Anyone use Pevonia for lightening hyperpigmentation?

I'm looking for something to lighten some spots on my face that are not freckles; I have a lot of those and have no problem with them. Anyone familiar with this brand, or has used a product they highly recommend? The spots are the same color as my freckles but very large; mostly on left side of my face. I'll probably see a dermatologist but am curious about OTC products.

    They make a bunch of products. Did you mean their Lightening Cream? I looked at it online, and it contains arbutin, so it will probably lighten a little.

    I don't have a lot of hyperpigmentation, but I have some. It's very tough to get rid of. I have used a variety of products over the last year, and no one product does it all. They all do only a little bit. I use Retin-A, Vitamin C, mandelic acid, and a serum with something called belides extract (some sort of daisy derivative that is supposed to be the latest thing in natural skin lightening). I also make my own lightener with kojic acid, arbutin and wildberry extract. Even using all of this, I barely keep my mild hyperpigmentation under control.

    If your hyperpigmentation is very dark or large, you might want to consider physician treatment, possibly with lasers. Triluma is an Rx that contains Retin-A with 4% hydroquinone. It's ridiculously expensive (even through my Mexican source), but it probably works OK.

    I saw it on Paulas choice. It has arbutin and azelaic acid. My HP isn't any darker than my freckles but it is large. And I have large dark HP spot below one of my elbows.
