Hello Sophie,
Please can you do a review on caro white cream?
Here it is,
I have always been biased towards any beauty product called 'caro', and that include 'catotone' and 'carowhite'. I have not used it because I have seen the side effects on friends and relatives and it's not pleasant.

The most active ingredients in the cream include: Petrolatum, Mineral Oil, Stearic acid, Cetearyl alcohol, Isopropyl myristate, Glycerin Methryl & propylparaben, Huile de Carotte, Vit E(0.2%) Hydroquinone 2%, Aqua(eau) and Fragrance.

It is quite inexpensive and really lightens. You notice visible lightening effects between 1-2 weeks of use. Some of the most common complaints from people who have used this product include green veins,stretch marks,dark knuckles,eczema, sunburns and a whitish pale complexion. These are probably side effects of the hydroquinone.There is also no money back guarantee or a customer care center where you can make complaints. I used to think it was imported from Cotonou but it is made in Nigeria and I have no idea of the company's location.

The oil is also quite effective, so what most people do these days is to mix the oil with a different cream or use it to make a lightening cream from scratch, though I don't know if it's any better than the cream. There are better serums in the market which are safer to use and affordable .

I would rate it a 2/5 because of the price and quick lightening effects.If you are looking for an inexpensive fast action lightening cream,then you can use it but if you are looking for a safe lightening cream without much side effects, then look for better alternative.
