  1. Hi, I tried using RDL once but I got a dark spot in my face. It makes me scared because it looks like a melasma. Is it possible to have a melasma after using RDL?

  2. Hi..Pls I am using RDL No.2,like I earlier explained,the skin in some parts are lighter than others especially my forehead is yet to show changes,is it normal because some think I’m using bleaching cream,would it with time even out ?

  3. Hi..I just got RDL No.2 and have been using it for about 2 weeks now every night .I have noticed my complexion is getting lighter cos it was one of the reasons I decided to start it,to lighten my skin which was dark due to excessive sun exposure.So some parts of my face is lighter while my forehead is yet to show any visible changes.I would like to know for how long do I need to use it for my tone and complexion to be even?

  4. Hi, I’m new to the RDL journey and I started with no2 but I now know I should of started with no3. My main concern is Melasma. I’ve been using no 2 for nearly two weeks. How long of a break to now start no 3 please ?

    1. Hello Herna,

      Thank you for reaching out and sharing your experience with the RDL journey. It’s great to hear that you’re looking to switch to RDL No. 3 and address your main concern of melasma.

      When transitioning from RDL No. 2 to No. 3, it is generally recommended to take a break of around one month before starting the new product. This break allows your skin to adjust and ensures a smoother transition between the two formulations. During this break period, it’s essential to continue using a suitable sunscreen and RDL cleanser and maintaining a consistent skincare routine to protect your skin and maintain its health.

    2. Is it normal to feel a burning sensation and my face turn red when using a moisturizer? I’m currently using rdl#2 and my face done peeling.

  5. Hi. I used RDL#3 on my armpits and the effect is so nice, it really whitens my armpits but the problem is the redness around the area. It’s not sore but it’s itchy and there are some little itchy bumps around it. What do I have to do about it? Can I switch to RDL#1 and continue to use it? Btw I am using aloe gel to moisturize.

    1. Hello Rona Ilas,

      It sounds like you may be experiencing an allergic or irritant reaction to the hydroquinone and tretinoin product you are using on your armpits. The redness, itching, and small bumps you are experiencing are common signs of a contact dermatitis reaction. This type of reaction can be caused by a number of factors, including the strength of the product, the frequency of use, and individual skin sensitivity.

      I would recommend discontinuing use of the hydroquinone and tretinoin product on your armpits, and allowing your skin to recover before using any other products. You can continue to use the aloe gel to soothe and moisturize your skin. If the itching and redness persist or worsen, you may want to consult with a dermatologist or other medical professional to ensure that your skin is not experiencing a serious reaction.

      Once your skin has fully healed, you may be able to use a milder whitening product, such as the melawhite RDL#1 that you mentioned. However, it’s important to start with a patch test on a small area of skin before using the product on a larger area to ensure that you don’t experience any further irritation or allergic reactions. Additionally, be sure to follow the product instructions carefully, and avoid overusing or over-applying the product to prevent further skin irritation.

    1. Skin peeling and redness may occur for a period of time after using certain skincare products with active ingredients such as Hydroquinone and Tretinoin. This is a normal reaction and may last for a few days to a 4 weeks, depending on the sensitivity of your skin. However, if the redness, itching, and burning sensation persist, it may be a sign of an allergic reaction or a more severe skin irritation. You can reduce the frequency of RDL use to be twice a week until your skin adjusts to the product, then increase the frequency gradually.

    3. Hi,
      My face is allergic. And my skin type is combination. Besides I have an acne scars and pimple spots on my face. And also my face is already peeled. Can I use this rdl baby face #3..?

  7. I’m using rdl #2 it’s been 3 days, it has very faint smell and I don’t feel anything on my skin while I apply it, does it mean it’s not working is it normal?

  8. I noticed that for the first few peels do lightened the pigmentation however, it comes back a little darker again. It is normal to turn back to abit darker after a few peels?

    1. This darkens skin you are talking about is because of redness but it comes out as darkens skin in some users’ skin. Always use sunscreen and renew sunscreen every 3 hours as long as you are exposed to sun.

    1. I’m using rdl 3 for a couple of days now and i’m turning red is it okay to used different sun screen and soap?

    2. I am using RDL @2 I was peeling already once and my face is red feels burning and tight. Is it okay to continue?

    1. Yes. But reduce the dose. Use it every other day or thrice a week until your skin adjusts to the product. Also, always use sunblock. Don’t rub hard against your skin. Only gently dab.
