Garnier Skin Renew Dark Spot Overnight Peel - to reveal brighter skin!

Discolouration, dark spots and hyperpigmentation - so ugly and aging - can be a thing of the past thanks to something new:

Garnier Skin Renew Dark Spot Overnight Peel - 50ml - $19.99 - a lightweight, silky treatment that contains a glycolic acid - (to accelerate cellular turnover and improve skin texture) and vitamin C - (targets dark spot intensity, reduces hyperpigmentation and brightens) complex that gently exfoliates overnight to smooth away dullness and discolourations, accelerating the rise of brighter skin cells to the surface.

It's simple to use, just apply a thin layer of the peel at night before you go to bed - avoiding the eye area - and it absorbs without leaving a film or residue on the skin. In the morning just wash your face as usual and don't forget your sunscreen - otherwise you're doing all of this for nothing!

Expect to see brighter skin after the first night thanks to the exfoliating action, a reduction in dark spots after 1 week and reduction in uneven skin tone after 2 weeks. What I really love is how smooth my skin feels in the morning - it's like I really did get some beauty sleep!

And if you really want to kick your dark spot's ass, use Garnier's Dark Spot Corrector during the day and you'll see fading results twice as fast.

Available in drugstores and mass retailers across Canada this month.

  1. can you use it also for dark circles under the eye?

  2. Nope - an eye product meant for dark circles like Garnier's eye roller is what you want for that kind of darkness!

  8. Do you put on your nightly moisturizer before or after?

    1. If you're going to wear a moisturizer as well, put it on after - you want the peel as close to the skin as possible so it can do it's thing!

      HTH!

  9. I still have some existing acne on my face... although it is going away (very very slowly though.. -___-). Can I still use this with an acne treatment (like salicylic acid) under it? My spots are kind of red though... not like brown. Those are acne scars I guess right?

    1. I don't think I would mix the two products - the red spots do sound like acne marks and I would use the two products separately, you don't them to react with each other and do something worse to your skin!

      HTH!

  11. O read somewhere that the dark spot corrector cream can cause breakouts.is this something I have to worry about happening when using this product?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I supposed technically any product can cause breakouts if it doesn't react well with you skin and that's pretty hard to know without trying it. You can always just try it on one part of your face to start and see how your skin reacts - at least that way you aren't breaking out all over!

      HTH!

  14. I use simple toner on my face st night. Can I use the toner then the peel?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. As long as the toner doesn't have AHA or anything like that in it then that's fine!

  17. Does this work on acne scars?

    ReplyDelete
  18. is this supposed to actually peel off me face in the morning? I'll wake up the next day and its almost gone? How much(in pumps) is enough for entire face?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 1 or 2 pumps is good for the whole face (unless you have a giant James Van der Beek head) and it absorbs into your skin just like any night cream will - there is nothing to peel off in the morning!

  19. Do I use this everyday? I usually put on serum and moisture at night, should I skip those steps or just use it after I put on the peel?

    Thanks :)

    1. I would just use the peel on its own unless you are very dry. I use it everyday but if you have another night cream you love alternate one day peel, one day cream - hth!

    1. Not a good idea to mix active ingredients so I would say don't!

  21. How do I use the overnight peel and the dark spot corrector as a combination?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Is there a certain cleanser to use before you apply the peel? Soap and water or just water? I have oily skin and it does not feel clean to me if i use just water.
