ooh!! i guess that bad! :/ been using it off and on sometimes just once a day since september.. but i take 2 days break every week
No 5% is just fine and if you want results and have dark skin you need at least 4% anyway.
I used mine with RA 0.1% at night and vitamin c 20% cream during the day.
I use 2 days in the week just to moisturse my skin with shea butter and this has worked very well for me.

if its you on the profile you do look beautiful,have you lightened the whole of your body,i am new to this
so i dont understand how it actually works,i had big trouble with acne and had really discoloured skin on my face,tried lots of stuff ,finally managed to get rid of the trouble,have you ever used the nu skin products,they are very exclusive but efficient,check
out their tri-phasic white package and let me know if its ok for lightening,you can check the north america site as i think its not
available in europe
no hun thats cassie lol :p but her skin tone there is my starting complexion. a bit light maybe..

can u link me their website?

Hey Xarax,

how are you getting along with your skin light mix? Is it effective? And if you don't mind me asking where do you purchase your glytone from? And also do you mix the three together?

I lightened by 5-6 shades using hq for about 6 months and i weaned myself of hq last month and i have been able to maintain my shade using alternative lightening products.
I have even gotten lighter.
I was unsure of using alternative lightening because i thought they wouldnt be effective enough but if you have the right products it works wonders.
I discovered its best to combine products that have different ingredients for example

In the morning on face
apply a serum that has glycolic acid +mulberry extract
then use a cream that has naciniamide+ vitamin c
At night
cream that has alpha-arbutin+kojic acid and i apply with RA 0.5%

On alternative days i use vitamin c serum instead of the glycolic acid + mulberry serum

For body
In the morning
Vitamin c body cream 20%
In the evening
Carotien lightening body lotion + carotein serum +maxi white serum+ Amlactin/glytone
I apply the AHA lotion first

This worked for me remember i have lightened 5-6 shades past my original colour using hq at 5%
Is your GA/Mulberry extract a DIY serum? If so, what`s the percentage of both and how did you incorporate the mulberry extract?

Hi Utopianbeauty i dont do diy so i buy my products. There are lots of products that use mulberry extract because it more effective than bearberry extract.

The product i use that contains this is Makari serum it has both glycolic acid and mulberry extract and glow-skin also does a very potent serum that contains mulberry extract,beaberry extract and licoqrice its called GS serum i used this at night mixed with my GS xtreme cream. Xtreme has Alpha-arbutin and kojic acid.

As i said before it's best to mix these actives to get the best result this is what works for me.

Glowskin lotions are just as effective as the creams if you have oily skin go for the lotion. I used the vitamin c 20% and boy its so good the xtreme is best used with the gs serum. I havent used the gs ultra day so i cant comment on that.
Your regimen looks very good and i am sure you would get results.
Good luck

How long did you use it for? and where did you purchase the glytone from?
