For my hands I use g&g layered on LA by night and DIY vitamin c serum + moisturizer AM & this works well for me. I'm trying to avoid HQ on my hands coz I don't want to risk dark knuckles.
I use Peau jaune on my feet though & no issues there whatsoever...
@chocowhite i dont get Why g&g aint in the uk no more or most Mitchellbrands products. They are natural but they don鈥檛 sell them here

Are Paks trustworthy? do you get them from paks online or the store? bcos they have some mitchelBrands stuff that don't sell on amazon in the UK but idk about if i can trust paks lol
Members here have been ordering from Paks for years. I have not so I can't say I have experience, but they seem legit.

Hey lovelies, sorry for not posting for these past few weeks, chile life goes so fast when you're busy. Anyway here's my official 3 months update:

Last week I went out with my friends and when I tell you my skin was looking so bomb 馃槏 I got so many compliments about my skin, & as usual I couldn't stop taking mirror selfies y'all lol.

Currently I think I'm at a fenty 330 in natural light, at night with fluorescent lighting my skin looks pale/very light. My brown shades rarely show through & when it does it's a light brown - I think I'm content with this for now. I can already tell if I push it any further my skin will thin out & I'll start to look unnatural. A quick review of the pros & cons I've had so far:

PROS
I've definitely gotten lighter which was one of my major goals while starting this regimen. My butt & privates have lightened (the latter was inadvertent though 馃拃)
The lightening was slow and steady in the first month, I felt like the lightening started becoming noticeable after week 4/5 thereabouts
This cream is a great lightener especially if you're looking for more yellow in your skin, it's definitely a good one for that yellowy summer glow. A great hq alternative if you're looking to escape the orangey tint from Carowhite
So far most of the reviews I've seen don't recommend using the lotion on the face, however I've used it because I couldn't find the face cream. Fortunately I've had no issues at all, important side note though:- On alternate days I use rA and vitamin c for skin building, maybe that's what helped keep my skin at bay. I'd recommend to do a patch test to see how it goes before attempting to use it on your face
It has a great smell and it's quite easy to spread - this I think is important for both busy and lazy people & I'm both 馃槢

CONS
Yellowing of palms is real with this lotion. I used gloves while applying it but somehow I've still ended up with stained palms/nails. It's not really bad after I started using gloves but I can still tell the difference because on a normal day they're very pale/pink.
For whatever reason this lotion doesn't have an inner cap - it got a bit difficult to control how much lotion comes out of the bottle while applying. For this you can transfer it to a pump bottle/a different bottle of preference
In month 2, I noticed my folded areas were starting to look red out of the shower ie armpits, groin etc. I concluded that it was the fruity acids from the lotion, so I reduced my LA lotion from 12% to 10% and my skin could tolerate this concentration. If you decide to copy my regimen, closely monitor your skin & adjust your LA/GA to your skin's tolerance. & Definitely don't skip skin building days 馃挏
This lotion has a high HQ concentration & I wouldn't recommend using it if your skin is not properly exfoliated, otherwise the lightening will be uneven. I haven't used it on my knuckles, I was too scared to try it there. G&g works perfectly for me & hey don't fix it if it ain't broke.

The big deal for me now is maintenance. I'm currently tapering down Peau Jaune to switch to a KA/LA regimen for my HQ break, which I want to last around 4/6 weeks depending on how it goes. I was using Peau Jaune 4 times a week, this week I've applied it thrice, next week I'll apply it twice and hopefully by the other week I'll be hQ free.

I'll keep on sending updates here during my hq break. Hopefully it all goes as planned馃槉馃

Yeah I've noticed so far it's only the African members who have access to g&g cream, maybe they have a new formulation that's under review. And so far it's only the cream that's resurfaced - the lotion, oil, soap are still not available here.

As for Mitchellbrands I too am confused 馃

I'm a sucker for yummy smelling goodies, maybe I should hunt for the soap when I hop back onto hQ after my break. If I find it, I may or may not have a bite in the shower is all I'm saying

Thanks for the update @chocowhite I will definitely be looking out for this lotion/cream whenever I am able to get to my African market! I hate that they have gotten rid of HQ over the counter here in the states.

@chocowhite is this your shade? If yes, what were you before starting your journey
Yes this is more or less my shade- though this looks paler, and I鈥檓 a bit yellower. Probably it鈥檚 the difference in undertones.
My before peau jaune is in the first post, & way before I started using lighteners is in this post 馃憞馃徑
