Illuminating Dark Spots

Candice Petersen

This product is perfect for lightening those nasty dark spots caused by summer! I have only been using it for a few days and already it seems as if my spots are are a bit lighter. The packaging is pure Estee Lauder style – it’s beautiful and it’s a great travel size, which can easily pop into your make-up bag for use wherever you are.

My skin definitely feels rejuvenated and fresh. This product works really well and the quality is amazing. I would definitely recommend this. I have used serums before but they haven’t worked as well as this one.

Light, illuminating, nourishing serum


The product is intended to lighten pigmentation and to even out your skin tone. It smells fresh, floral, light and pleasant. The consistency is thin, light and watery because it’s a serum. My combination skin hasn’t broken out since using the product. After using the product for one week, my skin seems bright, illuminated, clear, and radiant. I will continue using the product.

Something great

Mishkah Abbas

The purpose of the product is to lighten dark under eye circles and sun spots. The packaging is nice and eye-catching. You will be quickly drawn to it; it smells nice as well, smooth in texture and is very good for your skin. I have noticed a difference since I’ve used the product as my skin in now totally different, my sun spots have lightened, as well as the dark circles under my eyes. My skin feels rejuvenated. The product is applied twice daily and you’ll be happy with the end results. I’m more than happy to recommend it to everyone and would definitely repurchase this again.

Enlightening Serum

Danica Potgieter

This serum has a smooth texture and comes in a small, elegant bottle, which is typical of Estée Lauder’s brand. When applying it, it  absorbed into my skin effortlessly. Estée Lauder claims a significant reduction in the look of dark spots, discolorations, blotchiness and redness in just four weeks, and an improvement in the skin’s texture and tone in less than two weeks. Another big plus is that it’s also non-acnegenic and won’t clog pores. I’ve only used it for a couple of nights, but it definitely leaves my skin feeling silky soft. With regards to the dark spots, it’s still too early to tell a difference, but just from the couple days’ application, my skin already feels more hydrated.

Correcting Night Serum


By night it works naturally with the skin’s own rhythms and begins to significantly reduce the look of dark spots, sun spots, post-acne marks, dullness and redness. By day, the antioxidants help defend against the damage that can cause future spots. This serum is lightweight and moisturizing, and therefore suitable for all skin types. It has a very nice feel on the skin and a very convenient packaging (for use and to preserve the active ingredients), and that’s why it’s a pleasure to use it. This serum is loaded with antioxidants and ingredients that reduce the appearance of dark spots. The ingredients match the claims of the serum, and if you use it daily, you will see that gradually your skin will become more even and brighter. Typically with these kind of serums, to fade dark spots and even skin tone you will need about 1 month to see results. Key Ingredients include: a Vitamin C derivative (spot lightener, improvement of the appearance of sun-damaged skin, reduction of inflammation, promotion of collagen production); mulberry extract (spot lightener); Turmeric extract (anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, prevention of sun-induced skin aging) and one of my favourite ingredients, Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Extract, which reduces inflammation and has some antioxidant properties. I also found a few studies that showed that Turmeric extract could have some photo-protective properties and prevents UVB-induced skin aging. Curcumin, the main curcuminoid present in Turmeric, has also been shown to have significant wound healing properties and to be useful in skin dyspigmentation treatment. Salicylic Acid (BHA) is another interesting ingredient here. It’s an effective keratolytic/exfoliant, but it’s also an anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory molecule. It can unclog pores and improve skin cell turnover rate. Being a loyal Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair client, I have already noticed positive results and trust the brand. My skin has really recovered from sun damage and my skin tone has started looking and feeling fresher, and more hydrated!
