Hi,

I've been using monobenzone, which has been working great for me. I found a seller that offers between 5% - 100%. I've only been using the 20% on my face for 5 weeks and I've gotten 3 shades lighter.

Here's the website - ****************

If you want a 10% discount just mention Kellie referred you.

Now, I'm not going to lie for anyone who doesn't know, monobenzone and hydroquinone have been proven to be very unhealthy with prolonged usaged. I discussed this with my doctor before even using it and I wouldn't advise anyone to use it for years and years etc.

However, I have found another company that will be releasing a permanent, safe and NATURAL product at the end of the year, so I'm simply using the monobenzone until that time. So far it has yielded the results I wanted so I'm using it until the natural product becomes available.

Now, does anyone know anything about permanent fake eye lashes? I get the temporary ones but I'm tired of re-doing them every 6 weeks, are there any permanent (for life) ones?


Thanks,

Kellie

Hi,

Can you prove this? Why is hydroquinone unhealthy?

Ok, I have heard a lot about monobenzone, isn't it for people who have vitiligo. It doesn't turn your skin white does it?, I know you said that your skin is now 3 shades lighter, how often are did you use the cream to achieve these results , and what about when you get to your desired skin tone?

I just looked on the website this product permanently removes the pigmentation from your skin, sounds a bit risky to me.. I do not want my skin to become white, I just want to lighten it a few shades

I am apprehensive to use hydroquinone on my skin- its been linked to leukemia, liver damage & thyroid disorder. Moreover in animal studies they find that it causes mutations in developing fetuses. In fact the FDA has proposed a ban on the stuff.

Guys, whatever you use, please be safe, but stay clear of L'MAJ Beverly Hills.

Their products are too expensive, USELESS and their customer service rep Janet is very abusive.

Nur76 is a scam too! Their ebay ads list so called 'testimonials' but if you read them, they all refer to rapid shipping & delivery! Other than showing clearly faked before & afters (claiming that it took 4 weeks to turn a brownn person chalk white
) & people grinning & holding their package, they have no evidence their product does what it claims to (read the claims carefully: they are vague at best!). They do NOT list their 'magic ingredient'. The ones they do list are not able to bleach skin dramatically like they claim. I'd rather stick to known & scientifically proven products like HQ (I am now using the HQ 10% for a few days so it is too soon to tell you anything) , tretinoin 0.1% or mono. If used according to directions & not abused, they work & they are safe. Sure, in large doses over prolonged periods they can theoretically make you ill BUT they are nowhere near as risky as lets say eating fast food regularly & not even close to the risks of even second hand smoke exposure!

If you follow their link above, you'll see that they never tell you what is in their product!

I'm not completely familiar with many of the products listed here, but I want to remind everyone to be very careful with lightening products! Dark spots can be caused by many different factors, and can be topical or very deep within the skin...so BEWARE of companies that make any claims whatsoever about lightening your skin. I've found that if they make promises...RUN AWAY!
I think the key is to stick with a reputable company, and stick to the recommend regimen. It can take months before you start to notice a difference. My favorite brand is Dermalogica...their ChromaWhite TRx line is for skin lightening, and I've seen it to great things.

yes, except for monobenzone. Mono results are permanent.

I've just ordered the mono 20% & I'm eager to get it & post about any results. I am very suspicious about all the claims being made of people who were sooo damaged by these creams. Actually, he evidence for these claims & horror stories is scanty. The damaged people I've seen have abused (not used) the products! WATER can kill you ( by dangerously diluting your blood) is consumed to excess in one shot! I have seen way too many celebs who have become dramatically lighter over the years (think Tina Turner) w/o damaging themselves. I wonder if the white dominated medical profession has an ulterior motive in trying to make brown and black skinned people fear even trying to lighten (maintaining white exclusiveness). That being said, I know what I want & I'm going for it!
