    Hi

    I have hyperpigmentation on the chin and upper lip. It looks strange and grey when i put foundation on. Are there any creams or face washes anyone has tried which work? I've read about meladerm which has good reviews but theres also reviews saying its a scam and doesn't work. Confused!

    What works for me is putting on primer then press powder then foundation on the pigmented area, then do the rest of your face

    I have the same problem try using a colour corrector on the pigmentation. What i do is use a beauty blender drop 3 drops of oil on it and then blend in the colour corrector, then apply concealer on top, then foundation and add loose powder to set it all down. Plus there are many videos on you tube about applying makeup to pigmented areas

    Thank you. Wanted to use something someone has actually used rather than random reviews. Could you send me the link from where you purchase it from? Or an image of what it looks like so I know I'm purchasing the correct one! How long did you use it till you got results?

    kojie san soap on amazon
    dont just take my review, read the other ones too, some reviewers leave their skin type info, that could match yours.
    i used it every other night for the first two weeks and noticed that it worked for my scars, some scars faded really well, some are still stubborn. after that 2 weeks i used it less frequently, like twice a week just to cleanse my face and make it more clean.

    if you're planning on using it on your body, cut it up into 4 rectangles and store it in a jar otherwise the soap will be gone by the end of the month, if you're using it on your face just use as it is

    remember it stings and is quite strong. on your first use, lather it on your face and leave it on for 30seconds. after your 5th use, only then will ur skin be more used to it and u can leave it on for 1-2 minutes

    Thanks. I've received mine. Does yours have the name imprinted on the soap? Mine doesn't but I read online that some people did. Also read it smells citrusy, mine sort of does but it also leaves behind an after-smell, like a bitter or burnt smell. Please tell me yours does too?! Also doesn't really sting. Hope its not fake

    mine didn't have the name on it, and it does have this burnt smell afterwards, make sure to dry your face and moisturise after. some people skin are more sensitive than others, if you want the stinging cos you feel like that is an indication of it working, leave it on for 1-2 minutes and massage around. good luck.
