Unfortunately for many Americans, acne remains a primary skin concern whether they’re in their teens or 40s. It is estimated that more than 40 million Americans suffer from acneic symptoms, with the average age of acne sufferers rising from 20.5 years old to 26.5 years old over the past decade.


If you’ve been in any store that sells health and beauty products, you’ll know there is no shortage of products attempting to heal current breakouts and prevent future ones. Key ingredients like Salicylic Acid, Benzoyl Peroxide and Glycolic Acid are common but when and how you should use them varies. Not to mention, the rules that coincide with mixing different ingredients within your routine. We all know how much information is out there but finding the best solution for your skin isn’t one-size-fits-all.

In honor of Acne Awareness month, our licensed estheticians are answering your top questions regarding this common skin concern.

I know what acne is, but remind me.


Acne is an inflammatory disease of the sebaceous glands and hair follicles of the skin. When you think of acne, you probably imagine inflamed breakouts, but acne lesions can be noninflamed as well.

Non-Inflamed Breakouts
  • Micro-comedones: clogged hair follicle or pore in the skin
  • Open comedones: a clogged follicle that reaches the surface of the skin and opens, commonly known as blackheads
  • Closed comedones: a clogged hair follicle that stays beneath the skin, producing a white bump
  • Papules: a small, solid raised bump
Inflamed Breakouts
  • Pustules: papules filled with pus
  • Nodules: large, painful, solid lesions
  • Cysts: deep, painful, pus-filled lesions
I want to revamp my entire regimen to focus on my blemishes, which products do you recommend?

Morning
  1. Cleanser: Because cleansers spend minimal time on your skin, it isn’t necessary to spend too much time worrying about your selection. If you have a cleanser that you currently love, stick with it. If not, look for one that is gentle, yet effective at removing dirt and impurities.
  2. Toner: The second step in your regimen, toners help hydrate, prep and balance your complexion. We love Purifying Mist if you also experience oily skin.
  3. Moisturizer: Choose an oil-free and lightweight moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated. It may seem counterintuitive but using a moisturizer can drastically improve oily skin, which is a major cause of acne. By keeping the skin hydrated, you won’t have to worry about it over producing oil to compensate.
  4. SPF: if you use any product, let it be an SPF! We have a variety of options depending on your skin type and all of our bases include pure mineral sun protection, so you have no reason not to include this vital step in your daily routine.
Night
  1. Cleanse
  2. Tone
  3. Exfoliate: Introducing an exfoliant into your regimen can help speed up your cell turn over process. However, over exfoliation can be detrimental to your skin’s health. Make sure you’re not over doing it by only using these products 1-3x per week.
  4. Serum: A crucial step in fighting acne around the clock, serums boast potent, active ingredients that can help speed up your skin’s natural processes. One of our top-sellers, Renew Serum, just so happens to be for targeting acne concerns using a powerful blend of top ingredients including Salicylic Acid, Glycolic Acid and Retinol. 
  5. Moisturize (if necessary)
I keep seeing different acne-fighting ingredients, which one is the best?


Well, that really depends on who you ask. There are 5 key ingredients that support the fight against acne but each is unique in its own way.

  1. Benzoyl Peroxide: One of the most popular and effective acne-fighters, Benzoyl Peroxide eliminates P. acnes bacteria by injecting air into the follicle. Because it is so strong, we recommend using as a spot treatment, like in our Clear Skin Spot Treatment.
  2. Sulfur: Normally we want to steer clear of any ingredients that are extra drying as they can inadvertently cause the skin to overcompensate and produce more oil. Sulfur is a great alternative to Benzoyl Peroxide for its antibacterial and oil balancing properties. Find it in our Refining Mask.
  3. Salicylic Acid: A beta hydroxy acid that stimulates exfoliation in the skin, clearing pores and promoting new cell growth. Salicylic Acid reduces inflammation, smooths skin’s surface and breaks down blackheads and whiteheads. Because it takes off the upper layers of skin it allows other active ingredients in a formula to penetrate more effectively. Try Renew Serum for a healthy dose of Salicylic Acid (along with Glycolic Acid and Retinol).
  4. Sodium Chlorite: Found in Clear Skin Body Spray, Sodium Chlorite breaks apart sebum and bacteria, preventing bacteria regrowth for extended periods of time.
  5. Retinol: One of the best multi-tasking ingredients, Retinol penetrates skin cells and normalizes their behavior. It also stimulates cells deep in the basal layer, which push upwards causing a burst of exfoliation, helping keep the skin free of impactions. Pick up Retinol Smoothing Serum for a higher percentage of Retinol and added brighteners to improve the overall look and texture of the skin. 
I started a new product this week and haven’t seen any results, should I try something else?


