Honest reviews


It helps but it’s up to you

I do not use this product consistently HOWEVER, I do notice that when I do use it, it works quickly to fade my dark brown acne spots. It is a great acne topical gel as well and I feel like it improves my overall skin condition. It is an absolute must to use sunscreen with it or else you will actually darken your spots/scars.I plan on coming back to this review in one month and reviewing it again after using it consistently.The only reason I gave this product only four stars is because it is less than a miracle, but in actuality, it does what it says it does…just slowly and with consistence.

Works sloooowly

This works extremely fast on fresh scars. But if you are looking to make a chicken pox mark from 1985 to disappear–not gonna happen! If you use it on acne scars that have been on your face for awhile (maybe for a few months), it will make it go away but it will take months. Better to use right away on fresh scars; it will make it disappear in a few weeks.

Works great, good price.

This product from Payless Beauty is $20 cheaper than retail. Not sure if I would have purchased this if I had to spend $60 because I already bought one a few years ago for full price and wasn’t able to use it all before the expiration date. I absolutely love this stuff…I feel like it works right away and also seems to calm down and stop oncoming acne from getting worse. It certainly helps lighten the constellations of acne scars on my chin.

It works okay

It helps with post acne marks somewhat because I can see a little bit of a difference, but it doesn’t work as fast as I would like it to.

I’ve used this religiously for about 3 months, and …

I’ve used this religiously for about 3 months, and I’m not really sure if there’s a significant difference in my scars. Scars naturally fade a little bit over time, if you use sunscreen daily, so it’s hard to tell if this product actually made a difference. I haven’t yet finished the bottle, so it does last a long time.

break out more.

I was using this for a while actually and I only see VERY LITTLE difference. So it seems like its working on the others but what is the point if I am breaking out elsewear!

Didn’t notice a change

I have medium Asian skin, i never noticed any change on my dark spots. I don’t go in the sun. I think the philosophy works better.

This did not work for me

Not only did this product not work for me after a month it turned red in the bottle rather than stay clear! What in the world. I have better luck with Mary Kay even complexion.
