Saluta Glutathione IV Review

I got 2 boxes of Saluta

Already getting used to the needles! teehee

   Eversince I was a kid I've always dreamt of having that perfect white skin. I was born fair to begin with but somehow I still wasn't satisfied. And it doesn't help that I have Chinese friends with alabaster glowing complexions which makes me compare my own skin tone. I also envy those celebs whose skins seems to shine a mile away, it's like they have those built in glowsticks underneath. I know I had issues with self-esteem and insecurities while growing up...

   Well back to the topic...media also portrays a big role in influencing the psyche with campaigns that says white is more beautiful. The rising percentage of consumers alone and the influx of whitening products shows the huge market following of whitening products. I have tried almost every product conceivable that pertains to skin whitening. I wouldn't even think twice about spending loads of money just to try which product might work best. I'm the perfect buyer coz I'm so gullible. Just mention the keywords whitening, glutathione and lightening I'd instantly grab whatever it is without any second thoughts. Everytime I travel I'm instantly on the lookout for items that promises brighter glowing skin. Aside from bags, a huge chunk of my money was spent on these things.

    I was a Tathionil user before and I was already quite pleased with the results. But when Saluta entered my sphere of awareness with the tagline- 'it's even better than Tathionil' i was like whoa! Sounds good! Those lines were like music to my ears. Naturally I HAD to get it and voilà! at the speed of light it was already at my doorstep. So I jumped onto the next craze.

   I bought 2 boxes first. Next step is to find a nurse who specializes in IV injections. So I googled and found Kathy. She is very good coz i hardly feel any pain. But I still can't help but cringe at the mere sight of needles. She   preps each vial in separate syringes. Glutathione first then vitamin C and lastly the placenta. I noticed that there are days when the vitamin C injection feels uncomfortable, there's that heavy tingly sensation that annoys me. Quick tip is to rub ice on the area while it is being injected. It instantly diverts and soothes the pain. The whole process is quick. After that you can go on with whatever things you need to do for the day.

   I use 2 vials of Saluta each time which totals to 1200 mg of glutathione. I religiously do it twice a week for faster effect. During the first month I hardly noticed any dramatic changes. But on the second month I was like "Yeah! This thing is working!". My skin was beginning to brighten and glow. I wanted to jump up and down and do my infamous chicken dance coz I was so happy. My money was definitely well worth it!

   Even Mr G who keeps telling me I don't need such things noticed some changes. During family pictures, my skintone was already similar to my mom's whose color is always shining coz she's super fair. Friends tell me I look whiter and more blooming. Hurrah! Saluta works!

   Although it's quite costly to maintain this crazy addiction, I still continue doing it coz it makes me feel better about myself. I know that you should love the skin your in but each person has a different preference and mindset over such things. To each his own...I don't see anything wrong with having that gorgeous bronze, caramel or tan shade just as long as it fits you. I appreciate beauty in any form. It's just that I feel that whiter skin suits me the most.

   Since i'm already satisfied with the results, I have decreased my shots to once a week. For maintenance purposes. I still get giddy and excited each time the medicine goes thru my veins coz I feel as if some wonderful and potent concoction is working it's way to do magic on my skin. It's not my goal to have Michael Jackson's ghoulish white complexion. I only want healthy white glowing skin and Saluta helped me achieve the closest I could get in my pursuit towards embracing that dream skin of mine. :-)

yay for injections.. i hated injections and i am not tolerable even to minor pains but for the sake of beauty this sounds promising.. i wanted to have fair skin too since I don't know when... hehe.. hope you could post before and after pics of yourself.. :D

MINAKICHU said...

Haha no pain, no gain! All for vanity! I still hate injections no matter how hard I tell myself that I'm already used to it. I have a friend who's also scared of the needles just like you but she managed just fine after. Will try to post some before and after skin shots:-)

jenobebs said...

my previous offcmate and i was thinking of taking gluta capsules/tablets before but its a hefty price with the salary we had so we decided not to. personally i like my morena skintone but its not even, hence me wanting to take something for the heck of my skin improving. but with the budget constraint, gluta or any faster way of making the skintone even is something way out of my league now. :(

Hello! I want to ask about the results. Do you have facebook so I can message you on there? im really interested to hear about it.

MINAKICHU said...