One of the hardest parts of treating any skin concern, but especially acne, is the amount of patience required.

For an adult 20-50 years old, it can take anywhere from 30-60 days for cell turnover to occur.

This means that using a product for a week or two isn’t going to cut it. If you want to see results, you need to stick with your regimen for at least one month before you can determine whether or not to continue with a certain product. If you experience an immediate negative reaction from a product, do not continue using it as you do not want to make your skin worse.

I’ve tried everything and my acne still isn’t going away, what else can I do?


If you’ve exhausted over the counter options, it might be time to see a licensed esthetician for a professional treatment or visit a dermatologist for a prescription alternative. Depending on the severity of your acne, the relatively low dosages of active ingredients in consumer products might not be enough. Talking with a professional about your skin concerns can be incredibly beneficial in getting you the treatments your skin needs. Glo Skin Beauty offers several professional treatments available at our authorized accounts to help calm and prevent acne, including our Beta Clarity Peel and GlyPro Resurfacing Peel.

With summer in full swing, the topic of packing for vacations has become more and more common around the office. There are so many amazing products in our repertoire, making it hard to know which to bring with us and which to leave home. For the extreme beauty junkies, deciding which products to pack feels a little like picking our favorite child.

When we’re in the comfort of our own homes, it’s easy to have an extensive routine with more products than we’d like to admit. But when we’re away, the thought of lugging around 15 full sized bottles in your suitcase sounds less than ideal. And let’s not forget about our makeup products. Packing your bags makes what you thought was a simple morning routine feel more like you’re getting ready for the Oscars. Who knew you used so many products for your ‘no makeup makeup’ look.

The more you think about it, the less likely it seems you’ll be able to fit your entire routine into one bag, let alone be content to carry it around with you.


So, is it possible to travel light without disrupting your beauty routine? We think so, just follow our tips!

Tip #1: Only pack the absolute necessities.

If you’re using a mask once a week, it’s okay to leave it sitting on your vanity but for your everyday products, we suggest making room in your bag to make sure your skin doesn’t miss a beat while you’re away.

Tip #2: Reduce space with travel-sized containers.

Whether you’re checking luggage, carrying on, or traveling by car, anyone can benefit from travel-sized products. If you can, look for your favorite products in smaller bottles, like our Skin Sets. In the off-chance something happens to your luggage, we promise you’ll be glad you didn’t lose your full-sized products.

Tip #3: Multi-taskers are your BFF.

Instead of 10 products that have one purpose, pack 3 that have multiple. Some of our favorites include Contour Kit, which replaces your need for bronzer, eye shadows and highlighter and Daily Polishing Cleanser, which gently cleanses and exfoliates for a brighter complexion (the powder formula makes it perfect for travel).

Tip #4: Don’t stray outside your normal routine.


Trust us, now isn’t the time to be experimenting with new products or looks. This goes for skincare as well. Don’t test a new product on your trip (or right before), as you never know how your skin will react.

Tip #5: Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!

Traveling by plane? Combat the dryness by incorporating a Hyaluronic Acid based product into your routine. Hitting the beach for a relaxing weekend? Keep a mist in your purse for when you need to cool off. And always keep a water bottle with you to make sure you’re hydrated from the inside out.

Tip #6: Dress up your look with just one product.

Simply adding a pop of color to the lips can take your beauty look from day to night without requiring anything extra. But only pack it if you’ll really wear it– this isn’t an excuse to pack a different shade for each outfit (see Tip #1).

Tip #7: No matter where you’re traveling, make sure to keep yourself protected.

Use a daily SPF, like our travel friendly Protecting Powder SPF 20 and wear a hat to safely enjoy your fun in the sun.

Do you have any great travel tips? We’d love to hear them! Share them in the comments below.

Here at Glo Skin Beauty we are constantly developing new products to fit your needs, in addition to working on ways to update the products you know and love to produce even better results. We have lots of new SPF products- perfect as we enter the summer months (and for year-round protection). Additionally, a few of our current products have updates to formulas and claims and we even have new products for our professionals!

