|La Roche-Posay Mela-D Dark Spots SPF 15||
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.
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 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.