Hi Thanks for dropping by! I don't have facebook account. Hehe but you can email me at minakichu@yahoo.com.ph I'll be planning to add some after pics in this post though:-)

Anonymous said...

hi minakichu. i would like to ask where do you order saluta (online) and where to find a registered nurse to administer iv glutathione. thanks.

MINAKICHU said...

Hello I order my saluta from beautyquotient, they have a multiply site. They are nice and fast in delivering:-) as for the nurse, I just found her via Internet. These nurses usually consider the location of which is convenient for them:-) thanks for dropping by

Anonymous said...

hey, where do u get ur supply of saluta and how much does it cost? I also dream of having a fair and glowing skin!

MINAKICHU said...

Hello girls, the first time I took saluta I got dizzy too but eventually I got ok. And after that no more experience similar to that.:-)

I get my supplies from beautyquotient. They have a multiply site. You can check their products there. I like getting from them coz they deliver fast and the price is not too high. :-)

thanks for dropping by!

Hi there, May I know where Kathy is located? I wanna try Saluta too, and maybe she can administer the Saluta IV. Thanks

Julie said...

Hi. Does it even out the skintone? Like the underarms, elbows, etc? :)

Julie said...

Hi. Does it even out the skintone? Like the underarms, elbows, etc? :)

MINAKICHU said...

Hi Julie, it does but very gradually and it varies sometimes which area would lighten first. I mean it depends on the person. :-)

Julie said...

Hello, did you buy the placenta separately?

MINAKICHU said...

Yup I bought it separately, I also tried the capsule form and I like the injection version better. But I kinda stopped now coz the maintenance is quite expensive hehe:-)

bency said...

hey,
can u post ur before and after pictures. can u also tell me will u go back to ur orginal colour if u stop using the injection.thanks

MINAKICHU said...

hi bency, i think i got a bit darker when i stopped but its still relatively fair.I'll try to find some before pics, thanks:-)

Anonymous said...

i also got gluta injectables from beautyquotient.. tried teopharma its quite good.but im torn between the two.she mistakenly delivered saluta for my 2nd box but maybe i cud try this one too.but based on their prices i thought tationil was far more better than saluta since its more expensive.but do u think its much much better than teo sis? hope u cud help me. badly need more of ur review.

MINAKICHU said...

Hi sis ^ IMHO i think Saluta is better and faster in skin whitening, i'm just basing it from personal experience. But kanya kanyang hiyang din. I have a friend who's so fair already but still uses Tathionil coz it gives her a reddish/pinkish glow. I also liked Tat before but whitening is more obvious with Saluta lang so i switched to Saluta na:-)

Anonymous said...

Hi sis, nakaka tanggal din ba yung saluta ng chickenpox scars? coz i have it for 7 years and gusto ko na talaga sya mawala.

MINAKICHU said...

Hi sis i don't think so. But siguro it will just help lighten the dark scars a bit but not totally coz i still have a chickenpox scar which is not too visible now:-)

Anonymous said...

hi sissy.. i really find ur blogs very interesting.. i also read your blog about ph338..

btw, im currently using saluta also, im on my 3rd box now. and yeah! it really works.. im also planning to take ph338 soon.. i just want to read some blogs/reviews about it first.. haha..

im a registered nurse residing here in bacoor, cavite.. if you guys need a nurse to do it just contact me or add my fb account username szakiyah pena.. thanks!

hope to see more of your blogs..

MINAKICHU said...

^Hi sis thanks sa pagvisit! Super nice ng saluta no? I really love the effects on me. Medyo rest muna ako sa injections coz' nabugbog my veins na at nahirapan nang makakuha ng ugat na may backflow. But I'll be resuming again soon. While I'm either taking ph338 or tathion coz I love the effects of these during non-iv days.

Sis if ever anlayo mo pala coz I live all the way from far away Quezon city. Hehe. If you happen to know anyone nearer coz hassle sayo sobra.:-)

emily said...

hello po..:) i find your blog very interesting. i just would like to ask permission if i could use your blog in my site? im kinda promoting saluta kc.. if you don't mind..:)

MINAKICHU said...

Hi Emily it's ok, no problem. Thanks for the nice comment and for visiting my blog. Really appreciate it:-)

nice.

i got my first box of saluta ystrday. iv therapist nala g

Anonymous said...

