Hi guys

I promised some time ago to give a review after I tried the PTR Lightening (w Hydroquinone).

I have been using it for about 4 weeks now.

I had obvious brown patches on my nose and the side of my cheeks. Intially, the brown spots got a bit darker (this is apparently the "roofing" process in which the melanin surfaces). The skin peeled a bit and now the patches are 2 shades lighter, and with foundation, they are not not there anymore. I am now working on an overall lightening effect, by applying 2 small drops on the entire face. Next review 4 weeks later. Tah!
Very Happy

The above post is a review of the following product available at EDS:
Peter Thomas Roth Potent Skin Lightening Gel Complex with Hydroquinone (2 oz.)
Peter Thomas Roth Potent Skin Lightening Gel Complex with Hydroquinone (2 oz.)

Oil-free, hydroquinone 2% deep penetrating with azelaic acid, kojic acid, bearberry and mulberry extracts, vitamin C and salicylic acid for all skin types except sensitive
This exciting formulation contains the proven, highly effective skin lightening complex of 2% hydroquinone, azelaic and kojic acids, bearberry and mulberry extracts, anti-oxidant vitamin C, the proven skin-penetrating capabilities of dimethyl isosorbide and the gentle cell turnover properties of beta hydroxy acid (salicylic acid). Regular use combined with sun avoidance gradually lightens dark (brownish) spots such as freckles and age spots or pigment in the skin that may occur in pregnancy or from use of oral contraceptives.

What is Hydroquinone? I always see this ingredient but I have no idea the function of it.

Hydroquinone is a bleaching agent. Generally used to reduce freckles or hyperpigmentation.
