I've been using this treatment daily for the last two months, and at best, my dark spot on my cheek is very very slightly lighter, if at all. Fortunately I bought a sample for $1, which was pretty generously sized. It'll probably last me several more months, but since the results are negligible to non-existent, I wouldn't repurchase this product.

This is a review for the version without SPF.
I bought this together with the Effaclar foaming gel and toner while on a trip in Paris. I have a few acne marks that I hoped this moisturiser would help minimise. After a month of using this, I see absolutely no difference at all. My scars are still there and have not faded. I also don't like that it doesn't spread very easily and is not particularly nourishing. I have since gone back to my beloved Boots Time Delay and have upped my water intake.

Well I canīt say much at the moment about the improvement of my dark spots but overall the cream feels fantastic on my skin, it leaves it with a healthy looking glow and has improved the texture of my skin as well as the little pimples around my jaw, it feels very moisturizing yet not greasy it absorbs in no time so you have to work it fast.
Itīs been around a week since Iīm using it under my sunblock even though this has an SPF of 15 but my dermatologist recommend me to use a 50+. If I see noticeable improvements on the dark spots I will update and let you guys know ;)
Update; I have used 2 tubes of this and I have seen ZERO improvement of my spots, wonīt repurchase again

I bought this product because of a review on Youtube where a girl said it would reduce the dark spots by 40%. I've been using this for a month twice a day, followed by a spf 60 moisturizer and have not a noticed any lightening effect. And if there is any lightening going on, it is probably 10%. I still see my sun spots when I take a photo of myself without makeup. Pretty disappointing!

OK, I bought this because I want to fade some sun damage and some aging spots. I don't belive though that this alone can do anything, pretty much any product is useless used alone, unless is Sunscreen I was simply looking for a moisturizer to boost and help my skincare routine with my Sunscreen and Tretinoin. Also the fact that it has SPF 15 / PPD11 was a good catch for me as well.
Now the product is a mess. I applied this Moisturizer and it balled up like crazy, it didn't sink in my skin at all, I felt like I used this and as I was puting it on it balled up so it was comming off again. They say it's a good Make Up Primer.... Well this is rubbish to be honest. Also like the previous reviwer has statated the Kojic Acid is at such low place in the list that is very unlikely that is an active ingredient and will help, even mildly.
I like La Roche Posay products, specially Sunscreens but this is just plain useless and I am guessing it's expensive too (don't know it was a present) I won't buy again. For a lightening product is much better to use a Serum with Kojic Acid like Garden Of Wisdom or SkinCeuticals Phyto+ .
OVERALL: This wants to do too much and does nothing because wants to be like a Sunscreen but for that is useless because the protections is weak. As a moisturizer is just not good enoguh for me. As for fading spots... you can dream baby this won't do a thing. I preffer to use a Sunscreen a lone, as a moisturizer any one will do and as a skin lightener look somewhere else ;)

I bought this while traveling overseas (where it's called Melani-D rather then Mela-D) and I love it as a moisturizer in the summertime. It keeps my skin bright and clear and it's a very soothing, comforting formula. (I have dry, sensitive skin.) Since sun brings out more pigment problems, I always use a higher SPF. However, the lightening action is not as fast as Obagji Sunfader. If you have a serious dark spot, I'd use Obagi to lighten it, then this can be maintenance.

I really like La Roche Posay products. I use the Toleriane line because my skin is very sensitive (pre-rosacea) I have combo skin that can be slightly oily in the summer and dehydrated in the winter. (I live in So. Cal. not too extreme weather.) I like this product. It's not greasy and goes on smoothly and sinks right in. I don't normally use a primer under my foundation but I found that this does a really good job. My foundation goes on better and wears better all day. At the end of the day I feel a little more "dewey" but when I look in the mirror, it still looks perfect. I can't tell if it's helping my light sunspots yet. I've only been using for a week. But I can tell that it doesn't irritate or make me break out. I'd buy it again.

I had to write this review because of the previous bad reviews on this product. First, I am not sure if the formulation has changed, but the product that I have (Mela-D with SPF 15) contains hydroquinone. Just to mention that since it appears a previous reviewer may have had a different formulation.
It works nicely for an allover brightener / lightener. It is not something that I would expect to lighten significant dark spots or freckles, etc. But for general all-purpose brightening it definitely works for me. I like the sunscreen in it too. One downside is a) the price, which was about $35 USD, and b) it was slightly greasy becasue of the sunscreen. I might repurchase this again but not sure.

I hate to have to give a bad review for a La Roche Posay product, cause I really believe that the company (owned by L'oreal, which is another thing about it I hate) does good business.
This is supposed to be a depigmenting moisturiser for daytime use.
Being a melasma sufferer that has tested the product for 2.5 months without combining it with any other active product, I have to say: CLOSE TO ZERO results.
This is something I should have expected:
First of all, my case is not just freckly spots, it is 2 rather large dark patches, one on both cheeks. Kojic Acid (which is the sole depigmenting ingredient), apparently can't do the job for me. I 've seen a SLIGHT improvement but that's that!
Second, you cannot expect adequate protection by an SPF factor of 15 when you suffer from melasma. You need above 30.
Thirdly and lastly, the LHA that are supposed to provide slight exfoliaton, are just a joke to my skin (note: my skin is not stubborn to beging with, but sensitive and easily irritated).
To sum up, it was a big disappointment for me after using up 2 tubes, but the good thing is that if you do not suffer from a severe case of dark spots and you cannot tolerate more serious depigmenting ingrediends (hydroquinone, etc.) you might benefit from this one.
It isn't anything like a miracle product, but is a basic good moisturiser, offering a little extras; in my opinion, it shouldn't.
