Hello. I was just wondering. Has anyone ever tried rare extracts body bleach serum and what were the results? I know the website says it takes a while and the testimonials are from people who've used it for well over 3months, so I was just wondering if it is a waste of time. What if I buy something from skin actives to add to it, any idea what would be a great idea to speed up the process? Im just really interested in this product because it promises permanent results and I dont want to pass that up.

I also came across DS Surely white. Does that work? By the way, Im a brown skinned African American....for effectiveness purposes only. THank you

I've heard nothing but bad things about bodybleach
Dont mean to be a bother but could you please elaborate on that. To be honest, it sounded good because it was cheap and promised permanent results so I purchased it. I used it for about a week and a half and I noticed my skin darkening gradually, but I wanted so bad to give it a chance and told myself I would stick to it for the long term results. From years of using hydroquinone mixed with clobetasol(really strong stuff by the way I got from an African store), I developed these red spots in between my thighs and last summer I burned the underside of my forearms from placing them on leather interior of my car and not having A/C. Just this summer, I wore different designer corsettes a lot and started to notice red patches under my arm right above my armpits from the edge of the corsette rubbing against them. Anyways, after my first application or second of Rare Extracts body bleach, I started to notice they all smoothed out(these red spots either had little tiny red bumps on them or just plain blotchy skin by the way). Anyways, in addition to them smoothing out, they turned completely and uniformly dark brown. I was a little scared but then I convinced myself that it was part of the process and it simply brought the scar/patches to the surface in order to fully bleach it out. Yesterday, I couldnt take it anymore because I didnt get not even one shade lighter and I have a boyfriend who would probably start to ask questions if I just get that dark. Cant blame everything on the sun...lol....so I whimped out and stopped and returned to using the products I purchased off skin-whitening-product dot com. That seemed to work. Have you had any experiences with that one? Needless to say, just yesterday I purchased even more bottles from Rare extracts. Im not sure what to do with it now cause I stopped using it. I was thinking maybe if I purchased some ingredients off skin actives(after reading up on each one of course and how it reacts to the other ingredients) and mixed it with the rare extracts and use it during the day and something I know works with Vitamin C at night, it will yield great results. What do you use, if any and find to be working on you? If you dont mind me asking, what is your race, so I could know if it could benefit me as well? Anyone heard about this lady called marvyene? She supposed to be selling some whitening products that give results in 5-7 days.....

Pls anyone can get involved in this conversation and answer any of the questions or leave relevant feedbacks. I am an engineer and Im quite good and figuring things out so with the help of you guys, if we put our minds together, Im confident we can find something that works and is safe.

Blackgoddesss, you really should elaborate when you say a product doesn't work. Stating why it doesn't work is really insightful and informative.

I am not well versed in skin lightening as it's not a personal interest of mine, but I do know that Hydroquinone, Azelaic Acid, Kojic Acid, and Retinoic Acid are the best lighteners. You should make sure that they appear close to the start or middle of the ingredients list on the product since they are listed in order of composition with the first ingredients in the highest concentration.

Botanicals, Licorice root extract, melatonin, and other similar products just simply don't work because they don't inhibit tyrosinase from forming.

I didn't say it doesn't work. I just said I've heard nothing but bad reviews. There are several skin lightening forums on the web and almost everyone says that the Body Bleach stuff is a waste. But I've never tried it personally.

Cuteashell85 I think its important that if the products are making your skin worse, to quit using them.

Also, don't mix two products, because they may have ingredients which are reactive to each other and this might make your skin worse!

Good luck.

I have used this product during 3 weeks. It have no effect on my skin. (I didn't see results within 3-7 day as advertise say).

I left it because I wouldn't that somebody see me too dark.

It has L-Cysteine in his recipe (precursor of glutathion), then perhaps it works for some kind of skin or it's not too potent for me.

Now, I look for a product which lightning/whitening without painful or darker nails.

I used it, with high expectations. It did nothing for me, except maybe, maybe make me darker maybe. it was some time ago, but I still know it did crap. If you want to know what will probably help, it stinks and probably cause acne. Take milk and leave it outside for a few days, and it will curdle up and if you use this, you will get lighter, it is not permanent or anything cause you will get tanned if you go out in the sun. But it works waaaaayyyyyyy better than this, cuteashell this will probably get rid of the dark underarms marks. More potent skin lightener are HQ, alpha arbutin, mequinol. Don't tough monobenzene.

i have plenty of rare extract body bleach and have actually used it on my bieu and he unbeknownst to him has experience lightening - becuase believe me you he CANNOT get any darker. this is the only product that didn't burn or harm me in any way but it did have a pecuiliar smell like the f &F does but something like yu could get used too. its very subtle. it totally evened me out and that seweed soap does have thinning properties. ima test it for 28 days and let you know my tru findings

Yup smelled like cigarettes and made me darker. Worst load of a crap I ever bought and I bought some things. I was on hypercreme which made me 3 shades ligher and this darkened me literally overnight back to my original complexion. Awful! To add hypercrme switched formulas and for the worst that too is now useless.

Thanks for the reviews I was looking for something cheap since my limit for using HQ is coming up. I guess I need to keep looking.

leochris, I am using this, it is working for me. I was a medium brown complexion and now i am getting caramel. Its been like amonth and a half. I use it with tha seaweed soap one day and koji san alternating. After a month my face and arms started to peel and pink/bright and light skin was revealed. Do take something that would help with skin thinning, it has an exfoliative effect, a little bit. I belive they have improved thier formula. They offer a free 2 ounce sample, try it out!
