Many of us try to hide and get rid of dark spots, yet we don't actually know what they are. So what are dark spots?
"Melanin is the brown pigment responsible for skin colour. When melanin is produced consistently and regularly, skin has an even colour. Yet, under the combined forces of UV rays, stress, ageing and changing hormone levels, excess melanin can be produced within the epidermis. Consequently it creates a localised patch of colour that we call a dark spot." (Garnier Website)

MY REVIEWSo now that you know enough about the product I actually want to tell you about my experience. I've been using the product for just over a week now and I haven't seen actual difference in my skin tone and on my imperfections, however I can tell you that the product has a lovely clean and fresh scent and when you apply the cream onto skin it feels more like a gel and dries quickly, it doesn't leave skin oily or shiny. I really love that the cream is illuminating and gives skin a light but beautiful natural glow. I will keep you posted on more results!
