Thanks for your concern .
Your literally saying the things that I already know and that I’m willing to take . I know benoquin KILLS melanin cells and leaves your skin at higher risk of sun damage . As I stated in my first post , I already know the outcome and I’m totally fine with it . You always have to sacrifice something for another thing e.g learning a language - your free time etc . Removing all my pigment I will be only sacrificing my time in the sun ( I hate the sun ) . I don’t live in a hot country / a country where there’s a lot of sun exposure , so the chances of getting a sun burn (which leads to skin cancer ) is very slim .YES , I know you can still get sun exposure even if there’s no visible sun ray . That’s why I use sunscreen everyday .
I’ve already researched the outcome , side effects and usage of monobenzone for several years and compared the pros and cons for what I want MY ideal self to be and the pro’s (for ME ) out weighted the cons .
Anyways have a good day / night 🙂💗
sunscreen is not enough though, sunscreen reduces the chances, it doesn't eradicate them, you're going to be a super high risk for melanoma and you could die from this

unless you plan on being a vampire literally, I wouldn't do this, there is nothing wrong with being darken skin

also, even if your skin becomes white, you're still wouldn't be white, people would see you as someone who had vitiligo or something, if your goal is to be another race, this won't accomplish it but you already knew that.

Thank you once again for telling me the knowledge I already know . If you have come here , in the hope to change my mind then you better go ahead and do something else instead of wasting your time lol 😩✋🏽.
You will not die from not having melanin , I know of a lot of people who have used monobenzone and depigged in hot country and still go about doing normal life wearing tshirts and shorts .
I know I’ll never be of Caucasian descent 😂
Please find someone else’s mind to change because it won’t be mine 😉

I like how my posts are not approved because I’m telling a truth that people dont want read.

whats wrong mr moderator, you’d rather people live in a lie? I made posts about monobenzone and its uses and they were denied simply because it goes agains the “dream” of many people who want to become something they’re not
Are you still mad ? 😂
Please get over it lmfaooo . Why you soo bothered damm . I’m not doing anything to you ?

UPDATE : I’ve decided today to stop applying monobenzone to my face for maybe a week / until my face isn’t peeling . My face isn’t sensitive at all ( I used to use 88% lactic acid on my face just fine ) but my skin has recently started burning when I apply monobenzone ( it’s because of tretinoin)

I might give tretinoin also a break and just continue using 40% mono on my body for a while because tretinoin is really 🔥🔥 .

My skin on my face is much lighter and I’m seeing a few spots wanting to appear on my nose 🥳 and my scar is still whitish /pinkish soo all is good . 😌

how have you been depigmenting? Has it been an even, general lightening for you or are you very spotty. Also I’ve been using mono for the same timeframe as you and I’ve seen NO CHANGE. Is it worth using tretinoin do you think?

I haven’t seen much change either but then again it’s not a quick journery and I’m just going to keep going . I have general lightening and scratche’s stay white/pale/pink instead of dark 😩 . tretinoin Isn’t really doing anything big for me but making my skin SUPER SENSITIVE. I’m going to continue for at least a year and if no progress then I’ll probably stop. It will take us much longer as our body doesn’t have vitiligo but NEVER GIVE UP , I guess😭.

Update : I haven’t really seen any drastic changes
1.During last winter , I spent most of winter ( November - maybe April ) using a hot water bottle on my belly and ended with really bad skin discolouration (my belly basically pitch black 😭😭) , monobenzone and tretinoin has gotten rid of it on my belly which is a pretty big change
2.My skin on my arms have been extremely sensitive I scratched arm the other day and ended up ripping off a large patch of skin 😭 . i also have a lot of scratchs (patches) on my arms . I’m guessing cause of the use of tretinoin .
3.I have confetti spots on my chest . It’s weird because the spots are not pale white but more of a light brown colour .

Update ;
Not much changes , pretty depressing I guess . I’ll be back whenever there is any significant changes
i think you’re wasting your time and money. You already know this probably isn’t going to work for you. You’ll be left feeling depressed along with a hole in your bank account. Work on loving yourself hun. There is nothing wrong with skin lightening but I really think you need to calm down and take it easy.

