I just started using the whitenizer gel from fair & white. I am already seeing results in just a few weeks. I'm going to keep using it and let you know of the results. Has anyone else used it? How long did you use it and did you ahve any bad side effects?

yes it does work expect extreme whitening in the next weeks to come, but after a while especially if your out in the sun you will start to develop hyper-pigmentation on your temples and on your cheeks- this may take a while to occur it took 1 and half for me but trust me it will happen, maybe get something for the hyper-pigmentation whilst using the fair and white.

I've read horror stories about this product. It will appear to work for a short while but then damage occurs. their frankly racist & offensive to Indian people ADS are coersive & shameful the manufacturer is American giant Unilever. The same people who make Dove products & are selling self-esteem to North American women are selling SHAME to Indians & Asians. You have a right to make yourself over however you desire but do not recommend this ineffective product.

I used the Fair and White Whitnezer a few years ago. It worked just like advertised. I became light in like 3 days and then got lighter as the weeks went on. My skin got incredibly clear too. The downside is that after a few months you get darker again. I've experienced this with a lot of the over the counter lightening products. The results don't last at all.

The original line of Fair and White is okay. I got minimal results. But it didn't work as good as the Whitnezer. The lotion is crap IMO. It gave me acne

Yeah, why does it stop working like that? I think I stayed light for a few months and then gradually became browner and browner..

I found the same is true with Meladerm...fast lightening, then skin gets darker than before use...just my experience, others may have had better results than me. I have tried them all, just gets so discouraging, amount of $$$ which is wasted on useless products..

Cheers,

I went through the same thing I've used a lot of bleaching products from my local beauty supply store, and on Guesso.com. They all seem to do the same thing, make you lighter and then after a certain period of time you start to get darker again. Even the gel starts to absorb in your skin differently when it doesn't work anymore.

you sure your not talking about fair and lovely? They are the ones with negative adds. I've never seen any adds for fair and white. I have used their products and they worked. Not all of them but a couple and in fact I will use no other soap but their AHA soap. I even have my hubby using it, it contains lactic acid and omg makes ur skin smooth. I've used for about a year.

I love myself enough not to use those products...or any other "bleaching" products. It seems these products cause skin damage and sometimes irreversible. Not only that, but once you stop using them; you will go back to your original skin color. I think slow and steady is better than quick results. It is the same if you do a crash diet, you will lose a lot of weight quick but once you eat normal again, you gain it all back and then some. But if you take small steps, having a healthy lifestyle is likely maintained. I digress, anyways I DON'T comprehend why people want to lighten their skin or be obsessed about tanning. I think skin color should be a trivial and irrelevant matter. People make it more than what it is or should be.

Ondine-Hypocrites aren't they? I didn't even til' recently that companies like L'oreal, Dove,etc selling bleaching creams overseas. But they only care about money, of course. They are selling what people want... And I seen an commercial or a skin lightening company and it was offensive. It was a darker skinned Indian guy and a fair one. And basically the light toned man said, it's not because of that but because of your skin. He tosses him some lightening lotion, he become fair, and in the end gets the girl,smh. That commercial would not fly in America.

We love ourselves too that is why we want to improve our skin tone . If you dont want to lighten ur skin - that is your decision. You do not need to understand why people lighten their skin or get a tan coz it is none of your business.

Ebony, I've seen all those F&L ads on You Tube. People (esp women) in India as well as Indian women in other countries are becoming vocal critics of these advwrts & their offensive tactics. I fully support a person's right to alter their appearance whether that means weight loss with batiatric surgery, hair perming colouring or extensions or safely using a sunless tanner or a safe lightening agent. That, for me, is not he problem. The problems begin when people are:

1. Sold a dodgy product (dangerous, won't do what it claims, overpriced, vague claims etc.)

2. Coerced into buying by being 'shamed' or 'humiliated' (made to feel ugly as they are or 'not good enough')

3. Sold false promises such as in the ad you mentioned for F&L (our cream will make you: rich, famous, get the guy/girl of your dreams, guarantee you a great job)

these are things a cream cannot do. These are also things not guaranteed by skin tone alone. Lighter skin may be advantageous in some cultures & societies, BUT having the education & qualifications, talent, skills, experience etc. are what get people their careers. Imagine someone fair claiming the 'right' to be a neurosurgeon or astrophysicist based upon the fact that they were pale? Einstein had olive skin & was no beauty to look at. David Suzuki is Japanese/Canadian, on the dark side for a Japanese person & has a ball of frizzy hair. He's also one of the most respected scientific authorities on earth.

We have to have common sense & know the limits of what lighter skin is likely to do for us. You'll have the same spouse, home, kids, job etc. you did before you lightened-unless you change your qualifications through education & apply for a better job. Unless you divorce your spouse, you'll wake up beside the same person in the same home.