Hi.. Im planning to buy saluta. I have fair skin and and to have more whiter skin. Even if its faster absorption on intravenous route, i want it to do i.m. Because its easier to administer myself than getting someone to pay for intravenous route. Is it okay for saluta product to be administered intramusculary?
Im a registered nurse and currently working.
Hope u can find an answer for this about saluta before i order mine. Thanks

Nina said...

I agree with you sis, Saluta is better than TAT. I've bought my saluta set from Shenelles.multiply.com. On my first month of using, nakikita ko na glowing skin na, then on second month naglilighten na skin tone ko.. I love the result! I will continue using the Saluta, it's the best!

faab said...

Hi i read ur blogs and find it so intrsting..im on my 1st box of saluta and planning to try germed gluta from italy.pls i wanna hear a piece of advice if i have to use germed instead of saluta..and where can i buy ph338 and how much is that one cost?tnx

faab said...

Hi i read ur blogs and i find it so interesting..im on my first box of gluta and planning to use germed gluta from italy..i wanna hear a piece of advice sana if its better to use germed than saluta..are u familiar with that brand?saluta daw kc is made from china..and where can i buy ph338 and how much?tnx

Anonymous said...

do you have phone number for kathy the IV therapist?

MINAKICHU said...

@anonymous-yes saluta can be administered via i.m. In fact some women do that most especially nurses like you who can self administer but i.v. Is faster I've heard. Basically you'd still achieve the same effect with time and patience irregardless of how you administer it.
@Nina-hey thanks for dropping by and visiting my blog:-)
@faab-hey sis I haven't tried germed pa so I don't have any idea about it. Hehe, with ph338 I buy it at beautyquotient.multiply.com the seller will contact you with details:-)
@anonymous-hello I'm not in touch with Kathy anymore coz I lost my phone so I just let my friend be the one do my injections:-)

Anonymous said...

Hi sis ok lang ba if 1200mg plus vit c every two weeks lang or need talaga na twice a week?

MINAKICHU said...

Hi Sid that's ok especially if your on maintenance. But if not I guess it's still ok you'll still see results but not as fast as the effect when taken twice a week. You can use ph338 or tathion 307 instead on days na your not on I.V. :-)

Anonymous said...

i'ved used saluta quite some time now... but before "when budget was a problem" i used kojie san as a major whitening soap... though the effects were gradual up until now, it did made my skin lighter and gave me a distinguishing glow... after that, i used saluta ... but now i've stopped.... coz it reached to a point that i was a bit light.... hehehe so if you wanna get lighter, before you take saluta, have your self increase in vitamin E intake.... for at least 2 weeks. since it hastens the gluta absoption...

Anonymous said...

Hello i order 2boxes of saluta at beautyquotient@multiply it comes with complete set including needles..but im a little bit worried..u say on ur blogs that ur iv and other stuff comes from them..are they all authentic?espcially the saluta because i only rely on what uv said.tnx

MINAKICHU said...

^^thanks for the great tip, good thig i am already taking vitamin e so i guess i've been doing the right thing. Thanks again for visiting and for sharing your experience with saluta:-)
^hello sis, hey don't worry coz' i'm sure she sells only authentic stuffs coz' her products have worked for me and she's highly reliable, so don't fret too much sis hehe:-)

Anonymous said...

hi sis.. authentic din kaya yun sa cheska store? mas cheaper kasi sa kanila ang saluta...? thanks sis :)

MINAKICHU said...

^hi sis, yup i'm aware that they sell authentic stuffs even if i haven't tried buying there coz' i know some people who also gets their stuffs at cheska store:-)

faab said...

Hi sis is it ok to take vit e while im already using vit.c?
Im also taking mosbeau glutathione on my nongluta iv days.and recently i purchased slimina slimming pills i havent tried yet still reading on reviews..

MINAKICHU said...

hi faab, yes i'm also doing the same thing. I also take vitamin e coz it's really good for the skin. It will help delay aging so in the long run we will see the benefits of our effort. It's never too early to start investing in our skin hehe. I am not quite happy with mosbeau though and i haven't tried slimina diet pills hehe:-)

itsmetherese said...

hi sis.. your blog is amazing. you have an exquisite collection of lvs!(soo envy!) i found myself reading one after the other..i wish i had a place like this where i can blurt my thoughts out.. I was inspired to the point that i started to make my own blog site..(though its far from done.) i really hope to get better with this soon..:( many thanks and i'll keep reading your posts! :)

Suzy said...

