Differin Dark Spot Correcting Serum: 1 Week Results
Even though Differin Gel didn’t work on my skin, I decided to try out Differin Dark Spot Correcting Serum. As the name of the product states, it helps to fade dark spots.
- Gradually fades discoloration, pigment, spots, and blotches
- Helps reduce the appearance of post acne marks
- Improves luminosity
The active ingredient in this serum is hydroquinone. It’s a ‘skin bleaching agent’. When people see, skin bleaching agent, it scares the living %!#& out of them. Also, the fact that hydroquinone is a very controversial ingredient. That’s a whole ‘nother topic though! As for ‘bleaching’, don’t worry about it, it’s not going to bleach the skin. From my own personal experience, it has never bleached my skin. Honestly, it’s the least effective ‘brightening’ skin care ingredient for me. That is why I choose not to use it until now. On my skin, hydroquinone doesn’t yield better results compared to good ‘ol Vitamin C. Keep in mind that this is just from my own personal experience. For someone else, it may differ. And I do prefer Vitamin C over hydroquinone on any given day. So why did I purchase Differin Spot Correcting Serum? I like to try out new products, lol. It would be cool if this serum actually gave me amazing results. The only way to find out is to try it out.
My 1 Week experience with Differin Dark Spot Correcting Serum:
I’ve used the serum for 1 week already. The serum comes out gel-like and clear. It’s not runny. It absorbs into the skin very well. I thought it would be heavier for some reason, but it’s not. It’s not sticky at all. It does have a chemical smell to it. It’s either you hate it or can tolerate it. I’m pretty neutral about it. After a week of using it, I haven’t seen any results yet. I’m hoping I will see results with continued use. There was no skin irritation or redness from using it. It didn’t break me out either. YES!! So I can keep this serum in my skin care routine. I can’t wait to see results if there’s any in the upcoming weeks! I’ll make an update after a month or when I’m done with the whole bottle. Stay tune for my updated review!
