Actifade is a product that has been highlighted in Better Homes and Gardens, Woman’s Day, the Ladies Home Journal, and on CBS, Fox, ABC, and NBC television.  This product is not necessarily intended for the use with alleviating acne conditions, but it is used to reduce the scarring and/or discolorations that are caused from severe acne and to diminish the appearance of unsightly age spots.  It is also successful at diminishing liver spots and dark freckles.

This product is not ideal for anyone under the age of 12.

What I Like About This Product/Company:

  • Actifade is very easy to use and you can use it on your face and body.
  • The main ingredient in ActiFade is Glycolic acid, which is commonly used to peel the top most layer of skin and encourage new skin growth.
  • The company that makes Actifade is very easy to contact.  They have a customer service hotline that is toll free and in operation Monday through Friday.  They can also be contacted through regular mail or email methods.
  • The company offers a frequently answers questions page in order to address common questions customers have about the product.

What I Don’t Like About This Product/Company:

  • Actifade did make my acne scar lighter than they were. However, I don’t just want to fade my acne scars. I want to get rid of them permanently. Actifade isn’t good enough for me.
  • Actifade contains fragrances that can irritate some user’s skin.
  • After using Actifade the user should not get too much sun exposure; it is recommended that the product is used in conjunction with a sun block product.


Actifade is definitely a good and affordable acne-reparation solution.  If you are looking to remedy the after effects of acne eruptions, this product is wonderful.  You can use it to get a softer and more even-toned complexion.  You can also do away with unwanted age lines, spots, and skin color dullness.  However, Actifade can’t return your skin to its former condition.
