Melaglow Rich Cream Review

Yay!! I am RICH I am RICH :-). Naaaah I haven’t struck gold literally as you are all thinking. But my skin definitely looks rich and radiant after using this cream and I am loving it. Alright I will stop playing around and let you know the cream which I am using. The cream is from Abbott Healthcare called Melaglow Rich. I was using a depigmentation cream earlier and was even happy about the results. But when I ran out of the cream I came across this awesome cream in the med store and decided to give it a try. It is basically a skin brightening and lightening cream used for hyper-pigmentation skin conditions including brown spots.

Melaglow

Melaglow Rich Cream

What does the product claim:

Melaglow Rich is a comprehensive , phytochemical formula with effective depigmenting action that lightens the dark spots/patches & helps maintain even skin tone.

Precautions for use:

In few sensitive individuals a slight tingling sensation may occur upon application. This is however temporary and related to the products activity. If symptoms persist, consult your doctor.

Ingredients:

Licorice extract 40% (CA) 0.120% w/w, pTerowhite 90% 0.120% w/w, Arbutin 2.00% w/w, Niacinamide 4.00% w/w

Other Active Ingredients:

Kojic acid dipalmitate, Soy isoflavones 40% WS, Ascorbyl glucoside, Glycolic acid.

My Take On Melaglow Rich:

I am always unhappy about the under eye dark circles which I have since ages. That’s usually caused by stress or heredity. In my case it may be the latter.

I started using this cream every other day before hitting the bed in the night.  But they recommend to apply twice daily for best results. I did not want to take risk by applying daily due to my sensitive skin. Definitely I had this tingling sensation when I applied this cream on the first day which made me little uncomfortable but disappeared after sometime and I was ok. I did not see any results even after using it for almost a month. May be I was using it sparingly. Then I started using everyday but my skin reacted very badly. My skin became very dry and started to peel. My whole face was burning and I had to slather on moisturizer to cool my skin. I realized my mistake and discontinued using the cream for few days. When my skin got back to normal I started using the cream again every other day as I was using it earlier. This time it was perfect, no dryness or flaking of the skin. At the end of the second month I could see beautiful results.  My under eye dark circles had considerably lightened and my overall skin texture looked great. I am sure using daily would have given me quick results but had to bear the brunt of using it everyday. What I like about the cream is it is made of phytochemicals which is derived from nature(plants) and is absolutely safe to use if you have normal skin. It is strongly recommended to use a sunscreen everyday to achieve better results. Priced at Rs. 348/- the cream is available at all leading medical stores. So grab your Melaglow and become RICH today!! 😉

    • Hello Sumita,
      What’s up? Yes you can use this cream for your scars. It will definitely help in reducing the scars overtime and give a good healthy glow. Apply this cream every night before hitting the bed and use sunscreen in the morning.

        • Hi Vanushri,
          How are you doing? Yes this cream does brighten the face but I cannot say whether it can change one’s skin tone permanently. But as long as you are using this cream it gives excellent results.
          Cheers!!

      • Swathi

        • Hi Swathi,
          Hope you are doing good? Probably you are using this cream too often. Use melaglow rich cream every other day in the night. It is strongly advisable to limit sun exposure while using this cream. Apply sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30 during the day. Apply a good moisturizer if your skin is dry.
          Cheers!!

  2. Pooja

    Hi , for how many hours it should be applied on the face,. As I consulted the pharmacist and he said minimum 3 hours

    • Hiii Pooja,
      Thanks for stopping by. It is always better to consult a dermatologist than the pharmacist. If you are not sensitive to any of the ingredients you can apply the cream in the night and wash off in the morning. No matter what season it is, never forget to apply a sunscreen in the morning when you go out in the sun.
      Cheers!!
      Anu :-)

  3. Is it use to change the skin clr i want clr improvement

    • Hello Dhanachavali,
      Yes it does improve the skin tone to a great extent. You can use this cream to lighten and remove scars.
      Thanks!!
      Anu :-)

  4. Tnq sooo much ☺😊

    • Are side effects ????

      • Hello Dhana,
        No side effects and you can use this cream as long as you get the desired results. But keep in mind to apply sunscreen when you go out in the sun as this cream is photo sensitive.
        Anu:-)

  5. Annu

    Which sun screen is effective with Melaglow cream. Kindly suggest.

