Glisten & Glow Review
I have such an amazing treat for you ladies tonight! Jill from Glisten & Glow sent some goodies over for me to review, and all I can say is I am in HEAVEN!
Glisten & Glow is owned and operated by an amazing woman named Jill and she is a DOLL! She creates customizable bath and body products for men and women alike! With over 90 fragrances to choose from, there is definitely something for everyone! Her items range from shampoo and conditioner all the way down to foot scrubs! Look at this fragrance LIST! I was sitting here with my mouth open when I saw how extensive it is, and she wanted me to pick a couple? HOW? Even better? The labels on each product are customized to whatever you want! Of course I wanted mine with my blog name on it, so all 4 items display “Cosmetic Sanctuary” on the label (which really made me happy!)
Ok moving onto the reviews! I have 4 items for you today in 3 different scents that I picked out!
8 oz Body Wash:
I picked out a body wash in the scent Flowerbomb (identical to the perfume!) and it smells so good! I may need to break down and buy the perfume to go with it. Glisten & Glow Body Wash lathers up nicely and gives me a fresh, clean feeling and the scent of Flowerbomb lingers for a bit after too. I won’t lie, I ran out of shampoo earlier this week and used this as shampoo as a last resort… and my hair held the smell for a few hours. I kept sniffing my hair and I’m pretty sure my coworkers think I’m nuts now.
Body Wash Price: $7.50 for a 4 oz Bottle and $10.50 for an 8 oz bottle
Would I repurchase? Yes. A million times yes – and in this exact scent!
4 oz Hand Sanitizer:
I go through a ton of hand sanitizer at work. I mean it. The building I work in is 80% occupied by a Mental Health Facility and there are a select few who like to do downright disgusting things to the building so you never know what’s been done. I won’t go into specifics.. but yeah. Nasty. So I regularly use hand sanitizer as a result. I have about 7 different bottles of different ones on my desk. I’m also a mom, so I use this a lot around my son, or even on my son’s hands because he’s a boy and gets into weird things that make you arch your brow a bit. When I saw Jill made them I needed it! I picked Heavenly (the Victoria Secret scent!) for it. Heavenly comes out pretty well in it! I had my doubts because it does have alcohol, and you still get a slight hint of that on use as well, but I still like it! Heavenly was probably my first “grown up” perfume that I bought, and I still love it!
Hand Sanitizer Price: Ranges between $4 to $9 depending on bottle size!
Would I repurchase?: Yes! I would probably pick another scent though
Now we’re going to get into the REALLY good stuff!
8 oz Body Butter:
The next 2 items I picked in the same scent to compliment each other. For the body butter I picked out Sangria White Peach. Holy WOW this smells YUMMY! It isn’t super strong, but its perfect for the summer month type scent (in the fall I get into spicier scented goodies). I have been using this as a hand cream after long polish swatching sessions. I’ve seen an improvement in my skin, and even my boyfriend has been saying my hands are softer than normal. I slather it on and let some soak in (I put on more than I should) and then rub it upwards on my arms. I use body butter as opposed to hand lotion for this because it’s thicker and works better for me. When I buy another Hand Sanitizer, I will probably get it in this scent as well!
Body Butter Price: $13.50 for an 8oz tub
Would I repurchase?: Again, Yes! I would repurchase in this scent (Sangria White Peach) as well as another in Flowerbomb to match my Body Wash!
Glis-tics Cuticle Oil:
Open to see Rollerball!
The newest item to the Glisten & Glow lineup is GLIS-TICS! Being a blogger for nail items, I do a number on my nails and cuticles, so cuticle creams and oils are a necessity for me! I picked out a Glis-tic in Sangria White Peach to go with the Body Butter! I really am loving this cuticle oil! It comes in a convenient roller ball, which I prefer to the bottles with brushes. I generally use this before the body butter, I roll it on generously, let sit for a few minutes and then rub it into my cuticles and over my nail bed and then let it soak in. Amazing results!
Glis-tics Price: $10.50 for a .37 oz container
Would I repurchase?: Abso-freakin-lutely. In all the different scents, I prefer Glis-tics to most cuticle oils I have found on the market
I will have another review for Glisten & Glow up within the next few days because not only does Jill carry a wide arrangement of bath and body goodies, she also carries different brands of Nail Polish! From China Glaze to OPI to Verity! She was kind enough to send me some polishes to show off for my readers as well, and I need to break that up into a post all on its own! It includes an AMAZING top coat that I cannot wait to share with you! The best part? She sells the polishes cheaper than most places I have found! So keep an eye out for part 2 of Glisten & Glow!
Ok I can’t wait too long – here is a sneak peek of whats to come in the next post:
Sation Oh My Oceania:
Sation Oh My Oceania has been on my wishlist since I saw it on Let Them Have Polish! blog. When I saw Jill included it in my box I squealed in excitement! Oh My Oceania is a gorgeous turquoise with a gorgeous blue shimmer. I got so many compliments on this color! When I put it on, it was every bit as fabulous as I hoped it would be! I imagine Oh My Oceania would look good on just about every skintone. I used 2 coats for this picture and now that I’m looking at it again (this picture was taken a few days ago) I think I might put it on again tonight…
Sation Price: $5.50 – $6.15
I am so thrilled with my Glisten & Glow products! I have been scouring the list figuring out what I’m going to buy next from her shop both in terms of Bath and Body items as well as polishes! I’ve already gotten a couple China Glaze and OPI collections from her! I’ll get many more, I’m sure :)
