Since Clinique launched its Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector last year, other similar products with similar promises are starting to show up.
This interests me because I’m a former sun worshipper, and, yes, my skin is paying for my sins. I didn’t know any better back then. Now I do, and sunscreen is my best friend. I plan to make room on my vanity for a good spot corrector, too, when I find the best one.
Garnier Dark Spot Corrector: It is said to reduce the appearance of dark spots caused by aging, repeated environmental exposure, hormonal fluctuations, and even past acne damage. It is infused with potent Vitamin C to break up dark spots and lift them away. According to the company, skin looks instantly brighter and more evenly toned. Discolorations and spots fade in four weeks; in eight weeks, the size of spots are diminished. I’m tempted to try it, mostly because of the $16.99 price.
Lancome Bright Expert Dark Spot Corrector and Radiance Activator: Enriched with yeast extract, the comapny says the product virtually erases the appearance of dark spots to reveal an evenly radiant complexion. Clinical studies show 78.8 percent of women saw a reduction in the appearance of dark spots after four weeks of use; 82.3 percent of women saw an even toned complexion after four weeks of use. Price: $65 for a 1-ounce tube.
So, if you’ve found a spot corrector that really works, share.
