We all want clear and beautiful skin, but not everyone is blessed with it and with the pollution, today’s lifestyle and many other factors, it is rather difficult to achieve the same. Pigmentation, blemishes, pesky pimples and the dark scars they leave add to our woes. Today, I am reviewing a serum which claims to work on all these and the best part, this is a loving gift from IMBB. 😀 Loads of thanks to the whole IMBB team for this. 🙂 Let us find out if it really helped me in achieving clear skin or not. 😉

My Experience with Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum:
I am using this serum for almost 6 weeks now. Yes, this was a New Year’s gift from IMBB. 😀 I am planning to review it from so long but something or the other kept holding me. It is good in a way, now I can give you honest and elaborate review since I am using it for so long. 🙂
The packaging is also exquisite. No, it’s not just the serum bottle that I am talking about, but even the box it was couriered in was so elaborately packed, my hubby was surprised that there was so much packaging just for a single bottle. 😛
The serum comes in a beautiful royal blue bottle with a gold colored cap. The bottle has a pump attached to it. The pump dispenses enough quantity for a single use. The amount shown in the swatch is the amount dispensed in a single pump which is enough to be used on face. However. if you want to apply to neck as well, more quantity would be needed.
The serum is white in color and super lightweight which has a slight smell to it. The smell is very light and fresh but doesn’t stay and fades away as soon as the serum is applied. The serum spreads easily on the skin and does not feel sticky. It gets readily absorbed, does not leave any residue and leaves my skin soft and smooth. But I do follow up with a good moisturizer since I have very dry skin. The serum is good for sensitive skin and did not break me out.
The name is a bit misleading. Though it says “night serum,” the instructions say that you have to apply it both, in the morning and evening. When I started using it, I applied it only at night, for around a fortnight since I was not sure if I should use it in the morning or not, but then I gave in to the instructions and since then using it twice daily, layering up with a sunscreen in the morning.
The serum really works. 😀 I am loving it. I have seen visible difference in my skin. After using for around one and a half months, I have noted amazing difference in the dark spots and acne scars and my skin has become brighter. The lighter scars have reduced to about 70% and the deep pitted ones to about 50%. This is such a big difference, I never thought any product could do such wonders. 😀 The spots have lightened tremendously and my skin’s overall appearance has very much improved. Also, it has helped my skin to recover from the sun damage. But yes, it has done nothing for the pigmentation around my mouth. 🙁
The serum contains an impressive list of ingredients which contains mix of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory extracts. The small bottle does seem expensive but a little goes a long way and even after using it for one and a half month, I have almost half bottle left which would last me another 45 days or so. 🙂

Would I Recommend/Repurchase Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum?
Yes, yes and yes. For someone like me who is always suffering from breakouts and their aftermath i.e. acne scars, this serum is a blessing. The bottle is going to last me for at least another month, but I would be repurchasing it for sure after that. Also if scars, redness, sun spots etc are your problems, pick this up, you won’t regret. 😀
