Hey there @SkinQueen11 what are you needing help with?
@gymrat

Okay so I’ve been lightening for 4/5 years now. I used carolight cream to get to my goal. But I really wanna get off HQ & other creams like that. I started with Fair & White But caro gave me better results.
I wanna go 1 shade lighter, especially my face & simply maintain from there. Maintaining has been tricky. I also want to lighten my lips, knuckles and remove the dark eyes. I don’t want the bleached out look. I started breaking out too most likely cause of the cream and I want to stop this & remove the pimples.


I started a shade or 2 darker than Gabriella Union and I’m a caramel with yellow undertones. I want to be a light caramel with yellow golden undertones.


I use coconut oil & a Nivea sunscreen
I’m considering getting Kojic acid & mix it for myself. But I don’t know if that’s enough
I also want soaps to exfoliate & lighten
I’m considering African black soap & Kojic soap? I’m not sure where to purchase all these, I’m in South Africa
I’m gonna purchase regular Vitamin C supplements.


Please help in anyway possible? Thanks

Hi everyone, Gosh I haven't been on here in years. I cannot believe how long ago I joined. I see some familiar faces still holding it down lol (good job). Anyway, I haven't lightened in years now well not consistently anyway. I had to throw out a lot of my ancient products as they oxidized (I think that's the word). Can someone kindly update me on what HQ creams are currently working the best or popular? Surely Carolight cannot still be on top? lol. Most of the creams I once used are not available anymore according to eBay.
