    Comments about Alpha Skincare Dual Action Skin Lightener:

    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!

      Comments about Alpha Skincare Dual Action Skin Lightener:

      I have only been using this for a few days, in the "mustache" area, which is darker on my face than most women. I have very super-sensitive skin. The directions say to apply twice a day, but because of my sensitive skin, I have only been using it once a day to start. I do have to say that it does seem that the area is slowly lightening. Maybe it is wishful thinking on my part, but I don't think so.

        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.

              Comments about Alpha Skincare Dual Action Skin Lightener:

              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.

                  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.
