Worked for me!
Posted 5/1/2012 by Promise
had terrible melasma on 80% of my face. After trying azelaic acid, Obagi, liquorice and differin and Retin A (none worked) I bought cosmelan 1 and 2 off ebay.I bought the new formula NOT the MD version. My Cosmelan had no hydroquinone. I followed the instructions and applied C1 for 10 hours on my Fitzpatrick IV skin. Day 1 and 2 after my face was red, hot, tight, burnt. Day 3 - 5 my face peeled like crazy and it hurt. I used C2 three times a day from day 2 after the peel. I stayed inside the whole time (i.e. for 5 days). On day 6 my melasma had disappeared by 85%.On day 7 I tried to buy a bottle of wine (to celebrate my new skin) from the supermarket and I got asked for ID (!!! they wouldn't sell it to me as I looked underage and I am 40 years old!!). I looked awful before cosmelan. I am still using cosmelan 2 twice a day (I did the peel 2 weeks ago) and my skin has not looked this good for years. All I can say is cosemelan saved me. I will keep on using it - I've already bought 2 more pots of C2 to keep as back ups so I can feel secure I can have clear skin. I love this stuff. It changed my life. PLEASE NOTE THOUGH... If you want to try it DO YOUR HOMEWORK first, read all the reviews you can find (I did this) and also try a test patch of C1 on your face and wait two weeks before you do the whole face just incase it does not work for you. I did this to make sure Cosmelan would not make my skin worse. For some people it does make their skin worse so you must test it first.
Cosmelan 2 works best
Posted 12/14/2011 by Nena
I have tried 5 different products for my skin pigmentation and the Cosmelan 2 is the only one of them that actually worked. Within weeks I was able to look at the results. I highly suggest this product. Let me know if you want me to send you some of my before and after pictures.

COSMELAN WORKED GREAT FOR ME. I PURCHASED THE MESEOESTIC 'COMPLETE MOISTURIZING SUNBLOCK' AND THE 'HYDRA-VITAL FACTOR K' WITH THE COSMELAN. I FIGURED IF I WAS GOING TO SPEND THE MONEY ON THE TREATMENT I WOULD PURCHASE THE OTHER PRODUCTS TO SEE RESULTS. MY BROWN SPOTS FADED! I USED THE KIT WITH THE MASK FIRST AT DOCTORS OFFICE, THEN I MAINTAINED WITH THE COSMELAN 2 MAINTENANCE DIPIGMENTATION CREAM. I HAVE BEEN TOLD EVEN IF YOU WERE ABLE TO FIND THE OLDER VERSION OF COSMELAN THE PRODUCT WOULD HAVE EXPIRED BY NOW AND NOT EVEN BE EFFECTIVE.

It's unfortunate that people don't seem to understand this product at all because it's intended use is after a professional peel treatment which renders most of the results. This is your home care after your professional treatment. The only reason pigment can get darker is if it is in fact working because the pigment is deep in the skin and it has to work its way up and out and then exfoliate away at the skin's surface. So, that being said you should get the actual treatment and then use the FULL 'maintenance' system and not just this cream. The reason the old system worked better was that they used an unsafe ingredient and changed it to a much safer formulation. Hydroquinone is a carcinogen and can cause more skin issues then you started with and it has been banded in many countries but not in the United States. One more comment I would like to make is that if you aren't staying out of the sun and wearing sunscreen then all of your pigment will always come back. Once you've had pigmentation you will always have it. You are only fading it. Even lasers will remove it and then it will always come back. It's just a matter of time and the sad truth of the matter. Too bad... great product. It's also funny that people don't understand the star rating system. 5 stars means 'great' and 1 means 'terrible'.
waste of money

This cream works great. Best to start with the Cosmelan KIT which has the mask included. Then follow up with the Maintance Cream twice daily for the first month, and once a day afterwards. I'm happy with the results, but best to stay out of sunlight. I also use their sunblock
THE BEST FOR EXTREMELY SENSITIVE SKIN

para las que viven en espa�a lo encuetran en madrid en un lugar llamado incastro, y para mi es la mejor crema, yo tengo la capa de la epidermis muy delgada a causa del roacutan,yo no puedo ir a limpiezas porque donde me presionan con el instrumento para sacar barros se me abre la piel, y mi acne no suele ser de muchos barritos sino mas bien postulas de vez en cuando me salen asi que cuando me aplico una crema para que aparesca el punto blanco que para este tipo de acne deberian de hacer mas cremas que abran el poro para sacar todo y no cerrarlo,bueno al presionar me queda marca y lo que hago es que inmediatamente me aplico dermamelan o cosmelan solo me la aplico por las noches con un ligero masaje y en verdad que no tengo ninguna marca en mi piel, es la mejor crema yo que vivo en mexico la mando a pedir a espa�a. para cualquier crema hay que tener pasciencia que nada es rapido ni siquiera los tratamientos de los dermatologos.(((( If somebody know where i can buy cosmelan in USA pls tell me, I will apreciatte it.)))))))

