Great for Hyperpigmentation Jan 02, 2009
I want to preface this by saying I am a mocha skinned Black woman (Nigerian and African American) with an oily t-zone and a genetic pre-disposition to hyperpigmentation. Also, I am writing this during the Chicago winter wherein my skintone becomes obviously uneven and pallid due to the lack of sunlight.
Search: I really wanted to find something that addressed hyperpigmentation, particularly for highly melanted skin. Since many posts were not explicit about what Vicco Turmeric Skin Cream could do for brown women, I wanted to take a chance and see how it might work for me.
Cost: I bought it at the Chicago Macy's (we have a Merz Apothecary which is the same vendor as Smallflower on amazon. com ) It cost me about $7, but it was so worth it. It was way cheaper than hauling cosmetics that only aggravated my skin or jeopardizing my health with horrible bleaching creams.
Smell: I enjoy Ayurvedic products so the smell is fine to me. Just sort of earthy but also a little cosmetic.
Results: I pair the rose hip seed oil with the cream (being dark, the cream makes my skin looks whitish without it and actually gets a little shinier with out the seed oil as a base) in the morning and night. I had a dark patch of scars and aggravated skin (from scrubbing and concealing) on my left cheek that made me very self-conscious. After using the cream for about 4 days now, I can actually see the entire patch has dramatically lightened to the point where I can distinctly see the scars that I was originally trying to reduce (and they are also fading quickly) which were hidden under the larger patch of darkened, irritated skin. The scars around my temples are fading as well as evening my skintone in general. Over the last few days, my best friend, who sees me regularly, told me my skin was glowing and couldn't beleive how flawless and beautiful it looked when I woke up after a LONG night of partying. Also, people have been walking up to me, telling me how amazing my skin looks and asking me what I use and it has really been just a few days.
Cons: The cream has parabens, but I love it anyway.
Ultimately, I highly recommend this for Black/Brown people with hyperpigmentation. It does not make your face uneven or discolored. It really just glows, brightens and fades!

Smells nice and is non-greasy, but has harmful ingredients Sep 30, 2009
By Alexa Gallagher
I ordered this turmeric skin cream because I have tried their Vicco toothpaste before and like it. So I thought that the Vicco lotion must also be nice and a natural product. I used it for about a month and like the fact that it's non-greasy and goes on smoothly.
But yesterday I checked the ingredient list out of curiosity. I noticed that the lotion includes Methyl Paraben Sodium and Propyl Paraben, which are harmful preservatives according to the Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database ([...]). Harmful ingredients like this get absorbed by the skin and enter the bloodstream.
For sure I will not use this lotion anymore, even though I liked the smell of it and its lightweight feel. I wonder why they use a chemical preservative, since they could just use Vitamin C and E as a natural alternative.

Excellent Product Mar 07, 2009
By Lola Fholliv
I had great results after having a terrible boil on my face that left a scar. You can't tell that it was ever there. My skin tone is African American.

Great product for hyperpigmentation May 24, 2009
By Bee Real
I'm a brown skinned African American woman with olive undertones. During my pregnancy I had severe acne that left even more severe scarring. To my horror nothing was working to remove the scars. Thank God, this product came into my life. It works very well for scars. I would suggest waiting to use this product when your acne has subsided for optimal results on scars. It doesn't seem to clog my pores and absorbs well into my skin. I think this is a great way to get the benefit of Turmeric without the stains. My skin was more vibrant almost instantly, and the severe scars began fading within the first few weeks. I have used this product for over a month and am very pleased with the results.

This is 50 mg NOT 70 mg be warned Oct 10, 2010
By M. Philips
Love this cream have been using it for years. I didn't see it at first though this is the 50 mg version which is not what I expected, so just be sure to read the weight/ volume as this cream comes in all kinds of sizes. My fault, should have read more thoroughly. Not a giant difference in cost, this one costs slightly more, just warning others. Also, I find having shipping multiply by $4.99 for EACH item is ludicrous if ordering multiple items from this seller, i.e. 3x quantity comes to 3x shipping = $14.97 !!! (its also called "Turmeric" not Tormeric." :-)
