I received a sample of this serum from a subscription box and immediately started using it because I had acne spots on my face. After incorporating it into my morning and evening skincare regimen, especially during the day, and using it intermittently at night, I noticed that my skin became brighter and after about a week my acne spots started to disappear. I really like this serum and purchased the full size. After using it for about 2+ months, I still see that the acne spots are much lighter but still visible. This serum is suitable for all skin types. The main change I have noticed in my skin is that it has become brighter and the skin tone looks more even.
According to Sephora’s website, “Estee Lauder has taken color correction to a new level. This powerful serum improves uneven skin tone day and night, leaving skin looking and feeling completely fresh and hydrated. It reduces the appearance of dark spots, discoloration, blemishes and redness while improving skin texture. Tonight, wake up to the transformation of naturally radiant, even-toned skin”
This serum has made my skin more radiant. It does lighten dark spots and hyperpigmentation, but it takes time and patience to see results. The serum is safe to use during the day and at night. I never felt any irritation or any pimples with this serum. It is a very lightweight serum and once applied and gently massaged into the skin, avoiding the eye area, it absorbs quickly. I use two to three pumps to cleanse my face and neck.
My routine for using this serum is to
- 1) Cleansing (or double cleansing if you have makeup on your face)
- 2) Acid toning
- 3) Moisturizing Mist
- 4) Eye Cream
- 5) Estee Lauder Enlighten Serum (2-3 pumps) when my skin is dry from spritzing
- 6) Moisturizing Cream
- 7) Sunscreen (during the day)
Although expensive, it lasts a long time as the serum doesn’t need to be used a lot. I am very happy with this serum and plan to keep it in my serum staples.
