is this a bleaching cream, cos that looks like all those creams they sell in those black shops over here but would not dare sell them in places like Tesco and the like.

I'm just saying o, there are other ways to tone

i used this cream (fair and white) a few years back.

it was recommended to me after i got back from nysc orientation camp @ jos.

the weather at jos coupled with the horrible living conditions on camp wrecked havoc on my skin. i noticed there was no hydroquinine labelled on the bottle but i did have my suspicions about it cos it smelt kinda funny and besides the name of the cream - 'fair and white' screams ''bleaching cream''

anyway, after using about a quarter of the bottle, it brought back a healthy glow to my skin but left my feet very darkkkkk. i noticed this and i stopped using the cream. it took several bottles of dove mosturising/vaseline intensive lotion to get my feet back to it's original complexion.

in my own opinion, it is a bleaching/toning cream. simple!

One way is to be patient with whatever skin care regime ur using as these things take time.

If I were you invest in Clinique 3 step program.

Trust me this stuff works – after using it for 3 months someone asked me if I was bleaching – which I wasn’t cos I don’t bleach and it’s not my fault I have a good complexion tone – anyway back to topic.

What it does is bring out the best in ur face – brightens it, smoothes it and give you a much clearer glowing complexion – trust me when u wear ur make up you will notice the difference. I bought the full set in December and have not looked back since. Don’t know how much they sell it in Nigeria but it is a bit pricy here – but for the results I am willing to go without food to get the stuff.

Currently contemplating buying the total turnaround cream…………………hmmmmm not sure yet.

1 - Liquid Facial Soap
All the benefits of Clinique's famous dermatologist-developed facial soap in a liquid formula. Preps skin for the exfoliating action of Clarifying Lotion. Convenient pump dispenses just the right amount.

2 - Clarifying Lotion 3
Sweeps away dead surface skin cells on oily skin. Skin appears smoother, softer, with more light-reflecting qualities.

3 - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel/Lotion
Skin's moisture "drink". Helps replenish lost moisture. Skin looks fresher and healthier. Leaves no residue. Safe to use around eye area. Comforts and smoothes the skin.

a black person is using a cream called Fair & white, and So White?

Just when you think you've heard it all.

Black soap (dudu osun) can give you the same effect as fair & white you know. That's the paradox of life.

the person who posted this thread in the first place.
she is obviously discussing bleaching cream.
someone else said they used it and it messed up their feet, so they discontinued use.
this is obvious she is talking about bleaching cream.

someone willing to openly admit their self hate.

the poster of this topic has yet to say otherwise, so what do you think?

she's looking for suggestions, as you can read from her post she said. she's been looking a good cream since, and seeing the one her sis is using and effects wanted to know peoples opinion on it. and whether it contains any bleaching/toning indigent. which Funkybaby says it didnt work for her, which is understandable because even if it contained bleaching or not, everybody's skin is different what might work for you, wouldnt for me. she might not be necessarily looking to bleach her skin, so i think you were rushing to premature conclusion when you said she's self hating. you could suggest any good cream out there for her to try.

most cream do affect the hand or leg but it depends on the product. i once use slvoclair and it messed my hand, ever since i have been looking for a good cream to correct it because looking at my hand u will think i am bleaching but am not. i have spots that looks fairly than my hand and my middle hand looks darker. so if u also have any ideal cream please i will love to know. but i still like fair and white

Why cant some black people be satisfied with what God has given instead of brutalising their skins with all kinds of foreign made toning chemicals.

These so called "toning" creams damage a persons skin and later complexion. I have seen some bleachers who made themselves so ugly from using

these chemicals its so horrible to see. Bleachers also smell very bad when the sweat.

I'm a dark skinned lady. And ave been using the Fair & White thingy for two years now, and it worked pretty well on me, toned my skin a lil and gave me this shimmering look, just brought out my beuty. But what I noticed was that after I stoped for a while before using a recommended one i.e. Neutrogena, I became so dark than never before. The Irony of Fair & White is that you can't stop, when u start using it. But well, its also nice compared to the Neutrogena I used, never minding the nasty smell it gives.

i used SO WHITE for almost 1 year and 6 months and it was really nice on me, my feet was not dark and all that, i used the exfoliating soap and moisturizer, i also used olay classic something with SPF 15, i have forgotten the name (have been looking for that cream for a while now). i started using them in 2008 and i looked really nice, and glowing but somehow i got tired of it, dont know why exactly but i have a feeling its making my skin thinner, infact i got bored using same thing esp when i couldnt find the Olay moisturizer i was adding to the cream. but its really nice. am sure abt the soap and the moisturizer. the serum is rubbish if u ask me.

Didn't get me right I guess, read again (no offence). I was only pointing out the excellence of Fair & White. I didn't mention it bleached me, it only brought out my colour making it shining. Moreover, I ave frendz hu used fair and white, they are as dark as I am, and didn't even change their colours for once, it only maintained their colour. Its pretty good for a product.

SMH at this thread.

anything called fair and light, so white, white and clear or whatever, if the title uses words that indicates being brighter, "toned", clear is bleaching cream in my opinion, I don't care if it has hydroquinone or not, not using it. and yes it will thin your skin out as someone brought out in the post above. you are weakening your skin (for lack of better phrase). OUr color is ment as a protection for us and adds to our beaury. Using all these products prevents your skin from doing what it needs to do thats why many bleachers become 2-toned or darker then they were b4.

I used in 2006 when it came out recently in UK and my legs became white cause they were always covered. But if you do not want to become blick (slang for darker than black) do not use it on face or any part of skin exposed to day light. The slightest sunshine darkens the skin. My face became five shades darker with this product. My legs became white rosy. So I stopped using it after it made my face darker.
I liked the results in the legs.
