Hydroquinone 4% Cream Review 2019

Have you been dealing with acne scars and dark spots? Today, I have a Hydroquinone 4% Cream Review just for you.

To be honest, I’m not new to hydroquinone. I’ve used it before but only prescribed by a skin clinic. Now, it’s a different story as it’s recommended by my dermatologist after a long isotretinoin journey.

Hydroquinone 4% Cream Review

Like any other skin whitening product, it has adverse effects. However, if you know how to use it properly, you’ll only end up with your desired result.

Read my hydroquinone in fading dark spots article if you’re so inclined.

Please know that the hydroquinone cream that I’m making a review of may have a different manufacturer than yours so I can’t guarantee that we’ll have the exact same results.


For the treatment of skin in hyperpigmentation conditions such as chloasma (melasma), freckles, and lentigines (small macules that resemble freckles)

Personally, I don’t think that they added that it’s also one of the most potent skin whitening ingredients because they don’t want people to overdose on it.

First Impression


The hydroquinone cream that I have is made by Stalder Laboratories. Packaging is like any other medicated cream jar.

Suffice to say, it’s not exciting.

Let’s head on to the most vital part of this Hydroquinone 4% Cream Review.

My Experience

Scent is similar of a Ben-Gay cream.

Texture reminds me of a regular body lotion; not too watery nor creamy.

Even if only a thin layer is applied, I find that it can suffocate the pores as it makes my face sweat within just 5 minutes.

However, I don’t really mind because it goes away right before I fall asleep.

Do not use it on the day time because it increases skin’s sensitivity to the sun like any other skin bleaching product would.

Primary effect that I’ve noticed is overall skin tone lightening. Apart from that, the scars from my face also lightened significantly in just around 2 weeks of use.

Mild itchiness will be felt but very tolerable. However, if you really have sensitive skin and breakout in rashes, stop immediately.

I don’t only use it on my face. I apply it on my neck as well.


It would look totally silly if my face is significantly whiter than the rest of my body. We’re not trying to look like Sayuri from Memoirs of a Geisha in this blog.

Final Words

A very effective product but must come with a caution. I am only using it because my dermatologist recommended it for me. If she didn’t give me the green light, I wouldn’t go anywhere near it.

Retails at only 350 PHP and can last up to 3 weeks, a true steal!
