This is a review of My Skins Friend Organic Skin Lightener. The company that produces this product states that it is effective at reducing age spots, hyperpigmentation, melasma, acne marks, and skin discoloration. They claim that the formula is more effective than many ingredients on the market. The following information will assess the truth of this claim to determine if this is the optimal skin lightening product on the market.
- Waukee Inner Root Extract
- Bearberry Extract
- Licorice Root
- Gentian Root
- Niacinamide (vitamin B3)
- Vitamin C
- Bio-extracted Fruit Enzymes
Waukee Inner Root Extract is known for its skin lightening properties. Licorice Root and Bearberry Extract have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. These ingredients work to prevent swelling, redness, and irritation of the skin. Gentian Root may speed up the healing process of skin and thus prevent spots and breakouts. Niacinamide (vitamin B3) decreases blotchiness of the skin by inhibiting the damaging effects of external aggressors. Vitamin C prevents the harmful effects of the sun on the skin as it supports cell health. Bio-extracted Fruit Enzymes support the benefits of these ingredients. While these ingredients may prove beneficial to an extent, the formula does not contain additional supportive ingredients found in several competitor products. Furthermore, product quality is not reinforced by patented ingredients. Customers can find many competitor products that contain several patented ingredients to ensure efficacy. Despite additional research, we were unable to locate a cGMP certification which would, otherwise, suggest that production adheres to quality processes. The lack of one is very concerning.
The manufacturer provides clear directions of how to use this product for best results. They suggest cleansing the face before use. Pat dry skin with the product and then gently rub it in. Users should dab a bit extra on problem areas. Allow the product to absorb into the skin for up to 5 minutes before applying makeup. Though they provide these directions, they fail to indicate how much of the active ingredients are present in the formula. This raises concerns over the strength and purity of this product and may render it less effective than alternatives on the market.
This product can be bought online from the manufacturer for $46.95. This is reduced from $49.95, which is not a substantial saving. The manufacturer regrets to inform potential customers as to how much product each bottle contains. This is very concerning as the price is significantly higher than many alternatives on the market. Long-term use is, therefore, not sustainable and not supported by package deals.
The manufacturer states that purchases are supported by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. These guarantees usually bode well for product efficacy, however, this particular guarantee is unclear and vague. This brings the reliability of the return policy into question and suggests that the manufacturer may not be confident in the product. An even greater concern is that there are limited customer reviews to support this product. This makes it difficult to assure efficacy. Customers may be better off searching for a more proven product.
My Skins Friend Organic Skin Lightener Review – Conclusion
This review of My Skins Friend Organic Skin Lightener presents some positive factors about the product. Firstly, it contains many important ingredients that lighten the skin. Secondly, the guarantee supports customer purchases. That said, the guarantee is vague and may not be reliable. The fact that there are so few customer reviews means we cannot assure efficacy. The extremely expensive price tag is not justified as the product lacks patented ingredients. In conclusion, we do not recommend this product.
