Are we talking about the lotion with the pump? There's a tube cream and one in a jar as well. How would you know which one has HQ and which has KA? On the Mitchell brands site it says it contains 1.9% HQ. Also does this make your skin pale, yellow, or red? @EmmaGH
They have a whole kit. They Have K.A and HQ Lotions versions. If you're in UK you'll get only the Kojic Based version
(I learnt Mitchellbrands doesn't even ship to the UK)

Maybe you're talking about their Gel with the Pump which has HQ (30ml)

They have a Normal gel too which has Arbutin.

Their TuBe Cream has HQ

The products gives yellow tone/pale yellow @shallalah

Thanks @ Triumph- I am based in uk.

Will try Amazon xx
hey ayo!
like @TRIUMPH said, try a Mitchell brand tube (ikb, precious, lighten up etc) they contain alpha arbutin & may work.
happy birthday in advance!
@TvJunkie, thanks a mill and also for the best wishes.

Just looked online and can’t find any of those brands in Uk unless from the states😔.

Over here the anti-aging is more expensive than the normal one. But I haven't tried the Anti-aging one yet but the Anti-aging ain't that popular like the normal one with HQ probably it doesn't lighten much

I'm on skin lightening break cos of the lockdown

So far I've tried the Normal ones with HQ and KA
@Goldencream

@EmmaGH thanks! I'm going to start with the normal one cus thats what I've seen here.

I live in the US so I'm guessing HQ version is the only version available right now. Im not sure about the gel in a pump container but was talking about the tall lotion bottle. Have you tried any of the other products beside the lotion @EmmaGH? Thanks

Hello I'm not EmmaGH but lemme respond. Yes the lotion in the pump. All the ingredients are written at the back. I guess it depends on where you live too. If you get yours in Europe be sure to get kojic but the ones in US, Africa would be HQ. One thing for sure if you buy directly from their website you get HQ version. I believe people's natural undertones and skin type varies when it comes to the way a person lightens. Some will use HQ and get pale look others yellow and others red but most people who use HQ based creams usually get a yellowish pale look. @shallalah
My skin turns oddly red, almost burnt looking when I use HQ. KA made me pink/pale. Nothing had made me yellow but I'm naturally more yellow toned. I wish HQ worked for me like it does on others.

Hello @EmmaGH , since you have experience with these two, is lightenup more effective than so white?

Ok I've tried their other Serum with Vitamin D and the Tube Gel with Arbutin @shallalah

These ones were also good

So white is weak especially the Big Size So White (500mls) unless u boost with either 2/3 gels or tube creams and 2/3 serums (depending on the shade u want to achieve)

But So White Maxitone(250mls) works faster than the Big Size (500mls) but u will still need additional serum/gel to the Maxitone

Lighten Up Plus is more potent than both but it's drying just like So White Maxitone

I second this. So White is not so white after all. It’s slower than I expected, plus it stops working after a while. You have to take a break and start again. The tube cream is the worst, it’s slow and gives a pale tone without glow. The lotion gives yellow tone and glow.

Quick question dears , has anyone used clear essence lightening serum without hydroquinone? I used fair and white 'so white tube cream ' on my face and i started breaking out on my forehead badly but it lightened me.
So i started with the clear essence serum and i have redarkend for real.
Has anyone used ikb gel or new york on acne prone face and did it work ? @Blackboy @gymrat @Everyone .
