        I started using this to correct some dark spots and redness a few weeks ago and I can already tell the difference. It is super smooth, feels great going on and seems to just slide over my face. My skin texture is amazingly smooth and the spots and redness are much less noticeable now. I have really oily skin so I only use it at night and it has already made a big difference. The brightening is almost immediate and the redness reduction and calming are within days.

        I have asian, combination skin, and dark spots from acne scars and hyper pigmentation. I've been using this product consistently, as directed, for 6 weeks now and I don't see a difference in dark spots, though my skin is smoother. If anything I have more dark spots than before from additional acne scars over these six weeks. I would have hoped for at least a placebo effect but I've also been taking weekly pictures to document my results and they confirm 0 changes in dark spots or redness. Since I paid for this product I'll continue using it for the purposes of making my skin smooth, which helps for makeup application to cover the dark spots, but so far I don't see any changes. Also the pump is pretty hard to use. At first, product was only coming out of one side and i wasn't sure if both chambers were supposed to dispense product. And I can't take the bottle apart to see what's inside. Poor design, difficult application, and it's hard to control how much comes out of the bottle.

        Also I don't know why it says I received a free trial of this product, I bought this full price because of good reviews. And im not reviewing this as a part of a contest, and I've indicated this in the questions.

        I got a free full size of this product during a promotion. I chose it because I have some acne dark marks, but this product doesn't help to reduce them at all. To me it just works like the moisturizing gel ...

        Love how soon I see results!

        By 

        from Murfreesboro, TN

        Comments about Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector & Optimizer:

        While on a cruise I had a facial. The therapist told me that I had hyperpigmentation and dark spots due to sun damage. She recommended that I buy some products (insanely expensive products) that they sold in the spa. Instead of purchasing those products, I headed downstairs to the onboard shops where I knew I had seen Clinique. Because of being a past customer on and off since I was a teenager (my mother had me use it), I knew Clinique would do the job at a much better price point!

        I like how this treats current dark spots/areas and prevents new ones. I have only used this product for about 3 weeks and can already tell results. The dark spots are lightening some and my face has a brighter and more even skin tone. I look forward to seeing how this product works over the next weeks! I know using a product can take time to see results so, I plan to use this for 12 weeks at least. My bet is by then I will be rating this as a 5 star!

        I had high hopes for this treatment, especially after splurging on the purchase. However, it has been 6 weeks and my before and after photo shows no change. Disappointed.

        Helps with my acne scarring and redness

        By 

        from Ontario

        Comments about Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector & Optimizer:

        I've only been using this product for less than 2 weeks now but I already see a difference in my skin. I've used the original Even Better Dark Spot Corrector Serum for past acne scars and it works really well to fade them. Since I recently have a few new acne scars, I decided to try this one out for a change.

        I notice that as soon as I apply this serum to my face, it helps relieve the small redness I have around my cheeks and nose. I see small improvements in my acne scarring, but assuming that this is the same formula as the Original Dark Spot Corrector, my acne scars will fade with time. Also, considering the time frame I've been using this product, I think it's done a decent job.

        If you're deciding between this serum and the original Dark Spot Corrector; if you're looking to help fade dark spots/freckles/acne scars, I would recommend the original Even Better Dark Spot Corrector. If you're looking for a more even, brighter skin complexion, while also improving dark spots/freckles/acne scars, I would go with this one.

        As for the complaints with the pump, so far I haven't had any issues with it. I do agree that it pumps out more product than what I would like, but I don't feel like it dispenses so much to the point where I feel like it's being wasteful. For reference, I only pump once.
