Well it’s been nice all...... I’ve been thriving for a lightening regimen that can combat my rough tough to lighten man skin, and I have finally found what works for me. Well first off let me say that on March 9th, I indulged in a powerful carowhite mix. My carowhite mix consisted of Citro Light cream, Dodo cream, Caro Light cream , 2 Neoprosone Gels, 2 Labidjanese carrot tubes, and 1 Carowhite oil.
Soap that I used: La Bamakoise Tamarind soap and New light Zabon soap together. Left on for 5 minutes 3x a day. My mix lightened me from a NC50 to a NC45 in 1 month of use.

I discontinued that powerful HQ mix because although it made me light, it made my skin have a red undertone, and I think it was because of the high percentage of HQ. Anyways... I took a week break from lightening and wanted to take a more natural/ HQ free regi that is promised to work. So on May 6th, I embarked on a KA and bearberry extract regi. I know I’m going to be yelled at by half of the forum , and I DONT RECOMMEND any of you guys trying this but I used
Face and Body: Dodo lotion, Dodo Oil, Dodo Cream, Bio Claire lotion, Bio Claire Cream, Bio Clair oil, IKB cream , IKB gel, and IKB serum.

Soap: Dodo Soap and La Bamakoise Tamarind soap. Applied 3x a day first week of use , then back to 2x a day for the rest of duration of use.

And let me just tell you, IT WORKS WONDERS.....

I was skeptical to share that I risked using —> Bio Claire <—— because I know how frowned upon the whole line is in this Forum.

My Bio Claire/Dodo/IKB mix took me from a NC45 to a NC35!!! and is giving me a pale/yellowish/milky look.

Things to remember: practice extreme SAP and exfoliate with a Loofah sponge every time you shower. Leave soap on skin for max 3 mins then rinse with cool water. Apply the mix on thick and let the absorption kick in. Use mix 3x a day with week 1 of use, then follow by 2x a day after first week.

PS: I was trying to copy @muse01 mix but after I’ve heard and witnessed some shady things about G&G as of lately, I wanted to try something that has similar ingredients as G&G and Bio Claire was the WINNER. (The ingredients are very similar).

I guess you guys can say I was the Guinea pig for Bio Claire. It’s almost been a month of me using this mix and I’m lightening TREMENDOUSLY and peeling in flakes. However I keep lightening and am going to stop once my 1 month mark hits. In the mean time, please share your input and don’t be afraid to use my mix. Just consider it the same mix as @muse01 , but instead of G&G, I replaced it with Bio Claire.

Please no negative comments. Thanks.

Geez, thats a very drastic change, I'm shocked and impressed. I hope it lasts you. I think you need something to give you a bit of a more natural golden glow. Maybe a carrot oil or some type of bronzing lotion. Can I ask where you purchased your dodo and your bioclaire? And did you exfoliate before you started your regi?

Like you could use a nice light bronzer on top of your lotions when you go out, I think it would elevate and compliment your tone quite nicely

Not going to bash you or anything but would really encourage you to add retin -A to your mix to counteract the steroid effect.

@Lightpapi Have you got any pic of your body, what I have read that it’s when you steroid cream only use them 2 months and then change over or 6 weeks . I can’t exactly remember the time length but it was between 4 or 6 weeks. I used maxi light cream with lemovate steriod cream. It’s lighten me pale yellow. The best tone ever reached

What bronze lotion should I use? Because I’m very pale right now and it looks unnatural.

@shawtykid20 honestly I’m so light right now, I discontinued using my mix. It’s too powerful. Do you have any advice on what I can use to maintain my color but also get the paleness down a notch.?

Maybe you could take off off the bio claire and do dodo mix with ikb lotion gels and serums to maintain.

@Lightpapi just use dodo lotion with the oil and ikb gel. Make sure skin build ever night
@shawtykid20 how have you been doing with lightening? I remember in a recent thread , you said you got darker due to using a fake batch of Carowhite? I personally recommend you using my mix if you want extreme results. However I need a strong sunscreen to protect me from darkening. I’m tired of wearing long sleeves in the day time when I’m out.

@Lightpapi yeah I darkened but it wasn’t the Carolight, I’ve been using that on my lips and it has been lightening. It must of been the maxi white serum . If I had to use steroid mix again I would go to the 1 use before. That worked well on me

Lovely results I'd be careful about the bio claire tho. I dont know much about steroid use is there any way to maintain using such a high % of steroids? I've heard of people using a tube of neprosone or something but something abt bio claire and diva maxitone and things like that always screamed way shadier to me
