I’m a Chump and Purchased Glamglow Good In Bed

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

Glamglow Good in Bed Passionfruit Softening Night Cream ($54) launched yesterday and of course, like the chump I am, I purchased it. I blame marketing! All the promises of softer, smoother skin had me.

I actually never learn obviously as last year I purchased Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream as soon as it launched and while a really nice moisturizing I never felt it did anything dramatically different or amazing to my skin. Shrug.

I’m likening this formula to Drunk Elephant’s as it not only performs the function of a night cream but also has gently skin exfoliating benefits as well that addresses dry, uneven skin texture in the form of AHA, BHA, and PHA acids. It also has hyaluronic acid to plump skin.

I think the ingredients aren’t super impressive from what I’ve seen as many of the acids and hyaluronic acid is a little lower on the list. it does contain a host of moisturizing seed and avocado oils. But there are a few ingredients some of us choose to avoid such as fragrance and limonene.

I just had that damn $25 off $75 Reward burning a hole in my pocket and this seemed like a good place to go with. Will I regret? Probably.

Let’s see how it goes!

I’ll let you know ๐Ÿ™‚

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Hmm, hope it works! Iโ€™ve been looking for something to replace my dcโ€™ed Ole Henriksen Pure Perfection cream. It ha/ the perfect amount of glycolic and lactic acid so I always wake up glowing.

      I never tried Pure Perfect but now you have me all jealous about glowing skin ;-D I didn’t experience that with Drunk Elephant sadly ๐Ÿ™ I hope I do with Glamglow!

        Will await your review! I do love the Sunday Riley Good Genes, and I have been using that a few times a weekโ€”but more than that I end up dehydrated and itโ€™s not particularly moisturizing!

    Yeah, no. Limonene, linalool, and my personal (hopefully temporary) issues with aloe. What stuck out to me was the LYE above the half-way mark. I get that products need to be acid/base balanced, and that sodium hydroxide is used for that purpose. But the ingredients as a whole don’t look so acid to me, that it needs lye as #11. Higher than most of the actives. If it were at the bottom of the list, no problemo. But I’ll bet the sci nerds (go, people!) that test this stuff with pH strips will find this is too alkali a product for our acid mantle. I’m no chemist, but there is something wrong here.

    I rolled my eyes so hard when I saw the name of this in the promo email lol. However, I will wait to hear your results with it. Most of their stuff is just too harsh for my skin, but the ingredients sound pretty decent in this.

    I used this and the first time I used it in the morning there was like a film still left on my face that kind of flakes off when I rubbed it. Did you have any similar experience?

    • Isabella Muse

      I used it once so far and it is HEAVY! No film I noticed but it does take time to absorb when I apply it. Gonna keep testing see how it goes ;-D
