Week 3 diary:
See the original full Garnier Dark Spot Corrector review here.
Hmmm, is it possible I’ve hit my peak? My skin is as bright as ever, but is that slight darkening of the cheek spots I see? It’s possible I am looking too much into it but I woke this morning (mid-week 3) to find the spots look a shade or two darker. It’s difficult to know for sure, so I will have to give it a few days. Perhaps my skin has lightened so much it must ‘looks’ that way.
I should mention I’ve also been using it on my hands and arms, as another test. I’ve seen improvement in the skin in these areas as well, and as a reader asked in my week 2 update, I did notice a difference in skin texture too. Bonus.
At this point I’ve been applying it twice a day, to my face, neck and decolatage. And once a day to my hands and arms. The tube is still going, although nearing completion, and I guess it will last till the four-week mark and possibly beyond. That’s not bad, considering my heavy use. If you were sparing, you could make this last a very long time.
Days later: while the dark spots are not so in-your-face again, they’re still ‘there’. By now I can clearly see that the improvement is 99% in my overall face, and 1% targeted to the spots themselves. As I’ve mentioned many times before, there’s great improvement, but it’s boosted by the overall effects. I’m starting to think that for a real solution, I’m going to need professional help.
I won’t jump ship just yet, not by any means. I’m still very happy. But I’m not so optimistic I can fade these buggers with cream alone. Stay tuned!
PS – oh, and I’ve still yet to see any discoloration (which is expected) in the product. Just FYI.
