After talking about some low budget lightening creams, I think it wouldn't be a bad idea to discuss some other lightening creams but a little bit expensive.
I saw this on one of my beauticians updates and I was a little bit taken aback.

I found out that half caste creams had been on board since 2010. Then I surfed the net as usual to get more information about
I don't know much about the ingredients because most of them are handmade.  A bottle or cup sells for as much as 100-200 dollars(up to 20000 naira,even up to 50000 naira). As a result, this cream has garnered much attention including mine. I have enrolled for classes, bought e-books, just to find out how to formulate this type of cream. But I have come to understand that it is plainly an extra whitening cream, just like so many whitening creams out there. I have tried some of those recipes but they many do not work. I have also come to find out that the most popular ways of attaining that half caste complexion is through the use of the following:

1. Lightening injections
They range mostly from 2,000 Naira to 45,000 Naira. These injections especially the expensive ones really work well. Some of them contain gluthathione and some other ingredients that make them potent. They are injections shot through the veins,hence if you're thinking of using it , make sure it is being done by a licensed dermatologists to prevent stories that touches the heart. When, I went to the market to enquire about the injections, I was shown different options but the sellers were quite reluctant to show me the really expensive ones. They only bring it out, if a customer specifically request for it. 

2. Serums and gels
Before the advent of organic products, there were various mixologists. Most people mixed their creams with tube gels and serums. You can agree with me that they worked, at least to a certain extent. Skin lightening has been on for as long as I can remember and serums/gels/oils were the order of the day in those days and they still work. The only difference is that the serums of this present day are more effective and safer, compared to then.

3. Lightening powders
The only trick to this is make sure you get the original powders. Do not go for quantity, go for quality. If you are new to this business, ask around for genuine suppliers and buy regardless of the price. Most powders sold in major markets are ineffective. They are sold at cheap prices but have no effect whatsoever. 
My favourite lightening powders are Symwhite, Alpha Arbutin, Snow white Gluthathione and Kojic Dipaltimate. I have also heard about Moroccan and Egyptian whitening powder but I cannot say if they are effective or not. You can try out this recipe to produce your own whitening cream. It is one of my favourites and can give you that skin tone you desire. It might not whiten you overnight but it would certainly give your skin a beautiful glow. 
Note: The results from using this recipe might differ from skin to skin. It might work for others and might not to do so for some others based on the skin type. To make your cream work better, you can combine it with  this scrub and this soap.
