I have definitely noticed lightening in my scars. It's not dramatic but it is noticeable! My acne scars were very dark and pigmented, but after being faithful to this cream, it's showing better result.
This does not leave my face shiny or an oil slick, my skin just absorbs it all right in. If you plan on wearing this under your makeup, you should wear moisturizer with SPF or some sort of sunblock protection, since alpha hydrox is known to make skin more sensitive to the sun.
Another thing I have noticed is that the fine lines on my forehead have reduced and smoothed out. For $6 this will definitely last a long time and it works for me!
How do I use this?
Well I want the full effect on this so after cleansing my face, I make sure to exfoliate with my St.Ive's apricot scrub, tone, then massage this cream onto my face with both hands. I also apply this onto my neck and I have definitely noticed the lines on my neck smooth out.
What are the cons to this?
You might feel tingling or stinging but it says it on the label that it's going to happen. (i personally don't mind it)
The smell - it smells a bit like vinegar
Another cool thing about this?
I've read reviews where women say they put this on their feet and areas where they feel needs exfoliation or smoothness. I have not tried it anywhere else but on my face and neck, and i've seen some improvement on my neck.
