Say Goodbye to Brown Spots!

Garnier Skin Renew

The last couple weeks I’ve been seriously thinking about seeing the dermatologist about the growing crop of brown spots on my hands, face and chest.  We’ve gone beyond the “beauty spots” theory and directly to the “sign of old age” reality.  In fact, cousin JoAnn, Jack’s sister, was talking about a woman in her 80s who had a boyfriend in his 60s, whom she had told she was 67.  They were talking of marriage.  JoAnn’s comment was “Wouldn’t her hands give her away? Or do you think she wears gloves all the time?”  JoAnn was referencing not only the wrinkles but the brown spots that seem to love our hands with progressing age.

A couple years ago, Gal Pal Dale had her spots removed and, at the time, I thought this was an unnecessary and painful procedure.  But after my conversation with JoAnn, it was all sounding very logical.

So you won’t believe this one! I just got my latest beauty tip for brown spots from cousin Jack. Now, everyone loves Jack. He’s very smart, he’s funny, he’s full of stories, he’s a lot of wonderful things, but — he’s not a Calvin Klein model. Over Memorial Day weekend, Jack excitedly shared his newest “beauty” secret, thanks to the woman in the cosmetics section at Walgreen’s.  Jack has found “spot remover.”  He tried it on several spots on his face, and it worked!  Brown spots and even scars from various motorcycle wipe-outs from his youth were gone.  His skin is now smooth and almost glowy.  He’s a happy guy!

So what’s Jack’s secret?

Garnier Skin Renew, Clinical Dark Spot Overnight Peel!  A light, odorless gel created for dark spots and dullness (I’ve got that and worse) the product goes on at night and is quickly absorbed.  Skin Renew actually seems to work. I’ve been using it for a week now and I honestly think my spots are lighter. Garnier promises that in four weeks, dark spots and discoloration will be diminished with skin looking more uniform and feeling smoother.  We’ll see, but if Jack can be considered as a trusted “spokesmodel,” I’m impressed with his results.

Garnier Skin Renew Dark Spot Overnight Peel is available at drug stores and the cosmetic area of most mass merchandisers.  Cost is appx. $17.  Garnier also offers a Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spot Corrector which neither Jack nor I have tried.  I can only vouch for the Peel.  Try it and let me know what you think.

The website, has chosen Meladerm by Civant Skin Care as its #1 Editor’s Choice for dark spot renewal, if you’re looking for other options.  I know nothing about this product but you might want to look at as a reference.  Unfortunately, the product in available online only and costs $49.99 for a 1.7 ounce bottle.  If you have used Meladerm, please post your thoughts below.

Here’s to a Spot-less Summer.
