Fade Out White Protecting Day Cream

On some people, freckles are beautiful. But on me, unfortunately, this is not the case. In summer, I end up with a growing number of freckles across my nose and on my cheeks. I'd much prefer to wear a lighter foundation in the summer, but because of my freckles I still reach for my thick, high coverage ones. I recently discovered Fade Out's creams through Youtube, and I made a trip to boots to pick up the day cream.

According to Fade Out, this product aims to improve the overall appearance of the skin, reducing darkened areas such as freckles, promoting an even skintone and also has SPF15 to protect your skin from the sun. As I'm only 19 I won't be able to comment on the anti-ageing effects of this product. This cream works by inhibiting melanin transfer to the upper layers of the skin, reducing pigment. 

This product applies invisible, it doesn't feel heavy on the skin and soaked in really quickly. The cream itself is quite thick, you only need a tiny amount. It will take me absolutely ages to get through a whole pot! I can't say that I particularly like the way that it's scented, it's an odd floral scent. One of my biggest worries with this product was that it would make me oily, and would in turn break me out. Fortunately, it didn't.  If anything, I think it helped control my oiliness. After applying this, my skin feels lovely and soft.

I didn't notice any results in the first week of use, but after around two weeks I was much happier with my skin. My freckles on my face were definitely fading (to the point where other people noticed that they were no longer as apparent), my skintone was brighter and more even. I didn't notice any effects on my darker freckles on my arms and legs, however.

Unfortunately, half way through this test I managed to get sunburn on my face, which brought back all my freckles to an even worse degree. This cream didn't prevent them from appearing, but I would definitely say that it helped reduce them faster. Normally it takes forever for my freckles to go down after sunburn, but it's been a couple of weeks now and they're now back to normal (if not a bit lighter).

Overall I've been really pleased with this cream. If it wasn't for my sunburn, I think I would've seen further improvement on my freckles. After the two week mark I was actually happy to look in the mirror without any foundation - my skin has definitely improved since I've been using this. I would also consider buying the Night Cream, but at the moment I've been happy with the results of this without needing anything extra.

There's a good chance that I'll do an update post once I've been using this cream for a few months if I notice any long term effects.

Fade Out's White Protecting Day Cream costs £9.18 and can be purchased from Boots.

Disclosure: I bought this product myself. 


  1. I have freakles from head to toe, they are even more appernt due to my medication. I may give this a go. Great post!. Ax

    1. I didn't notice much of a difference on my freckles on my body (they are very dark so I'm assuming they may take longer) but the ones on my face are so much better. I didn't think that it would make a difference but it definitely did! x

  2. did the fade out cream really work to reducing melanin? i have pigmentation problem and i was thinking to try this product. if you don't mind , please share me how it work to your skin.

    1. I would say that it did reduce my freckles although it hasn't gotten rid of them entirely. It didn't have as much of an effect on my darker freckles on my arms and legs though. I honestly think it's a little subjective, so it would depend on how dark the areas that you are concentrating on are. It definitely brightened my skin though and my skintone is much more even now! Hope that helps. x
