Mary Kay's MelaCEP Whitening Set not very effective

I've been using the Mary Kay MelaCEP Whitening System for a month now and I see absolutely no improvement in my complexion. The set consists of a facial wash, a freshener, a dark spot serum, an essence, a day moisturizer, a night cream and a moisture-rich mask. I'm terribly low-maintenance so the many products were a bit of a turn off. Yet I religiously followed the 7-step program night and day. In the end, I saw no visible lightening of spots or even the promise of a glowing complexion. And for P9,030 for the entire set... Well, that's a bit expensive for stuff that doesn't really work!

And it smells like spoiled milk, too.

Hhhmmm...I started using Clinique's Derma White Brightening Toner to get rid of my acne scars without being red or flaky (or both). I'm on my 2nd week, no dramatic results yet. The scars seem to be fading slowly. Although, it helped my skin stay clear and it doesn't have that "fake" whitening effect. Hehe.

Well, two weeks is not a long time. Usually, whitening takes at least 6 weeks, but maximum effects are usually seen in 8 weeks. Has something to do with cell turnover or something =) But from your comments, seems like a great product! Thanks for sharing!
