Product Review: GNC Vitamin Plus GlutaBright

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

     Hello dearies! How's your day? I've been sweating a lot today and it only means summer has officially started. Do you agree? If you're excited to hit the beach and get that glowing sun-kissed skin, let me share with you my thoughts on what made my skin even toned and glowing. I hope this review will serve as a guide and a recommendation on what whitening supplement you should consider taking after getting tan this summer. Because there are so many glutathione brands in the market today, I'm sure you're already confused what to choose. Before I start the review, I want you to know that I already have a fair complexion to begin with that's why I've seen no drastic change in the whitening or lightening department overall BUT there's a significant change in the discoloration that I had after a frying incident. I've also maintained my skin tone even if I'm exposed to sun in the afternoon. If you'll ask me, I'll be satisfied with a product that will give me a positive result rather than promises even though it will take a month or two. As for skin whitening, the effect of one product varies from person to person. The length of whitening depends on the amount of melanin present in the skin. For example, dark skinned individuals need a continuous use of whitening pills for more than six months before they can see the maximum effect. So I tell you now that taking whitening pills doesn't give you an overnight result. Patience is a virtue so with continuous use, you'll see positive effects.

    Here's a review of the product that GNC Live Well Philippines sent me last February. It's the Vitamin Plus GlutaBright glutathione and this is one of their best-selling products. Vitamin Plus GlutaBright is great for keeping your skin healthy and young plus you get more free radical fighting antioxidants than the usual glutathione combinations in the market. You get GNC quality all over. When I received the product, I was a bit shocked when I saw the price but after taking it religiously for a month I can say that you get what you pay for. GNC products are known for their quality that's why I regard this product a cost-effective one. To know more about the product click CONTINUE READING and see my honest to goodness review :)

GNC VitaminPlus GlutaBright
Mustard color caplets- I used the term caplet because this is a tablet in capsule form. It's solid and there's a shiny coating outside for ease of swallowing.
GNC Vitamin Plus GlutaBright- AFTER 40 days
Here's my right hand. 40 days ago, that light brown circle you see in my hand was very dark. It resulted from the oil that ousted while I was frying my son's merienda. My apologies, I wasn't able to take the before photo. Based on the photo above, the mark has lightened and almost invisible unless you take a closer look in real life.
What I like:
  • Sealed upon purchase.
  • Comes in a handy bottle complete with product information.
  • Can pass as odourless. This supplement doesn't have that foul rotten egg smell. In my opinion, it's because of the formulation. It's in caplet form.
  • This glutathione contains Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C and Grape Seed Extract known as boosters to speed up the whitening process of the skin.
  • It also has Vitamin E, Rosehips and Collagen known as anti-aging and cell renewal supplements. 
  • I didn't experienced any discomforts like vomiting, headache, nausea, breakouts or whatsoever.
  • It made my skin glowing even if there are times that I need to stay late at night.
  • It lessened cystic pimples popping around my chin which I experience every month.
  • The color of my freckles lightened a bit while I'm taking this capsule.
  • I noticed that it lightened the dark circle on my forearm that I got while frying. The oil ousted on my hand and it left a dark mark. See the photo above.
  • Easily accessible.
  • If you have a GNC Gold Card, the price will be 20% cheaper than the original amount.
  • Batch, manufacturing and expiry date printed on the package.
What I don't like:
  • It's expensive for budget conscious individuals.
  • Contains only 250mg of Glutathione compared to other brands in the market.
  • It's a bit hard to swallow because the size of the tablet/caplet is almost the same as calcium which I believe most of my friends had a hard time swallowing too.
Will I purchase? Yes! Good thing there's a Gold Membership Card :) 

Recommendation:
     I give this a 4.25/5 rating. To those who want to achieve fair skin, I highly recommend this product because it's an overall supplement for the skin. It contains not only glutathione but it has a decent amount of Vitamin C, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Grape Seed Extract, Rosehips, Vitamin E and Collagen. This supplement not only maintained my skin tone but it served as an ant-oxidant in my body because I'm exposed to second-hand smoke from my husband and also from other stress factors in the environment. So if you smoke, drink and always stay late at night this supplement will also help cleanse the toxins from those I mentioned above in your body.

     Have you tried taking glutathione as a daily supplement? Hope you can share your experience :)

    1. Hello this is my second brand. Both brands are for reviews only so I took it for just a month. The difference on the first brand that I've tried was the glutathione content and the form (capsule vs caplet) and some of the ingredients that GlutaBright have.

  8. Yeah even if the product is expensive but is effective, people should really go for it!

    1. Hello Kat! Ganda ng bottle :) Yay, naku lagi din ako stressed sa puyat and pag-aalaga ng anak ko. I stick to the current skin care na hiyang ako. Saka nung hindi na ko masyado umiinom and nag stop mag smoke mas naging maganda skin ko. I only take grapeseed extract as maintenance and vitamin c and e naman kasi para sa fertility and bonus na yun sa skin.

    1. Yes, it's quite expensive but if you have the GNC gold card the price is the same as the competition brands in the market. Snow caps is the other brand that I've tried for review.
