3)It does not break me out.

4)It contains skin lightening ingredients like Lactic Acid and Niacinamide.

5)It lightens hyper-pigmentation skin issues like: Sun Tan, Acne marks, Melasma, Freckles, Skin discolourations due to hormonal changes etc.

6)It is paraben-free.

7) It has mild soothing fragrance.

8)It can be used during day/night.

Con's:

1)Kaya products are expensive.

Directions for Use:

Apply a thin layer of the gel on blemishes or entire face.Also do not forget to use a good sunscreen during the day to prevent sun damage.

Final Verdict:

I have been using Kaya Pigmentation Reducer gel for a few months now. Most cream bases of acne creams break me out so it was important for me to find a good gel base product like this one. I could definitely see lightening for acne blemishes within few weeks of usage.One more good thing is it does not cause any peeling or dryness so some times I apply 2-3 times in a day. So I definitely recommend others as well. I agree it is expensive but at the same time it is effective and comes with many positives as well.One tube does last almost 2 months even if used daily. Its frustrating but there are limited number of options available for acne prone skin. 

My Rating: 4/5
