I’ve bought and tried quite a few high price vitamin C and didn’t notice much of a difference and was gonna give up on it. Then on a whim I bought the L’Oreal Paris vitamin C at Walgreens cuz it was only $20 and it works so incredibly well I only use it a couple days a week! Plus it’s in a metal tube so it doesn’t get ruined by air and light. Highly recommend. Here’s a link to it on Amazon

I have the same skin tone as you with discoloration in the same spots around the mouth. I was prescribed a topical cream with 10% hydroquinone and smaller amounts of tretinoin and kojic acid. It worked — but if I stopped using it, even for just a couple of days, the discoloration would come back even darker. Plus I had a lot of redness and drying. I haven’t used HQ since.

The discoloration in my smile lines is about 90% diminished. I wish I could tell you just a couple of products that worked, but since I’m using so many it’s hard to tell what’s helping. You may have already tried these so apologies if I sound like a broken record:

  • Niacinamide: Daytime and nighttime – I use this Paula’s Choice toner (I use a cleanser from the same line but I don’t think it’s related to the lightening.) I used the Ordinary’s serum in the past. I used the serum at nighttime only since you’re not supposed to use it with Vitamin C or other actives.
  • Alpha-arbutin: Daytime and nighttime – HQ alternative which has given positive results and I haven’t noticed any relapse when I stop using it.
  • SkinCeuticals Discoloration Defense: Daytime and nighttime – I’ve only used it for a few weeks so far so it’s too soon to tell how much it works. I think it’s safe to use with the AA but I haven’t tried them together. I’ve just been using this in place of the AA.
  • Vitamin C: Daytime – I’ve used L’oreal and TruSkin. I’m now using SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF which is super pricy. I will probably go back to one of the more affordable brands since I haven’t noticed any dramatically different results.
  • Tinted mineral sunscreen: Daytime – A derm told me this is the best for darker skin tones. I use Cotz because it doesn’t make me look like a ghost lol.
  • Glycolic acid: Nighttime, once or twice a week when I’m not using the Discoloration Defense (not sure if they’re safe to use together). I use L’oreal.
  • Exfoliating mask: Nighttime, once a week. Honestly, I haven’t done this in a while but it’s supposed to help. I NEVER use the same night as the glycolic acid to avoid over-exfoliating. I try to space it out by at least 3 days. I use this mask from Origins.
  • Chemical peels: This is a more recent thing I’ve tried so too soon to tell how much of a difference it’s made vs the products I’m already using. I’ve only had 2 so far. It has lightened my acne scars. I’m hoping as I get more, the melasma marks will get better. The peel my aesthetician uses is the Perfect 10 Peel. She recommends getting them every 4 weeks. I personally can’t do it that often. The sucky part is the peeling looks pretty gross and you have to cease your normal skincare routine for about 10 days.

I hope this is helpful!

I think the Effaclar Duo+ is a unique product, definitely worth the splurge. But on me, I don’t find it’s moisturizing enough.

Yeah I would go for Vit C. I don’t have recommendation as currently I’m not using one, as I have already 3 actives in my routine (azelaic acid, benzoyl peroxide and tretinoin, I don’t count niacinamide as active but I do use it).

But my sister has been hooked with L’oreal Vit C 10% serum. I definitely see improvement on her skin tone! This one:


However, it’s in a silicone based. She doesn’t have any complaints with its texture or breakout, but I could see other people may not like it.

Otherwise, I know this sub favorite: Timeless C E Ferulic serum, Melano CC Essence, Maelove The Glow Maker
