Trying to decide which skin lightening product to use can be a difficult under taking so we did one of our in-depth reviews, examining the ingredients, clinical research, side effects, and customer quality reviews. We also went through hundreds of user comments from various websites. We took all of the information and condensed to give you the highlights and lowlights of this product.
How the Product Works
Dermisa Skin Fade Cream works to reduce the look of skin imperfections and hyper-pigmentation from sun exposure, pregnancy, birth control and aging.
Dermisa Skin Fade Cream was the first introduction of the Dermisa Product line and continues to be its best seller. It’s a light, non-oily and dual action skin lightening cream that effectively helps to lighten and eliminate dark skin spots. This product is great for melasma, hyper-pigmentation, sun damage and age spots.
The main ingredients listed are hydroquinone 2% (skin lightener), octyl dimethyl paba 0.60% (sunscreen) water, glyceryl monostearate, mineral oil, propylene glycol, cetyl alcohol, dimethicone, sodium lauryl sulphate, disodium EDTA, ascorbic acid (Vitamin C).
- Product Speed
- Long Term Results
After using it for weeks, we found no change in the look of hyper-pigmentation marks or acne scarring.
Side Effects – Possible Irritants
Dermisa Skin Fade Cream contains hydroquinone, which can cause severe skin redness, burning, stinging; severe skin dryness, cracking, bleeding; blistering or blue or black discoloration. A few of the users who wrote reviews online also suffered from an acne breakout after applying the serum. The other turn-off seems to be the smell, which is similar to Nair and it lingers on your skin for a good couple of minutes. Therefore this product may not be suitable for everyone.
Texture – Leaves a Residue
This product goes on like a thick paste and has a waxy feel to it. Some reviews also claimed that it made their skin itch, so it might not be a good for sensitive skin types. The other downside is that it comes in a metal tube that tends to leak and crack over time. Applying makeup and a concealer is not advisable until the cream has soaked into the skin.
There were no results! After applying this product both day and night, there was little evidence of lightening. It also has a high amount of vitamin C, which is not good to use if you are going to be exposed to direct sunlight. After using it for about two weeks and absolutely no results except break outs, it’s safe to say that Dermisa is a waste of money.
The Bottom Line
Dermisa is not the answer for individuals who have moderate or even mild discoloration. After using it for weeks, we found no change in the look of hyper-pigmentation marks or acne scarring. In fact, it causes breakouts. This product contains hydroquinone, which has a list of possible side effects such as stinging, discoloration, blisters and redness. Buying this product is not worth the $7.00 is costs.
