- Palmer’s Skin Success Eventone Fade Milk helps fade dark spots and evens skin tone all over body
Great for removing unwanted spots
I started using this on my elbows which were dark and this product has lightened the area well. It also removed the blemish marks on my back. This is something I heard about through my friend at work so I searched on Amazon for it. The fragrance is pretty. This is something I will continue to buy.
IT LIGHTENED MY MARKS AND IS VERY GOOD RO THE SKIN INSTEAD OF BUYING THE SEPARATE ONE I USE THIS ON MY FACE. GREAT.
It Works (Read Tips For Potential Effectiveness)
I purchased this over a year ago because I had so many post-acne hyperpigmentation marks on my face, including really dark and noticeable spots. I used this product for some time and for whatever reason, I moved on from it and stopped using it. I do remember it being decent, I don’t remember why I did halt using this. Fast forward many months, I decided, “I purchased this, why not employ the contents to completion?” I’ve been utilizing this for a few weeks now (solely on my face), and have really seen a difference. I’m not exaggerating when I say that every day in the last few weeks that I’ve applied this to my face, when I wake up and look in the mirror to see if any changes have occurred, I do observe that the post-acne spots have either disappeared or have diminished some what in tone. So people might want to know, what is my skin color? Because this product might have a greater impact on some skin tones over others. This is probably true, probably not. My facial skin color is that of a tanned brown skin-color.For the people who’ve recorded no results and have seen no visible improvement in their appearance here are some tips that I’ve carried out in hopes of ameliorating my post-acne skin condition:1) Wash your face at least twice a day (especially if you have either oily skin or medium-oily skin). I know this is difficult to do. For me, I come home after 11pm many times, and I’m too tired to brush my teeth, let alone wash my face, but this is vital in keeping up the fight for advancing the changes you want to see on your face.2) You have to allow the fade milk product to sit on your face for many hours at a time. For me, if I’m not leaving the house for whatever reason, I try to keep this on my face for AT LEAST 7-8 hours. I can keep it on for as much as 10 hours. You want the maximum effect of this item, and the only way it can do that is if you allow it contact with your face for a substantial period of time. 4-5 hours isn’t going to cut it and I wouldn’t be surprised if the results produced weren’t too noticeable or impressive.3) Ignore the “sunscreen” claim on this product. Firstly, it doesn’t tell you how much SPF is on this thing, so you don’t know how much time this fade milk is allowing you protection from the sun. Secondly, and this is important, it makes no mention of UVA and UVB protection, because it doesn’t have any. And third of all, and this is also a significant point: this has hydroquinone in it. Hydroquinone is the lightening/bleaching agent. Anybody who’s done some of the most basic research on lightening agents, like hydroquinone, knows that you’re not supposed to be out in the sun when it’s sitting on your skin. It’s counterproductive. In fact, they warn you that bleaching agents can have the opposite effect when you’re exposed to the sun, it can actually make your skin darker, not lighter. When I know that I’m going to go outside, especially for an extended period of time, I almost never use this product, and certainly never for its sunscreen purposes.4) When you sleep, sleep on your back. This goes for any product that you apply topically. I used to apply so many products on my face only to consciously sleep on my sides a few hours later. Like using bleaching agents and then exposing yourself to the sun, this also defeats the purpose. Most of the product is going to be swept away on your pillow case as opposed to being on your face, working. I know that sleeping on your back is not the most comfortable position for some people, especially if you, like me, have suffered with asthma before. First control your asthma (this is vital) and sleep on your back. This will ensure that the probability of the contents of the product staying on your face as opposed to being scraped away is higher.5) The directions instructs you to “apply a small amount as a thin layer on the affected area…” Booooooring. I usually apply a liberal amount on the hyperpigmentation spots after each time I wash my face.6) Drink a lot of water. It does not matter what product you use, using them is only part of the battle. Your skin is like a child, you have to constantly tend to it by hydrating it. I drink so much water, my