Review: Ishigaki-Advanced Ultrawhite-L-Glutathione

I associate Glutathione in getting rid of breakouts as well as its bonus whitening effect. Unfortunately I have a love-hate relationship with glutathione because the effect can just either be good or bad. Good when I lighten my skin or when nothing happens but bad when it made my skin sensitive or itch. I have tried Ishigaki-Advanced Ultrawhite-L-Glutathione just recently because I find it cheap, let's see how it fared.

What is it? 

Ishigaki-Advanced Ultrawhite-L-Glutathione
Having the skin tone of your dreams can do wonders not just for your physical feeling and appearance, but for your overall aura as well. Let the Ishigaki Advanced Ultrawhite L-Glutathione Capsules be your partner in perfecting your desired skin tone and your confidence as well.

L-Glutathione nutritionally supports immune function and is an effective anti-cancer supplement. It is also a highly potent free radical scavenger and enhances actions of Vitamin C. Ishigaki L- Glutathione 1000mg Capsules also supports liver health. Continuous usage may make your skin smooth and fairer. This Free Form Reduced Glutathione aids in increased cellular absorption and action, making it a physician quality immune and detoxification supplement.

Benefits of L-Glutathione:

There are fake Ishigaki glutathione in the market today so be sure to buy from trusted sellers.

Instruction for use: Take 1 capsule + 500 mg Vitamin C twice a day. You can take it 30 minutes before or after eating. You can use any kind of Vitamin C as long as it is 500 mg twice a day.

This gets a thumbs up for the sealed plastic packaging.

I take one Ishigaki capsule with Rhea Ascorbic Acid every night. Just like what they say, an authentic Ishigaki-Advanced Ultra White will smell like rotten egg but it doesn't matter much really because taking the capsule only takes seconds. My only complaint is that its too big to swallow.

To start with, I have naturally fair skin. What I dislike about my skin is that it is dull. And I want to have a glowing and healthy looking complexion. I barely noticed the change after a month. I guess I have to take more.

How much and where to buy?
I got in on sale in Shopee for P950 for 60 capsules.

What I love
  • Price wise this is cheaper than my old glutathione capsule favorite.
  • It comes with plastic seal and other seal onside
  • Stinky rotten egg smell which means its authentic 
  • Skin has a bit glow after taking Ishigaki 
  • There was no changes in my skin tone 
  • Batch, manufacturing and expiry date printed on the package. There's also the TDC initials embossed at the bottom of the bottle packaging and this is one proof that the product is authentic. 
What I don't
  • Capsules are too big to swallow
  • I'm not sure if its BFAD approved
  • Available only online
  • I became more prone to breakouts after taking them I might be allergic to ALA (Alpha Lipoic Acid).
Will I repurchase? 
Contemplating if I should.

So that's it for Ishigaki-Advanced Ultrawhite-L-Glutathione, its something that gave me a faint glow but also broke me out. I guess we are not meant to be, lol. I will still continue in taking glutathione in the future but for detoxification process only. I have started going to the derma recently and she advised me not to take gluta anymore.

Review: Glutaredox L-Glutathione

In the Philippines we can't deny the fact that the best selling skincare products are usually those with whitening effect! Girls just love to be fair skinned nowadays that is why there is a big demand for whitening products which include glutathione. Glutathione can either be taken orally or through gluta IV injectibles. Gluta IV is said to take effect so much faster than oral glutathione but how about if its a sublingual glutathione? Will it be possible for a tablet to replace IV administered Glutathione ? This is the promise of Glutaredox L-Glutathione Sublingual Lozenges offered by Oxina.

What is it? 
Oxina is a baby brand that is associated an award-winning online shop has been providing top products for beauty and wellness since 2006. The flagship product that Oxina is currently carrying is called Glutaredox.

GLUTAREDOX, a groundbreaking supplement that gives the same effect of a glutathione injection in a simple sublingual tablet. It has a patented formulation containing a high concentration of Reduced Glutathione, Vitamin C, Selenium and L-Cysteine along with its Oro-FS-Release technology assures of 100% absorption rate which makes it superior to others.

Given its special formulation and innovative route of administration, Glutaredox Oro-FS-Release ensures maximum bioavailability of reduced glutathione in all areas. 

Here are some of its unique benefits:
• Maximum oral absorption of glutathione
• High bioavailability of reduced glutathione
• With Scientifically-based studies of formulation
• Major detoxifying agent
• Cell cycle regulator
• Immune system modulator

Its in a box instead of plastic bottles which made it environmental friendly. Each box comes with 5 aluminum foil blister packs. One blister pack contains 6 tablets so 1 box is good for a month.

The product is patented in Italy that is why the language on the box is in italian. Hopefully they can provide an english guide and/or ingredient list in the near future.

Glutaredox is said to be a hassle free glutathione in tablet form. Well its not really my first time to take glutathione but the ones I've tried are all in capsule form. What sets Glutaredox aside besides being in a tablet form and taken sublingually is the facet that I only need to take just one capsule a day! Just one capsule means its economical and affordable. Good thing that the effect won't suffice because of the sublingual method used which actually means you'll get 100% glutathione absorption because there will be no digestive and excretory barriers.

