NC30 or NC25ish.
thanks @moon maiden , but irony that i am not evenly distributed on my body with same shade, the shade you mentioned is good for my confirmation as i was wondering whether i was right with it or not!! i was more on nc 30 on face (u know in pics it appears little lighter thn original) maybe i am more on a nc 20 side on my face right now, my back of neck, my back and waist is comparatively dark with no explanation and its obvious because of contrast, i still have them to work on! apart from that my face is hard when it comes to lose any color, i expected to lose color with exfoliation but that wasn't the case, 4 percent hq was only able to lighten me 2 shades more in course of 5 months and now i am just maintaining with natural lighteners but i think i did lost half shade maybe, not much sure, thank you again dear :)
and also, i am thinking of quitting lightening on face so maybe this shade will return, i think this would be my face shade forever because i an in winters now, and i do appear lighter than in summers, now as summers are hitting, i am afraid that the changes i saw were more like natural with winters :/ in summers i am going easy on my face with sap and niacinmanide only, i hope i wont revert back to this, though chances are high, i am working on my body this year .

Hello Nice skin, what do you use please?
@Suugaar
hey dear, by that time i was taking good care of skin only, you can say it was by best skin before skin lightening, I was drinking more water, night cream , day cream and sap only by that time, fast forward to now, i am little lighter than this on face, i did exfoliation for months in hope i will lose any color but i wasn't able to do that with exfo alone , than i inroduce hq with ra for five months, that way i was able to lighten up 2 shades only, i am sure you will do better than this,... now I am maintaining with ra and niacinmanide, k,a from nov 2016 with no further lightening. :(

@gymrat Do you have any discount codes for MUAC pleaseee?

Also what vit c would you recommend for that beautiful even glow and tone? something very effective I'm focusing on fixing my skin, it's so damaged from all the creams and unhealthy lifestyle.

My second question apply to everyone btw lol I need a very good vit c serum, and facial wash.

Hey @brown2light, I know they just had a sale, 27% off, try promo code anniversary all lowercase. If that doesn't work try all lower case twenty for 20% off.

Try the fade peel from MUAC. But too am currently using Obagi's entire Nu Derm line, lots of products/steps but so worth it......my most recent purchase was from Lovelyskin http://www.lovelyskin.com/

Thank you guys.

Initially I wanted to buy Obagi but it's out of my price range, I'm on a very tight budget at the moment. Is there any other good brand on amerzon or ebay?
