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

A product I can swear by. It changed my life and I’m not joking. My face was full of scars and they all disappeared by using this product constantly. I still use it even if I don’t need it anymore. Clinique Even Better Clinical™ Dark Spot Corrector & Optimizer

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.

Review for: no color more...
Although visible effects can be seen within 2 weeks of use, I expected much more from this product, especially it is very pricey. This did diminished the appearance of my dark spots gradually , but its effect also seem to diminish overtime, getting less and less effective overtime . After 4 weeks of constant application, this could not further diminish the appearance of darks spots , which means that it does not hold true to its claim of 8 weeks treatment.

I would not recommend this to other people who is considering purchasing. You can get a much better substitute with the same price and I don't even know whether such diminished appearance is a result of my metabolism or the effect of the actual product itself.

The BEST dark spot corrector I have ever used. It cleared up acne and lightened spots within a month of twice a day use. The only thing I dislike is all the unnatural ingredients Clinique uses!

This is a serum that removes hyperpigmentation from acne scarring or damaged skin via UV rays. The serum penetrates deep into the skin removing the melanin at the origin and gently exfoliates the surface of the skin. Anyone who is interested in this and wants results my advice is to take a before and after 4week picture. Also, the number one cause of hyperpigmentation is due to the sun- so SPF is needed otherwise you won't see any results. I've used this to spot treat sun spots and after 1.5months is when I saw a significant difference.

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.

Is this lightweight? I have tried other dark spot correctors and they all felt really thick no matter the amount I use.
