Carowhite Review: What Nobody Will Tell You!


You might be wondering what I have to offer because a lot of people has already jumped on this topic. This isn't just about "CaroWhite Review" it's about my personal experience with this product.

Carowhite lotion is a skin-lightening product. It contains lightening ingredients such as beta carotene, vitamins A and E which are known for reducing hyperpigmentation, dark spots removal, and evening out skin tone.

Like most skin lightening creams, Carowhite's ingredients can make your skin a few shades lighter than natural. It lightens your skin thanks to beta carotene which adds a yellowish tint to the skin. 

I don't doubt the potency of Carowhite, I just get suspicious of any cream with the words white, claire, or tone in its name. My brain immediately tells me it's a bleaching cream. 

When someone tells me they use Carowhite, I’m thinking, "so you're trying to bleach your skin" and in most cases, it's just my mind messing with me.

But some people are absolutely in love with Carowhite that they don't care what anyone says. 

Carowhite may not be exactly what you think it is, and I mean that in a good way. Most of us have used it.

I did too, one time and I can tell you my skin looked flawless for the first 3 weeks. My skin was glowing and I loved it. 

I could go out without makeup and not worry about if my skin was 'perfect' enough, it was.

But I noticed a trend with lotions like Carowhite, your skin sort of gets used to it like the product stops working at some point.

In my second month with Carowhite, that glow was gone so I discontinued. My sister didn't and yes, her skin looks amazing even till now.

Does Carowhite contain hydroquinone?

Carowhite contains 2% hydroquinone as one of its ingredients. This is why most people consider it a bleaching cream.

Hydroquinone is a highly potent chemical that is prescribed for a maximum of three months to treat hyperpigmentation, blackheads, blemishes, freckles, melasma, pimple marks, and acne scars. 

It is an active ingredient designed to prevent excessive melanin production. It's a key ingredient in skin whitening creams.

In essence, any product containing hydroquinone should be treated in the same manner as a prescription medication.

It should not be used for a long time because it can lead to abuse and eventually, side effects.

Trust me when I say, many people are not even aware that Carowhite contains hydroquinone, while others are only concerned about making their skin tone lighter.

My advice? Before using any product, check the labels and ingredients. Your skin could be allergic to certain chemicals and you'd never know if you don't pay attention to the labels.

Learn about the ingredients and what they do. This will save you the trouble of dealing with any side effects that arise. So you don't go running around trying to fix your skin. 

If you didn't know, any product containing hydroquinone is an enemy of the sun and heat. Avoid sunlight while using this cream or use it only at night.

That's one of the things I observed when I was using Carowhite, I'd sweat like I was working out or something.

So you don't want to rub Carowhite and walk under the scorching sun, it's an unpleasant experience.

But, Carowhite Soap and cream give really good-looking skin if used moderately and for a short period.

When you've got the skin you want, maybe a few shades lighter, you then look for a milder cream that will maintain the results you've achieved with it, like a moisturizer.

You wouldn't want to keep pumping hydroquinone on your skin and expect flawless skin. That's unhealthy.

Carowhite before and after results

Before we pass our judgment, let's hear what users have to say about Carowhite. Is it good like most people claim or just some over-hyped bleaching cream?

Mary a reviewer says "Carowhite is probably the most underrated cream. It works fast and my skin changed within a week, unlike other overrated serums and moisturizers.

The fragrance is mild and does not irritate the skin. I love the formula, I don't think I'll stop using Carowhite."

I'll always use Carowhite because it does exactly what it should, even my skin tone. I have combination skin, so I'm always looking for products that aren't oily and are also SPF-free. Caro white is all of that and more," says Tasha

Clara, " I've been using Carowhite for months now and everything was great until a few weeks ago. I started having breakouts and I think my skin is reacting to an ingredient in my cream. What should I do?

Jane "My best friend uses Carowhite and her skin looks amazing but when I tried it for a few days, I had sunburn, I'm staying off Carowhite for now."

