Hey everyone so I’ve been using Carowhite the past few days around my mouth and eye area where I already had hyperpigmentation and I’m not sure if I’m just not paranoid or if those areas got darker!!! Or if my cheek hypopigmentation just got worse. Is it possible that the Carowhite has darkened me in those areas and will I eventually drop shades? Or am I just paranoid and it’s something else? Please help

Your not paranoid, CW has been known to darken people as oppose to lightening them. Sometimes the high HQ content can be to harsh on the skin which causes the darkening.

If I stop using it will my skin bounce back? I wanna replace it with nadinola or something omg what do i do to get it back to normal @brown2light
You have to stop using it, and give your skin some time to get back to normal, then replace it with something that has a lower HQ content.

Have a search around the forum to see what cream could work best for you. Are you looking for a cream just for your face or whole body?
If it's for face then yes Nadinola is a good choice, I've read a lot of positive reviews about it. If you need a cream for all over I would suggest clear essence range that has 2% HQ and works really well, I had a friend that used it back in the day and her skin was so clear and clean.

I haven't been on here for almost a year. I've been so caught up with life that I completely stopped my skincare routine and started focusing on other things. However, this was probably good for me as I've matured enough to lighten responsibly. When I was on this forum a while ago, my main focus was becoming lightskinned (I wanted to look mixed, I was whitewashed). I also had skin dysmorphia problems so I'm glad I got my ish together.
So i'm now ready to start a new journey. My goal is to go from brownskin, to "lighter" brownskin. Nothing more then 4 shades lightened. :yess: Lol not much of a change but I love my brown skin now, I just want to be a more light caramel tone. I also want to get rid of dark spots and uneven skin tone. I'm also making other lifestyle changes along with lightening my skin, (Weight gain, Beauty Routine, Be Happier, etc.). I will do consistent updates on all of that in this forum! Now onto my goals lol.

Current Shade:







Goal Shade:
Somewhere around Trina/Lauren London/Aaliyah Jay complexion. Caramel brown. (can someone give me a mac shade?)

Do ya'll think this is attainable? I also don't have a regi made yet, so if anyone could help me formulate one that works quickly and strongly that would be great. Thank you!

Hi hun. If it's easy to maintain why did you move to another regime/product to lighten again?

He couldn’t find the lemonvate gel at the time. I believe the best way to use steroids is with tretinoin, skin building, taking regular breaks and sun avoidance
