does anyone have any left over F&F gel i could sample?
Understable, but one cannot help but reading the numerous posts about the benefts of F&F; and in many cases, used by RA/HQ users.One lightening product is enough along with Retin-A, everybody just gets excited and wants to put as many products as they can but then you'll have a washed out, pale/sick, blatantly bleached look, why would you want that? Go steady with one product and you'll have results faster than experimenting, stopping, layering different products at once. Results come within a years worth of time and considering that it is only a year out of your entire life to achieve your goal color, its not worth rushing.
Thank you, LNLAs for the "monobenzone crusaders" I believe those people had the benefit of doing heaps of research and having family members with vitiligo to advice them AGAINST its use for cosmetic purposes but I have no idea why they continued with it anyways. That lead to other members on the forum following in the monobenzone footsteps.
Are you talking about the F&F for the body??yes I believe from experience ONLY ONE FF products yields measurable results the 5 xf and I recommended it to those who have used the HQ/RA for a couple of months without much success or those who want their stubborn pigmentation gone. This would be a great product for Karennanev's problems, she ordered it and I am waiting to hear her success story. So I give this particular product a "thumbs up".
Hi again everyone, yes I have decided to stick to the HQ/RA on my face. What a difference a week makes. Such a simple thing as a tiny amount of HC cream mixed in with my HQ during the day has made an enormous difference. It took me two months and a lot of grief on and off to discover this but right now my face is looking so much better than it was a week ago, and probably better than it has for years! Just because it is so calm and comfortable now during the day. All the redness has gone and so it is much fairer. So I have to repeat to all of you who have just started their HQ/RA regime, despite what I said in my post a week ago, IT DOES WORK!!! I still have a lot of sun damage which I see in my bathroom first thing in the morning, but after my HQ/HC, my invisible zinc and my pure cornstarch powder my face looks so calm and fair. When my face looks like that first thing in the morning with nothing on it, I will be very happy and will have reached my goal. I am now very confident it will happen. It may take many more months but that's OK with me.Yes the 5XF Gel.
In another thread she posted she just received it, but is going to stick to the hq/ra since it's starting to work for her again.
umm... i started the 10%HQ thread cuz i was going to use that for my body,How many lighteners are you plainning on using?
I see you started a thread for 10%hq and another for hydroquinone/Retin A.
Oh LNL, I want to do it just for youkaren, I know u still want to stick with the RA/HQ, but do u think there is any way for u to start using the 5xf on your face at least once a day for the next month to see an improvement, please? I really wanted it to work to completely get rid of the sun damage on your face.
OK, you have talked me into it! I have to admit I'm a bit nervous about stopping what I was doing, but I trust you! I cleansed my face and put on my F&F about an hour ago. I love how it feels after it dries. Silky and no greasiness at all. Do you think I should use it in the day too? I really want this to work as fast as possible now that I'm doing itleave the RA, use the FF every night as early as you get home after dinner with the fam and leave it on till you wake up in the morning, stick with it for a month, all hte acids have the same exfoliating effects as RA and guess what? NO PEELING and NO REDNESS!!!! just lighter skin every morning. I trust myself too giving you this method, infact I am so confident that if you dont see measurable/noticeable results in one month then I wont bug you anymore.
