My Derma Roller Experience: So Painful!

Yesterday (Saturday) I switched my skin clinic one to see what the other skin clinic could offer. I am a regular customer of Nisce Skin Clinic but after a while I got this gutsy feeling to try this skin clinic which is established longer in our place than Nisce. This skin clinic is already operating since 1996 (I guess), and Nisce is around 2005 (I think).

Scar Treatment : Contractubex Gel

Here is my long overdue posting with regards to anti-scar. I have recommended ROC Retinol Correxion Serum. I swear that this product works but is not readily available here in the Philippines. It has also that weird smell so I do not use before during mornings. Now, here is another product worth trying when it comes to scar treatment. This is the Contractubex Gel.

Illegal skin whitener could kill-ABS-CBN News

This article is related to injectable glutathiones.

MANILA - Illegal injections of a cancer-treating chemical pose a risk of death to legions of Filipinos who use them to try to whiten their skin, health authorities warned Tuesday.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) suspects the drug glutathione is being injected in high doses as a skin-whitener, but said it can cause serious conditions including kidney failure and blood poisoning.

Glutathione injectables not safe-FDA

I almost tried having injectable glutathione,but nobody is offering here in the province. I always read the testimonials of those who have undergone injectable glutathione and they swear that the effect is really faster compared to orally-taken glutathione. However, the article below makes me think twice in going the same procedure.

Glutathione: Sarah Geronimo admits taking glutathione

As I scan through the news, I saw this article from manila bulletin online ( and it says that Sarah Geronimo is taking glutathione to maintain her fair and younger looking skin. She also points out that glutathione is responsible for her pinky white complexion.

Skarslick Skin Softening Essence: The Verdict (based on my experience)

I used Skarslick on my old scars, especially my acne scars. I also used it on my scar on my legs. Since in the TV advertisement, it says that the more you use the product, the sooner will be the result. So, I use the product on every free time of mine. I massaged it more than six times daily on my old scars, especially on my face.

Skarslick Skin Softening Essence: An Overview of Ingredients, Precautions, and Direction of Use

I bought Skarslick Skin softening Essence to reduce the appearance of my scars. I want to try it because I cannot find any first hand testimonials on the Internet except on its website where it only advertises the product.

Treatment of Acne Scars: Skarslick- Does it work?

This is my first post regarding Skarslick. I have watched the advertisement of this product in the cable channel and I am impressed because the persons giving testimonials to the product were Filipinos. So, I immediately went to their branch at Farmer's Plaza (this was last year) and bought a box of Skarslick.

Skin whitening using glutathione: Three months after using Met-tathione

This is my third month of using met-tathione. Well so far so good, the effect has been visible already. Now, I plan to take met-tathione for maintenance purposes only. So, instead of taking four capsules per day (two capsules every morning and evening), I have been taking two capsules per day since yesterday. I do not want to over "lighten" my skin because others might think that I am obsessed in making my skin fairer.

Pictures of ROC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Serum for Acne Scars

I am in a rush last time I posted about this product, since I was so excited to share about it to my readers. I am also aware that many of those who have acne scars like me are still in search of a good product that can reduce the appearance of scars, especially on the face. So, I uploaded the picture taken by my phone. I thought the picture was okay until someone told me that the picture is blurry, and it seems that it was intentional to hide the source of the picture in the internet.

Benefits of using Retinol: Anti-aging, Anti Acne, Anti-Wrinkles, Anti-Scars

Just a little bit of information about Retinol, below are some excerpts from different sources:
Retinol, is one of the animal forms of vitamin A. It is a diterpenoid and an alcohol. It is convertible to other forms of vitamin A, and the retinyl ester derivative of the alcohol serves as the storage form of the vitamin in animals.

