@pale-star not sure if your read this soap thread but it has great info. Even though its an old thread, the soaps mentioned still exist. I've tried so many soaps in my life but I do love Asantee soaps. https://www.skincaretalk.com/threads/soaps.40019/#post-777479

As for nuckingfutz gosh those were the days, loved him! He was in Thailand and would pop in and out when he had access and was able too. Lets @mention him and pray he see's it 馃グ
@nuckingfutz

As for your question about MUAC fade peel, I LOVE it!! Super easy to use, but can be strong if your not used to acids. I didn't read all that you wrote, just saw the question about MUAC. Is this your first peel? If so tred lightly. Its a mix of GA (30%) and LA (20%) with a splash of KA and MA. Leave on 5 minutes and rinse with soap and water!

Kojie San:oops: Yep! That's the soap that did me in, stings, stings, stings on my skin whoo it hurt! lol
My face felt very warm after I washed it off, think I left it on my skin too long. How is a soap suppose to
help if you wash it off so fast, so I let it dry then rinsed it off, bad idea I guess.
Yeahh our skin is too sensitive, I dare not use kojic soap on my face. I leave it on for like 20 seconds and it burns and for the rest of the week I have rashes and red dots on my face. Horrible lol. I'll keep to my 7% ordinary glycolic face toner for my face :cry:

OMG I've been looking at that soap again and again while shopping around online for more soaps lol! What was it like using it? Did it felt very strong or more on the gentle side? People shouldn't sleep on rice milk imo, it supposedly has lightening properties and when I used a rice milk soap from K Brothers, it felt very strong, like wanting to eat my permatan away type of strong. :oops:

This is non skincare related, but I've been using rice water shampoo and conditioner soap bars on my hair and it definitely made it grow much faster and longer than without them. Something about that rice! 馃グ

Happy V-Day to you all btw!
I may need to consider that rice milk soap after :D now I'm making a soap mix for my body (aka molato soap) which is basically a bunch of different soaps grated, melted and mixed together. I bought some nano white soap, kojie san soap, asantee (I only have the goat and tamarind left so I'll use that) and also Kojic white soap (it has kojic, papaya, arbutin, glutathione). I'll be applying it and leaving it on for like 10mins (maybe also with my sauna suit) before showering with a gentle soap. Because some parts of my skin is not receptive to anything!

Oh I have read through that thread but I don't think it'll hurt me to re-read it again, just to see if something new pops up for me, so thank you so much for bringing that old thread back from the grave lol!

I knowwww, it just seems like he was some soap expert and I was hanging onto all of his posts while I was doing my research, so it disheartened me to see that his last post was from 2015. 馃槶 If he could just tell us what that magical soap was that he mentioned was actually stronger than all the Asantees combined... like seriously, he said it was like if the soap was a Nobel prize or something, it was that... and it was apparently hard to get even in Thailand because of how coveted it was... of course I wanted to know what it was, ughhh!

I have used peels before, very gentle ones like an enzyme one or an LA lotion like Amlactin. I think I did do LA peels before like nearly a decade ago, but I really can't stand the smell of it. Are the MUAC peels at least unscented?

Okay that sounds amazing! How do you do this molato soap, if you don't mind my asking? I know loads of people these days make their soaps from scratch but I'm nervous in messing mines up lmao.

All LA based products will have a scent, like sour milk. Its the nature of the beast. I'm used to the scents they don't bother me. Fade peel has a scent but its only on for 5 mins and worth the smell, think of it that way ;)

yeah asantee is amazing I vouch on it
I haven't been able to find anything stronger but I cycle my soaps because I feel after 3 months it stops working as good
so I do african soap mix soap for 3 months, than switch to glutathione kojic dual soap than I switch to asantee than I go back to the african soap mi
@brownies19 your soap rotation idea seems very nice, I'll be adopting it. Do you mind sharing ingredients added to your african soap mix?
Recently kojie san has been working well even when I don't leave it on my face to dry. Leaving it to dry hurt my face so that method is a no for me! Soaps are an essential part of getting even skin tone, I'll be following this thread to learn more.

I caved and brought a 12 pack of K Brother's goat's milk soaps. Had another look around in the very old threads and saw that nuckingfutz said that the "straight up goat's milk" soaps from K Brothers are extremely strong, to the point that it may be more lethal than the goat's milk + tamarind mixtures from Asantee or other brands. I know I'm taking a huge risk but I think I'm ready for these little bars of death, lmao!

I need to ask though, but considering I know I need to add effective lighteners to my routine for permatan removal, how do we feel about the other products from the Kojie San line? I obv used the soaps before and they were great, but they have an American online store (KojieSanUSA.com) and I found these:

Kojie San Face Lightening Cream
Kojie San Body Lightening Lotion

They have kojic acid in them. Not sure I've been seeing old thread posts about these yet, they look a bit new, so just wondering! I know I should be adding acid peels to my routine, but just wanted to know about the other stuff first. Taking it easy right now with regular Dove beauty soap to wash myself these days ever since my Asantee soaps ran out. Honestly Asantee soaps are worth the hype, especially the goat tamarind, so if any one of you are reading this and on the fence, get emmmmm!

I also feel like I want to open up a new thread about vitamins and supplements that aren't just about skin lightening, but for other beauty benefits as well. Would this be alright? I am not too sure about repeating the same info when these old threads exist, so just wanted to know in case a mod here is reading this!

@pale-star Heyyyyyy I see this Asantee goat milk+tamarind soap is definitely worth a try. This forum is super helpful. Just ordered from a seller on Etsy. Any idea of serums, lotions for lightening too?.
There's a lot of products for skin lightening that it's quite hard to list them all. 馃槄
However, vitamin C is a great addition to a lightening routine. I've even seen large bottles of it for people to use all over their bodies. The serum helps with brightening.
Lotions and creams basically comes down to personal preferences. I've had my eye on the Kojie San line for their lightening lotions and creams, maybe you can try that first?

Hey all, real quick, I will do that supplement thread tomorrow once I get some shut-eye. Had a horribly busy week and I've been doing so much even today that I haven't caught the time to catch my breath, before I realized it's late at night and haven't done the thread. But I will, I promise, after I wake up and gather my thoughts. Thank you for your patience. 鉂

My K Brothers Goat's Milk soaps have arrived! I'm a bit scared that they really will feel stronger than the previous Asantee tamarind/goats milk soap, but hopefully I'm ready for it tonight when I take my nightcap shower before bedtime lol. I'll keep you all updated!
