Product Review: Glupa Whitening Lotion

Sunday, December 21, 2014

   Hi dearies! Here's my honest to goodness review of Glupa Whitening Lotion. I've emptied the bottle of this lotion only last week because I don't use it everyday. It took me around two months because I use the lotion every other day or when I feel like using it. There are days that I prefer not to use this 'instant white/concealing' lotion because I perspire a lot if the weather is scorching hot. 

     I guess that's the only downside of this product if you're like me who sweat a lot. BUT the product works like magic if you really want to achieve that 'instant white skin' in minutes :) With continued use the product does not only gives that 'instant white effect' because it does lighten and whiten dark marks. It also contains anti-aging ingredients that I'm sure those who have tight budget will surely like this product as it functions as 2-in-1 (whitening and anti-aging) lotion in a bottle.

Product Review: Glupa Whitening Lotion
What I like:
  • Affordable.
  • The scent is not overpowering, it smells like one of those VS body mist.
  • It has a semi-thick/runny consistency.
  • Made my skin soft and smooth to touch after use.
  • It has an INSTANT WHITE effect.
  • It moisturizes my skin instantly.
  • I noticed that it lightened some of the insect bites on my legs in less than two weeks of use.
  • Easily accessible.
  • Contains powerful ingredients like Arbutin,  Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Glutathione, Papaya and Claire Blanche. Combination of whitening and anti-aging essentials in a bottle.
  • A little goes a long way.
  • Non-greasy and no heavy feel once applied.
  • Hypoallergenic and Dermatologist tested.
  • Batch, manufacturing and expiry date printed on the bottle.
What I don't like:
  • It has only spf 15, one of the lowest I've seen in a whitening lotion but it's better than none. 
  • Application is tricky. It has a concealing effect and if I'm in a hurry, I tend to over blend it so streaks of white lines are really noticeable in my skin.
  • The instant white effect wears off easily with little sweat, so if you perspire a lot I will not recommend this product.
  • Has different kinds of parabens according to the list of ingredients, so those who are scared of paraben/s kindly check the list.
Will I repurchase? It's in the realm of possibility.

Recommendation:
     I give this lotion a 4.5/5 rating. Since the application of the lotion is tricky, I advise you to apply a little amount and just add little by little if you think there are still parts of your body that needs concealing so that your skin color will not look uneven. The INSTANT WHITE EFFECT is REALLY OBVIOUS so be careful not to go overboard. Since it contains a little amount of spf, sunblock is a must especially when going outside the house. 

     I will still recommend this product for those who really wants to whiten their skin in an instant. It will give a creamy white effect once applied and absorbed by the skin.

     Have you tried Glupa (Glutathione + Papaya) products? Share your thoughts and have a great day ahead!

Good Times!~

  8. Hello po magiging ok po ba yan sa skin to...kasi gumamit po ako ng silka papaya may tumubo mga red sa skin :(

    Magiging ok po ba kaya yung skin ko sa glupa

    1. Hi Ivyn,

      I'm not sure if magiging okay sayo ang Glupa. Since hindi ka hiyang sa silka papaya, baka may ingredients yun na di ka hiyang. Trial and error kasi talaga ang lahat ng products, hindi mo malalaman kung okay sayo kung hindi mo sususbukan. Since we have different skin types, pedeing hiyang ako sa glupa ikaw hindi or vice versa.

  9. Hello it takes month po ba before I can see results? I'm mixing glupa and nivea po kse, I don't like to use pure glupa cos it's so visible. If I'm gonna use whitening lotion, should I also use sun protection? Please tell me what sun block to use and should I put my whitening lotion and then sun block or just sun block alone? I'm studying as much I want to avoid sun light, I can't. I really want to whiten my skin faster. I've been using nivea white and repair UV body lotion mixed with glupa. After I emptied nivea, I'll try the nivea extra whitening mix with glupa. I really want to lighten my skin where it get dark because of our swimming class last sem. It's been just 2 weeks since I started putting lotion and glupa lotion. Help me please.

    1. Hi Lala,

      Thank you so much for dropping by. Because I have fair skin already, I usually see the effect of whitening lotion after 4 weeks unless it is a whitening lotion na may instant white effect. It's okay naman to combine two lotions kaya lang hindi mo makikita kung ano yung mas effective. You can use sunblock after applying your lotion. You need to use if religiously for more than 1 month din to see the maximum effect. Sometimes may tendency din mag plateau and effect sa skin in the long run. Basta avoid sun exposure as much as possible. Kahit pa you're using sunblock, you need to use umbrella or other protective wear pag lumalabas ka lalo na sa tanghali. Hope this helps :)

    2. Thank youuuu! I'll continue using lotion on summer so I can stay at home. Unlike in this month, I have a class. So much exposure on the sun -.- Thank you so much. ;)

    1. Hi,

      I'm not sure where, sa Mercury lang ang alam ko meron. Nakikita ko din sa Watsons yung Glupa but not sure if available and whitening face cream. Depende din sa branch yung availability.

    1. Hi Cring,

      Iba-iba kasi reaction ng products sa skin natin. Medyo drying yung soap kaya need mo ng lotion. Since the lotion has an instant white effect, it can be drying nga at times.

    1. Hi,

      This product is for the body. They also have whitening face cream and it depends on your skin type. Since you have pimples, you should use anti-acne products first before using the whitening ones.

    1. Hi,

      This is for the face lang. You need to use the cream for face. There's a big difference kasi sa consistency. Lotion might be heavy for your face.

  18. Hello, I mix Glupa lotion with RoseHip Oil and I have used it for one week now. I have not see any difference? Should I use Glupa alone? How much is the Glupa in Dollars this days?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Nana,

      It's okay to mix it with RoseHip Oil. But if you want to see the effect, use the product alone so you can cross out which one if ever you have negative reaction to it. Give it at least a month, if you have fair skin already chances are you'll see the effects pero hindi na gaano. Around $2 usd+

    1. Hi,

      Belo Kojic with Tranexamic Acid Lotion, Nivea Whitening Pink or Orange, Kojie San. These are trusted and effective naman and budget friendly na din. But be sure na wag ka mag-papaaraw masyado kasi need mo ng sunblock if you do so.

  20. Ms. kath, ok lng ba gmitin ang glupa lotion under the sun, hindi ba ito nakakaitim? lagi kasi ako naglalakad papuntang office, pero umaga naman po mga between 8-8:30am.

    1. Hi Bella,

      Okay naman kasi may SPF pero mababa yung number. Mas okay if mag-sunblock ka din para sure. Since hindi pa naman gaano mainit ang 8:00-8:30, be sure to bring umbrella na lang.
