    The 2020 Skin Lightening Thread

    Hello everyone, as we come to the end of a decade and beginning of a new one, I would like us to share our experiences, regrets, lessons from skin lightening products we've used in the past decade. Creams, gels, serums, soaps, injections....

    What products have you used in the last 10 years and you regret using?

    What products worked for you and what products damaged your skin?

    What products will you continue to use in 2020?

    What was your starting shade, what is your current shade, what is your goal shade?

    After a decade of skin lightening, did you ever reach your goal?

    You can answer in no particular order or skip whatever questions you like. Would be great to hear from you. Please feel free to give more details if you wish. Let's revive this thread.

    I regret using: Carowhite (cream, oil, tube), Fair & White So White Skin Perfector lotion (Europe version), Clairissime lotion, clinic clear, Body white lotion, dermovate gel, carotone. Will update as I remember.

    I am using F&W exclusive with Extreme glow serum, carobright lemon serum, betavate gel.

    I definitely plan to keep using F&W cos that's the only cream I use and don't have to keep looking at my skin like a mad woman. After I finish this Extreme glow, I won't buy it again.

    My starting shade was NC45, now I'm NC42

    I'm glad I never tried Gng. It was the most talked about cream on this forum after Carowhite. For some reason, the name turned me off

    - I started with skinlight used that in 2009 I believe. I lightened but not drastically. It helped me get rid of my extremely bad acne.

    Then a friend introduced me to carolight. „Girlll I used this and looked like a video vixen you gotta try this cream!“ she did not lie lol the cream made me super light and that’s when the addiction started lol. I was light but really high yellow/ orangey looking and knuckles were a nightmare and I had white patches all over. Fakes started circulating and every shop stopped selling it and it got harder and harder to get hq in stores.

    Next in line was vit fee. I was mixing it with some serums I don’t really remember but i had the most beautiful skin color. I was so high yellow I really had Rihanna’s skin tone and was wearing blonde hair everyone was turning their heads after me. I used pills to gain weight and these were my downfall!!! They were steroid pills that make you gain weight unhealthily quickly so I gained like 20 pounds in a short period of time. After 3 months of usage my skin literally ripped. My tights look like a lion attacked me. I have them on my bum, my skin around my armpit, a bit on my boobs it was a nightmare. Every day I woke up to new stretch marks I was crying for weeks. Stopped all creams and only used shea Butter to at least stop the spreading of stretch marks.

    Even though I stopped all creams I still kept my skin tone for some weeks I suppose because of the steroids in my system, then my color dropped and I had scars I was devastated. I used skin light again but it didn’t make me as light anymore. Then I got back to this forum and decided I wanted to go natural.

    I started using g‘n‘g it worked sooo slowly I almost kicked it to the curb. Then I recognized a slight lightening effect. I started mixing it with the oil, Neoprosone, precious gel - it made me light again but this time not high yellow but a pale glow. I always thought I would not like myself being too pale bc it wouldn’t look realistic with my features but it was actually a really beautiful tone. I think I used this cream the longest. Used it for 3.5 years until again, fakes circulated and the toll threw away my 200€ Worth order bc Germans customs is a messss.
    Anyway gng was bae but tbh it really thinned out the skin extremely and I don’t believe it was natural at all but it didn’t do me any harm.

    Now I’m cream hopping bc nothing compares to gng and I really wanna stop hq. I used QEI+ ... biggest scam cream ever I used it with serum and maxilight serum. It didn’t do anything but give me a glow. No lightening at all. When my coworker told I resemble Whitney Houston I was like ok that it man duxk this shxit lol I was done done. And I hopped to F&W so white maxitone version. I used it until a couple days ago when someone on this forum said it contains ish that u use to conserve dead bodies So I’m done with that one too lol. The cream is oooookay I would say it’s a bit like skinlight but slower. And it contains hq which I didnt like.
    Right now I’m only exfoliating and I’m lurking on lightenmes thread to see if Glutha is working, I wanna use it but I’m a broke student so I gotta Plan it all out first.

    So in a nutshell what worked: vit fee, carolight, gng and also carotone (carolight in a slightly less harsher way)

    What didn’t work: Qei+ probably way more that I don’t remember now.

    Oh and idk who might relate to this but bc I have very acne prone skin and sensitive skin on my face I could never use ikb and Neoprosone on my face for too long. It thinned out my skin and made it red.

    Starting shade: I think nw45 but I probably got mismatched bc I was nc42 on my lightest - normally You can’t change undertones. My fav is nc44 tho everything beyond that is really hard to hold for me.

    For 2020 I wish to use only supplements, my exfoliating stuff and start diy lotions coz I’ve been using toxins for way too long.

    Anyway lightening for around 10 years is actually crazy but I really had a confident boost when I was at my lightest and what they say about ppl treating you better/ differently might be true, but it def also stems from ppl noticing how confident you actually are.

    on to new beginnings and may the next decade be as deLightful as this one. | Cheers ~

    Probably because of the price and I don’t trust it. I mixed half bottle of the serum into half bottle of my F&W. After mixing it, I rubbed it on my hands to test. One hour later I noticed red bumps like rashes on my hands. I freaked out !!! I later added 10 capsules of vitamin E oil to the mix and put the cream in the fridge. After then it’s been working like magic. When I tell you I’m glowing and lightening eh? I almost want to eat my skin. No side effects yet but I’m still scared of that serum. The vitamin E oil really helped and fridge temperature balanced out the chemicals. I’ll give it 2 months before I decide to keep or stop using it.

    @deeznuts great review. Thanks for sharing. The F&W So white with HQ does not contain Formaldehyde. It is the Europe version without HQ that contains it. But you can check the ingredients to be sure. If it has “Formaldehyde” written on it, then pls run. That’s a cancer causing agent.