SKIN Daily Mineral Defense SPF 30

If you have Dry Skin you may have noticed that there was no suncare option specific to your skin type in our regimens. Finding the perfect ingredients to balance the need for sun protection while also adding hydration was not an easy task but we are excited to finally reveal our finished product. Daily Mineral Defense SPF 30 offers broad spectrum protection in the form of Zinc Oxide (13.5%) plus Sodium PCA and Oleosome Technology to help maintain moisture content in the skin.

Solution Skin Sets

You’ve tried our Regimen Skin Sets, now try our Solution Skin Sets! Our three most popular solutions: Firm Skin, Calm Skin and Clear Skin have been transformed into take anywhere sets. They’re perfect for anyone wanting to test out new products or take their favorites with them when they travel. All three sets contain a cleanser, serum, moisturizer and Protecting Powder (Translucent), now with SPF 20!

Oil Control Emulsion

Our popular Clear Skin Solution moisturizer now has an updated formula that really lives up to its name. If you or your client is looking to control shine while maintaining a balanced complexion, look no further than Oil Control Emulsion. Included in our new formula is Microsponge Technology to not only hydrate but also mattify the complexion for up to 8 hours.

BEAUTY Protecting Powder SPF 20

The perfect product to toss in your bag for readily accessible sun protection. Our new Protecting Powder SPF 20 now contains 24.6% Titanium Dioxide and 24% Zinc Oxide for broad spectrum sun protection. Plus, we’ve added Green Tea Extract for its added antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

PROFESSIONAL Pre and Post Extraction Duo

Extractions are a popular request in the treatment room, so we’ve created a duo to help aid in the removal of comedone, while also soothing and purifying extracted areas. This limited edition value set also contains a small Mask Brush to help easily apply product.

Redness Relief Powder

Redness Relief Powder is a favorite for clients suffering from redness and is now available in a tester component for professional use. Apply after services that induce redness, such as chemical exfoliation treatments and waxing, or on patients with Rosacea.

We have a lot to thank Moms for: our good genes, our diligent skincare routine and the sound advice to never let us pluck our eyebrows too thin. Yet every Mother’s Day, it’s a struggle to find the perfect gift to thank them for everything they do.

To help you out, we’ve rounded up our top picks we know Moms will love- whether your gift is for your Mom, a new Mom, a dog Mom, or yourself.

Lip Crayons

Buy one or all thirteen, these crayons are perfect for the on-the-go Mom. They’re the perfect size to throw in a purse– even though the long-lasting formula requires little to no touch ups. Whether it’s a subdued wash of color or a bold statement lip, our Cream Glaze and Suede Matte Lip Crayons are an easy pick.

Phyto-Active Eye Serum

The perfect pick me up for Moms who might not be getting their full 8 hours of rest. This silky serum adds critical moisture and reduces puffiness and dark circles, helping maintain a youthful glo.

One of the best aspects of makeup is its ability to transform your look. We’re proud to offer a mineral makeup system that was specifically designed to work as an extension of our skincare line. There’s nothing worse than testing out a new beauty product at the risk of sacrificing your clear skin.

From our bases that contain powerful antioxidant blends to our expansive color range that offers customizable color payoff, all products boast talc free formulas and are backed by PETA.

With such an extensive beauty line, it was difficult for our staff to choose just one single product. A common theme that runs through the selections is everyone’s preference of multi-tasking products. It’s a double win in our book to love a product that has more than one use!

Whether you’re new to Glo Skin Beauty and looking for top product recommendations or are a loyal user looking to add a new must-have to your routine, keep reading to find which products we just can’t live without!

We would love to hear your favorite skincare product picks, let us know in the comments! 

PRIME Sarah H., International and Inside Sales Manager

Tinted Primer SPF 30: My everyday go-to! I cannot live my best life without Tinted Primer SPF 30. Seriously. I wear it alone when I’m just heading to the grocery store, or with Pressed Base when I’m amping up my foundation. But this guy leaves my skin feeling soft and protected, while allowing my natural glo to shine through.

EYE Anna D., Director of Brand Development

Liquid Ink: I am and will always be obsessed with a good cat eye, it’s my go to eye look so this liquid liner is a must for me. I love how easy it is to create a subtle kitten eye or a more dramatic winged statement that lasts all day.

