I have been using the glow tonic for almost a month now, and it's A-MAY-ZING! It truly does give a nice glow to the skin. First thing I noticed is that it had a VERY strong smell! The boyfriend thinks it smells a little 'old lady-ish' I can easily see how it might be a little overwhelming to some with sensitivity to floral scents. I tend to get headaches from overly perfumed products, and although it may be strong, it's nothing I can't handle. The main ingredients are aloe vera and ginseng. I personally think it has a rose sent as well, but the package doesn't say that it contains rose water, so that could just be me. I started off only using it at night, and noticed right away almost a bit of sheen to my skin when I woke up. Did all the right things a toner should do: tightened with out drying, even skin tone and my pores were visibly smaller. NOTE! THIS PRODUCT DID MAKE ME BREAK OUT ! But, I've had this happen before with good quality products and I knew to just tough it out and deal with it for a few weeks. I don't usually get pimples but when I do they are huge and stay under the skin and never really come to a head. Sounds awesome right?! So I knew that when I started seeing small blemishes, it was just the skin loving ingredients doing their thing. Working out deep dirt and oils. Just as I suspected, the pimples cleared up in a few weeks and now my face feels smooth and flawless! I use it both in the am and pm now. This stuff works ladies...just try it (:
I was super excited to start using this product after reading rave reviews from Caroline Hirons etc. I've used this for nearly two months now and seen absolutely no difference in my skin what so ever.
I first used this once a day, then after a few weeks started using this morning and evening (as per Mrs Hirons' instructions). It's a pleasant product to use, doesn't feel too strong for my skin or anything like that. BUT - as for the way my skin looks and feels, in all honestly I have not noticed any difference. My skin tone is still just as red/patchy as before, and if anything I have had more spots than usual, even now after nearly two months of using this (I'm not prone to blemishes at all). Of course this could be due to any number of reasons, but just goes to show that the Glow Tonic has at least not improved anything for my skin.
Overall, if I had unlimited funds I would probably keep buying this as it is a pleasant and refreshing product to use - but since I don't see any point in spending money in something that didn't have any effect on my skin what so ever, I will not be repurchasing.
I have normal to dry skin, prone to redness/patchy skin tone, not prone to blemishes.

I used soft glow and my skin is fair to light, after a lot of swipes you can see the color and it's definitely cute with the glow in the bronze BUT the moment you try to even lightly blend it goes away. Basically an over priced oily highlighter

This does not blend well. Does not show up on my skin tone. I am white with a yellow underones. Is expensive and like why? Would not recommend, skip over this one.

I have finally found a bronzer light enough for my fair skin. It blends like a dream

When I swiped it on you can barely see ANYTHING on your skin and I have a fair/light skin tone. It also pulled your skin a lot and wouldn't glide on easy. It would ruin your foundation if you had that on. Returned item.

This would be perfect for a light makeup day. The pigment is very light.
Tatya from Chicago
Used this as a blush over cream foundation on my mature dry skin. Its moisturizing and quick to apply. It is a light tint on my very fair skin and quickly wears off (1 hour max). It wasn't for me, maybe it works better on bare skin.
Chelsea from NC
This product is good for that no-makeup look. It doesn't have very much pigment and if you swipe it on your face directly it will pull the foundation that you already have on off. I do like it but I do think there are better products out there especially drugstore.

Geeat lazy girl combo! Subtle enough for the pale princesses out there and buildable. Made it most of the day witbout fading but it did eventually succumb to the floeisa humidty and fade.
Not for me from Los Angeles, Ca
I bought soft glow thinking I'd get a soft warm bronze for more natural, minimal make up days or for the beach. Like others said it doesnt have enough pigment or color payoff and i have light to medium skin tone. Secondly because its not pigmented you have to press onto skin but if you have a base like tinted moisturizer or foundation, it will cause lines. So it's probably best applied on bare skin. And thirdly the product has a shiny oily texture. I would not recommend for hot days or oily skin if you want it to last
mm from new york
it is so moisturizing and really looks natural on the skin. i love to pair it with the on the glow blush too, as someone who is pale bronzer can really look harsh on my skin but this one does not! it does fade a bit if worn on its own, but it doesnt really
if ontop of foundation

This product is now a must have in my makeup routine! It goes on so creamy and soft and it's incredibly blendable. As a pale redhead - i can confirm it gives a perfect sun-kissed look without making you look un-naturaly tan. I love how quick the application proccess is , it's perfect for on the go and trips. It does ware off after a while but thats ok you just need to re-apply.
Soph from Chicago
super pretty, geeat color, blends well. a little light and a brush blends it away so hands work best. but! It gave me a horrible, itchy, blistering rash over my whole face. My skin was raw and then scabbing for a week. Thought it was maybe me but my friend is having issues now too.
Audrey from Austin tx
I got this to try because i needed a new bronzer and it was cheap. I got soft glow and it was the perfect shade!! Really cheap and good! I think its better than dior lol!
Victoria from Boston Area
I bought this in shade Soft Glow and applied it on bare skin and over foundation. In each case, no matter how many layers I applied, I saw absolutely no difference in my complexion. It did not show up at all.
I will stick with Jones Road Miracle Balm in Magic Hour for now, but that is VERY sparkly and I was looking for something more subtle. Disappointing.
Reema from Detroit, MI
I really liked this product after using it pnky 3 times, it gave the perfect sheen. Unfortunately after only 3 times, I opened it one day and the whole stick of product was stuck up in the cap
:( I really wanted to love it but now theres nothing I can do since it's all stuck in the cap.
brynlee from alabama
makes you so tan and glowy ! 10/10 recommend!
Ivy from Syracuse, NY
I love this stick! I bought the pinkest one and i use it as a blush and it's great! Goes on easily and lasts. I've had multiple compliments on it. Sometimes i tap on some powder blush on top to enhance it and cut the shine, but it's good on its own too.
Caroline from LA
Love the packaging and color of this cream bronzer. It does separate sometimes, but when it warms up it applies and spreads easily.
