It’s safe to use on all skin types as it’s strong, yet gentle on the skin. It’s a good ingredient for the sensitive skin too. It calms and sooths an irritated skin and brings comfort in rosacea. It clears up the skin and lightens dark spots.

How to use it? Does it leave a nice feel onto your skin?
The cream is easy to apply and you should pay attention to your skin’s reaction to see if you should increase/decrease the dosage.
The nice smooth consistency of the cream makes it go easily into your skin. The cream moisturizes and renews the skin, making a great base for your makeup.
We like the cream as it gives results right away, peeling the skin lightly only to allow the new, toned and younger skin to show.
Keep in mind to follow it with a good moisturizer as the cream may be drying at first.
Additionally, if you ever experienced an allergic reaction to retinol or hydroquinone, it’s safer to make a patch test at first.
What are the ups and downs of the cream?
The cream brings plenty of good things to the table so highlighting them isn’t that easy:
- The cream lightens and reduces hyperpigmentation
- It’s safe to use on all skin types, sensitive skin including
- It doesn’t include hydroquinone or caustic chemicals
- It goes easily into the skin
- It hydrates the skin and leaves it toned and even
- It can give results after short time
- It’s a great base for makeup
Even though the minor downsides aren’t deal breakers, it’s always wise to check them too, just to get the whole picture:
- It may dry the skin in the beginning, so it’s better to follow it with a good moisturizer
- This isn’t quite the cheapest whitening cream out there
- As it peels lightly the skin, one may not go for this kind of effect. Keep in mind though that this happens only in the beginning and a moisturizer can easily solve the issue.
What’s our final take on the cream?
As it’s loaded with whitening ingredients, we like the cream for its efficiency and reliability. It removes the dark spots of various causes and leaves your skin more radiant and healthier looking. One could argue there are cheaper options out there that also work, but why wouldn’t you treat your skin with something that’s proven to work well?
