I really can't get on with this product.
It's too orangey on my fair skin,and I find it difficult to blend the brown streaks into the face after the bronzer beads have burst,if you rub too much it flakes,if you don't blend enough it streaks.
Also it does leave the face a bit shiny,it really doesn't look natural on me,basically I think it entirely depends on your skin tone if this product works for you.
An okay moisturiser,nice scent and packaged in a convenient tube.
I love it. Amazing balance of 'fake tan' colour + dilution. A man could wear this if he were self-conscious about looking made-up, yet also self-conscious about bare/pale skin. I would recommend it to anyone. Moisturizing factor is satisfactory. Colour is a peachy tint, not too orange or brown. doesn't break down into patchy pore-emphasizing oil wells. This is what I want EL daywear tint release to be. It looks totally natural and you can build it up in two layers if you wish to go more intense.
1. It will take a few minutes to truly sink in but lasts after that.
2. The price means I don't worry about wasting it. I have a couple of very very expensive tinted moisturizers claiming to give a natural tan/healthy look but the one is too intense (ok for liquid bronzer) and the other breaks down/looks fake/many other issues. .very little compares...i think i have tried everything for tinted moisturizers that are supposed to give u a tan.except lush's one but whatever.
No coverage. You will need a bit of concealer and (SPF?) powder if you want a very finished look.
Looks good with berry lipsticks. Fulfills my winter vanity.
In winter, usual base can look overdone (but u feel bleh without base because skin isn't as vibrant/healthy) plus skin is dry--and this takes care of both points.
i use this product as an alternative to foundation. it doesn't really give much coverage so i would recommend using a concealer too, but it does blur out imperfections and gives you a sun kissed glow. love it!
I bought this product just before taking a very sunny holiday as I was looking for a tinted moisturiser which would somewhat balance my skin tone and provide a, 'glowing' look. I wanted to use the product instead of a foundation and use it as a base for my minimal summer look. The product is really good, and besides the fact it contains no SPF (!) I cannot find any fault with it. The scent is quite fruity and nice, and you only need a tiny amount to cover your whole face.
I have been told Origins VitaZing is much better, but after all the month's expenses I just couldn't afford to spend £30 per bottle. I would like to try VitaZing after Glow Job but I think GJ is definitely a keeper in the make up bag and the price is a real plus point (£7-13).
I really want to like this but I don't. It makes me look, not exactly orange but perhaps apricot coloured, to continue the fruit theme. You need very good skin to get away with using this on its own. It does not feel particularly moisturising but leaves a bit of a greasy sheen. It is bearable to me if I mix with my usual tinted moisturiser but I would not repurchase.
So I'm a pale olive and tanning products dont always show up well on my skin. I called for this from the UK after reading the reviews on MUA and was very excited because I've been looking for something to perk up my look when I wear little/no makeup.
Unlike most other reviewers I had zero problems in bursting micro-pearls. I literally just put it on my face and you work it in and the colour shows up. I did need more than a pea size for my face. Its completely sheer but you can build up the colour a little and I really like that.
I have these tiny blackheads around my forehead and chin-the kind that you can't really get out that easily but don't bother you all that much either. This didn't serve as an irritant(so no redness/breakouts/aggravations) but it definitely made them sting a lot! So now I wear it on my cheeks and nose mostly.
TIP-Don't put all of it on at one go. Once the colour goes on-it doesnt spread as easily on the face. Dab it on and then massage it in. (Obvious I guess but its a mistake I made)
EDIT-After using a few times(And I have no idea how I could miss this)-It can come off as very orange in a very ommpa-loompa fashion. So now I just mix it with my BB cream and it doesn't show as much as I would want it to.
If you have the budget for it, I would say go for the Dior Glow maximiser or the NARS Hot Sand Illuminator or the Becca Skinperfector or the Clinique Uplighting luminiser thingie. For a Drugstore, go for the Revlon Photoready or L'Oreal Magilumi. I *think* NYX makes something similar too.
Point it-NOT worth the money.
I just LOVE it! I'm really fairskinned and this product gives me just the right tan (you can't see a difference between my face and the rest... but I seem less pale...) and on top of that it gives a really nice glow... I giggled at the name and I loved the packaging as I always love the Soap and Glory packaging...
I love this product! It is so great for moisturising and it gives you a natural bronzed look. Definitely going to buy again xxx
I have spent years looking for an illuminating lotion-slash-tinted moisturizer that would do the trick for day, lending what Truman Capote called "a breakfast cereal air of health". I have tried TM's by Laura Mercier, Lavera, Boots, Smashbox, MAC, Stila, and BeneFit. I have tried illuminating lotions by Nivea, Aveeno, MAC and Clarins. This is EXACTLY what I was searching for. Gives a marvellous natural glow and suits even my fair-to-medium skin with no orange Ompa Loompa tidemark. Used with a touch of Clarins concelear and a light sweep of pink powder blush and mascara this is a staple for what the French term "le No-Makeup Look". Be sure to break all the bronze bead-thingys i=on the back of your hand prior to applying. A hard-working, economical treat of a product. I plan to buy 10 tubes prior to returning to Canada.
I picked this up in Boots after seeing a few good reviews - it was half price when I bought it.
Initially I loved this product, I used it for a week every morning and if going out on an evening, it gave me a subtle glow and it also contains these little particles which burst and reveal bronzer, again very subtle and made the skin look lovely. Consistency is a little thicker than a moisturiser, so I decided to use less moisturiser then add a little of this over the top.
However, after 5 days I started getting a few spots, didn't think anything of it initially as I am prone to the odd breakout - although after 3 days of waking up to a few more spots I decided to stop using it. I stopped getting spots 2 days later. Thinking this maybe coincidence (due to eating loads of rubbish over the festive period washed down by copious amounts of booze!!!) I started using it again, within 2 days I had another mini break out, followed by a few more, so I stopped using immediately and the break out has cleared up.
This would be an excellent product - however the spots just aren't worth it - steer clear if you prone to the odd breakout!!
