Mela-D – The Overview

“La Roche-Posay” is a company that makes a handful of skincare products including Mela-D which is a skin brightener that is said to help with dark spots, discoloration, blemishes according to the manufacturer. It is marketed and sold through an official website which contains some information about the product and how it is supposed to work. While the website is reasonably professional in appearance and consumer friendly, it is very standard in what it offers. Some contact details are shown so consumers can get in touch with the customer service department and there are a few success stories but no before and after photos. The product page for Mela-D includes the list of ingredients contained in the formula, but no full descriptions are provided and individual amounts used are not disclosed. Instructions for usage are very brief and there are no additional features such as video tutorials etc.Customers can also sign up to the loyalty program to receive special offers from the company but there is no information if discounts are offered for larger orders.


Ingredients Contained in The Product

Glycolic Acid, Kojic Acid, Lipo-Hydroxy Acid

Good about Mela-D

  • customers can sign up to the loyalty program to receive special offers from the company
  • Mela-D is fast-absorbing, lightweight texture
  • Mela-D may help diminish dark spots

Bad about Mela-D

  • Ingredients are not explained in detail
  • Individual amount of ingredient not provided
  • Contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase skin’s sensitivity to the sun and particularly the risk of sunburn
  • Mela-D Free trial is not offered
  • Mela-D – The Bottom Line

    There does not appear to be anything about Mela-D that makes it stand out from other skin brightening products on the market. It contains a standard blend of natural skin brightening ingredients but there are no clinical studies cited as proof of just how well it really works. Customer reviews for Mela-D are mixed and, as with any kind of topical skin brightening product, results will vary from person to person. It would be helpful if more details were provided about the formula ingredients, such as their exact function and concentrated amounts, so consumers could have a better understanding of the product in relation to its skin brightening benefits. With so many other brands of skin brighteners on the market, consumers would be advised to opt for an alternative product preferably with free samples to try.
