We've now tried Glowelle on two separate occasions and our reaction was the same each time: We saw zero results. Save your funds fellow JSGers!
Glowelle claims to be a "Beauty drink dietary supplement that helps fight the signs of aging from within." It contains high levels of vitamins A, C and E along with goji berry and green and white tea extract. You mix it in 16 oz. of water and drink up. Besides not seeing any results, the stuff tastes pretty terrible. While we're fans of pomegranates and lychees in real life, the pomegranate-lychee mix was near undrinkable. We had to keep adding water and still basically shot it like it was tequila. We had the best results when we put it in a water bottle and shook it for a minute. Even still, the powder still go clumpy, so we wasted some of it.
The packaging is silly. With the week's supply, you get 7 individually wrapped packages of the powder, along with a "limited edition beauty clutch". The clutch is a small zip up pouch that you're supposed to carry your Glowelle around in. It has since become our tampon case. A smarter inclusion would be a shaker so you can mix the stuff without having to buy a bottle of Poland Spring.
So, save your $40! The only supplement we've ever taken that gave our skin a noticeable difference is Omega-3 pills. They seriously do make our hair grow faster and our nails grow stronger. You can find them at your local health food store for a fraction of the cost of Glowelle. Plus they help your heart, too!