COSMELAN 2 WORKS YOU WILL SEE RESULTS WITH IN 2 WEEKS, IF YOU ARE DOING COSMELAN 1 PEEL DON'T USE COSMELAN 2 BEFORE 7 DAYS USE AFTER THE SKIN HEELS GOOD FORM THE COSMELAN 1 PEEL.
LIFE SAVER VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION READ

THE NEWEST FORMULA WORKS JUST LIKE THE OLD FORMULA. I HAVE BEEN USING COSMELAN FOR ABOUT A YEAR NOW, IT WORKS, IT WORKS, IT WORKS. I HAD THE WORST DISCOLORATION ANY BODY CAN HAVE. I DID THE COSMELAN 1 PEEL AND IT CHANGED MY LIFE FOR THE BETTER PEOPLE USED WIPE THEIR FACE WHEN THEY SEE MY FACE , NOT ANY MORE THANKS TO COSMELAN, IF YOU HAVE A MINOR PROBLEMS WITH PIGMONTATION USE COSMELAN 2, IF YOU HAVE A MAJOR PROBLEM DO THE PEEL WITH COSMELAN 1. TIPS IF YOU ARE DOING COSMELAN 1. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE (POLYSPORIN COMPLETE) MOST DRUG STORES SELL IT'S ONLY $10 DOLLARS. DAY 2 THE PEEL WILL START APPLY (HYDRA V FACTOR K) IT COMES WITH THE COSMELAN KIT. IF YOU FEEL PAIN USE POLYSPORN COMPLETE. DAY 4 AFTER THE SKIN PEELS THEN THEIR IS A MINOR AFTER PEEL DON'T TRY TO OPEN YOUR MOUTH TO MUCH UNLESS YOU USE (HYDRA V FACTOR K) OR POLYSPRN SKIN WILL GET TIGHTER THAT'S NORMAL NEVER RUB YOUR FACE AT ALL TIME WASH YOUR FACE GENTLY WITH YOUR HANDS. LET THE SKIN PEEL BY IT SELF DON'T FORCE IT. DON'T PUT TOO MUCH AROUND YOUR EYES IF YOUR EYES GET IRRITADED YOU COULD WASTE THE TREATMENT BY WASHING THE MASK OF BE CAREFUL GET SOME EYE DROPS VISINE RED OUT IS GOOD USE IT BEFORE THE MASK. DOWN TIME IS ABOUT 7 DAYS 2ND AN 3RD DAY YOUR SKIN WILL PEEL HARD THAT'S NORMAL DON'T FREAK OUT. IT'S ALL WORTH IT. COSMELAN 1 IT'S DONE AT SOME DERMATOLIGIS OFFICES. USE GOOGLE TO FIND ONE. I DID SO MUCH RESARCH ABOUT SKIN CARE BELIEVE ME. AS OF SEP, 2008. GOOD LUCK. GOD KNOWS WHAT TOMORROW BRINGS. NEVER GIVE UP.

I have sun damage, melasma and slight acne scars on my face. I have tried everything on the market until I found a company that uses Cosmelan. I didn't see much improvment in the first 4 weeks. Just had my second Cosmelan 1 mask and its still not getting any better. Thanks for taking my money. I feel horrible.
Only thing that works

Ive tried Obagi and so many chemical peels that Ive lost count. The Cosmelan is the only one that has worked.

Product worked great for me not sure if im using old or new formula but i love it
Old formula is amazing
Posted 5/22/2008 by Anonymous
I have not tried the new formula, but I did the peel with the Cosmelan 1 followed by the Cosmelan 2 cream and I have to say that it is the best peal that I have ever done! I hope that they have not changed the formula so much that it doesn't work any more!!!!

SINCE I WAS SO UNCOMFORTABLE WITH THE BROWN SPOTS ON MY FACE, I READ ABOUT COSMELAN. THE SAME DAY I WENT IN FOR MY CONSULTATION, I DID THE TREATMENT, THE 1 & 2. I WAS VERY HAPPY WITH THE RESULTS, EVEN MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS NOTICE THE CHANGE...SAD TO SAY, IT DIDN'T LAST LONG. DIRECTION SAY TO USE IT 3 TIMES FOR 2 WEEKS AFTER THE FIRST TREATMENT...AFTER USE TWICE A DAY...I HAVE TO USE IT 3 TIMES A DAY TO GET BETTER RESULTS. AFTER THE FIRST JAR, I PURCHASED ANOTHER ONE, VERY EXPENSIVE, 150.00...THE MINUTE I STARTED USING THAT JAR, I NOTICED MY BROWN SPOTS ARE MOVE VISIBLE NOW, I WENT IN TO TALK TO THE DOCTOR, AND TOLD HER ABOUT THE JAR I'M USING. SHE SAID ITS THE SAME AS THE OTHER, BUT I KEPT TELLING HER SOMETHING IS JUST NOT RIGHT ABOUT THE 2ND JAR THAT I BOUGHT. SHE SAID SHE'LL LOOK INTO IT, AND SHE SAID TO CONTINUE USING. I'M USING IT STILL, AT THE SAME TIME, WORRY THAT IT IS ONLY MAKING IT WORSE. NOW I'M GONNA TRY SOMETHING ELSE. I THINK THE JAR THAT I HAVE NOW, THEY CHANGE THE FORMULA, IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE THE FIRST ONE I GOT. NOT HAPPY RIGHT NOW...
