I received a sample tube of the GlamGlow GLOWSTARTER Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in my March 2017 Sephora Play Box. I’m always thrilled to get GlamGlow samples because it is so pricey.
What’s to love?
This is a newer product from GlamGlow that’s a “hydrating, super-charged cream with iridescent illuminating pearl particles to blur, reflect, and enhance your complexion for an instant luminous finish.” It comes in 3 shades including Pearl Glow, Nude Glow and Sun Glow. I have the Sun Glow.
First up I love the scent of this product. It smells like the Volcasmic Matte Glow Moisturizer which is an orange Creamsicle scent.
The product itself is pretty thin, I’d say it’s thinner than the BECCA Backlight Priming Filter however it does apply evenly. It absorbed into my skin very quickly and I feel like it’s an amazing moisturizer. It does have “vitamins, botanicals, hyaluronic acid, and TEAOXI™ golden root technology that instantly floods skin with hydration“.
At first I wasn’t sure I liked this product but it’s really growing on me. I was expecting more shimmer but it really works as a skin moisturizer and brightener for me which I love. I cover my entire face before applying my make-up.
My only issue with GlamGlow is the price. It’s $49 for 1.7 oz/ 50 mL which is out of my price point for a product like this.
So while I do think this is a quality product it’s not something I’d buy right now.
