Gluta-C with Kojic Plus Shower Salt Scrub and Acne Control Toner Review





Hi AMW friends!  Today, I will be giving my initial thoughts on 2 newest products from Gluta-C with Kojic Plus+ line which I got from Sample Room.

Gluta-C With Kojic Plus+ Shower Salt Scrub (Php164.75) and
Gluta-C With Kojic Plus+ Acne Control Toner (Php109.75)

Since I've tried other Gluta-C products in the past and haven't suffered any negative reactions using them, I am more comfortable in giving these 2 new products a try!  But keep in mind that I didn't use the toner fully because I personally do not have Acne Prone Skin and I only use it on days I needed to "spot treat" certain areas.  As for the Shower Salt Scrub, I come to terms with the idea of exfoliating both my face and body even with dry skin because it helps lessen the skin flakiness and it was highly recommended by skin experts to do so no matter what skin type you have!

Let's start with the Shower Salt Scrub which I used immediately after receiving this from Sample Room.

 Gluta-C Kojic Plus+ Shower Salt Scrub has 4x skin whitening action that combines the power of Glutathione, Vitamin C, Kojic Acid, and Azelaoyl Diglycinate for a more holistic skin whitening regimen. It gently yet effectively exfoliates to remove dead skin cells without causing dryness for that younger smoother skin and provides a cooling scent for a refreshed feeling.

The tub is quite huge and you get to dip your whole fingers to grab the product.  If this sits in your shower for longer period of time (as I use this once a week), the salt tends to settle at the bottom so I use a clean spatula in mixing everything before use.

The product is meant to be applied and massaged GENTLY all over the body.  I said gently because I didn't like the feeling of it the first time I use.  The "salt" is a bit too large than most body scrubs I've used and since I have dry and sensitive skin, it creates a strong friction and my skin felt a bit irritated on first use.

After several tries, I realized that I have to make sure my whole body is damp (as opposed to dry for some body scrubs to work), I gently massage the product in circular motion concentrating on dry and dark areas and my hands almost not touching my skin.  

Let's talk about the scent, there's a slight orange scent that is quite yummy (in my opinion).  I like it that my skin felt smooth even during application.  Upon rinsing, my skin felt so soft like that of a baby's bum!  (I can tell because it felt the same as my son's bum!).  I was actually scared on my first few usage so I have a body oil right on hand to apply immediately, but guess what?  My skin never felt dry or rough at all and I can see how my skin glows after several use!  

Even if my skin does not feel dry, I still follow up with Lotion on good days but since the weather is cooler and drier, I follow with Body Oil and the absorption is even better when I exfoliate with Shower Salt Scrub from Gluta-C!

Just keep in mind that this is a great product to exfoliate but if you have broken skin, be careful not to use the said product as it may cause irritations or worst, allergic reactions!


I am impressed with this product and I'm almost done with the first tub!


Next, I get to try Gluta-C with Kojic Plus+ Alcohol Free Acne Control Toner.  I use this only on random areas on my face that I think needed the extra attention.  Areas that are starting to breakout, areas that tends to oil up a bit (T-Zone).

 Gluta-C Kojic Plus+ Toner is an alcohol-free toner that performs 4x skin whitening action with the combined power of Glutathione, Vitamin C, Kojic Acid, and Azelaoyl Diglycinate for a more holistic skin whitening regimen. It has anti-bacterial properties that fight acne and breakouts; visibly reduce the appearance of pores, and; remove excess oils, dirt, and impurities without drying or irritating the skin for that soft, smooth, and refreshed skin.

I actually tested this by applying a tiny amount on my jawline before I went ahead applying the rest of my face.  I can't vouch on the final result as I don't have acne skin as stated earlier but I can vouch on the feel, the texture, how my skin reacts to such product.

The product is housed in a very simple tube.  The best way to apply this product is a with a soft cotton pad.  Apply a good amount all over the cotton and gently apply all over face (or areas for me) not getting near the eye area!  Since it's alcohol-free, there's no tingling sensation at all and it doesn't dry out my skin!

On areas around my face that tends to breakout or if a pimple is starting to show up, I use this product and dab directly onto the spot.  So far, it works!

Check out the slightly dirty cotton even after I washed my face! (Photo below)

Be very careful not to expose your skin directly under the sun without much production when you use any of the products featured above!  As for me, I have always been sharing that my secret to even skin is spot treating whitening face product onto my elbows and knees too because it works for me!
