only if i go back out into the sun. It's hard to resist... I love warm weather and most of the time I forget to put on sunscreen. But I get darker in the sun no matter what. So I'm back to using it again!

b/c of me being dark and i live in the south (its a 102 down here with a heat index of 110)
it takes me a little bit longer i would say about 2 to three months but when i do its about 2 to three shades pending how much sunblock i use and how often

I know, when I swim, I make a bunch of noise and waves but no moves.

I wish that I could use SPF 45, but that stuff makes my face really sticky. I don't like putting a lot of stuff on my face.

I have used a mix of kojic acid and glutathione products in 4 weeks, with no drastic lightening. I have just been more yellow/olive toned. I am brown skined with yellow/red undertone. So the products should work on my skin because i have brown skin and not black skin. Most of the skin lightening products works on brown skin. I will give the products more time.
