Gluta C Lightening Cream Review – What I Really Think

There are a lot of skin lightening creams out in the market and I understand it can be a tough task to decide which one to try or buy.  I always prefer skin lightening creams that already has a built in SPF so I can skip using sunblock when I’m out in a hurry. I first discovered Gluta C products through another blogger, my good friend Donnarence from MyLucidIntervals. She mentioned how great the moisturizer was because it has all the simple qualities a girl will look for in a lightening day cream.

  1. High SPF for sun protection
  2. Non comedogenic and Hypoallergenic
  3. Light and Non-sticky
  4. Affordable
  5. Has an effective whitening ingredient
I purchased the large pump a couple of years back and I loved it. Since I’m now trying out all sorts of skin whitening creams I decided to buy another tube to use and finally feature Gluta C Lightening Cream with SPF 25 for review! (Yes. I do BUY them products)



  • Glutathione – I don’t really buy the idea of glutathione can lighten skin externally. It doesn’t make any sense at all. Glutathione is an anti-oxidant that works internally in our liver, that gives a side effect of skin whitening when taken internally or thru IV. Companies probably use this as a marketing strategy because all things “gluta” means whitening.
  • Vitamin A – An exfoliant to micropeel dead skin cells and help our skin naturally renew
  • Vitamin E – A natural anti-oxidant to keep our skin soft and plump
  • Shea Butter – It gives our skin moisture. Remember, moisture doesn’t mean oily!
  • Niacinamide – Another effective ingredient for whitening the skin by minimizing the melanin on the outer layer of our skin. It also works for preventing acne.
  • Titanium dioxide – The source of sun protection. SPF 25 is pretty good for a day cream



As with almost all whitening creams in the regular market. Do not expect miracles. This product will not make your skin any lighter, BUT it is a good day cream if you plan on maintaining your skin’s fairness
What I like about Gluta C Lightening Cream?
  • High SPF!
  • Non-oily. It actually helps control oil. It has a matte finish
  • Does not clog my pores!
  • Affordable. I think it retails around less than 100php per tube
What I don’t like about Gluta C Lightening Cream?
  • The packaging. While the tube is nice, I really don’t think the yellow and orange color is attractive enough. Even the font they used on the label.
Will I buy again?
Yes but not any time soon. We have a LOT of whitening creams to try!

Did you guys notice I tried watermarking again? While trying to google my reviews I spotted some “copiers” who stole my blogpost and photos and used it on their website. Now this is the internet and everyone can do whatever they want. So what I did is put my watermark site so at least people know that the photos and text are originally mine.

A little goes a long way!

    My mom tried this a few years back, can't exactly say her skin lightened. Although, it did make her skin fairer and felt moisturized.

    Hi Guia!
    Hmm.. Sa totoo lang, gusto ko yung Pond's Dewy Rose Gel, ang light and ang lamig sa face perfect for summer! May SPF din sya and hindi ka mangingitim.
