My 12th Sample Room Experience: Colour Collection, H20+, Gluta-C

Colour Collection:

Colour Collection is a local brand under Tupperware Corporation. They have a line of products from face creams to eye shadows and lipsticks. But the common being sampled in Sample Room is the lipsticks and BB creams. I already tried some of it through Sample Room and already reviewed the products, the links are here: Head Turner Lipstick and Pinkish Nude LIpstick. So far, I am quite happy with Colour Collection's products.

Queen Bee Lipstick

Weight: 2.4g

Shade: Queen Bee

Formulation: Stick


Finish: Semi matte (With a slight gloss upon application but disappears after absorbed)

Consistency: Cream

Coverage: Full

Lasting time: More than 4-6 hours of wear but the color is lightened (Declared lasting power is 8 hours)

Stains or transfers? It transfers on tissue or fabric

> Glides easily
> Long lasting
> Kept lips hydrated
> Slim packaging
> Lock position of the casing of the lipstick
> Leaves stain on lips
> Highly pigmented
> Affordable

> Easily transfers to tissue or fabric
> The weight of the lipstick is half the size of usual lipstick

This shade can be worn both day and night, if you want that kick-ass red lipstick for work. Not only that, red shades are not suited to my undertone, but this did. So if you have a hard time looking for a nice red lipstick to suit your undertone, try this. The price is affordable with good quality.

Even though the lipstick itself has its moisturizing property, adding a lip balm before and after use will help your lips more. Remember, anything you apply is still foreign to our body. Let's help our lips stay well hydrated and smooth.

8. Aids in improving skin elasticity

> Lasting time (But it is common for BB creams to not last long)

BB Cream usage differs from each person. Some like it and some don't. There are a variety of brands producing BB creams and since it was invented, I always wanted to try it - in search for the perfect one for me. BB creams can be a good replacement for foundations, it is milder and usually has a healing properties for skin. It really doesn't last long so I usually use BB creams for short trips or just doing errands and if I am on night shift. But I still use foundation for morning and afternoon duty in work, I don't have the privilege of time for re-touching make-up. 

The top leading brands for me in producing best BB creams are The Face Shop and Etude. In my opinion, this Colour Collection's Age Defying BB Cream can highly compete with other Asian brands but cheaper.

My first time to try Gluta-C products was through Sample Room and ever since, I am happy with the use of Gluta-C items. So now, every time I see it on Sample Room, its my priority. I now became a fan of Gluta-C. I already consumed the whole tube of the Underarm and Bikini Whitening Gel that I got last time and I already bought a new tube. Here's the link of my other Gluta-C reviews: Gluta-C Underarm and Bikini Whitening Gel.

Gluta-C Whitening Deodorant

Weight: 40ml

Formulation: Roll on bottle

Consistency: Creamy

Target: Whitening

Usage amount: Two-three rolls per armpit

Ingredients: (Taken from bottle) Water, Aluminum Chlorohydrate, Butylene Glycol, Arbutin, Citric acid, Sodium sulfite, Acetyl Tyrosine, Saxifraga Sarmentosa Extract, Paeonia Suffruticosa Root Extract, Glutathione, Aminopropyl Ascortyl Phosphate, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Smithsonite extract, Olis oil, Steareth-2, Propylene Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Octenidine HCL, Bellis Perennis (Daisy) Flower Extract, Steareth-21, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Fragrance

> Protects odor up to 24 hours (stated by Gluta-C)
> Sweat proof (A little but not in extreme heat of weather)
> No mark on dark clothes
> Alcohol and paraben free
> Affordable
> Scented but I really like the smell so I consider it as a good thing - Smells like floral soap or shampoo
> No powder left on skin after drying up

> Takes time to be fully absorbed by skin (Do not wear your shirt immediately after putting the deodorant on)
> Too creamy or sticky upon application
> Because it is too creamy it is hard to shake or takes time for the product to be on the rolling part of the bottle
> Whitening effect not seen yet (Will continue using it to see effect)

The Gluta-C Whitening Deodorant can be a good replacement for Milcu but this is too creamy compared to Milcu that is powdery.

Gluta-C Whitening Feminine Wash

Weight: 50ml

Formulation: Bottle

Consistency: Like water

Ingredients: Water, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Disodium Laureth, Sulfosuccinate, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe vera) Leaf Extract, Sodium Lactate, Betaine, Glycol Distearate, Cocamide MEA, Cocamide DEA, Butylene Glycol, Arbutin, Citric Acid, Sodium Sulfite, Acetyl Tyrosine, Saxifraga Sarmentosa Extract, Paeonia Suffroticosa Root Extract, Aminopropyl Ascorbyl Phosphate, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Glutathione, Glycerin, Bellis Perennis (Daisy Flower) Extract, Lactic acid, Trehalose, Methylisothizolinone, Chlorphanesin, Menthol, Menthyl Lactate, Propylene Glycol, PEG-55 Propylene Glycol Oleate, Fragrance, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Tetrasodium EDTA

Target: Whitening

Usage amount: A drop or two of the feminine wash

> Mild and gentle - and still feeling clean and fresh
> Contains glutathione and Daisy flower for whitening (Not yet noted after a month of continued use, still trying if it can help lighten after a few more months of continued use)
> Contains vitamin C for slowing down aging process
> Sulfate and paraben free
> Can be used everyday
> Contains aloe vera extracts for protection
> Contains lactic acid for maintaining normal pH
> Cool effect after use (my favorite effect)
> Affordable

Cons: Visible whitening effect not seen after a month of continued use. I will try to use it for a few more months.

The Lactacyd White and this Gluta-C both aimed for whitening. I hope this review can help you. If it comes on gentleness, the Gluta-C is more gentle and it has a cooling factor. So if you want a feminine wash that also whitens, you can try it both to look on which suits you more. For me, I am more comfortable with the Gluta-C than Lactacyd for its gentleness.
