After reading my review of Lancôme Dreamtone and seeing several up close face pictures during my Mary Kay makeover you may have realized just how white I really am – skin tone wise. I was not blessed with the ability to tan easily (being half Mexican you would think that would come natural to me). I, however, took after my father’s red headed genes and not my mother’s basking in the sun type skin. Sad I know.
One thing that seems to go along with white skin is burning and the ability to create those dark spots called freckles. I don’t tan but I sure do get a lot of those buggars on my nose during the summer months.
Ageless Derma Anti-Aging Intensive Skin Brightener ($49) will surely be able to help lessen these spots once winter passes and I am outside more regularly (my freckles lighten in the winter). Why you ask? Well, the whole purpose of Ageless Derma Anti-Aging Intensive Skin Brightener is to lessen the appearance of dark spots and even out skin tone. Any type of dark spot. This can be freckles, age spots, liver spots – whatever kind of dark spot you have.
I have only been using Ageless Derma Anti-Aging Intensive Skin Brightener for a few weeks now and am just starting to see it’s effects. Over time though, the combined effects of extract from the licorice root, a form of natural Vitamin C, Mulberry Grape Juice, Belides taken from the Daisy Flower, and Alpha Arbutin are able to lighten, brighten up damaged uneven skin.
The redness in my cheek areas are not quite as bright as they used to be and my already lightened freckles are even lighter than before. I will be able to see the true test of this product during the summer months when my freckles are beaming.
Ageless Derma Anti-Aging Intensive Skin Brightener is package in a simple black box with all of the needed instructions printed on it. Within the box is the nifty Ageless Derma Anti-Aging Intensive Skin Brightener bottle. I say nifty because I just love the pump mechanism on this product.
With most pump type products you never really know how many pumps you will need and often pump too much or not enough – not with the Ageless Derma Anti-Aging Intensive Skin Brightener push down pump. All you have to do is push down on the top of the Ageless Derma Anti-Aging Intensive Skin Brightener container (the white disc) to dispense the perfect amount of product (that has a normal cream consistency that easily blends). It’s enough to dab on your troublesome areas and be on your way.
The scent of Ageless Derma Anti-Aging Intensive Skin Brightener is not the best thing I’ve ever smelt, but not that awful either. If I had to compare it to another scent it would be somewhere between sunless tanner with a hint of some kind of moisturizer smell. It dissipates quickly so it’s nothing I was too concerned about.
The things I loved about Ageless Derma Anti-Aging Intensive Skin Brightener was that I was not allergic to it (I have sensitive skin), the cool pump, it works well with other facial products, and how it’s starting to even out my skin tone (I’m sure greater effects will be shown in time). I do wish the smell was better but I will live. I much rather have to smell a burst of this than the cinnamon type smell of my Shielo complexion moisturizer. It’s just hard me to put a pastry smell on my face. Just weird to me. And kind of gross.
Do you tan easily? Do you have any dark spots? Do you blame them on the sun? I know my grandmother does.
