  • Clinique’s Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector & Optimizer


    did you know?

    If anyone asked me about Clinique, I would say I loved how they have educated women on taking care of their skin starting with the 3 most popular skincare products used in every living breathing women's skincare regime. I'm talking about the 3-Step Skin Care System. Watching my aunt use Clinique since young, I never forget how the products seemed so "cool" with the capital C. To best describe "cool" in the eyes of a 10-year old, I saw Clinique as a trusted professional brand for women. The fact that my aunt a U.K nursing graduate (back in the old days colonial zaman) was using Clinique made me admired Clinique.

    Like every lil' girl who mimpikan she grow up fast so she can wear lipstick, I wished I would be able to start using Clinique. This is a true story that I am sharing from my memory as a 10-year old.

    the new, even better Clinical
    Dark Spot Corrector & Optimizer

    Who knew after I have grown up, I would be using Clinique? I have been testing the newly revamped dark spot corrector called Clinique’s Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector & Optimizer. It's a duo pump canister product that yes, you guessed it - holds the dark spot corrector and optimizer serum separately. With only one pump, it dispenses the serum out where you mix and massaged onto your skin. One pump is all you need day and night. It's fast absorbing, lightweight, non-greasy serum that weirdly, smells like bread to me. No residues on my pillows too.

    P.S: Despite what the product usage says to pump 2 - 3 times. I find 1 pump was more than enough for me. Sold in 50ml @ RM375 will last you 1.5 months when used twice a day.

    it smells like bread, I kid you not

    My verdict? I am definitely liking what I see in my mirror after 3 weeks of religiously using this after I come back from Bali. My skin tanned during my trip which my boyfriend says is so sexy. Ang mohs think tanned skin is healthy and sexy while Asians think the world is coming to an end. I wasn't happy that my skin browned so I got on to using this product given to me by Clinique at their media launch to review.

    To my surprise, the yummy bread smelling serum helped me get back to my skin tone (face) in 3 weeks time. I am now testing it on my arms too in hopes that I could lighten the skin tone 1 - 2 shades lighter. Well if it works on my face, let's see if it works on my arm which is sadly mistreated by me. It's browned with pigmentation so yeah I am going to test this product to what it claims. 

    Glasshouse, Seputeh

    I love how Clinique styled up the place!

    Oh well, this is just a simple review from me. I actually intended to show you photographs like a paparazzi to unveil Clinique’s Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector & Optimizer held at the amazing new event space Glasshouse Seputeh. The event was centered around the green tea leaves and a Japanese tea master was even invited to perform the Japanese tea ceremony. Also called the Way of Tea, it is a Japanese cultural activity involving the ceremonial preparation and presentation of matcha (green tea). No surprise that the star ingredient is green tea but Clinique uses a different kind of green tea. One of the most expensive kind called gyokuro (jade dew) which is a shaded green tea from Japan.

    gyokuro leaves, the star ingredient in
    Clinique’s Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector & Optimizer

    green tea ice-cream and green tea brewing in the air

    I felt like I was transported to Japan for a while. Drinking green tea and eating green tea ice-cream. It was refreshing. Can almost make a tv commercial of a tanned shy innocent girl using Clinique’s Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector & Optimizer and whoosh, a wind of green tea bursts out. Her pony-tail gets blown and suddenly she's fairer than before. All refresh like a new Japanese princess.

    If you think my review is making you feel like you need this serum, check out Clinique Malaysia's Online Shop where you can purchase it and get freebies + free delivery. Else you can visit the nearest Clinique counter near you and get a sample and consultation done to see if you need this :)
    Dermatologist-developed to be safe, comfortable. Yet in clinical trials, the serum was comparable to a leading prescription ingredient in visibly reducing dark spots-a verified 58% improvement at 12 weeks. Suitable for all skin types. See results starting in just 4 weeks, with a visible reduction in age spots and acne scars. Also appropriate for backs of hands and chest, too. For more information visit www.clinique.com.my

      1. Woah! Yay high 5 auntie kitaorang! I have not used their cleansing brush yet. I have used Olay (affordable) clarisonic (pricey) and philips (pricey). I think the clarisonic system is more advanced than normal cleansing brushes frm Olay but Clinique... I havent tried it to give my comparison.
