Well I received my jar of Glyquin about a week ago and all ready I see a difference in my dark circles. I used this product about a year ago and liked it. The newer verson seems to spread on the face smoother. It is a heavy cream so I only use it at night. I will post again after a month of use and let you all know if my dark circles are still getting better. I still use Obagi Clear during the day. It is much lighter of a cream.

The above post is a review of the following product available at EDS:
Glyquin XM (28 gr)
Glyquin XM (28 gr)



This new version of Glyquin is the same as original Glyquin with the benefits of Vitamins C & E and Hyaluronic Acid. It also contains extra moisturizing agents. It is designed to slowly “bleach” hyperpigmented skin conditions. When too much melanin (the pigment portion of skin) is produced as a result of sun exposure, for example this can lead to hyperpigmentation or overly pigmented patches of skin. Hydroquinone an active ingredient in GLYQUIN®—works by inhibiting the production of melanin. Glycolic acid was added to increase the penetration and efficacy of hydroquinone.

Olyn, It has hydroquinone at 4% and AHA. and some other stuff. From reading other peoples forum post, it seems hydroqinione is not concedered 'healthly' or whatever. For me, I spent 42 years watching everything that went on me, in me, around me, you get it. Well I still got cancer. You know what I think made me sick? All the worrying about what would give me this or that! Now I do as I think is best for me at the time and reserve my right to change my mind. Let me know if you try it. Smile

Let me know how it's working for you!! I have this too, but haven't used it for ages because, well, I forgot about it actually and I probably couldn't work it in either (and it was for a non-specific reason, i.e uneven pigmentation, I think). Hadn't thought about using it on dark circles though... Rolling Eyes

PS like your philosophy, I think people worry WAY too much in general....

I have bought Glyquin before for my mother.
But it didn't work well.At first too sticky,so hard to penetrate to skin.
And a littel irritation happens.
Never repurchase.

My dermatologist told to try this for some "sun/age spots" on my face. I used it for a month (not every day ) didn't notice any difference. It did not irritate my skin. He said to toss it when it changed colour. I felt guilty throwing out a jar almost full! I guess I used it too sparingly. I may try it again.

Glyquin gave me the sunburn look. I only applied to the dark spots on my cheeks and my coworkers kept asking me if I was ok coz I was bright red. Ended up tossing it as well.

I suggest anyone who uses this for the first time do a patch test on their arms for at least a week first. I had a really bad reaction after the 5th day using it. Too bad it didn't work for me.

In the 70's I exposed my skin to the sun constantly and pay the price now by having pigmentation on my face. I was wondering if anyone had tried this product for 6 months to see if it does achieve the results claimed. Or have people had success with other products to reduce pigmentation?

Hi there,

I am looking for a solution for spot treatment and have gather many information. Below are a few choices that u might want to try out.

Please read the many post in EDS on 1) Vitamin C like Skin Medica 2)Remergent product like DNA repair or Barrier Repair 3) Mama Lotion.
They all helps in pigmentation too. Good Luck

This was recommended to me for sun/age spots -- didn't do anything (and I was diligent and followed the instructions). Very disappointing.

i know someone who uses it for their birthmark, in combination with a strong sunblock during the day, the birthmark is not noticeable anymore, it's like a miracle when i saw it. but you have to keep using it otherwise it comes back.

I really liked this products results but I didn't like the heavy sticky cream so I didn't repurchase.

I don't like the texture. It is too oily. The cream turns yellow/brown before I could finish it. I will not buy it again.
