Total Nonscents ultra-gentle brightening antiperspirant

Total Nonscents ultra-gentle brightening antiperspirant

I have been using "Total Nonscents" for almost a month now, and I can see my underarm darkness gradually fading away for the first time in years! My discoloration began as a teenager. I use to shave to remove the hair from my underarms resulting in red "itchy" patches of "irritation". I used depilatory creams to remove the hair (hairs grow back softer-no itching). Now a pro at this method of hair removal-it doesn't erase the scars from the past. The transition was rough, leaving the cream on for too long at times caused "inflammation & irritation"-red raw patches. As a result, I would get dark patches under my arms once the "irritation" healed-deodorants added to the problem with more stinging & burning in both cases! I still wore tank tops etc. I didn't find it embarrassing at all- I'm a woman of color & most of us get dark spots & blemishes. Its way more embarrassing to have "hair" under your arms than "dark spots", where I come from. However, I eventually began to admire the celebrities/models- & their "even toned underarms" on TV, movies & magazines and I'd wonder, "How did their underarms get so smooth & pretty?" Finally, I saw this product online & thought "EXPENSIVE-but worth a try". This product actually works. My problem lasted for years but I think in a few months my underarm darkness will actually be gone. EXPENSIVE but well WORTH it!
