oh ok.. yah! brighten and lighten are quite different...I have tried the DYI samples. But, several months back I had asked them will alpha arbutin lighten my skin a few shades and they said "no" and that it will only "brighten" my skin. So, I never ordered the full sizes.
Does mequinol lighten you in a few days ?I used alpha arbutin, it does lighten skin not just brighten. It is just not as dramatic as I would like, or as fast as I would like. The main reason I switched to mequinol is because I will get too tanned too fast, this is ideal for people who want to lighten just a few days. I never used retin-a with it, on other forums I heard that makes it work much better. You all can buy it from me, 4 ounces 50 dollars.
Nothing lightens in a few days. If something does lighten that quickly, then it's just illusionary. Some chemicals initially irritate the skin making it appear redder and thus lighter. Results measurement should be gauged in terms of weeks and months, not in days.Does mequinol lighten you in a few days ?
I've heard of people using up to 30% Arbutin. The good thing about Arbutin is that it's mostly safe compared to other agents. You can even ingest it (but it's for bladder health or something, not lightening).Hey has anyone tried an alpha arbutin lotion mixed with Hq and retin A? What percentage a.arbutin do you think will be most effective? 5% or how much more exactly?
Ok, I like to have my serum handy all the time, but whenever I mix with a lotion it turns brown and oxidize in a matter of days.Hey has anyone tried an alpha arbutin lotion mixed with Hq and retin A? What percentage a.arbutin do you think will be most effective? 5% or how much more exactly?
