Hi Lovelies, I have another product review for you.  To be honest, I have a lot of reviews to post of products that I have used in the past few months and I assure you, it is quite a lot.

So, the Piment Doux product is a very controversial product but I have come to notice that, in the midst of a lot of controversies, there are products that do work and are not as bad as people make them out to be. Hence, my decision to try out Piment Doux. I have a review on the face cream coming up soon. I just bought it and I’ve only been using it for a few days now which is not enough to make a review about.

Piment Doux lotion comes in 3 different variants: The Lightening Body Milk, Extra Whitening Milk and the Concentree Whitening Milk.

Piment doux lightening body milk










These 3 lotions have different levels of effectiveness and depending on what you want from the lotion, you can choose out of the 3. From what I could find these are the levels of effectiveness.

  1. Lightening Body Milk – Mildest out of the 3. Does not whiten but only brightens and moisturizes the skin.
  2. Concentree Whitening Lotion – This is a concentrated lotion and seems to be the one that gives moderate skin lightening.
  3. Extra Whitening Lotion – As stated, it is the strongest of the three and is used to whiten the skin.

The lotion I will be reviewing today is the Lightening Body Milk as I am not looking to whiten my skin and based on reviews, the other lotions can be quite harsh on the skin.

My Experience: The lotion is Yellow in colour and it is the only one out of the 3 lotions that comes in a pack. The lotion and the pack is is as displayed in the picture above.
I absolutely loved this lotion. I used the lotion for almost 1 month before I stopped. The smell is wonderful, smells like milk and it does not feel heavy on my skin. Please note that I did not pro-mix this lotion with anything when I used it.

This lotion actually lightened my skin which is not so surprising but based on reviews I watched on youtube, a lot of people said it does not lighten but will only brighten and give your skin a glow, which was not accurate in my case. It lightened me by 1 shade even when I was not using it daily or regularly and I did not use it for a long period of time either. But it did glow my skin and gave me a yellow/warm undertone to my skin.

I even had someone compliment my skin about how radiant and glowing i looked which is surprising.

I liked this lotion and to be very honest, if I am ever in need of a lotion and cannot find anything to use, I will definitely consider this as a lotion.


  • Lightweight and very moisturising. As someone who has dry skin, my skin was moisturized all through the day.
  • Smells heavenly!!! Smells like sweet milk or milk with vanilla and the smell doesn’t go away either.
  • Very very affordable
  • Lightened and evened out my skin tone.
  • Can be used for both the face and body.
  • Did not make me sweat at all and that is a wonderful thing!!!


  • Gave me a yellow/warm undertone.
  • This lotion can stain your palms a bit!
  • The bottle is weird and hard to get the lotion out of. I had to transfer the lotion to a different bottle to allow me to use it better.

Rating: 4.5/5

Does PIMENT DOUX LIGHTENING MILK Contain Hydroquinone?
  • No, Piment Doux lotion does not contain Hydroquinone.
What are the side effects of Piment Doux Lotion? 
  • The main side effect for me was the staining. it stained my palms which was weird for me. So, have in mind that this lotion will stain your palms.

I really liked this lotion, I don’t think I have liked a lotion as much as I liked this in a while but I had to stop. I did not use it as regular as I could because of the staining. I hated that part of this lotion. The staining bothered me so much. Also, I’ve mentioned quite a bit about how I do not like the warm/yellow undertone on my skin. That’s another thing I did not like. Even though it was bearable with the Piment Doux Lotion, I still prefer those pale/white undertones with a pink flush on the skin.

Are you looking for a simple and mild lotion to probably maintain your skin tone and not lighten? Do you want to just brighten your skin without any issues? Do you want to brighten any form of hyperpigmentation on your skin? Do you like a yellow/warm undertone? Can you stand a bit of stain on your skin? Then you will like this lotion, I assure you.

But as for me, well, unto the next thing.

Until my next post! Kisses!
