I'm 47 with sensitive skin, dark spots, dry skin. Amazing results in just a few days!! Face is illuminated, but not greasy or overly shiny. I've stopped wearing foundation!! My skin has a healthy, natural, even glow. Improving daily. I've been using at night with the L'Oreal Midnight cream and day with the L'Oreal collagen cream. I can't use retinol or stronger products. I use differin adalepene gel every other night with this serum and find it is an excellent combination for my very sensitive skin. Very pleased with this product!!

I have an olive complexion and did not use sunscreen the first half of my life, so I now have a number of dark spots I am trying to correct and mitigate with daily sunscreen. For 2 full months, I used this product 2x day, along with Loreal's Youth Code Dark Spot Corrector Daily Moisturizer with SPF and not a single one of my dark spots has lightened. Super disappointed, and also surprised that Loreal does not offer an empty bottle guarantee. Maybe because they know it doesn't work?

Hi there Gidget1288! We wish you could see all the results you were hoping for with the Dark Spot Correcting & Illuminating Serum Corrector. We can imagine how frustrating it has to be, removing years of dark spots. The process can take months to reverse for some. And its essential to keep the uneven skin well covered with a sunscreen to keep the dark spots from returning. If you would like to speak to us directly about your recent purchase, give us a call @ 800-322-2036 M-F 9 am-5:00 pm ET

For years I’ve struggled with dark spots and I’ve always been so embarrassed of it. I used to cover my face in makeup because I didn’t feel pretty without it. This product has helped me so much and I’m so thankful I found it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I have been using the Dark Spot Corrector for six months. Honestly In the first month I didn’t see a lot of difference but I didn’t get any new dark spots. Month two my spots really lost the darkness and faded to a much lighter color that looked so much better. I did not use the Serum. Six months so happy. My skin is very happy, soft and dark spot free. Great Product.

I tried this product to even out my skin, not to get rid of my freckles. I was noticing that my skin was making me look old and tried other products to moisturize and make my skin look healthier. After reading about a lot of products I decided to try this because it didn't say it would get rid of dark spots but, as I understood, minimize their appearance. What happened was that it blended my freckles with the rest of my skin and gave it a nice glow after using it only 2 days! My skin isn't normally dry but this made it look more hydrated so much healthier!

Like so many, because of the name L'Oreal I believed that this would work. I used it for eight weeks, and with each week, I became less hopeful that this product would work. Needless to say, the dark spots never changed from day one. I know everyone make up is different. However, we should all see some improvements of some kind. Watching the youtube videos with the hope of seeing a difference in a week, it never happened. Don't was your money; the product doesn' work. Save the name and remove this product or make changes to the product.

I love L’Oreal products. Their makeup and hair products are beyond this world. So I write this review with a heavy heart. I thought this Serum would work for me but it did not. It did nothing to reduce my dark spots. I had high hopes because I love (and still do love) L’Oreal products. I’m glad it worked for others and I’m also glad I was able to get my money back. I will continue to use other products by L’Oreal but I won’t use this again.

I love the way this lotion feels on my face but it has not done it’s job. No noticeable improvement in the dark spots after using for several weeks.

Hi Gail! Thank you for sharing your experience with our Youth Code Dark Spot Corrector Serum. We are glad you like the way it feels, even though you haven't seen a noticeable improvement. For best results, we recommend you follow a regimen using the full Youth Code line: first cleansing with L'Oral Paris Cleanser, then apply Youth Code Dark Spot Correcting & Illuminating Serum. Finally, moisturize with Dark Spot Corrector SPF 30 Day Cream in the morning and Skin Recharger Day/Night. We hope you try it again soon!

I ran out of my usual serum so I decided to raid my mom’s makeup case. I saw this bad boy and decided to give it a try and i’m glad that I did! It made my skin feel so soft and it made my tinted moisturizer and makeup go on like a dream, and I didn’t use Primer with it. I personally don’t have any dark spots but my mother says it greatly helped out her’s a lot. I can’t recommend this enough and it’s now part of my daily skin care!

Over the years sun spots are appearing more prominent on my face. I have tried quite a few products that claimed to treat dark spots yet didn't find any of them really useful. I saw some reviews about this product, L'Oreal Paris Youth Code Dark Spot Corrector Serum, and decided to give it a try. I use it at least once a day. I almost finished using the whole bottle now but actually started noticing the dark spots have somewhat been fading. Not totally though. Sometimes a product is very effective at the beginning but slowly loses its power once a body gets used to the ingredients. I have no idea if this product has the same issue. However, since I can't get this serum in any store, I decided to get a few when I was ordering it online. Hopefully it will work for a long time. Only time will tell.
