Yes, There Is Such A Thing As Vaginal Bleaching

And we thought anal bleaching was bad!

A company in India is taking skin lightening to the extreme with the launch of the new "vaginal whitening" product Clean and Dry Intimate Wash.

The intimate wash is a "special pH-balanced formula" that promises to not only clean and protect the affected area, but also make the vajayjay lighter and brighter.

WTF!?

As if the product wasn't bizarre enough to begin with, the makers of Clean and Dry were kind enough to create a commercial to promote it.

Check it out in the clip (above) and tell us what U think!

L'Oreal Accused Of Lightening Up Freida Pinto

loreal-freida-pinto-lightened-skin-1.jpg loreal-freida-pinto-lightened-skin-2.jpg

Here we go again.

L'Oreal is under fire for allegedly lightening Freida Pinto's skin in her newest ad.

We're thinking it has something to do with the actual lighting than the beauty brand actually lightening it in Photoshop.

If you look at Freida's pictures from the red carpet (below) the color of her skin varies based on the amount of light.

What do U think???

Did L'Oreal lighten Freida's skin???

A New Skin Lightening Controversy For Elle!

elle-india-accused-of-lightening-bollywood-actress-aishwarya-rais-skin-on-january-cover-might-sue.jpg

Elle India is off to a bad start in 2011.

Like Gabourey Sidibe, the mag is being accused of lightening January cover girl Aishwarya Rai's skin and she's furious!

A source close to the Bollywood actress told the Mumbai Mirror:

"Aishwarya's first reaction was disbelief. Not in this day and age when women are recognized for their merit, and not for the color of their skin. She is currently verifying this skin-whitening allegation. If there is any proof of this, she might even take action."

Good for her!

But for Elle's sake, we're really hoping they didn't do anything especially after all that September dramz.

Elle's Editor-In-Chief Explains Gabby's Cover Controversy

elle_gabby_e1.jpg

Robbie Myers, the editor-in-chief at Elle, wants to set the record straight in hopes to end all the skin lightening accusations that are being made over Gabourey Sidibe's cover.

Myers said at the Oscar de la Renta fashion show this week:

"It's not a controversy. What's so sad about it is that people have not looked at anything else but this. There's an incredible portfolio inside that Joe [Zee] and Carter [Smith] shot . They havent looked at it. People want to make something out of nothing. It's sad the legitimate news media picks up on this."

She also explains why Gabby's skin may appear lighter on the cover, adding:

It sort of boils down to this. At a photo shoot, in a studio, that is a fashion shoot, that's glamorous, the lighting is different. The photography is different than a red carpet shot from a paparazzi.

We absolutely did not lighten her skin. Retouching is when we take a piece of hair and move it out of her eye, so you can't compare a picture on a press line from what you do in a studio, where your job is to make them look beautiful. This is their controversy. We've seen these things before. I am sad that no one has cracked the magazine and looked at it. We gave her a cover, and she loved it."

Elle's creative director Joe Zee also chimed in on why they didn't give her a full length body shot like the three other girls that appear on the October cover.

"What we loved was her behind the camera laughing and telling jokes and laughing and chuckling and I thought, That's the girl people should know. She's not Precious at all, and that's what people should know. That's what we captured in the picture and for any flak to come out of that is ludicrous, because at the end of the day it's about her personality."

Hmm, we're not sure how many people buy a fashion magazine to read about someone's personality, but whatever you say Joe.

Thoughts???

Elle Denies Lightening Gabby's Skin

gabby_elle_light_e1.jpg

Elle has quickly issued a statement denying they lightened up Gabourey Sidibe's skin on the October cover.

The statement read:

"We have four separate covers this month and Gabby's cover was not retouched any more or less than the others. We had 25 cover-worthy subjects in our portfolio and we chose Gabby because of who she is. We shot this as a story of exuberant young women changing the world. If you take a look at the portfolio, each of the women were shot in different ways and for different reasons."

And there you have it.

Do U think Elle is telling the truth???

Did Elle Lighten Up Gabby???

gabby_elle_light_e.jpg

The internet is buzzing about Gabourey Sidibe's Elle magazine cover.

People are saying the fashion magazine lightened the Precious star's skin color, and after seeing a side by side we agree.

We're sure Elle is going to say the same bullshiz L'Oreal did when they were called out for lightening Beyonce's skin, but they need to say something.

What do U think???

Filed under: Icky Icky PooBeauty Buzz

vaseline_skinwhite_e.jpg

After Vogue tried to show that dark skin is sexy, Vaseline had to go and do this!

The skincare company is playing into the idea in India that lighter skin is sexy by launching a skin-whitening application for Facebook to promote their new skin-lightening cream for men.

When downloaded, the new app will magically make users' skin in their profile pictures lighter.

The creators of the campaign, Omnicom, explain: "We started campaign advertising (for the application) from the second week of June and the response has been pretty phenomenal."

And how many of the responses have been positive!?

Thoughts???
