Strongest points
The packaging is the correct size for the product and it provided protection for when it was delivered by post. The cotton bud at the top makes the application onto the skin soft. The skin absorbs the cream easily making the skin hydrated in the sun along with the high SPF to prevent hyper pigmentation from occurring again. The value for money is great as it feels like a designer brand but is for half the price! The application is very precise, making the hyper pigmentation be treated quicker. As you need to turn the bottom to allow the cream to get out, it minimises the risk of accidental waste of cream.
Weakest points
You need to turn the bottom for a long time until the cream actually comes out so it isn't good if you're in a hurry and it can become tedious. You also need to use it twice daily for 2-3 weeks until you can visually see the difference. As it has SPF, its a daily cream so if you don't go out one day then there's no use in putting it on so the hyper pigmentation won't be treated as effectively as it should be.

This comes in a strange applicator. you twist one end and the cream comes out of a tiny hole in the middle of the spongey applicator end. the problem is that it takes a while so none comes out after one twist and you wait. then it keeps coming out for some time afterwards so there is always a bit leaking from the end.

I would personally prefer a small tube like an eye cream as an applicator as i think it is needlessly complicated and an excuse to put only a tiny amount in the container.

It does work slowly and has reduced mine and my husband's age spots on our hands. Mine more than my husband's as they were not as bad and I was better at applying it regularly.

The container needs a rethink but the produc t is good

I had trouble with the delivery of my trial but now I have got it I can say that it doesn't reduce discolourisation but it does protect and help heal - I used it on a few scars and they sseem to be getting better
Weakest points
can be greasy
Summary
good protection with SPF50 but not sure how effective it is at reducing the discolouration - I think you would bneed to use consistently for at least 6 weeks, but it does seem to aid the healing process. Prevention is better than a cure

Fades dark spots.

Applicator a little awkward to use, needs regular application to be effective.
Summary
This product comes in a slim pen-like form with a twist base, similar to some shoe and foot cream applicators. It is hard to gauge how many twists to make in order not to over dispense the product as it takes some time for the product to appear on the sponge applicator tip. Due to the time taken to apply the product as a result of the applicator, it is not a product which is used quickly each morning and I found it difficult to integrate this into my morning regime without much time wastage. I felt a fine-nozzled tube would have been a more effective applicator for dispensing.

The product itself requires a little massaging to enable it to smooth away into the surface of the skin, but it didn't cause any irritation to my sensitive skin, especially as it is suffering the ravages of bad weather conditions at the moment and more prone to reaction. This was pleasing, as I fear many of these kinds of products contain bleaching agents which may be harsh on the skin. This product fades spots over time, and would be more effective with dedicated use.

While I'm happy to have had the opportunity to trial Spotner's, I can't say I've noticed any appreciable difference in my hands. The high SPF (50) is helpful to prevent the development of more discolouration or the worsening of what you may already have, but that's really all the benefit I've had from it.

Pigmentation is a difficult condition to correct with the over the counter products. Your best bet is to be vigilant about preventing it to start with. Make it a habit ladies!
