I have always struggled with hyperpigmentation and pesky dark spots on the sides of my cheeks. Like many women of color, hyperpigmentation is a never ending battle. I’m constantly in search of products that will help eliminate dark spots and create a more even skin tone. I alternate between a few different products, but for the past few weeks I’ve been using Eraclea Skincare’s Reveal Advanced Skin Brightening Cream. This cream isn’t cheap at $95 per bottle. However, keep reading to learn more about it’s powerful ingredients.
This product was gifted, but don’t worry. I make sure I use a product for at least a month before sharing my feedback. So a little bit of background on this cream before I talk about what it did for me! The cream is packed with active ingredients to help discoloration and uneven skin tone. I was intrigued because the description said the cream helps the skin at the cellular level by targeting specific cells and helping to generate a more clear, healthy looking complexion. Some of the active ingredients that stood out to me were Niacinamide, Lactic Acid, Glycolic Acid, Retinol, Kojic Acid, Hyaluronic Acid, and Licorice Extract. All of these ingredients are highly effective in brightening the skin, improving texture and tone, and generating cell renewal. That‘s probably why there’s a hefty price tag because you’re getting a lot of powerful ingredients all-in-one. Which is a major plus in my book.
When I received the product I was instantly drawn to the packaging. I am a package snob! Not only was the packaging sleek, it was also functional. The bottle includes a nozzle that you twist in order to reveal the pump. This is super convenient because the pump allows you to not waste any product. The cream also has a lightweight texture and is non-greasy. I also really enjoyed that the product absorbs into the skin very easily. I hate when it takes forever for a product to absorb properly. No bueno!
2 Easy Tips to Fade Dark Spots:
- Use a Vitamin C serum daily
Exfoliation has many benefits including; evening out skin tone, helping skincare products penetrate deeper, and unclogs pores. Regular exfoliation helps to reveal healthy and glowing skin which over time eliminates dark spots. I recently added a Vitamin C serum into my routine, and have noticed so many benefits. Vitamin C helps to brighten your overall complexion and helps fade hyperpigmentation. The two of these steps combined is a must when trying to eliminate dark spots.
How I Use These Tips While Using Eraclea’s Brightening Cream:
- Apply Vitamin C serum
- Apply 3-4 drops of Eraclea’s cream on my face and massage into neck as well
- Apply moisturizing sunscreen
So far the Advanced Skin Brightening Cream has gradually reduced my dark spots. I also have noticed an overall even, brighter tone. I am going to step things up a notch and use the cream in my AM and PM routine. I am confident that between regular exfoliation, using a Vitamin C serum, and the use of this cream, I will see great results by summer time!
