Extract Cream (Lightening and brightening papaya calamansi lotion)

Extract cream helped me maintain my skin color and protected my skin from harmful UV rays. Extract cream is a very good cream for skin lightening. It contains sunscreen (SPF10, not much but something) which makes it very effective as a good cream to use in the tropical Nigerian sun.

I used this extract cream sometime last year when I was searching for cheap creams under ₦3000 to use. Though extract cream is marketed as a skin lightening cream, it didn’t lighten my skin. It only helped maintain my skin color. My complexion was the same but not dull. But a friend complained to me that it bleached her skin even though she’s a bit lighter than me. She said when she stopped using it, her skin became darker, and she had hyperpigmentation. So I guess it works differently for different skin types.

If you are about to buy this cream or you just bought it, do not use it without reading this review, so you’ll know if it’s for you.
