My skin-care journey.I have very oily skin acne -prone skin and because of the incessant break-outs I have developed quite a lot of acne scaring over the years, but I have always covered this up with make-up specifically Mac concealer and Liquid foundation. (I find they do a very good job in covering up and giving a flawless look)
I have always wanted to clear the spots but there are very limited options to clearing acne and dark spots without use of bleaching/toning creams. I did some research online on clearing hyper-pigmentation without using Hydroquinone/Mercury based products and saw some positive reviews about Clinique Even-Better-Clinical-Dark-Spot-Corrector and I said I will give it a go.

I have always viewed Clinique as very high end which it is I know it is certainly not mainstream. But I thought I might as well give it a try. Retail price in the UK is 42 pounds for a 30ml bottle, for a 100ml bottle this cost 100 pounds click Here for link.
Next challenge can I get it in Nigeria or do I have to buy and then pay cost of shipping to Nigeria. Then I remembered the Montaigne place at Ikeja city mall stock Clinique products.
Well I paid them a visit and bought a 30ml bottle for N25,000. The beauty rep suggested I also buy Clinique Anti-Blemish-Solutions-Clarifying-Lotion to complement this at a cost N5,000. This retails for 19 pounds for a 200ml bottle click Here for link for the product

The rep was really helpful and emphasized the need to use a face cream with SPF 15 to achieve best results and that I should expect to see results in at least six weeks of continuous usage.
I am to apply the spot corrector every morning and evening (2-3 pumps) after cleansing with the anti-blemish lotion. So far after three days of use my skin is really a lot softer.
Well I have my fingers crossed with this I will give an update 6 weeks from now which will be mid-November on results.
Thanks for reading
