p.s. This is a safe product. I discussed any possible risks of hydroquinone with my doctor and it is fine. Don't buy crap that you haven't heard of....especially from overseas.
Getting a Rx for Hydroquinone 4% from your doctor might be cheaper than buying the Obagi Clear. I just bought the Obagi Nu Derm kit online at www.essentialdayspa.com they had really good prices just incase you continue to purchase Obagi products. I did my research on the company and it's registered with the BBB and has been in business for 25yrs. Once I run out of product I'm going to get a Rx for Hydro from my doctor and continue to use the Tretinoin cream and make my homemade cheaper version of "Obagi Nu Derm"

Default Skin Lightening Cream

Sensitive skin are at a disadvantage when it comes to cosmetics and skin creams Some people will break out in a rash, have red, irritated blotches or suffer from itchiness when using some products. An entire industry has developed around the use of sensitive skin products that are hypoallergenic and have anti-inflammatory properties. Best cream for facial skin bleaching and lightening cream is one that comes from nature and contain all natural ingredients. We should Use a skin lightening cream which not only protects your skin from the sun but also works day-in and day-out to lighten the skin and before trying out any cream on your skin make sure that you read all the list of ingredients it has in it. It should not have any chemicals like Parabens, mineral oils, petrolatum etc. These chemicals can harm your skin and make things even worse by causing side effects like skin irritation, dryness etc

I saw someone mention products from Japan. American products are definitely the best and most reliable. There are so many products out there, it must be difficult for someone who is not already familiar. A good rule thumb is anything that is celebrity fad based. There is a great skin bleach called Hollywood Bleach. You can probably find it on eBay or its site.

This is the only thing that REALLY works. I but from a pharmacy in India no script needed and I've never had a problem. Super cheap- like 4$ a tube but shipping is 25 so buy in bulk.

I've used in past for freckles and age spots. Start fading immediately and when i was using it, i started getting carded again.

Yes, it IS a bleach, so know the risks.

Good luck!

Ps- I think the brand is Johnson and Johnson. Most of our generic meds are made in India so it is less risky and more regulated than you think. I've also bought very cheap and effective Renova and Retin A micro generic there. J&J again I believe.

I want to make sure I buy a decent lightening lotion. Can you suggest a few? I'm not going to put it all over..just on the ridge of the top of my nose where the sun spots are.

I'm hoping for results in 1-2 months.
If I were to ask... Which you would you prefer?
Option 1. ---- Buying any skin whitening manufactured products?
Option 2. ---- Making your own whitening solution/recipe at your own home?

Option 1. ---- No hassles! No any other things to get your hands on dirty! All are just acquired and apply on your skin.
Option 2. ---- You know it's ingredients so you know that it is safe. You get to learn on it's actual ingredients and if you find it very effective you can advertise and sell it to your friends..

Now.. from those choices above? Which would you choose? Base on the benefits that you could have.

Option 2.

The only natural product I know for a fact that would work is lemon juice. When I was a kid, one of my neighbors used to always suck on lemons for some reason. I guess she was addicted? Anyway, she sucked on them so much that her lips turned very pale. This was a black kid.

Bedacha: I am thinking of getting Monsia Skincare's Skin Lightening Cream with Hyaluronic Acid for the liver spot I have on my left cheek. It is available online. "Ingredients such as Shea Butter, Hyaluronic Acid and collagen, this cream also includes the skin lightening and toning components glycerin, emu oil and aloe vera". If you do get it keep in touch and we can compare notes?
