      Comments about Alpha Skincare Online Only Dual Action Skin Lightener:

      I've used this consistently for 2 years. Only put a pin dot on each brown "age spot", rub a bit and over a couple of months they fade to my skin color until I can barely see where they are. One tube has lasted about three years. No stinging, smell or redness. It was the #1 product in a magazine article and I agree.

          Inexpensive & Effective for Sun Spots

          By SD_NATUREGIRL

          from San Diego

          Comments about Alpha Skincare Online Only Dual Action Skin Lightener:

          I use this as an inexpensive way to lighten sun spots on my forearms. It's a thin lotion and only a small amount is needed. Just make sure to let it absorb and dry before applying sunscreen, which is a must with daytime use. Be patient and consistent with twice daily application & you'll see results.

            Comments about Alpha Skincare Online Only Dual Action Skin Lightener:

            I have a sun spot on my upper cheek that I have never been fond of. I bought this product and used it once in the morning and once at night for 2 days. A total of 4 times. I noticed my sun spot started to scab and then turn bright red/brown. A spot that had never been *super* noticeable has now gotten my friends and family worried that it is skin cancer. After a few days of this spot being bright red, it scabbed over again. About a week to a week and a half after initial application my sun spot looks back to normal and maybe a bit less dark. I don't know if I did something wrong but the journey to the end result was not desirable. Not sure if I will use this product again..

                I have a lot of pih scarring and this does a nice job of gradually fading them. I don't love the smell but it's not a deal breaker and fades quickly.

                        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 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.
