Is their anyone who has had dark Afro- Amer or Afro- Carib and are know a fairer and more even complexion from using skin lighteners. If so can you lead me in a direction, I am willing to use any regime just not too expensive. Thanks guys :)

    Hello and welcome to the forums. :)

    The products that are hot just now are Bio Claire, Diana Stalder and monobenzone (that completely depigments your skin).

    Bio Claire is the cheapest so try that out first.

    Good luck. :)

    I don't know if I trust this site because the pictures they are using for before and after have different lighting. I have pictures where I look pitch black because of lack of light, then I have pictures where I look very light because of sunlight or flash. So I don't know how acurate this is.

    Hello everyone, thanks for all the advice. I am currently using fair&white gel cream with clovate, and it is working really well. Start seeing a lot of changes so far. About that website with Rhiana bleaching her skin did not show that much difference between the before and after pics. Regardless, I found a website by the name of World Of Entertainment they claim to have the best skin lightening products and have sold to Lil Kim and other celebraties. They have a wide rage of products and are also expensive. When I have money I am going to try some of the products.

    World of entertainment are a scam! They have ripped off people and their products are dangerous to use.

    Hey SassyT I've been using it for two and a half weeks. The active ingredient is hydroquinone 2%. There's a lot of debates about the active ingredient because it is dagerous, but I've done a little research of my own and found that 2% is not dangerous. I am starting the vitamin C 6000 mgs a day to help stop the melanin production.

    This is for punk chic, do you know any who has tried the products from World Of Entertainment because I would like to try their lightening pills and mega blast cream.

    There was a member on here named Officialangeleyes that used a product from world of entertainment. She was not happy with the results. She said it harmed her skin.
    She then said she sent the remaining product to a lab to get it tested and see what it contains. We are currently awaiting for the results.

    Thanks for looking out, when I was on their website they did say be careful because the product is strong. They even advice you on how often you should use the cream, I by no means am saying they are safe to use. However I hope that girl recover from whatever it is the cream did to her skin. What is the best lightening pills on the market? That I could use for my skin. Also do you have any info about what Lil Kim or rhiana is using to bleach their skin.

    Sexy, be care full of that substance it is going to make your skin look worse!
    Please read this article

    The long term effects of using skin lightening products


    Hydroquinone or Mercury applied to the skin will react with ultra violet
    Rays and re-oxidise, leading to more pigmentation and premature ageing.
    More product is then applied in an attempt to correct the darker blotchy
    Appearance.


    These are the beginnings of a vicious cycle. By altering the skins
    Natural structure and inhibiting the production of Melanin, itís natural
    Protection, the skin is more susceptible to skin cancer.


    Prolonged use of Hydroquinone will thicken collegen fibres damaging the
    connective tissues.
    The result is rough blotchy skin leaving it with a
    spotty cavier appearance.


    Mercury will slowly accumulate within the skin cells striping the skin
    Of itís natural pigment leaving behind the tell tale signs of gray/ blue
    Pigmentation in the folds of the skin. In the long term the chemical
    will damage vital organs and lead to liver and kidney failure and
    mercury poisoning.


    The WOE products are also dangerous!

    I also suggest Clovate Fast Rapid Action. Working within two weeks. Sivoclair carrot cream is also good. I prefer the cream over the lotion. :)

    That's fine you can continue to use it if you want to but will never use a toxic chemical to lighten my skin. I am not willing to take the health risks. I know it has been banned in Europe and Asian countries. There is a reason for that.
