Has anyone had success with these brands in lightening dark elbows? If so what product did you use?

Many of the pundits over in the anti aging dept lightened their dark elbows & knees with TCA peel kits. I did this (only one 12.5% TCA peel ) & it made a big difference in my elbows. Go over to that dept & check out the TCA peel thread. Pay extra attention to what Lexi & Goatlady have to say on this.

I am currently using retin-hydro combo on my knees. I've been doing it for about 2 weeks. Not much difference yet. But I'll keep you up date.

I've used the fair and white strong bleaching cream in the white box on my knees and it made a slight difference. I am planning on trying the tca.

The TCA is quite the adventure. Scary the 1st time: my hands were literally shaking! I'd've never tried it w/o Goatlady & Lexi. Now I am glad I did

Funny. I was going to make a post about Fair and White today. My HQ serum I made looks and feels exactly like the F&W Exclusive Whitenizer Gel Cream in the skinny gold box with the blue tube inside. I will know tomorrow if it works as well as the F&W. My face reacts fast.

I called the Fair and White headquarters 2 years or so ago trying to get them to sell me a giant tub of that stuff as I knew it could make my body high yellow. If this stuff works the same, I say TAKE THAT F&W! HaHa!

I heard people say that before and honestly that one never did anything at all for me!!!!! Now I know ppl say you can get the fake fair and white but this looked authentic with the seal and I was like
but the one I do use that works is the one in the white box its called the gel cream and it say strong bleaching treatment on the box

have you tried that one?

What experience did you have with the blue one?

I haven't tried the one in the white. The blue one can make a person high yellow. If it turns brown before you use it up, throw it away. I think you'd finish it by then, though.

Yeah, guesso.com has some campaign going on how to spot the fakes.

Ohhhh
I was like... HOW'D I MISS THIS QUESTION! When I was responding to this topic, I was doing 3 or 4 other things and hadn't hit submit reply.

I melt 5gr of HQ into 30ml(a few ml less can be used to make it a little more potent) of glycerin. I have ordered DPG which will be here next week.

What I do:
1.Find a pan that won't be used for cooking to boil some water in.
2.Fill a beaker with 30ml of glycerin and place into pan of boiling water.
3.Use meat thermometer to check when the glycerin is at 170degrees.
4.Put HQ in beaker of glycerin and stir and stir.. until HQ has melted.
5.Pour into a pump bottle.
6.Let it cool.
7.Shower
8.Apply.
9.Become high yellow.



Now, about F&W. I remember 1 time I bought a tube of it and it was 'grainy' as heck. They must have not let the HQ melt all the way. That stuff was $15 a tube. This stuff costs around $1 or so(maybe less) when you factor in the cost of electricity to melt it. It's like have my own skin lightening warehouse!

This can be done over and over to fill a big pump bottle. When I tried adding more, it turned brown. I'm going to make 6oz or so later today(little by little). Maybe that will last till my DPG arrives.

Thanks for sharing the recipe. So far it hasn't turned brown on you? THis seems to be the big stumbling block people run into in compounding at home with HQ. Please let everyone know, after 4 weeks or so of usage, how well it worked for you.

Nope. Not brown. And, it seems to be working almost as fast as that F&W gel cream I used to buy.

I just ordered the Fair & Flawless 5XF Intensive Skin Whitening Gel and the
Crème`De Laser Concentrated Skin Whitening Cream. I will be using both of them on my arms only and will report back on how they work on my elbows as well.

Do let us know, Nikki! I'm not interested in trying F&F, myself, but I am interested in the results of the products' 'hype' from a 'real' person and I've seen your name on other boards. Good Luck!
