I was excited to receive the products as part of the trial team, as dark spots is exactly the problem I am trying to combat! Although I have only been using the product for the last 5 days, I have to say that there is a slight difference in the dark areas, particularly under the eyes. Unfortunately nobody else has noticed it, but I doubt I have been using it long enough for others to notice. What I like about the products is the fact that it is easily absorbed – something that is an absolute must for me when deciding on any beauty products. I still have about 2 days’ worth of products left, from the 5ml samples we were given, so definitely looks like it can last. I am not sure of the retail price, so I can’t comment if it is “value for money” just yet.
