Here is the two step jar of Elure, the new skin brightening agent. The jar is divided into two compartments. As per instructions, I used the first little spatula to put a dab of cream from the first side on the BIG FRECKLE, waited a minute then spread the same amount from side two on the same spot. Totally simple, but I’ve yet to get into a routinue to do it twice a day. So far, I’ve put on about half the recommended doses. I’ve got to step up my game to give it a legitimate chance to work. I keep forgetting to put it on either in the morning or evening. I think that if I was using on my face, it would be easier to remember, and just add it to my skin care routinue– but I’m not used to treating my forearm twice a day. Guidelines are also to top the treated areas with a sunscreen but since sweater weather is here, the arms are not exposed to the skin, and I skip this step.
On the plus side, I didn’t have any irritation or rednesss that has been a problem with other skin lighteners. Doctors also recommend combining Elure with other brighteners such as glycolic acid, kojic acid and arbutin. I’m going to try that in the next round, but right now I want to see what this contender can do all by itself.
