I was selected to sample Lumixyl Topical Brightening Creme
. I used as directed on the tube, twice a day on clean dry skin and to use sunscreen which I always do regardless. I have 3 areas of hyperpigmentation
- both sides of jawline and upper right cheekbone area. I did not see any significant lightening of my hyperpigmentation - although to be honest the lower left jawline is probably melasma which is difficult to lighten. However, Lumixyl claims to be as effective as hydroquinone
but in my case I found that was not the case. For the few small hyperpigmented spots that I have on my cheek, I did see a very slight lightening of the spots.
In all fairness, I don't think just one month of use is long enough to lighten dark patches noticeably although it did somewhat lighten smaller dark spots. And if I were to use this product again I would probably buy the glycolic creme that Lumixyl sells to go with this product and try the LED green light
that Marta uses on her website. I thought this product might be something new for me to try that would work as well as hydroquinone but for me it turned out not to be as effective as hydroquinone products. Due to the cost of this product, I probably would not use it again.
