This may be a simple question, but there rarely, if ever, is a simple answer--which is understandable. There is such a vast array of skin bleaching systems out there. It's almost impossible to find the needle in the haystack--if the needle is even there.
I have searched high and low for a legitimate skin lightening agent and it is a tedious task! The several that I have used either don't work AT ALL, or take so long to work that I just give up halfway through, realizing the amount money that would add up over time as I buy replacments (virtually, not working at all); I often read the reviews before considering a purchase. There's such a thing as patience, but then there is such a thing as INSANITY!: My entire life shouldn't have to revolve around the process that it would take to get my skin 1 shade lighter, nor should I have to die young because of dangerous ingredients.
I don't want to waste anymore hard earned money on skin bleaches that don't work AT ALL. Is there ANY skin lightener that has proven results? Not camera manipulations or false testimonials?
