    Default Porcelana? Anyone use it?

    So I bought a small jar of Porcelana skin lightening cream (night one) and we'll see what happens. I have some spot from my out of control hormones.

    Wish me luck.

    I'll let you know if it works.

    I love the old commercial that said, "Porcelana...the medicated fade cream." I like to point out my husband's age spots and say that to him. Yep, we're weird.

    THANKS!

    Put it on last night - bit tingly and tight for a second - maybe I was a tad generous with my thin layer.

    I am so impatient - I WANT IT TO WORK NOW - right now.

    I hate waiting....

    Da dum.

    Actually, a few years ago I had this small but hideous liver spot on my right cheek and I used Lustra AF (4% hydroquinone) on it. It got rid of the spot, but the spot started to resurface after I went to the beach repeatedly over the years.

    I'm starting to think I might want it lasered off at some point when I can't tolerate its existence anymore (which may be very soon). For right now, it's not that noticeable and I can cover it with concealer, but I'm sure laser treatment is way more effective (even though much more expensive).

    Ouu I'll have to look into that one too.

    I'm in NY too - I'll go with you.

    I like it so far.
    I don't want to say I think it's working just yet - I could just be getting pale from lack of sun...

    I'm hopeful though.

    Wasn't that the same commercial that said, "Some people call these age spots, but I call them UGLY".?

    Still using it - it's very sutble but it seems to be working - I plan to finish the container and see what I think.
