Gloww Collagen Capsule and Collagen Powdered Drink Review

Gloww Collagen Drink

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! 🙂

Gloww Capsules

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.

Gloww Collagen Drink

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)


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.

We are all in for a treat as Watsons launched its most recent campaign – Big White Blowout!

Whether we like it or not, the quality of our skin has the ability to make or break our confidence. Not only is our skin the largest organ of our body, it is also the most visible. This is why we pay the most attention to it and try our best to care for it the best way we know how.
watsons bigwhiteblowout productsWe each have our own stories of skin frustrations – uneven skin tone, dull skin, blemishes, et. al. While a lot might have found their holy grail for their skin issues, the best of us will always be in the look out for the newest beauty product in the market. And because we are Filipinas, a whiter, more even complexion is always what we shoot for – or at least, for most of us. 🙂  (more…)

Happy 10th, Kojiesan!

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.

Happy 10th, @KojieSanPH! 👒 #BringYourSkinToLight with #KojieSan ❤ #FirstTierBrands

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 Product Feature: Your Whitest White Skin with SkinWhite

What’s a girl to do when three of her favorite things come in one package: chevron stripes, pink and personalized? Go giddy and just drink it in! Not literally, silly! Thank you so much, Skin White for these goodies and my personalized chevron pink overnight bag! You know a blogger is really excited when there’s a whole lot of exclamation marks in one paragraph, right? 🙂

Between the hubby and me, it’s really him who’s been the longer time user of Skin White. It all started when I had him try the Skin White deo and he hasn’t switched since. That’s counting more than 5 years now. As for yours truly, I can’t go without a bottle of SkinWhite PowerWhitening Lotion. In fact, I have it in the car’s compartment, in my closet and in my stash of toiletries supply. Ever since I’ve realized that I can’t step out of the house without sunscreen, I make sure I apply lotion with SPF. I’ve tried other brands but find them too greasy for comfort, so I always switch right back to Skin White. 🙂

Mention-Worthy Whitening Products

Like it or not, we Filipinas are bombarded with whitening products left and right. It’s as if our life depended on being as fair skinned as possible. They say the caucasians who have colonized our country have left, but guess what, the mentality of fair being “beautiful” has kind of stuck. This is true even for someone who is considerably fair. It’s inevitable. It is kind of the norm. Thus, I more than just find myself hiding under the sun as I slather through thick sunscreen protection but I have also enjoyed using quite a bunch of whitening products.

Who does not love clear, translucent, clean and fair skin, right? Those are essentially my reasons why I play favorites and here’s my list of Top Whitening Products:

1. Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Scrub

When I go to a spa, it was never for a massage that I go for. My hubby is more skilled than any spa therapist who’s ever given me a massage. I go to a spa for the scrub treatment. Ever since Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Scrub, I have practically stopped going to the spa for my longed for body scrub.

2. Flawless Underarm Whitening with Milk Extract

I did not expect laser hair removal was going to cause underarm darkening, so it startled me quite a bit when it did. This product is a wonder product in that I gained my fair skin back in under a week. I love that it has all-natural ingredients and there was no sting in the whitening process. (more…)

Beauty Product Feature: Flawless Underarm Whitening with Milk Extract

Some months ago, I underwent this laser underarm hair removal procedure. While I super love the fact that I did not have to shave at least twice a week, in fact, it lasted so long that I did not shave for a couple of months and no hair surfaced, I did not make it to the third session though. I should undergo at least 6 sessions to permanently remove the hair. Even then, I would still have to go back for a yearly for some sort of a retouching session.

Flawless Underarm Whitening

One of the expected side effects of underarm laser removal is the darkening of the pits. While this may be nothing permanent and can easily be addressed, I kind of got shocked that I had to pause the laser removal session to get my pits back to normal.

I am so happy to have this Flawless Underarm Whitening Cream with Milk Extract handy that I have practically replaced my deodorant with it. It is so gentle that I use it after every bath, that’s twice per day.

I can’t even begin to express my delight as I started to see my pits lighten in color in less than a week! (more…)
