Bleaching Powder Versus Bleaching Cream
The basic difference between bleaching powder and bleaching cream is the preparation process. While a bleaching powder comes with a developer that needs to be added to activate the bleach, a bleaching cream comes in a convenient pre-mixed formulation that is so much easier to handle. While the strength of the bleach can be changed when dealing with bleach in powder form, bleaching creams are usually a much more milder version of bleaching powders.
If you’re a beginner dabbling with bleaching your skin for the first time, or if you are someone with sensitive skin, then you would do well to stick with bleaching creams as opposed to bleaching powders.

The Fem OxyBleach boasts of a superior oxygen-releasing formula that nourishes the skin during the bleaching process. The idea is that our skin loses much of its health and glow to day-to-day issues such as pollution and sun damage. OxyBleach effectively reverses the damage done to the skin by releasing a bout of oxygen onto the skin during bleaching, thereby leaving us with not only lighter skin, but younger and smoother skin as well. There is also a pre-bleach cream included to act as a shield against the harmful effects of the bleach.
VLCC Insta Glow Bleach
With its unique gas flushing action, the VLCC Insta Glow Bleach claims to not only lighten the skin but also to cleanse the skin by unclogging pores. This mild bleach is perfect for sensitive skin and the fact that it comes with a pre-bleach protection cream just makes it all the more appealing to us.

There are so many other bleaching creams out there, but the above mentioned ones scored high on our list because they are mild enough that they can be used on sensitive skin, but effective enough that you can see visible improvement of the skin tone.
If you are looking for a means to lighten your facial hair or to fade out dark spots or acne scars, then using a good bleaching cream once or twice a month is one of the quickest way to achieve that.
Note: While chemical bleaches will deliver good results if used correctly, care should be taken to not exceed the specified time (mostly ten minutes) as bleaches can irritate the skin if left on for longer periods of time. So be sure to take all the necessary precautions, like a patch test, to ensure that the bleach you are using suits your skin and does not have an adverse effect on it.
