We don’t recommend using Faded in the same routine as other exfoliating AHAs, BHAs, retinols, and Tretinoin!

Faded contains tranexamic acid, which has been clinically-proven to help manage melasma!

Faded is a treatment serum and has a gel-like consistency. This means it should be used after cleansing and toning, and before moisturizing. It should be used after thinner serums and treatments.

You can either spot-treat or use Faded all over your face it's up to you!

Yes, Faded is safe for pregnant woman, but we recommend consulting with your doctor.

Faded gets its smell from Glutathione, an ingredient that is really effective at reducing the appearance of discoloration in weeks. Glutathione has a cysteine chain that causes it to have a sulfur like smell.

Faded has a shelf like of 9 months opened & 18 months unopened!

Faded is recyclable from the aluminum tube all the way to the box!

“I have only been using it for 2 weeks and I have already seen a noticeable lightening of my old (and new) acne scars. It also lightened an area of pigmentation I've had on the bridge of my nose for YEARS.”

Shay

“A formula from the skincare Gods. The absolute best product I’ve ever tried for fading my hyperpigmentation.”

Taylor

“I’ve been using Faded for about three weeks now and I already see a noticeable difference in the appearance of dark spots I’ve had for months now. To my surprise, the texture of my skin has also improved so much. ”

Changed my skin

Faded changed my skin completely. I literally don’t even worry anymore when I feel a pimple coming because I know faded will take care of it in a day or two. I wake up with my skin feeling so soft. Love it. I think it works best combined with a salicylic acid face wash. I personally use the cerave one. Wash, tone, moisturize and I put faded on top. *chefs kiss*.

Helping to fade my melasma!

I’m at the 8 week point and there is a very noticeable difference in my epidermal melasma! The pigment is much lighter and is fading. I can’t wait to see the 12-24 week results! Be patient because although I did see a difference in the first two weeks of use, it wasn’t until now (2 months in) that I realized how well this is truly working. Melasma is so stubborn. The ingredients in this product are nearly identical to the ingredients in higher cost melasma products that want you to pay for a monthly subscription. That being said, I would try this before spending $90 for a 3 month prescription.

amazing results

tldr: i finished one tube and just got two more if that says anything! i've used it almost every night on my face/body for about six months. it's been the best product to use for hyperpigmentation hands down i have subtle hyperpigmentation on my one side of my face extending from my cheek to my shoulder/back, nothing crazy but prominent enough that it bothered me as i was getting more into skincare and my skin wasnt breaking out or too dry/oily anymore but i still had uneven skin texture/tone. after using a whole tube of faded not only on my face, but all over my body on stretch marks, old knee scars, shoulder acne scars, i have some findings: 1. the hyperpigmentation on my face (it might be melasma as it's not related to any pimples or acne but idk it's more like a larger area of hyperpigmentation) has most definitely lightened, but sunscreen is also absolutely necessary to see results. also it doesn't all fade equally, there are some patches that are almost exactly the same skintone as the rest of my face, while there's still a visible difference in other parts of this larger patch. other hyperpigmentation on my face related to acne scars have faded even more, and some newer ones are almost completely gone. not super sure if it did a lot for my skin texture though. 2. not really a noticeable difference in body hyperpigmentation (it might have lightened or it might be my imagination lol), and it might be that the skin on my body is less sensitive than my face and needs a stronger formula? as of right now, i've also started using a salicylic acid body wash to add some exfoliation into my bodycare routine which I think would help since it's removing the dead skin/more pigmented layer of skin cells, but i haven't done this long enough to know how well it's been working (but my skin is hella smooth and I think exfoliation is essential for faded to work better so i recommend a SA body wash along with faded + body lotion if you use it for body hyperpigmentation) 3. super moisturizing, i was worried it might dry my skin out like some effective serums do, but i actually needed to modify my skincare routine to use fewer hydrating/moisturizing products since this did a lot. feels great on your skin, and a great experience if you hold your breath :) honestly the results i've gotten are so good that the smell is nothing to me and you get used to it lol in conclusion: buy it go
