Everesh White Ex Review

by 9:15 PM
Just like what I've said on my previous review (Meiji Amino Collagen "Click here"), I am also taking a whitening supplement along with Meiji. As promised, here's my detailed review about it my #VanityFriends because I love you to the moon and to the moon only haha joke! I love you to the moon and back! ❤

Everesh White Ex Review

This supplement aims to boost the production of glutathione in our system and suppress the effects of melanin while giving our skin a healthy glow.

L cysteine 240mg, Vitamin C 1000mg, Vitamin E 50mg.

6 tablets daily 3 divided dosage before or after meals (2 Tablets 3x a day)

Where to buy? (Will make a store review plus unboxing soon so stay tuned for that).

How much?
P1,400 per 1 bottle of 180 tablets

I was really skeptical to try it when I saw that this was included in the package because of its look. It looks like a medicine more than a supplement. I know I'm being judgemental again but it really does look like a medicine and I was really afraid to try it so I made my research first. Finally I gave it a shot!

I felt so guilty judging the product by its look and packaging but you cannot blame me, it's a supplement and I just wanna make sure it's safe. Everything (90%) of the packaging is written in Japanese chorva haha. According to my research, it's safe and authentic so my worries were concealed by my excitement.

I thought it's a glutathione supplement but I was wrong because there's no glutathione in the ingredients. So how can this supplement give me a whiter skin? The answer? Because it has no glutathione but! It has Vitamin C, that prevents the production of "black" melanin responsible for hyperpigmentation and darkening. It also boost the production of the natural glutathione in our body. Everesh White Ex also contains L-cysteine. It works to suppress the effects of melanin, which causes spots, freckles, and uneven skin tone. It also counters production of undesired melanin due to lack of sleep, improper health habits, stress and UV rays. L-cysteine also enhances the production of proteins, glutathione, taurine, coenzyme A and other inorganic sulfates in the body. Lastly, it contains Vitamin E that improves blood circulation and promote the skin's healthy metabolism.

So this is some sort of booster? I bet yes! It helps in boosting the production of the natural glutathione of our bodies and I can feel that! As I've said on my previous post, I received some compliments that I have a nice skin bla bla bla and the only two supplements I'm taking now is the Meiji Amino Premium Collagen Powder and this Everesh White Ex.

I noticed that my skin has this fresh look everyday and my partner said that I'm getting whiter specifically my limbs. I also noticed that personally and I've discovered the secret what makes the product more effective. According to my friend who's a Licensed Pharmacist, it's better to take glutathione or other supplements in small dosages multiple times a day than taking it all at once because not all of it will be absorbed by the body. Say you took 1000mg of glutathione, probably only 250mg will be possibly absorbed by our system and the remaining 750mg will be waisted. So if you take small dosages 3 times a day, you'll get continues supply of whatever supplement you're taking the whole day.

That information is gold! No wonder this Everesh White Ex delivers great results. I didn't experience breakouts but I am sometimes experiencing super mild acidity so I am taking it after meals.

Look at my most recent pictures:

With my gorgeous friend, Say Tioco! 😊❤

What I like:
• Effective
• Comes from a trusted store (
• No breakouts
• No burning throat/palpitations/heartburns
• Affordable
• Japan Made
• Makes me look glowing
• Divided dosage
• Skin and health benefits

What I don't like:
• Tablets are too little and hard to handle because you might misplaced one.
• Packaging has no English translation
• Gives me mild acidity
• Glass bottle (vulnerable for a clumsy person like me. 😂)
• I sometimes forget to take because the dosage is divided haha this one's a pro and con.  😂

All in all, I recommend taking Everesh White Ex if you're looking for a supplement to give you a whiter skin while keeping you healthy. It's effective in skin whitening at least from what I've noticed. You might want to consider this one if you're currently in a hunt for the next supplement to try. Don't just rely on this review alone, make your research or consult your doctor if you're under medication or what not. Take this review as a guide not a pattern. Take it with a pinch of salt. 😊

