I know that we talk about a lot of different products, but I am sure that we are all interested to know what everyone is using that is giving you results at the moment.

For me at the moment, I am back using makari. I say "back" , as I used it before but had a bad reaction. I rarely have porblems with my skin, but this product gave me a really bad area of spots aound the base of my nose and on my chin. It gave great lightening but I thought that my skin looked so congested that this wasn't worth me continuing to use it.

I then went back to using it a few months ago and combatted the skin problems by avoiding the areas where I had problems before by using a retin A to help combat any spots. I also use the makari clear acnyl on these areas. Touch wood, this has worked for me and whilst I am loking for something else that gives me lightening results, I will keep up this regime.

Personally because I know that makari can give problems, I would not whole heartedly recommend it, but I know that it does give lightening.

Let us know what is working for you..........

Maharani, may be you ought to give a day or two for answers
. I don't have a 'proper' regimen at the moment. I have this lightening serum by Clear Essence I bought way back, I'm trying to finish it off. Been using this barely a month so can't tell if it is working but I'm not keen, just want to clear it. Also have an almost finished tube of Retin A that I begun using with Obagi products (these worked) earlier this year but when the Obagi's were exhausted, the Retin A went in hiding for a while and I only begun using it recently. I use a soap called Dudu Osun to give me a clear complexion; can't tell if its working or not as its my first bar but my skin looks smooth and even.

Ondine, how can you describe the Mono paste: How do the sources prefering not to use Mono on wet skin expect it to spread: Do you apply sunblock even on areas not exposed? Thanks
Ttee thanks for noting that. As this thread popped up with a recent post, I responded as if the thread starter had just posted. Someone just unearthed it then
