The #ProductEmpties We Loved to the Last Drop
From new finds to longtime favorites, these are beauty products that our editors use until the bitter end (of the tube)
While there are hundreds of brightening products out there that claim to fix a spotty complexion, I've never had any real results until the day Shiseido White Lucent MicroTargeting Spot Corrector, $130, made its way across my desk. This lightweight serum sinks into my skin like a dream (keeping my morning routine quick), and zaps dark spots and acne scars within just a few weeks. Truthfully, I noticed a brighter complexion after just one week of devoted use, and after a month my skin was flawless, even and radiant.
Shiseido's MicroTarget technology targets each blemish and blurs their appearance. Meanwhile, the other active ingredient, SAKURAResist Technology (made from Japanese cherry blossoms), helps to minimize the appearance of future dark spots, creating an overall even and brighter complexion now and in the days to come (because lord knows old habits die hard). I apply the brightening serum in the morning between my cleanser and moisturizer, and again in the evening. The results? A glow so radiant, I had friends asking me if I recently had a facial. --Jessica Amaris