Carowhite ingredients

Hydroquinone (2%), Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, Stearic Acid, Glycerin Methyl, Cetearyl Alcohol, Isopropyl Myristate, Propylparaben, Huile de Carotte, Vitamin E (0.2%), Aqua, Fragrance

Carowhite Lotion side effects

As with most products, not everyone gets the same results. Side effects of Carowhite include:

  • Eczema 
  • Pimples
  • Sunburn
  • Greenish veins
  • Stretch marks
  • Dark knuckles.
  • Pale complexion.

Carowhite lotion benefits

  • Even skin tone.
  • Removes freckles
  • Removes skin blemishes.
  • Removes dark spots.

What happens when you stop using Carowhite?

If you stop using Carowhite maybe due to the side effects you experienced, your skin will gradually return to its original self.

The best treatment for your skin after you've bleached it is to just let it heal on its own. Your skin can heal and produce melanin to make up for the one you lost to bleaching.

Is Carowhite Good for dark skin persons?

If you're a melanin beauty like me, you should stay away from anything that could alter your beautiful skin.  Not everyone's skin can tolerate that 2% hydroquinone content, and having dark skin increases the risk of skin damage such as hyperpigmentation.

Nevertheless, there are a few tips and tricks for using Carowhite safely, one of which is mixing the cream with other products just to dilute the ingredients and make it milder on your skin.

If you're dark-skinned and want to use Carowhite, mix it with vitamin E serum or oil, as this will not only protect your skin but will also help reverse skin damage (if any).

Glycerine mixed with Carowhite also gets the job done.

Which is better; Carowhite, Caro fresh, or Carotone?

These creams have similar names but don't make the mistake of thinking they're the same. Caro fresh, Carowhite, and Carotone don't function the same way.

Carofresh is a skin-lightening cream. It contains carrot extract and vitamin E. These two ingredients work together to not just make your skin glow but also rejuvenate the skin. Plus, beta carotene in the carrot extract helps protect your skin from sun damage. So Carofresh is a good one to try out. 

Caro white and Carotone both contain 2% hydroquinone in their ingredients. Technically, Carowhite and Carotone can bleach your skin due to their hydroquinone content if abused.

So to answer the question of which is better, I'd say if you want that glowing tint on your skin and you're patient enough, use Caro fresh. 

If you must use Caro white or Carotone, it should be moderate. Apply it like a prescription drug (which is what hydroquinone is) for a short time, get the desired results, and then switch to something milder.


Carowhite cup or lotion; which one is better?

Caro white be it cup or lotion, contains the same ingredients. But maybe you've noticed you sweat more when you use the lotion?

Well, the difference is in their moisturizing capacity. The Carowhite cup is thicker and more moisturizing which makes it perfect for oily skin. So if you have oily or normal skin, stick to the Caro white cup cream. It'll add moisture to your skin and not oil.

Does Carofresh lighten the skin?

Yes, Carofresh contains vitamin E and beta carotene, these are natural ingredients popular for making the skin lighter.

How Much Is Caro White Lotion In Nigeria?

The prices of Carowhite differ according to size.

The small size goes for N750, the medium size costs N850 while the big size costs N1300.

How good is Caro white lotion?

Caro White is a great choice if you want to achieve clear skin. It evens out skin tone leaving you with flawless skin.

How do I know the original Caro white?

There may be fakes out there so you should know what the original Carowhite looks like.

The original Carowhite lotion has both English and French written on the back of the container but the fake one only has English written on it.

Where can I buy Carowhite?

The original cream can be purchased online from reputable vendors on Jumia or Konga. Or you can get it from reputable cosmetic shops, just be sure you're buying the original.


Carowhite is a good lotion with quick action. If you have acne or blemishes, using Carowhite will clear it in a matter of days. But all products containing hydroquinone should be used moderately. 

Hydroquinone can bleach your skin and that's not healthy. Plus, Carowhite will make you very sweaty even with little exposure to the sun.

So, to be on the safe side, use Carowhite only for a short time to maybe clear pimples or something and then switch to a mild lotion. 

Or better still, mix Carowhite with vitamin E serum or glycerin. That'll reduce its concentration and subsequently, its harsh side effects.
