spots.

It will definitely lighten the dark spots, used consitantly. It did not remove the spots completely but did lighten them considerably without leaving any rings.

Is this worth the price? I've almost purchased it several times but never brought myself to it. This would be my last resort to get rid of my darks spots before I go to the dermatologist.

How often do you need to use this product to see results with dark spots? Also, where do you work it in to your daily routine?

Is this lightweight? I have tried other dark spot correctors and they all felt really thick no matter the amount I use.
I have many irritating dark freckles on my face, but I have one that is huge. This dark spot is much bigger than a pencil eraser. How much lighter can I expect my spot to become with regular use?
