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.
