Why do fading creams from the ethenic beauty section smell so awful?

So I tried out a fading cream to reduce some dark spots on my face and they work but damn why do they smell so bad. And I know they work because some spots I have are like way better after 3 weeks and the isle for fade cream is always like almost empty. So black ladies do you use fade creams and like how well do they work over like a long period of time? Also how do you like mask that smell?

  • I've never used one, but I think they smell awful b/c of the chemicals they have to use in the product. anything that can take the pigmentation off ur skin must be strong and powerful and probably won't smell like roses.

    maybe u can mask it by applying the fade cream first, waiting several minutes for it to sink in and then applying a normal moisturizer over it