Fight Acne Scars: ROC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Serum

When it comes to acne scars, I would like to recommend the product I am using, which is ROC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Serum. As I have told in my previous blog (to view, click here) about my experience with Diamond peel in removing my acne marks, it failed on me. However, this product really delivers results. It has been over a week now since I started using it, and it really lightens up some of my acne marks.

follow up: effect of glutathione (met-tathione) for this time

So after more than two months ( I want to reserve an update on my third month supposedly, but I know a few would still like to know what had happened to my body already), it has significant effect on my part already. First, at this point in time, this is where I can really tell the effect of the product on my skin.

Skin Whitening using glutathione: I still use Met-tathione

I still use met-tathione. I asked for some advice from my readers but nobody replied. I guessed it means I should not change my glutathione brand. I thought to myself 'why experiment with other brands if I have already tested the efficacy of met-tathione?'.

Update: Two months after using met-tathione (glutathione brand)

After two months of using glutathione, I must admit that the product really works. However, do not expect too much from the product itself. Since I am just monitoring the effect of the glutathione on my body everyday, it is hard to benchmark it since if we look at our face in the mirror, we are adjusted to how our appearance look day by day. I want to take a picture of myself before and after but there is no perfect camera.

skin whitening using glutathione: glutathione effect on sun exposure (met-tathione)

It has been more than two weeks now, and I want to give everyone an update of met-thathione to my skin. There has been no noticeable effect, to be honest. However, let me inform you that I have exposed myself to sunlight for three consecutive days! Think about the amount of UV rays that may cause skin darkening.

skin whitening using glutathione: my experience with diamond peel

While waiting for a major skin whitening result, I am thinking about how to improve the appearance of my acne scars. I have deeps acne scars all over my face. I tried diamond peel before from Nisce Skin Clinic. Actually, I wanted to have micro dermabrasion and unfortunately, the equipment was unavailable, so I settled for diamond peel.

skin whitening using glutathione: treatment gone plateau (met-tathione brand)

I am on the second month of using glutathione. However, after the breakthrough result that happened to me a couple of weeks ago, I think I reached the plateau part of using the product. It means that the effect of glutathione on my skin has no significant or major whitening that is happening on my skin.

skin whitening using glutathione (met-tathione): facial cleaning by dermatologist

I had my facial cleaning today. Even though I am using met-tathione, my acne does not seem to improve. Actually, I am expecting that since glutathione is a master anti-oxidant, at least it can boost my immune system to fight off the bacteria that cause my acne, or it could normalize the excessive production of sebum in my face. I was wrong.

skin whitening using glutathione: why choose met-tathione over other products

This is the Part 2 of my research for the product Met-tathione. This post (and the previous post) was lifted from the advertisements of online sellers of the product Met-tathione. Actually, what they posted were all identical. Again, I would like to repost it for the information of everybody.

MET-TATHIONE is used to help treat blood disorders, and detoxify the liver of heavy metals, toxins, and alcohol. It has a long history of being used by those exposed to radiation and chemotherapy during cancer therapies. It helps to protect cells and tissues against oxidants.

skin whitening using glutatione: first real result (Met-tathione brand)

When I had my hair cut this afternoon, I saw myself in the mirror and I must admit, my face has already lightened. Actually, I had to double check myself in other mirrors if what I saw in the barber shop was, in fact, not just a product of good lighting and imagination.

skin whitening using glutathione: Effect on Pimples, Acne, Marks and Scars (Met-tathione brand)

I do not think glutathione has an effect to acne problems. I am already taking my second bottle of Met-tathione and I still suffer from occasional breakouts which I am also experiencing when I was not taking glutathione before.

met-tathione glutathione user journal: 2nd day effect as skin whitening

This is my second day in taking met- tathione. In the internet, visible results can be noticed in 3-6 months. However, since I am observing any changes in my skin, I am going to write what I can observe.

my first day in using met tathione

I bought one box of met-tathione today. I just felt I want to have a lighter complexion. I am male, 26 years old, and I have a brown skin. However, since Filipinos have a penchant for mestizo-looking persons, I think I must lighten my skin in order to be considered good-looking.