urine is more clear than the polluted tap water I drink.7) Think also about purchasing a sunscreen like AMBI (Skincare Even & Clear Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30). It’s a legit sunscreen that also evens your skin tone, so that should complement this product, when you’re looking to go outside. It also contains vitamins C & E (which are important for the skin) and it’s also recommended by the Skin Care Foundation.8) For the guys, shave your face at least every other day. The facial hair catches the product as opposed to the skin, so applying this product on a face that has facial hair is not as effective as it would be if your face were smooth and free from any facial obstacles.9) Lastly, you MUST get sufficient sleep (at least 8 hours worth). Sleeping rejuvenates both your body and especially your skin. I’ve had episodes where I washed my face, coated it with facial products and then woke up some hours later, horrified with what was staring back at me. I didn’t allow my body and skin enough time to relax and recover.It annoys me when people rate products on here and yet don’t explain in details why they graded it the way they did. I rated this product four stars out of five due to my perception of this product working properly. The reason why I didn’t award it the full five stars is because this isn’t a perfect solution. You do have to give it time to work. Also, I’m not convinced that this alone will lighten your skin and diminish the post-acne marks. This is only one part of a larger process that should include both natural and supplemental means to enhance your skin’s appearance, from drinking a sufficient amount of water daily to eating healthily to using other (hopefully safe) even-toned/lightening skin products when you’re not utilizing this one, to getting a sufficient amount of sleep, etc. So this alone won’t do.The company recommends that you use it for 3 months and discontinue use if you see no apparent results. Most people aren’t going to wait 3 months, let’s face it. We live in an instant-gratification era where we want what we want when we want it. And here, we want to see results and quickly. Use this for 2-3 weeks constantly, like I advised above. Wash your face twice a day, apply this twice a day (if you can), leave it on for many hours at a time, sleep on your back (and get at least 8 hours), etc. If you don’t think you’ll be able to decipher whether or not your skin has improved, take pictures beforehand and use that as a measurement.
I have been using this product for 6 months. This product does work, my skin has lighten by 1 shade and brighten leaving me glowing. After my bath i put this lotion all over my body. You must keep using it over and over again to see results. The problem with lotion and creams is I get tired of rubbing it on. Lol.
I use to use this Fade Milk 3 years ago and it worked but can’t remember why I stopped until recently when I started using it again. I take a star off because I got a small rash on my left elbow, that’s when I remember that it use to give me rashes on my elbows. I wouldn’t recommend using this during the day if you’re going to be outside in the sun. When you’re wearing this lotion and sweat its not a pleasant feeling, it makes me feel sticky and want to shower all the time. Using it once daily before bed made a big difference and now I love it. It makes my skin feel soft and smooth, the smell isn’t bad either. In the beginning my left elbow was itchy and I got a small rash, but after a week of ignoring it, I guess my skin adopt. The lotion is white but when I shower in the morning after using it at night, the washcloth/soap sud/water have a dirty pinkish color, this only happens when I use the lotion. I would assume that’s fading my skin tone, that’s the only explanation I can come up with. Over all this lotion works in lightening the skin, as well as making skin feel smooth and well hydrated. I only use it on my body and so far my tan is lightening and my skin is slowly going back to my natural light tone. I highly recommend if you’re not allergic to hydroquinone.
I’ll stick to CeraVe
After using this I started developing little red pimple like bumps on wherever I used it. I gave it away to my sister I’ll just stick with CeraVe SA it’s a better lotion.
I use this along with the regular moisturizer and am happy with the product. I believe it helps with redness but it is not a miracle so don’t expect perfection but it does have some benefits.
Love love love this stuff
It smells pretty good does a good job with fading so I’ll be ordering more I’m almost out and it last a long time to..
While this was moisturizing, I used the entire bottle- 2 applications per day- and it did nothing to lighten my darkened elbows and knees.
