Before you read any further, please be warned that this brand has stirred quite a lot of controversy and also banned in some Asian countries! I am not advising anybody to try it out. I just want to share what I know and read about it.

Now, the controversy is that the yellow cream (on the left) has of Mercury levels exceeding the 'allowable limit one part per million.' Because of this, this cream was banned in some parts of Asia. Although, there hasn't been any proof of mercury poisoning (at least not that I know of) in people who have used it (Please read around about what Mercury Poisoning can do)
The white cream, however, does not contain Mercury (according to what I read on the internet), which is why most people just use the white cream. But in extreme case of Melasma, people use the yellow cream for quick results. I, of all people understand what these people go through living with Melasma, because I have gone through the same myself.
Does the yellow cream work? YES. It did remove most of my cousin sister's butterfly spots on her nose and cheeks. That's is the reason I asked her to get this for me. Of course, she had no idea about the Mercury and all that before she used it, until I got my hands on these and did some research on the net. And yes, I've advised her to not use the yellow cream anymore.
Some people just use the white cream.
Who SHOULD NOT use these creams? Pregnant and lactating women.
Price ~ Rs.250
Will I use them on myself? YES. On my freckle-like dark sun/age spots and a bit of light Melasma on my forehead. But just the white one initially. I MIGHT use a bit of the yellow one too if the white one doesn't do anything, but only for 5-10 mins a day and wash it off.
I'll say it again, please use your own judgement before trying anything I mention on this site. Please read the Reviews & Disclaimer in the About page.
So, any of you heard about these or tried them? Do share if you have.
