Hello my beautiful peeps😊
I’ve done lots of research on Peau Jaune - I’ve seen lots of nice reviews so I decided to give it a try. I’ve decided to create a thread where I can post my full regimen, updates, results and my 2 cents about this line, so here goes:
My current shade
I’ve been using the new G&g (pink lid) for a while (approximately 10 months now) I added clinic clear oil around Mar/April for a hq boost and I got fairly good results. I started at around fenty 400 and currently I’m around fenty 360, I don’t wear makeup so I’m using the models on the fenty website as my reference. I dropped the clinic clear oil and have been hq free for 2 months now with mrG only and ready to hop back to hq.
My goal shade
Currently I’m more pale than golden, so for one I’m trying to add some more yellow to my skin - apparently peau jaune gives a nice yellow tone from most of the reviews. I’m also trying to move up a shade or two: I still look brown in some lighting and tbh I wanna look light everywhere if that makes sense. I’m not in any hurry though as even my current shade is quite light. An even fenty 310 would be nice, I know I can get there with time and patience. Destin Conrad is my ultimate goal shade (I got there with dodo in 2019 it was crazy lmaooo but that’s a different story altogether)
Peau Jaune line is from Cameroun - most african products are usually sus but this line has great reviews so far. It doesn’t list HQ in its ingredients but is known to have HQ at a higher percentage which is why I decided to give it a try (My skin doesn’t lighten significantly with anything below 4%) I bought the Peau Jaune 500ml lotion and the stage 2 serum, both from my local BSS. The lotion cost me 15$ and the serum 8$. I was unable to find both the jar cream and the small face cream. Below are the photos and ingredients of each:
These products haven’t listed HQ in their ingredients but are known to have a high % of HQ (above 4%)
My regimen will be mostly LA + HQ based with a little kA here and there. I want to keep my regimen as simple as possible coz honestly I’m too lazy to layer different products (which is the most advisable method if you’re using different products)
- I use my kojie san soap 3x a week (I alternate days) and I leave it on for no more than 10mins for my body and 5mins for my face. I typically shower once a day at night. Rest of the days I use my creamy jamaa soap (it’s a local moisturising soap)
- For my body, I’ve mixed in half of stage 2 Peau Jaune serum to 500ml of Peau jaune lotion. I‘ll use this lotion mix once a day at night immediately after showering. Then in the morning I’ll moisturise with my DIY 12% LA lotion on top (yes, I lotion up without showering 😛) I feel showering again in the morning washes away the product and i’m too lazy to layer both at night. I’ll do this for 2 consecutive nights then on the 3rd night I‘ll use my g&g cream pink lid in place of peau jaune (I don’t want to completely eliminate mrG from my regi).
Since I wasn’t able to find the face cream from the Peau Jaune line, I’m planning to spot test the lotion by itself on my face and see how it goes but for now my main facial lightener remains Precious cream from Mitchellbrands
- after 3 days of skin lightening I’ll skin build on the 4th day with a body mix made with shea butter and glycerine. I use retinA and DIY vitamin C serum on moisture days for my face
I’m currently taking 1000mg per day of vitamin C and Omega 3 fish oil both from Quest
I use bananaboat SPF 50 but I still cover up with long sleeves and I hop from shade to shade whenever I have to be out in the sun for long.
That about sums it up, I’m super excited for this regimen! Planning to go with this for 3 or 4 months inshAllah then I’ll take another HQ break. Will post updates of how it’s going now and then.
Fingers crossed 🤞🏽
