    This is helping me keep my melasma under control!

    I’m going to be very honest and say that I have Melasma that always comes back. Summer heat/sun, hormones and my affinity for hot yoga classes and sweaty workouts are my worst enemies when it comes to hyperpigmentation. I do my best to balance my life with a product like Dr. Koo’s Pigment Refiner [****], and not give up on the things I love or my favorite season of the year :) This has helped me most to keep my Melasma from getting darker and blotchier. It lightens and fades my spots to look more like light freckles (which I’m good with!) and allows me to apply my makeup flawlessly. What I noticed is that I didn’t experience any dryness or irritation in making the change from Level 2 to [****]! And I always use SPF, which is easily layered on top since [****] isn’t too thick and not greasy at all.

    works like a charm

    Dr Koo amazes me in her skin care products as they all work as she says they will! I know she uses her own products and her skin is fantastic. This product is working like a charm and getting rid of my brown spots, I use most of her skin care products and they all work together to accomplish beautiful skin. Thank you Dr Koo for another great product, which I love the new dispenser. I use this on my hands also, and it is fading the brown spots.

    I don't know enough about the product but I will say the product, texture, color and packaging this replaced seems better. I do not like the new packaging and it does not seem like you are getting the same volume of product. I loved the brown pudding color of the old product. I haven't given the new product effect on my skin enough time to determine if it is good but I feel that its about the same as before... certainly not worse than the initial product I loved :0)

    We want you to love your skin and your experience with Private Practice by Dr Koo! Please contact us, 314.984.8331, and we can make sure your regimen and products are working or refund your money!
