Honest And Unbiased Review For Fair & Flawless And Tonique: CanThey Actually Whiten, Lighten, & Brighten the Skin?



This is an honest and unbiased review done for the products of Fair & Flawless and Tonique Skin Care. I decided to write this review based on the experiences of others along with the stigma and false claims marketed from advertisers in order to confuse potential customers. Sellers nor marketers should be able to profit from one's curiosity of what is effective and what is not. For those who are interested in trying one or the other, or both, but would like to learn more information about them first feel free to read as well as share your positive and negative experiences.


Fair & Flawless pH5.5XF Intensive Skin Whitening Gel
:

Original cost was estimated around $200 and currently on sale for $99.97; 4 oz (on sale perhaps due to the prices of Tonique's products).

Ingredients: Pure Aloe Vera Extract, Purified Sea Water, Sorbitol, Glycereth-26, Corpus Crispus (no data found on what this is unless also misspelled), White Tea Extract, Allatoin (misspelled word of Allantoin), Lemon Extract, White Ginger Extract, Carbomer –940, Wild Chamomile, Alpha Arbutin, SepiWhite Msh (undecylenoyl phenylalanine), Glycolic, Lactic and kojic Acids, tamarind extract, Malic Acid, Apple extract, Horse Chestnut, imidazolidinyl Urea, methyparaben (misspelled word of Methylparaben), Fragrance.


Tonique 10x Intense Skin Whitening Gel

(or cream): $99.95, 4 oz

Ingredients: purified sea water, aloe vera gel, ginko biloba extract, ginseng extract, Sepiwhite MSH (undecylenoyl phenylalanine), sepicalm VG, Sepinov EMT 10, extracts of watermelon, cucumber, mulberry, marigold & mulethi root, alpha arbutin, lactic acid, glycolic acid, vegetable glycerin, vitamin E, propylene glycol, natural fragrance


I will be listing the known positives as well as the negatives about BOTH brands in an unbiased manner. Both have been proven to give positive results for skin lightening, as well as having their flaws.


Pros:
*BOTH were supposedly sent to a laboratory to be properly tested and the results were claimed to be equally safe. Free of mercury, steroids, hydroquinone, heavy metals, and toxins. Although, result documentations have not been made visible in order to thoroughly judge either one.

*BOTH possibly contain the lightening agent Undecylenoyl Phenylalanine also known as the name brand Sepiwhite.

*BOTH has potential to lighten the skin.

*BOTH products have similar lightening ingredients, accept for one containing more of the synthetic lightening agent Undecylenoyl Phenylalanine and the other containing more
Kojic Acid.

*Tonique is known to have good customer service, responding quickly, professional, and friendly to customers and potential customers.


Cons:

*Tonique has given several customers skin irritations, rashes, and negative side effects (possibly due to the high amounts of AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) and large amounts of Sepiwhite (10x) more than what is required such as 2%).

*Tonique seemed to not have a high successful rate on brown pigmented skin, in comparison to fair pigmented skin.

*BOTH companies have very high prices for very small quantity. Although the cost to make the lightening product is actualy inexpensive to make. Tonique is slightly less expensive, and F&F is currently on sale for about the same price.

*Fair & Flawless products tend to lack in consistency and their stability with the formulas. Having caused inconsistency with skin lightening, negative skin reactions such as acid burns, skin thinning, or may have none or minimum lightening results at times. Skin thinning has been reported, possibly due to the high levels of fruit acids and 5% Sepiwhite claimed to contain, in which 2% Sepiwhite is the required amount.

*Fair & Flawless tend to have unstable customer service for their customers and potential customers. Many, including myself, I have spoken with them on several occasions. Phone calls and emails can either be quite friendly or rude, people not receiving a response or response in a rude manner.


I believe more products should honestly be reviewed from previous customers in order for the products to be improved and to have a greater evaluation. Keep in mind that the cost to make these products are much cheaper than they are sold. Personally, I do believe that customers and potential customers do have the choice to say what they would like to see improved or changed. As the saying goes "the customers are always right". Although definitely not always, but this does mean that the customers are there to have needs met and questions answered in order for a product(s) to improve and progress.



