I started using this lotion to try and clear up my tinea versicolor. I have used it faithfully for two weeks and haven't seen any improvement. It has a very chemical floral smell that I find quite offensive. Plus the directions are to apply this and leave it on for 15 min. then rinse it off. Since my tinea is on my shoulders and back, I find this step more than a little time consuming. After doing some research on Selenium Sulfide I will not be using this product any further based on the high toxicity rating it got. This ingredient is banned in Japan and Europe.

I was so happy when I found this product! I have been using it for almost 2 weeks. I honestly can't tell if it's working as I won't be able to tell until I get in the sun or tanning bed and tan my face. If the spots tan with the rest of my skin then I will be ecstatic! ! It smells great too!!

I have been using this product for about a week now and my husband says it looks like it's working though the spots have not yet completely gone away. I thought the lotion would have some sort of bad odor to it but it actually has a pleasant smell. This has not caused any irritation or stinging to my skin when applied and it dries fast which is good. If you happen to get any of the lotion on your clothing, don't worry it does not stain.
