What Do You Need To Travel To NYC, USA?

It is one thing to plan to visit the best beauty stores in NYC, and it is another thing to be sure about the requirements you have to meet. You have to consider an application for an ESTA or Visa to successfully travel to the USA.

If you are a citizen of one of the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) countries you need to apply for an ESTA. You might be probably wondering or asking yourself “what is visa waiver program?” It is a program of the US government which gives the opportunity to citizens of the specific country to travel to the US for up to 90 days without obtaining a visa, and this is applicable when the ESTA is approved. But remember to always check your ESTA application status before traveling to the US.
On the other hand, if you are not a citizen of the VWP countries, you will have to apply for a visa instead of ESTA. However, you need to fulfill some basic US visa application requirements
With so many spas, salons, and shops in NYC it is tempting to list all of them, but a visit to the best beauty stores discussed above can make your trip to the USA something to always remember.

Most Effective Glutathione in the Philippines 2018

by 10:30 PM
This is an updated list of the best Glutathione brands I've tried here in the Philippines this 2018. Please note that the views and opinion about each glutathione brands are based on my personal opinion and experience using the products. It's just a continuation of my "What's the best glutathione in the Philippines?" few years ago.

What's the best glutathione in the Philippines this 2018?

Again, I wanna make things clear, this article was based on my experience and my personal opinion about the brands that I'm going to feature here. I'm not some sort of glutathione expert or a licensed  pharmacist like Janine Togonon (Ms. Universe 1st Runner Up 2013) hahaha.

To answer your question, for me, the best glutathione brands in the Philippines this 2018 are the following:

(No particular order)


Glutaredox is a groundbreaking supplement that gives the same effect of a glutathione injection in a simple sublingual tablet. Its patented formulation of a high concentration of reduced Glutathione, Vitamin C, Selenium and L-Cysteine along with its Oro-FS-Release technology assures a 100% absorption rate which makes it superior compared to others.

I finished the product for straight two months and I can confidently say that this product really works as skin lightening supplement. I have tried different glutathione brands and I can really tell if the product is working or not. It's my skin and body anyway! :D But the result was very evident to you my #VanityFriends because just like what I have said at the beginning of this article, you guys were asking me what supplement I'm currently taking because according to you, my skin looks lighter and smoother.

Relumins Gluta 1000

I am really happy with the result and I can definitely tell that the Relumins Advance Nutrition Gluta 1000 is a steal! You guys should try this product because it's really amazing! As I have said, I wasn't expecting drastic change on my skin but this product still delivered astonishing result. Oh my gee! I need to get tan a little bit for me to review more glutathione and yeah, that's the life of a guinea pig haha!

What I like:
Vegetarian Capsules
Trusted brand
Detailed packaging
No bad side effects

What I don't like:
It doesn't have vitamin c
Not readily available in the supermarkets or drugstores
Smells sour (rotten egg with vinegar)

What I like about this glutathione is the milkish white effect it gives on my skin. As early as two weeks, I've noticed an obvious glow and I didn't experience acne breakout using Ishigaki Premium Plus. Ooopss did I mention that it's only P880? You can read my full review by "clicking here" 

Snow Caps Glutathione

An amazing product from VidaNutriScience. Available in Watsons and Mercury Drugstores at P1,495. Like Ishigaki Premium Plus, it gives me a milkish white effect. I love that my skin is super glowing specially under the sun. Took Snow for two months straight with 500mg vitamin c. You can read my full review by "clicking here" 

VitaPack MegaWhite Glutathione

Another budget friendly glutathione  (P950.00) at Watsons. It made me recover from sunburn faster. This glutathione gives a pinkish white effect which is perfect if you wanna achieve that "Tisay/Tisoy" looking skin. "Click here for the full review."

Ishigaki Amino Classic White Glutathione

I highly recommend taking the new Ishigaki Amino Classic White Glutathione. It's now FDA approved with better formulation and it really works. I am fair already yes, but it made me even fairer and I wasn't expecting that to be honest. This deserves to be included in our best glutathione in the Philippines. Yes the product is more expensive than before but I don't mind paying extra P200 for that better formulation. It's a way cheaper still compared to other glutathiones available in the market today. "Click here for the full review."

If you guys wanna see my skin color and condition after taking the Ishigaki Amino Classic White, please watch this short video that I made explaining my whole experience about the said product plus some pictures of my skin. I also made an Iodine Test to see if we have the authentic Ishigaki. Watch the video here:

Opulence Nutrawhite L-Glutathione + Boosters

I braved myself to take the product without the vitamin c. At first, I was doubting if the product will work with just 100mg of vitamin c which is already included in the capsule. But! I was wrong!  The product worked great! I've noticed that my tummy is behave when I'm taking Opulence Nutrawhite alone and people are complementing my skin for being glowing and fair. I received comments about my skin on the pictures that I've posted recently. "Click here for the full review".

Relumins Advanced Glutathione

I take each capsules two times a day\and again the capsules are big but I don't mind it at all. I never experienced any breakouts, sickness or other negative side effects. I feel good everyday,  it helps improve my mood and mental alertness, I knew it because before taking these, I easily get annoyed lol. Honestly speaking, I thought Relumins was just over advertised by EB BABES as  they are having flawless white skin and hey! I must admit I'm wrong. After Using Relumins for 3weeks my skin is noticeably glowing and having that flawless white skin. I super duper love how I look. Lots of people are complementing my skin, they say I have a kutis artista skin and I feel great hearing those! :) "Click here for the full review".

Feel free to watch my video on how to achieve fairer skin here:

I'd also like to specify that I'm taking vitamin c together with glutathione to boost the effect and absorption rate of the glutathione in our body. I used to take Rhea Ascorbic Acid (P130.00 per 100 tablets available in all Mercury Drugstores nationwide) If you have a SukiCard, it's still P130 hahaha. Currently using sodium ascorbate because I have GERD. Also loving the KB Rosehips because it gives an added glow on my skin.

The above mentioned brands are the best glutathione that I've tried by far. I'm not sticking to one brand simply because I believe that other brands deserve a try so I can share my experience to you. Yes, I'm your guinea pig hahaha πŸ˜‚. If you're going to ask me what's the best among the featured brands above, they're incomparable. All of them are the best for me because they worked amazingly. I've tried a lot of decent brands too, please click the links below for the full review:

PS: I have also published an article on how you can achieve fairer skin. Visit: to know more!  :)

Not because the product is good for me, it will be good for you too or it would deliver the same result. As I'm always saying, "hiyangan" yan. Take my reviews as a guide not as a pattern. Do your research and try what's best for you.

I will keep this page updated if I found another glutathione that's worthy to be listed here. You can still message me on my Facebook page or DM me on Instagram if you have further questions and I'll try to answer as soon as I can. Thank you. 😊
