Spots on a dalmatian are cute, but an uneven skin tone, and worse, dark spots on your face, make you look older. Alas (I’m tempted to say “Poor Yorik” but the Shakespearean references might get a bit old), once you’ve got these issues, they don’t go away easily. However, the Garnier Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spot Corrector uses the power of 5% Vitamin C (not the power of the pen), to help reduce dark spots caused by aging, repeated environmental exposure, hormonal fluctuations, and even past acne damage. If you have been reading the Advice Sisters products reviews for a while, you already know that Vitamin C as an antioxidant doesn’t just fight back against the sun’s damaging rays. Garnier Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spot Corrector uses Vitamin C power to encourage skin-plumping collagen, and help reduce pigmentation-causing “clusters” below the skin, as it gently rids your surface skin of dry and dull cells.
Hard Working Moisturizer
It’s not just a way to reduce dark spots, it is also a hard-working, multitasking daily moisturizer. Who doesn’t love a product that does more? Apply Garnier’s Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spot Corrector to your face and neck on a daily basis, and follow with a good SPF (perhaps Skin Renew Anti-Sun-Damage Daily Moisture Lotion SPF 28) to keep more spots at bay. Daily SPF protection is still a must-do to prevent potential skin cancer, and of course, premature aging of your skin.
The reality is (as I said in paragraph one), it takes close to a month to get normal, healthy cells to regenerate. The results with Skin Renew Dark Spot Corrector aren’t instantaneous. But if you use this product regularly (and properly), within four weeks your dark spots and discolorations can start fading. Within eight weeks you may see the size of the spots and marks shrinking.
However, this product is from Garnier, and they make good products so their claims aren’t wild or crazy. It makes sense. If dark spots and uneven skin tone are your issues, you can’t go wrong by trying this. You just have to be patient. I tried it on one side of my face, and while I didn’t see a huge immediate difference, my skin did look more refreshed. It also felt moist and nice.
I like the fact that the product is easy and pleasant to use and for all skin types and all ages. Buy it for moisturization. If it reduces those dark spots and discolorations over time, it’s a bonus. A laser peel will give you more intense and immediate results, However this product is available to everyone at just under $17 (not thousands of dollars). The only thing this product doesn’t have is SPF, so if you’re going to use it as your daily moisturizer, as I said previously, you must add a sunblock over it.
Garnier Skin Renew Dark Spot Corrector has a suggested retail price of $16.99 for a 12.7 fl. oz. tube, and is available in drug, discount, and grocery stores nationwide. I give it high marks for a budget-minded skincare product that a concentration of pure Vitamin C on the mass-market level. Get Some!
