NeoStrata HQ Skin Lightening Gel is rated 4.8571 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product.. I have been seeing this product and it's effectiveness at a dermatologists office for years now. Have tried chemical peels which caused new melisma spots on my face, Tri-Luma, very expensive, yet the spots returned, Retinol, bleaching creams etc. Here I was contemplating Lasers when the reviews indicated that it can actually worsen or increase melisma. Finally tried Neo Strata and the spots have extremely faded. I am very cautious and apply sunscreen as indicated. very effective and affordable product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective Produc I previously used the cream version of this product and now, I believe the cream version has been discontinued. So I ordered the gel version. It still has the same effectiveness on my skin, but it does leave a sticky residue, but I can live with it. I used this on my beard area, because I had significant scaring from ingrown hairs (I'm African American male). It has not only helped eliminate most of the ingrown hair problem but has also cleared up most of the hyper pigmentation that has occurred over the years. Bottom line: this is an effective product for me. The sticky residue of the gel is not a huge problem and just a minor inconvenience. I will definitely reorder this product for myself and also purchase some for my brother who suffers the same problems.
