If you have acne-prone or melanin-rich skin, you’ve probably fallen victim to dark spots and hyperpigmentation at some point in your life. Although hyperpigmentation is natural, it doesn’t make it any less annoying to treat.
Luckily, there’s a great drugstore product that’ll help clear up dark spots. The best part? You can get it for less than $20 on Amazon right now.
The Neutrogena dark spot corrector helps renew skin by visibly brightening stubborn dark spots and skin discoloration. The serum contains ingredients like Retinol SA, vitamin C and hyaluronic acid, allowing it to add and lock in moisture.
“I bought this because someone said it was just like the Clinique Dark Spot Corrector (which is amazing), but this one is cheaper. I am happy to report that this works just as well,” wrote one five-star reviewer. “You really do start to see a difference in just one week.”
Another reviewer who “rarely writes reviews” said they had to make an exception for this product. They wrote, “I’ve only been using it for two weeks, and my dark spots are fading already. Additionally, it has improved the texture of my skin, leaving it silky soft with no oily residue. I have combination skin, so that was important to me. I highly recommend this product!”
As always, we suggest you do a patch test first. However, the proof is in the pudding (or the lightening of dark marks).
