Here's what I thought...

"This product is a treatment designed to lighten pigmentation. The packaging is simple yet attractive; it comes in a 30 mL squeezable white tube with a silver lid. This product is fragrance free so it has no detectable scent.

I received the Avene D-Pigment Light Dark Spot Lightener for normal to combination skin and it gave my skin a lovely matte finish after application. There is also another version of this product which is designed for dry skin which is called Avene D-Pigment Rich Dark Spot Corrector.

It has a soft and smooth texture which makes it very easy to apply and massage into my skin. It is a silky, lightweight formula that is quickly absorbed. I have been using this treatment every evening for over 3 weeks now and I have noticed a considerable improvement in the pigmentation on my cheeks. The pigmentation has faded and the skin is looking more even toned. I am really happy because I am now much more confident in my own skin when I am not wearing any makeup. It is also now taking me less time to apply my makeup in the morning as I don't need to spend as much time concealing my pigmentation.

I have included a before and after photo of the pigmentation on my cheek so that you can see the difference. I would happily recommend this treatment to others who are looking for a product to help lighten their pigmentation and even out their skin tone."

Would you buy it? Definitely

"I first started using this product every night before going to bed and would apply my night moisturiser over the top of it. I wasn't noticing much change at all and then checked with Avene about the correct application and they kindly informed me that for the best results that you should wait at least 15 mins after applying the D-Pigment before you apply moisturiser. So I changed my routine around and made sure that I gave it at least the 15 mins before applying my moisturiser. Some people can happily just apply the D-Pigment and not worry about a moisturiser but my skin loves its hydration. I found the cream had very little scent and was absorbed into the skin almost instantly.

Of course the big question is 'Does this product do as claimed?' ... I suffer with Rosacea so have redness issues which meant that I had problems trying to get photos that would actually show you the dark areas of colouration so you are just going to have to believe me when I say that I had one area that I really felt would not be changed by this product at all and it didn't appear to be changing and then I woke one morning and was shocked that overnight it had almost faded completely. I used this product on the backs of my hands as well but I'm noticing that the dark areas are being a bit more persistent and have only faded slightly.

I will keep using this product and feel that it is something that is worth trying but please keep in mind what Avene said and that is not to apply moisturiser for at least 15 mins."

Would you buy it? Probably

"I have to admit I have used Avene products in the past and I am a fan. I think quality-wise they're a level above most.

What I loved: The texture was very rich which made it very easy to apply to my dry skin. I also found that a little bit goes a long way. Being the Avene D-Pigment Riche variety, it didn't dry my skin out at all. In fact I found it hydrating and didn't feel the need to apply moisturiser after application. It absorbed fully into my skin although it took a good five minutes. My skin seemed to agree with this product and I noticed a change in its texture. It left my skin feeling soft, smooth and renewed. I loved using it! It does contain small amounts of retinol which I have had issues with in the past, however I have no sensitivity issues or redness with this product.

What I didn't love: The results aren't hugely noticeable, well not yet anyway. Regarding the reduction of dark spots, I think the results have been minimal at best. It's hard to say though the product's claim is that you'll see results in three months so I've been using it for 1/3 of that time.

I will continue using this product simply because it contains quality ingredients and my skin feels great with its use. Time will tell if the persistent pigmentation begins to fade. "

My name is ... Anita Rutter

And I have/am ... Fair and sensitive/dry skin

I just tested ... Avène D-Pigment Riche

"My first impressions of the Avène D-Pigment was the nice packaging, I like the tube and how easy it is to control how much product you squeeze out as well as not contaminating the product inside (I really don't like jars for this reason), the product doesn't have a strong smell and has a nice creamy texture, rich but not too heavy and felt enough moisture as a night cream for my dry skin.

I have been using this product for exactly 4 weeks and although the lightening of my pigmentation isn't overly obvious at this point I have noticed slight fading of the fine freckles on my top lip line (which is one of my main concerns) and I usually mark for a very long time from any blemish or insect bite but there was a spot I had above my lip in my before photo and it faded really quickly.

I feel the product is effective at fading pigmentation while still being very gentle on the skin...I react to a lot of skincare and now normally use natural products as I often get rashes from products due to fragrance etc but the Avène D-Pigment Riche has been lovely on my skin. I will definitely keep using it and be patient with the results.

Please ignore the spots and redness in my after photo ... I got attacked by Mosquitos a couple of nights ago and the redness is because I just washed my face Roadtested: Avene D Pigment Dark Spot Corrector | skincare make your mug glow feature beauty 2  pictures "

"Thank you DDGD and Avene for allowing me to trial this innovative and effective product. I was so excited to be included in the trial. I'm 44 and have maturing/ageing skin that is suffering from pigmentation, dryness, fine lines and wrinkle, unevenness - quite a mouthful there. I started using this as soon as I received it, which was around the beginning of March....to begin with I began using the D-Pigment every evening on my facial skin, in areas where my pigmentation was at its worst.

The cream itself is very thick and pale orange in colour, it has an odd scent - but it's subtle. It takes a bit of massaging to absorb the cream completely. I was applying the cream nightly for around 4-5 nights with no problems whatsoever but then on the 5th /6th day my face became very sensitive and even applying my Rose Hip Oil in the morning stung my skin in the areas I had concentrated the D-Pigment. I was extremely happy when I received the email from DDGD suggesting we might have a bit longer trialling the product as I had to stop using it completely until the sensitivities went away, which took 4 days for my facial skin to return to normal.

When I began using the D-Pigment cream once again, I changed my application to every 3rd night for a couple of weeks and my face handled that well. By the end of 3 weeks of use I had noticed a decrease in the intensity of my main pigmented areas (which are around my cheek bone on my right hand side and up that area between my eye corner and temple....I have large brown discolouration which I find difficult to cover up).

Through the course of April up until now 12th May, I have moved the application up to every 2nd night and my face is still coping, with no bad reactions. I have found the product is extremely easy to use and convenient to add into your skincare regime of a night. I have been happy with the results as I can see a change - I look ....study my face every day, so I can see changes as they occur....and maybe the pictures don't show it...but I can see it. I especially notice now when I apply my foundation, my normal foundation is usually enough now to get a coverage of my pigmentation that I'm happy with and confident with. "

Would you buy it? Maybe, if it was on sale
