Worked for me! +update
on June 25, 2017
I have hyperpigmentation on my upper lip caused by hormonal imbalance and too much sun exposure. I am 30 y.o. olive complected with moderately sensitive skin. I saw results from this product after 4 days of am/pm usage. It is a chemical that removes skin by peeling. By the fourth use it burned like hell fire, and my faux mustache looked raw and red for 5 days. So, I recommend using it on a week you don't have something important planned. I luckily had the week off. I was able to conceal it enough with make up, but the peeling was still pretty embarrassing and lasted a week, but I felt it was worth it to get rid of my everyday all the time 5oclock shadow that has brought so much more embarrassment and stress. I used a retinol moisturizer, periodically vitamin e oil, and 60 spf sunscreen which I will use for the rest of my life since sun exposure can bring the shadow back. I can see an obvious difference but would like to go further, but this time I think I will do smaller spots at a time so it's not so noticeable. Good luck to all that are trying to feel comfortable in their skin, I hope this product helps you as it did for me!
After seeing how many people have found this review "helpful" I felt compelled to update after using this cream again. My Malasma above my lip came back after not being deligent with sunscreen. (reapply..reapply..reapply) this time knowing how this stuff works, and how it can burn I've been more careful and I am taking my time since my skin is so sensitive. The first time I used it I was applying am/pm, eventually creating raw skin. If it really burns wipe it off and let it heal. there's a little sting for me sometimes but don't hurt yourself like I did! This time around I have been putting it on once a day, found it burned one day so I washed it off and skipped that one. I'm seeing results and I don't have raw skin that I can't mask with makeup! Please also take your time if you have a reaction with this product, it's very strong stuff! I will update with more pictures when I finish this round!