Molly O., Accounts Payable

Cream Stay Shadow Sticks: I’m not usually one to spend much time on eye makeup, and with these I can have a great look in a matter of minutes! These were recommended to me when I started here at Glo, and I have since shared my love for these with all my friends and family. Now none of us can be without them!

Itzel C., AR Clerk

Cream Stay Shadow Stick (Beam): These shadow sticks are so easy to use. I love using the shade Beam for a quick all over the lid eye shadow look or simply adding it in the inner conners of my eyes!

Lindsay G., Marketing Programs Manager

Cream Stay Shadow Stick (Pitch): I love a really dark black liner, and because color on my lids tend to crease (and disappear), Cream Stay Shadow Stick in Pitch is my best friend. I use the small end of the Dual Brow Liner Brush to pick up the product and then apply Pitch as my eyeliner. I use this particular brush because I like the precision I can achieve. Then if I’m feeling like a little smoky eye, I use the larger end of the Dual Brow Liner Brush to smudge the liner out. Pitch is also great in the waterline if you’re going for that dramatic look!

Krista B., Senior Digital Designer

Shadow Palette: Love the rich mix of matte and shimmer shades these palettes have to offer. Easy to create endless eye shadow combinations for any day or night look occasion.

Amanda V., International Educator

Lash Thickener & Conditioner: Mascara was one of the first products I purchased when I started wearing makeup. I’m obsessed with a luscious lash look and Lask Thickener & Conditioner is a game changer when it comes to Glo Skin Beauty‘s already fantastic mascaras- it prepares eyelashes perfectly to create a more full, voluminous lash look.

BROW Jenna P., Graphic Designer

Brow Collection: When it comes to brows, I’m very particular about the products I use. Since I have very light brow hair, I’ve searched high and low for the perfect brow product that stays all day, is easy to use and is a perfect match for my hair color. I love the convenience of the Brow Collection because it’s an all-in-one kit that gives me brows that wow!

Robin O., VP Marketing

Precise Micro Browliner: This is one of those I-had-no-idea-I needed-this-until-I-found-it beauty essentials. I’ve long known how important it is to shape the brows to frame the face. This becomes an every day beauty must when you have light blonde brows as I do. I thought I had it covered until we introduced this amazing new brow pencil format! So natural looking, so easy to use. Crazy in love!

CHEEK Janeena B., Senior Global Makeup Artist/Educator

Cream Blush: I’ll admit, even as a makeup artist, at first, any cream blush on the market was a little intimidating. Fast forward five years and let’s just say, that fear has turned into a full blown love affair! Anyone who knows me can attest to my infatuation with Cream Blush. Oh and I’m not just talking about one shade, I love ALL four of them! Not only are these the ultimate multitaskers that can be worn on eyes, cheeks and lips, the formula feels ultra light on the skin, giving a “lit from within” look.

Sarah R., Senior Graphic Designer

Cream Blush (Guava): I absolutely love this Cream Blush. Guava is the perfect shade and the consistency is so wonderful. I love using the texture brush to apply it.

Angela M., Marketing Programs Associate

Contour Kit (Medium to Dark): I love how versatile the Contour Kit is! I use it to contour, highlight, for eyeshadow and just to give my face an all over glow. I also love how the deepest shade doesn’t have any shimmer like a lot of other contour kits I’ve used. Instead, it has a velvety matte finish that looks natural.

LIP Stephanie S., Director of HR

Suede Matte Crayon: The Suede Matte Crayon is unbelievably smooth and long-lasting. I have literally eaten a cheeseburger and still had full lip color on afterward! Bombshell is my favorite, classic red.

Jennifer O., Recruiter

Suede Matte Crayon (Rumor):I have always been very hesitant to wear a bold lip for a few reasons. One is my fear of looking like a clown after application since most dark lipsticks haven’t always stayed in place. Second, has always been the struggle to find the right shade for my fair to pink-ish skin. It’s been a lifelong struggle until I tried Rumor. Rumor is truly the first bold lip that isn’t too dark, stays put, doesn’t dry out my lips and overall makes me feel confident about trying a bold lip look! I’ll never leave for date night without it!

Martha C., VP Sales

Lip Gloss: I’m obsessed with our lip glosses! I love the formula. It isn’t sticky like other glosses and the shades are amazing! Our lip liners are incredible too! They go on very smooth and the shades are awesome!

