Your skin deserves a lot of credit. For an organ as thin and easily bruised as your skin is, it protects the body rather well. Yet, it’s also fair to say that skin can turn unattractive at times, especially when dark spots appear. The result of a process called hyperpigmentation, these small dots can be the bane of  people’s existences. There are lots of reasons these dark spots appear, including pregnancy, the remnant of a long-ago popped pimple, and of course too much sun. 

Regardless of their origin, dark spots are annoying, and odds are, you’ve already researched your fair share in hopes of getting rid of them. We have as well, and what we found is a product you might know about: the Neutrogena Rapid Tone Repair Dark Spot Corrector Face Serum. 

Now the name might be a mouthful, but we think that for the budget-minded, this product is as close to a dermatologist-conducted treatment as you can get, and you don’t even have to leave your home. 

For one thing, it’s developed by a dermatologically trusted brand, one that is also leading the line in other skin care product offerings.

Made to fit your daily routine, this face serum features the same accelerated retinol SA, hyaluronic acid and glucose complex combo that you’ve come to expect from other Neutrogena skin care products, only this one has the added benefit of Vitamin C -- which research says is a big add. This way, not only is your face protected from discoloration and dark spots, but the skin stays moisturized, plump and healthy. Best of all, the product’s gentle formula makes it ideal for every skin tone, so everyone has a real chance to be rid of stubborn dark spots and post-acne scarring. 

But does it live up? Well, after looking at top websites that carry this product, we weren’t surprised to see so many 5-star ratings and glowing reviews for it, with satisfied users claiming their skin showed signs of dark spots fading in as little as 2 weeks Others heaped praises for making their skin “silky soft.” 

People who deal with allergies also need not worry, as a number of users also said that there’s no skin irritation, even when used under makeup. Customers also said that there’s no sign of it being greasy and that it “smells lovely.”

Because of these reasons, we’ve reached our assessment that the Neutrogena Rapid Tone Repair Dark Spot Corrector Face Serum is easily one of the market’s best offerings, and a serious contender to add to your skin-care routine.
