Yes, we’ve all joined in on the conversation on how Fair & Lovely was promoting lighter complexion and how they have now decided to change the name to Glow & Lovely (what does that even mean?!) We’ve even participated in trending discussions over the topic, right? But why just Fair (Glow) & Lovely? There are so many other brands that are still slyly promoting ‘whiter’ skin tones, some even right in your face. But, somehow, we have all let them slide. No one’s talking about them because they’re probably not a trending topic yet. Let’s face it, most of us don’t really talk about anything unless we’re forced to, unless it becomes a big enough topic when not talking about it would make us look like fools. Here are some of the other skin whitening creams and products that no one is talking about – yet.
1. Lotus Herbals WhiteGlow Skin Whitening & Brightening Gel Creme SPF 25 PA+++
This has been described on Nykaa’s product page as “a revolutionary fairness solution that incorporates the advantages of a gel and a Creme. SPF 25 PA+++ formulation works effectively as a skin lightening agent.”
2. Biotique Bio Coconut Whitening & Brightening Cream
Nykaa’s product page specifies that “with regular use, skin is noticeably fairer, smoother and brighter.” Okay, thanks then!
3. Olay Natural White 7 IN ONE Nourishing Night Repair Cream
Its benefits, as mentioned on the product page, include “lightens skin tone”, so that you “wake up every morning to your natural glowing fairness”.
4. O3+ Night Repair Cream Brightening & Whitening Dermal Zone
The product page says, “O3+ Night Repair Cream dramatically reduces uneven skin tone while brightening & whitening all skin types.” So basically, irrespective of your natural skin type, you will turn into a white beauty with this product.
5. L’Oreal Paris White Perfect Clinical Overnight Treatment Cream
According to the product page, this is god’s gift to us since it “whitens skin overnight”.
6. The Face Shop White Seed Brightening Lotion
“A brightening lotion that softly covers skin with white milky fair light, the White Seed Brightening Lotion by Faceshop is a sure winner for star quality skin,” okay? You can read more of this ‘poem’ on the product page.
7. Olay Natural White Instant Glowing Fairness Skin Cream with UV Protection
This cream not only gives you “all in one fairness with an instant glow” but it also “corrects uneven skin tone” and “makes your skin tone lighter”. Sounds like a product sent by the angels, amirite?
8. L’Oreal Paris White Perfect Magic White Double Whitening Cream SPF 19
If regular whitening wasn’t enough for you, get double whitening with “magic beads and melanin vanish technology”, all thanks to L’Oreal.
9. Biotique Bio White Orchid Skin Whitening Body Lotion
Let’s give this a big round of applause for the “path-breaking innovation in skin lightening with antioxidants, multivitamins and beauty enzymes to give you a fairer, radiant and illuminated skin.”
10. Ponds White Beauty Anti Spot Fairness Day Cream SPF 15 PA++
So they claim it is specially designed to “lighten your skin tone” and give you fairer, completely-altered skin.
Most of us are guilty of exploring these ‘skin whitening options’ at least once, whether it is through a cream, Nani or Dadi’s ubtan, or even that lighter tone foundation that we think might help. These products are available in the market because there’s a demand for it. It’s really time for us to shed this ‘gore nahi toh kuch bhi nahi‘ thought process and embrace our gorgeous skins as they are.
Repeat after me:
“I am beautiful as I am. My skin is gorgeous with the glow of who I am — a happy, badass woman!”
