Product Review: Ishigaki Amino Classic White Glutathione (New Packaging, Label and Barcode)

Wednesday, January 15, 2020

    And the consistent effective glutathione brand in the Philippine market award goes to... Ishigaki! Hooray! Yes, this brand that was first introduced 10 years ago is still one of the most affordable and effective brands to date. My first review of Ishigaki Glutathione Whitening Supplement was 2015 and for a span of five years, I have seen how the brand improved its packaging and formulation one after the other. This brand is also a favorite amongst beauty bloggers in the Philippines and Pinay Youtubers are well.

     Ishigaki Glutathione is has been FDA approved since 2017 that's why aside from the certification from FDA, the variants have been repackaged, reformulated, and received a GMP seal. I presume that with all these changes, Ishigaki fans have this burning question if it 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? Cheska's Online Store, the trusted online shop of all things beauty sent me a bottle to try and hopefully answer that question. So here are my thoughts after taking Ishigaki Amino Classic White religiously for a month.

Product Review: Ishigaki Amino Classic White (New Packaging, Label and Barcode)

     Before I share my thoughts on this well-loved brand, my skin is fair as of the moment but I have an uneven skin tone. The upper part of my arms is lighter, the sleeves of my blouses protect that part and the lower parts were always exposed when I do errands even if I put on sunscreen and I have my umbrella with me. I run errands around 10:00 A.M. until 3:00 P.M., the sun's heat is at its peak so even if it is windy outside, chances are I'll still get darker without protection and daily glutathione supplement. 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 :)

TDC Mark at the bottom of the bottle packaging, lot and expiration date read as MONTH/YEAR, Authenticity Seal, GMP Certification and FDA Registration Number

What I like:
  • The bottle size is still bigger than its counterpart for pinkish-white result Ishigaki Amino Premium White Glutathione. A tightly sealed bottle so no need to worry about contamination. with 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 but lesser compared to the previous one I took last 2017. The capsules have a faint rotten egg scent which will delight those who have a sensitive nose.
  • FDA APPROVED with registration number printed on the left side of the bottle. It is written vertically beside the brand name. The GMP Certification and authentic seal is also printed on the left bottom side of the bottle.
  • No ALA in the ingredients so hooray for those who are allergic to it.
  • Ishigaki Amino Classic White also contains potent boosters to speed up the whitening process of the skin like L-cysteine and N-Acetyl-Cysteine. 
  • No allergic reactions like vomiting, headache, nausea, breakouts, or whatsoever.
  • My skin is glowing even if I only have 4 hours of sleep every night.
  • No appearance of cystic acne last menstrual period.
  • After finishing 1 bottle, pimple marks on my chin and my cheeks lightened a bit.
  • Even if I bask under the sun provided that I applied sunblock and have an umbrella with me, my skin is still even-toned.
  • This variant of Ishigaki still gives the creamy and translucent white result.
  • 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:
  • None 

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

     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 :)
