Dark spots, they’re like freckles, but bigger and sometimes they’re huge and not where you’d want them. For the last few years, my mom has brought up few times that her dark spots bothered her. Every time that I do her makeup for her the first thing she says is “can you cover my spots”. So I knew when I was contacted by SVR, I’d ask them if they could help.
So what exactly are “dark spots”. They are a hyper pigmentation which can be caused on the skin either by the scaring from acne, excessive exposure to the sun or hormonal changes. Now I personally have acne scaring, and one dark spot on the right hand side of my face. My scaring bugs me, but not as much as my mom’s dark spots bugged her, so I made her the guinea pig this time. Welcome to the first Mom Memos (I’m still working on the name for this).
My mom received the SVR Clairial Creme 10, which is said to diminish the appearance of extended brown spots. Spots that have been around for longer on the skin. It is also said to lighten and unify the complexion. The SVR Clairial Serum. This corrector is for all skin tones to correct brown spots and revive the skins radiance. I can go on and on about what the product description says, but I know you want to know her thoughts. Ladies & gentlemen, I present to you, Charmaine’s review:
“They absorbed beautifully. Left my skin soft and smooth. The consistence of the serum is very runny and hard to get onto your face as it runs off your finger. So I dotted small amounts around my face. The Creme was just the right consistency and there was no sticky residue after application.
My skin didn’t experience any side effects from use. I also loved the fact that the products carry no scent.
I really liked the packaging as it was easy to squeeze onto my finger, I hate putting my fingers into a pot of cream to apply it. It gets under your nails and makes a mess.
I would say that a little goes a long way. I would put a bit about the size of a small pea on my finger and place 3 dots on my forehead. I would repeat this with each cheek and my nose and chin. I then use my fingers very lightly to cover my face. Did not rub it in at all and found this worked very well with both the serum and the Creme. I found that it really made my skin feel smooth and soft. And it also gave me a slight glow.
You know I love to share the love, and SVR has been super kind and giving one of my epic readers the chance to win an SVR duo worth over R1000!
