    My Proven Way To Lighten Your Lips

    Asked Aug 13, 2009, 10:39 PM 59 Answers
    My bottom lip is pink with a dark brown outline.
    My top lip is dark brown (purple, some say).
    The dark brown is what I'll say is at least 2 or 3 shades darker than my facial skin.
    (it's about the same color as my dark knees and elbows which I am also working to lighten).

    Originally, I tried lightening my lips using lemon.
    I sucked on the lemon twice a day for 3 days.
    On the third day, my top lip swelled slightly in the middle of the lip.
    It revealed a light brown tone underneath the swelling.
    I stopped using the lemon after that day.
    On the 4th day, the swelling went down and the middle of my lip was a bit lighter but not as large as the area that had swelled.
    I take the swelling as a good sign.

    Then I was told to use Diana Stalder Lightening Cream.
    I tried this for 6 weeks and saw very little if any lightening.

    Then I used the Diana Stalder Glutathione Soap with some Vaseline.
    On the 3rd day, the middle of my upper lip swelled to a kind of light brown shade.
    I stopped using the product for 3 days to give my lips a rest.

    Now, on my 3rd session,
    I've done this for the last 5 days, only at night, and the middle of my top lip is revealing a lighter shade.

    On the 3rd day, my lip swelled in the middle to reveal a browninsh-pinkish shade that was covered in a purple-ly layer. It's reminded me of a sausage, like if you cut the sausage top layer off, a clearer color will come out ;]

    Here's how I've been using the soap!

    - I exfoliate my lips gently with a wet towel or my tooth brush.
    - then I dry my lips and wet the soap slightly.
    - I then apply to soap to my top lip and the outline of my bottom lip.
    - I let this dry.
    - sometimes I apply Diana Stalder Lightening Cream on top of it and then I apply vaseline.
    - if you want, you can just apply vaseline. You just may be wasting some cream.
    - after I've applied the vaseline, I rub this in really nicely. You can skip this, I just do it.


    I think the lips lighten from the middle to the ends for some odd reason.
    I've beeen having a hard time lightening the bottom lip outline.

    i will be posting pictures for you when it's more noticable in the photos.
    i photograph much darker than i really am.


    Depending on your skin type and what products work best for you,
    You may chhose to use a different soap.

    The reason this Go Diva Lip Gloss doesn't work for everyone may be for 2 reasons
    1) it has more petroleum and not enough of the licorice extract
    2) licorice extract is not the most potent ingredient here even though it's gentle

    And, well 3, not everything will work for everyone!

    some tips and advice!

    The upper lip is sensative, so it will burn.
    I ignore the burning.
    I mean, it RRRREALLY burns.
    Especially on the 3rd and 4th days.
    Sometimes the burrning lasted for over an hour but I simply ignored it because this just means the product is working.

    The Glutathione Soap doesn't taste good but I just drink some milk or whatever and kind of gargle it.

    I don't eat after I put this on until it's completely dried with the vaseline on.
    I usually do this at night so I don't really eat that late anyway.

    I recommend giving your lips a rest according to your comfort level.

    I figure I'll see really good results in about 2 weeks, excellent results in about 4.
    It may even take 8 weeks but I'm prepared for that.

    I'm going to start apply twice daily soon.

    If you've got any questions or anything, just comment here and I'll be glad to answer you here.

    I hope this works for you as well

    Are you serious?
    Because I have the same problem
    My skin is browwn but my upper lips are close to getting black and the outline
    It looks like I smoke! That's how serious it is
    So do you think the cream would help fix that or no?

    I know it's not for everyone and it isn't cheap but I had permanent make up done on my lips several years ago and I really liked the results. The effect lasts for approx 5 years and I am thinking about topping it up now that it's fading.

    Godiva lightened my lips. I didn't noticed it until after I stopped using it and one day I'm looking in the mirror like wow. So I have another jar and I'm about to use it again.

    Yes I added a rosy tone to my lips. Before I could only describe my lip colour as looking really lifeless. I hated it.

    The procedure was painful as there are so many sensory nerves in the lips and straight after my lips were enormous. I had to cover them with a scarf because it looked so odd. But it was all worth it to me.

    Hey I thought of getting the permanent eyebrows too! But, I was also thinking that once I reach my desired shade I want to have them dyed them a light brown like Tyra's. So, I'm going to purchase the Lumigan (same as Latisse) instead and put it on my eyebrows and eyelashes so they will grow thicker and darker.

    I've read that the Latisse does not work... have you heard different?
