Overall, I’m impressed with the results. Normally, I would never use a product that contains retinol during the day, because it makes the skin more sensitive to the sun. However, I wore a sunhat and sunglasses as much as possible while using Exuviance OptiLight Tone Corrector, and I didn’t find it to be as much of a problem as I thought.
One actual problem with using Exuviance OptiLight Tone Corrector during the day is that it exfoliates the skin a lot. I ended up with a lot of skin flying this way and that, which is great for the skin, but makes it difficult (and time-consuming) to apply makeup afterwards. I ended up having to rub it into my skin for a full 30 seconds or so, making sure all of the skin that was going to be exfoliated was, then applied sunscreen, then makeup.
I’d definitely recommend Exuviance OptiLight Tone Corrector to anyone with sunspots, though. It’s a solid treatment – so long as you can keep up with the sunglasses and a sun hat during the day, I say go for it, absolutely. [Read more: Full Exuviance OptiLight Tone Corrector Ingredients Analysis]
