I was using the other (but similar) Black Opal product, the "Advanced Dual Phase Fade Cream w/ Sunscreen". I've used this for 2 months now. Followed the directions: Twice daily, Morning and...

Well, I didn't notice improvement overnight like some folks did....but after two weeks, I can certainly see a change. It also seems to make skin very smooth, which I like. I'll buy again :)

I bought the product because of the reviews in MUA Top Picks. I have to admit that it did fade away gradually my acne scars and some brown spots. I could see the improvement but it didn't...

I really like this product. It does a good (and fast) job at fading dark spots. I love the way it makes my skin feel (so nice and smooth).

This is no miracle product. I used it religiously for almost 3 weeks and so no obvious improvement. I have medium toned skin (e.g. closer to white than dark). The packaging is excellent, however....

I have been using this product for about a month now...and I have no complaints. After only a week, it began to work on lightening some acne scars I have. I would say that about 60% of the spots...

The only result I got from this was uncomfortable, peeling skin. The dark spots from birth control pills remained under the ugly, tortured patches on my face. And yes I followed the directions to...

This stuff was great. First fade product I've found to actually work, but I think I've found something better. It's called Nadinola Extra Strength Fade Cream. It has 3% hydroquin compared to Black...

I used this for 3 weeks day and night. I know, I know you are only supposed to use it at night! But its so light and absorbs so quickly that it wore well under my tinted moisturizer. I put a thin...

Miracle in a tube for lightening any kind of skin discolorations. It works pretty fast too, visibly fading marks in a week. The only caveat - the retinol can cause breakouts if the gel is overused,...
