I was walking through my favorite playground, Neiman Marcus cosmetics department, a few months ago and was offered what appeared to be a mini cocktail. Never one to refuse the hospitality of NM, I took a glass. What I thought was a fruity cocktail, however, turned out to be a vitamin drink called “Glowelle“. I gagged, mostly from surprise, but it tasted bitter and really awful! I almost threw the drink back at the sales associate but remembered my manners in time to say, “thank you” before running away from her. I can’t even describe the taste but just imagine eating the most bitter yet strangely sweet drink made of perfume.
A couple of weeks later, I purchased a surprise box at the Children’s Advocacy gala and guess what was in it?!?! A 7 day supply of the aforementioned “Glowelle” (left, $40 and it comes with a chic travel case). Great, just what I needed but hey, the money would go to the care of abused kids so I didn’t complain. I think the Glowelle box sat in my pantry for almost a month before I decided to drink it. I was feeling sluggish from a lot of traveling and didn’t want to take my pre-natal vitamins anymore (giant horse pills that made me gag plus my kid is almost 5, not exactly pre-natal). I literally grimaced as I held my nose and drank the goopy and thick concoction (they come in single serving packets to put in 8 ounces of water) and was surprised that it tasted much better than I remembered. Turns out the sample I tasted was Pomegranate Lychee (don’t get that!) and the one I bought at charity auction was Raspberry Jasmine (highly recommended!). I mean it’s still no chocolate milkshake from Dairy Queen but at least I don’t gag when I drink it.
I decided to do a 30 day “Glowelle” challenge ($112) in order to test its glowing skin claims and to report to you of course (it’s not just about me!). I have diligently taken it every single day and just finished the last pack. I feel fantastic and my skin looks, well glow-y and weirdly smooth. Seriously though, the biggest difference for me is how I am sleeping and how alert I am during the day. I don’t know if it’s the green tea extracts but I get a lot done each day and am full of boundless energy. The other day I actually slept 12 hours and woke up looking like I was 18 years old. The ingredients are full of antioxidants and vitamins that help your body purge the daily toxins you ingest. I actually crave it now and wish I could keep taking this but my next test is to go without it for 30 days to compare how I feel and look. I love the little packets you can take on the go– only 50 calories and you can mix straight into a bottle of water if you’re traveling. The ready made liquid bottles are more expensive and are 100 calories. If you were like me and got turned off by the taste, I suggest you try it again in another flavor. The results are really worth it. Get Glowelle here– (again, get the Raspberry Jasmine– trust me on this).
Jump to see me after 30 days of Glowelle!
