Are you ‘Team Say No To Bleaching’ or ‘Team Do What You Want?”
Socialite and Casper The Friendly Ghost’s sister Bridget Achieng has launched a new bleaching product. The bleaching creme called Magic lotion will help ladies bleach at a budget. But cheap is always expensive right?
Achieng herself has been open about bleaching. She claims she used Ksh 3 million to bleach her skin. Vera Sidika, on the other hand, used Ksh 50 Million but we think they both meant Ksh 50,000.
A couple of African countries have been banning bleaching. In 2015, the Ivory Coast became the first African nation to ban skin-lightening creams, with Ghana following suit in 2017. Just recently, Rwanda just became the latest country to take aggressive action against the widespread practice of skin bleaching, now enforcing a ban on products that contain ingredients intended to lighten the skin—most commonly, hydroquinone.
Here’s how Bridget used to look like before the bleaching.
Anyway, Bridget promises that her magic creme will work in a quick 30 days. She urged women to bleach because men appreciate lighter women more. That’s not true. I actually like dark-skinned women.
In a past interview on Ebru Tv, Bridget confessed that she decided to lighten her skin so that she can truly feel beautiful.
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.
