Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 704.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product this product leaves your skin smooth and the serum its easy to apply; the only thing is that my hyperpigmentation its really dark and I have to wait longer to start seeing the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Showed results! Ill start off by saying that I dont have a ton of dark spots, but I really did see results with this product. I used it on my cheeks where I had some hyperpigmentation and they faded slightly over the course of 4 weeks. Theres a lot of product in the bottle so Im hopeful that theyll fade away with consistent use!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Worth the $$$ I am more than half way through the bottle and I see no visible positive effect at all.
Date published: 2020-07-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome product This is not the only serum Ive tried so it makes it easier for me to compare and analyze its affects, properties, and results. Being said that, this product its pretty easy to use, it has a great smell, it has a nice texture and it dries really fast so your face doesnt stay sticky for too long, and results wise the product works but it takes time to see the effects of it; so for my type of personality I would like something that shows its results faster. Therefore I would not consider this serum for all kind of skins and people because I do prefer fastest and more notable results. Even though as I said before it does work and it does shows results. I also enjoyed how gentle this product is for the skin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from like! Ive been using this for a few weeks now and have noticed a big improvement in my skin. Not necessarily that it has faded any of my post acne spots any faster, but the overall appearance is improved. My skin is clearer and brighter. I have combo, sensitive, acne prone skin and have not noticed any adverse reactions. I can be sensitive to smells too and while this does have a scent it doesnt linger past initial application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this! Love this product, I can visibly see a difference between when I use this consistently and dont. I would def recommend to others. Its not a thick serum, its pretty thin. Doesnt have a scent.
Date published: 2020-07-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smooth but not gone I like how easy it was to apply it and that it didnt have any weird or sticky feeling after. It also smells nice. It really didnt take out the dark spots for me but maybe I just need to continue using it for a few more weeks. It did make my skin smoother though.
Date published: 2020-07-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing It did take a while for me to see a difference on my skin. I liked how it left my skin glowy and how it has a cooling sensation. Its a bit pricey so idk if i would buy again but I will definitely keep using it in my skin care routine

Does your product use hydroquinone in any of its forms? Even with different names?

I know that sometimes hydroquinone uses different names? Could you please verify if your product contains or not hydroquinone? I am highly allergic to it, and would like to try your serum.
