Sun damage seems to accumulate over the years. While you may not notice any on your face when you are a teenager, once you hit 30, dark spots and pigmented areas begin to appear. Naturally this is discouraging, but there are numerous options to consider when it comes to age spots and sun-damaged skin. One formula intended to assist with hyper pigmentation and uneven skin tone is La Roche-Posay Mela-D Dark Spots SPF 15. This $50 treatment is sold in a single-ounce tube, and can be applied in the AM and PM to clean facial skin.

Product Details

La Roche-Posay Mela-D Dark Spots SPF 15 is a multi-purpose formula that is claimed to assist the skin in three ways. First of all, this product contains sunscreen to shield the skin from damaging UV rays during the daytime. This treatment additionally aims to minimize existing dark patches and hyper-pigmented skin. La Roche-Posay Mela-D Dark Spots SPF 15 also functions as a moisturizer to combat dryness. Basically, this face treatment is suitable for anyone suffering from sun damage and hyper pigmentation.

There are four sunscreen ingredients included in La Roche-Posay Mela-D Dark Spots SPF 15. These are revealed as Oxybenzone 6%, Avobenzone 3%, Octocrylene 5%, and Octisalte 5%. With regular use, this treatment should help prevent future skin damage and prevent age spots. Vitamin E is used in this formula to help heal and hydrate the skin. However, there is no key ingredient mentioned for the reduction of existing dark patches and brown spots. Unfortunately there is no clinical research provided on La Roche-Posay Mela-D Dark Spots SPF 15 as support for this product’s effectiveness.

The Good

  • Vitamin E is used in this formula to help heal and moisturize.
  • This face treatment provides an SPF of 15, which may help prevent sun damage.
  • La Roche-Posay Mela-D Dark Spots SPF 15 is okay for all skin types.

The Bad

  • There is no key ingredient used in this product to reduce existing dark spots.
  • There are face moisturizers with more potent sunscreens that cost less money.
  • No positive user feedback in posted for La Roche-Posay Mela-D Dark Spots SPF 15.
  • This French skincare formula may be difficult to come by in local stores.

The Bottom Line

In the end, we cannot recommend La Roche-Posay Mela-D Dark Spots SPF 15. While it is nice to see that this face formula contains sunscreen and Vitamin E, this does not warrant its $50 price tag. After all, there are plenty of drugstore products available that offer these same ingredients. As for sun damage, dark patches, and age spots, La Roche-Posay Mela-D Dark Spots SPF 15 does not contain any key ingredients to help reduce hyper pigmentation at all.

Rejuval Skin Bottle

Top Anti-Aging Cream for 2015: Rejuval Skin

Editor's Review: 4.9 / 5.0

After looking at literally hundreds of wrinkle reduction and prevention treatments, Rejuval Skin is our top choice. This product offers customers a Risk-Free Trial, and makes sure to both repair and protect the skin without using harmful chemicals like paragons or fragrances. No other formula that we've seen takes such a holistic approach to skin care. Rejuval Skin contains the advanced scientifically proven ingredient Acetyl Hexapeptide-3, proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. When you factor in the trial offer, the potent formula, and the scientific studies posted on the official site, it's easy to see why Rejuval Skin is our top anti-aging pick. >> Read more about Rejuval Skin Go


(Optional- For Enhanced Results): Vivexin

Editor's Review: 4.6 / 5.0

We've reviewed thousands of anti-aging eye treatments, and we've never seen anything quite like this! Vivexin is an anti-aging, eye treatment formulated to lighten dark circles, lessen the appearance of bags under the eyes and minimize fine lines and crow's feet associated with premature skin aging. The three active ingredients in Vivexin - Haloxyl, Eyeliss and Matrixyl - are backed with clinical research and positive consumer testimonials. If that's not enough to convince consumers to try Vivexin, the company offers a 90-day money-back guarantee so consumers can see the changes in eye appearance with the option of returning the product if they are not convinced >> Read more about Vivexin Go
