When I returned from the scorching hot city of Ho Chi Minh, inevitably my originally fair skin was alil tanned. After some googling, I found GNC's LAC Taut® White. I decided to take the plunge & try it out in hopes of restoring my skin tone, after all GNC is a reliable brand. What more there was an ongoing promotion, VIP Price: S$47.96.
Received the product at my doorstep on Mon & today is day 3 of consumption. Basically it comes in powder form & recommendations suggest that users consume one stick daily by mixing it with LAC Taut Collagen Drink, water or fruit juice.
When I opened the powder pack, it just smells like medicine. Eeeewww! Following recommendations, Day 1 of consumption I mixed the powder with fruit juice but the powder stayed in solid form & stubbornly refused to dissolve, instead the whole mass of coagulated powder sank to the bottom of my glass of chilled fruit juice. Thankfully I could only taste the fruit juice, no bitter/sour/weird taste from the LAC Taut® White powder.
Day 2 I mixed the powder with Vitagen which proved to be a failure too, once again the powder sits at the bottom of the Vitagen bottle but thankfully my Vitagen still tastes the same despite that mass of undissolved powder. I wonder if the poor solubility was due to my choice of chilled drinks. Hence on Day 3 I tried mixing the powder with warm green tea. To my horror, my usually clear green tea became a "dirty brown" mixture (yes, just like the chemical reactions we did back in school). The LAC Taut® White powder has successfully polluted my green tea & contaminated its taste! My green tea tasted sour & horrible :(
Honestly I'm pretty
upset with the low solubility of this product. And even more mortified
at how bad it tastes! Isn't it supposed to be tasteless or at least have
some sweet fruity taste?! And I'm only on my 3rd stick, still 27 more to go.
Woe is me X_x
