I first used this as a child to help fade marks left by mosquito bites. Twenty years later, I don't even remember where they were. Most recently I used this to fade a terrible dark acne scar between the bridge of my nose and lacrimal duct? Within two weeks of spot treatment, the mark was completely gone! I applied a thin layer all over my face then placed a thicker coat over top of the mark every night.
And now it's gone! I stopped using it because it had expired therefore the effectiveness has comedown a bit. Hopefully the new bottle will work. If not I'm afraid my skin may have gotten used to it.
*** PS - Make sure to wear a strong sunscreen and reapply if necessary. Otherwise your skin might become sensitive and burn easier. ***
PROS: great price, works, light scent
CONS: not good for under makeup wear
Patience is KEY!! What many do not realize is that this is a FADE cream so it is meant for there to be a process to see maximum results. This is one of those "itís not for everybody" products but it does work! If you have the patience and use the product AS DIRECTED you will see results.
I began using this product after not being able to resist picking in my face during a really bad breakout. I waited until the breakout was over and I applied a small about to every problem area. I did not see results by week two but I continued to use the product (wanted to use it up). After week 4 there was a noticeable difference in the darkness of the spots. THEN I had another breakout due to stress. Instead of stopping my regimen, I included the current breakout spots into the spots I was already targeting. In the following week I noticed that my breakout spots were lighter than usual and after another month of use they are barely there!!
In all, my 4 months with this product have been rewarding!
I bought this cream from tops for about $5! i had a huge dark line near my smile line! I used the ambi cream and in almost 2 weeks it was gone. I will say be careful how much and how often you use it because now i have a little light spot where the darkness used to be. It is not very noticeable. this cream is amazing I LOVE IT! :)
This is not an overnight fix! It takes at least a month to see results. However, I am very happy with the results. I bought this from Walgreens for less than $10. I have only been using it at night on my age spots. It has been 6 weeks now and I am seeing an improvement. I have an age spot in the middle of my bottom lip that I hate! It says not to use it on your lips, but I have been putting a small amount on that spot at night and it is definitely fading (quicker than the spots on my face). I would definitely buy this again. However since I am only using such a small amount, the tube will probably last years!
I bought this product for about 7.99 at an Asian food place. Let me just say I've been getting acne since I was about 10 years old and I'm now 15 years old. I decided it was time to get rid of these dark spots on my cheeks, temples and forehead. I bought the Ambi Fade Cream for Oily Skin about 3-4 days ago and I'm drop dead pleased with the results. I feel a glow to my skin. I see and feel a significant change in my dark spots. I feel so much more confident. On top of this fade cream I'm using a fade soap also by Palmers.. Ambi also has it's own fade soap but I like Palmer better and *sigh I'm also using St. Ives Apricot exfoliate scrub. It's only been a few days and I'm so happy with the results. Now I can say this product doesn't work for everybody but give it a try. I recommend this product because I know how it feels to have tried everything on those bloody store shelves. I know what it feels like to be teased about these little imperfections but I've found a way to bring back my self esteem and Ambi and the other products I used have definitely helped me regain what I lost five years ago.
I bought this in Normal. I don't have oily skin so I never got break outs from this.
It succeeded in fading some scars however it caused mini CRATERS. Tiny dent around my scar area. This would be harder to get out than actual scars. Highly disappointed.
I have been using this product for quite a while now and I haven't seen any significant results.. I wonder if its because I bought the Oily Skin treatment (All they had) when I should have bought Normal .. I'm gonna try something different
My dermatologist recommended this product for fading acne scars and some discoloration around my mouth. So far, I've been diligently applying this stuff twice a day for a little over a month. No noticeable change. At all. In fact, a particularly stubborn acne scar on my forehead is still as dark and obtrusive as ever, even though I thought it would've faded naturally by now.
Also (and this may be a nitpick), I strongly dislike the packaging; it's very inconvenient for traveling because it gets squeezed easily and then, when I reopen it, the cap is filled with product.
Anyway, at the very least, I haven't experienced any adverse reactions to this product.
I bought this product because it was recommended on Oprah's website. I did not find it that powerful. I am not sure if it is because my sun spots are not "new" or that I live in Florida but either way, it did not fade them as I would like. I believe I am going to have to get a prescription from the dermatologist to try and fade them. If anyone has a good OTC recommendation, please let me know!
I bought this product for $8 hoping to clear up old acne marks on my face & back. I've been using it for a month & a half now but am highly disappointed. I got the cream in Oily since I have oily skin. Ambi claims that you can wear this under makeup but that's FALSE. Besides my usual small amount of shine I was super oily with the makeup which completely defies makeup's purpose. Even going natural with the cream my face was unusually oily, so i dont feel like purchasing the product for oily skin made much of a difference, it actually made it worse. It only seemed to help with fresh marks fading it slightly but did absolutely nothing for my old marks. Overall the packaging & price are reasonable but this product was garbage... im going to try Nadinola.
