sonny 1988, I think you mentioned before that you got your mono from mac labs. Was this a recommendation? I have heard so often people stating they have not received real mono and it would be good to know whether you have the genuine product, in terms of deciding whether you want to continue with what you already have. Unfortunately it is going to get harder and harder with mono no longer being produced as it was before.

I'm unfamiliar with Genericsbiz, I think you mentioned it before that this is the one you use Mobster? Where do you get your retin-a?

Sonny1988 you should try contacting Mac Labs and see if you can get a refund?

I would be scared too. because if it does mess up the skin, only other options would be to completely depig, use other skinlighteners to help improve the appearance of the spots, or there are repigmenting options.

I used Mequinol for 2months, and HQ,
it really does help me alot,
I might just continue using that.

the process seem slow sometimes,
and I never used Mono.

alone, it really isnt that effective, with Retin A
is more powerful.

I may try it one of these days...I just worry about the burning and stinging and if I'll be able to tolerate it.

hmmm..lol, the severeness of it I'm wondering if I can handle. I remember when I first started hq and retin-a 0.05%, and the Likas my skin felt like it was on fire the first several weeks.

I'm wondering if I can handle meq. On a scale 1-10 (10 being the worse) how would you rate meq's burning?

oh, ok. I see, then it should be tolerable for me then. It would be great if you could write a review of you meguinol/tretinoin experience and regimen in the Product Reviews category for us whenever you have time, as it would be very useful for everyone who would like to learn more information about it, including myself [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Sure, I think I wait for review, after 3 months of use.
I dont think I can make any conclusions after 2 months only.

sonny1988, Hopefully it is a good indication that you probably have the real deal, if mobster has had a good experience purchasing from the same source. It may be just a question of waiting a little longer. I am guessing that you have still some product left, so you may as well continue until you finish at least.

In terms of my regime, it is mainly Fair & flawless, which is maintaining my complexion, but not much else, occasionally makari, which I don't think is doing very much at all. I have also started using L acorbic vitamin C and adapalene ( a bit like Retin A), which is really giving my skin a flawless texture. There are other things but I could go on and on. To be honest , the products that were really lightening me up are no longer available, but I am working on my next plan of action LOL.



By the way, it's my husband who is from India.

How long have you been using the monobenzone?,

When I used the HQ from that site, combined
with 10% Mequinol, I really achieved some great and small realistic results
within 2 Months, It really is a good combo.
Maybe u should try that.

Your skin is very light already,
So It might take longer for you too see difference.

5-10 minutes! That is a long time, no wonder it is still buring so much. The first couple of weeks I had let the soap sit on my skin for only 1-2 minutes and I actually used a fan to help it dry much quicker. After a copuple of weeks and my skin became more accustomed to the soap and didnt really sting, I let it sit a bit longer. I think it was around my 2nd month of use I actually let it sit on my skin for 5-8 minutes. but this was with the makari which was an oily product and didn't really exfoliate much.

When I was using Likas though, I let it sit for like 10-20 seconds because it stung so much and made my eyes burn.I think I was more sensitive to the likas because I was using hq and retin-a as well.

yes guys, i think i should continue mono`s usage. i applied mono after using kojic soap and it burned alot that i couldn`t bear it and i had to wash my face instantly to cool it down . i got tears flowing out. so i waited for another 5 mins and reapplied mono and this time it burned little less.

mobster -- i have been using mono for like one and a half month now. i felt very little stinging when i started using it first, but it dissappeared later on.

due to peeling off from kojic soap even my moisturisers burns a little when i apply it immediately after washing my face. i hope my skin isn`t getting thinner because it will be really easy for me to get sun burns.

golden girl-- i think i should reduce the timing for kojic soap, i am scared that it will leave my skin burned.
