Where to buy hydroquinone

Where to buy hydroquinone

Postby adragail » Tue Mar 27, 2007 7:34 am

My PS just recommended that I use hyrdoquinone on my TT scar. He gave me a Rx for it. Do you ladies have any sites where to buy generic 4% or even 6%. I refuse to pay 80.00 for this.

I get Lustra AF online from Canadamedicineshoppe.com and no prescription is required.

It is great stuff...4% hydroquinone with sunscreen built right in.

About US$ 40.00 for a good size tube that will last a long, long time.
(Don't use too much!)

My age spots (I'm 55) on my face and hands have almost disappeared...I do not know what it does for scars, though.

Wow- mine is prescribed by my derm.and I'm paying $100.00 from her, $130 if I go to the drug store. It's been great for my age spots- does it work on scars??

A few weeks ago, I had purchased some generic hydroquinone 4% from an 'off' Canadian pharmacy, since my 'regular' one was out of Lustra AF, and the price was great (three 30 gram tubes for 59.99)...I have no idea which site it came from (I can't find it again, and there was no return address)--I forgot about it until I had to sign for the delivery!....the funniest is....it ended up being shipped from England (where it is outlawed!) and it was from some foreign country....no English at all on the tube or box...did have UVA and UVB protection...finally did some research into this unknown language...it is from Turkey. I like it better than the Lustra AF!

hydroquinone where to buy

Postby indyone » Fri Apr 06, 2007 3:03 pm

How does it differ from Porcelana which contains 2% hydroquinone???? I used an entire jar of that and it didn't help at all with a large sunspot on my hand. It just make a white ring around the sunspot that made it all the more noticeable! Hate to spend more money for the same result?
Anyone have any suggestions???

I found it! I got the 'generic' 4% hydroquinone from: www.getcanadiandrugs.com (for some reason, the hyperlink doesn't work on here, but if you type in the whole address in your search engine it does).... three 30 gram tubes for 59.99! And it has uva and uvb protection (although I don't know how much)...the name is in English "Expigment 4%" but nothing else is! It actually is shipped from England (but made in Turkey), and took a couple of weeks to get. My face does get slightly pink from it, but it actually got rid of all of my freckles in 2 weeks! And my skin looks as good as when I did the whole Obagi thing.

2% hydroquinone did nothing at all for me at all. I didn't get 'white rings' or 'white spots' as a couple of you have reported. Maybe you are more sensitive?

Is this the site you posted on 29 March that you couldn't remember the site from where it came from? I am running low so I might give it a try versus the other site. Thanks.

Indyone, I did 2% and it did nothing for me. Obvioulsy it is not that strong, I would try the 4%. I never saw white rings. I use it on my face, and it does fade freckles.

Happy Holidays everyone!!

Yes, that is the one I couldn't remember...then I looked at my cc statement, and there it was. If you go to a 'branded' hydroquinone on that site, and hit the drop down box, they give you the option for the generic...you have to sign for the package when it comes. If you have sensitive skin, I wouldn't necessarily suggest it, as usually I have no overt reaction to this and it did make my face overall a little 'pink'(looks healthy and adds some color, so I'm not complaining!)....(didn't sting or hurt or make it peel or turn red, though).
