Glamglow Glowstarter

Glamglow has been a celebrated player in the skincare market since 2011 renowned for mud mask treatments the company quickly became a smash hit with celebrities across the world.  Glow starter is an illuminating moisturizer that can be worn alone or under makeup.

Full of Hyaluronic Acid,  Green tea, Jojoba oil and Shea butter this moisturizer also contains Ceramides and Caffeine.  Top that with three different shades of available highlighter and you get a magical two in one product that will have you lit from within.  The best part it smells like creamsicles.  Yes, I bought it because it smells like creamsicles. glam1

Available in three shades: Pearl, Nude and Sun Glow this cream will provide a glow to all skin tones.  Retailing at Sephora for $62 you get a 1.7oz/50ml jar of product which works out to $1.24 per ml.

The cream itself is lightweight, and a little dab goes a LONG way.  I learned this the hard way when I slathered it on and went out in public looking like a disco ball that escaped the 70’s.  This glow will shine through on a fairly full coverage foundation, and it will replace the need for a highlight. I found a drop of this with my regular moisturizer gave me a subtle glow with no makeup on.  It looks youthful and dewy, and I got the privilege of smelling like a creamsicle.

12 hours later I was still glowing this product really doesn’t stop until you do.
