Well, i started using this product because of the acne scars i have (dark spots, blemishes). I have had acne since i turned 15 and i am now 21. The problem is, that once i finally get my acne to calm down i still have the acne scars on my face. Every pimple i get, leaves a dark spot, which is really embarrasing. I have to go out with loads of foundation. Anyways, I have been using this cream about half a year. I have been constant with the daily use, and have noticed improvement on my face. The spots have lightened about 50%. I know that the cream is oily, and does make me get a pimple or two. But it is totally worth it because the cream does work. When using this cream you have to give it time. Using it two weeks may not be enough. Atleast wait enough time for the fade cream to give you results. I am impatient too, but i have given the cream time and it really works :)
the worst product in the whole entire world
stuffed up my skin like no tomorrow.
broke me out, left my scars looking worse.
don't purchase this AT ALL.
its a waste of money.
This helped lighten a scar I had.
Not bad. I dislike the jar packaging though.
I'll try to make this as short as possible, lol. After SUFFERING with acne for many years, I was left with many red scars all over my face. I was using Mederma scar cream for awhile, & it did seem to help, but it was a very lengthy, expensive, & not extremely productive process. So I seen this cream at the drug store, & decided to try it. I didn't have much hope for it because it was really cheap & I had never heard of it.
Well, I've been using it for about 2-3 weeks, & I've definitely seen improvement. It's amazing because these scars have really scarred me on the inside. I wouldn't leave the house without tons of make up to cover them up! Now, after just 2 weeks, I'm no longer in need of concealer, & I use MUCH less foundation.
Things I love about it: Very INexpensive, quick & easy to apply, you can wear it under make up :), & most importantly, it works & FAST!
Things I don't like: It does make skin oily, but if you're applying it before you go somewhere, just apply a very thin layer & you will be fine.
I haven't noticed any strange smell. Even though my skin is acne prone, this cream hasn't caused me to break out.
With any product, results with vary between consumers. Obviously it works tremendously for some, & not so much for others. But most of the reviews are positive, so it won't hurt to try it!
using for only three days and seeing results on existing marks i have so hoping in about 2-3 weeks some greater results.......
I've only been using this for about two weeks and...so far, so good. I have quite a few acne scars on my chin and cheeks that have started to fade but not quite fast enough for me--so I've been on the hunt for a while now for a decent fade product. So far, I'm really liking this. The texture made me a little nervous at first: my skin is prone to breaking out at the mere sight of thick, greasy products. But after two weeks, not a single new blemish has popped up. I credit this partially to the witch hazel toner I've started using and partially to the AHA in this product. I also don't wear this at night; just during the day (I don't like keeping stuff this greasy on my skin overnight).
As for its ability to fade scars/marks: I give it a 3.5 out of 5. I am noticing that my spots are fading but it's too soon to tell if it's the product or just natural lightening of the skin. My scars usually fade a bit over a 2-3 week healing process and then stay a very noticable reddish color. However, all of my new spots are fading more quickly than usual so I give this product a huge thumbs up. I'll update in the next couple of weeks...
At first when i started using this product, i couldn't stand the smell ><. To be honest i don't really know if the product gave me pimples or it was just my time of the month but it pimples that came were soooo horrible to even look at T.T and when i do get my period, i don't brake out in our area, my pimples just pop out in different places. .. so i don't really know but i will try the product again today and il update.. later . continued >>
This gets the job done- no frills no thrills. It breaks me out but its worth it if it means getting rid of my acne scars. This is far too thick of me to wear during the day. It smells pretty weird and takes a while to rub in. I find it works best if I mix it with another moisturizer with AHA and pat it in instead of rubbing in circles. The packaging is so unhygenic- keeping the little plastic lid makes it a little better.
Update: The breakouts are just too much for me. Gonna stick to using this on my body where it works wonderfully and use a retinol on my face
Hey everyone! :D
ok so when I was 14 I got mild acne all over my forehead it was gross and annoying and I couldn't help but pick and squeeze them. I am now 15 and have pretty clear skin (exept for occasional breakouts during my period) but I have been left with sooo many scars on my forehead. So I finally got this product, and call me crazy but I could see improvments within a few hours! I just got this today and I really think within two weeks all of my scars will be faded and almost clear! I'll write back after 3 weeks and tell you my progress.
I stole this product from my cousin in the cabinet i started using it around my mouth,upper lip etc,i have a little pigmnt there and its been 2 days and i can berly notice my dark spots..will see later down the line whats happening with it..
