Today we will review a product that is designed to help lighten and bright all skin types. The product is manufactured by NeoStrata and called HQ plus Lightening Gel. It claims to lighten age spots as well as brown spots. In addition to this the manufacturer states that the product can help you look younger and healthier. To find out more about this product, read our full review below.
- Hydroquinone 4%
- Hydroxy acids (5% glycolic acid and 5% gluconolactone)
NeoStrata HQ plus Lightening Gel seems to only contain two ingredients. The first ingredient is Hydroquinone which claims to help lighten the appearance of dark spots, spots caused by aging, or even scars caused by acne. 10% Hydroxy acids is combined to help provide optimal results. We have done some research and found that the product does not contain patented ingredients in comparison with other brands that contain at least 5 patented ingredients. Furthermore, the product does not contain clinically proven ingredients that are effective. These ingredients include gypsyweed, vitamin C and E, peppermint oil, and alpenrose. In addition to this, the product does not seem to hydrate the skin or smooth the skin tone.
When applying the gel, the manufacturer suggests that it be applied sparingly to the affected areas 1 to 2 times a day. Users can also follow the directions of a physician. In comparison with other brands, this product does not come in an easy to use airtight pump bottle. It rather comes in a tube with a screw top.
A 30 g tube of this gel can be purchased from the official website. It is sold at a reasonable price of $40.00, however, there are no discounts provided. In addition to this, there are no cost effective bundle deals to take advantage of.
NeoStrata does not offer their customers a money-back guarantee. This means that customers will not be able to return products that do not work for a full refund. This may indicate that the manufacturer is not confident in their product.
NeoStrata HQ plus Lightening Gel Review – Conclusion
NeoStrata HQ plus Lightening Gel provides a few positive aspects. The manufacturer ensures the user knows exactly how to use the product and how many times a day. However, there are also many negative aspects that we have found.
First of all, the product does not seem to add up in comparison with other brands. There are no patented ingredients and it does not seem to contain ingredients that are clinically proven to be effective. Furthermore, the product comes in a tube with a screw top which is not as convenient as a pump bottle. Also, it seems like the manufacturer does not care about their customer’s needs and interests as there are no affordable bundle deals or a money-back guarantee. The product may become very price over a long period of time and you may be at a financial risk.
Unfortunately, we have to conclude that NeoStrata HQ plus Lightening Gel does not seem to be an effective serum to help lighten and brighten the skin tone. There are many alternative products on the market that provide many more effective benefits.
