Without Hydroquinone you can’t expect miracles from any of these products, and if you get any sun at all, the discoloration will come back. If your skin is tough enough for serious bleaching, HQ is the way to go but you’ll need a prescription for anything over 2%.

FINAL VERDICT – ICW (IT CAN WAIT) – Not exciting and doesn’t deliver major results, at least it didn’t for me.
