REVIEW: GT Bleaching Cream

I've always been on the lookout for cheap yet effective products, it be locally or internationally. I personally choose the former as it is synonymous to cheap, right? And so I've come across this product, GT Bleaching Cream from GT Cosmetics. I first got introduced to this by my aunt. She's actually using it on the darkspots on her face. She said it was effective, the only thing bad about it she said was that her skin reddens, and it sometimes stings. These things were actually normal when you use their products. And so upon hearing this, I got swayed and bought myself one in SM Department Store. It's cheap, spending only Php 155 for a box. You can see the actual picture here, posted in their page.

I wasn't actually planning on putting it on face, because I can say that I pretty much have blemish-free face and I'm scared on over-applying creams on my face that I won't look like my age anymore, right? Even though the cream claims to be have an anti-ageing formula and all that. But that's my preference! :) It's normally for the face so forget what I just said! The cream is actually yellowish, really creamy-thick and almost odorless.
 
 
I've read that the proper procedure in applying this is by: (you can also follow the manufacturer's direction here)
1. Cleaning the problem area, by washing it with or without soap
2. Drying it and putting enough cream evenly on the skin
3. Repeating these steps for three consecutive days.

So easy, don't you agree? I do it on night time, makes it more hassle-free. I also use not-too tight clothes. I advise using sleeveless ones so it won't get irritated that much. On the 4th and after-4th days, I just waited for it to peel. It stung but not to a point that I could not take it anymore, only a little. I apply anything but the cream, not even deodorant. Good thing I have no BO on casual/normal days. Of course, excluding the days when I sweat myslef to death playing sports activities or at times when it's really hot! Haha! Also, when I take a bath, I use mild soaps and simply put lather on it, careful not to rub and all. So.. here's a picture of my UA skin about to peel off. (Sorry for the very eww picture. LOL) You can see how dark my underarms are! :(


The white spot in the middle was the point where it started to peel. I'm an impatient person so I peeled it off totally. It is really advised to let nature do its things, and let it peel off by itself. I just couldn't wait any longer!! And so after only a day or two, this is how my UA looks like!!


The peeling hasn't stopped yet but you can see a really big change, right? The lines were a bit red but anything else, pretty much looks okay. I thought my UA is hopeless and that I would need a help of a professional dermatologist at par with Dra. Vicky Belo! I just don't know however how to maintain this. The brand said that it is again not advisable to not use any products that aren't part of their line. In any case, do you have any advice, girls? 

In my opinion, the cream is really effective, I just don't know whether this magnificent UAs will last long! :|

Update: AHOY! I already contacted GT cosmetics on how to maintain my underarms and here's what they said:
"Hi there! Thank you for trusting GT Product. It is important to exfoliate underarm even for at least once a month to avoid accumulation of dead skin around your underarm. Doing so may help lighten your underarm and prevents you from having chicken skin. Please do not apply GT Bleaching cream if you are planning to have a waxing treatment on your underarm. Give at least 1 week interval before and after waxing." - GT Cosmetics

See they are really that concerned to their avid customers! Thumbs up!!

  1. Mga ilang days after application bago mawala ang redness? I'm starting to worry, ang pangit kasi para akong may kalmot ng pusa sa cheek :-/

    1. Hi Hane! I only used the cream on my UAs eh. I don't exactly know if the same goes when it's used on the face. The redness subsided for 2 days or so. I applied a moisturizing cream pala, actually from their line also, it also serves as whitening cream. I didn't put hydrocortisone as it's recommended not to use anything out of their line. Eh they don't have one! But I guess, it's your choice to use anything, especially if it's trusted naman! :) Hope this helps dear!

  2. Thank you very much for the reply, I tried it on my UA too. It darkened, peeled-off and then it came to its original color, the way I see it seems like no whitening effect for me at all eh. :( But I'll give it a second shot this time with the cream,'cause it's really itchy... thanks for the tip! :)

  3. Hi i had this scar i got from a burn right beside my left knee. I started applying gt cream after reading ur review and voila! After a week-ish, my scar is hardly noticeable! Ive got some before and after pic to document any improvements. It realy did wonders for me, bt u have to be very very patient because at first the area where i applied the cream became much darker but after the 3rd day i let it rest and on the 6th day it started to peel.tnx so much for introducing gt cream. Now i found a very effective scar remover!

    1. Hi Miss Harlene! Nice to hear that it worked for you. You just have to be religious in applying this! As for my situation, since I used it for my underarms, I have to do it like once a month or every other month so that it wouldn't go back, and of course since I use deodorants. (Maybe I should work next on seaching what's the best underarm whitening out there, since this is a really huge problem for me! LOL). Hope my review helped!!

    2. I think you just have to wait for the redness to subside dear. The redness is caused by the peeling.. :)

  25. Hello! I just want to share, I learned about GT bleaching cream through this post, and I just want to thank you for doing your review.:) I was convinced enough to try it out, and luckily, it worked for me!:)) I really couldn't believe it at first, kasi sobrang dami ko nang whitening deo and creams na tinry pero walang gumana. This one, meron talagang peeling, na parang yung dark layer talaga yung natatanggal. Sabi ng husband ko parang pumuti daw UA ko. HAHAHA.:)) grabe, kala ko talaga wala na kong pag-asa! this product freed me from years of UA insecurities! :))

  28. Hi Eliza Karla! I've read this review a week ago and was convinced to try the product..hehe luckily it really works.. =) Naglighten talaga ang underarms ko after the peeling..medyo makati lang xa.pero after a few days, nawala na yung itchiness at redness.. okay lang kaya mag apply nito ulit after a few days? I want to lighten my underarms more..Nangitim kasi ng bonggang bongga after I gave birth. =)
