Q: do i apply serum to the darker spots only or to the whole face except around the eyes and nostrils?

submitted by Yamamoto - 5 years ago
  • A: My dermatologist told me to just apply to the spots you are trying to lighten.

    submitted byIvy L - 4 years ago
  • A: Hi Yamamoto! The best way to apply the Mela-D Pigment Control Face Serum is to spread about 4-5 drops on your entire face at night after cleansing. You can use it alone or under a moisturizer. Do not forget to use sunscreen while using this, as it can make you more sensitive to the sun. A great one to pair with this is La Roche Posay Toleriane Double Repair Face Moisturizer SPF 30. I hope this helps!

LuvTrgt - 5 days ago, Verified purchaser
I’ve been using this for over two months and my dark spot hasn’t faded at all. It’s sticky so I use it at night but it’s kinda uncomfortable as it stays sticky. The dispenser is awful and the product ends up running down the sides of the bottle when you put the cap back on. It also has a really bad scent so if that bothers you this product isn’t for you. I really don’t have anything positive to say about it and I will not be finishing the bottle.

I tried this serum based on my dermatologist recommendations. However, the packaging is a HUGE problem - it comes with a screw on cap and an eye dropped is included in the box. But the eye dropper doesn't fit the top of the bottle securely, causing the serum to leak out and get all over everything. Plus I found the serum to be too "wet" and stay very sticky/tacky for way too long. And I only used a few drops on my face. This is being returned to the store where I purchased it and I do not recommend it.

I have been using this serum for a year. I noticed a much improved look and feel of my skin. I stopped for a short period and returned after noticing my skin dull and had dry dead skin on my face. I would highly recommend this product. My skin is very sensitive and I can use this product.

Jenn - 3 months ago, Verified purchaser
The formula is fine but this product costs too much to be in a bottle like this. The product leaks all over when you put the dropper back in unless you wipe the dropper off on your hand, and the product starts to oxidize and turn dark because of the air exposure. A pump would be much better but I won't be repurchasing in this format.

The Product is very good. A few weeks I can already see my dark spots fading. The only reason I didn’t give it five stars is that the dropper does not fit correctly on the bottle. It does not screw on tight. This causes the product to leak and be exposed to air.
