1 55+ Cristaline anyone tried it ? on Sun Feb 14, 2010 8:03 am

So I read alot of places
that 55+ Cristaline
works good recently on
Askhelpdesk
from BrownDeceit

"as all of you know I'm in LOVE with the 55H Crystalline because it
offers me quick and dramatic lightening results. I had gotten into a
routine of using once sometimes even TWICE a day. Though it was
lightening my skin. It was making it TOO soft. Because it is a
glycerine based product. While in Africa I didn't have the opportunity
to really use it, because the one time I tried, it made me break out
like crazy while I was there. I dunno if it was the heat or my body
just wasn't reacting right to it. So I stopped using it for 2 weeks. So
for two weeks I used nothing but dove soap and regular vitamin e face
lotion. I got back and yes I was noticeably darker but my face was
FIRMER. Which I LOVED. So I've started using 55H HARMONIE REPARATEUR -
Multi-Vitamin bleaching lotion, which honestly does not offer dramatic
results like the Crystalline, it's a much slower lightening process,
but I do believe I lightened up a little bit from this product. And it
doesn't take away from the firmness of my skin. Which I'm happy about.
I do wish it worked a bit faster though. =( Anyway. I'll keep you guys
posted on my progress!"


and I was seriously consider buying it,
which one is best here are 2 different ones

55H+ Efficacite Extreme Body Lotion Strong Bleaching Treatment 500ml
or
55H+ Cristaline Strong Lightening Fine Glycerine 500ml

I'm unsure which of the 2 works best, as some people have good results from one but not from the other. 55H+ has so many products to test, some who tried the crystaline glycerine have great fast results. Some have no results at all, and some have minimal results...this is where I fall in. I tried it on my face and neck, but saw little lightening when i compare results to hq and some other products. And really oily product. It would be good to hear more results from others on it's effectiveness, since the few reviews are mixed.

I was considering trying [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]or [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]one of these days, so I put it on my "want to try" list since they are supposed to be more of a concentrated gel.

lol...dont worry we all are. Especially when I first heard of 55h+ using natural lighteners and is low cost...effective for many? I dont know.

I saw it today online, so you may want to try the gel creme first since it is supposed to be more concentrated and the to be costs about $7-8

Yeah i am hehe,
it is going great really, I am seeing fast results
Ive been using for a week only now,
so far so good, no discoloration no bad health or skin reaction.

I look very palish-yellow but only when i come home from the cold weather
i think it is the mequinol.

my goal is to look like my avater picture of MJ.

maybe
or I just atleast wanna use my own mixture of
the powerful
HQ - Retin A 0,5 - Mequinol


I call them the 3 giants, I was willing to try this
at my own risk, so far it is working
I am seeing difference, but I am looking forward to
see about a month or 2.
Is just a shame I dont have a camera
so i could do a before and after pictures

that's good to hear that your seeing results. Is it the 10% mequinol you are using and how often do you apply this? Try to use it sparingly as it has potenital of causing white spots at 10%.

About the 55h+ you are looking for a near future milder alternative after the hq/ra?

the HQ and Mequinol for a long time,

mobster, I am not sure abut using a TCA peel on your face, especially as you are already on the Retin A so are getting pretty good exfoliation. I think if you are really looking for a boost then a lactic acid or a very mild glycolic peel would be preferable and obviously making sure you give yourself a break from the Retin A for a few days before and after the peels.

Also as you have only been using your current regime for a short while, I would hold off from doing too much all at once anyway. Just keep an eye on how things are going and I am so happy that you are seeing results hun !!!! Please do keep us updated with how it is going.

Thank you that was very sweet of you.
Ill definently keep everyone updated,

Yes the TCA peel will be too harsh, you are right.

as i am already getting burned in the face when i use the soap,
how does the lactic acid work does it burn

I agree, TCA is a higher strength acid and something I would rather go to a professional for this treatment. Although it may work well on some, it is not a requirement and can possibly do more damage and darkening than good. Especially for the face.

Lactic acid can surprisingly do wonders to acne scars, scars on the body, hyperpigmentation, melasma, and even with continued use depending on the percentage used lactic can actually help lighten the skin some. And is more of a gentle AHA, but very effective. Lactic acid peel 30%-40% for the face, or 50% for the body can be a good start. So far 3 of my scras on my arms and hands are gone, and the 3 are fading away..yeah I usd to be a tomboy when a kid. And while using them I noticed my arms had lightened some, not dramatically, but quite noticeable as I wasn't erally expecting that to happen. I used only once on my face but I had to give my skin about a 1 week break to rest from the retin-a before applying lactic peel. And it had made my skin so soft and even-toned on my arms and the lightening ingredients do seem to absorb more easily. But with AHA's you need to use a pH balancer to prevent burns and strong irritation.

But for now sticking with the hq/ra/meq may be a good idea since it is working for you. and as your skin adjusts, switching up a bit then. I'm actually using 1 lightener for the face and 1 for certain areas of the body, retin-a, and facial acne scrub that also helped even my skin more.

What is your current shade and what was your original shade? Personally, I do think it is possible just have to know what your original is? But, benoquin will take you beyond this up to his last shade in the later years of his life. The 2 photos above still have light brown pigments.

so mobster, as you say the first pic is your shade Now, do you have an indication of your colour before you started on your regime, as that would give us an idea of what you have already achievd so far.

Knadiluv, I believe it has been mentioned that MJ may have had vitiligo and decided to use benoquin to match the pigment loss. .

yeah i know he had a pigment loss,
but he still used bleaching cream for the rest,
Dr. Arnold Klein told that on Larry King.

I was as dark, as Michael Jackson was when he was younger.

have you decided which 55h+products to try first? It would be interesting to know if their lightening gel can produce nice results or not. what is your current shade you had lightened to so far, or is it at the original shade? And how long have you used your current regimen?

i have only lightened 1 and half shade,
but my cheeks and nose have lightened 2 shades,
so yeah a bit patchy, but you cant see big difference the other places will catch up.
i will wait with the cristalline and continue
the hq-retin a-mequinol.

yeahI think this happens because some areas of the face is thicker than others. I usually also see results quicker on my nose area and cheekbone area, but my forehead seem to take the longest.

At the moment for myself I'm still exfoliating, vitamin c serum, and sunblock. It isn't anything extreme, but this will help me have a more even complexion.
