Love love love. Feels incredibly soothing on the skin. I highly recommend this! I have used many products in the Clinque line but this is fantastic. I have dark circles under my eyes and this helped dramatically over long term use.

If I could give this a big round goose egg I would. It was very expensive for no results. I used for a month and noticed no change to my spots. I returned to the Clinique counter and the employee said if I was using it properly that the container should have been empty in a month. $70 a month on serum???? No thanks

I used the even better system for about 2 months and I can't say that I noticed a real difference in my dark spots. I don't want to blame the brand, maybe I was doing it wrong, I don't know. It just didn't work for me

I actually used it every night before sleeping for a whole month and it definitely got my skin better looking! the spot is almost gone! maybe if i bought another bottle it would be completely gone but yes, it is a bit pricey. i hope the ones who did not like it know that they should use a sunscreen right after using clinique or else the effects are reversed!

I have struggled with acne in the past and have lots of acne scars and uneven skin tone. I've been using this product 2 times a day for 2 weeks and my skin looks the best it has in years. It's smoothr, brighter and the color is all the same. I am please and would recommend this to anyone.

I have been using this product now for about 5 weeks now, I bought it because I have been suffering with scaring from spots, mostly on my cheeks and chin, this product has worked amazingly, it has done exactly what I wanted it to do and it has made my face look so much brighter
It is a bit pricey but I think it is value for money, I use 2 pumps twice a day and still haven't had to purchase another one
Would highly recommend

I have been using this product for one week now but the product says it takes about 4 weeks to see a difference, helps for non-birth mark, like sun damage skin, acne scars, dark spot etc.

I've used this in two periods and after using a full bottle I have seen some fair improvement but not nearly as much as I would have expected. If I missed one day it would go straight back to the way it was. Not worth the money considering the small amount you get.

This product worked well to reduce the darkness of some spots especially under my chin and on my chin. For the best results use it twice a day and in a matter of weeks your dark spots will be as if it never happened.

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?