Truth to be told was when I first took Glutaredox I forgot that it should be taken sublingually and I've chew it like Bonamin! I've never tried taking sublingual tablets before but I've read that the tablet should be under the toungue. The sublingual method as well as the formulation allows Glutaredox  to immediately take effect and raise the body's glutathione levels in just a matter of hours.

I've just finished the 2 months supply and I couldn't be any more satisfied. During my first week of taking it I really felt light and energized. It just felt different to take the tablet under the tongue but I got used to it after a while. I didn't notice the instant effect after just taking one tablet but my skin is finer now and I stopped breaking out easily. I also noticed that my pimple marks is gradually lightened. I can't attest with the anti-aging but the anti-oxidant property is very good.

How much and where to buy?
A 30 days supply is only P1800 and you can easily purchase them at Oxina.
EDIT: The price will revert to its original price: P2380 starting this February)

What I love

  • My skin lightened and its evident on my face
  • I feel light and fresh when I was taking it
  • Budget friendly compared to other brands in the market
  • Nature friendly packaging
  • Safe for sensitive skinned gals
  • Initial and eventual alternative to Gluta IV shots
  • Potent formula with maximum oral absorption
  • I only need to take one tablet a day and I'm good to go
  • Can be taken even without Vitamin C
  • Powerful antioxidant and it also has anti-aging properties
  • I seldom get breakouts now
  • FDA approved

What I don't

  • You can only purchase it online as of now.

Will I repurchase? 
There is a possibility that I will because I like to detox using Glutathione supplements.

For me, Glutaredox L-Glutathione Sublingual Lozenges can be your best bet as an alternative to Gluta IV shots. Give it a go and see how it fares for you. I want to thank the sublingual method for the fast results it gave me and Oxina for letting me try it. I am pleased with the results!

Awesome product. Any questions? Let me know if the comments!

Review: Gluta-White Glutathione Skin Whitening Capsule

Annyeong beauties! I only drink Gluta White capsules when I am stressed out and too busy on my day to day activities to detoxify myself. Well after a few research, I've known that Glutathione does help in reliving chronic stress.

Chronic stress is the response to emotional pressure suffered for a prolonged period of time in which an individual perceives he or she has little or no control. Credits
Glutathione is a triple threat to toxins. It neutralizes free radicals, enhances the immune system and detoxifies the liver. Credits

Thus my reason on taking Gluta-White. So how did it fare?

 Gluta-White Glutathione Skin Whitening Capsule

Potent Anti-Oxidant
Cell Repair and Regenerator
Immune Booster
Sport Supplement
Skin Lightener

How to Use: For beginners, we do recommend that you start off with 1 capsule per day of GlutaWhite 100mg and slowly increase your dosage 100mg per week until you have reached the recommend dosage of 20mg per kilogram of body weight. 

  • Remember it is required to take GlutaWhite only after every breakfast and lunch with a full glass of water together with an equal or higher dosage of Vitamin C to prevent gastric irritation. 
  • Desired results will probably take 3-4 months of use depending on the persons general health, lifestyle and skin tone. 
  • GlutaWhite is Generally Safe with pills and will not disrupt regular menstrual cycle. For men and women ages 16 and up!
  • GlutaWhite is best taken with SureChoice Sodium Ascorbate (Vitamin C). The rule of thumb is to take an EQUAL or slightly higher dose of SureChoice Sodium Ascorbate.

Its FDA Approved, PIPAC Tested, GRAS Certified and manufactured By Am-Europharma Corp. 

I buy them by 10's. So I get them in foil packaging. However its also available in box, which means you will be buying a lot. Since I am buying them not for the reason of whitening let's leave it at at least 20-30 pcs only.

Its not my first time to take Gluta-White, I take it month after another when I feel I need to detoxify. Taking Gluta-White is easy because its in easy to swallow capsule form. It doesn't have a minty after take feeling in my throat and it doesn't make me palpitate. I also don't experience headaches or other negative reactions.

I only take the 100mg because I believe that minimal amount taken is more effective. As instructed you may add up another 100mg every week until you reach 500mg in which you can the glutathione capsules for at least 4-5 months to get whitening results. I do not reach that point yet though, whitening is a serious and take note, expensive business. I might just do with soaps at the moment but I am pretty contented with the 100mg capsules.

What does 100 mg Gluta-White does to me? Well ever since I took it I get less pimples on my chin and cheeks. I am near my red days but I am still not breaking out and I even have better skin nowadays. Take note that I am not using any other special products now except Gluta-White. I also have increased metabolism that is why I feel light, which is good.

How much and where to buy? 
Php 17.50 each at Mercury Drug Store

What I love 
  • Cheap
  • Possible to buy retail
  • No reverse reactions
  • No palpitations
  • No minty feeling on throat
  • Easy to swallow
  • Detoxifies
  • Increased metabolism
  • Brighter skin
  • Pimples gone
  • Less breakouts before my red days

What I don't 
  • Doesn't whiten skin because its only 100mg

Will I repurchase? 
Yes. I buy this in an occasional basis already.

