You guys have GOT to see this woman. She is not some nut, but a Dr. of psych well known in the USA. She generously shares her post bleaching photos (very natural & beautiful) AND the method (& sources) she used for her mono & the oil she mixed it with for viscuosity & moisturization.

How to be a ***** with Style | Forms

She advises taking one tube (1 1/2 oz) of 20% mono & mixing it in the blender with 8oz of the Almond Glow (google for source or get it from her article). You store it in a bottle & shake well to reblend before using. She used it once/day after a shower & on still wet skin. After 5 mins or so, you apply your sunscreen & your makeup. She successfully & evenly depigmented in 18 months only! She suggests trying it 2x/day to speed results. I plan to go with once/day as mono is strong & I don't want to risk screwing up my skin. If they delete the link, please PM me & I'll share it with all who inquire. You really need to read this woman's account. She even includes direct contact info. Let me know what you think!

Vikki Ashley use to have vitiligo, when you use mono/benoquin on normal skin, it will give you patches of white skin. Eventualy your whole skin turns white. I tried mono but i had to stop using it it gave me a rash and uneven skin. It gave me lighter patches around my mouth, so i got scared.

Were you mixing it & using it the way Vikki Ashley reccomends or applying it straight from the tube?

Not everything works for everyone & that is true for everything from antibiotics to vitamins. What did you use instead of the mono? Is it working for you?

No i did not mix it, maybe when u use it with the Almond oil it will work.
after this i did not use anything for a while, two weeks ago i started with HQ5% and trenition, i read your post

No results so far, now i've ordered HQ20%. When i was younger my doctor gave me a cream for my eczema, it had 2% HQ in it. This turned my realy light, like a Beyoncecolor, now i have my original color, like Naomi Cambell, it is almost impossible to find products in The Netherlands where i live. I know HQ worked for me when i was younger.
I hope this cream works, i bought it on the net, so i have to wait and see.

Hi, Proscons

You are correct to be wary. this is the reason I am proceeding slowly & carefully instead of just rushing in & smearing on the strongest stuff I can get ahold of!
I am proceeding slowly (& getting real results!) & carefully researching everything out there before choosing. I am more frightened of the mid-overpriced 'whitening creams' with all their vague testimonials talking about 'blemished, bumps, spots & marks'.
These are not dermatological terms & do not describe anything specific. they make implications about skin being 'toned' (what the hell does that even mean?) or 'brightened'. The creams come in small jars with a money back guarantee BUT you need to go through 8 jars to see a so-called 'result' & then the guarantee is void because you repurchased the product!


MEDICINAL products, on the other hand, have a proven track record decades long. They tell you precisely what the product is designed to do, roughly how long it takes, what safety precautions to take & what potential side effects to watch for. People who buy randon creams do not get this info. They mistakenly think that redness & burning are signs that the product is working so they slap on more. Not smart! These are typical signs of an adverse reaction: signs to discontinue use & speak to the doctor. Keep your cautious approach & you'll keep your face!
