Is Garnier Dark Spot Corrector safe for all skin types, particularly for those people with sensitive skin? I’m going to find out, but first, I am going to orient myself with a product that nearly everyone is talking about. The Dark Spot Corrector can be considered a moisturizer, but it also serves the purpose of reducing or eliminating dark spots that resulted from aging, sun damage, acne scars, and hormonal fluctuations.


The Perks Of Vitamin C

One of the main ingredients of the Dark Spot Corrector is Vitamin C (ascorbic acid), which has been proven clinically to zap the dark spots and eliminate them for good. We’ll see about that. The product is also easy to use. Just squeeze the tube and apply the product directly on your problem spots. You can even use this product under makeup as it is absorbs quickly into the skin and is non-greasy.


Positive Reviews Of Garnier Dark Spot Corrector

I am glad to talk about positive reviews of this product. One user says the Dark Spot Corrector is effective and points out that the metal tube keeps the ingredients potent and active. The price is also affordable (ranging from $15 to $19 on various websites). She has noticed a glow to her skin and the dark spots resulting from her acne have faded. She’s certain that the Vitamin C had something to do with that.

Another user also indicated positive and glowing results. She previously used Ponds face cream to treat her acne/hyper-pigmentation marks to no avail. Now she’s using the Dark Skin Corrector by Garnier, she reported results after a few days. It takes longer on older spots, though. Her skin is sensitive, but she’s using it without any breakouts on her face. So, it’s easy to say that the Dark Spot Corrector is safe for sensitive skin. However, she finds the scent overpowering at times, especially when the tube is opened every time. She’s continuing to use it though, as the product makes her skin glow.


Negative Reviews Of Garnier Dark Spot Corrector

While many people rave about the Dark Spot Corrector, other users and reviewers do not see any reason to continue using the product. I came upon a review, which said the user says the product is effective. However, she stopped using it because of the methylparabens present in the ingredients list. Another user says the product is “pure garbage.” She was very disappointed with the product as it does not live up to its claim. After using half a bottle, the latest user says she does not notice anything with her skin – not even a faint glow.

Another user also has a negative remark about the Dark Skin Corrector and she used half a bottle of the product before stopping. She claims the product makes her skin quite oily and she’s seen no results on her dark spots even after three months of use. Her skin brightened slightly, though, but she did not purchase the product for its moisturizing purposes. The citrus scent is also quite overpowering.



Garnier Dark Spot CorrectorWhile I can say the product is safe for sensitive skin, I think this product may not be for me. People on a budget may find the Garnier Dark Spot Corrector useful because, for its price, they may find it relatively effective the product is safe for people with sensitive skin.
