I bought this to correct the dark spots and discolorations that I have on my face from spending so much time out in the hot desert sun when I was a young child. I have a lot of areas on my face that the color changes from one to another and many areas that are really dark little blotches, I just wanted something that would help to even out my skin tone. I was recommended this Avon Banishing Cream Skin Discoloration Improver by a friend who sold this stuff and guaranteed to me that it worked and that it was oh so amazing and evening out your skin. It is really easy to use and I tried it for a couple of months before I decided that it was not worth it to keep on spending the money on it when it does not do anything for me. I did not ever notice any difference in my skin, it looked exactly the same as it did on the first day that I used it. This actually made me also get a lot of black heads after I started using it, so it did not do much for my face to help, but only made it worse.
