I Love this!!! It really works for my skin! I have so many sun spots and it lightened them right up in the recommended time frame! Also used it on my hands and saw a huge difference. My skin was smoother and also dark spots were lightened up

He tenido un gran resultado en mi cara con éste suero que hace que tu piel sea más renovada por los daños causados, ya sea por cicatrices de acné, espinillas o daños causados por el sol o el pasar los años. En mi país la marca Clinique es muy cara y en mi caso debo ahorrar para poder adquirir este tratamiento que hace grandes milagros en mi cutis, pero el resultado es lo que me motiva!... A la primer semana de estar usándolo se empiezan a ver grandiosos resultados con la textura de la piel y a desvanecerse las primeras marcas de tu rostro.

I have a small dark spot just under my left eye. Within 5 days the spot has become visible lighter. In 5 days more I expect this spot to be not visible at all. I love thus product.

I do like this dark spot corrected I would say it is one of the best as I suffer from hiperpigmentation and melasma. It seems to lighten my dark spots but not get rid of my melasma completely. I purchased it at Hudson's bay in the beauty department. This is great for anyone that wants to at least lighten those stubborn sun spots that can make us look older than we are.

This works well to rid of dark spots , it may take two bottles tho. I did try a new one called wild Rose and ir seems to work faster. But I'll still give this four stars cuz its nice to put all over your face before going out.

I am in love with the serum! I was on the hunt for a serum that would help me reduce the apparence of dark spot left by my acne scaring. Within a month of using the product I did notice a difference. My dark spot were beginning to lighten. Since then, the serum has always been apart of my routine.

Definitely one of the best dark spot correctors that I've ever tried! It didn't take long for my dark spots to lighten up. The one downside is that is a bit expensive..but I would definitely recommend trying this

Purchased as a trial and I did really like it. I had a small tester and it lasted about a week I felt and saw a difference my skin felt calm and looked brighter. With continuous use I feel it would have worked better

My dark spots haven't completely disappeared but my skin colour is unified, the serum doesn't irritate the skin, from the first uses the skin looks more unified, it was the first product of the Clinique brand that I use and I recommend it, If would buy it again.

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?
