It’s been 12 weeks that I’ve been using the Clinique Dark Spot Corrector (yesterday, 3/22) and now I’m back to compare results. The product and advertising says that after 12 weeks there should be noticeable difference.
I’ve been using it day and night with a few occasional nights where I skipped it but. Here are the shots:
As you can see, it looks like it’s worsened. I don’t know if the product is just not working but I have an inkling that its that plus the fact that new acne and dark spots have popped up clouding real comparison. At this point I will not be repurchasing. It was $50 a bottle and after 12 weeks have not worked, or at least not well and visibly enough so I will probably look for a different product for dark spots.
I’ve recently purchased the Clinique dark spot corrector because I read all these reviews about how it evens skin tone in 12 weeks or less so I was really excited to try it.
Here are my before pictures. I mostly just have acne dark spots on my forehead and parts of my cheeks.
With this new product my skin care routine is even longer than before and I’m still missing two products. I usually wash my face with a cleanser, tone, moisturize and spf, use eye cream, face primer and then start with makeup. I’ve inserted this right after toner because I feel like it should sink in before my spf. On the package, they were very clear that I definitely have to use spf with this product so I figured, spf second just to be on the safe side.
Results should start showing in 4 weeks so in four weeks I will do an update post. I hope all goes well. So far my skin is not reacting or anything but my skin isn’t sensitive so I don’t have worries about that.
