Whether you’re among the palest of the pale (like me!), dark-skinned or anywhere in between, chances are you’re concerned about pigmentation and dark spots. And whether hormones or sun damage is what’s to blame, you’re well aware that getting rid of these dark spots—particularly if you don’t want to use hydroquinone—isn’t exactly an easy task. And alas, a spotted face really does age us, doesn’t it?
The thing is, it doesn’t have to. Not when there are products like Skyn ICELAND White Cloud Spot Corrector with Pigment Lightening Complex . It’s not only free of hydroquinone, but vegan and sans parabens, too! Great news for those of you who don’t want a mottled face but also aren’t interested in conventional, chemical-heavy brighteners. What I love most about this particular product is that it contains vitamins A and C—the two most important vitamins in skin care, if you ask me! And it’s suited to battle pigmentation issues running the gamut from age spots, dark patches, acne scars and an uneven tone.
I’ve been using this product for about 4 weeks now, so I’m just a couple weeks shy of the point at which I should start expecting dramatic results. (The brand claims results will be seen in as little as 6 weeks.) I do have a couple problem spots on my face, and I suspect it will take 2-3 months to see a difference in those. However, I have already noticed my complexion looks more luminous and even-toned!
My verdict: I like this product a lot. It doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin in any way and seems to be working quite well. I encourage anyone who wants to put the kibosh on dark spots and say hello to a brighter, more even-toned complexion to give it a try! And what pigmentation product recommendation would be complete without a mini-rant on the importance of sunscreen? You should already be using it religiously, but when you’re using a product like this one your diligence becomes all the more important.
