So as I’m sure you can tell I got this as a sample. I was curious to try it as I’m always on the lookout for the next best pre-makeup lightweight moisturizer. I had pretty high hopes for this one because GlamGlow is known for making some pretty great face products.
My initial reaction to opening the tiny packet and scooping some up was that it smells absolutely amazing! I think the closest thing I could describe it smelling as would be a chocolate orange. It smelt so good I wish I could have ate it. Along with the smell I also noticed that that it was definitely a balm as it was thicker than I was expecting. For a cream that claims to be lightweight I found it to be quite the opposite actually.
The packaging says it “provides a smoother flawless canvas for makeup applications”, and unfortunately I did not find that to be the case at all. My makeup application was not smooth at all. My foundation looked a little blotchy and nothing was working to fix it.
I’m not completely writing off this product, but I definitely think it requires another test. So the next time I’m in Sephora I’m going to ask for a sample.
What do you use as a moisturizer before makeup application?
