Hello my beautiful friends!
How are you all doing? Winter is finally over and spring is here now. I love spring because there is so much beauty to enjoy around us. But, it also signals the beginning of suntan, dry patchy skin, extra oiliness etc. I am dusky and tend to get tanned very easily. Suntan is my skin’s worst enemy. Let’s explore the role of this cream in my skincare regime today!
A few months ago, I had a terrible bout of acne and as a result of the anti acne medications, I suffered from dry skin also. I was in the worst phase of skin problems. After my acne had subsided, I started searching for an all-in-one cream that would give me 3 benefits – good moisturization, de-pigmentation and sun protection. After long hours of online research, I finally found this baby. It already had positive reviews, so I thought why not give it a try! Needless to say, the chance was worth it.
The O3+ Meladerm Whitening Cream formulated for use on Pigmented or All skin type gives professional whitening and moisturising results. This Meladerm whitening cream boosts density, vitality and comfort in skin and protects the skin from external environmental aggressions.
Concern – Dermal Whitening.
Skin Type – Pigmented, Dry, All skin type.
Benefit – Extreme Fairness Results.
How to Use:
Apply the Meladerm Lightening Cream on the face and gently rub in circular motion.
Three years from the date of manufacture.
INR 650, but I got it at a discounted price 560 for 50 ml.
My Experience with O3+ Dermal Zone Meladerm Lightening Cream SPF 40:
The packaging is nothing fancy. Plain and sturdy white tube packaging that has all the details printed over it black font with orange, silver and blue accents. It comes with a screw on cap, which closes well.
The cream is white in colour and has a medium consistency. It is very easy to spread and gets absorbed quickly. It does not leave behind any sticky or heavy feeling and I love this about O3+ Dermal Zone Meladerm Lightening Cream! I hate heavy face creams. It has a mild fragrance which is quite pleasant. Another great thing about this cream is that it is hypoallergenic. It did not cause any reaction to my super sensitive skin. So, I guess it is, to a large extent, free of comedogenic chemicals.
The cream provides good moisturization. A pea sized amount kept my skin moisturized from morning to evening during winter. My elder sister and I use this cream twice daily and one tube lasts more than 2 months. Coming to its de pigmentation power, I did not see any drastic improvements. But, combined with O3+ Brighten Up Toner, it has improved my sister’s acne marks. It has lightened them at least 2 shades which is quite outstanding considering it is a cosmetic product. Also, the cream has slowly improved the texture of my dull and dry skin. Now, my skin has a certain glow which it lacked 3 months ago.
It protects the skin from environmental pollution. As I am a student, I have to step outside my home and stay out for long hours daily. I have noticed that my skin does not feel as dull and dry as it used to before I started using this cream. It has many skin lightening agents which help to diminish sun tanning. Earlier, when I got tanned I would apply tomato, lemon or besan to get rid of it. Now, I simply wash my face using an AHAGLOW Skin Face Wash Gel and put a few drops of O3+ Brighten Up Toner on my skin and follow it up with this cream. Next day, I can see no signs of tan.
This cream claims to have SPF 40, but honestly, I see no difference in my skin. I still get tanned badly when I am wearing this cream. My sister who is not so sun sensitive thinks otherwise. She says that it helps to protect her skin from the harmful UV rays. Different skins, different stories.

Cons of O3+ Dermal Zone Meladerm Lightening Cream SPF 40:

Would I Recommend O3+ Dermal Zone Meladerm Lightening Cream SPF 40?
Yes, I will because it is a nice cream which fulfils most of the requirements of a normal skin. Beauties with damaged skin can try it, but you have to be patient with it. O3+ products really provide value for money!
