Hi, well firstly im a boy im 17 and for some reason I have alot of uneven patches of skin on my face, I hate it because its really noticable and although people dont say anything, I know there looking/staring, so I just wanted to ask what would be the best skin lightening cream for me too use ?
I am willing to pay anything as long as it works effectivley, I dont know anything about skin lightening creams, So I dont have a clue what the best thing on the market is, I've searched the creams alot but I dont know what too buy or what gives the best results........ also if I did buy it, how would I apply it too my face....would I put it just on the uneven patches or just apply it too the whole of my face in the monring and at night ?`

I know theres another post like this but after reading It no one was really very specific about which one should and is the best too use so......

I posted a thread about what is actually working for me. It is long, so many people opened it & probably read a little, but only one person read the entire post & responded. I am going into my 2nd week of the regimen I described & I am very satisfied so far. People seem to buy into products that come in fancy packages or have flashy websites & photoshopped 'testimonials'. What I am using is part of a very discreet Canadian skin care line. They do not make crazy claims about how their magic cream will make you rich, successfull & popular (like the Fair & Lovely ads do). They do not coerce you or humiliate you into buying their product. THey tell you what it contains, how big it is & wjat it is used to treat. Point final! No model who was white as paper to begin with lying about how dark she used to be....no bullshit. I know that 2 weeks have passed & I need to buy foundation that is a shade lighter. I've gome from Maybelline dream matte mousse in Dark2 to Dark1 (in 1 weeks flat!) & I do not have that fake bleachy sickly yellow tone. My colour looks natural.

There's only one cream that i could think of that will work for your problem, Gluta-C skin whitening cream, you can buy it from funkymommydotnet
It's the only cream that actually work for my problem skin (scars, spots etc..etc), it may work on you too. Oh, i just found out that it is FDA REgistered now, that should put us at ease a bit. Goodlcuk!

If you PM me, I'll gladly share my sources & what I'm using. I am very happy with my results & my skin is fading. It seems to 'cycle': fading rapidly at some points, then stopping & fading more. For a while, I was 'stuck' at one shade & was not lightening. All of a sudden I began getting results again. When I began lightening, I was dark enough to wear Maybelline dream matte liquid mousse in Dark 2. I went from there to a Dark 1 quite rapidly. It took time, but then it was Dark 0. Last week, I had a makeup artist match my colour for me. My face matches a Medium 4! Thicker skin areas fade more slowly. Here's what I used:

HQ 4% on one day & Tretinoin 0.1% the next. My source, I got from La Donna, is reliable & quick & cheap. This is great since it takes a lot of product to do the entire body. I recently got some HQ10% but it is too soon for me to say whether the stuff is working. I have also ordered some momo 20% but it has yet to get here. Of course, I'll report any progress.

i have been using 'Fairness Lightening Soap' for a couple of years now ,and its excellent and does NOT contain hydroquinone. i bought it on the internet but not sure from where,and not needed to buy more as yet as it lasts forever,and i did buy 4 at the time.

i also find 'Gatineau White Plan Cream'to be very good athough its rather expensive.

The Gatineau line is so grossly overpriced & comes in small container that by the time you saw lightening, you'd be seeing a bankruptcy consultant! they can charge a mint because they are a French Parisian brand. They are selling the 'cachet' of France. If they were in Mexico making the exact same product, it would cost less than half of what it does.

Hi Ondine,

I realised you said that LaDonna wasn't coming on the site for a while, so I was wondering whether you could PM me the details of the private seller for the 15ml/g tube of 4%HQ also the Retinol your using? I would like to follow the same regime as you guys and see whther it does anything for my skin. I know that each product is different, and what works for one persons skin may not work for someone else, so it's all about trial and error, basically just use something and see whether it works or not.

I have tried Diana Stalder, it is expensive for me though, and didn't work for me, nor do Ayurvedics No Marks and Fair and Lovely or Snow. So enough of those, I was hoping to get serious and use HQ, the stuff thats been used for decades. Safely of course, I'm not gonna abuse its use, so please pass me the seller details, im in the UK though. Thank you very much! and i'm glad to hear of your success.

Mia

High prices are another deceptive tool. People think that if it costs that much for so little, it must be really good. National origin has the same effect. People hear France or Switzerland and assume the product must be a good one. Don't be a dupe! I don't care how many placentas, foreskins or spoonfuls of caviar a cream claims to have in it. If you need a bank loan to buy it, it is a SCAM!

I can pm you the information if you want it, because it is forbidden to post them directly here.

Hi,
I am fair skinned and have some pigmentation on my forehead and outer eye region due to pregnancies/sun etc etc.
i want to do something to get rid of it, but am not sure if the suggestions that I read on the website here are more suitable for people seeking an all over skin lightening rather than the reasonably small areas that i am concerned about on my face.
My M-I-L has given me some stieva-A (tretinoin 0.05%) to use - can anyone tell me if this is suitable for pigmentation,or suggest alternatives ?
Would appreciate any help with this!!!
