Clinique Even Better Skin Tone Correcting Moisturizer SPF 20 Review

Clinique Even Better Skin Tone Correcting Moisturizer SPF 20

Hello beautiful girls! Hope you all are doing well.

This is the second product I will review from the Clinique Even Better Skin Tone Range.

I have already reviewed the Even Better Skin Tone Corrector in my previous post. I got this moisturizer along with the corrector for the added benefit. This is the last step of my day skin care routine.
After the Clinique 3 step CTM I apply my skin tone corrector on the affected parts of face. Allow it to get absorbed and follow with this moisturizer.

What Clinique has to say about this product?

Imagine if you could virtually erase discolorations and dark spots to create more even skin tone gently, visibly, measurably, while protecting skin from future darkening with high-performance defense, UVA plus UVB. Within 4-6 weeks, this daily moisturizing cram creates a more even, corrected skin tone. Strengthens skin’s resistance to darkening with barrier repair. Instantly hydrates, brightens, clarifies. Apply A.M. For faster results, use with Even Better Skin Tone Corrector.

What is so different about the Even Better Skin Tone Correcting moisturizer?

Hydrating cream uses the same patent-pending approach of Even Better Skin Tone Corrector to create a more even skin tone. Provides high-performance sun protection, UVA plus UVB, and barrier repair to help prevent future darkening. For faster results apply A.M over Even Better Skin Tone Corrector and follow with Even Better Makeup SPF 15.

When will I start to see results?

Lots of variables affect how quickly you’ll start to see results-degree of pigmentation, medications, stress and UV-exposure all play a part. Generally, it takes 4-6 weeks to see measurable improvement. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Within 1-2 weeks, skin becomes brighter, feels hydrated, comfortable.
  • Within 3-4 weeks, your complexion starts to look more balanced and dark spots are visibly diminished.
  • Within 5-6 weeks, skin tone is dramatically more uniform. Clarity and radiance restored.
  • Stay with it, and you’ll keep seeing results. Sorry, but freckles are forever.

My take:
When I started using this product, initially I found it very greasy. The Clinique SA had promised me its oil-free. So I was really disappointed. I called her up and discussed my problem. She pointed out that I must be using too much of the product. This may be the reason for the oiliness. Ahhh…and she was absolutely correct. When I reduced the quantity I applied no more oiliness. In fact my skin felt smooth and soft. I have religiously used all the five products of Clinique for over 5 months now. After using this moisturizer along with the Corrector my pigmentation problem has reduced to almost 80 %. So I am really happy with this range. I don’t need any extra sun screen as it has SPF 20 and also I don’t have so much sun exposure.
This is the amount I have used till 5 months. You can see its just less than half finished. So still more 6-7 months to go. I guess by then my pigmentation would be gone to try out other moisturizers. Till then this is what I swear by!

Swatch of the product.

CLinique Even Better Moisturiser

After my Clinique 3 step CTM routine, I use Even Better Corrector. Let it absorb for a minute. Then I apply this moisturizer. The amount of product required is very small. I use a q-tip to dab some amount. Just make small dots all over my face with finger-tips. And spread it lightly. Within few seconds all of it is absorbed into my skin leaving a smooth, velvety, radiant skin. :))

  1. Just the review I was waiting for!! Thank u Jinal..Just one query though..!Whats your skin type..and what kind of pigmentation are you targetting??Does the product help with acne spots as well? ?:) ?:)

    1. You welcome Anupam.
      Basically I am targetting hyper-pigmentation around my mouth and jawline…the cause I can relate to is stress and sun exposure.
      I have oily/combination skin type. And yes this helps reduce acne spots too. Do try their blemish CTM skin care range specially for acne prone skin. And then this product on top for blemishes. Hope it works for you too. :yes:

  2. Thts a gr8 review.. this had been on my to-buy list for long but before i could i discovered african black soap which helped out with my pigmentation to a gr8 extent.. glad its working for u :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:

      1. I found this info on coastal scents site : Coastal Scents black soap is the original thing! It is imported from Ghana where it is hand pressed and processed by women in a small village in Ghana. It contains no scents, preservatives OR chemicals.

        For centuries, Ghanaians have used Black Soap to help relieve acne, oily skin, clear blemishes and various other skin issues. It is known to help with skin irritations and conditions such as Eczema and Psoriasis as well. African Black soap has also been used to achieve beautiful skin. Africans have also used this natural soap for bathing and washing their hair. It’s excellent for removing make-up too! Black Soap will leave your skin soft and clear.

        Suggested Uses:

        Traditionally, African Black Soap has been used to treat rashes, acne, eczema, dandruff, body odor and much more. The African black soap helps keep the skin clean and helps against premature facial lines. It is great for showering, bathing, washing of the hair, face and the feet. Black Soap is recommended for the young and the old. Black soap leaves the skin smooth and soft & as a facial soap it is excellent for clearing acne.

        African black soap has been used in Africa for the treatment of rashes, ring worm, eczema and also as a natural hair shampoo to avoid itchy and dry scalps.

              1. I have got few eyeshadows….10 wala palette….Megashine lipgloss….and nail paint
                But I want so much more….and the cost here is too high when I check online….:((
                Round gloss is I avoid…I only like their megashine ones….they too smell like some strange cough syrup kind….but then just momentary. THen my nose gets use to and smell fades :lol2:
                I always see ur cherry culture wala post and think when will I get my own credit card to order it…. you know I have whole list of 90$ prepared… crazy! :stars:

                  1. yeahhh………..eyeshadows are nice and pigmented and many colors. Me eyeing on their glitter eyeliners and jumbo pencil. And few more things.
                    Me trying to get my hands on my BF’s credit card…bt he no allow as he no like make-up :(( ….so me trying to trick somehow 😛

          1. yes jinal u should try it.. i have been using for 10 days now and my skin tone has improved drastically. even the dandruff problem is was facing is almost gone and there is always conditioner to combat the dryness.. u actually feel cleannnnnnnn

            1. ohh thanx Yasmeen. this really sounds nice. Will try to order it with my 88 palette from CS. It is multi-purpose kind of soap. :))

              1. yeah that too with no make-up on…..he says I look innocent with-out make-up O:) and with it I look devilish :devil: :panda: :$

    1. yeahh high price….but worth it if you suffer from something that bad no! :happydance:
      yeah me loving the new smileys :jiggy2:

  3. Jinal………………..great review…….your pigmentation got reduced by 80% 😯 😯 …………its a product worth putting so much money into :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes:

    1. yes Jomol… did wonders!
      I hope after few weeks I could say it worked 100% for my skin……I wish my problem gets solved completely…atleast before my marriage gets fixed :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

  4. rachana, but price should not be an issue i guess…..since Jinal says it lasts for more than 7 months….so that means if you are using other creams that lasts you only one month or two…and costs 700 to 800……then this one is much much better na
