My first encounter with Gloww was in 2012. I was pretty impressed how my skin stayed fair despite the summer trotting I did with my family back then – including a week long tour along the streets (and river – Mekong) of Vietnam and Cambodia. I was almost sure that I was going to be a notch darker since the heat of Manila was considerably more forgiving than that of Cambodia’s! Truth be told, I would’ve stayed in the hotel if it were up to me. I loved that I stayed just as fair! 🙂
Five years since, and I am getting reacquainted with Gloww Collagen Capsules.
Gloww helps feed skin’s CLBT. CLBT being Color, Luminosity, Brightness and Transparency. Its one of a kind SKHN (Skin, Health and Nutrient) Complex reinforces collagen, detoxifies your skin, upgrades blood dissemination, shields it from unsafe UV beams and free radicals.
Gloww Capsules include these following natural ingredients: Marine Protein, Horsetail Extract ,Lycopene, Green Tea Extract, Lemon Bioflavonoids, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Vitamin C , Grape Seed Extract, Natural Betacarotene, Pine Bark Extract,Vitamin E.
Recommended dosage is 2 capsules per day for two months, and 1 capsule per day after two months.
Gloww Collagen Capsules retails for P960 per box, with 30 capsules.
Gloww Collagen Powdered Drink
When a product is already good, and am pretty satisfied in its overall benefits, I don’t exactly expect for it to go another extra mile by coming up with yet another awesome product. But this is exactly what Gloww has done and I cannot be more thrilled! 🙂
I initially wondered what the difference is from my old favorite Gloww capsules. Apparently, Gloww Collagen is powered by Verisol. Verisol is a product of advanced German technology that makes the collagen more bioavailable as it is absorbed by the gut, and allows for the repair of damaged skin to be more efficient. The efficient absorption helps the skin to get the most out of your collagen.
After around two months of taking Gloww Collagen Capsules and Gloww Collagen Drink
My skin is noticeably more supple. I don’t need to slather on as much moisturizer as I used to. I’m 40 and I was wearing very light make up in this photo. Of course, I wouldn’t get caught without my brows, but on the face, no primer, just a regular BB cream (which explains the shine haha!) and lipstick. 🙂
Although I did mention that I remained fair with the constant taking of Gloww supplement, I have long corrected in my mind the misconception that it is a whitening agent. It actually is not, the skin remains fair essentially because of the detoxification action of the chemical breakdown of all the ingredients combined. It helps keep the skin sustain its youthful glow.
The recommended dosage for Gloww Collagen is 1 sachet per day. This food supplement is sold for P90 per sachet or P2,700 per box of 30 sachets.
Gloww Collagen Powdered Drink Ingredients include: Collagen hydrolysate (Verisol), mixed fruit dry flavour, citric acide anhydrous, sucralose and carmine (coloring agent)
My love affair with #GlowwCapsules goes back to 2012. Explains the multiple write-ups on the blog ➡ KikayCorner.net I was won over by its all-natural ingredients right on: Marine Protein, Horsetail Extract, Green Tea Extract, Lemon Bioflavanoids, Collagen, Ascorbic Acid, Tomato and Grape Seed Extract Some of the other benefits: Gloww cleanses & detoxifies the skin, improves micro circulation of the skin and nourishes it for a healthy & glowing look, protects the skin from free radical damage and prevents aging & provides strength and elasticity to the skin for a smoother and firmer skin.
Another undeniable and pleasant side effect of Gloww Collagen on me is the non-incidence of dry eyes. I’m not surprised, actually. Since I’ve learned that collagen helps lubricate joints and eye tissues, resulting to dry eyes prevention. “Dry eyes” has been an incessant problem that has bugged me for some years now. My years of freelancing and virtual assistant tasks have taken their toll on my poor eyes. I love that I no longer have to deal with it for as long as I’m taking my Gloww Collagen supplement.
Based on studies, after two months of continued use of Gloww Collagen, the following effects are observed:
- Improved skin elasticity
- Improved skin moisture
- Wrinkle reduction
- Even after a 4week washout phase, effects are still evident.
Gloww Collagen is also BFAD approved, which for me, is a non-negotiable when I’m looking into a long-term supplement. I’ve been won over by the product from 2012, and I am even more pleased with Gloww now that it comes in this delightfully-flavored powdered drink.

Have you watched Adam Levine’s recently released television commercial for Proactiv yet?
If you happen to not have seen it yet, get ready to listen up as the lead singer of Grammy Award-Winning band, Maroon 5, is sharing his personal story about his battle against acne growing up.
Kikay Corner recently celebrated with Kojiesan their 10th year in the skin lightening industry.
Kojiesan’s manufacturer, Beauty Elements Venture’s Inc. (BEVI)’s success story is a witness to its owner’s determination. They started out with a few dozen orders and to its current millions of bars sold, the soap has been a favorite among the Filipino household. It started making waves locally and like every good news, it was bound to break out. Kojiesan is now known all across the globe.
