Glow Works! Read these stories from real people…

I love how the whole Glow skincare routine feels like magic or alchemy. It’s not something you “have” to do (like brushing your teeth) but something you can’t resist doing.

I love the smell. I love the feel. I love Drench – why is it so appealing to spray something delicious on your face? I love EE. I love the moisturizer. I love how you can smell the products on your skin after you put them on.

I love how you only need a tiny amount of the cleanser and it seems to spread all over your face. Actually, all the products are like that – you don’t need vast quantities at any one time because they provide such a plethora of benefits. Considering what goes into them, it’s really an enormous value.

So, is it just my imagination, or are your products calming? I notice when I do the morning routine with face crème, Drench and EE that I feel calm and peaceful afterwards… uplifted. Perhaps that ‘s the Reiki energy? But I think also the scents and the ingredients themselves. They are very restorative.

Show of hands. How many of you think bespoke (personalized) skincare is for movie stars and royalty? Something created for Victoria Beckham or Jennifer Lopez by some celebrity facialist who creates the creams and potions out of butterfly kisses and rainbows meant to give them camera ready ageless skin right when they roll out of bed?

What if I were to tell you that skincare made exactly to your specifications with the finest ingredients imaginable was firmly in your grasp?

Part of the territory of being a beauty and health editor is trying numerous organic and natural skincare products; some great, some good, some not so good and some still you aren’t quite sure whether it is just your skin or it is a product you want to write the company and tell never ever to make again.

Although I have fallen in love with products as a result of this trial-and-error I always wondered what it would be like to take all the aspects that I love in each product and leave all the not so nice aspects and marry them into one amazing product.

Meet Wendy Gardner, creator of the gorgeous artisanal line Glow Skincare (who I envy because she lives in Devonshire in the UK, one of the most beautiful places on earth), alchemist, magician, purveyor of gorgeous gloriously glowing skin. (Say that five times fast, I dare you!) Her potions and lotions are nothing short of miraculous (something along the lines of finding a unicorn in your back yard), and, while she creates ‘off the rack’ cleansers, moisturizers and tonics (made with high quality luscious ingredients like sandalwood, lavender and rose with nourishing oils like jojoba and avocado) , her claim to fame is, was, and always will be her bespoke skincare.

I am one of the lucky women that has been touched by her genius having a cleanser, a day cream, and a night cream made based on my needs and desires.

“I was always chasing whatever skincare issue would arise. A random pimple. Then dry patches. Irritation and redness.

Wendy convinced me to try her holistic routine with the Glow Essential Collection, and I decided to keep a diary to track results.

The first thing I noticed was the incredible scent when I received the package, my entire being took a deep breath and I instantly relaxed.

From there it only got better. From the first use my skin felt stimulated, like it was coming to life.

The deep moisturization was unlike anything I had experienced before.

For two days I had a little bit of peeling as my skin renewed itself, revealing a youthful radiance that made me feel beautiful- without makeup!

Now I feel like I have a skincare routine that supports my skin, as opposed to manipulating it.

The result is consistently gorgeous complexion. I am truly glowing. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”


It was more expensive than my usual face cream, but I wanted a healthy option (no ‘bad’ stuff ) that would lessen the slight ruddiness.

Within a week I got results – my skin feels better hydrated. It’s more supple and retaining moisture. My complexion is more even. I recommend this cream as it helps with hydration which in turn reduces redness.

Definitely worth the money.

Wendy creates unique skincare products with a combination of personal care and a deep knowledge of natural ingredients. The face and hand creams I’ve enjoyed over the years have been tailored to my own (changing) skincare needs as well as taking into account my favoured essential oils.
