Idk about dark spot creams, but my Garnier dark spot corrector serum is something holy! I think it's Jesus' tears tbh.

IA about overpriced moisturizers, but some of us have such dry skin that we might have to pay a little more to get rid of the flakiness.

Hm! I've had a tester of that cream for so long now. I think I'll finally use it, seeing your review. LOL Chemical peels have gotten my skin in great condition when it comes to hyperpigmentation, but I'm not impervious to pimples so I still get a little dark spot here and there.

^^Sorry to hear that. Shea butter does that to my face. I can ONLY use it on my body.

EVCO does wonders for my skin. I put it on my face every night before bed and my skin looks so clear when I wake up.

I agree with some of the stuff they said but their choice in experts is sad. Several of these people are selling some service or consumer product. If they just stuck with the board member then it would have been a more reliable article.

I have had good results with Dr. Brandt peel system but I use it twice a week and it is no miracle peel. It helps fade dark spots unlike that crappy Garnier Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spot Correction rip-off.

Yeah I find that shea butter will get rid of fairly new scars but doesn't really do much for stretch marks.

You shouldn't put lemon on your face. It's too acidic and, over time, makes it harder for the skin to hold moisture.

I think some people can get away with cheaper alternatives depending on their skin type.
I use cheap(er) drugstore moisturizer because I have oily/combo skin but I can see someone with super dry skin needed to spend more.

Just like I can't mess with Garnier for my dark spots, but Clinique Even Better is my ish Heart
