I have been using this on my dark spots for about a week and, whilst they don't do anything dramatic, I can see my skin healing nicely. Because I am quite fair skinned, the zinc oxide in the cream also acts like a concealer or colour corrector for my really red areas. Again, nothing too dramatic, but it has improved the overall appearance of my skin. Definitely recommend but don't mistake this for a super fast acting spot treatment. It's more to help heal your spots than to aggressively dry them out.
