Well I tried my natural journey like her. G&G oil was my go to and now no one sells the original right now so I’ve had to improvise. I’m using AHA lotions, Vitamin C serum, DIY Kojic serum and Kojic/AHA/gluta soap. I take 2000mg of vitamin C a day, (not sure if that has made a difference for me) So far I’ve only brightened from that, I had a really nice glow but then I stopped for a few days and my glow left 🙄. Maybe it’s the MSM that helped her. Did she ever say how long it took her to get to that shade?

Mega dosing MSM is pretty safe. There are some old threads about it. The only issue would be excess hair growth, pimples, and other side effects.....So you’d have to watch for the side effects.

She was a SCT member at one point. She said it didn’t take that long like 6 months to a year. Her member name was 3shadeslighter

Rip G&G I’ll always love you lol she’s very lucky to get her hands on the original if that really is the original
This forum is a gift and curse sometimes, we come on here and share what’s been working for us, the lurkers stalk the thread and buy up everything, and before you know it’s sold out everywhere. Then the dreaded fakes takeover. That’s truly the worst part of this whole process so if you guys can do DIY or find a mixologist you can trust, stick to that.

I take msm and vitamin c in powder form, excellent combo, will definitely brighten you, give you a nice undertone, clear/brighten your nails and eyes, I’ve noticed eye lash growth aswell . As far as mega dosing, please ease you’re way into it so your body can build a tolerance for it otherwise the side effects are nasty. When the pandemic started I decided to megadose and girrrllllllllllllllll the cramps/diarrhea were pure hell

Oh yes!! She's the one who convinced me to buy G&G in the first place! That oil changed my life I'm so sad its not available anymore. I remember I was buying it right before they stopped releasing it and it was fake 😭
I hope another product similar comes out soon. That kojic and bearberry mix was incredible. I've been trying to come up with my own version of that oil but I can't figure out what I need exactly to dissolve bearberry or where to get it. If anyone knows please reply. Most of the bearberry i find is for ingesting.

Has anyone had luck finding a G&G alternative? I’m really trying to find one.

girl that’s like finding a needle in a haystack, g&g was just too damn good . I mean it’s not impossible to find a replacement but the market just so damn saturated now and the message boards are somewhat dead no one is sharing like they did in the old days probably In fear that it will be bought up and constantly out of stock. You might want to consider doing DIY or maybe getting a mixologist, that the only way I’ve been able to hold a candle to mr G&G

So I wanted to post some lightening inspo. There’s this rap artist named Lola Monroe. She’s definitely lightened. She’s of Ethiopian decent. She has her own skin care line now.
