Find out more about NeoStrata HQplus Lightening Gel by reading our full review below. See if this product is effective and something worth trying.


  • Hydroquinone 4%
  • Hydroxy acids (5% glycolic acid and 5% gluconolactone)

On the manufacturer’s website, there are only two ingredients listed. We are unsure if these are the only ingredients in NeoStrata HQplus Lightening Gel or if these are the main ingredients. It is best to choose a product that provides all the crucial information concerning the ingredients. Nonetheless, the product does not seem to contain any patented ingredients that are backed by clinical studies and research. In addition to this, other brands seem to also contain peppermint oil, mallow, alpenrose, and gypsyweed. Lack of these essential ingredients may result in a product that is not as effective as other brands.


The manufacturer recommends that the user apply the product sparingly. It is best to apply it directly to the affected area 1 to 2 times a day. Customers may also follow the directions of a physician.


NeoStrata HQplus Lightening Gel can be purchased from a few online retail stores provided on the manufacturer’s website. A 15 g tube of the product will cost you $40.00. This is a reasonable price for the product, however, there are no discounts and there are also no cost effective bundle deals available.


We studied the official website and were unable to find any evidence of a money-back guarantee. This could be due to the fact that the manufacturer does not believe in the effectiveness of their product. Nonetheless, you will not be able to test the product and return it for a full refund if it fails to work.

NeoStrata HQplus Lightening Gel Review – The Bottom Line

This review of NeoStrata HQplus Lightening Gel has provided us with good and bad aspects of the product. We really like that there are clear usage instructions for the product.

Unfortunately, there are many more negative aspects. The first thing that we do not appreciate is the fact that the customer is not offered a guarantee. This means that you will run financial risk with your purchase of this product. Furthermore, the manufacturer also fails to provide a discount or bulk packages to order from. With these two drawbacks, it does not seem like the manufacturer has the customer’s best interest in mind. Lastly, we do not like the fact that the product does not contain at least 5 clinically proven ingredients that are also patented. Also, the product is missing essential ingredients and lacks crucial information. These reasons of lack of guarantee, bulk purchasing, and essential ingredients lead us to believe that NeoStrata HQplus Lightening Gel is not an effective choice. We recommend that you search for an alternative product.
