    Comments about Alpha Skincare Dual Action Skin Lightener:

    I love this product when it was called alpha hydrox and now that it's named Alpha skin care. I was very sad when I thought it was discontinued and all they did was change the name. Wish they would sell it in stores for convenience.

          This product has the same ingredients as the overpriced creams but so inexpensive. It works so well! My 40 year old face has never been so smooth! Got rid of all the texture and dark spots are fading away! I use it ever night before going to bed and use sunscreen in the morning! I have recommended it to everyone that has sun damage, acne scars or just texture. Must have product!!

            Used this product for a little over a week now. Really like the results. Not earth-shattering so far, but I can tell a difference and that's more than I can say for most products that promise to even out skin tone.

              Comments about Alpha Skincare Dual Action Skin Lightener:

              I had two dark spots that bothered me: one on my face and another on my chest. I tried another product but it barely worked. I read about this brand and bought Spot Light, and the packaging looks different but the ingredients look the same.

              I've been using it morning and evening and those spots are almost gone! You do have to be patient if you have larger spots, so as soon as they crop up, that's the time to treat them. Be sure to look at your hands as they show these age spots, too.

              Faded scars significantly

              By Amanda W.

              from Indiana

              Comments about Alpha Skincare Dual Action Skin Lightener:

              This product has helped fade my acne scars. I use it at night and by the time I wake up I can already see a difference. I love that it also has glycolic acid in it. My face is more even in color and it has helped texture issues. Even the redness that has always been around my nose is almost gone. Great price and a wonderful product. Actually, I like everything I have tried by this brand. They did raise prices when they changed their name but still cheaper than many other products with similar ingredients. I almost didn't try this because I read many bad reviews. I'm glad I decided to give it a try. I am now comfortable going without foundation/concealer, which I haven't done in about a year. I also recommend It's Skin Power 10 Formula WH Effector. I started using the It's Skin product during the day and the Dual Action Skin Lightner at night. Both are priced great and give results quickly.
