Better than most expensive in U.S.
Works wonders for my melasma! This Gel lasts so much longer than prestige brand. This Gel takes a lot longer to oxidize due to the type of metal tube versus plastic. Works just as well or better than Blanche and it is a fraction of the cost. Blanche costs over $100. This is worth trying. Stock up though, because even this tube will oxidize before you use it all. Great product- my favorite on this website.
