Ever raised your hand in public wearing a sleeveless dress and got all eyes on your underarms? Ever felt embarrassed about wearing short dresses for you have pigmented knees and elbows? Discoloration is no less than discomfiture. If you have felt either of these, I am sure you must have googled all possible home remedies and tried them already! Still no change? You gotta read out my today’s post on Dot & Key products from their pigmentation care range.
For those new to the brand, Dot & Key is a brand that makes paraben, sulphates and phthalate FREE products. Their products are cruelty free. I recently tried out 2 of their products from the pigmentation care range- 1) Underarm colour correction serum 2) Knee and Elbow retexturizing serum. I have used them for a good span of time, here’s how they performed on me 🙂 –
Product Packaging- Their products are in pastels and have this cardboard packaging with super fun design. The pigmentation care range has got all things color-coordinated in pink. It comes purity sealed with 2 stickers on sides. Inside comes the serum in even cuter bottles. Totally crushing over these, I swear! They have got pump dispenser and dispenses just the perfect amount of product. However, there’s a problem with the cap; it doesn’t make a good grip on the bottle.
Fragrance- OMG! This smells amazing, instantly lifts up my mood when I’m using it ! If you love peonies, you’ll love the way it smells however don’t expect the fragrance to last on you for long hours. This range has got mild fragrance which wears off within an hour or so post which it’s almost faint. This product contains Parfum!
About Dot & Key Underarm Colour Correction Serum– With zero nasty chemicals, this underarm whitening cream serum is completely safe and gentle on skin. its carefully formulated skin lightening botanical system contains the goodness of uva ursi (bearberry) leaf and paeonia suffruticosa (peony) root which corrects uneven skin tone of dark underarms by significantly deterring the production of melanin without any toxicity or side-effects. it minimizes the area of rigid pigmentation and brightens the complexion, creating an even tone on all skin types.
Price- 895/- for 50 ml
My Experience- Dot & Key Underarm Colour Correction Serum has gel-like consistency. It gets inside the skin pretty quick without giving any greasy/creamy feel on the underarm area. No tingling, no skin irritation. It doesn’t stain your clothes but put on your clothes only when the serum has been absorbed by the skin (You’ll end up wiping it off with your cloth otherwise).
I am someone who doesn’t have high pigmentation on my underarms, but of course the discoloration is visible enough. After using this on clean underarms twice a day for over 4 weeks now, I can see a noticeable difference on this area. Surprisingly, it appears brighter now. They have an underarm correction mask too, together with that the results are even better 🙂 .
About Dot & Key Knee & Elbow Retexturizing Serum- Free from nasty chemicals, its skin lightening botanical system deters the production of melanin without any toxicity or side effects. This minimizes pigmentation in dark knees and elbows, while brightening the complexion and revealing an even tone on all skin types. It’s not just about how your skin looks, but also about how it feels. Intensely hydrating jojoba and shea butter revitalize the coarse skin of these areas, while calming floral fragrance lends a pleasing experience.
Price- INR 895/- for 50 ml
My Experience- Dot & Key Knee & Elbow Retexturizing Serum has lotion-like consistency. It has a light weight formula, gets into the skin nicely. No tingling! No skin irritation. Apply it on clean skin, not over any other product layer; you want it to regain the same old color, no?
To be honest, I don’t have pigmentation on my elbows but I really wanted something to help me with my knees and this came as a rescue. I have been religiously using this for 4+ weeks twice a day and I’m elated that it worked on evening it out slightly for now. Frankly, I don’t see a lotttt of difference this early but I’m going to continue using it further. Good things take time, don’t they? 🙂
Dot & Key Underarm Colour Correction Serum– 4.5/5
Dot & Key Knee & Elbow Retexturizing Serum- 4/5
Wrapping it up- To conclude, Dot & Key is a brand that makes cruelty-free products. Their products are free from toxins like parabens, sulphates, phthalates and more. Your pigmentation appeared overnight? No, right? Do not expect it to vanish overnight then! It takes time and patience to reverse it. Don’t give up using just because it’s not showing you the desired results in a short span of time. Dot & Key’s products are promising and I’ve seen the results on myself. **Contains Parfum**
