Gluta-C Kojic Plus+ Shower Salt Scrub Review

Gluta-C Kojic Plus+ Shower Salt Scrub Review

Hi, guys! Last December, I availed Sample Room's latest offerings from Gluta-C. The brand introduced two new products to their Kojic Plus line - the Shower Salt Scrub and the Acne Control Toner. According to them, their Kojic Plus line will effectively deliver 4x skin whitening action using the combined powers of Glutathione, Vitamin C, Kojic Acid, and Azelaoyl Diglycinate.

I haven't used the toner yet but I have already emptied my Shower Salt Scrub. Here's my thoughts about it!

WHAT: Gluta-C Kojic Plus+ Shower Salt Scrub, 250g
PRICE & WHERE: PHP 164.75 and it's available in all leading supermarkets and drugstores.
Got mine free from SampleRoom PH.
Product Description:
Gluta-C Kojic Plus+ Shower Salt Scrub has 4x skin whitening action that combines the power of Glutathione, Vitamin C, Kojic Acid, and Azelaoyl Diglycinate for a more holistic skin whitening regimen. It gently yet effectively exfoliates to remove dead skin cells without causing dryness for that younger smoother skin and provides a cooling scent for a refreshed feeling.

How to Use:
Apply and massage gently to whole body, targeting dark and rough areas. Rinse with water. Use regularly. For best results, complete your skin regimen with Gluta-C Kojic Plus+ Face and Body Soap and Body Lotion with SPF 30.

Ingredients List:
Sodium Chloride, Glycerin, Betaine, Water, Butylene Glycol, Arbutin, Citric Acid, Sodium Sulfite, Acetyl Tyrosine, Saxifraga Sarmentosa Extract, Paeonia Suffruticosa Root Extract, Aminopropyl Ascorbyl Phosphate, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Glutathione, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Niacinamide, Fragrance, Benzophenone-4, Papain, Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate, Glycolic Acid, Kojic Acid, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Menthol, Menthyl Lactate, CI 15850, CI 19140.

Aside from the 4 whitening ingredients mentioned, the scrub also contains other well-known whitening ingredients like arbutin and niacinamide. It also has exfoliators like Papain and Glycolic Acid to help remove dead skin cells for a healthy, glowing skin. There are also moisturizers like glycerin, betaine and butylene glycol to help reduce dryness. Here's the Cosdna analysis of the ingredients. They say the scrub is suitable for all skin types but as always, patch test first and don't use if you are allergic or sensitive to any of the ingredients.

This sat in my closet for a while and when I finally opened the container, I can see that the liquid has separated from the salt. The formulation needs to be improved because the salt would settle at the bottom after a short while. After one week, I have to mix it again before I can use it.

The tub has a wide mouth so you can dip your fingers (even your whole hand if you want) but I prefer using a spoon to keep it sanitary.

before and after mixing
After mixing, the scrub has a runny consistency. It is super easy to spread plus the salt in the scrub doesn't melt easily. I was able to soak my skin and exfoliate to my heart's content. The scent is really lovely - it smells strongly of citrus and I really, totally dig it! It is calming and relaxing for me. The fragrance is quite strong so this may not be for you if you have a sensitive nose.

The product is described as cooling but I was not so sure about that during the first few times I've used it. It would initially feel hot after application. After about 5 minutes, the hotness would be replaced by a cooling sensation. I'm guessing it's because of the menthol? If you wanna experience the cooling sensation, make sure to leave this on your skin for 5+ minutes!


The tub lasted me 2 months. I haven't observed whitening effects but I guess that's understandable since I only use it once a week. If you want to take advantage of its whitening powers, you definitely need to use it 2-3 times a week.

I still think this is a great exfoliating scrub. My skin always get so soft and smooth after rinsing it off! Overall, the exfoliating and moisturizing effects are enough for me to buy this again. The 250g tub is only P164.75 (fair price if you ask me) and it is available at all leading drugstores nationwide.
