Default Cleanser for hyperpigmentation?

I had a facial today, and the clinician noticed some sun/age spots. She uses Institut DERMed products, and recommended the Brightening Cleanser and Brightening Toner. I don't really know anything about facial products, and was wondering if there were something similar, but preferably cheaper and/or more readily available.

I don't have a very high-tech routine right now. I just use Oil of Olay Foaming Face wash in the morning, and the Oil of Olay Regenerist Cream Cleanser 5 nights a week. The other 2 nights, I use the Institut DERMed Renewing Cleanser that was recommended to me at my first (and only other) facial several years ago.

The Brightening Cleanser uses Kojic Acid for the hyperpigmentation, and L-Lactic Acid for exfoliation. Does anyone have a recommendation for a different cleanser?

Thanks!

I am not sure about cheaper alternatives but keep your eyes open for anything with Stone Crop. It is a brightener and works on hyper pigmentation.

This is the brand I use. It is more on the expensive side, but I find it completely worth it. The products are highly concentrated and last a long time. It takes me a year or longer to go through a jar of face masque, and I try to do one once a week. Even their moisturizers can be thinned out with water.

They have 2 lines to help brighten your complexion. One is the Bright Skin. I personally can not use it. I have hyper sensitive skin, and something in that line seems to get people with my skin type. Other than that, no issues. They also have the Stone Crop line. This is a link to the Bright Skin cleanser but it also has the Stone Crop Gel wash, at the bottom of the page, in the recommendations section. Each has masques, serums, moisturizers, toners, body washes, etc... that coincide.

One more thing and I will be done. I believe the Strawberry Rhubarb products also help with hyper pigmentation. I have the exfoliating wash. It is a very fine and gentle exfoliating powder that is in a large shaker type container. Damn good stuff! You can use it alone or add it to any cleanser. I also have the serum, which is great. It only takes a drop or two so they last a very long time. Even if you do not get a cleanser, a stone crop (or ...) serum may be helpful.

Cleansers dont stay on the skin so save the money and invest in a lightening cream and a quality sunscreen (have to be religious with the ss or the spots will return)
