Review: I was first introduced to the GLAMGLOW GLOWSTARTER Mega Illuminating Moisturizer when I received it as a part of the Sephora Birthday Gift for Beauty Insider Members. I immediately fell in love with the product so once I finished it up, I waited for the Fall Sale to pick up a full size one. The box packaging is typical of most GLAMGLOW products - bright colors with a touch of silver and white typography. This one has a pink box. The product is contained in a clear tub with a silver lining, black typography and a silver twist cap.
This claims to blur and enhance the skin while it adds luminosity and hydration. It has Hyalauronic Acid, Green Tea and other vitamins to keep the skin healthy and radiant. I love this moisturizer and only have good things to say about it, other than the price. However, I believe in investing in skincare so I do think it is worth it. A little goes a long way with this product, at least for me it does. I love how it moisturizes and illuminates my skin without the glitter. It keeps my skin hydrated all day without making it look oily. The only thing I cannot attest to is its blurring properties. I do not have large pores or any texture issues on my skin, so this is why I do not notice the blur effect. I definitely recommend this product especially if you are looking for an all-around facial moisturizer. It has a high price tag but you can always wait for the sale if you would like to save some money.
