    HQ-free lightening products for face and neck

    I've been using ambi fade cream(2% HQ) for nearly 3 months, and I am nearing my "HQ-resting period" of giving my skin a break from HQ products. My problem is I have no idea what type of product(s) I can use to replace it that are effective and won't allow my skin to revert. So far this current HQ regime has been working:

    *Normal A.M.*
    - Wash with Neutrogena Pore Refining Exfoliating cleanser
    - Dry face and apply 20% vit c serum to areas affected by hyperpigmentation
    - Wait 5-10 mimutes then apply Ambi fade cream on affected areas
    - Wait 2-5 minutes before applying Ambi Even & Clear Moisturizer with SPF 30

    *Normal P.M.*
    - Wash face with coconut oil to remove makeup
    - Wash face twice with Neutrogena Pore Refining Exfoliating cleanser to remove residue
    - Dry face and apply 2.5% retinol serum(also contains 20% vit c)
    - Wait 5-10 minutes before applying Ambi Fade cream
    - Apply Ambi Even & Clear moisturizer

    *Sunday & Wednesday P.M.*
    - Wash face with coconut oil to remove makeup
    - Wash face twice with Neutrogena Pore Refining Exfoliating cleanser to remove residue
    - Wash face with St. Ives Pink Lemon & Mandarin Orange Scrub to exfoliate
    - Dry face and apply vit c
    - Wait 2-5 minutes apply Ambi fade cream
    - Wait 5 minutes and apply thick layer of Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Mask. Let it sit for 5 minutes before blotting off excess


    Can anyone offer any suggestions? I've tried to browse the forums for example HQ-free regimes, but all of them seem too complex with dozens of products and I want something fairly and cheap yet effective because I'm on a tight budget :P

    Also is there anyway I can change my username on here?

    @Helpneeded2 kojie San acid soap is really cheap on Amazon and HQ free. People have had good results and I read that people who are resting the HQ should give the skin a good shock by using kojie Acid products so back in forth between these two is recommended. Remember SAP and sunscreen. Good luck my friend.

    Hey @Helpneeded2 ! You can maybe try Mitchell brand brightening products like Precious brightening gel. These gels are natural and mainly arbutin-based. They are also inexpensive.
