Nestle, who along with L’Oreal are the parent company of Galderma, is promoting a beauty drink called glowelle. Their buzz word rich marketing includes references to antioxidants, phyto-nutrients, botanical fruit extracts and more. The ingredients are said to fight harmful environmental factors, staving off fine lines and wrinkles.
Certainly the natural raspberry, jasmine, pomegranate and lychee makes it sound delicious. At the same time the `clinically tested’, dietary supplement, once-a-day beauty drink is said to fight the signs of aging from the inside out.
The supplement facts list the ingredients as including: pomegranate, quercetin, green tea, coenzyme q10, lutein, zeaxanthin and lycopene. A proprietary beauty blend is also detailed as: extracts from cocoa, apple, grape seed, maritime pine bark, goji berry and white tea.
The publicity provided by Nestle suggests that glowelle was championed by a small entrepreneurial group of women within Nestle who wanted to create a product that would help women feel and look good.
The pricing appears to be around $7 for a bottle or $4 – $6 for a `powder stick pack’.
Blogger Beauty Snob said “I can’t even describe the taste but just imagine eating the most bitter yet strangely sweet drink made of perfume”. Apparently they originally tasted the pomegranate version, the raspberry jasmine version is more palatable. Their conclusion after a month was that it was a great supplement “I feel fantastic and my skin looks, well glow-y and weirdly smooth.”
Blogger The Jet Set Girls said that after mixing it was still a bit clumpy – “So, save your $40! The only supplement we’ve ever taken that gave our skin a noticeable difference is Omega-3 pills.”
Blogger The Beauty Bunny gave it a 6 out of 10 – “After drinking Glowelle in the morning, I did notice a slight improvement in my skin’s evenness and radiance throughout the day, although the effect might be replicated through staying hydrated and taking vitamins (both of which I’m notoriously bad about).”
