Clinique: Even Better Dark Spot Corrector

I'm sure you've all seen this on TV and magazine advertisements and desperately wanted to try it? It's a serum that promises a dramatic fade in red marks, scars and uneven skintone in 12 weeks. Sounds perfect! So off I went to the Clinique counter at Myer. I asked the salesperson about a million questions, as I do and she assured me that it worked and that it wouldn't break me out. At $92 it was a little out of my price range, but I bought it anyway because hey, I'll pay anything for perfect skin.

I was very excited to use it and see results, I applied it on cleansed skin morning and night as directed. You only need a small amount as it's a serum and a little goes a long way.

One day after I started using it I noticed I was breaking out, but didn't think much of it. As the days went on however, I continued to break out and my skin was the worst it's ever been. I stopped using the serum straight away and my skin went back to normal. I saw no improvements at all.

A few weeks later, I tried it out again, hoping that the $92 serum would actually work. Sadly, it again made me break out.

I wish I could give a more positive review forr this product, but the truth is for it's price, it really does nothing. I saw no improvements in the time that I used it and in fact, it made my skin worse. I suggest you use apple cider vinegar or a moisturiser with alpha/beta hydroxy in it if you want to improve your skin tone, it works better and is a whole lot cheaper!

Would I buy it again? No chance!
Would I recommend it? No
Should you buy it? Don't waste your money, there are better products out there


  1. Thanks for the review, Clinique products tend to brake me out. I find there products a bit harsh

  2. Wow, thanks for your honest review! Sorry that this didn't work for you.

  3. Thanks for the review. I love how honest you were. This would really help A LOT of people. :D


  4. Wow, I've used Clinique liquid foundations and powders and eye creams and I have to agree with your review on this product but extending it to all clinique products- they're worthless! Possibly some of the worst makeup I've used has been from Clinique and its definitely not worth the price!
