Wanna see the stash;)
@Mazikeen do you shop there or ever go in? Have one near you? It’s worth checking out. I learned they stock shelves based on area demographics, so if you have any near you or know several locations, try a few of them as each carry different products. You know I am a sucker when it comes to stores, and when I went to London I thought ok, I will pop in and see what they had to offer......the other thing they had were nice sunscreens. I stocked up on a few of them. I love European SS, any chance I can get them and take them home rather then order online and pay shipping, I’m all over it!! I’m now in Holland so I will have my eyes open on what they have to offer here as well :thumbsup: so far all I’ve stocked up on are stroopwaffles :eek:

I was just in London, I didn’t look for Caro White but I was impressed with the products you can find in Boots. Have you looked there for it @Nadra
@gymrat Boots is more like the equivalent of CVS and Sephora, they do really good skincare and make up but the most you'll find for lightening is Amlactin and hyaluronic acid creams so no carolight or F&W, they do stock afro hair products and palmers in their bigger stores though! @shawtykid20 would you agree? But if you got any goodies we'd like to see :D

Honestly......those coffee shops that people talk about do exist but NOTHING like the perception that people have. Its so much more than that.....its the 5th safest city in the world, if that tells you anything. Its absolutely beautiful @Mazikeen its something you need to put on your bucket list, even if you only visit once. As for London, its like any big city in the states, times 10. I’ve been to majority of big cities in the states none quite like London, if your into fashion go, otherwise skip.....But Amsterdam for sure put on your list!!

Ummmm Boots is closer to a glorified Ulta, nothing like a Sephora, kinda similar to CVS minus the makeup, but definitely more like an Ulta but with European flare. Like I said I was impressed with the selection, but each one I went into varied on products. Had great SS.

Those in Amsterdam I walked by a shop today loaded with skin lightening products! Even took a picture of the street so I wouldn’t forget it :yess:

@Nadra yeah that is true, it’s more like night cream products

Hahaha that's so random i was gonna say ULTA but we don't have Ulta here, depends which Boots you go into tho Oxford Street for sure! I looove boots although it can be a bit expensive! We have another one called Superdrug which is a little cheaper. Glad you like the shopping here too :D

yayyy ive just received my order from Mitchel brand - so those gels are just for my body - ive stacked up so i wont need to be looking in London anytime soon lol

The lemonvate cream gel texture is bomb ! first time taking that one , i always used to take the gel
How do you mixed these gel for your body?

Also does it give even lightening?
i dont really mix , i prefer layering a little goes a long way . i layer with with clarissime body lotion or ikb lotion, or i apply my glycolic acid cream then i layer a gel .
if i do mix , i do it in the palm of my hand .

im living my best life , im looking naturally light or light brown , some would say light skin , some light brown - my foundation is NC 43 , i use studio tech .
i got a nose job , got my teeth lined up , acne cleared , im finally becoming the person i always envisioned to be !
and for the haters ( from other blogs) , my nose job is awesome , i still have a " black" nose , i am a proud black person , i just wanted a more defined nose. Black people comes in all shades naturally , i just prefer being a lighter shade of black it goes with my features better , but i am proud !
Moving to London where nobody knows me will be a breath of fresh air !! i will try to get to Nc 40 haha ...