BEVI started in a humble office in a residential area of Makati. Now, the company operates from an entire building. It also owns 6 hectares of manufacturing facilities in San Pablo, Laguna, providing employment to more than 500 employees.
BEVI is the first to introduce kojic acid soap in the Philippine market, initially as a supplier to dermatologists, who prescribed it to patients with skin pigmentation and darkening problems. Realizing its potential, BEVI launched the original kojic acid soap formulated the traditional Japanese way and made it even better by adding high-grade virgin coconut oil into the mix.
I love success stories like this, they create a foreground for people like us to never stop striving to reach for our dreams. My first encounter with Kojiesan was when I learned from our helper some 6 years back that it was the brand of soap that she used. I had to ask because the transition from dull skin to a bright and flawless one was amazing. Yes, it was inevitable for me to stock up on it myself. 🙂
Beauty Treatment Review: Diana Stalder Laser Treatment for sun spots and spider veins.
Sun spot, age spot, melasma, however it gets called, it has the makings of us being self-conscious or just plain annoyed. I honestly switch from former to the latter. Who wants a blotchy skin anyway?!
Diana Stalder, 5/F Megamall Building A
Finally took that step to get my sunspots taken cared of at Diana Stalder in Megamall towards the end of June.
Consult with Diana Stalder in-house Dermatologist, Dra. Anne Capistrano
As soon as Dra. Anne took note of my sun spot skin concern, she headed on towards a series of questions on my lifestyle. Mainly pertaining to the frequency of sun exposure in my daily grind. I later appreciated how thorough she was before she jumped right on to a solution. I had a few options, one of which is chemical peeling, which provides the fastest result. But because I had a client call happening the next couple of days, there was no way it was feasible, since chemical peel will mean that I’m to visibly peel and I have to practically stay indoors and stay out of the sun. I’ve done this years ago and I know what it’s like. That takes it out of the question. After some deliberations, we agreed on laser treatment for my sun spots with TyRo White line to support the treatment. (more…)
What’s in the HyC150 collagen drink and how will it benefit our body and promote anti-aging?
Early this week, I, together with fellow lifestyle bloggers, trooped to Oracle Beauty Clinic, to check out the posh beauty place and know more about HyC150, the much talked about Collagen Drink from Japan and other health and beauty supplement products by its maker, FINE Japan Co. Ltd.
Etiquette Rose, HyC150, Turmeric Extract Powder and Ginger Black Tea are distributed by FINE Japan Co. Ltd.
The summer heat has gone beyond unbearable these past days. Unbearable enough that I was under the weather the week after my son was. Tandem it with one of summer’s most common diseases, sore eyes, and I just about welcomed myself into misery land. But as I am feeling better today, I’m more than ever convinced that we should be more vigilant in making sure our bodies are well hydrated, especially this summer.
That said, did you know that this wild summer heat has the makings of dehydrating your skin? I know this all too well since my cracked lips are such give away. As our skin is exposed to factors that can damage and dry it out. From hot showers, air-conditioned rooms, to the heat and pollution during one’s daily commute, skin is stripped off of its natural hydration and moisture. Check out the difference between leaves with and and without Vaseline. That’s pretty much the case for my lip when I fail to dab Vaseline Petroleum Jelly on it – one touch and it’s likely to crack.
Vaseline 100% Pure Petroleum Jelly
This tub of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly did not merely protect my lips but it has practically healed my cracked lips. No more achy and bruised lips from all the cracks. We all know how lips tend to crack when we are sick, so this has been my go-to-tub since I got the flu. (more…)

After receiving quite a number of inquiries on how my underarm laser hair removal I had in 2014 progressed, I finally gave laser removal a go again after a couple of years. As I mentioned in an article published a few months after I stopped midway through the treatment, my pits started to darken. If there’s anything about my underarms, they are chubby but not dark. The darkening phase kinda shocked me and I decided to quit the laser hair removal procedure altogether.
Two years down the road, I’m taking this laser hair removal road once again and it’s the Diode Laser Treatment this time via Allura Body Contour and Slimming Center.
I know better than to preempt any conclusion. But it’s a couple of days since my second treatment and no darkening! The procedure I went through in 2014, darkening happened on my second visit. I’m going to make sure to share my progress as I go along and am plenty hopeful this time that I will be able to graduate through the suggested 10 session treatment course.
First off, what is Diode Laser Hair Removal? Here’s what I’ve learned about this laser removal treatment, so far.
Diode Laser Hair Removal
- Diode Laser Hair Removal is the GOLD STANDARD for light brown (type III) to fair (type II) skin tone.
- Laser hair removal is the process of removing unwanted hair by means of exposure to pulses of laser light that destroy the hair follicle.
- To achieve permanent hair reduction, several sessions are needed. The number of sessions depends on the area of the body being treated.
- The diode laser produces a light in the 800 nanometer range which specifically seeks the pigment in dark hair and does not affect surrounding tissues.
