I admit it, I have these spots on my skin that need help. It’s my own fault. I can’t seem to stop tweezing (peri-menopausal whiskers–HATE) and squeezing anything foreign I see on my face. And as a licensed esthetician, I know better!
I was given Black Opal Beauty Fade products to try out, and I was quite skeptical that an inexpensive brand would work. However, I’m happy to say that they are pretty darn good, particularly for a budget beauty brand found in drugstores.
Here is the claim for the Fade Gel:
Night gel. Tackle dark spots and discoloration with a scientifically advanced formula featuring Bio-Intensive Skin Complex, a proprietary blend of Hydroquinone, at the maximum strength available without a prescription, combined with soothing natural ingredients that work together to even your skin tone and brighten your overall complexion. For all skin types. Helps treat uneven, discolored skin.
And for the Pre-Fade Gentle Cleanser:
Wash away impurities, exfoliate skin, and brighten your overall complexion with this dual-phase cleanser. Micro-beads remove dead cells and dullness while Citrus Lightening Complex gently fades your dark spots and brightens your skin. For all skin types. Helps treat uneven, discolored skin.
My results with Gentle (Pre-Fade) Cleanser:
This creamy cleanser is certainly gentle. The exfoliating beads are a bonus. But don’t expect major exfoliation from them. The beads are an added touch, but just enough to do mild exfoliation. My skin always felt clean and comfortable after using this cleanser. Not at all like it had just been sapped of every vestige of life, as some cleansers do. A great price point, particularly considering that it lasted almost 2 months with daily use. My only negative is that with the addition of the beads, I was not able to take the cleanser across my eyes.
