About City Dark Spot Corrector

Using “powerful enzymes to break up pigment deposits in your skin,” City Cosmetics Illuminating Dark Spot Corrector is claimed to brighten your skin, reduce the appearance of dark spots and discoloration, while also preventing additional dark spots from appearing. In addition, the product is claimed to “absorb quickly into discolored spots and scars,” and to instantly hydrate your skin.

As with City Lash and City Lips, Illuminating Dark Spot Corrector is manufactured by City Cosmetics based out of Salt Lake City, UT. The company holds an A- rating with the Better Business, with only one closed complaint over the past three years. Regarding the Dark Spot Corrector specifically, online customer reviews appear to be primarily positive, with the most common complaints citing failure to work.

How City Cosmetics Illuminating Dark Spot Corrector Works

In order to help your skin appear bright and full of vigor, City Cosmetics Illuminating Dark Spot Corrector is claimed to be the “most effective way to reduce the appearance of dark spots, age spots, acne scars, and more.” The product is claimed to use “only the most effective and innovative ingredients”

That improves your skin’s ability to reduce pigment by 25%, while the Sepicalm-S works to reduce irritation, inflammation, and associated redness. From a clinical perspective, City Cosmetics claims that the Illuminating Dark Spot Corrector has helped:

  • 86% of users achieve “significant spot reduction within 7 days.”
  • To noticeably lighten users’ skin in as little as two weeks.
  • “Minimize appearance of liver spots, lighten skin tone, and reduce skin's reaction to UV exposure.”

Unfortunately, no references to these clinical studies are available on the product’s website.

However, City Cosmetics claims that the Illuminating Dark Spot Corrector is “naturally formulated, hypoallergenic AND non-acnegenic,” which means that it can be used by women of all ages and skin types.

According to the product’s website, for best results you should apply the Illuminating Dark Spot Corrector twice daily (once in the morning and again at night), though you’ll need to clean and gently exfoliate all areas prior to applying. The company claims that the product can be used to target specific dark spots, or all over for “general skin brightening,” depending on your needs, and that most users will experience visible results within 2 weeks.

All City Cosmetics products are not tested on animals.

  • Claims to “minimize the appearance of liver spots, lighten skin tone, and reduce skin's reaction to UV exposure.”

    Pleasantly surprised

    • Marin County, CA,
    • Jul 2, 2015

    I purchased this without having high expectations due to the great reviews. Obviously not reviews on this site but on a different site. My décolletage area was super sun spotted/hyper pigmented to the point that I didn't like wearing anything that exposed that area. So that would be almost everything. I tried this product for maybe 2 to 3 weeks twice a day and the spots and hyper pigmentation have actually diminished. I am very pleased and will continue to use.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Worst rip off ever

    • Ohio,
    • Jun 20, 2014

    This product was expensive. I have a small dark pigmentation above my lip. I used this product faithfully for over 8 weeks. I also used it on other smaller areas. I did NOT notice any fading on any area I applied it to. This is the worst I've ever been ripped off. I definitely would NOT recommend this product.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
