I have been using this product for years and it really does work! I haven't noticed any downsides other than maybe the price, it's a bit pricey but well worth it! Takes a little bit of time to notice a difference but over time you will see an improvement for sure!

I love this brand! And this product was amazing! I suffer from discoloration and dark spots so I highly recommend this product. Now it is expensive so if you want to pay top dollar you should definitely try this brand because it's worth every penny!

I love Clinique's dark spot corrector! I get sun spots on both my hands and cheeks and this product has drastically diminished how noticeable they are. In addition to overall just making my skin tone more even, it has helped fade acne scars too.

Review for: CLINIQUE Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector & Optimizer 1.7 oz more...
I got this for free from Clinique when I went to one of their classes and at first I really did love it. It felt nice, it absorbed in my skin very well. Lately i've been breaking out the last two weeks and I'm trying to figure out why and finally I realized that this was breaking me out! My chin started out breaking out with little whiteheads and large hard pimples. Eventually around my lips also started to get white painful zits. Today, I got (no joke) 5 more pimples on my cheeks, which I never ever break out on my cheeks! This is the only thing i've changed so it has to be this. I have oily skin so it isn't the best, I only use it during the night. As for the dark spots, no idea. I had to stop using it, I know that everyone loved our originally dark spot corrector... hopefully they don't get rid of that one anytime soon.

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.

I have used the big bottle and it has lasted for a long time so far. It helps reduce/remove my marks after stubborn acne breakouts that come on those days of the month. I like to use it first on my skin before moisturizer or sunscreen.

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?
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?

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