Looks slightly creamy, but is really lightweight but absorbs effortlessly into the skin instead of having to continually massage it in. It does leave a slight sticky sensation but it goes off shortly without me noticing.

VERDICT: First of all, I am quite particular about the scent/fragrance for beauty products. Sometimes, certain stuffs smell weird but it works really good while those that smells so luxuriously rich ended up underperform on it's claims. But this Estee Lauder CyberWhite HD Advanced Spot Correcting Essence has this fairly nice scent to it that I can't quite tell what it's similar to. It's faint, but the scent is just nice. I can probably and closely compare it to being in a sunny field.

As this product claimed that it is created with the special needs of Asian skin in mind, since most Asian skin tone/skin color tend to gravitate between fair to medium or a.k.a Chinese to Malay/Indians since there are really fair-skinned Indians and I've seen a few of them myself. As such, if there's any dark spots on our skin, especially the face, it is actually more noticeable unless one's skin tone/skin color is more towards the olive or tanned skin, it might not be that noticeable at first glance. But still, nobody likes to have dark spots on their face no matter their age or skin tone/skin color, don't they?

Basically, I'm more of the pale variety, the type that spooks regular humans without intending to, therefore dark spots are even more visible on my skin than compared to someone who might have a regular skin tone/skin color. And despite the fact that I rarely sit out in the sun as it gives me migraines, getting even slightly tanned is out of the question. However, I do have dark spots in the form of acne and pimple scars that just somehow lighten up every now and then and then suddenly decides, "Nah, I'll just stay as a dark spot, so tired~"

With that in mind, I used this sample sachet with the sole intention of targeting on the uneven and discolored spots and dark spots on my face. As I literally use less than half a pea-sized and just literally focused on the spot itself, I found that my sample can last almost close to 2.5 weeks. After 2 weeks of using, some of my dark spots did lighten up a little bit but it isn't totally gone at all. However, it's easily covered up by really light makeup to the point it doesn't exist. Acne and blemish scars have also gradually lightened up, but still not totally gone. And once again, easily covered up with light makeup.

And parts of my skin, especially the forehead has these little bumps. These bumps have also started to look slightly smoother and the bumps not so visible which unfortunately cannot be covered up no matter how light or thick the makeup is. Technically, this product never promised to make dark spots of any types on your face disappear, in truth, it just claims to lighten them up by cleverly phrasing it. Hence, I wasn't too overly concerned even when my dark spots of any manner and type are still on my face, the only difference is that it's slowly lightening up, which I think is a bonus.


WHAT I THINK: It does work in lightening up dark spots of all types on the skin, but it does take time and consistent usage on a daily basis to really see the end effect.

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: This came with one of those goodie bags along with more goodies in it, if I do recalled correctly. If not, pop by any Estee Lauder counters and ask if they have sample sachets for this product to try.

Why not like my Facebook page at to be informed of latest samples I found, which is duly updated? Also includes updates to health, beauty & lifestyle tips at least once a day. It will definitely save you the trouble of having to hunt them down :)
