I'm on My Fifth Bottle of This $18 Toner to Tackle Dark Spots and Ingrown Hairs

Whether it's from acne, excessive irritation, the sun, ingrown hairs, or something else, dark spots and hyperpigmentation are inevitable for me. Sunscreen helps to prevent it from getting worse. Tyrosinase inhibitors and brighteners like vitamin C, azelaic acid, and niacinamide can treat it after it's happened. However, one of the key steps to diminishing dark spots is consistent exfoliation. As I was strolling through the aisles of Target as one does on a random Sunday afternoon, the Versed Weekend Glow Daily Brightening Solution caught my attention with its bright and fun yellow packaging. Other exfoliating toners prioritize skin renewal or targeting pores and blemishes. However, this toner specifically focused on dark spots and hyperpigmentation.

It's got the best of both worlds, including a powerful blend of chemical exfoliants and skin-brighteners. Stubborn dark spots are something I've been dealing with for a long time, so anytime there's a product that deals with diminishing hyperpigmentation, I have to try it out. After finishing my first bottle of it, I fell in love with it. Not only did it help my complexion, but it was also a lifesaver for my underarms and bikini line.
