KIKO Skincare - Anti Spot Skin Trainer Review

Posted by on Friday, January 01, 2016

Happy New Year everyone!

I obtained these bad boys in that infamous Black Friday haul...easily the most expensive products I've ever purchased from KIKO.

For some reason, the Skin Trainer serum is a red box encased in a silver box...strange packaging choice, but OK.

The anti-spot serum is a thin-ish liquid with an SPF of 20. Leaves no white cast or what have you on my dark skin. Also, it absorbs extremely quickly, very important when I'm in hurry in the morning. I've been using it in the mornings (not in the evenings although twice daily application is recommended) since Black Friday, (so a month and a bit now) and my skin seems more even toned and smoother, although I have recently started using a Foreo rip off and occasional AHA so they could also be responsible. I've had two spots since using this product. Annoyingly, my nose is still pretty oily, though that too has reduced somewhat recently...I'm more inclined to credit my skin trying to adjust to the colder/drier weather than this product though.

Skin Trainer is the white liquid on the extreme left.

I have slight (but noticeable) dark discolouration on both of my cheeks which has definitely faded since I started using this product. It's still there, but definitely improved which is a massive bonus.
The serum is hydrating, but not hydrating enough to skip moisturiser for me personally. I use this, then moisturiser (currently trying Clinique's Moisture Surge) followed by the CC Blur and then the KIKO BB cream.
After application, skin looks a little brighter and more refreshed but I wouldn't say it works miracles like it implies on the box.

All in all, I'm really pleased with this serum! Would recommend to anyone interested to at least visit the store and enquire about it and whether it'd suit your skin's needs. As promised on the packaging, it reduces dark spots (also red ones if anyone is prone to those), makes me appear a little more radiant and makes me look more even.

Has anyone else tried this? I find it hard to find English-language reviews for this product so would be interested to hear your views!
