Yeah, I had to take it off. I can definitely see the whiteness that was being talked about. It seems the skin that grows takes on the colour of the product. It will be interesting to see how it continues to develop, but for me it more embarrassing than going out with shiny lips, maybe I've gotten used to the shiny lips.
On a side note, I hate how it's very hard to judge just how much cream is going to come out. I've had it squirt a lot out a few times. I do like how it's easy to apply and doesn't rip off any skin.
