Actual Product Pic:




My $0.02:

Texture & Scent:



This spot corrector is quite creamy (yet not as runny as the emulsion) and spreads easily on your face! The scent for this product is the faintest among all.

Packaging:



This spot corrector comes in a squeeze tube with a tapered tip, so you can dispense the exact amount you want! It's quite slim as well, so it travels well!

Price & Availability:
At RM300 (approx. US$88), i would say that it's very expensive. I, however, only use it on my freckles, so one tube can last me more than a year, so it's stilllll alright. :P It's available at all Lancome counters in Asia.

Usage:
Cuz it's so expensive, i only apply it on my freckles! Whenever i'm exposed to the sun the whole day (eg. a roadtrip or beach holiday), i just dab a generous blob onto my dots and the newly formed ones will disappear by the next day! :D

Product Efficiency:

Being half Shanghainese, I have fair genes that burn / pigment easily. My freckles used to be quite bad, but after using this religiously for 2 years, they have faded quite abit! I know they would not disappear got good (only laser does that! lol!), but i'd be happy if they can be faded further and do not get worse. The effects of this spot corrector can be seen from day 3 onwards!


Left: 2006, Right: Today :)

As you can see, the spots in 2006 are so black and intense, while the ones taken today are slightly lightened. I took today's picture in natural light, otherwise IRL, they're even lighter! Sometimes you can hardly see them if i have foundation / blush on! Of course, this is coupled together with a SPF50 PA+++ sunblock daily (SPF130 when i go on holidays / roadtrips) and avoiding the sun as much as i can.

In a Nutshell:

My HG Spot Corrector!! It's the only thing that has worked on my stubborn spots (believe me i have tried soo many lighteners, even 4% Hydroquinone which didn't work for me!!)! I can't live without it! :P

Likes: Effectively lightens pigmentations!
Gripes: Very expensive!
Repurchase: Within a heartbeat!! I can't live without it!!

Rating: 5 Stars! HG Stuff!!


Psssst: Lancome repackaged this as well:



But no worries, the ingredients, amount and price are exactly the same! :)

  3. Hi, i just purchased the lancome x3 whitening set and i am so happy to have pondered onto your blog. your review of the product is exactly what i need. it's detailed and it really gives an insight on the product and it's not like a saleslady trying desperately to make a sale by saying how amazing the product is. your review is really well done. you give the pros and the cons. Thanks for posting your photos. the before and after gives me a good idea on how effective the product is. thank you for taking the time and effort to write this blog. your blog has given me hope and a glimmer of sunshine. I was a little worried this whitening system would not work and after spending all that money on the set, it's a good feeling to know you had good results. i will start my new whitening skin routine :)

  5. This does look cool, but does it work in lessening the acne scars (those pigmented scars, some red some darker ones)?? This is an old post, not sure if you'll see this piece comment.... =X Anyway, hope to hear from you =D

  6. Hi Do you have to use the spot corector with the other Lancome products or does it work all by itself?
