Hi guys! I’ll be writing my first ever blog and review on a whitening product. And I can’t wait to share more of my experiences with you!
What lead me to writing a review about whitening products. I actually have a light yellowish skin color. I don’t get cystic acne although I do get some small pimples from time to time especially whenever I’m about to have my monthly period. So to cut it short, I don’t have a perfect skin. I’ve never tried any whitening pills before because I’ve never really had any reasons to do so. However, I’ve heard and read a lot of reviews and testimonials on whitening products promising a very smooth, clear, and glowing skin and this got me so curious. And so I searched for good brands of whitening pills and read a lot of reviews about them and one of the brands that I end up with was the Dr. James Glutathione. There were a lot of good reviews regarding this product and so I searched for online sellers and I found one in Lazada. I was so happy to actually find this brand in Lazada because from what I know it’s a trusted online store promising the authenticity of each and every product that they feature and sell. I searched thru Lazada and found more than one match of the same brand and its prices vary from P400+ to P1500+. I was thrilled by the highly discounted price that they offered and since I wanted something affordable yet effective I decided to buy and try it. I ordered 2 bottles one for me and my sister which cost me P420 each and a total of P895 including the shipping fee. I had it sent through a Cash on Delivery basis to ensure I won’t lose anything in case my order does not arrive at all. And so after that they sent me a confirmation message and updated about the details of the delivery of my order. I was impressed with how very hands-on they were with their customers. However, this wasn’t enough to make me feel assured of my purchase so I did more research on product authenticity and reviews on the quality of Lazada’s products services and I bumped into one blogger who had an experience in buying from same online store.
This was the site where I read the review:
After reading that review I got worried that I’ll end with the same situation, and so I messaged Lazada with:
After this, considering that I got the product for a very low price, I just accepted it and waited for the product to be delivered. And so, finally, Lazada confirmed the shipping of my order and I got it on May 29, 2015. I was excited and at the same time nervous to receive my order. At last, I can confirm the product’s authenticity! I took some photos of the packaging and the products that I ordered:
The packaging was nice enough considering that I only got two items.
I found a photo showing which bottle is fake or not, you could check it from:
I tried opening the capsule and saw a brown powder. It didn’t smell like a rotten egg or anything like that as some would say. It smelled and tasted like something organic or like that of in tea.
I read a lot of reviews, some say that the content of the capsule should be white and sour, some says that it should be brown. I took this product for three days and stopped already since I’m not really sure which one was real and I don’t want to risk it. Well, I learned my lessons. So if you guys are planning to purchase any whitening product make sure that you can tell the difference between an authentic and fake, and buy it from a trusted distributor because you wouldn’t want to risk your health just to save a few hundreds or thousands to achieve that white and glowing skin.
Disclaimer: I’m not saying that Lazada sells fake products, it’s just that sometimes you can’t avoid these problems. So just always remember to weigh every options that you have and buy wisely.