    • Hello from Anu to Annu:-)
      I do not know your skin type? Depending upon your skin type you can choose the sunscreen. As of now I am using Suncros Soft Gel. I have reviewed about the product too. You can go through it.
      Thanks :-) :-)

  6. Puneet

    Is this cream effective for oily-skinned ppl? Bcoz its creamy layer makes my skin quite oily and shiny.

    • Hello Puneet,
      How are you doing? This cream is actually meant for oily and acne prone skin. It helps in removing the excess sebum and makes the skin radiant. Apply it during the night before you hit the bed and wash off with mild cleanser in the morning. Use a sunscreen before you step out in the sun. This cream will definitely help you to get rid off acne and pigmentation.
      Cheers!!
      Anu :-)

      • Puneet

        Thank you ma’am. Also can I apply this cream in the morning and then use a sunscreen over it? It says twice a day and I have to lighten my skin ASAP!

        • Dear Puneet,
          It is always better to avoid skin lightening creams during the day as certain ingredients in the product can make your skin sensitive to the sun rays which might cause itching or burning.
          Anu :-)

  7. Pawan

    Hi, I have dark face but my whole body is light I want to get my body color on my face what should I do can I use melaglow rich cream and how long can I use it?

    • What’s up Pawan?? Thanks for stopping by :-) Probably you are too much exposed to the sun. Apply sunscreen with SPF of 50+ in the morning and use this cream in the night. Make sure you protect your face from sun when you are outside. You can apply this cream until you get your desired results. Long term usage will not harm or have any side effects if used properly.
      Cheers!!
      Anu :-)

  8. Vinita

    Hi, I have pigmentation on my forehead, nose and on my upper cheeks which I want to get rid of. I workout outdoor everyday in the morning from 7-10am. Though I try and avoid the sun as much as possible but I am still outside. Will this cream still help me considering I am exposed to the sun rays in the morning? I hope applying cream in the night won’t have side effects if exposed to the sun in the morning for about 3-4 hours? I do apply SPF 50 sunscreen in the morning though..

    • Hello Vinita,
      Good to see you here. You can surely apply this cream for your hyper-pigmentation and uneven skin tone. Use this cream only in the night after cleansing. Please apply a sweat and water proof sunscreen during your workouts in the morning because the ingredients in the lightening cream can make your skin photo sensitive to the sun. Apply suncros aqua gel or suncros soft gel sunscreen depending on your skin type (Please go through my reviews on the same). Follow this regime and let me know your feedback.
      Cheers!!
      Anu :-)

  9. Nibha

    hi
    its just three days i have started using melaglow cream not the rich one, after consulting a dermatologist , as per him melasma has started on my cheeks , i just want to know that how long does this ointment takes to show its results beacause i am worried about my problem.
    He has also recomended me koji plus tx cream it would be great if you can help with the reviews about that too.

    • Hello Nibha,
      Glad to hear from you. Melasma is skin discoloration or brown patches which most people get it on their cheeks, particularly common in women, especially pregnant women. Both Melaglow and koji plus are de-pigmentation creams which helps in lightening the skin. Have reviewed a product called Clearz plus which is similar to Koji plus cream. The results may vary depending upon the severity of the problem. But you will definitely get results gradually. Try melaglow rich cream which already has kojic acid in it instead of melaglow cream. So that you do not have to use two creams. Apply Melaglow rich cream only in the night before going to bed. I hope your dermatologist has suggested a broad-spectrum sunscreen to apply in the morning? As far as possible try and avoid going out in the sun between 10am-4pm. Never forget to apply sunscreen, even while you are indoors. Hope my suggestion helps you.
      Thanks!!
      Anu :-)

    • Princy

      My dermatologist suggest me use melaglow cream.melaglow or melaglow rich cream is good for me.I want increase my skin tone. Before I used melacare it has good result but it contains steroid. Melaglow contains any steroid.? I can use this cream for long term?. After I stop using this cream my skin tone changed to black?

      • Hello Princy,
        How have you been? Depending upon your skin type your dermatologist may have suggested a cream to you. You will get good results once you start using it. Just follow the instructions properly and stick to it. Melaglow does not contain any steroids and is safe for long term use. Use melaglow only in the night and apply sunscreen in the morning.
        Cheers!!

  10. Priya

    Hi Anu
    Thanks for your wonderful review.
    I read in some websites that melaglow contains hydraquionine and tretinoin. Is is true?

    And also what is the difference between melaglow and melaglow rich?

