Is Carotone a bleaching cream? Review

Is Carotone a bleaching cream? This was exactly my query too when I first came across this cream. I know you wouldn’t mind reading my experience with the popular carotone cream. So, here it is!

My Personal Experience with Carotone Cream

My first experience was when I was looking for a cream that’ll gentle maintain my skin color and I don’t want to ever make the mistake of using a failed product. I can’t even recall who advised me to use carotone but some did actually. After then I asked around if it was good but most people said something else and it seems as if it was only her it worked for. Anyway, I did nothing but kept my money for other stuff.

So, fast forward to 7 months after!

It happens that my cream finish two days after my cousin came for vacation at our house. I was so broke that I was left with no choice but to use his cream. Surprisingly, he brought out a new carotone cream he just bought while coming to our place.

Things are getting interesting as my cousin is chocolate while I’m light. So, we could just test this out and see how it works, I asked my brother who is dark to also join us. We decided to try the cream at the same time and compare the result.

The 3 of us used this cream consistently with the soap and face cream for over a month and this is what happened!

The first two weeks went, I couldn’t see any changes for else it was just moisturizing my body and smoothening my skin, nothing more or less. I didn’t experience side effects nor did it lighten my skin in any way different.

As for my cousin who is chocolate skin; carotone toned her skin and gave her a creamy glowing caramel skin tone. His skin was very shiny, luminous, flawless and looked beautiful.

But for my brother who is dark in complexion; carotone cream seriously lightened her skin unevenly. I regrated I asked him to join because; 1. He doesn’t like creams he prefers using petroleum jelly. 2. Carotone gave him eczema on his chin and some part of the face.

Oh! Less I forgot yes the cream did give me dark knuckles too.

So, if you want to brighten up your complexion and tone your skin gradually, you can try carotone. It’s not suitable for dark skin as it lightens them and makes it look like they are bleaching their body. It is not bad for a chocolate skinned person as it comes with extra glowing.

Throughout my usage of carotone I did not see carotone as a potent cream as most people claims. Although I accept the fact that you shouldn’t use it and go around walking under the sun, even some of these natural soaps does that too.
