Strongest points
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

White cream, easy to see application on skin.

Price!
This twist/pump application is decidedly fiddly at the start up..more twists than expected before products actual appears on the sponge.
Summary
I decide to start using this product, which I got to trial, once I knew I could dedicate time to using as require.
I applied at night, which was easy ( after getting the applicator pen to dispense the cream, an endless process of twist and click, infact I began to think my application pen was broken)the cream has a slight silky texture in its appearance. It's also white, which does help in seeing the placement of the cream on the skin, I imagine clear gel would have been less effective. It's hard to say just how much you should put on each spot or area. I decided to be cautious, as I didn't want any irritation. The cream is smooth, no scent, and blends in really well, however it does sit on the skin until dry, with a sheen that comes across as silky like the texture. Using it at night, was easier as I normally read, therefore allowing it to dry. Daytime application is more complicated, due to normal day to day routines, my hand always seem to be in water or cleaning, or lifting and laying. This makes the drying more complicated as it tends to take a while and therefore can end up being rubbed of if a residue is still there. So far my 'age spots' are few, but they seem gentlier in colour..or maybe I am seeing more of a result than may actually exist. None the less I will continue till the pen is finished, which will be sometime away as not much is needed, so hopefully with the treatment and the spf 50, 'age spots' will be paler and not resurface. As for price, alittle pricey, only time will tell if its worth it.

Summary
My first impression when I received this was mixed. I really liked the easy to use, pen like applicator - you simply twist the top and the product comes out at the other end through the foam tip. You just dab on affected areas to apply. I did not like the packaging or branding so I took the plastic sleeve off the pen and it was just a clear tube with the white product clearly seen, which looked much nicer among my other products. I think the name and branding is a bit naff and teenager-ish, but that's just my opinion.

It says to apply on cleansed skin and once the cream is dry you can apply your usual moisture on top. This is where I had issue. For me this did not sink in at all. If I just dabbed the product on it sat there (for hours) as a shiny, sticky mark. After a few days of this I applied as usual but then rubbed in into my skin thoroughly. Even after this it still left a slightly tacky sheen wherever it had been applied. I didn't like this. It also smells, to me, like PVA glue and it certainly was very sticky. This didn't bother me as you can't smell it on the skin once applied, but thought it worth mentioning.

I used this morning and night for the first couple of weeks. As I really didn't like the shiny marks it would leave I then used it for the last couple of weeks just before bed on bare skin. All in all the amount of product lasted just under 4 weeks for me.

The results are slight but not remarkable enough for me to purchase again, even with the generous discount. I also used this is conjunction with Garnier's Anti-Dark Spot Moisturiser and Nivea's Age Spot Moisturiser so I think the combination of all products has seen an overall improvement, albeit slight.

I've really enjoyed trying this, however, I still have brown sun spots so I continue my search for something to remove them.

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!

A good, natural alternative to fading pigmentation.

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.
