    I absolutely love this product I use it on all my scars anywhere on my body not just my face! They have all faded to barely noticeable or non exsistant!

    I like this product a lot. I had a few dark spots on my face due to acne but I started using this as a spot treatment and in about 3 weeks I noticed that the spots had lightened quite a bit. I found it helpful to squeeze the product into a small jar because the ingredients often separated in the tube. All in all, this was a good buy!

    This product definitely made my skin tone a lot more evened out. I noticed results about 2 weeks after using this product. I thought it might help with fading my acne scars but it didn’t really do so. But overall, I thought it was a pretty good product!(:

    I have been using this product for the past three years. I wasn’t using it properly at first but recently, I have been using it almost everyday to lighten my acne scars. It has worked great for me! My skin is even and smooth since I’ve been using it consistently. Also drinking a lot of water has helped me as well. I highly recommend this!

    This was recommended to me years ago, and I recently started using it again to get rid of some dark spots on the back of my hands. I use it twice a day, and it really has helped. It absorbs into my skin quickly. I only need to use a little, so it lasts a long time. It took several weeks for me to really notice a difference, and within a few months, the dark spots are just about gone. I would definitely recommend this product.

    Amazing product! I searched for years to find a product to find my acne scars and my mom suggested I try this one. I’m so glad that I did because it has truly boosted my confidence. I’ve even used it on scars and they fade away with continuous use.

    This is a really goo product but it does take a while to work. I’ve found that if you use it on a spot when it has just occurred it will work best. I’ve been using it for almost a year now and I’ve seen some changes in my skin.

    I love this product with all my life. Like I literally suffer when I run out and can’t find any in stores!

I can’t even put in to words to describe how much I love it.

    Y’alllllllllllllllll this stuff is such a holy grain! Back in middle school I broke on my chest with some spots, it was a lot of spots, I was embarrassed at first. I thought it was because I wasn’t drinking enough water, it slowly begin to fade, but I still had some marks so like a few months ago, I ended up ordering this off of eBay & I begin to use it twice a day, it went away in less than two weeks, like I have no spots on my shoulders anymore! I wish I took a before & after photo to show you guys the results! But this cream is awesomeeee & it works plus it’s under $10!

    I recently started using this product, along with the ambi black bar soap. This formula is very good for oily skin, it is not thick and heavy like other moisturizers. It really absorbs into the skin. I would recommend this product to anyone with combination, oily, or people who want to control sweat.

    I use this product religiously!! And it is a miracle worker. The smell isn’t bad but it’s strong . I can’t remember the price cause I have a older version of it . But it definetly gets rid of dark spots and acne scars. Only use it on the areas needed cause it lightens and evens the skin that has the product on it . Definitely recommend .

    I have been looking for a cream to help fade my dark acne scars. Something that works and was affordable. That’s when I came across this baby rite here. I’ve been consistent with it every day adding it to my skin regime. My scars are significantly lighter. I noticed them fade after about a month of daily use.

    This cream works well. To even out scars, or acne marks. I use it on my scars, when I get cuts, or bite. To lighten and even the color of the scars.

    For anyone that has uneven skin tone or scars you want to get rid of this product is it. My Mom used to use it and I had no idea how great it was. I had an old burn on my leg from a motorcycle and I applied this daily for a good month. You can barely see it. I also had dark circles under my eyes. I said had. My daughter picks at her pimples leaving scars all gone. This product is legit!!!

  21. cristinat6ac3

    I love the spf in this cream because I don’t like the smell of sunscreen lotions. This wears well under my makeup, which is a big plus. It works really well to diminish the appearance of sunspots on the face. It even reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation from acne. I am only giving it three stars because I am pretty certain this has been causing me to break out recently; so although I like it, I cannot use it anymore.

    Ambi fade cream is extremely useful and helpful. I began to use the product for the first time about 3 weeks ago. I use the product about 1-2 times a day .To me the product has been effective with clearing some of my dark spots but there are still few.

    This is by far my holy grail!!!!! And the plus is that it has sunscreen in it. The plus is that you can get it for normal skin or oily skin. And this works like magic I have had a lot of marks that no matter what I tried they wouldn’t go away, but this has saved my skin and I still use it as a moisturizer even now.

    I truly enjoy using ambi because i get dark marks out of the blue and it helps get rid of them. In order for it to work efficiently, you would have to use it everyday. I usually put mine on at night time just to make sure my skin won’t get sunburn because it is thin

    This is my second purchase of this, and I will continue to purchase only this when I need. It did better than I ever expected. it completely got rid my dark spots. I got a new spot so i purchased it again. Make sure to wear sunscreen!!! its a must in order for your spot to fade!