    • Heya Priya,
      How are you doing? Thanks for stopping by :-) As per my knowledge Melaglow and Melaglow rich creams does not contain hydroquinone. Both creams are skin lightening creams. Melaglow cream has turmeric extracts which takes longer time to show results. Melaglow rich cream has much stronger ingredients like kojic and glycolic acid which gives much faster results.
      Thank You
      Cheers!! :-)

  11. Anand

    Hi Anu,

    I was working in Chennai for the past 4 years due to which my face and my neck got badly tan , my chest and stomach colour is fair.

    Can I use melaglow to de-tan my face and neck colour?

    • What’s up Anand?
      Are you not applying any sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful sun rays? You can apply Melaglow Rich cream to de-tan your skin. It is an excellent de-pigmentation cream which gradually lightens the skin. Use this cream only in the night before you go to bed and apply a broad spectrum sunscreen in the morning.
      Cheers!!
      Anu :-)

  12. Simi

    Hi mam,I have sensitive skin can I use melaglow I have a melasma on my skin,,and plz suggest me a good sunscreen becoz I have oily skin,whenever I used any sunscreen my face after that my skin looks very oily and dark,, plz help me

    • Hey Simi,
      Thanks for stopping by. You can use this cream for your problem. It will surely help in lightening your skin. Even I have sensitive skin, so I usually apply this cream every other day only during the nights. I apply this cream combined with moisturizer as I have very dry and sensitive skin. You can also mix this cream with moisturizer like aloederm, emolene or cetaphil cream. Use Suncros soft gel sunscreen in the morning. It is best suited for oily and sensitive skin. (You can see my review on the same). Be patient to get the results. Hope this regime solves your problem.
      Thank you!!
      Peace :-)

  13. Avdhesh

    Is melaglow rich also used to bring back d natural color of d skin which has taken white spots

    • Hiiii Avdesh,
      Thanks for stopping by. I am not sure if this cream helps in treating leukoderma or vitiligo. Infact as per my knowledge vitiligo cannot be permanently cured. This cream may or may not help in this case. Kindly consult a dermatologist for this type of condition.
      Cheers!!
      Anu :-)

  14. Avdhesh

    I mean ,in leukoderma

  15. Sreeju

    HI
    can i use this for dark shadows in my eye? My skin type is dray
    Thanks

    • Hello Sreeju,
      How are you doing? You can use this cream under your eyes. The presence of acids in the cream may cause irritation if the cream gets into the eyes or nostrils. So make sure you do not apply very near to your eyes or nostrils. You can apply a good moisturizer after applying melaglow rich cream if you have very dry skin.
      Thank You!!
      Anu :-)

  16. Rishikanth

    Hello. Wanted to ask if these creams go on sunscreen on sunscreen goes over them?
    Will it not cause any reactions?

    • Hey Rishikanth,
      What’s up? It is better to avoid using these creams in the morning. Due to the presence of natural acids in the cream the skin may get irritated. It is best to use the cream in the night to avoid any allergic reactions.
      Cheers!!
      Anu :-)

  17. Sam

    Can i use melaglow rich cream for regular basis? Any side effects If I use this cream for long time? & if I discontinue this cream, any chances from becoming dark??

    • Hello Samrat,
      Thanks for stopping by. You can use this cream on a long term basis. It contains natural acids to lighten your skin. To maintain the same you should apply sunscreen everyday whenever you go out or even when you are indoors for that matter.
      Cheers!!
      Anu :-)

  18. @shvin

    Hi , I have a wheatish tanned skin tone . I started using Melaglow rich but within a day of using it I could see very small bubbles everywhere on my face and sometimes it has itchy effect . I am worried if i should continue or discontinue this creme as you have mentioned u went through the same side effect. Did u also had same effect (bubbles on face).
    Thanks in Advance!

    • Hiiii Nida,
      How have you been? Probably you are allergic to glycolic and kojic (natural) acids present in the cream. Even I experienced a tingling sensation when I first applied the cream but got used to it gradually. Why don’t you try applying the cream every other night instead of every night. Apply moisturizer after applying Melaglow Rich cream. This will definitely help reduce itchiness. Hope this helps you.
      Cheers!!
      Anu :-)

  19. Nabeel

    Does this make the skin black after a week of application because as u mentioned it has glycolic acid as an active ingredient which is also a skin peeling substance which makes skin peel off making it black in colour first
    So is it so just like a glycolic acid peeling cream with with a strength of 12%or is it something different?
    Please reply .