TOOLS Cyncia C., Purchasing Manager

Gentle Makeup Remover: My skin appreciates Gentle Makeup Remover at the end of every day by being delicate and leaving my skin soft and smooth. Not only does it easily wipe away my foundation, but it removes eye and lip products like a breeze!

Simone E., Social Media Lead

Contour/Highlighter Brush 107: With our recent rebranding came all new brushes that are not only incredibly functional, but also gorgeous to look at! I have so many favorites, but my must-have is definitely the Contour/Highlighter Brush 107. It’s redesigned soft, round end is perfect for contouring, while the tapered end is great for precise product application.

April is without a doubt a ‘spring’ month, but with all the rainy days, it can seem a little more gloomy than one would hope. If you’re struggling to get into the springtime mood and not yet ready to break out your pastels and florals, we suggest looking at our Bon Voyage Eye Shadow Quad to achieve an easy spring eye shadow look. It’s the perfect neutral palette to complement any skin tone, with hints of cream, blush, taupe and brown. Use one or two colors for a simple wash over the eye lids or amp it up for a softer version of your favorite smokey eye.

Looking for more inspiration? Our Sr. Global Makeup Artist/ Educator Janeena shows you how to create a stunning spring eye shadow look, perfect to pull you out of your April slump.

Prep

As a makeup artist, Janeena knows the importance of prepping skin before makeup application. For this look, she prepped her skin with her favorite skin products to complement her combination skin including:

She then used the following beauty products to achieve a healthy bronzed complexion:

Apply Shadow Primer to eye lids to ensure your look lasts all day.

Step 2

Sweep shade Postcard over the entire eye lid using 301 Eye Base Brush.

Step 3

Step 4

Use 305 Crease Shader Brush to apply shade Sandbar to the crease and lower lashline.

With the fairly recent rise in #InstaBrows, it should come as no surprise that the brows are an incredibly important feature of the face. Aside from their health benefits (keeping sweat, water and debris out of your eyes), brows are vital to conveying emotion through nonverbal communication.

But just because your brows are important facial features doesn’t mean you have to spend all day transforming them. For us, a transformation doesn’t relate to the time it takes to complete, but more the final look you’re trying to achieve. Whether you’re looking to amp up or completely change your brows, we have buildable products that will work for any look.

Though we’ve loved seeing the #InstaBrows trend, here at Glo Skin Beauty we usually go for more of a natural brow that simply enhances our natural shape and fill. Using just three products, you can achieve your very own brow transformation. Follow along with our easy guide below!

Prep

Itzel’s skin was prepped with our Oily Skin Regimen products: Purifying Gel, Purifying Mist, Oil Free Moisturizer and Oil Free SPF 40+. She’s wearing Satin Cream Foundation in shade Natural Fair and Liquid Bright Concealer in High Beam.

Step 1

Using light, hair-like strokes with the Precise Micro Browliner, define the brows. Be sure to fill in any sparse areas.

Why We Love Precise Micro Browliner
  • Gives an effortless, light fill to the brow
  • Wax-based formula lasts up to 10+ hours
  • Easily intensifies brows
  • Comes in 6 shades

Step 2

Using the 110 Full Coverage Camouflage Brush and Under Eye Concealer, clean up the brow and add more sculpt. 

Why We Love Under Eye Concealer
  • Helps create a more tailored brow
  • Highlights brow bone
  • Comes in four shades, with each shade containing a lighter and darker option
  • Great for any skin type

Step 3

Finish off your brow transformation by applying Brow Gel using an upward and outward stroke. 

Why We Love Brow Gel
  • Adds the right amount of sheen
  • Keeps every hair in place
  • Gives a groomed look
  • Provides longer wearability to the look

What is your go-to brow look? Tag us in your brow transformation on social using #DiscoverYourGlo.

If you love something, let it go. If it comes back to you it’s yours forever. Well, we can’t guarantee that it’s here forever, but it’s back for now! After momentarily pulling this fan favorite from our line, we’ve decided to bring it back. Vita E Essential Cream will now be part of our Calm Skin Solution.

Using a moisturizer twice daily is essential to keeping skin hydrated and preventing any water loss. Using a moisturizer that also addresses your skin concerns, however, can help you obtain both immediate and long term results specific to your skincare needs.

