Comments about La Roche-Posay Mela-D Pigment Control:

I started using this product about three weeks ago for pigment control near my upper lip. Whenever I'm exposed to the sun, I seem to get more and more freckles on my face, especially around my lip area. I stated using this product on my entire face, but now I only use it as a spot treatment for areas I want to 'lighten'. After two weeks, I noticed a significant difference in the discoloration on my face. I continue to use it daily along with La Roche-Posay
Anthelios 50 Tinted Mineral Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid to protect my skin from the sun. Although this product is expensive, since I only use it as a spot treatment I believe it will last me quite a while.

Caused Breakouts

    Comments about La Roche-Posay Mela-D Pigment Control:

    I currently use La Roche-Posay's Effaclar cleanser and clarifying toner. It has TREMENDOUSLY cleared up my skin. Now that my skin is cleared from current acne issues, I wanted to try something that would lighten the dark spots on my face from years of breakouts. I thought since the brand was so great for my skin clearing that this product would work as well....definitely wrong. It made me break out within the first few days. I thought it might be bc my skin is so sensitive and it was adjusting to the new product so I gave it a break for a couple days and then tried it again for a couple weeks. HORRIBLE. Clogged my pores and not a good solution for sensitive skin.

            Seeing results with continued use. I also use the mela-d cleanser, which is by far the best cleanser I've used, and the moisturizer.
            I thank the Ulta team at my local store for recommending these.

            Comments about La Roche-Posay Mela-D Pigment Control:

            I was so hopeful about this serum working for the new hyperpigmentation (or, sun spots) that's starting to appear on my Irish-type skin. I intended to use an entire bottle before writing a review, but after the second use my facial skin became inflammed and itchy (not severe itch, just slightly, but annoying). The inflammation was a raised rash type of thing. I immediately stopped using it and used my Mario Badescu seaweed products to correct it, which they did in two days, thank goodness. So, I guess maybe this serum isn't for my type of skin. I am so grateful that ULTA let's us return products we purchase from them! I will never stop buying from ULTA.

            and it comes in this bottle. In a little more than a week, my spots are fading and my skin looks more even and brighter! I just can't believe how well this works. I just want to cry. My skin looks so much better.

              Comments about La Roche-Posay Mela-D Pigment Control:

              I have tried other products without success on my age spots. Was really hoping that Mela-D would finally be the products that would fade them. The only slight improvement I saw was on a couple of small spots on my neck; they faded a bit but not completely. The two larger ones on each cheek did not budge. Next step for me is a derm appointment to have them frozen off.

                Comments about La Roche-Posay Mela-D Pigment Control:

                This is my 3rd week in using the La Roche-Posay products and I can say that this is what I had been waiting for. I have old acne scars (pitted, boxed and rolling types). The main problem I have is these scars are darker in tone as it gets deeper. I needed a product that would penetrate to even out my skin tone and improve the texture. Together with the Mela-D Cleanser and the pigment control serum, it worked wonders for me. My skin is more even, smooth, and looks radiant. I'm a budget buyer but this is worth every penny.

                  Comments about La Roche-Posay Mela-D Pigment Control:

                  I love the consistency of this product. It is a serum that absorbs quickly into the skin, and it actually works! It doesn't irritate the skin too much, but it can be a bit tingly, especially if you have exfoliated or if you have been using it night after night. I suggest using it two nights in a row at first and then start using it every other night and switch it up with a different serum. I have brown skin that was discolored from a reaction to another skin cream, and the mela-D has helped to even out my skin a lot. I could go makeup free and feel completely comfortable. I also like the smell, it is a chemical-ly smell but it is clean and not too strong.

                  I used this cream for a month, and I did not notice big results, at first, I did see a dark spots evening out, but after the month, I did not see any more improvements. It's a very safe and gentle formula, so results are not fast, I may need to use it for at least 4 months in a row to really see results.
