‘Authentic’ O’tentika || Pink label lotion VS Brown label lotion

Hey lovelies, anno it’s been quite some time and I hope the month of August has been an awesome one for y’all?
Oh well! Lemme get down to business. I guess the title of this post says a lot already.
Anno a number of people including myself that have had serious breakout problems with using the pink label otentika lotion but only until recently did I find out the reason for that.

Apparently, The reason why most people complain about having breakouts from using the pink label otentika lotion is because it’s been formulated for people with dry skin, so it’s an extra oily formula while the brown label otentika is formulated for people with combination/oily skin and it’s a less oily formula.
So if you have combination or oily skin on your face, it’s recommended you use the brown label otentika lotion. Applying the pink label otentika lotion on combo/oily skin will likely lead to breakouts, acne spots and blackheads because it contains an extra oily formula needed to moisturise, soften and tone dry skin.
After downing that information, I decided to go ahead and get a bottle of the brown label otentika lotion since I have combo skin and I just love the otentika skin care range of product. I purchased a bottle of the brown label otentika lotion from the popular ‘mama tega’ store in yaba for #2800 but it’s also available in most superstores in Nigeria.

I’ve been using it up to 3weeks now and…. voila! I’m not breaking out in anyway. My skin has stayed soft, supple and blemish free.
I love the otentika skin care range because
* it has a signature scent that tingles and relaxes your senses,
* it’s an all organic product range containing no sulfates, no hydroquinone, no Mercury, no steroids. All ingredients listed are simply organic,
* it ensures an all round smooth and well blended complexion.
So if you’re an otentika lover as well and have had issues with the pink label otentika lotion, I suggest you try out the brown label otentika lotion and hopefully thank me later 😉

Have you also had breakout problems with the ‘pink label’ otentika lotion? Anyone else tried the brown label otentika lotion? Lemme know in the comment section as I’m always excited to read your comments, questions and suggestions :*

    1. Hello Babe, both of the o’tentika lotions are good for lightening the skin about 1 shade. It you want to get lighter 2-6 shades then other products would be more appropriate. Thank you so much for reading this post. xo

  1. I bumped into your review on O’tentika. I just purchased the pink bottle.I was wondering of I could continue with it because my skin tends to be extra extra dry especially my hands and legs but for my face I am a tiny bit oily around the T-zone area. do I still need to get the brown bottle?

    And what soap can I pair with it except from the otentika soap because I can’t find that in my current location.

    1. Hello Nadu, I suggest you try adding the o’tentika serum to the lotion and see if that improves the dry skin condition (if serums don’t make you break out). If you notice any break out I suggest you discontinue its use. I also suggest using plain black soap. It does wonders for the skin. Thank you so much for reading this post. xo

    1. Okay Josie, idk about Ghana but here in Nigeria, o’tentika products come with a scratch pin to confirm the products authenticity. You shld also try to buy from trusted stores/super Marts cos they usually try to get their products directly from the company. I hope this helps you. You can always holla for more information. Thank you. xo

  8. Hi Nelly, I stumbled on your post and I’m really glad.
    Been using O’tentika for quite some time now and I haven’t had any regret until recently. Wanna know if i bought a fake product cuz its nonot oily as usual, its kinda thick and the pink on the bottle is a bit like red-pink, not the normal pink. I discontinued the use after a week+ cuz i was getting darker.
    What do you think, please?.
    Thanks.

I understand the Skintone formula(brown) is for normal to oil skin, of which I have normal skin although my face is oily. I am light skinned and to maintain and improve my skin tone, which from the brown otentika or the pink otentika will be best for me. Pls this is really urgent. Thank you

    1. Hey Ellify, thanks a lot for your comment and question. Do you intend to get lighter or just to maintain your skin tone? if its just to maintain your skin tone then the brown o’tentika is a good option. if you intend to get brighter/lighter then there are other options. do holla back! xoxo

      1. Hi Nelly, please I intend to get lighter. What cream do you suggest I use. I tend to be oily around my tzone. I was thinking of buying the otentika lotion. The pink pack. Please which do you think I use. I need a lighter cream. Presently I use fair and white. The pink pack. But it’s turning dark in the bottle. Learnt it’s cos it contains hydriquinone.

        1. hey pearl, you’re right all fair and white products contain about 1.9% hydroquinone. Anyway, there are a lot of creams available in the market that could make you lighter but depending on your budget. Anew kojic lotion works but with a slow pattern, you would have to use about 2 bottles before effects are visible. it goes for about #3000 in stores. other more expensive options include meladerm, makari (original one), QEI (carrot), nature white, glutamax, gluta wink white lotion. i hope this helps. you can always holla back for more info. xo
