I am 35 yrs old and since I was a teenager, I've suffered from acne. It sucked in high school- but after college, when it wasn't gone- I was so disappointed. So here I am…a thirty something- STILL trying to find the best way to clear up my skin.
After having twins five years ago, my condition got worse. Maybe hormonal- maybe what I was eating, who knows. But creams a dermatologist recommended and tons of drug store stuff later (i.e. Clearasil, oxy, etc) - they would help- but not for long.
My skin is the type to break out during certain times of the month with 4-10 pimples at a time. They go away after a few days, but what is left behind is the worst. Scars! Big, red acne scars that make the next breakout cycle more traumatic because now I know more scars are going to be left behind. My cheeks are the worst – the scars are plentiful. (I find Mac makeup – the studio fix powder the best to cover.) But still, wish I didn't have to cover my face so much!
Any rate- I'm taking time today out of my busy life to review this product. It's probably like the 75th product I've purchased for my skin in a drugstore. I had little expectations. I was a bit worried- because although it says it will get rid of my acne scars, I was afraid it may cause me to break out more. But it was cheap enough so the risk wasn't THAT great.
Well, it's been a month now since using it and I LOVE this product. My scars are noticeably lighter AND- here's the GREATEST news- I have NOT had a bad breakout since using this product- so guess what? NO NEW acne scars have appeared. My goal is to keep using this product until every single scar is gone – which I'm hoping will be in another month or two. By summer- I will be so happy to go outside with just sun screen – but not a lot of foundation caked on my face. Will keep you posted with that!
So far, I highly recommend this product both for acne breakouts and acne scars. My skin really looks so much better- and I am my own worst critic.
Good luck to you whatever you decide!

This product contains three tubes. One is straaightforward enough--a 2% hydroquinolone cream for lightening brown skin spots. That product is available in dozens of products--all much much cheaper to buy per ounce. The other two tubes contain undisclosed ingredients but appear to be just a simple cheap ineffective moisturizer. The total cost of this "system" is way too much--around [$]--when you can simply buy a Dr. Palmer product which does the same thing for about $3 at a pharmacy.. It's also 2% hydroquinilone.

    Comments about Dr. Varon's Skin Bleaching System, 1 ea:

    I have the ugliest brown spots you have ever seen all over my face. Starting fifteen years ago, I have tried everything I could to eliminate them – Laser, Nitrogen, Intensive Pulsed Light treatment, whitening facials, hydroquinone creams, don't mention all the high-end brightening skin cares… you name it. Actually, on the third day of the usage of Dr. Varon's Bleaching System, I have already noticed the slight improvement. I was stunned at the results on the eighth day. Yes, the system does irritate my skin but that was spelled out on the box and expected. No pain no gain.

    I'll be on Auto Delivery program.

      Comments about Dr. Varon's Skin Bleaching System, 1 ea:

      I feel compelled to write a review to let potential buyers know that your skin WILL GET WORSE BEFORE IT GETS BETTER when using this product. But, if you power through the peely, stingy, itchy, hormonal-teenager-like-acne for the first 1-2 weeks, it will be completely worth it! Every time I use this product I get to the point where I want to quit because my skin is getting so much worse. Then, almost overnight, the acne disappears, the redness fades, and I am left with a clearer complexion than I had before I hit puberty. And that was a long time ago. Many reviewers seem to stop at the point when it gets worse, but I wouldn't consider a review complete or accurate unless the reviewer completed the whole cycle. While there are definitely some logistical errors going on with this product (three tubes of equal amounts, even though you are meant to use different amounts of each tube; inconsistent consistencies of the product in the tubes), it really does what it claims to do, in my opinion. Oh, and I have about the most sensitive skin that exists.
