Although I don't have overly problematic skin, like everyone else I get spots, and when I do get a bad spot it tends to leave a dark mark that often take several months to begin to fade, leaving my skin tone sometimes looking uneven. I've constantly been on the look out for something to clear them up, but had given up hope and accepted it. So when I saw the Dark Spot Corrector in boots it felt like a perfect fit for me. Over the years I have tried a wide range of Garnier products, and I especially love their skin care range so I had high hopes for the Corrector, and at £9.99 from Boots you cant go wrong in my book!
What Causes Dark Spots
Melanin is the brown pigment responsible for skin colour. However excessive amounts of stress, UV rays, ageing and changing hormones levels can lead to to much melanin being produced, leading to a small patch of colour that we know as dark spots.
'a daily skincare product that evens skin tone, reduces the appearance of dark spots and illuminates whilst giving intense 24hr moisture. The light non greasy texture is suitable for all skin tones.'
The first thing that hit me when I tried the Corrector was the smell, its amazing. Its lovely and citrusy, but not over powering, just fresh. The smell alone is refreshing enough to wake me up. I love how natural it smells, It doesn't feel like I'm plastering my skin in anything un natural, which when it comes to skin is a good thing.
Like Garnier claims its very lightweight and not greasy at all, it lovely to apply and is a great base first thing in the morning. I have quite oily skin at times and this complements my skin type well and doesn't make my skin more oily.
2 Months On
After using the corrector for quite some time I can honestly say i've noticed a serious change in my skin tone. Some of the dark spots that I've had for what feels like years have now faded a huge amount and I don't feel like I always have to wearing concealer in order to feel confident.
