The Lancome Bright Expert Dark Spot Corrector was a great big fat disappointment for me, unfortunately. Skincare is definitely something that I don’t mind spending money on, and when I do, I have high expectations. I purchased the Bright Expert Dark Sport Corrector because I had some residual post-hyperpigmentation that I wanted to get rid of.
This product is considered a treatment, rather than a serum; and, it’s designed to “virtually erase dark spots” to “reveal an evenly radiant complexion in just four weeks.” Lancome claims that the treatment “is so powerful that an independent clinical study demonstrated even faster results for dark spot correction than the leading prescription ingredient.”
Sounds promising, I know. One thing to keep in mind with products like this is to have realistic expectations. Unless you resort to some serious treatment like laser, topical products take time and some major patience. I used this product for 3 months, and in the 3 months, I used the entire tube since I used it nightly under my moisturizer.
Application of this product is like a serum. Apply it all over your face, even if you intended on spot treating. The formula of the product is easily blendable and smooths onto the skin easily. It absorbs decently, but not quickly enough for me. The smell is light and fragrant, and certainly not offensive in any way. It wasn’t particularly hydrating but it did feel nice on the skin.
For the first few weeks, nothing happened. While some of the spots I was concerned with lightened, I don’t think it was because of the product — since I was expecting faster results with the product. I think many of my spots lightened because time had gone by, and through the natural process of skin exfoliation, the pigmentation lightened.
Overall brightness of the skin was evident but temporary, of course. The product did keep my pores clear and seemed to help with evening out of the skin tone somewhat, but the results were so subtle I can’t say that it really did much. For the price, this is expensive since you get so little that lasts for 3 months. And, since it didn’t appear to have done anything, I won’t be re-purchasing.
I wouldn’t recommend this product, and if you are searching for a product like this, the Lancome Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector did MUCH MORE — in terms of brightening, wrinkle-fighting, and pore-clearing. :)
