Does Reviva Fade Cream Lighten & Brighten Your Complexion?

Q: I worked as a gardener for many years with exposure to the sun for hours in a day which consequentially took a toll on my skin. I have noticed blotchy patches on my forehead and arm areas and I am contemplating on trying a skin lightener. However, I’ve heard some bad stories on these types of products irritating the skin and I have sensitive skin to begin with. I am specifically interested in the Reviva Fade Cream. What can you tell me about this product?
Expert Answer
Reviva Fade Cream

The Reviva Skin Lightener Day Fade Cream is a product designed to treat brown spots and other skin discolorations. The base lightening ingredients include mulberry, lime and hydroquinone. Even though the percentage of hydroquinone in the product is minimal this ingredient is well-known for its negative and carcinogenic effects. The product contains SPF 15 sunscreen and is not tested on animals.

Like other similar products in the market, there are no clinical studies to support Reviva Fade Cream effectiveness. The product is easily obtainable through various distributors on the internet or at your local GNC. If you have a history of sensitive skin or allergies, you should be cautious before purchasing this product.

If you do shop for a skin brightening product in a health store, pharmacy or on the Internet, you’ll often find hundreds of different brands containing a confusing array of ingredients. You may be tempted to experiment with different products until you find one that works. But this approach may be expensive. More importantly, not all products contain the quality and quantity of necessary ingredients to positively promote long-term improvements on the appearance of hyperpigmentation and an overall healthy, even and radiant complexion. That’s why you’ll need to do a little bit of research to find the best, most potent brand for your needs.