    • Hey Nabeel,
      How are you doing? Glycolic acid does not make the skin dark as far as your skin is not exposed to direct sunlight. That is why dermatologists recommend applying sunscreen when on glycolic creams or peels treatment. The strength of this cream is quite less when compared to glycolic peels. Dermatologists use higher concentrations of glycolic acid during chemical peel treatment. This is cream is very safe to use and can be used for longer periods. You do experience a peeling effect as you mentioned as the glycolic acid present in the cream sloughs off dead skin to reveal newer and brighter skin. Please do apply a sunscreen when using this cream.
      Cheers!!
      Anu :-)

  20. Nabeel

    Does this cream makes skin look black after a week of application
    Just like a glycolic acid peeling cream does
    Because as u mentioned it has glycolic acid in it too as an active ingredient
    And it makes skin totally black within first week before peeling the hyperpigmented skin
    So if it is soo the do share the same with me

  21. Rw

    Hey …I have been prescribed this cream by my dermatologist…but I also have to use sunscreen …so how to apply both of them at same time ? Will it cause any problem …and which is is to be applied first ?

    • Hey Rushita,
      Good to see your comment. It is always desirable to apply skin lightening creams in the night. Some people may be sensitive to the ingredients in the cream. Apply Melaglow rich cream in the night before going to bed and use sunscreen in the morning.
      Cheers!!
      Anu :-)

  22. Papai

    Hi Madam, I’m using Melaglow rich cream from past 1month. But I didn’t see any visible fairness on my face.. Previously I used Malacare cream for 3years which is Hydroquinone based cream. That time my face was very fair & glow. But I discontinued that Melacare when I read that cream causes skin cancer, after that my skin becoming very darker day by day. Now what should I do?
    Now I’m using Melaglow rich cream regular basis for glowing my skin, which I had previously when I was using melacare. But how long it can take to return my previous skin which was very healthy and glowing. Plz help me..

    • Hello Papai,
      Thanks for stopping by. Skin lightening creams helps in reducing hyper-pigmentation, blemishes, dark spots and acne scars. It does not really change one’s skin color. But yes it does impart a healthy glow. Melacare as you mentioned is a hydroquinone (steriod) based cream, though gives quick results is not recommended for long term use. On the other hand Melaglow rich cream is much safer to use for longer periods. Never miss applying a sunscreen while using these creams. Apply melaglow rich cream in the night and use sunscreen in the morning.
      Cheers!!
      Anu :-) :-)

  23. Joel

    Hai mam I using mela glow rich from 2 days . No result came. How many days take for result pls say soon as possible..

    • Hey Joel,
      What’s up? You cannot get any results by using the cream for two days. You will see visible changes in 4 weeks. Just that do not forget to apply sunscreen in the morning while on this cream. Exposure to direct sunlight without using a sunscreen is a big no no. Hope you will get good results soon.
      Cheers!!
      Anu :-)

  24. meenakshi handa

    • Hello Meenakshi,
      Thanks for stopping by. Both Melaglow rich and sabiglow creams are de-pigmentation and skin lightening creams. It is always advisable to use these creams during the night. Apply sunscreen during the day. You can use these creams for longer periods and is safe to use.

        Anitha
        I have dry skin can i use melaglow rich cream?

        • Hello Anitha,

          Glad to see your message. You can apply Melaglow Rich cream by combining with a moisturizer. Take equal quantities of both the creams and apply in the night. Use it every other day that is alternate days. Use sunscreen in the morning.
          Cheers!!
          Anu :-)

          • Thanks for your info pls suggest moisturizer for dry skin

          • Hey Anitha,
            My best picks are emolene, aloederm and cetaphil DAM creams. Go for Cetaphil DAM cream if your skin is very dry. Other two creams are suitable for all types of skin.
            Anu :-) :-)

          • Thank you mam

  26. Farheen

    Hello…my dermatologist suggest me this melaglow rich creme …but sometimes i do natural remedies for hyperpigmentation so any side effect will come or not?

    • Hello Farheen,
      Glad you stopped by. If natural remedies are helping you in getting rid of hyper-pigmentation then why do you want to use Melaglow Rich cream? If you are keen to use both then you can go ahead and try it. There won’t be any major side effects if you are not allergic to any of the ingredients in the cream. Some people are allergic to glycolic acid. Please apply sunscreen when you go out in the sun when you on melaglow rich cream treatment.
      Cheers!!
      Anu:-)

  27. Farheen

    Thanks for replying but i saw that afyer applying natural remedies my hyperpigmented part is being so hard and dry so is it side reaction? And what about lotus herbal sunscreen with spf 40! ? Is it good or nt ? I had oily skin in past but now my skin is medium type neither very dry nor oily…so is it suitable for my skin?