PS. I'll make a video blog about how convenient and safe it is to order at so stay tuned for that my loves. 😊❤😙

Meiji Amino Premium Collagen Review

by 5:55 PM
Lately, I've been receiving some compliments that I have a nice glowing skin. It really makes me kilig to the cheek bones hahaha. I mean who wouldn't smile from ear to ear when someone tells you that you have a nice skin right? Aside from the whitening soaps and lotions that I've recently featured here, I am also taking supplements from Japan called White Ex (will make a separate review) and:

Meiji Amino Premium Collagen

To meet the needs of those who wish to attain evolving beauty, this powder targets new heights in beauty. With 5,000 mg of low-molecular fish collagen, a daily dose of Amino Collagen also contains 1,200 µg of ceramide (a notable beauty ingredient), 20 mg of hyaluronic acid, and coenzyme Q10 (a source of vitality, beauty and youthfulness). Each dose of powder also contains 450 mg of arginine, an amino acid (containing an Amino Collagen building block); 60 mg of glucosamine; and 50 mg of vitamin C. Amino Collagen comes in an easy-to-drink, fast-dissolving powder formula.

fish collagen peptide (gelatin), maltodextrin, vegetable oil, coenzyme Q10, ceramide-containing extract from rice germ, trehalose, vitamin C, glucosamine, arginine, flavor, hyaluronic acid, emulsifying agent (including soybeans), thickening agent (gum arabic), sweetener (sucralose).

Where to buy?

How much?

First of all, it has no fishy taste even if it's made out of marine collagen. It has fishy aftertaste yes, but that's when you drink it pure so what I'm doing is I'm mixing one spoonful of this Meiji Amino Premium Collagen to my juice or hot chocolate in the morning and you'll definitely can't tell that there's a marine collagen in your beverage. Since I've got the one in pouch, I transferred the product into this cute food storage:

One pouch is good for almost one month and by that time, I saw visible results after 3 weeks of taking this baby fish haha. I noticed that my nails got thicker and my hair grows faster than usual. I usually get a haircut every two or three weeks but meiji changed that routine into every week. Apart from that, my skin is getting softer and it feels lighter and smooth like baby's skin. My partner even said that my limbs are getting more makinis. 😊❤ I'd like to show you some pictures of mine:

I didn't notice if it helps in reducing the appearance of visible pores because I'm using dermroller at the same time but I think it does help because it's collagen that helps our skin recover from being wounded which what dermroller is doing. I didn't experience any side effects like acidity, palpitations, heartburn etc.

I think what makes this product special apart from it's so popular in Japan that even my pinay friends there are aware of it is the selection of added ingredients. Co Q10, Vitamin C and Hyaluronic acid are some of special added ingredients that boosts the efficacy of Meiji and the way our skin and body absorb the product. Probably one of the reasons why I didn't experience any side effects is that, my body is used to having fish. I love eating fish and Meiji Collagen is made out of fish and some vitamins. There are some collagen that are made out of horse and it's very rare for human to eat horse so it's really a foreign think in our digestive system which is why some are experiencing discomforts.

What I like:
• Effective
• Well known company
• Made out of Marine Collagen
• No taste (When mixed with other beverages)
• No side effects
• Loaded with boosters (other ingredients)

What I don't like:
• Smells fish (very light)
• There's a fish aftertaste  (when taken pure)
• A little pricey (Though you'll get what you pay)
• Not readily available in the supermarket
• No English translation of the details on the packaging

All in all, I highly recommend Meiji Amino Premium Collagen to you guys. It's really an effective supplement and you know how honest and meticulous I am when reviewing things like this. I also wanna recommend because they sell authentic Meiji Collagen and other products and they have the lowest price in the Philippine market today so visit their online store now. I love shopping at even before when I'm still a student.

This is a sponsored review. sent me the product for review. Regardless, I only give honest feedback based on my reviews and observations about the product. You deserve to know that truth and nothing but the absolute truth. What's good for me may not be good for you so take this review as a guide not as a pattern. Take it with a pinch of salt. 😊
