Last month I was given the opportunity to try some supplements from Power and Beauty Bio Aesthetiq Essentials. Here is my unbiased review of their Source Naturals Sublingual Glutathione after finishing one bottle.
I'm actually fair skinned to begin with (MAC NC 25-20) so you're probably wondering why I would still take Glutathione despite the fact....These were given to me for review and aside from its whitening benefits, Glutathione is a very potent antioxidant so it is also good for anti-aging. I am nuts about anti-aging products since I firmly believe that prevention is better than cure when it comes to skincare.
First lets discuss what is sublingual Glutathione and what makes it different from oral glutathione?
What the sublingual tablet looks like
Before and after a month of usage (1-2 tabs daily) Sorry for the lighting disparity but I think you can still see the improvement with regards to skintone (pinkish tinge instead of yellow/dull color) and the lips part. For your reference my foundation shade is MAC NC 20 before using this glutathione product so it's pretty light already.
Product info from Power and Beauty Bio Aesthetiq Essentials
Glutathione is composed of the amino acids L-cysteine, L-glutamic acid, and glycine. It is a potent antioxidant and works in the liver to protect the body from harmful substances. It is also a precursor to glutathione peroxidase, a key antioxidant enzyme, which protects against lipid peroxidation (fats turning rancid). Along with these health benefits, glutathione also has a noticeable whitening effect, which is why it has been widely used and recommended by dermatologists as a beauty product for the improvements in complexion that result from its use.
To get the most out of the product, we recommend taking 2-3 tablets daily under the tongue.

I didn't really expect to get any whiter since I am quite fair already. I was looking forward to the anti-aging and other skin benefits but I think I did get whiter especially on my limbs part. My skin usually has that chinese yellowy undertone that can sometimes look unhealthy/sallow but after a month's use of this my complexion has improved considerably! I think I even have a sorta pinkish white tone now. My upper lips are dark on the outer corners also and although it didn't lighten that part I've noticed that my lips have become more pink/rosy.
My only real gripe about this is the dissolving-under-your-tongue part since that takes awhile and I'm quite impatient with these things! hahaha! It's not really a major issue thought since I'd take these over needles any day!
Would I recommend this to you guys? Yes! but please have realistic expectations especially if you have a dark/tanned complexion. Don't expect to become whiter immediately.
