I knew it was only a matter of time until leading whitening brand Gluta-C would have its own Kojic Acid-based whitening line.
Introducing… the Gluta-C with Kojic Plus Whitening System!
What sets the Gluta-C with Kojic Plus Whitening System from others is the fact that ALL products in this range has 4x skin whitening action from Glutathione, Vitamin C, Kojic Acid, and Azelaoyl Diglycinate.
First we have the Gluta-C with Kojic Plus Face and Body Soap (P59.75 for 60g). Just like in any skincare regimen, this is the first step. You have to cleanse.
The Gluta-C with Kojic Plus Face and Body Soap deep cleanses, revitalizes, and exfoliates yet doesn’t dry out the skin. It’s recommended that you use this twice a day. What I like about this soap is it evens out skin quicker compared to most other whitening soaps. I’m not a fan of the scent though, so thank goodness it doesn’t last long lol. I should add that since this soap contains Azelaoyl Diglycinate, it also treats pimples.
After cleansing, we go right to moisturizing with the Gluta-C with Kojic Plus Body Lotion SPF 30 (P219.75).
The lotion’s consistency is thick and creamy. It smells the same as the soap. It’s for body use only.
It does spread quite easily though.
Wow, it sure is absorbed quickly! I love that it has SPF 30 so I don’t need a separate sunscreen for daily use. Is it just my imagination or is my skin whiter already? It does leave an overall white cast on the skin surface so there is an instant whitening effect. Whiter skin will be more evident with prolonged use.
The product that interested me most was the Gluta-C with Kojic Plus Face and Body Powder (P74.75). I’ve seen and tried a lot of whitening soaps and lotions… but powder? This is definitely a first.
This is actually for both face and body. It promises not only to whiten but to control oil and leave you with a matte finish.
I was so intrigued by the product that I also tested it on my face. I just dispensed some on my palm and patted all over my face. I was surprised by how light it felt. The texture is more similar to loose powder rather than baby powder. I was expecting it to be like the latter so I couldn’t really imagine putting it on my face. But it is actually pretty okay as a no makeup day face powder to keep you looking fresh.
What I like about Gluta-C with Kojic Plus Face and Body Powder:
- It delivers on its promise to control oil. I applied it in the morning and by noontime, my skin was still matte and shine free.
- It’s convenient to bring along as it comes in a slim and handy container.
- The scent isn’t as strong as the soap’s and lotion’s.
- There is an instant whitening effect which I attribute to the powder’s white color.
- It feels light on the skin so it’s easy to forget you have it on.
- It didn’t cause any adverse reactions.
- When applied to the body, it makes me feel fresh.
Downside? Well since it doesn’t come with a puff or brush, it can be tricky to apply on the face. The powder’s texture is very easy to work with though. I don’t recommend mixing it with make-up as it might cause color and texture changes with your overall look. I’d use this on days when I’m makeup-free. Please note that the Gluta-C with Kojic Plus products are not suitable for children ages 12 and below.
Gluta-C with Kojic Plus products are available at SM Supermarkets and Watsons store nationwide.
