Many people have asked me in comments and in email about whitening products and spot correctors. I’ve tried quite a few in my time but the one product I’ve actually cared about enough to repurchase and which I personally recommend is the one by Clinique. This was launched about 2 years ago as the Derma White Clinical Brightening Essence, and you can read my review on it by following the link if you like.
Quite honestly, this is about one of the better brightening essences and spot correctors I’ve tried. It does what it says and does not dry out my skin nor leave it feeling tight. I’ve finished it up and bought my own and even that one was on its last legs by the time I got wind that Clinique was consolidating things and changing the name of this product.
Elsewhere in the world, this very same product was known as the Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector which was what I noted in my previous review. To be perfectly honest, it was really confusing. So what Clinique has done is to standardize their labelling worldwide, and in Asia, this product will be known as the Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector – same brightening product, different name.
If you have fresh pimple or acne marks (face it, oft times we can’t restrain our itchy fingers from squeezing our spots) I’ve found that using this helps fade the marks quite quickly. Old marks do take longer, but they will fade and I don’t find it unduly harsh.
For pigment spots, it will take longer. Lighter spots will fade and lighten more quickly while more stubborn spots will take longer. I found this gives a more even toned visage and I am contemplating just sticking with this for the near future, and for maintenance, instead of using other prescriptive treatments that I find too harsh on my skin.
The even better news is that Clinique also dropped their prices with the name change. So Even Better Clinical now retails for RM230/30ml and RM330/50ml
Have you tried the Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector serum or the previously named Derma White Clinical Brightening Essence? Did you like it? I’m not very loyal to skincare but here’s one I’m most loyal to and which I would recommend :)
