I bought this product primarily for its whitening usage. I have been using this product for quite some time, about two years, and it doesn't really meet my expectations since it was a really slow process but you do it gradually see the difference. Then when I moved to America I started getting into tanning, but I really wanted to finish the entire bottle so I kept using it. I have a quick suggestion for people who have already bought this, is to always apply thecream onto your face and the neck! Or else The skin tone of your face and the skin tone on your neck will be in two different shades!