For regular detoxification Gluta-White Glutathione Skin Whitening Capsule can be a good skincare buddy. It just works and its cheap. If for the purpose of whitening I recommend their 500mg variant. This is safe and at the same time good for the skin way to detoxify.

I agree to Gluta-White's tag line now, its indeed the SECRET to a Younger, Healthier and Glowing You!!!

Review: Gluta Nano Plus 900k

I would love to eat Ice cream cake as of this moment (Bake & Churn Ice cream cakes anyone?) Its on and off rain and sun lately. Its a good thing actually because its not so humid unlike last week.

For today I would be reviewing a Thailand product I have bought. Gluta Nano Plus 900k is a pretty popular product and reading other user's positive feedback convinced me. I hopped on and bought one bottle. I am very eager to take advantage of their buy 3 bottles for P1000 but boyfie pulled me back and says I should try it first. Glad he said it.

Come on now, this is so cheap compared to the first gluta products I have tried before. Crossing fingers, I was hoping that it will work on me!

What is it? 
Gluta Nano Plus 900k is a glutathione supplement which is for whitening and v shape face.
Let us forget about the v shape face, because I want chubbier cheeks now.

Rose hip extract
High Vitamin C
Hyaluronic acid
Berry Extract

Pregnant or Lactating Women and person who are taking medications should consult a health care professional before using. If any adverse reaction occue discontinue use and consult a health care professional. 

Imported and distributed by:

Simple plastic bottle packaging with a secure seal.

They say that Gluta Nano Plus 900k uses Nano technology to fit in 900,000mg of gluta in just one capsule. One bottle has a mix of collagen capsules as well which is not mentioned in the bottle.

I have high hopes for this product. I had a warm feeling in my throat when I  took one capsule. I take one capsule every night and I feel the same warm feeling every time. I have also noticed that my skin is a bit darker than before, which is weird because its supposed to whiten or brighten because it was gluta. I do not expose my skin to the sun as well. in case you might be wondering.

After around 3 days I experienced itchiness on my skin. |I endured this for 2 weeks, thinking that maybe it will subside and just my initial reaction to the product. However it was really bad and I was scratching my skin all over, it left dark marks :(

I have also experienced palpitation during my usage of gluta nano capsules. Which is scary because it did not happened to me before. After 2 weeks I stopped using it to let my skin heal from all the itch and marks. I asked my sister if she would like to try it since there is still left capsules.  However we both had the same reaction: palpitation and warm feeling when taking the oral gluta.

How much and where to buy? 
P350/bottle from online shops and in Pop-up store in Trinoma

What I love 

What I don't 
Gave me itchy skin
Warm feeling when taking the capsules
Not effective

 Will I repurchase? 

I will be more cautious on taking glutathione from now on. And yes maybe the price speaks for the product itself, I felt bad for getting dark marks. Good thing I was able to get rid of those using my whitening soap. Gluta Nano Plus 900k did not work on me but its great if it works wonder on your skin. Remember that works on me might not work for you, and vice versa.


My road to whitening continues~
Care to share a glutathione product you use? I wonder which whitening cream I try next? My face is darker than my body. Fuhuu~

HELLO VENUS - Glow is a new song that can be a great jam during a rainy day~
Tomorrow is Monday!

Review: Block & White Ultima Whitening Soap

Ayo Sweeties!
Thank God its Sunday! I love weekends, too bad it only lasts for 2 days! Teehee.
So today is another whitening soap review. I can't help it. Haha. I think I need something to whiten spots I got from my skin allergy last time. I know how effective kojic soap is in whitening but I just can't use it because I get small bumps whenever I try. Plus it is too harsh for my face. After years of trying different products I came to realize that only gentle products should be used when it comes to face.

Looking at the soap racks I saw Block & White Ultima Whitening Soap. I remember how other gtalkers raved on the effectiveness of the B&W Ultima Lotion. I was sold on its claim that it whitens as early as 5 days. Who doesn't want fast results right?

What is it?
Block & White Ultima Whitening Soap is a Glutathione based soap that claims to give results in just 5 days.

White with gold design box. Seems to be a box for a luxury soap for me!
At the back, you'll see more of its claims and ingredient list.I bought it for whitening but it also has anti-aging properties which is a bonus.

One thing worth noting is that it smells nice! I am not good at describing scent but it is something feminine. The soap does contain visible gentle exfoliating scrubs (no visuals!) I don't think it helps with anything unless you are going to hardly rub the soap into your skin?

Besides being said that the soap contains skin moisturizers, my skin still feels kinda tight after usage. I notice some glow as well which is something I like!

How much and where to buy?
I can't remember how much but it is less than a hundred for a box.

What I love 

  • The scent!
  • Affordable

What I don't 

  • Quite drying 
  • Did not whiten spots

If you have ultra sensitive skin, I do not recommend drying soaps for your face.

Will I repurchase? 
No. It is not effective for me.

Block & White Ultima Whitening Soap is just an ordinary soap for me. It did not gave any whitening effect on my dark spots or complexion like promised. I'm still looking for other means to whiten my skin~

After finishing all of my bb cream tubes I am now I am looking for a new affordable BB cream to try :)