Please feel free to give your honest review and personal experiences with the Fair & Flawless and/or Tonique Skin Care products that you have tried. Whether they are positive or negative experiences.

kandiluv,

For some reason and I really do not know why, but I am not surprised at what you have said. There is just something about Winnie. There was a bit of an age difference between her and Nelson, so maybe this is why she ended up straying. As for the possibility that she was responsible for many deaths, I pray that this is just hearsay. Nelson is such a peaceful loving man, that the thought that he married someone that could have blood on her hands just sounds absolutely abhorrent.

Well so far banana boat is working just fine. The only sun exposure I get to the sun is when I drive in me car lol.

I suppose seeing as how winnie is involved with politics she could have blood on her hands inadvertantly.

I am familiar with the banana boat sunblock, but only from commercials and seeing it on shelves. I used to have a coworker who enjoyed singing their jingle whenever she saw someone with a large sized head too. So, whenever I read or hear anything banana boat sunblock being mentioned, her singing comes to mind..lol.

About Winnie I don't know. There must be some positive things about her as well hence Pure Perfect using her to endorse their products and she is in the spotlight, so I hope it's just heresay too. From reading, Winnie and Mandela were married I believe only for a few months until he was sent to prison years ago. I don't know how long they were dating really, but from reading they may not have known each other for very well in the beginning of their relationship.

Well your right he was sent to prison shortly after they married so they never had a real marriage per se.

I'm sure there are nice things about winnie, I really have no opinion either way.

Lol I sometimes wish a bunch of men in suits would follow me with yellow umbrellas

So sill no test results? If they passed the test then shouldn't be a problem to disclose the results to potential buyers or at least have them posted on their site.

Well I do know on another skincare forum a member had tested FF and said it came clean but, I read within the past few months this same user now claiming he tested them again and they showed it contained steroids.

I honestly do not know what to believe anymore.

Based on the experience of a couple of members here I would say it probably does have steroids. Thinning skin, stretch marks and easy bruisng are dead give aways.

Yes before I left I remember some members here who had used fair and flawless said they got thinned skin. I did use the parfait and so far havehad none of the signs of steroids, just a lighter wallet.

well you probably got the batch that did not have the said lightening ingredients in it. I am sure I remember reading that they have a guy who just mixes up whatever on a weekly bases. They are not professional skin care experts, just professional thieves

The just mix it up weekly?! Well I guess that means their products are 'fresh' lol and that would explain why some would get a second jar and not see as dramatic results as before. Th parfait felt nice and a little did go a long way, I did notice the first week I got some black dots on the sides of my forhead but they went away with the use of my handy apricot scrub and never came back, this was also the first week I had started using the crub after not having used it for a good month; I think it was just my skin purging itself.

But don't you think for the price you would have liked to have seen some sort of difference?

h*ll yes.

I paid about $65 or so for that little jar, I could have bought nadinola for $6 and used the rest for shoes Smile
I will say that after a month of use I did stop but then I started using what I had left, lasted me up until last Tuesday and I could've sworn that every night aftr I washed my face my skin looked lighter. I don't know if this was just a trick of the mind real :/

Lol I have spent so much on things that did not work that I am with you with the shoes. Best not to think about it else you get mad !! lol

Oh yes, shoes are always worth the money thank goodness for DSW lol.

What I meant to say above was, "I don't know if this was a trick of the mind or real." Lol stupid typos.

Anywho, I won't lie and say I'm not tempted to try the 5x gel. I thought if it worked I could use it just toget light and then switch to HQ for regular upkeep and using my apricot scrub along with a weekly body sugar scrub( feels so good).

I migh try f&w....last year a friend gave me the rest of hers and it did lighten me but I think I may have gotten darken then I was before once I ran out :3

hun it's not worth the money, You would be better off getting a tube of steroids and adding it to a lightener. That is basically what they have done and charged an arm and a leg for it. Believe me when I say I saw serious thinning using it and I wasn't even using it that much
