I am a pretty big fan of retinol. It is one of the few active ingredients that I have found that actually shows visible results on fine lines. It also brightens a bit, which I like since I have areas of melasma. Unfortunately though, it can also be irritating, especially in prescription strength.  DermaDoctor Poetry […]

I am constantly switching up my melasma treatment products. I do this for two reasons: (1) I want to test them all for publication, and (2) It is actually good for you to switch products.

Makari Skin Lightening Cream

Makari Caviar Melasma and Hyperpigmentation Treatment

Awhile back, I was sent samples of a Makari Skin Whitening & Lightening Cream to try. The cream is hydroquinone free and instead contains arbutin, mulberry extract and licorice extract as recognizable melasma treatment ingredients.

DDF Fade Gel 4 Melasma Treatment, Treating Melsama and Acne Together

DDF Fade Gel 4 Treating Melasma and Hyperpigmentation Skin Care

  When my recent favorite treatment for melasma and hyperpigmentation from PCA Skin Care (read review) ran out, I decided to try a similar product from another brand simply for review purposes. That always makes me a bit nervous, because when I find something that works, I hate to switch. But in this case there […]
