I am such a fan of Gluta-C products. I mean I tried everything in their skin care line and I must say that I have been a lover of their products since then. So, when I heard from Sampleroom that they are releasing new products in the market in new packaging, I literally felt adrenalized and immediately used my VIP points to avail samples. Fortunately, they came in full-sized at my doorstep. Wow! With that saying, this post will contain my review of the newest Gluta-C products--powder, soap and lotion.

I bet we'll raise eyebrows if we read somewhere that products like Gluta-C powder, lotion and soap contain 4x skin whitening action from Glutathione, Vitamin C, Kojic Acid and Azelaoyl Diglycinate to achieve whitening from four different angles and ensure greater efficacy. What you have heard, as we all know, are powerful skin lightening ingredients which at the same time would spark curiousity then later on, you'll find yourself purchasing those products infused with those. I guess that's what happened to me. I liked it, I bought it. Simple.

GLUTA-C WITH KOJIC+ FACE AND BODY POWDER






According to Sample Room, this powder has the following benefits: 4x Skin Whitening (combination of Glutathione, Vitamin C, Kojic Acid and Azelaoyl Diglycinate, Oil Control and Anti-Acne, Matte Finish, 3x more antioxidants (to help reduce toxins), With sunscreen.

Directions for use: Apply on face as often as desired. For best results, use Gluta-C Kojic Plus+ products to supplement the moisturizing, smoothening and whitening benefit. Use additional sun protection for extended sun exposure. Recommend to discontinue usage of other whitening brands at least two weeks before application to avoid reactions due to incompatibility. Not suitable for children below 12 years old.

The packaging of this powder reminds me of salt or pepper shakers (haha!). Many of my friends joked about it too! To be honest, I love this powder that it sets aside my interest on other powders that I own and use it instead of them. I even put this on my school bag and throw away my previous powders to use for retouch just because I find it really amazing.

The scent is okay--it's not heavily fragranced at all. I am expecting it to smell like other Gluta-C products (which smells like Green Tea I guess and which I love) but it's not. I don't mind it though. The product has a finely milled pure white talc powder that blends easily on the skin. It can create white cast upon application but it's fine since it imparts a bright effect on the skin. The result is healthy, matte skin with that radiant glow. Using it for weeks did not break me out. It does not cause clogged pores, instead it feels compatible with my current skin care which I really love. I give it a perfect 5! Whoo!

GLUTA-C WITH KOJIC+ FACE AND BODY SOAP







According to Sample Room, this soap has the following benefits: 4X Skin Whitening – combination of Glutathione, Vitamin C, Kojic Acid and Azelaoyl Diglycinate, 3X more anti-oxidants (to help reduce toxins, anti-acne, deep cleanses, revitalizes and smoothens, non-drying (essential in protecting the skin), exfoliates gently (for younger, smoother skin) and clarifies skin.

Directions for use: Apply on face as often as desired. For best results, use Gluta-C Kojic Plus+ products to supplement the moisturizing, smoothening and whitening benefit. Use additional sun protection for extended sun exposure. Recommend to discontinue usage of other whitening brands at least two weeks before application to avoid reactions due to incompatibility. Not suitable for children below 12 years old.

Since the weather is so bipolar, the combination of heat and rain ignites humidity so taking a bath more than once is like a happy time for me. It even made happier when I discovered this soap from Sample Room. It comes in a small sized box with only 60g of product inside (with an emboosed name of the brand on it) but I was amazed that it stays intact much longer than other whitening soaps in the market, still, the best way to store this is to keep it away from wet areas after shower.

This product lathers richly, cleanses the skin well without leaving it feeling dry. It did a great job in making my skin look soft, smooth, healthy and glowing. I guess with continued use, eventually, I would really achieve a noticeably fairer skin. But for now, I would just settle for bright and glowing. For best results though, use a lotion that's SPF-based to protect your skin further from harmful UV rays and darkening. Good thing, Gluta-C also released a counterpart lotion for the powder and soap!

GLUTA-C WITH KOJIC+ BODY LOTION SPF30




Directions for use: Apply on face as often as desired. For best results, use Gluta-C Kojic Plus+ products to supplement the moisturizing, smoothening and whitening benefit. Use additional sun protection for extended sun exposure. Recommend to discontinue usage of other whitening brands at least two weeks before application to avoid reactions due to incompatibility. Not suitable for children below 12 years old.

I had to always question whitening lotions without SPF on it. I mean, yeah, you could wear it and it may lighten your skin eventually but would it really help if nothing shields your skin from the sun? Make sense? The point is, I think whitening lotion and SPF shoukd always come together. Agree?

Good thing, Gluta-C With Kojic+ Face and Body Lotion comes with a whooping SPF30! What do you say, Mr. Sun? Lol. However, be reminded that this product is still a lotion and is not pure sunscreen so we may never know how much SPF concentration we may get from it so the best thing to do is still to stay away from sun's harmful UV rays or in my case, I double up SPF by putting a layer of sunscreen under or above this lotion.

This lotion smells mild too and comes in a completely-labeled packaging. All of Gluta-C products are which OC consumers like me appreciate a lot. The lotion itself is slightly thick and creamy white in consistency and texture but glides easily on the skin without leaving white cast (swatches of photos were corrupted and these were the only ones left btw). All that you will be getting is a hydrated and moisturized layer that glows on every application.

Gluta C With Kojic+ Body Lotion claims to whiten skin in as fast as one week but I know it's not true. However,to be honest, my skin lightened a tone fairer and became more healthy-looking after two weeks of continuous use. be reminded that you really have to religiously use a product to notice substantial effect. I guess nothing really works overnight, eh?

Overall Thoughts

I highly recommend Gluta-C products to everyone because they are affordable and effective for that matter. However, it contains ingredients which may have records of allergy igniters so it's best if you do some patch test first. Also, don't forget to stop using different skin care at least a week prior to using of Gluta-C products to avoid incompatibility problems. And please please please stay away from the sun even when using sunscreen!

P.S. I am slowly switching to cruely-free, organic and natural skin care. The following featured products above, though things I liked because they yield results, weren't able to get through 'my healthy standards'.

That's all, ladies! Til my next post! Happy blogging!
