Product Review: Ishigaki Amino Classic White formerly Ishigaki Advanced Ultra White

Monday, September 18, 2017

    Hi dearies! I'm sure that you've heard the news that Ishigaki Glutathione is now FDA Approved. Aside from the certification from FDA, the variants have been repackaged, reformulated, and there's a seal that says "authentic".

     I received a lot of queries on my review of the previous Ishigaki Advanced Ultra White if the new Ishigaki Amino Classic White has the same whitening and glowing effect after finishing one bottle. Will the new variant give the same creamy or almost translucent complexion and faster results in as early as 2 weeks?

     Like what I always tell my readers,  I'm already fair, to begin with, but I have uneven skin tone. My arms are darker than my legs because I'm outside the house starting from 10:00 am where the sun is up high. I use sunblock with 50 SPF and my umbrella is always with me. 

      Anyhoo, Cheskas's Online Store sent the new Ishigaki Amino Classic White last August for me to try and see if the new formulation is better. For those asking about the packaging, the capsule, and what to expect when you purchase a bottle of Authentic Ishigaki Amino Classic White kindly see the photo below :)

What I like:
  • The bottle is still bigger than Ishigaki Premium Plus. It is tightly sealed once you purchase a bottle so no need to worry about contamination. There's a plastic seal outside the bottle cap and another seal inside on the top of the bottle
  • Stinky rotten egg odor is still present once you open the bottle. 
  • This is now FDA APPROVED.
  • There is an authenticity seal on the lower left side of the bottle.
  • No ALA in the ingredients so hooray for those who are allergic to it.
  • Ishigaki Amino Classic White also contains L-cysteine, and N-Acetyl-Cysteine was known as potent boosters to speed up the whitening process of the skin.
  • No allergic reactions vomiting, headache, nausea, breakouts, or whatsoever.
  • It made my skin glowing the next day even if I only have 4 hours of sleep every night.
  • No appearance of cystic acne last menstrual period.
  • There's a slight change in the color of my freckles but not that drastic.
  • After finishing 1 bottle, pimple marks on my chin lightened a bit.
  • My skin tone is still even if I bask under the sun provided that I applied sunblock and have an umbrella with me.
  • The skin tone it gave me is still creamy and translucent white. Check the photos of my leg and arm which I took near the window and a side view selfie. Used my mirrorless camera to take the photos. 
  • 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 like:
  • Not easily accessible, you have to purchase it online.

Will I purchase? Yes. It's one of the brands that I'll be recommending over and over again.

Recommendation:
     I give this a 4.75/5 rating as of the moment because my rating depends on the price and overall experience during the time I'm taking this supplement. I would give a 5/5 rating if not for that. The price of Ishigaki is higher now and there is no ALA in the ingredients. In my opinion, the brand Ishigaki though priced higher than before is still one of the cheapest brands of glutathione in the market today that delivers good results. 

     However, the results may vary from person to person. There are individuals who react faster to supplements and give them positive results. Again, if you have morena skin tone kindly expect three or more months before you see a drastic result.

     For those who are still asking why the effects of Glutathione supplement is too slow on their body, my answer would be it still depends on the lifestyle that you have. Glutathione supplement serves as an antioxidant in the liver. It cleanses the body from the toxins accumulated from pollution and chemicals so if you smoke, drink, and always stay late at night this supplement will first cleanse the toxins inside the body that's why sometimes the whitening effect is slower than those who have low-stress levels and toxins in their body.

Have you tried the new Ishigaki glutathione variants? Hope you can share your experience :)

  1. Hi Ms. Kath,
    Thanks for the review. I just wanna as lng if Ishigaki premium's result is still the same pinkish glow. I'm planning kasi to buy ishi premium I prefer kasi pinkish glow more than translusent white. And also is it ok if I only take ishi 1 time a day. I already fair na din kasi.I just like to maintain and improve lang a bit. Thank you.

    1. Hi,

      I'm currently reviewing the new Ishigaki Premium. After finishing, I'll make a review and check if the result is still pinkish white. Yes, okay ang once a day lang since you're already fair with like me. Maintenance yung 1x a day.

    1. Hi,

      Common allergic reaction to glutathione is rashes pero yes nawawala naman din sya. Wala naman ako nna-experience during the time I'm taking Ishigaki kaya if sobrang dumami yung red spots and naging itchy, stop taking the supplement muna.

      In my experience kasi nung nag-start pa lang ako dati, inuuna ko na yung Vitamin C mga 10 mins then saka pa yung ishi. Pero sa mga recent na review ko napag-sasabay ko na kasi minsan wala ng time or nakakalimutan ko na.

  10. Hi;
    Im a follower of your every blog. Thank you for a very imformative blog all the time. But im just confused i thought this Ishigaki Amino Classic white has no ALA since im allergic to it but when i checked Cheska' store their Ishigaki Amino classic product ingredient details has ALA 50 mg.

    1. Hi,

      Thank you so much for following my blog. The Ishigaki kasi on Cheskas website that you saw is the old formulation. I visited her site and I can't see the new formulation though she is selling that one. The one with 550 mg ALA IS THE OLD FORMULATION. They have not updated their website yet that's why the ingredients list is still the same as the old one.

    1. Hi LV,

      It's not mabagal. Compared to fair skin kasi, mas madaming pigments yung papuputiin. So dapat mga 3 months or more para makita yung maximum effect. You need to take 3-4 caps lang depends on the weight. Pero kung nasa 50-60 kg lang, pwede na yung twice a day. It also depends on the lifestyle kasi and the metabolism of your body.

    1. Hi,

      Hindi ko na matandaan during the time na nag-take ako. But according sa mga nabasa ko na article, some may experience allergies while on glutathione but it's self-limiting naman and pwede mawala if nasanay na yung body or pag-nag stop ka mag take.

    1. Hi,

      If in 1 month di pa nawawala cystic pimples it means hindi ka hiyang sa product. Dapat stop mo muna then resume if ever lumiit or nawala yung pimples. Pag bumalik ulit and nag-take ka ulit ng Ishi, it means yun ang culprit.

    1. Hi,

      My review kasi is September 2017 pa kasi. Almost a year na yung nakalipas. I'm not sure if they have a new packaging or they changed the formulation. The authenticity seal on what I received is sticker type. Then the expiry date I forgot how it is written as I've thrown the bottle na. If you trust naman the seller then you should not doubt on the product. The newer Ishigaki sa pagkaaalam ko is meron na din GMP seal.

  31. Hi Ms Kath, regardless of price, which worked better for you in terms of whitening, snowcaps, tathione307, tatiomax or ishigaki? Thank you :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Jadizzel,

      All of them worked for me. The difference is the content and the kind of skin tone (pale, pinkish, yellowish). Ishigaki is fastest to give glow but it can give a yellow or pinkish tone, Snow Caps is okay too but both has ALA which gives an allergic reaction to some. Tathione 307 is the purest but you have to take them 3 times a day and some says they gained weight while taking this. Tatiomax gives glow in a span of 1 week but whitening after finishing a bottle. Results still depends on your lifestyle.

      Yes, vitamin c will boost the absorption of glutathione kasi in general. It depends on you metabolism and skin tone. As early as two weeks may glow na. But the whitening usually is 1-3 months of continuous use.

      Any brand will do. Pag acidic ka yung mga Sodium Ascorbate. Pag hindi naman pwede na ang generic kahit Rhea. For Vitamin C ba? As much as possible 1000 mg a day ang max. Morning and evening for Vitamin C. For Ishigaki, twice a day talaga ang dosage. Okay lang ang three times if may budget to spare and nagmamadali magpaputi.
