Someone on here mix skin light and caro white together with some serum and got result . I would say just one out of the two and make the 12% aha lotion with it . Only use the mix on the darkest part. Now for the rest body just use 15 % aha lotion 3 times a week and use face lemonvate 2 times a week. We can maintain with 3 times while darkest parts catch up . I would say be carful with kit , it gave me pih so I just exfoliate with aha lotion instead
Thank you! Will try this on my legs as they’re very stubborn

I thought I’d give update on my progress for people who are also thinking of using skin light or lurkers.
It’s been 4 weeks since i started . I saw slight peeling on my stomach. In a very small section there is a deep peel where the skin underneath is much lighter. However the rest of my stomach is slightly flaking (not much).


I mixed skinlight w lactic acid to use on the arms (not sure of the strength but I added 2 1/2 teaspoons, to the remaining jar as it was nearly finished) , I only started this on Wednesday night. I have yet to see an improvement.


I’ll probably update this in 2 weeks or if I see a change before then.

Also wanted to note if I seem slightly frustrated it’s because I have a deadline of June 21st and I don’t feel that I’ve lightened much since I started. My mum says I’ve come a long way but I really don’t think so in terms of my body. My hands, back, bum, chest and face are coming along nicely but i don’t use skinlight on those. Rest of my body is still dark.
One more thing, I’m the kind of person that doesn’t notice changed unless they are very drastic so until my body is significantly lighter it will still look as dark as before to me!

Okay, so I’ve decided to buy Caro light oil to mix with skinlight . As I don’t have another month to waste observing whether the cream works or not. A user on here aimingatzoe said she had stubborn skin (like mine) and it worked for her after , similarly to me, extreme glow didn’t work for her. I’ll update you guys!

lots of flaking on stomach in shower, scraped dead skin off with finger. However it doesn't look much lighter yet.

Using LA/Skinlight mix and top of arms are peeling to reveal lighter skin underneath.

Will update accordingly (Haven't done the CL oil/ Skinlight mix yet btw).

Upper outer arm looks a shade lighter, I tested by using my old foundation and swatching it on my arm. Last month although the foundation was too dark also, it blended in more on my arms. Today I can see a more stark contrast.

inner thighs flaking (not much but they’ve NEVER flaked before even when I did 60% peel)
I started the CL oil/ SL mix yesterday night

To lighten the face . I seem to be doing it now. Even in the summer time in the sun you might turn back dark again maybe after 3 months even with sunscreen. You should always wear sunscreen lotion. Ok, buy some Clean and Clear acne skin toner which is red or blue. Apply it on the area you want to lighten and buy a skin lightener and apply it over top of the clean and clear. You might choose to use another toner. I use Clean and Clear. I use this bleach cream called Dr. Fred Summet. It is a wax and I am seeing great lightening results. It will not work without the clean and clear because it is strong and will or might turn your face very red. I first couldn't for 3 days with out my face turning red. Now, I've used it for 3 weeks with no problem. Your face might turn light reddish witch is the breaking up of dark pigments. You might want to use a vanishing skin lightener or bleaching cream. If you decide to use Dr. Fred Summit, witch you should use a Clean and clear or an other skin toner first so that it could get in to the skin and work, if you use Dr. Fred Summit, you should wipe it off with a *** paper towl before washing your face. I save my store advertisement or news papers to use to wipe it off. But, don't use your news papers like I do. I might be infected or has some colorful ink. I have Malasma and it is taking a little longer to lighten those areas on both cheeks. I am applying it over my whole but you should just apply it in dark spots. I've used the before 30 yours ago and it made my face very light and I got dark from being out in the sun. I didn't know much about sun screen lotion. Don't use too much or for a long period of time because you might get a little lighter than you've expected.
Thank you! Will try this when my body catches up

Stomach is getting lighter but in patches. I can tell because TMI inside my belly button looks darker in comparison to the skin on my stomach . (This is probably a sign I should rub the cream in my belly button too lol!)

Overall body looks more yellower (this is a good thing) can’t pinpoint an overall shade change just yet

Did an LA peel (50%) on my arms, moisturised for 2 days with whipped evoo and Shea butter then used skin light mix. Had a sea salt bath and lighter patches on arm are much bigger. Still ways to go but I can see my permatan is beginning to lift. I’ve been off acids since last Friday to give my skin a break (other than that la peel on arms) soon I may occlude arms w la lotion and SL mix to really blast through my arms.

hope you guys find these Updates helpful

In case any of you were thinking of occluding w SL and LA lotion , it doesn’t work . I’ve been occluding for 1.5hrs (usually I would get peeling in the first 30 mins using EG and la lotion ) . I remember when I mixed SL with lactic acid and occluded for 3 hrs and that didn’t really do anything either. I suspect it might be the vaseline in the formula that inhibits fast action deep penetration but this is just a theory! I’m still occluding , I’ll give it another few hours but I’m doubtful.
UPDATE: after 3.5 hrs I removed and no dead skin came off my arm just feels very soft .

Before anyone says look at the old skinlight threads, I have. Yet my question hasn't really been answered. Prior to skinlight I was using extreme glow (2x a day) and la lotion (at night) w Kojie San (2x a day) and sea salt baths and la peel for 3 months and I noticed no change in colour only softer skin. I heard lots of good things about skinlight so I bought two tubs and have been using it alongside la lotion and Kojie San with my KIT and sea salt baths and peels. It's been 18 days and half the jar is finished but I see little to no improvement yet. How long should it take or should I give it to see results?

I'm getting a lil frustrated and my face, chest, hands and feet are light (due to extreme glow and other stuff not from SL) but the rest of my body is still dark and summer is coming. I've got a deadline of June so three months to go. Is this normal? I know ppl may say I should give it a month but half the jar is finished so I would've thought I would be seeing something by now. I don't have any trouble exfoliating I peel and see skin come off but I never see any actual lightening. I can't get RA so don't suggest that pls. Btw I do wear sunscreen and keep my arms and legs covered at all times. Thanks
Why did you stop using Extreme glow?

You have to occlude more than 3.5 hours , most people occlude from morning to evening or from night to morning plus everyone skin different so you got be patient. I mix skin light +glycolic acid+ 2 ka serum , in 1 white my skin starts to peel without occluding

Update: put my arms next to my sisters and mine are lighter! Two weeks ago when I was comparing, mine were still darker (I think around the time I started this thread). Stomach lightening well too but still lighter patches I can tell that skin underneath top layer is much lighter . I just need it to budge so it can all be that colour.
Thighs and legs are lightening but hella slow they’re still dark .upper part of outside thigh peels frequently
Though.

My hands pretty much match my face , but I’m tryna lighten my knuckles. They’re not terrible but they are darker (they always have been) and when I get lighter I don’t want ppl to use that as ‘ammo’.

I never mention my butt /back Cos I use different products on those as the hyperpigmentation was extreme and like jet black (not anymore thank god)
