Taking the Glupa Challenge

Just when I thought I have heard of every possible whitening agent in the Metro, along comes Glupa. When I first heard of Glupa, I had to check what was with the name. The brand name was coined from Glutathione and Papayathe beauty product line’s main ingredients. I cannot help but be curious what its edge is amongst the more popular whitening agent brands that have already made names for the themselves. Aside from the very interesting choice of its elegant black packaging, which is not exactly the default for most Whitening products (I am inclined to be partial towards brands that go towards the unconventional), it almost always says a lot about how their product is thought of. More often than not, products that defy the usual deliver to its claims. As far as I have observed. I will see about Glupa’s claims, in the next 7 days. Yes, I have personally taken that challenge. 🙂

Apparently, on top of the two best whitening agents, Glupa soap has additional Alpha Arbutin, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Tiny White Complex, Grape Seed Extract and Sunscreen to give you younger-looking and fairer and softer skin. Just the exact ingredients I would want for my own facial and bath soap. I have tried a bunch of soaps and I am actually loving the Glupa soap’s Cucumber Melon scent.

I don’t know about you, but I am personally intrigued by Glupa Capsule‘s challenge of  “no need for the dangerous IV injectible.”  It was two years ago when I blogged about the Benefits of Glutathione. Its anti-aging, detoxification benefits are complemented by the Papain in  Papaya‘s ability to break down the large Glutathione molecules into its most absorbable form such that the body will be able to maximize the benefits of these agents that are tagged as two of the most powerful anti-oxidant agents.

Dermatix Ultra Scar Eraser Review

For some reason, the klutz in me spring up from time to time, making this Dermatix Ultra scar remover very handy. I have read that these moments are not uncommon to us, ladies, when hormones go berserk during our time of the month. I usually get minor bruises or trip here and there. Nothing major as my shin skin scraping off until one night last June. It was crazy painful! But I can only be thankful that I was wearing pjs. Else, I could have scraped myself to the bone! Ouch!

1 week old wound

Here’s much I can tell, for a moment there, I really felt like I saw stars and birds circling my head on impact. It happened during the time when the rain was pouring hard. So screaming for help wouldn’t have done me any good. It was also too owie to let out a scream! I struggled to get up and helped myself as I limped my way back to the house. It was crazy for me to go out and walk in the dark anyway. What was I thinking! 🙁

It was then that I remembered this lady over at a drugstore approaching me about Dermatix Ultra some months back. I did not pay much attention to it much since I don’t have major boo boos that needed some erasing. A couple of weeks after the incident I went to the drugstore to check this out.

Beyond Bath Organics pampering experience at The Manila Hotel Spa

It was a lovely night of sweet body pampering at Manila Hotel courtesy of Beyond Bath Organics last July 27, 2010. Never mind if I had to struggle my way in because it coincided with the concert Lettermen had that night. I actually had to Google them up. They apparently are the original boy band of the 60’s, which explains the demographics of the crowd that night. The trouble was all worth it, I should say.

Now, if you happen to have been following this blog for a while, you already know that my leaning is towards everything organic. So when I received the invitation for the Beyond Bath Organics some weeks back, I knew there was no way I was to miss it.

When I got in the lobby of Manila Hotel Spa, I was all ears. I was really pleased that business people are getting into the “green” bandwagon. Either it be out of sheer passion or by mere dictation of the wellness generation we are tagged with, the fact remains that this effort makes both manufacturer and consumer value our environment all the more.