    I really adore this product i have a lot of scarring from acne and it helps it start to fade in about 2-3 days. I even had this scar on my nose from falling and it helped it go away. I really love this, The only down side is that it breaks me out if I use it too often so I use it about a few times a week! It also works really well on my stretch marks. I totally recommend it!!

    The only fade cream I’ve tried thus far and I love it. It’s not to harsh like other bleaching creams… you can apply it all over and not burn to death. Because I have an oily T-Zone area.. I use the one for oily skin. I started to see results with a week!

    This fade cream is amazinggg! I was going through a tough time in my life which caused me to stress and break out. I was left with lots of dark spots on my face. My sister suggested that I try this for my dark spots. I used it and within two I started to notice my dark spots fading away. This is a product that I never go without. I purchase another one right after I’m out of the cream.

    It leaves my face so smooth and soft! I use it every night and it does fade some areas if you have dark spots or spots from acne! The smell is good and it has lasted me months you just need a little and it goes so smoothly all over your face or area you want to fade! It’s so worth it everyone

    This cream is amazing. I have oily skin, but the normal skin was the only one available to me. It clears discoloration, dark spots, acne scars, and blemishes. I used this twice a day (once in the am and once in the pm on clean skin) and my dark spots completely went away. If you suffer from acne scars I highly recommend this product.

    I was researching the best products for dark spots and acne scars and this product came up as a suggestion. I have tried many other things but nothing seemed to work. I thought I would give this a try based on the great reviews and I am so happy I did. I have been using this for about 5 months now and have already seen results on dark spots and acne marks. I am still on my first tube so it definitely last a long time and I have been using twice a day. It is a great product at an affordable price. I will continue to use as I am thrilled with the results. It is definitely worth giving a try.

    I have bad luck and every time I got some acne breakouts they left me behind a present, post inflamacií_n hyper pigmentation aka dark spot, you can imagine how terrible is that, and what was doing to my confidence, after trying everything and feeling miserable without results on expensive products, finally I went with a dermatologist who recommended this to me, and thanks God! I got my hg in the combat against dark spot.

    I have acne scars as I’m a picker. I decided to try this as it’s cheap and easily available. Even if it doesn’t fade my spots, I like it. Tiny dollops go a loooong way, there is no scent, and even though I have oily skin and got the one for normal skin, I believe I can’t use it under my makeup as it dries to a soft, hydrated touch. I know 4 percent hydroquinone does wonders but is only available in Canada without a script (and for half the price of what it costs in the u.s.), but this 2 percent solution also has Alpha hydroxy acid and vitamin e so I believe it’s going to work.

    This is the best brand for woman of color. It helps get rid of discoloration or any dark scars you have on your face. It’s takes time and consistency for you to see results. I would say only put the cream on the dark scars not your whole face because it has bleaching properties. I would recommend this product to anybody struggling to get even skin tone.

    Over the past few months I’ve noticed really dark spots on my face from popping pimples and I’ve tried the most expensive brands and nothing seemed to work. I’ve always heard amazing things about Ambi and that it’s catered to women of color so I thought äóìwhy not?äó. I bought the tube for about $5 at Walmart and followed the directions that night and I immediately noticed a difference the next morning! I apply it one time in the morning and one time at night after cleaning my face with my face cleanser. I admit it does have a noticeable smell to it when you first apply it but it goes away. It’s a thickish cream so a little goes a long way. If you have dark spots and tired of paying outrageous prices on these äóìbig brandsäó I definitely recommend this AMBI product!

    I wasn’t sure what was going on with my face..I didn’t want to take pictures.. felt like people were staring at me but some really were staring..I went in Walmart last week and said to the young lady “how can I get this off my face?!?” She looked at it and said “come with me” we went one aisle over,she showed me the cream and soap.. I purchased both items..came home washed my face and applied the cream..for a few days it burned and became irritated..I had to purchase hydrocodizone cream and used it for a day or two but the results are absolutely remarkable..I wish I would have found it sooner.. now I just have to work on removing the bumps from the irritation..I’m so pleased with this product..F.y.i: the irritation came from me applying the cream directly after washing my face..(my pores were open).. [product:ambi-skin-discoloration-fade-cream] [product:ambi-complexion-cleansing-bar-soap-35-oz] ..If you have blemishes you are self conscious about I truly recommend Ambi Products!!!!!!! Thank you so much