Hey girl good to hear about your last update, results give you a boost to work harder. i have an update also remember 5 months ago i said i have dots well now it became a whole pale patch in my thighs and behind my knees in only a month , and thats only because i started mixing mac tube with uniquin, cause i was using uniquin alone and didnt see other results than dots in my body And sensitive skin, and last month I started mixing and voilà new patches please keep us updated as i will too. Also an advice u really need to moisturize a lot use vaseline and vegetable glycerin together u will notice the dead skin falls faster when you scrub your skin yea and u need to scrub your skin every week so that you apply monobenzone on new skin

UPDATE: I've continued using 20% monobenzone and my body is lightening amazingly , but it seems like my face doesn't want to . I have a patch of lighter skin on my face , maybe about 3 shades lighter but not DE pigged 😭. I have a feeling that my body will de pig faster than my face .
At the moment , I'm doing a full body yellow peeling oil peel (except for my face and neck ) . Hopefully it will do me some justice .
I've also started taking 1000mg vitamin c everyday as its know to decrease melanin. 😅
I still have 12 tubes of 20% left but I'm going to order some tubes of 40% soon and start increasing the strength . I'll probably apply 20% in the morning and 40% at night .
I'll be taking a short break from monobenzone probably just on my face from mid April as I have a rhinoplasty booked for the 25th April and would rather not use any actives on my face at all.
Soo I'll probably not post any more updates until mid may or even June 😅
Hopefully I'm soon start seeing actual depigmentation soon , hoping ill be done at least by next year hopefully . I feeling probably by September / august ill have extreme changes , it will be my one year mark of applying religiously. 🥰

Unfortunately , I don't have any good before photos as before using monobenzone i had been using hydroquinone and steroids on my skin for two years , soo most of my before pictures my skin was waaaaaaaaaay more lighter than now and not my original color , its pretty depressing knowing that i can get super light very quickly with hydroquinone etc. but i hate that you cant even maintain a color for a week without using it😭😭 . Like I'm about 5 shades darker now but my skin is super clear soo its not too bad . Soo I have a very limited amount of pictures before that and most of them are with filters ( soo not accurate ) 😅. Before skin lightening i never really took picture as i literally had acne for all of high school. I'll hopefully post some pictures when I hit 1 year which will be September

UPDATE: *Impressed that i keep on updating
I have been having great results recently .The yellow peel worked amazingly on my body , kinda burned my chest and have some PIH (kinda it's about 1 shade lighter but its basically dry skin ) . Felt brave and applied it to my face and it went like extremely bad , my skin broke out in a rash , it was soo horrible but my skin is better now , I kinda burned one little spot on my face and now its just a lighter patch on my face , better than it being pitch black . I'll probably do a yellow peel every month or once every two months because it pretty painful ngl.

The way my skin is going it seems like my body will probably depig faster and even and my face and neck will probably depig in spots . My body has been giving me great results and i only apply once a day .i have some patches on my face they're not depiged but extremally light , my mum even said i should be careful before I give myself vitiligo 🥰 . Around my mouth i can see white spots wanting to pop out . I think by the end of summer my neck will probably be depig

Recently I've been focusing on my legs and occluding them everyday with 20% and its going extremely well seeing great results , especially my knees are looking really great and not pitch black. my belly will defiantly be a lot harder . i normally like to use a hot water bottle when its cold (nearly all the time ) , which literally burns my belly and inner thighs .

Now its approaching summer and i plan to spend most of it at home and if i have to go out probably covered or in the early morning or in the evening ( don't leave my house normally only for uni) . I'll be buying my next batch for summer in a couple weeks which will probably be about 10/15 20% tubes and 4 40% tubes , which will hopefully last me until September . I'm thinking of buying a sauna suit for occlusion for mostly my upper body because its annoying having to use soo much cling film(saran wrap) . Would definitely recommend occlusion I've seen great results in a short time .

Anyways , i must say that my hands look absolutely amazing especially compared to photos from last year , when i had absolutely horrible bleaching knuckles :sick::sick:. I'm going to buy some latex gloves ( heard they're better for occlusion than vinyl) for my hands .
