Skin bleaching has become very popular in NIgeria. That is due to colorims or color discrimination, when men prefer fair skin ladies to the darker skin ones. That is one reason why people ask about Fair and White products. The truth must be told about all the bleaching products. THere are no safe ones among them. All of them have certain side effects, as skin bleaching is not a natural thing to do. It can damage your skin for good, evoke varous pimples, acne, rushes and allergies. It can also scar your skin and damage it severely. Surely, some of the projects are safe, such as Fair and White creams, but they are not completely safe or harmless. Keep this in mind when using them.

Regardless of the bleaching agent in the soap, there are no completely safe bleachers, which can produce the desired effect without ruining one’s skin. Yes, they all claim to be safe and effective. Still, you should watch out for the side effects produced by them and excessive skin dryness if one of the possible outcomes. So, the best solution really is to fall in love with yourself as you are and then the color or fairness would be no problem.

I have been using the cream for several years and it doesnt bleach my skin. Though i am not using the toning one, my complexion is perfect just needed something to make it glow.

I use the normal lotion type and i bet u its so perfect for my skin... I can recommend it to anyone cos i have been on it for over 5 yrs even with the soap.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

http://www.clinique.co.uk/templates/products/3step_landing.tmpl

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.

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!
