Mission Perfection Serum
Rated 1 out of 5 by yesterdaygirl from Mission perfection isn't like Vital Light serum This new mission perfection serum doesn't hold a candle to the Vital Light Serum. I see absolutely no benefit to the mission perfection serum -- and you use it up much more quickly than Vital Light serum. No perceptible benefit to the Mission Perfection at all. Nothing, and it isn't inexpensive. I have some discoloration on my face from melasma and the so-called groundbreaking serum has done nothing for it, except take a bite out of my wallet. Please say it isn't so that Vital Light serum is being discontinued!It is a big mistake to discontinue Vital Light serum. I will be searching other brands at this point if Vital Light becomes unavailable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rogue from Addendum to first review I forgot to mention in my first review that Mission Perfection is a corrector and not an anti-aging product so it performs differently as well than Double Serum and that is why you should use Mission Perfection in the a.m.and Double Serum at night; to get both benefits of skin correction and preventative aging. Secondly, you must use sun protection to ensure the best benefit of this skin corrector which is why it is suggested to use Clarins UV50 Sunscreen Multi protection for city dwelling and a regular sunscreen for beach dwelling (as we sweat and swim we need to reapply that there). Otherwise you will just go in a "cycle" of damage, treatment, damage, and so on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BkRani from Instant results! I am Indian with bad hyperpigmentation caused from Accutane and previous picking of acne. I use all Clarins products and this product instantly gave me results. It reduced my hyperpigmentation, making it easier to cover with make up. Its not all the way gone, obviously, but I can see results. It reduced redness all over. Hydroquinone 4% didn't even give me as good of results. Along with using other clarins products, my skin FEELS amazing and has better texture. Before, makeup wouldn't cover it well because the texture was horrible. This is smoothing out my skin, reducing the redness and hyperpigmentation and drastically improving my skin. Because I have such bad skin, I'm sure the results are more noticeable, but I really love this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bearlover from Clarins Mission Perfection Serum This is my favorite out of all the Clarins products I use. I have dark uneven patches on my face from sun damage and aging. I apply it every morning under my moisturizer...it has a beautiful refreshing scent, feels like velvet while applying and gives my skin that wake-up radiant look. So you now would like to know if it works for your skin discoloration....after 2 weeks of using it...my dark patches have lightened up giving my skin a smoother and even tone look. Clarins has become my everyday product...from cleanser,toner, moisturizers and their make- up. It has given my skin a younger looking skin...which makes this 52 year old thrilled!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Silli from Surprised it has such high reviews I bought mission perfection in June since my favourite serum (Bright Plus) was discontinued and I was told by my local Clains lady at Macy's that this was the best alternative, huuuge mistake: I broke out immediately after my first use. I, however, stubbornly continued to use it thinking that Clarins clearly know what they're doing and wouldn't compromise my skin, no dice, I just kept breaking out and had to stop using it altogether. I am very disappointed and told the Clarins rep this, I know I'm not the only one this must have happened to, so maybe this product needs to be reformulated or something. Note to Clarins: don't discontinue products without proffering similar alternatives because some of your customers, like myself,have extremely sensitive skin and can't afford to be hopping from product to product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chili2310 from This stuff is AMAZING! I first got a sample of the product and fell in love with it so went ahead and ordered the big one. It is small, but you don't have to use very much. Every now and then I will get a pimple. They usually leave behind a little dark spot that doesn't disappear for about a month or so. Using this serum, now any spots or marks are gone within a few days. It's quite amazing. My husband even asked to use it one day to get rid of a mark he was having troubles with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rogue from A Winner! After only a week I noticed a difference in my skin. Red spots lighting, luminosity. You want to pair this with your Double Serum for best results. I have seen reviews speaking on "going back to Double serum" etc. It really depends on how you use it. It is recommended you use Mission Perfection Serum in your a.m. routine and your Double Serum with your nighttime routine. As well, make sure you apply your product by pressing it into your skin and using the Clarins massage techniques. I cannot stress enough how using the massage techniques works wonders with your product! Serums work best when used with moisturizer applied afterwards so if you only use a serum on it's own it is not going to produce the best results you can get to. Think of a serum as the "vitamin" and the moisturizer after as your "sealer" A serum has smaller molecules to get deep in the layers of skin and the moisturizer "locks it in" and provides hydration needed. :) I am a certified make-up artist and skin care consultant. I hope this is helpful info for you all!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Midway from Did not see any difference after using it I have used this product from Feb. 20, 2016 to Mar. 31, 2016 - a month and 11 days. I have not seen any improvement in lightening my skin pigmentation at all. I purchased it with great expectation and hope this finally works for my needs but it did not. I was trying a number of Clarins products lately. Ironically, I found out Clarins gentle peeling smooth away cream (gentle scrub) did lighten my pigmentation right after I used it. I tried it 2-3 times so far with on-line purchase samples and just bought two regular size tubes to test it out. Anyhow, it really cleans my face and minimizes my pores, which I love. You might want to try Clarins gentle peeling smooth away cream if you want to lighten your skin pigmentation and let me know how it goes. Good luck!
