I used it a few years ago,it had potential but cos I was travelling a lot at that time I didn't fully dedicate to it then...I have been on a hunt for sepiwhite based line that doesn't break the bank and that has led me back to this brand.

So you no longer use HQ?
Link me to some of your previous HQ regimen before I make a bomb.

Save your $$. This line doesn`t work. I think they changed the formula. Used 3 jars with no results - no brightening/lightening.

I stopped hq a long time ago and started formulating and experimenting with different lightening powders (KA,Sepi.Glutha,Gigawhite etc)

My former hq regimens ................gotta try and remember again as its been so long!!!

I want to try HQ for few months.I've all this powder you mention but I can't dissolve sepi-white even at high temperature.How do you combine all this powder together and how is the result?

Sepiwhite powder is only oil-soluble btw and is not soluble in water

For other powders,aloe juice or rosewater is fantastic as well using a double boiler

For faster results, I use up 5-10%

OK thanks I will try with oil again maybe a different oil or I should buy another powder from another supplier.

Perhaps your powder wasn't in the purest form,Mine is purest form and costs a fortune hence i'm switching to already made
Yes that's why I am considering buying another powder from another supplier in small quantity first and try to dissolve it. Didn't your mix work? Why are you switching to already made?

Hey, may I ask which recipe for the sepiwhite you used @WaterBoy86 I read so many things on here about compounding sepiwhite and how difficult it is because of the ph level. It would be really nice to here from you how you did yours.

I also have sensitive skin and I get on just fine with their line and I don't think they are more acidic than G&G products!



If you can tell me what are you looking to achieve,I will suggest other alternatives.

Thank You @Waterboy... I placed an order after going through the post, I just want even and glowing skin, tired of these African creams. I bought the gel and cream from gittel’s for 49.99 each( original price was a $100 for 4.0oz I believe). It’s pricey but I’m going to use it for 4months and I’ll post a before and after. I live in California and it’s been burning up, working in the desert makes it work. Hopefully the ‘gods’ will smile down at me and make my potion work.
