Post-Acne Scars, Oh No!

Back in high school, I use to break out a lot on my face and on my back. If the people who know me now saw pictures from back then, I don't even know if they'd even recognize me. Before I really understood how important beauty is to a woman, I picked at my scabs, popped pimples, the whole ordeal. Now I totally regret it, but its too late. The scars are already there. Overtime, some of them have slowly faded. However, some of my darker ones are still haunting me. So I decided to try some spot treatment serums. These serums are a bit pricey so I asked for samples first. 
The first one I got a sample of was Origins Dr. Weil Mega-Bright Correcting Serum. It's very lightweight and applies very smooth onto my skin. Right after applying it, I noticed my skin tone looking more even. The texture looks dewy yet velvety. It absorbs very fast, even though it goes on feeling a bit thick. The key ingredient in this serum is Rosa Buxburghii, a flower found in Asia. The fruit from this rose contains vitamins A,C,E and fatty acids that help with discoloration of the skin. I've only used it for 2 days so I'm not sure how well the results will be, but I will update again if I buy the full-size product.
 It is a light-green tinted milky serum.  
The 2nd serum I got with a bonus gift from Shiseido. It is their White Lucent Intensive Spot Targeting Serum. I normally would not buy anything from this product line because I don't like using whitening products. I am naturally tan and prefer to be more on the dark side :P But this serum doesn't really whiten my skin, it just lightens my spots. It makes my overall skin tone look brighter and more silky. It is more lightweight than the Origins serum and goes on almost like creamy water. I really like how it absorbs after I use Shiseido Balancing Softener. It makes my skin feel super soft afterward my routine.
This serum is pearlescent and milky.
The last sample I got doesn't do much for my post-acne scars, but it seems to be helping my dark under-eye circles. It is the Origins GinZing eye cream. There is caffeine in this to make your eyes look more awake and alive. So far, its been pretty good. It goes on relatively light, even though the texture of the cream is pretty oily. I've only used it for 2 days so I will update in detail if I buy the full size.

Till next time :)
