Garnier Dark Spot Corrector Roadtest

Garnier’s Dark Spot Corrector is killing it in the US and now it’s hitting our shores – so I thought I’d roadtest it and see if it lives up to the hype.

What is it?

Garnier’s Dark Spot Corrector is a daily moisturiser that visibly corrects dark spots for even skin tone.

Why do you need it?

While polka dots are on trend for summer, the one place you don’t want spots is on your face! This product fades sun spots, age spots plus acne marks.

How does it do it?

This highly concentrated formula contains 5% of pure Vitamin C to reduce pigmentation, brightening skin and accelerate cell renewal.

The million dollar question – does it work?

In a past life, I worked in the beauty industry so I’m incredibly skeptical of new products with big claims. But in this case, I’m more than happy to say I was wrong!

Garnier’s Dark Spot Corrector does what it says it will, and does it well. I started to notice results within one week, and was really impressed by what I saw…or should I say…didn’t see a month later! The sun spots and pigmentation that arrived in its droves with my second pregnancy have well and truly faded and some have disappeared all together.

Other boxes that this product ticks for me are:

  • Not only did it get rid of spots, it also brightened my entire complexion…and dare I say…made my skin look radiant!
  • It feels lightweight and is layerable under other skincare products. It was also super hydrating.
  • While I  have ultra sensitive skin, it wasn’t aggravated at all.

Will you have to save your pretty pennies to be able to afford it?

The good news is you’ll be saying, ‘Out, damned spot’ for just $16.95 and the even better news is that it’s available from pharmacies and supermarkets – which means you can classify it as part of your grocery budget!