Vita E Essential Moisturizer

For those who were fans before Vita E Essential Cream left our product lineup, rest assured- the formula you know and love remains the same. For those who are new to Vita E Essential Cream, it is a medium weight, conditioning and strengthening moisturizer that helps calm redness. It is particularly popular among our sensitive and rosacea clients. This versatile moisturizer features key ingredients such as Hesperidin, to strengthen capillaries and help reduce redness; Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, to target inflammation and repair skin; and skin-strengthening Squalane to help skin retain critical moisture. Additionally, you’ll find a combination of conditioning oils and emollient silicones to promote silky, smooth and strengthened skin and Licorice which acts as an anti-inflammatory and provides brightening benefits.

Vita E Essential Cream vs. Balancing Moisture Remedy

If you’re familiar with our Calm Skin Solution, you’ll know that we already offer a moisturizer in this category: Balancing Moisture Remedy. Although both moisturizers are part of the Calm Skin Solution, they offer unique benefits.

Vita E Essential Moisturizer

Use: designed to hydrate and condition, strengthen and repair while helping reduce inflammation and redness

Skin Type: normal to dry; not recommended for oily

Skin Concern: sensitivity and redness, aging, hyperpigmentation

Formula: medium-weight

Key Ingredients:

  • Hesperidin: strengthens capillaries, helps reduce redness
  • Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7: reduces inflammation, helps repair skin
  • Conditioning Oils and Emollient Silicones: promotes silky, smooth skin

Excludes: parabens, gluten, soy, dyes

Balancing Moisture Remedy

Use: designed to hydrate and calm irritable skin while offering botanical brightening

Skin Type: all, but especially combination to oily

Skin Concern: sensitivity, hyperpigmentation

Formula: lightweight

Key Ingredients:

  • Peony and Goldenrod Extracts: botanical brightening complex
  • Aloe Vera: anti-inflammatory, healing
  • Hyaluronic Acid: offers intense, lightweight hydration

Excludes: parabens, gluten, nuts, soy, fragrance, dyes

How to Use

For extremely dry, sensitive skin, we recommend using Vita E Essential Cream morning and night, alongside our other Calm Skin Solution products. If the weight of Vita E Essential Cream is too heavy, choose Balancing Moisture Remedy as your morning moisturizer and Vita E Essential Cream for your nighttime moisturizer. For someone with combination to oily skin, choose Balancing Moisture Remedy for both morning and evening, to reduce redness without weighing down the skin.

No matter your skin type, skin concern or product assortment, incorporating an SPF is essential to overall skin health. As part of our Calm Skin Solution, we offer Solar Shade SPF 50, a lightweight all-mineral sunscreen that provides environmental protection for delicate, sensitive skin. Our other sun protection options are Oil Free SPF 40+ for oily skin and Moisturizing Tint SPF 30+ for any skin type looking for an SPF with a hint of color to provide even coverage.

Working for a beauty company can really do wonders for your skin. Some might even say we’re living the dream, with countless products (and professional services) right at our fingertips. It’s safe to say we’ve tested everything and have each settled on our own favorites.

On the flipside, with so many amazing products, it can be hard not to overdo the testing and end up making matters worse. For many of us, our initial days at Glo involved adding in 5, 10, 15 new skincare products into our routine all at once. As many of you know, this is not advised and has caused moments of despair, wondering if our skin woes will ever be behind us.

Needless to say, they are, and we’re all living a (mostly) amazing skin life. With all of our individual product testing behind us, it’s safe to say we’ve all settled into our routines based on our individual skin types and skin concerns, though we continue to test new products as they come in!

Whether you’re new to Glo Skin Beauty and looking for top product recommendations or are a loyal user looking to add a new must-have to your routine, keep reading to find which products we just can’t live without!

We would love to hear your favorite skincare product picks, let us know in the comments!

CLEANSER Lindsay G., Marketing Programs Manager

Daily Polishing Cleanser: I use this multi-tasking cleanser every night, and I don’t know what I would do without it. This powder formula (travel friendly!) turns into a perfectly creamy cleanser when you add water, it exfoliates AND targets all of my skin concerns – breakouts, uneven texture, hyperpigmentation. What more could you want? My skin has changed dramatically since I’ve started using Daily Polishing Cleanser.

Robin O., VP Marketing

Gentle Cream Cleanser: This cleanser changed my skin! I have always battled to find that delicate balance between thoroughly cleansing my oily skin and gently treating my sensitive skin. This makes finding the right cleanser tough to do and so critical to dialing a daily regimen. This is an item I can’t be without, it washes the day away while leaving my skin feeling soft and balanced.

