I have had the O Glow Cheek colour since christmas. The product itself is that of a clear gel like formula this then changes a pinky shade when applied to skin. The gel is very soft in texture almost powder like once fully absorbed. Although this isn't a product i use everyday I believe it is great value for money and a must have beauty item. I feel the product would be best used in summer for a pinky glow to the cheeks however is ideal if wanting to achieve a natural bare skin look. How to use - well this is the easy part, simply squirt a pea sized amount on the index finger and rub gently across the areas you would normally blush i.e apples of your cheeks. Due to only needing a small amount of product i can happily say this tube will last for months and months. Not much more to say about this really, apart from it is a fun little product that is suitable for almost every skin type and really fun to use.
I asked for this product at Christmas (6 months ago) because I wanted a change from powder blushes as I suffer from dry skin and never got into cream blushes as they didn't blend too well. So 1 point to O-Glow for being suitable for dry skin.
Application is easy, you squeeze half a pea of the gel onto your finger and blend from the apple of your cheek outwards. This gives you a subtle yet noticeable blush. If that is not quite enough for you, the great thing about this product is it is easy to build upon, add a little more and a little more until you are happy.
The website claims that:
"When applied, your skin's moisture activates the innovative formula, producing a rosy blush that lasts all day."
Firstly, the gel does not just react with the skins moisture but with all moisture so if you squeeze a little out of the tube it will react with the moisture in the air and turn a pinky shade. Not that this affects the final look at all but since this is the claim that makes the product different from all others I thought it ought to be in the review. As for lasting all day, I have found it quite durable. I get a good 8 hours wear out of it and as I said previously adding a top-up is no problem.
Underneath the product I wear a skin primer, liquid foundation and a powder foundation and it blends in well with all of them. I have read reviews which claim it does not blend with powder foundation but I have not found it a problem.
As I early specified, I got this product last Christmas and used it 95% of days since and I am still on my first tube so while £16 (QVC) might seem a lot for a 15ml tube, it is well worth the money currently it is standing at 8p per day of use which is not at all bad and it appears to still have a lot of product left.
To summarise, I will definitely be buying this product again and would definitely recommend it to others.