Nice blog sis, I love reading your review. Just like you, I have tried TAT too, but I think tagal ng effect sa akin, so nag change ako from TAT to Saluta, I bought one online at Shenelles Online Shop. Mas better nga yung Saluta kasi from 2 months of using naglighten na yung skin ko, hiyang siguro ako dito, sana tuloy tuloy na :D

I've been on saluta for over a year now i started with 2vials 2x a week but now im on once every two weeks. My complexion has remained fair tho my skin is really not that dark but what i loved the most is i think, it keeps me looking younger. i mean gluta is an antioxidant and injecting it straight thru your vain makes it more effective on fighting ageing. people always wonder why i looked young haha! anyways, ive learned to inject the thing on myself. it takes a lot of practice tho but I have to since im already based overseas. saluta is absolutely the best!

0910beh said...

hello sis..i recently just started with my second sessions of saluta glutathione..
can i see your before and after pics. im so excited to see my results too in a matter of two months and by the way, i really like your review. :)

my email is 0910beh@gmail.com :D

Marilou said...

Oh wow. What's that? Injections to look more white? I had no idea that some people wanted a whiter skin THAT much.
I'm super pale and I'm doing everything to look tan. haha
Aw we're never happy with what we have aren't we :-) ?

I hope, it's OK

Hi sis, thanks for this post. I find it very helpful. Btw, just want to ask kung okay lang ba kahit hindi kasama yung placenta? What if Saluta&Vitamin C lang? is it ok?

MINAKICHU said...

Thanks for the nice comments ladies. As for anonymous, yup it's ok to use saluta without placenta. Placenta is only an option if you want more supple or younger looking skin. Saluta is more for overall whitening:-)

ghrazee said...

hmmmm i had my first two shots of saluta a month after I started ishigaki... o far di ko pa nanotice ang changes considering I am fair skinned. I'm not even sure if san galing pimples ko baka sa vit. C... I use calcium ascorbate for my oral vit. C pero sa IV ascorbic...

btw, sis your blog is totally nice... i've been viewing your blogs ever since i got interested sa gluta again (i've been taking gluta since college to help my poor liver hehe but nganu lang uli naka balik sa gluta craze pra pummuti pa lalo)... I hope i can reqd more blogs entries from you :)

bency said...

Hi ,

i just came across in www.gma news.tv that iv skin whitener glutathione potentially dangerous.i think u should do more research on it before using it.

thanks

Anonymous said...

hello there.. i just want to know kung effective din ishi oral for maintenance?

MINAKICHU said...

Bency, ya I also saw it so I controlled my intake now. I'm taking oral mainly nowadays.

To anonymous, sis ishigaki is a good oral alternative. I also take that especially now that I rarely have my shots. I use it for maintenance na Lang :-)

Check out http://www.dealstent.com they offer great deals and discounts For Gluta IV! I bought one vial of Gluta for only P600! Forget the original price. :D

What was your starting MAC skin color?? What was your lightest??

Bianca said...

Did you stop taking Vitamin E nung nag-Gluta Injection ka, or continuous ka pa rin sa pag-take? ;-)

MINAKICHU said...

@anonymous-i am using mac c30 now. Before i use different make up brands so i dont really remember my starting mac shade..lol

@bianca-i never stopped taking vitamin e even before having saluta. Vitamin e and c has been and will be my forever staple vitamins coz they are totally awesome for the skin. It delays aging and maintains collagen formation.:)

Hi girls!

I've been using glutathione for 2 months now and I love the effect! I'm not morena, but since I love to travel a lot, my skin got dark and looks unhealthy so I started taking dosage. I've been using tationil tapos Kyusoku Bihaku for maintenance, but I heard nga na okay din yung saluta. Nagtingin ako reviews and found this post. Mukhang okay nga din based on reader's comments. Hiyangan lang din talaga. :)

Anyway, if you guys want to buy IV gluta (hehe), I can recomend someone who sells it at low price, I get complete set of tationil (w/ vit.c, butterfly, syringe etc. IV therapist nalang need nyo) for 2,250. Actually friend ko sya, yung sister nya kasi working in Korea kaya ayun. Ang alam ko meron sila shop, don't know where though. Here's her number: 0927-661-2842 ask her nalang. Her name is Jeni.

Thanks guys! nice post by the way for the blogger. :D
