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 […]

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. A more recent version also contains caviar extract, which it claims is effective. I am skeptical of the caviar extract […]
