My original tone is NC35 which goes up to NC40 in the summer if I don’t wear sunscreen. This cream easily brought me to NC25 in a month. My mum is the lightest in our family and I became lighter than her. She knew something was up and was giving me weird looks LOL!
    @Ethereal95 oh wow no way did you use it along or mix with something . I will give it try after I’ve reached my goal. I saw in cosmetic r us in Birmingham

    Where do you get your lightening glycerin? Are there harsh chemicals in it?

    I’m not sure what your goals are but my goals are to maintain a clear, healthy, even complexion and brighten some areas of my body.

    AM ROUTINE:
    1) wash face with water (no face wash)

    2) apply glycolic acid toner

    3) apply The Ordinary’s niacinamide 10% (this brightens my skin, makes pores pretty much invisible, evens out skin tone and all the other good stuff)

    4) I then follow up with sunscreen (Jack Black’s oil free sunscreen with SPF 45)

    PM ROUTINE:

    1) shower with kojie san soap (once a week I’ll use a Korean Italy Towel to remove all the dead skin)

    2) wash my face using Uriage cleansing cream

    3) after stepping out the shower, I’ve started applying lightening glycerine on my knees, elbows, buttocks and my neck (just to keep the areas nice, bright and even).

    4) i’ll use my glycolic acid toner again

    5) apply The Ordinary’s niacinamide 10% serum

    6) apply The Ordinary’s caffeine eye gel

    7) previously I was applying IKB gel mixed with CeraVe’s SA smoothing cream but then I realised that I don’t want to be using lightening creams on my face.

    I now use the CeraVe SA smoothing cream on its own without mixing it with anything and my skin looks amazing. It is poreless, spotless and even. I find that the less products you apply on your skin, the better.

    8) lightening glycerine on my hands before bed to keep them moisturised and to brighten them.

    Once a week, I will use The Ordinary’s AHA 30% + BHA 2% peeling solution. (Usually on Saturday)

    I sometimes use a turmeric face mask I picked up from my local Indian store. It’s cheap and it works amazingly.
    Wow i have those same ordinary products you have. Those are the products i am planning to use on the weekend! I want to be beyonces shade or cassie’s or like your shade nc25 while also maintaing clear skin. Thank you!

    @shawtykid20 Oh cool, I will have to check that out! I visit Birmingham quite often so I will definitely check that store out sometime. And nope, I mostly used it alone. I find it works best that way. I layered it with piment doux at one point but this just made me peel faster. So yeah, it’s best to use it alone but I’m guessing one would achieve faster results if they layered it with something.

    @caramelgirl I’m currently using this:
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bright-Expr.../dp/B07KMD4MKW

    It’s my first time ever trying out a lightening glycerine. It hasn’t got many reviews but there are some if you search on google. They are positive and talk about how great the product works. It’s only my third day using it so i’m giving it two weeks.

    @Meermeer you’re welcome! Yes The Ordinary is a great brand! I trust their products and have had some great results with them. I’m thinking about trying the arbutin serum sometime.

    Don't use AHA Or BHA with Niacinamide at the same time....

    U can use one in the am(Niacinamide) and the other in the pm(Glycolic toner) or wait 30mins - 1hr before applying the other

    Same apply to Using Vitamin C Serum And AHA Or BHA products...

    @EmmaGH Thanks for your reply! I didn’t know you weren’t supposed to use AHA with niacinamide? Is there any particular reason as to why? I’ve been using my niacinamide after my glycolic toner (every night) and my skin is as clear as ever. I’ve had 0 issues with it
