Hahaha, Dead!!! wasn't lucking on this thread but I popped in today and saw that you had mentioned me. I miss you too :kisskiss:.

Ok, you guys fill me in, what have I missed? I'm in Athens getting fairer while everyone around me is getting tanned. I did get a tan too went down to NC45 but I'm binding and casting to lift it and it is working back to NC42. I wondered why I tanned without being out of the sun much, cuz I stopped that vampire life, then I learnt Greece has a much higher UV index and even on a cloudy day you tan without realising. I must say I have not been using sunscreen. I just try to avoid to avoid the sun as much as I can without becoming a recluse. My detractors are trying to get me to go to the beach every weekend, two days in a row. The devil is a liar!!!
Wow you're back! Awesome. I was literally just thinking about you!
So are you living there or just on vacation? I didn't know there were different UV index in different countries? That explains why I got do light in France even when I didn't use any lightening products.

@Floreezy, living the life.......Greece :cloud9: right now your UV index and my UV index are the same but that is because we are having a rather warm spell. Still, no way could I go out and not wear sunscreen. It kills me when the sun beats on me when I have sunscreen on, I can't imagine what I would do without it on. Yes I'm the one walking with my palms up, darting in and out of traffic/people looking for the shade. I don't care if i have to zig zag across the street a time or two. :p

Don't be a recluse, live life, go to the beach, put your thong on :marchmellow:
sure it great hearing from you!! Beg them to extend your internet life there would ya we miss you around here :knuddel:

Thanks Gymmie. I miss you guys, Work has been keeping me so busy, I know that's a lame excuse but its the truth. Just like you I duck for shade and carry an umbrella around. I am going to scout for a white umbrella instead of the charcoal grey one I have been using.I'm glad you can relate to the sun. It is quite miserable to be honest!

I have about a month and half more here and then i'll see where my wanderings take me next.

Hey darling, that's sweet of you. I am here for work although I must admit I have snuck in a week long vacation amidst the Chaos. What's up with you and your lightening, what do you use these days? And yeah the UV index is no joke. I don't remember ever tanning this fast, even if it's a warm golden tone...ain't nobody got time for that!

@Floreezy while you are traveling the world, do let us know who has the best skincare products ok :p can't you get RA over the counter in Greece? And what kind of SS do hey have there anything decent?? Start passing out your SCT cards so they know you have a very large family. Safe travels to you, and don't forget about us here!!

Please update us on how that's going. I want Rihanna hands too! Make a thread about it when you're done getting results?

I'm only using G&G and kojie sans a couple times a week for maintainance. I'm taking a break from arbutin for about a month. I recently jump another shade and I'm now NC40! I took a break from lightening for a month because I had reached a plateau so glad I did because when I started lightening again I went from NC42 to NC40 in no time. Girl I can't believe it myself. I never thought I'd get this light. But I have been practicing SAP and I'm just gradually getting lighter.

@3shadeslighter what was your regimen initially?

Congratulations for reaching the maintenance stage! That's a mission within itself... :)

That's great. You should be the g&g poster child! SAP is key, I am going to searching for a sunscreen for my neck and arms. I hate the smell of sunscreen though, I hope I find a nice one. The sunscreens hear are mainly the ones you find all over Europe, Garnier, Shiseido, Nivea...I haven't found zinc sunscreens, but I haven't been looking at one in particular and oh the dreaded white cast!!!

I actually stumbled across a face care brand that I really like, i'll find time to review it. I bought three products in it's range, cleansing face wash, 4-in-1 face mask/scrub/repair/cleanser and the moisturiser. This is all I have been using and it has lifted my tan and faded the spots from a break out I have been having for the last 3 months..why does the name escape my mind now???
I have never really been a fan of RA, i find that lactic acid works better for me at exfoliating and clarifying my skin. I have seen RA products though. I'm not sure what sunscreen to get right now what do you recommend? Burnout is not one of the options here. A lot of the susncreens are chemical sunscreens, and they have things like Garnier, Shiseido, Nivea, Neutrogena etc and of course the designer brands YSL, Estee Lauder....

Im still using the banana boat baby sunscreen. I tried burn out and didn't like it at all. Something about the texture wasn't right for me. When I read the reviews in Amazon people were complaining that they changed the formula. The one I have been using for the past two years have worked for me and I go though tubes of that stuff. You get the white cast in the beginning but then it goes away and I swear it makes me appear even lighter!

Thanks, I don't think they have the banana boat here. I tested this one yesterday it leaves a bit of a white cast but doesn't smell bad, it costs about 6 euros.

And this one by Nivea which goes on like a moisturising lotion, with no white cast and costs 14 euros.

They have very similar ingredients. @gymrat where are you?
