I can't believe this doesn't get better reviews. I agree with the last reviewer, this will not completely eliminate dark spots, but it makes a HUGE difference. It lightens them up so that you don't need to wear concealer under your makeup to cover the dark spots. I am thrilled with it and feel so much better looking in the mirror. My dark spots were VERY dark and now are very light! I'm very pleased and will continue to purchase.
the product does what it says FADE, it will not completely vanish your dark spots! so if your looking for that, go find a different product. BUT it does fade a substantial amount, so you can see quite a difference.
I bought the regular cream and i havnt broken out yet, ive been using it for about a month now and i have seen a difference, its not a huge difference but the spots are now not so obvious as before. i put it on about once a day
(I recommend putting it twice a day, morning and night) and then sunscreen on top of that even though it has a little sunscreen in it already, just in case
the cream smells ok, its thick and white but it absorbs well wen rubbed into the skin
I've been using this for about a year now and i LOVE IT .. I have eczema all over my face and chest and it cleared it up completely! .. I've seen really bad stuff about this product here on makeupalley and I personally think its amazing! My sister recommended it to me and I gave it a try and I still thank her up to this day! .. I use it as a daily moisturizer twice a day and i never regret buying it ..
I bought this to help lighten my hyper-pigmentation & cystic acne scars. By the end of the 3rd day, I started to have an allergic reaction to the cream. From my face to my jawline I had dime-size welts appearing. They itched more than they hurt so I immediately washed my face & by morning the welts reduced but the itchiness remains. Hopefully it will be gone in a few days. Straight to the trash can....
this product is horrible,it did not tone me it only gave me a yellow under tone,and when is uncovered it it turns brown.it broke me out.this product is not good for sensitive skin.

I MEAN I GET MOSQUITO BITES ON MY LEG I READ THESE REVIEWS BEFORE BUT I DIDNT READ THE BAD ONES ! I MEAN MY LEGS STARTED TO GET PIMPLES AND MORE DARK SPOTS,FAULTTY PRODUCTS
I am a 53 year old black female, I am always been told that I look 35yrs old,I have been using palmer's skin success for 20 years, my skin is very smooth and even tone, I started using this cream after the birth of my last child, my skin had develope dark spots,I knew I had to find something that would remove those unattracted black spots from my face. I tried other face cream before I found skin sucess. I am a Children's Author am in the public eyes all the time, so my skin have to look nice. I am always getting compliments on my skin, and it feels good to use a product that actually works.
So i saw this and i had used another skin lightening treatment from like nadiola or something like that and what caught my attention was that it came with the complexion soap and the cream and i just bought it without reading the box. So when i got home i was reading the little paper that was inide and it tells you the other products they have and i guess they have one for dry skin and regular and oily. i didnt see the box i bought said regular, i have oily skin. i thought it would be fine and went ahead and used it. well i knw the soap has made me break out, i have acne-prone skin. i went back to wal-mart but the only one they carry is the regular. Maybe if i had the one for oily skin it would of worked better, The cream itself hadnt worked so great either. I had bought it to fade my acne scars and havent really seen any improvement.. bummer :(
I bought this because it said "moisturizing" somewhere on it, since I was currently out of moisturizer and it was the only thing i could buy with my pocket money. When I got home, since I was shopping with my father I had no time to read, I noticed it was more for dark spots and uneven tone. I used it anyways and I saw some flaky patches disappear, maybe from the AHA or the moisturizers, I don't know. It was kind of hard and thick to smear on but seemed to absorb pretty well. I can still feel some film on my face but it's tolerable no worse than makeup and you can't see it, makes my face matte. It's my 3rd time using it and my skin tone has improved and is much more even, it's not a miracle but it's certainly a great buy. As for breakouts, I haven't noticed anything but I had an unusual breakout prior to this purchase due to some bad makeup, I'll report if it does. My mother used it once and acted like she saw a big difference and she normally isn't impressed by much.
Update-I've been using this for about a month now, I wouldn't recommended it under makeup it makes the finish kind of weird and can make me oily. As for breakouts my skin reacts to just about everything, but I haven't noticed anything unusually bad, made one or two out of the ordinary zits but nothing intolerable. My mom hasn't had any problem, due to the others reviews though it still sounds like a gamble buy. Especially if you're skin is breakout prone or sensitive. However it's really helped my skin tone and I think marks fade a bit quicker, to me it's five dollars well spent.
I HATE THIS. I WILL SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS HOW MUCH I HATE THIS PRODUCT!!!!! IT BROKE ME OUT AFTER ONLY THE 2ND USE....seriously. I was hoping to gradually lighten my tone but after only the 2nd application i began getting these little white bumps on my face, particularly my forehead. it was so embarrassing and it made me feel like crap. I never break out...so I knew it was from this. Please do not try it. i dont recommend. i would rather have darker skin than have breakouts.....stay far away. PS i have noticed other reviewers saying it broke them out - perhaps this product isn't "non comedogenic"? I'm betting that it does clog your pores. Just look at how thick and unspreadable it is. Sick. whenever I used it (all two times) i had to mix it in with my nighttime moisturizer just to get it to spread. Also, dont even think of using it at daytime because there is no way in hell you could put your makeup over it. this product is a piece of shit and not even worth $5 i spent on it. Ugh.
