  1. How idiotic the comments about ‘changing the color of your skin’, this is obviously meant for US people like me, who have melasma..or red blotchy skin, that embarrasses us.

  2. I just poured my heart and soul into that 6th comment and it didnt freaking submit!!!

  3. This isn’t about people changing their skin color, its about us ladies wanting to
    get rid of age spots, tan lines. We want our skin tones to blend.
    I had my first age spots when I was about 37, I had to go out and spend a lot
    on an expensive cream. Wished I’d known about this then.

  4. I love how i was able to fade away some of my freckles. i am a freckle queen and i have tried for years trying stuff that might work besides surgery! worked gr8 !!!!

  5. its not about changing the color of your skin…its bleaching away imperfections. For example, from a lot of sun exposure when I was young I have a harsh tan line on my hands in which they are darker than the rest of my arms, and so if I can help lighten them up to return them close to my natural color it would be great!

  6. I have tried this without the white wine (only because I was not aware you could use it). It does work helps fade freckles, and brown blotches on the skin, no major skin changes if rubbed on dry cracked heels & elbows it keeps them soft. I think it is a great idea, and now I will add the white wine since I found out you could. Thank You!

  7. Mmmmm……I’m not sure if it’s sensible or appropriate to be encouraging people to change the colour of their skin. We’re living in the 21st century now.
