Brightening & Clearing Gel

Pre-Orders ship in 3 weeks.

Sun-damaged, scarred skin? 

This gel serum gently fades the look of your most stubborn marks, scars, and spots so that you can kick back and let your worries fade away. 

Faded has a sulfur-like smell. 

We do not recommend using Faded in the same routine with AHAs, BHAs, or retinol.

“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. ”

Amazing product and customer service

I've been using this product for a little over two months and the difference it made in my skin is crazy. From helping with texture to lightening my post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. I purchased one for my friend and the package wasn't delivered (not topicals fault). When I reached out to them to let them know they were super helpful and made sure to figure out how to get me my product. I highly recommend it to everyone. Didn't notice as bad of a smell as the other reviews.

Love it but confused

This was an absolute bliss to use. I have definitely seen some change in my dark spots. I had to stop my Maelove vitamin c serum during this application as there is niacinamide in it. I was wondering if there is a way to incorporate both of them in the same routine... please let me know if you do.

LOVE LOVE LOVE

I can honestly say this product is WORTH the hype. I’m so glad I bought it. UglyDucklingSkincare raves about it, so I wanted to try it. It’s helped so much with the hormonal acne on my jaw and neck. Each morning I wake up after using Faded, my skin is happy (versus the normal angry mornings), hydrated and it’s honestly just a great confidence boosted! Yes, it has a weird scent, but it goes away quickly and I don’t even notice it any more! Highly recommend this product!

Effective on Tan/Olive Skin

This is the only product I have used that has been effective in lightening my hyperpigmentation. I’m olive toned, in my 30s and still get acne. My acne often leaves horrible hyperpigmentation that can last more than a year. I’ve only been using this product for a week or two and my hyperpigmentation has lightened so much on new and old marks. I also have a non-acne related hyperpigmentation mark/scar that has been on my body for about 10 years and it is almost gone already!! Anyone with acne or hyperpigmentation knows how depressing it can be, especially when you have hyperpigmentation on areas that aren’t as easy to cover up with makeup, like your back or chest. The product smells for a few seconds, the scent doesn’t linger in the air or on the skin. It is well worth smelling an unpleasant smell for a few seconds to get rid of marks on your body that lower your self esteem. I’m so thankful to have found this product.
