Has anyone heard of TRI LUMA?

Has anyone, (preferrably african american skin tones) tried it before, if so, what were you results?

It is suppose to clear up dark spots on the skin.

I have been wondering the same thing but I think I've found something else it's called Makari and I have heard good things about it. I am about to make a post on it and see if anyone here has had good results with it.

I received a sample from my dermatologist to fade some brown spots but have not used it enough to answer the question. Then my mom gave me her prescription sized big tube as she didn't like it. Now my issue is, does anyone know if it can cause a white (hypopigmented) area where your dark spot used to be. I wasn't sure if from using my sample I had a little white spot or it was my imagination. Embarassed If so, that might be more of a problem with African American skin but I am not sure.

Gaby, I think I ran into the white spot problem too.

I used Triluma, albeit reluctantly, for a while to fade some sun damage, but got too nervous with the steroid and HQ, so stopped using it. Plus, my skin seemed ultra sensitive to the sun. I also read that after you stop using it, your brown spots come back with a vengeance. I sm very fair skinned and totally abused my skin in the sun from about age 15-30! Oh, to take back the sun worshipping years!

So, I'm just sticking to non-HQ products, like vitamin C, kojic, and the like.

Thanks for the response Maria. I think I will focus on the basics like sunscreen, vit C etc and drinking more water for now.

To those who are wondering about Tri-Luma I'm currently using it and it's wonderful for my skin! My dermatologist really did'nt want to give it to me because I am African American but he did. I had severe dark circles under my eyes and with the help of Tri Luma they are slightly noticable without make-up and not noticable at all with make-up. It isn't greasy like most creams they make for African Americans. Which will all know isn't health for oily skin at all. I've tried some many bleaching products over the years and Tri Luma doesn't leave my skin red, dried-out or irritated.

I tried tri luma two years ago, and my derm said to only use it at night, but i had bad hyperpig on my neck, and i was desperate to get rid of it, so i used it day and night. My skin began to peel so bad that it bleeded a little(this was before i knew that you were suppose to wear sunscreen with hydroquinone). But exactly three days later, my skin was smooth, soft, and light as hell! i guess it was one of those treatments where it gets worse before it gets better. Anyway, if you wear sunscreen with it, and protective hat/clothing, it will lighten you greatly.

triluma has a steroid in it, I wouldn't use it long term for under the eyes. Sometimes I don't understand what these dr's are thinking??? It may be a quick fix, but steroids..... Shock

For all of you that are wondering about the steroid in Tri-Luma that amount is so very little and is commonly used in prescriptions for the skin...I've done the research for myself...Because I was worried about it. Tri-Luma hasn't been a quick fix for me personally and has helped me along with my daily facial routine...I also don't use it on a daily bases nor twice a day when I use it. For my skin that would be way too much. Also any peeling that is associated with Tri-Luma can be solved with Olay renewal creams. I found that out by trial and error. Good luck to those who will try it.

My mother has used Tri Luma before.Its content is small because for only brown spot.
My mother used it for 2months,but the result is not good.
And it causes some irritation and red skin tone.
