        I've been using this product for only a week. I have a couple of age spots on my cheeks that I can see even thru my makeup. I like a more natural look so I don't apply a lot of foundation. So far it looks like my spots have faded a little. I still see them thru my makeup but a little less. I'm hoping in a few weeks they'll all be gone so will see!

          This product works excellently for me at fading brown spots. I've had better results than with any other lightening product I have ever tried. Very satisfied.

            This stuff really works! I use it daily - each night and sometimes morning after my shower and before moisturizing. I had two tiny discolored spots, one on each side of my face (side of cheek area) and one on the side of my neck under the ear. My hair covers this one, but it was there and it bothered me! I loved the sun growing up and tanned (with sunscreen) through my early 40s. I wasn't shocked these spots showed up. This product after just 2 weeks of daily consistent use has made a dramatic difference! These spots are almost completely diminished...GONE. My husband noticed a huge difference too. This stuff really WORKS.

              Very well priced, targets spots and uneven skin. Takes several weeks, gets the job done as well as high price competition.

                This is a great price for a product that really reduce my dark spots/sun-age spots. I use every day, sometimes morning and night. Once in a great while, it irritates an area-usually on my chest, so I just skip that area a couple days and it's fine.

                Comments about Alpha Skincare Dual Action Skin Lightener:

                I have begun using this because my acne caused hyperpigmentation along my jaw line. The results I'm seeing are slow but steady. Glycolic acid has an optimal pH of 2-3, and when I tested the pH it was definitely on the acidic side, which is good because if the pH is too high the acid will neutralize and won't do its job. The smell of this isn't great, but it's not perfume and the smell disappates quickly so I don't really care. Good price for 10% glycolic acid.

                Comments about Alpha Skincare Dual Action Skin Lightener:

                I am so relieved I could cry. I've been struggling with melasma on my upper lip that makeup couldn't completely cover. I was using another brand that gave minimal results and then stopped working after a while. I saw a review for this product on Beautypedia and decided to give it a try. It seriously gave me results after two uses. I am so happy. Note that it does cause a slight tingling/burning when first applied, but I didn't notice any other signs of irritation after that.

                    I used this every day for a few months as instructed around my feet and ankles. Every day after I showered, I would apply to scared areas. I scar very easily from mosquito bites and they look exactly like acne scars. Deep purple/red and long lasting. My mosquito scars are still there since June 2016. I applied this product hoping to eliminate the dark hue and it literally did nothing. I have not used on my face for acne scars/freckles because it says to stop using after a few months if it does not work. Bummed out.

                      I RARELY write reviews but this products has changed my skin dramatically. I had stubborn acne scars that wouldnt go away no matter what product I used. I chose this product after looking at reviews and the ingredient list. I used it twice a day and noticed results by the end of the week. I have been using it for about 6 months and ALL of my acne scars are almost completely gone. When I do get a blemish, because I use this cream it doesnt leave a scar. I highly recommend this for anyone with dark spots/acne cars!
