I have lots of scarring on my legs from eczema and hoped this would diminish the dark spots. So far I haven't seen a great deal of change in the coloring of my skin. However, this is a great cream for eczema. It's moisturizing and light. It dries and absorbs quickly into the skin. I often get bubbles under my skin with my eczema which I believe is a side effect of over moisturizing, however, if I don't moisturize my skin has red dry splotches. This is a perfectly well balanced cream.
