This product is fairly new on the market. Just recently released by Rose Link UK, it’s formulated with 100% natural ingredients that assist you in making your skin fair and radiant. Its sister Hello Glow Facial Cleansing Powder claims more or less the same but I only got to try this one.
Many of you ask me if there’s any product that can uplift a dull looking complexion – THIS is it! The results are instantly noticeable. I have to say, the name of the product truly suits it. It’s a light smooth powder with a palatable sweet biscuit-y aroma (please read update below); I really feel like tasting it. The scent is a mix of honey and coconut and it lingers for some time.
Let’s discuss the immediate results first. I take a teaspoon of the powder; pour onto wet hands to make a smooth paste and massage it thoroughly. While massaging, I can feel a mild exfoliating action on my skin. It doesn’t irritate my skin or make it feel tight later on. After rinsing, it leaves my skin baby soft, smooth and gives me a glowing radiant skin that shines. It literally polishes my skin. Hard to believe but true! If you’re wondering whether it feels greasy afterwards, the answer is no. However, my sis has an oily skin and it makes her skin oily early than it usually does but she too loves the instant glow she gets (I suggest using it before going to bed if you have an oily skin). I use it in the morning and the glow on my face remains for the whole day however you need to use it every day to maintain it.
Now the long-term benefits. I have been using it for almost a month now and I agree to its bleaching action. The potato starch is helping with dark spots and blemishes; it seems to be lightening them a lot quicker. I don't have major discoloration issues or very dark spots so I can't tell whether it would help with that or not. I won’t say it whitens the complexion instantly; it would only enhance your real complexion and even it out but that would take time so be patient.
The packaging isn’t very attractive but I don’t complain because the product inside outshines it. I like that it comes in a bottle which makes it easy to pour out the powder. Since it is all natural, it sure is pricey but it would last for over a month if used once every day. I personally use it only two times a week.
Bottom line: For me, this product delivers what it says! It’s suitable for dry/normal and combination skin types. For oilies, I am not sure because there's a possibility it may break you out (it hasn’t broken me out though and neither my sis). It cannot replace a moisturizer but it sure locks in moisture and imparts a healthy glow to your skin. Definitely worth a try!
Update: I purchased this product and found out that Rose Link recently increased the honey content to ensure a longer shelf life. It hasn't affected the results but the scent has got a bit stronger for my liking - this could be something off putting. Other than this, I have no issues.
