I have dark spots as a result of adult acne. I’ve been applying this dark spot corrector as my daily moisturizer (for 4 weeks, today), to my face, neck & chest.
For reference, my skin is oily, dry, acne-prone, and super sensitive.
On the Garnier Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spot Corrector box, the product claims the following:
Instantly: Skin looks brighter and more even toned.
In 4 Weeks: Discolorations and spots fade.
In 8 Weeks: Size & intensity of spots are diminished.
I did not experience the “instant results”, however, having used this everyday for 4 weeks, I should see some fading. Let’s find out…
Hmmm…I’m not sure these photos tell me anything exciting. There’s definitely no noticeable difference when I look in the mirror.
I’m not sure if it’d be worth continuing another
4 8 weeks with this product, considering the pros & cons:
• Light consistency
• Didn’t irritate my sensitive skin
• Smell – I think this stuff stinks…but then again, I don’t care for “perfume-y” skin care products…unless the scent is “that good”. This one is not.
• Caused excess oil – There isn’t an immediate greasy sheen after applying but, a few hours later (& especially towards the end of the day), my face was greasy. I could feel/see “the grease”. This did not happen with my previous moisturizer.
• Weird packaging – There’s a cap at the base that screws off the tube, then there’s another cap (on top of the base cap), that screws off to reveal a narrow applicator tip…so there’s two caps, and both of them came off. Confusing. I left the base cap on & just used the top one to open & close the product.
This is starting to be a very disappointing review.
It doesn’t help that I just visited the product website, and noticed that the “In 8 weeks: Size & intensity of spots are diminished.” result claim has been bumped up to “12 weeks” 🙁
I understand that ridding dark spots is a slow process, but Geez!…don’t scars “diminish” on their own in 12 weeks???…
Have you tried Garnier Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spot Corrector?
Should I give it more time???