Sarah R., Senior Graphic Designer

Hydrating Gel Cleanser: This is the perfect cleanser for my combination skin. It leaves my skin feeling clean without over drying it. I don’t know what I would do without it!

TONER Sarah H., International and Inside Sales Manager

Balancing Mist: Balancing Mist is my new bff. It smells so good and feels so light, but helps balance my skin – hydrating, without aggravating my oily t-zone. I use this product day and night after cleansing, and my skin looks fresh, feels soft and hydrated. Plus, the mister is just the perfect amount of spray, and I don’t have to use cotton pads to apply a toner! Couldn’t get easier.

MOISTURIZER Janeena B., Senior Global Makeup Artist/Educator

Moisturizing Tint SPF 30+: Moisturizes my desert-like skin, adds a hint of color to even any complexion, provides a beautiful dewy finish, quick and easy to apply AND protects skin from the sun’s harmful rays? Sign me up!! I use Moisturizing Tint SPF 30+ on the daily and if I accidentally go without, I feel incomplete, like I forgot my phone or something.

Cyncia C., Purchasing Manager

Oil Free Moisturizer: I love our Oil Free Moisturizer because it is lightweight and gently hydrates my oily skin, without giving me that mid-day shine.

Krista B., Senior Digital Designer

Phyto-Active Light Moisture: This is my go-to must have for daily hydration because it’s light yet super moisturizing. A perfect balance for my skin, not too heavy or rich.

BOOST Anna D., Director of Brand Development

Daily Hydration+: You know it’s one of your favorite products when if you run out of it without a backup you freak out a little. This unique formula adds intense hydration without feeling heavy (great for my oily skin). It only takes a few drops every morning to give my skin an instant refresh.

Amanda V., International Educator

Daily Hydration+: When I tried this product the first time I was shocked with the lightweight consistency and how quickly it quenched my dehydrated skin. With how much I travel for Glo, it is so important for me to include hydrators in my skincare routine since planes have such a low amount of humidity. Daily Hydration+ resolves my dehydrated skin issues while helping ‘seal in’ Daily Power C and help my skin feel smoother and prepped for makeup.

Martha C., VP Sales

Daily Power C+: This product is amazing!  It has helped brighten my skin and it’s great to use before I put on my foundation in the morning! Love Love Love this product!  

RENEW Jenna P., Graphic Designer

Refresh Facial Polish: This scrub is my morning pick-me-up not only all year long, but especially in the winter months! The exfoliating beads leave my face smooth, refreshed and without flaky skin.

Molly O., Accounts Payable

Pumpkin Enzyme Scrub: I decided to buy this in the fall because it seemed seasonally appropriate, and will now be sure to have it year-round. It smells delicious and keeps my skin looking and feeling fresh!

Jennifer O., Recruiter

Gentle Enzyme Exfoliant: Because my skin is sensitive I’ve found it’s hard to get a deep down clean that doesn’t cause more redness to my already blotchy skin. I recently added our Gentle Enzyme Exfoliant to my routine after I wash my face (at least a few times a week) and I couldn’t be happier! On the days after I exfoliate, my skin feels super clean without any irritation and my face looks so much brighter!

CALM SKIN SOLUTION Angela M., Marketing Programs Associate

Soothing Gel Mask: I always worry about what reaction my sensitive skin is going to have to masks, but Soothing Gel Mask has been a perfect weekly treat for me. The coolness of the gel and fresh cucumber smell make it so relaxing, I feel like I’m getting a spa treatment at home.

Simone E., Social Media Lead

Corrective Soothing Serum: I tried Corrective Soothing Serum as a last ditch effort to help get my skin back to normal and to my surprise, it actually worked! It truly helps restore balance and moisture to the skin, which I desperately needed after over exfoliation. I would highly recommend this to anyone whose skin seems out of balance, even if you don’t normally identify as having sensitive skin.

CLEAR SKIN SOLUTION Itzel C., AR Clerk

Clear Skin Spot Treatment: For about a year now, I have been using this product all over the face before my moisturizer. I have noticed a big difference in my breakouts as well as my skin texture and blemishes. I love it!

Stephanie S., Director of HR

Renew Serum: Renew Serum has been a game-changer for me. The active ingredients immediately improve my acne-prone skin, as well as fight the signs of aging long-term. I have gifted this to friends and family so now we’re all obsessed!
