SnowCaps L-Glutathione Capsule

A few months ago, I was invited by Vida Nutriscience, Inc. to try SnowCaps L-Glutathione Capsule. Prior to agreeing, I tried searching for reviews online, and found one by Erikajjang. After reading it, I was convinced and decided to give it a try as well.

 

People might ask me why I decided to try glutathione even if I have fair skin to begin with. Well, I believe there’s always room for improvement. My skin is fair, but with a yellowish undertone (because of my Chinese roots). I’m intrigued on how glutathione might help further improve my skintone.

 

Aside from that, glutathione is a master antixodant that’s stronger than vitamin C. Antioxidants work against free radicals (potentially harmful chemicals caused by stress, sun, and pollution) by neutralizing them, therefore preventing them from destroying protein from our body. Skin whitening is just a (fortunate) side effect of taking glutathione.

SnowCaps L-Glutathione Capsule with Alpha-Lipoic Acid and Vit C

SnowCaps contains Premium 500mg of L-Glutathione, also known as the miracle enzyme, to help whiten our skin. SnowCaps allows us to ingest the proper amount of L-Glutathione (reduced) with 100mg Alpha Lipoic Acidand 100mg Non-Acidic Vitamin C.

In case you’re wondering what Alpha-lipoic acid is, it’s also an antioxidant. It appears to be able to recycle antioxidants such as vitamin C and glutathione after they have been used up. Glutathione is an important antioxidant that helps the body eliminate potentially harmful substances, while Alpha-lipoic acid increases the formation of glutathione. (Source: About.com)

The expiry dates of the product is both embossed and printed on each blister pack. (Manufacturing and expiry date is also printed on the box itself.)

However, I noticed an inconsistency with regards to the mg of each capsule. One the box, it’s 700mg while on the blister pack it’s 650mg. This part is confusing, since I’m not sure on how much mg of Vitamin C it actually contains.
I was instructed to take 1 capsule a day (after a meal). I started taking this product last October 15, 2013 to October 31, 2013. During that 2 weeks, I had overtime work for 10 consecutive days, which would have made me haggard due to long working hours and lack of sleep. But because I was taking SnowCaps, my skin looked great and healthy the entire time. While I was out shopping, the staff of the store I frequently visit took a long look atmy arms and said that my skin tone has changed and asked what product I was using. (I linked a photo on that so you could also see.) That was just 2 weeks after taking SnowCaps.
But then, I got sick (with colds and cough) and started breaking out so I pause a bit. At that time, I developed around 6 cystic acne on my chin (one after another). I supposed it was hormones, stress, the toothpaste I was using, or the glutathione. I paused taking SnowCaps for a week, but the breakouts continued. I asked my nurse friend about how certain medicines can affect the skin, but she said that the glutathione I was taking was unlikely the cause of my acne, since it was late onset (because I had been taking it for already 2 weeks before the acne started popping out). The I realized that the culprit of my breakouts was the new toothpaste I’ve been using during my office lunch break. I quickly tossed it out of my life, and my breakouts have stopped as well. (You may read about how I killed those pesky cystic acne here.)
Anyway, back to regular programming. I decided to retake SnowCaps again from November 16, 2013 to December 28, 2013 (today, which the last day since I’ve already finished up the 2 boxes).
Here are some photos of my skin, before and after taking 2 boxes of SnowCaps. Note that these photos aren’t edited, except for cropping, labels, and watermarks.

The skin around my abdominal area has always been darker than the rest of my body, and I don’t know why! With SnowCaps, there has been a huge improvement on my skintone.

Before & After SnowCaps: Arm

My yellowish skin has turned to a pinkish white shade. I also love how the antioxidants in this dietary supplement makes my skin look healthy despite the new wave of overtime work (again!) this month.

Pros:

While taking SnowCaps, my skin looked healthier. I didn’t look haggard even if worked late and, felt tired, and lacked sleep.

Skin had a lit from within glow.

Whitening effect is natural, gradual and subtle.

Yellowish undertone of the skin was lessened; skin had a pinkish white look.

This didn’t cause me breakouts. It may even have prevented breakouts due to its detoxifying ingredients and antioxidants (at least for me), since I didn’t get pimples during the time of the month.

It’s convenient, since you only take this once a day (with meals).

Most importantly, I experienced no negative side effects.

Cons:

It’s expensive, especially for long term use.

Glutathione’s main function is an antioxidant, but it’s side effect is that it stops the formation of melanin (which gives out skin color and acts as our natural sunblock). Melanin protects us from burning. When our skin has less melanin, it starts to get fair. At the same time, our natural sun protection is decreased, which makes us more susceptible to burning. Friendly advice: While taking glutathione, please always use an umbrella if you’re too lazy to apply sunscreen all over your body everyday (like me).
According to Dr. Vicky Belo, the toxic dose of glutathione is 3000mg per day. So if you take 1 SnowCaps capsule (with 500mg L-Glutathione) a day, you’re still far from the limit.
Each box of SnowCaps costs P1,475.00 which will last you 1 month. You can buy thisonline or at Mercury Drug stores or Watsons stores nationwide.
