Alpha-Arbutin is quite simply a natural and effective alternative to other skin lightening chemicals

Honest reviews


My favorite arbutin serum

I know this is supposed to be for men, but that doesn’t mean that we, women, cannot use it. 🙂 This is so far my favorite arbutin serum. It gets absorbed fast & does not leave sticky feelings afterward. It definitely lightens my skin as well – but you’ll have to use this faithfully everyday in order to see the difference. I use this every day morning/evening. The dark spots don’t completely disappear, but they get lightened. When this was not available on Amazon for a while, I bought some other arbutin products, and I hated it. I was so happy when this became available again. I highly recommend this.

Still On The Fence

I won’t say this isn’t working, but I still can’t say 100% that it’s doing what I expected it to do based on prior reviews. I’ve been using for about a month, and my hyperpigmentation has not faded to the degree in which I expected at this point. Though I like the consistency of the product(like an aloe-vera gel consistency); and it does sink in your skin pretty effortlessly and dries w/out being greasy, I will continue to use until it’s gone, but I don’t believe I will purchase again.

Great plus a gift!

So, I know this product was designed for men but I have to say it works wonders for women too. I had cystic acne, blackheads, uneven tone and hyperpigmentation. I rarely get pimples anymore and never any cystic ones. I look so much younger and even my fine lines are less noticeable. There’s no fragrance so I’m not uncomfortable using it (no one can tell it’s made for men). I will continue buying this forever! I love it. I put it on after washing my face before bed and it goes on like aloe vera and dries without becoming oily or too tight– it’s just right. Also, they sent a free gift of scrub pads and I liked those too.I’ve been spending a fortune trying to find something like this in the women’s beauty aisle for years and never came close. My skin was heartbreakingly horrible and painful but now I feel comfortable going outside makeup free.Buy it, you won’t regret it!

Hmmm… not as expected

It lessened acne scarring but rose hip oil and cocoa butter do a better job. It is no where near as effective as hydroquinone however it is less irritating. Otherwise, its easy to apply and absorbs instantly.

Like it

Great product. Definitely saw results when paired with niacinamide based lotions. My skin looked RADIANT. I had some sun damage from a crazy summer, but that’s gone now, or at least masked. The gel form is so convenient to use and store. Love the packaging. It’s a little pricey on a student budget, but it’s worth it.

Need to use it for an extended period

I think you have to continue using this product for awhile before you see any significant changes.I used one full bottle of this stuff. It lasted just over a month and I saw very little change as far as skin lightening goes. My complexion was slightly clearer.Not sure how strong the Alpha Arbutim is as they have a LOT of other stuff besides Alpha Arbutrim such as ulva ursa leaf extract,kojic acid, glycerin, seaweed, sea buckthorn, black tea and more.

Does not work

Product did not work for me at all. I tried for over 20 days without success. After thus I decided to trash it.

Clears skin up but . . .

… be careful with how many times you use it a day. At first I used this twice a day and it started to dry out my skin which in turn made my skin darker. When I switched it to once a day my skin didnt dry out that much, it went back to its normal color and slowly cleared up.Pros: Clears up acne spots and helps balance oil on skin. Lasts for about 2 to 3 months depending on how much you use it. Its fragrance free.Cons: Too much use will dry out skin. I cant use my retinol cream and this at the same time.I will buy this again.

It’s pretty good

It even my skin tone well. I use it a lot and the drops are what I was looking for.

This works with CONSISTENCY

I had a fresh mark on my back, I started using this item each day at night and it does work. You have to be consistent. What I like about this is that I use a q-tip and apply it to dry skin. I am on my second bottle and I do believe that this works but you have to continue to use it, nothing works overnight so you have to tackle the mark immedialty.
