My Take on Fab India De-pigmentation Cream:
Few years back I was a casual undergraduate student who didn’t even use a face wash or a facial cream or compact .I just used to clean my face with soap and go to college after applying just a kohl. I never cared about my skin then and didn’t even know what a sunscreen was! So I started getting freckles on my face and neck which I was ignoring since a long time. After coming to Kolkata, I saw so many Bengali beauties with flawless and spotless skin. Even I wanted to have that kind of flawless skin. I am not a fan of fair skin as such, but I love even skin tone. I have been suffering from uneven skin tone since few years, so I thought to use Fab India’s Depigmentation cream after checking it out at City Centre, Kolkata. The description mentioned in the cream tub was really tempting enough to buy it. I had seen its ingredients then and was kind of skeptical to buy it as there is nothing herbals as such in this cream, its entirely a cocktail of some controversial chemical ingredients used in cosmetic industry for skin lightening.
I have used it for continuous one month. In this one month I saw lightening of the blemishes caused by my recent pimple break out. It lightened many of the spots on my face but didn’t help me entirely with the freckles problem. Its a good cream for treating  hyperpigmented area. It has lightened the hyperpigmented areas on my neck quite effectively.
The fragrance of the cream is very strong which I do not like at all. The texture of the cream is very smooth and soft, but it doesn’t get absorbed into skin easily. You have to massage a lot .When I used more quantity, the product didn’t get absorbed into my skin and formed a white greasy layer Yuck !

-Cream doesn’t get absorbed easily.
-If you take more quantity, then a greasy white layer forms on skinTop of Form.
-Quite pricy for 100 ml.
-Raised its price from Rs 250 to Rs 275.
-It doesn’t eliminate freckles entirely.
-Tub packaging, so not hygienic as have to dig my fingers all the time to use it.
-Available only at Fab India stores.

Rating: 3.25 out of 5
Will I Repurchase? No, Its fragrance is too strong for my liking and It has lots many chemical ingredients.
My Recommendation: You can try it out for lightening certain facial blemishes but it doesn’t eliminate freckles entirely and it contains lots of chemical ingredients like Kojic acid. So check the testers and do patch test on your skin before purchasing it.
This is my recent pic in which I am wearing my Favorite Lipstick Faces Moisture Extreme 'First Lady. Its a damn pretty shade.Do check it out all of you sweeties!
