Growing up a tom-boy, I was never the girl who always had my hair done and makeup on. I was usually walking around with my hair in a ponytail or bun and a clean face. Overtime and as trends changed, I became more interested in makeup and skincare in general. The biggest struggle I’ve experienced is trying to look as fresh at the end of the day as I did when I began it. A typical weekday can take a toll on your skin – from the weather outside, to your workplace, to what you eat and more. This is what led me to search for multi-purpose products that I could use throughout the day.
My morning starts with the alarm going off several times. That’s when I start to calculate the very last minute that I can get up – and inevitably always getting up later, to rush into the day. That daily struggle leads me to look for products that are simple and absorb quickly so I can apply my makeup promptly after.
One morning, while procrastinating in bed once again, I was scrolling Instagram and came across Glo Skin Beauty products. I’m always drawn to a company that has clean sleek products, creates cruelty free products and offers a skin quiz. After taking the quiz, I was recommended many products for my combination skin, but was most interested in the Hydration Mist and Conditioning Hydration Cream.
When the Hydration Mist popped up online, I knew it was meant to be. Not only did this product work great after applying makeup, it was great to put on before makeup and throughout the day. This multi-tasking mist was a burst of hydration when I started to feel dry in the office. It is definitely a product I would recommend to have in your purse for those “I need hydration” moments.
The biggest test for any product is putting it on my forehead. I can rarely find a product where my skin doesn’t have a negative reaction; either it dries me out, makes me itchy, or all the above. I’ve got really dry, sensitive skin and the Canadian winter doesn’t help, so I’m always on the search for the perfect facial cream. The Conditioning Hydration Cream was the perfect moisturizer to start my day. Every morning I’d put this cream on my face and it passed the forehead test with flying colours. Not only did my forehead not react, but it absorbed the product beautifully while smelling like a fruit explosion.
Both of these products have made it to my bathroom shelf and have become staples in my daily skincare routine.
