Hi, i said i would find some pics to post so here you go.

the first pic is when i was using my 20% HQ compound in the first few days - it irritated my skin so you can see how 'two tone' it was. my darker skin began to peel away.

after refining my compounding skills
and using 10% and arbutin 10% i was able to achieve a more uniform even tone. as you can also see my lips are much darker at the moment.

Once i achieve my desired tone, then i will post more pics. sorry about the blurriness it was due to cropping/enlarging.

What do you think?

OMG! How did you possibly go that far? That kind of progress would give me NorthernAsian skin rather than SE Asian. OMG!

@goddess - lol x

Thanks for all the comments guys, im glad u like it. Just have the other odd parts of my body that need to catch up! I dont really need to use that much make up now as well and yes my skin has the soft glow.

For those who wanted to know when I started, it was back in June. Thats when the pic was taken.

Here are the details of what i use for those of you who wanna know:

HQ Compound 10%
Arbutin Compound 10%
Glycolic Acid Lotion 10% (for face) and 20% (for body)
Differin (just got it)
Retina (hardly use it now, cos I have Differin and Glycolic)
AHA Cleanser (+ Salicylic/Lactic acid)
AHA Toner
SPF50 Sun lotion (Nivea)
SPF15 Lipbalm
Liquorice Soap (just got it)

I cleanse with the AHA cleanser and toner every day as I have oily yet sensitive skin. This helps refine pores and stop acne, because I apply the oily like HQ compound every day.

@#*!£&% hard work, i tell you!
