The light-skin lady

There are several bleaching creams already vanquishing melanin and helping indigenous Kenyan women get a lighter shade. Some of the more popular bleaching agents in the Kenyan market are:

1. Olay White Radiance Brightening Intensive Cream
2. Clinicians Complex 6
3. Meladerm
4. Glutathione Pills
5. Kojic Acid Soap
6. Neutrogena Fine Fairness cream
7. Clean and Clear Fairness Cream
8. Lakme Absolute Perfect Radiance
9. Loreal Paris Cream
10. Garnier White Complete cream
Caro Light Beauty Cream


And there is a new debutant into this already crowded field; afterall, even Jesus had 12 disciples. And that is a cream known as Magic Lotion. Yep, you read right, Bridget Achieng decided to name her bleaching cream “Magic”.

And she claims to be the testament of its efficacy seeing as she was the guinea pig used to test it and she claims that this was all in an effort to avail melanin destroying lotion at pocket-friendly prices.

Bridget Achieng who is currently heavily pregnant and awaiting the arrival of her baby had previously claimed she used Ksh 3 million to bleach her skin.

The result of this expensive research? A promised that the creme will work in just 30 days and urged women to bleach because men appreciate lighter women more. I guess this assertion is also made because of Vera Sidika’s “ugly duckling” experience.


“From when I was a kid I never felt beautiful because African parents never tell you that you are beautiful. I never felt loved as a kid, I will be honest. So I thought if I do it I would feel beautiful…I don’t regret anything and the attention it comes with it keeps me going. I would advise any girl (to bleach). Men will tell you to stay like that then the next day you see them in a restaurant with a light skinned girl.”
