Smells wonderful? Check. Soothing? Check. Lots of lather? Check. Leaves skin super soft and moisturized? Check (I didn't even have to use lotion!). Improves skin tone and clarity? Check. Absolutely worth it? CHECK CHECK CHECK! :)

This product exceeds its claims. It covers and conceals amazingly well without looking caked on. Selecting the right shade is a breeze. The foundation almost seems to self adjust to your skin tone. Even better, this it improves the texture and tone of your skin! My one complaint is that I wish the SPF was slightly higher. With my fair skin, SPF 15 just doesn't do the job.

This gloss is not sticky, glides on perfectly and comes in the most natural colors. After years of use it has NEVER dried my lips out. In fact, I hardly have to apply chapstick. I love it. Absolutey a great buy!

Cakey and Flakey
I normally stick to tinted moisturizers because I like the sheer coverage. I bought this foundation thinking it would be "clean" and not too heavy. I was wrong. The color was unforgiving...even when I mixed it with a lighter foundation I looked orange and had the infamous foundation line around my jaw. Not only that, but it was cakey and did not work well with my oily acne prone skin. Finally, the fragrance is horrible!

I Second the Editor
This product is not nearly as magical as it claims. It left my hair oily, heavy and course. My usual conditioner, though pricey, leaves my hair silky soft. Also, this product cannot reverse hair damage. It can smooth and moisturize, but ask the pros- once you've got split ends the only way to 'heal' your hair is to chop them off.

Fabulous Summer Scent
So fabulous, in fact, that I tend to wear it through the winter too. The floral scent reminds me of walking through a delicious smelling garden of lilies on a sunny day. It's not too strong and has a sense of youth combined with sophistication. My only complaint is that the fragrance tends to fade after 5 or 6 hours.

Soft and Silky Sheen
I wasn't super impressed with these products until I visited my parents and forgot my shower supplies. I used my mom's Panteen shampoo and conditioner as well as a deep conditioning treatment. I immediately noticed a drastic difference in the texture of my hair. It was course and dry (even after a deep conditioner!!)...nothing like it feels after I use Shu Uemura. The Moisture Velvet line literally makes my hair feel like silk. Although it doesn't produce a great amount of lather it cleans exeptionally well. I've noticed my hair is less greasy between shampoos and a tiny amount of product goes a long way. I've been using the same bottles for months now.

Soft, Healthy and Lustrous!
I bought this because it was so highly rated on Total Beauty and it definitely didn't disappoint. Unlike other heat sprays, this doesn't leave my hair crunchy or greasy. I can hear the product working while I straighten. It makes a slight sizzling sound, meaning the product is protecting my hair from the heat! It also smells amazing, and best of all-- super cheap! :)

I recieved a weeks-worth of this product free with another purchase. This is expensive stuff, so I had high expectations and was left very disappointed. First of all, it tastes bad..sort of like a crushed up multi-vitamin with a bit of added flavoring. Still, I've managed to gulp it down for a straight 5 days, and have not noticed a difference in my skin. This leads to a big question: Do ingestible supplements really work? Dermatologists have different opinions, but most agree, the subject hasn't yet been thoroughly studied. Healthy eating and excercise may have the same effect as as the pricey Glowelle.

I am impressed with the idea behind this product. Just like moisturizer, everyone should have a day eye cream (with SPF) and a night cream for intense repair. Unfortunatly, I didn't feel that the night or day cream gave me the intense moisture I need. My previous eye cream (Burts Bees with Royal Jelly) provided me with longer lasting moisture for the same price. Unlike L'Oreal, it also brightened my dark cirlces. At 23 years old I don't have deep set wrinkles, however, at any age moisture is key and I didn't get it from this product.
