Chello there 😛

Hoping I can crash this thread 😬
Basically I'm looking to exfoliate from a Nia Long permatan to my natural Zoe Saldana butter pecan glow. I posted my own thread and got some great feedback from moon maiden but just wanted to bounce my concerns off as many experienced members as I can.

If y'all wouldn't mind I'm reposting my concerns, questions, and regi below so I'd love any feedback you can share!!! To sum it up I need help with product selection to suit my goals (soap, serum) and make sure I'm using everything correctly and in best order....




Soaps:

Was leaning towards Nasabb black soap but have been researching this forum for other recommended soaps per your suggestion. Seems like most of them are well liked.. Likas, Kojie Sans, Dodo Osun. Is one better or worse than the other as far as lightening/brightening NOT whitening? Having a naturally butter pecan color I don't want that ashy look or whitened look. Don't mind lightening a shade or 2 but without looking white washed. I heard Kojie Sans gives a white ashy look???? Would Likas be more suited to the results I want? Or another soap??

I'm going to pick up amlactin. The bottle doesn't say 12% LA?? Can I use this everyday? If I understand correctly the only day I don't use the LA lotion is the day I apply my LA peel? What about the day before and day after? Since I'm only to use my butters at night what do I use if I'm not to use amlactin everyday?

I'm going to use LA 40% every week or every other week on face and LA 55% on body once a week Can I apply the solution everywhere?? Underarms, butt, inner butt (crack), inner thighs?

What's the one day peel you spoke of for joints??? Where do I buy this? Can I use it the day after I apply the LA peel? Could I use it on underarms, inner thighs, butt, etc?

I'll add a toner per your suggestion. I have witch hazel with aloe vera.

For SAP I'm going to get burnout face & body... Read another thread and this seems to be one of the few that doesn't leave a white cast. Better recommendation?

Weekly sea salt baths using KIT after soak.

Also need help with dark under eye circles. I forgot to mention it in my previous post but I've been researching and vitamin c, k, rosehip oil, almond oil comes up. Can't afford skinceuticals so I'm looking into cosmetic skin solutions... Any other vitamin c or k serums highly effective for dark circles?

soap (undecided)
witch hazel toner
rosehip oil
amlactin
badgers if leaving house

face pm:

witch hazel toner
vit c or k serum

Oh and I've read thru this thread as much as I could and researched the forum got a lot of my plan from that, just wanting to make sure I actually put it all together correctly.. Can't afford to mess up when it comes to acids !
