First of all, this product does work, but only if you follow the directions and depending on how severe your Spider Veins are. For instance: I'll have some people show me their Spider Veins and are merely 1 or 2 lines, my case is very severe on both legs and in splotches, I have 1 spot on the front of my leg about 2 inches across and 4 inches in length, then 2 more splotches on my other knee w/ another 2 inch splotch that were colors of red, blue and green. They were nasty. I never wore shorts and so never tanned my legs.
When I first applied this product I noticed the splotches on my knee faded in a matter of days, but the front of my leg took almost a month for it to begin fading (I'm still working on the front of my leg).
This isn't a one time use product, if you're desperate to be rid of your Spider Veins forever then you have to commit to this product and use it every single day.
First you start off by applying large amounts twice a day, and you will see results very quickly, but it will take 4 to 6 weeks. The problem is that you need more than 1 tube in the 6 weeks, you'll need about 3 or more. So buy this stuff when it's cheap. After 6 weeks you can die down to applying once a day, but that's if the Spider Veins have nearly faded away. If not, keep applying.
The tube also says the product works differently for different skin types, so it might not be certain that this product will work for you. So buy only 1 tube and see how it works for you.
Another thing, treat this stuff like it's gold, DO NOT let any of it go to waste. Even when you feel it's empty, remove the cap and squeeze it onto your leg like you would a tube of toothpaste. And after that, grab a knife or box cutter and cut open the tube (yes I really am telling you to do this), but don't cut yourself, and you'll be surprised w/ how much stuff is still inside. I just recently cut another tube and have it placed in a ziplock bag so the cream won't dry out.
This stuff isn't greasy and dries very quickly, it doesn't smell so bad either. I like how my legs feel and smell after I apply it.
So, in short, if you have one or two little spots then go on ahead and buy this product, you might need just 1 or 2 tubes. But if you have a severe case, and desperate, then be sure to fork over time, patience and some money.
All-in-all, I have spent close to 50$ on these tubes but I am really liking the results. My legs are almost cleared up and believe by next year for summer that I can get into a tanning bed and show off my pretty legs for the very first time of my adult life.
Anyway, I hope this review was of some help.
After quite a long time of using this product I am sad to say it hasn't removed up my Spider Veins. Sure it thinned them, but my case is too severe. The tube does say it will not work for everyone and works differently according to different skin types. I believe that my problem is that it's inherited. Some people who get this might not have it running in their family line and mostly recieved the Spider Veins from weight gain or lack of leg movement.
I am not blaming this on my family line because I'm lazy. I'm female, 5 foot 9 and 160 lbs., the correct weight for my height and age. Plus getting on the treadmill an hour each day and lift about 10,000 lbs a week by myself from work. I do plenty of working and walking, and if you do your research online this will normally make the Spider Veins go away. Even with the help of this product it does not work completely since I inheritted it from my Mom.
But, because this cleared up the Spider Veins some, I'm hoping that with a tan they'll be covered some more. I even have plans to send some to my Mom.
Like I said, try only one and see how it will work for you.
