Wow it’s been years since I been on the forum and years since I joined, I randomly decided to see if this site was around after browsing YouTube self care vids and thought to myself, remember SCT and the real GOATS of skincare. I learned so much from you guys, I reached my goal but fell off, not by much. I have a lot of knowledge and easily bounce back. I’m thankful for this forum before social media was really putting out this type of info or really existed 😊😊😊😊 ❤❤❤❤ Love all you guys and hope everyone is doing well ✨

@Mixedchica how are you, long time no see??!! SCT is still around, we've gone through a few different platform changes, but other then that, it's still the same.

So glad you stopped in to say hello.....there are so many like yourself who appreciate SCT and invested the time and energy it took to reach your goal. We learned and shared so much over the years right here. We found a way to reach like minded people, LONG before SM was even a thing. For that, in my eyes, we are pretty special.

The originals of SCT are like family. Just because you don't see/hear from them, you will never forget them 😘

Hey everyone,

Wow can't believe a lot of you guys are still around! I'm so happy to see that this site is still running...I was active back in 2011 and then life got in the way, I had 4 babies in that time and now I'm done having babies I'm trying to get my skin one complexion again. I basically forgot everything and have to start from zero lol. Well I know the basics but have no idea of what products to use. So happy to see y'all especially @gymrat i can never forget your name handle 😆

I can relate when life gets busy because you look at your skin two yrs later and your skin looks messy again. I promised myself I will be consistent this year with skincare hopefully forever this time around

Omg the memories are flooding back!!😭😭
Just logged in after years off being away and happy to recognize some familiar users.
Just like y’all life, maturity, and wisdom was what contributed to my inactivity overtime.
I learned a lot about skincare overall and started being more realistic about my goals.
During the 10+ years of lightening there was too many up and downs and came to realize my dream goal at 18 was not going to be sustainable.
The social affects was my really my wake up call. Can’t be making friends and being outgoing with a Rihanna face, hit a wall and return with Meagan Good face. Got everybody confused, and your lack of confidence and reclusiveness starts to show!😂

Anyways long story short, I’m still obsessed as ever with skincare but now aim for super clear, even skin. It’s still light compared to my start in 2009, due to now never holding a tan whatsoever. I’ve reached and maintained my goal through derm recommended products and treatments. Couldn’t have done it without starting off with this forum. Love y’all!!

Yes. Do miss some people (though I wasn’t really that active myself) - Xarar, Flowerscent, Hotblond, Iamme, Gus1993, and this lively girl (forgot the name but she had a Kuwaiti background). Good, ol’ days. Garnered so much knowledge and made some real great memories. :))

We all come back. You don’t necessarily see us, but we lurk around. The forum has evolved and that “perfect storm” that happened a decade ago brought together a great amount of knowledge and some wonderful friendships. I can remember reading threads from beginning to end to learn from the masters. I was so envious of their knowledge and their willingness to share. Still keep a good daily routine…without the jessner/tca… dermatologist never believed I was doing them at home, but that’s another story. Glad the forum is still here!

Yup, still here all these years and still lurking LOL. I fell off glutha iv, pills, lotions. Still struggling with dark neck,stomach and dark booty undercuff lol. I just want one even tone (not lighter shades) all overrrrrr!!!! Very frustrating. Geeshhhhh, But I feel hopeful for the year. Maybe expensive creams isn't the answer, but Mitchell brand if consistent.

I think it’s because there aren’t any new products that are popular and work really well. There was the caro white era, then the skin light era then the Piona era then the dodo era. I feel like most people know how to use the products and which products to stay away from. Also after you’ve hit your goal many times lightening isn’t has exciting. I took a long break and I was my original color for almost a year. Now that I’m lightening again it’s not as fun or exciting even when I reach a new level of lightness. Also sometimes I look at pictures of lighter me and I kinda feel bad for her like she wasn’t all the way mentally there. I started lightening at 15 I’m 25 turning 26 next year I think most of us are maturing and with age you care a lot less. Also my focus has switched to surgery I have a nose job booked before my birthday. Now I’m around Tahoe by NARS or 345 fenty I like this color I’d never try for NC20 again especially after all the times I’ve been burned NC35 is my highest I’m willing to go. Now I only really lighten for social mobility not because I do badly want to be light/pale like before. Before I enjoyed the journey it was so fun to see what I could accomplish everything was new! Now I know what to expect now it’s just a chore something in the background it’s not at the forefront for me anymore. I also like someone said there is so much information on skincare on YouTube ig TikTok etc. back in 2014–15 etc. skin care wasn’t popular so this thread was gold I learned so much from reading this thread and I’m so thankful for the family I had here. It was an amazing place with like
Minded people where I could say what I wanted and I could honestly share my experiences I could find people that relate to me
Well what do you use because I've completely failed at this. I wanted to lighten my hands and feet first so I won't look weird and they've gotten drier and darker 😒. I just don't know anymore.

I know how you feel, I really do!!
The most active year for me was 2009/2010. It used to be so much fun and I was here every...single...day!! lol
It was so informative, helpful members, lots of feedback and exchange of ideas.
I was here when YahooGroups was still a thing! lol (remember those?)

But then drama from Askmehelpdesk skin lightening forums spilled over here.
So began the finger pointing, false accusations and yes I was temporarily Banned as well.

I was let back in (years ago) after clearing my name but by then it left a sour taste in my mouth.
It just wasn't the same for me anymore but I stop by from time to time to see what's up.

Ahhhh....the good old days lol
