I have acne, and I scar pretty easily (even though I don't typically pick at my skin!) After only a few days of usage, Ambi lightened my scars significantly. They were a lot less red and noticeable. It also didn't cause me to break out, which is a huge plus in my book. Love it! The only problem I have with it is the smell, which is strong at first (to me, anyway), but fades after you rub in the cream. I've read other reviews saying that it seems to work better with peels, so I'll probably try that and see if I can't banish these pesky marks completely! Will definitely repurchase, if I need to. It's a pretty good-sized tube.
I've had horrible acne scars for years and even though my skin has cleared up, I've always been scared to go out without make up on. After using this, I noticed results within a few days. It has faded the scars on my face significantly and my skin looks so much better. I only have two things to complain about this product: 1- that it doesn't make me break out more, but it makes the few pimples I do get, big and those deep under the skin ones that hurt to touch. 2-it had Hydroquinone in it which is a CARCINOGEN. but then again it also has Octinoxate in it, which is a sunscreen. So while this product is great, it's good for only a short term use. Don't use it for a long period of time unless you want skin cancer. Wear sunscreen when you use this otherwise the scars come back. My skin looks so much better and I'm so glad I finally found something that works.
I AM IN LOVE! this product has given me results less than a week! my acne scars are not necessarily red but a brown pigment... with my light skin tone it is incredibly obvious...but i use this in the morning and night everyday.. i've used this for 5 days and my scars are 90% GONE. DID NOT BREAK ME OUT. Purchased at walgreens for $5.99 and have been amazed with the results. Definately reccomend.
I used it on my acne scars together with Olay microdermabrasion kit. I apply it twice (morning and night) and put a thick layer on the scars. Been using for almost a month now and I can say it has helped fade my scars.
It doesnt completely 'erased' it but I have seen great improvement. Accdng to the commercial its for women with colors but I am kinda fair and it worked on me.
I like this product for the price. It only has 2% hydroquinone, but that's as high as you can get OTC. A prescription one would be better at 4%, but I don't have insurance. It does work, but you have to give it a few months. I've found that more lightening is achieved when it's used while also doing peels. Also, I only use it on the specific spots (twice a day, every day). It's a thick cream, so it would break me out if I spread it all over
I have purchase other similar products, but always come back to Ambi. I use this product to fade acne marks, even skin on my elbows and knees. In the summer you must use a sunscreen or the cream could have the reverse effect and actually cause dark spots.
I am absolutely in LOVE w/this product! Its been two weeks after a horrible breakout, which left me many acne scares & they are 80% gone!!!
I added a couple drops of Tree Tea Oil in my Aveeno foaming cleanser, used Witch Hazel as my toner & this fade cream twice a day. My face is 80% near perfect again! After trying VERY VERY expensive products w/negative results, the natural way, is the only right way! continued >>
I swear by this product. I have been using it consistently for 20+ years. Excellent product for WOC.
I love this product...I come back to it time and time again. Every time that I have an acne breakout, or for old acne scars that are stubborn and will not leave, I apply a thin layer of this product at night, then in the morning beneath my moisturizer, and in a few weeks there is a drastic difference in the appearance of the mark. In a months time it is completely gone! I love it, the price is great, it makes my skin super smooth, it has never caused me to breakout...its wonderful. It would be great for all skin tones. If will be a go to product to years and years to come. I always stop using it when I think my skin is "perfect" then some freak MAJOR breakout will occur (usually stress related) and it has to save my life again, and it turns me back to normal every time. :)
This product has worked for me better than Tri Luma and it is 1 billionth of the cost. I have sun related brown spots on my face. Just using sun screen, retin a and peels did not work so I did decide to go with a hydroquinone product and spent $100+ on Tri Luma last year but it did not work for me and it stung. I kept reading about this cream and for appx $5 at Walgreens I thought it could not hurt. The brown on my cheek bones is much lighter and it is helping to lighten the various spot on my cheeks. I have only been using it about 1 month but I do see results. Anyone looking to use a hydroquinone product should do their own research and make their own decisions about how safe the product is.
