Significant improvement in skin’s health

Needs extra moisturizer for dry skin
Unhygienic tub packaging
Clinique Even Better Skin Tone Correcting Moisturizer is not for dry skin, and I have dry skin, but I have been using it for eight months. Confused?
Well, I usually do not purchase anything which is not for my skin type. But during my purchase of Clinique Smart Night Custom-Repair Moisturizer for Dry to Combination Skin, I got free samples of this moisturizer. I guess the sales girl didn’t pay attention to the type of skin. Neither did I.
The first time I used it, it was drying, but I didn’t want to waste it. So I kept using it with an additional moisturizer. And trust me, I couldn’t un-see how well it was acting on my skin. It works great alone too, but since my skin is super dry, I need that extra moisturization.
I bought the tub packaging because I wasn’t aware of the availability of pump dispenser packaging. Otherwise, I would have gone for it. It smells like sunblock, but once it's on the face for a while, it fades away.
Anyway, after religious use for eight months, my skin looks more even, and the pigmentation I had is fading. I also get a healthy glowing look. I think that’s because I have dry skin.
It is pricey, but you get an enormous amount of product, and I just need a little of it to cover my whole face and neck. I am loving how great it is working on me. It is totally worth the price for me.

Improves skin’s quality
Takes time to show results
I've been using this moisturizer for about six months now, and over these months, I see that the quality of my skin keeps getting better and better.
To be honest, it is not a miracle-working skin lightening moisturizer. But it is making some changes to the way my skin looks. For me, it took at least 5-6 weeks to see an improvement.
Thought it took a while, with constant use I noticed the hyper-pigmentation on my face has lightened up considerably. Which I am pleased about. I think the key is to be constant.

Brightens the skin tone
Not effective on dark spots
I have used this product for three years and am very pleased with it. It is a very light moisturizer that absorbs beautifully and is not at all greasy. And the SPF works effectively.
I have not noticed any reduction in my dark spots, but I would say my skin tone is more even. I have very oily skin, and for my skin, this moisturizer is the best one I have tried. I use the moisturizer every day before I head out. Even after daily use, it lasts me around 12 weeks.

Leaves a film on the skin
I bought the one in a pump packaging because, any day, I prefer a pump over tub packaging. I have combination skin that gets oily depending on the weather. When I used this moisturizer, it left my skin with a horrible film over it which I didn’t like at all. It also smelled strong which is odd because it claims to be fragrance-free.
The pump it came in was nice, but it is a small bottle for the price. I won’t be repurchasing it again because I think I can easily get other effective moisturizers that will work better than this.
