- It's ridiculously expensive. Retail is $49.50 for one ounce of product.
- If you use this stuff morning and night, one drop all over your face, you'll use it up in about a month.
- To make matters worse, you can't tell when the product is running out, because the pump is opaque.
So even though this product makes me a little crazy ... I do think it works.
I'd like to spare you the sight of my creepy bits, so I won't be uploading any photos. You'll just have to believe me when I tell you that I have a dark spot about the size of Rhode Island on my left cheekbone. It is, I guess, the price I pay for being a fair-skinned automobile driver.
It was also the result of a cruel beauty establishment taking a couple of decades to get around to telling me that UVA rays
- penetrate glass
- do deep, invisible damage to the skin
- are not blocked by the standard SPF15 moisturizers I was using back in the 80s.
Anyway, I'm using a Vitamin C serum twice a day and this serum on top, and I do actually see an improvement. There is noticeable lightening of the spot.
There is also a noticeable lightening of my wallet. But at least I'm not left racking my brain for a Clinique product I can buy when I want to qualify for a GWP. Right?
Also, I've noticed that Clinique has introduced a new, larger size of this stuff. Which means I'm not the only person who thinks it works. And the new 1.7 ounce size sells for $73.00, which at least saves a little money.
