For everyone patiently waiting for week one’s update on Garnier Dark Spot Corrector here it is! Believe it or not I’m actually into the third week, but given everything going on lately I wasn’t able to update sooner. I anticipated any delays however and made sure to take photos of my skin at the time. Good Kayekie.
I originally posted the full review 6 days into using it, so I will get week 2’s update to you very shortly as well.

So what’s new?
Week 1 Diary:
Within a few days I saw my skin become brighter and clearer. I honestly hadn’t seen my skin this glowy in years! Matter of fact, I don’t recall my skin ever looking this fresh. So far I’m impressed.
As for the spots on my cheeks, I’ve noticed only a tiny improvement overall. The surrounding skin is brighter, so they are improved by default. I’m not disappointed at all, it’s only been 7 days and I’m really happy with the changes so far.
I’ve also noticed that redness left from acne scarring has reduced and contributed to looking fresher. Wow. Good skin. Where have you been all my life?
The ultimate test was seeing myself in a restaurant bathroom mirror. You know the moment where you see yourself in different lighting, and you think whoa! (good or bad reaction). Well for me it was a good ‘whoa!’. I had only applied a light tinted moisturiser before going out and wasn’t expecting the nice glowy face staring back at me. Hello there.
The down side, I did break out a little within the first few days. It was nothing serious, just a few bumps, but an expected reaction for my acne prone skin none the less. Luckily I have a great acne treatment which cleared it up in a few days. Note, there’s no way of knowing exactly which product caused the breakout, or if it was a combination effect. See my original review to see what other products I’m using.
For everyone running in terror because of the mini breakout, never fear. The breakout cleared up quick smart, and I don’t regret trying this spot corrector at all.
See week two & three updates.
