@Lightpapi it made me pale yellow , to be honest it’️s best mix I’️ve ever used. I’️m stopped using it cause the shop stop selling the gel. I might go back to it
how many shades did you drop in how long? And u think it’ll be good if I start it as my first lighteners after exfoliating and wean off into HQ?

@CaramelCoffee Can’t remember how long I was using it for , I was nw45 , I went from that to pale yellow. Yeah but just watch your skin as I said everyone skin different , you might get different results. How long do you want to use it for

My elbows knees are sooo dark and my skin is still uneven I hate how ugly it looks I feel like it just ruins my skin I look like I have snake skin. Is there any way to get rid of this look or will it go away as I continue to exfoliate? Also the back of my arms are dark I’ll post skin pictures PLEASE HELP ME.

I just started exfoliating not too long ago so I don’t know if I need to wait to see results but I think the carowhite soap I wish with might be making me dark! My skin is like this all over uneven with dark marks “strawberry bumps” uneven and ugly. The discoloration makes it look so bad. It’s not as noticeable in this pictures.

Just did my first glycolic acid peel. How long do I wait after doing this peel to start my regular regular regi again? I did it on my arms legs and face.

Keep your regi simple the next couple days then once you see your skin is back to normal your fine to go back to your regular routine. It should be fine by day 3, depending on the % you used. @CaramelCoffee

I’m still in the exfoliating process. I fear I have overexfoliated so I’m being gentle on my skin especially the darkness around my mouth which was the most irritated. I haven’t seen any drastic change so far which disappoint me I still have “strawberry”
Legs and dark knees and elbow. Will this
Only go away with lightening cream?

Going to exfoliate for another month and use a lightening cream ONLY on areas of hyperpigmentation. Hopefully this will even me up more so I can have somewhat of a consistent tone so I can bleach.

Yes girl the struggle is real, I'm using mequinol 40% and kojic acid 10% (with sepiwhite) ... I see progress but I feel like it's still going so slow .. I'd love to be the goal tone you're talking about too. what shawtykid said is tempting but i'd hate to get stretchmarks... be careful
