Skin Care Review: Obagi 4% hydroquinone cream

by Bella Anna

Adverse Effects

No benefits for me

the brown spots reappeared after I discontinued the cream, they got even worse.

I have melasma on my forehead & cheeks. I have very sensitive skin. I was advised at the Spa to try the Obagi 4% hydroquinone bleaching cream for the brown spots. So I purchased the cream & used it for 3 months as advised. The cream was stinging for the first week but after the second week it stopped. I also applied a moisturizer with an SPF15 sunscreen. The brown spots faded by anout 50% so I was happy. But when I discontinued the cream the spots reappeared even darker than before & also in places where I had none before ( chin & lower cheeks). I am very discouraged !

Based on my experience I do not recommend this product !