    • Hey Farheen,
      I don’t know what natural ingredients you are applying for your face? For example lemon juice being one of the natural de-pigmentation ingredient can irritate the skin if used too often because of the acids present in it. I would rather suggest you to stop natural remedies and go for melaglow rich cream. Use this cream only in the night. I prefer using a good pharmaceutical based sunscreen which are available at the medical stores like Sunscros aqua gel for your type of skin. Hope this suggestion helps you :-)
      Anu :-) :-)

  28. Farheen

    Thanks alot..but i still hav one question is that if i m not going anywhere at day time and just be in home so applying sunscreen is necessary ?

    • Hello Farheen,
      Yes it is very important to apply sunscreen even when you are indoors :-)

  29. Farheen

    Thanks for suggestions… I m applying melaglow at night daily bt from 2 or 3 days my hyperpigmented area below lower lip is very dry and certain or too little burning occurs when i m applying. So what vl i do? I m scared about it…🤕

    • Hey Farheen,
      Try applying the cream every other day that is alternate days in the night. Do not apply the cream very near to the nostrils and around the mouth.

    Valar
    Hai mam tis mela glow rich cream is hw many day its wil be different the skin.and dis cream is hand and leg also used

    • Hello Valar,
      Thanks for stopping by. Each individual’s problems will be different and same goes with getting the desired results. But for hyper-pigmentation it will take minimum of 4-6 weeks to see the changes.
      Cheers!!
      Anu :-)

  31. Farheen

    Hii…i m trying this every other day then y dryness not going? And blackness also?? 🤥

    • Hello Farheen,
      May be you should go for a cream which contains less percentage of the contents. You can try Clearz plus cream (see my review on the same). You should also stop home remedies for a while when using this cream. De-pigmentation creams takes minimum of 4-6 weeks to show the results.
      Cheers!!
      Anu :-)

  32. Farheen

    Yeah bt my dermatologist suggest me this cream…and i also want to ask u that is make up products gives harmful effect on hyperpigmented part? Bcz i mostly wear make up now a days for hiding that spot…and same about ice? Can iscrub ice on that part?

    • Hello Farheen,
      You can apply ice cube before applying make-up. But as I always say, you should apply sunscreen before applying any make-up. Ask your dermatologist to change the cream if it is causing any irritation.
      Cheers!
      Anu :-)

  33. Meenakshi handa

    Your answer is very satisfactory for me but my upperlip melesma is not cleared off and it does not give good effect on my skin i am not seeing any improvement after using melaglow rich plus after35 days .kindly suggest any day cream i can wear in morning .i am wearing melaglow rich at night but sabiglow in morning .may be sabiglow is causing problem or tanning.i become some darker.kindly help me

    • Hiii Meenakshi,
      I do not suggest any skin lightening creams to be applied in the morning. Never forget to apply sunscreen. Try to avoid sunlight between 12pm-3pm. De-pigmentation creams take longer periods to show results depending on the skin condition and problems of an individual. If the problem still persists even after 3 months of usage then you can go for laser or chemical peeling treatment under a certified medical practitioner.
      Cheers!
      Anu :-)

  34. Triveni

    Hi I’m 22yrs old female. Lybrate doctor suggested me to use clindac a foaming face wash,deriva cms gel and melaglow rich cream. I want to know what type of spf is suitable for me please suggest me.

    • Heya Triveni,

      What’s up? Looking at the creams prescribed by your dermatologist, you are been treated for acne. I wonder why your doctor has not suggested any sunscreen? Use all the creams very cautiously because it may irritate the skin. You may try Suncros Soft Gel Sunscreen or Melagard Sunscreen. Both the sunscreen as high spf of 50.
      Cheers!!

  35. joseph.michal

    Hi,mam
    Today i bought melaglow rich cream and started to use for my sun tan.but now im not using it on my face.for the first one week i will use on my arms to check it will suit me or not.myface,neck and arms are very dark and other parts white.i want to know that whether it will make my skin more darker than before in the future if i stop this cream.

    • What’s up Joseph?
      Yes you can definitely try on your arms to get rid of the tan. But please make sure you apply sunscreen as well on your arms in the morning when you go out in the sun. You should wear a full sleeves shirt when you step out in the sun. Apply Melaglow Rich cream in the night.
      Cheers!!
      Anu :-)
