Yes noticed lightening, but also my tummy has been a difficult area after 2 babies it's been pretty dark until now. I am noticing that my skin over is looking more uniform. The lighter area is lighter, but the darker area is lightening more. I read diacetyl boldine encourages even tone, so may be thats why.

serum has - glutathione, kojic acid, vitamin c
maxi tone lotion - glutathione, vitamin c and diacetyl boldine

I am using the maxi tone with serum. I bought 4 serum for the 350ml.

Prior to this was using francoise bedon - supreme and royal, although the supreme was more effective for me than royal, due to price I could only use 2 serums per bottle of the francoise bedon, but to be honest the result was not as good as this one, but noticed lightening.

I used QEI prior to francoise bedon, with QEI did not see much result. I always buy from official website as the shipping from paris to Ireland is not too bad.

I tried hq briefly for 1 month i hated result, before I went to non-hq lighteners, i think my skin likes kojic acid.

This fair and white is cheaper than QEI and Francoise bedon, but the result is better, I feel due to price I can afford more serum for better result. I am sticking to this long term I think. I also started the exfoliating soap yesterday evening, although still plan on using my 15% glycolic wash twice a week.

I am also using so white serum and so white gel for elbows and knees ( serum contains kojic acid, gel contains kojic dipalmitate) with good result, in conjunction with the ordinary peel 30%. I bought the so white when I was in the uk, but this is not available on paris website not sure why.

I just got my Lissa White and kenacol for my butt(the only part of my body that is naturally dark) and spent 20 million dollars on it bc favbeauty in UK jacked the price up but now I'm scared to use it bc....wtf is actually in it.
So thanks to you I'm broke as a joke bc I just ordered this, thank you for the ingredient info!

I want to know what the difference between the regular lotion and maxi tone one... But from the reviews I seen they say you can easily go up 4 shades you just have to use more serums and mix correctly part it in 4 sections. So don't mix one bottle and one serum.

I only used it for 3wks when I posted the message, I will say it lightened a shade in that time. I was using it once a day, but was using 8% glycolic lotion 3-4 times a week at night. The fair and white mix was every morning.

The maxi tone of fair and white usually have more lightening actives than regular lotion.
I know some people have used regular lotion with serum and tubes mix for potency (tube in europe has kojic dipalmitate not HQ)
@sayuribishh i think the ikb gel should be fine, I only mixed mine with the serums, but 4 serums for the maxi tone bottle, don't want to use HQ either.

The one i bought from paris has no HQ or arbutin. I have used both ingredients in other products, arbutin darkens me and HQ gives me red colour. None of which I experienced with this. No HQ smell either.
All fair and white lotion (paris version) uses diacetyl boldine as main active, hence u don't really lighten with the lotion alone, you can check french reviews on you tube. If it has HQ u will lighten.

I had to use 4 bottles of serum with the lotion to get result. I have used Kojic acid based product for a while, this is the active ingredient in the serum. This is the result I get with this.

I guess everyone's experience is difference. The fair and white I purchased from Paks a UK beauty supply store contained HQ, I'm very sure of it.
I'm immune to HQ and get the same reaction anytime I use a product with HQ - Thick leathery red elephant type skin, I also get very dark. All of which I experienced with Fair and white.

Again this was my personal experience. I shared a similar review about QEI which I purchased from the Paris website and was told there was absolutely no HQ in the European version, now it's been confirmed there is HQ in all QEI!!

Nothing against HQ BTW.

How does this wash out your skin or will you still keep that golden brown glow? I don’t want to be white I just want to enhance my golden brown tone Also where did you buy it from I am also in the un
