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 ? @Black boy @gymrat @Ever yone .
@Adebee I used IKB Gel, it didn't work well for me being acne prone, I am just very careful what I apply to my face for that reason.

@gymrat, hope you are keeping safe.

Please can you help me with compounding a diy face cream with glutathione arbutin and niacinamide and where can I get the actives?

I live in the Uk - thanks a mill.

I have used diy la lotion and weekly peel, currently using the entire qei+ range ordered from the website in France - but darkened instead of lightening.

I am also taking vit c with 10grams of msm,vit e and d daily.

I do see a glow and more even tone on my face as that is the problem area. My body is at least 3 shades lighter naturally and even toned.

like you I’ve been looking for ami white serum for a while. It’s great to know that extreme glow gave you a nice pink pale tone. Did it just stop working/ you weren’t getting any lighter or did you get darker once you stopped? Which product by the extreme glow line were you using? Thanks in advance 🙂

Hey all. Been ages, a lots been going on and I have been unable to come on here or even do much this year.
But things are finally settling.

Came back to give an update on where my skin is at and what I've tried, new routines new results etc.
I originally started this thread on hopes of getting a pale/pale yellow tone as opposed to my persistent yellow undertones. Let's just say I've learned to accept the yellow, I wasn't able to get the maxiwhite KA serum still so.

When I'm free I'll be back on here with an update and pictures :)
Hopes you've all been well!

And does anyone know if G&G cream is still available, did a search online in my usual online stores but can't find.

Are you in SA? If yes, have you tried glam glow skincare products? If yes, is it good or she just uses instagram filters. I haven’t tried Olivera
I’m in Jhb ❤ you? Omg I am so disappointed, I bought the acne kit four weeks back to aid with the pigmentation and clear my skin. I broke out so much, I thought it’s just the first few days but now it is really just ruining my skin. I’ve decided to stop yesterday because I’m just making my skin worse. I decided to order from Skin Functional, just to clear my acne and acne marks.
A friend of mine used Olivera for three months, her skin is so soft, and her marks of probably the past five years have faded. I am tempted to try it out but I have read reviews about how it leaves white patches. So I am tempted to try it out but 😩😩

Oh also it has made my lips darker. I have natural pink lips, now I’ve noticed they are getting darker with each day. This tells me that the products are not as organic as they claim. There is no list of ingredients on the labelling from Glam Organic. This was just my experience, you can try it out and see how it works for you.

Thank you for the reply. Am in Canada but I follow her on TikTok. Based on what she’s advertising, her results are pretty amazing. Attached are photos of her ( the dark one is when she was pregnant and then she started her journey and now she’s hella light. Too bad her products are not as advertised because her transformation is crazy. Am glad you told me your truth though. Plus, they are very expensive. For international sale she wants R3500 for the cream and R2500 for shipping (total of R6000) for a small bottle of lotion. Another issue I have with her is she doesn’t respond to messages and if she does, she’ll send one word like “yes” or “no” or “ok”. So, I don’t know if she can’t write in English or she has an assistant who doesn’t speak English.

Have you tried Doro Mongy skincare line? She doesn’t ship internationally but I have heard good reviews, however with that said, her products are definitely not organic. Probably steroids overload

I haven’t tried Doro. I also heard her products are not 100% organic so I chickened out of trying them. I also saw Les Green’s YouTube videos, she uses Doro and it caused her redness around her nose and her lips are dark. I didn’t like that.
