Jelly Pong Pong The Glow Getter Luminizer Review

Monday, 3 August 2015

Hello Beauties! I hope you're all well and enjoying your week so far! Firstly, I apologise for the lack of proper posting on here recently. As I'm sure you've heard me mention several times, I recently started a new job so I've been putting all of my efforts and energy into that and settling in to my new routine. That coupled with the fact that I spend most of this weekend at the lovely Kimberley's hen do has meant that I just haven't had the time to sit down and write a proper post so I really am sorry about that! I'm going to make it my mission this weekend to take photos for all of the posts I have planned...of which there are a lot, so hopefully I'll be back to regular blogging soon! Anyway, enough rambling and on to the actual post...

'Strobing' has been the in word this summer in the beauty world with bloggers, models and celebs everywhere choosing to up their highlighter game instead of sticking to their normal highlight and contour routine...and while I'm not a massive fan of the trend (I ended up looking like an extra from Frozen), a good highlighter is definitely something I can get on board with. Last month, I was lucky enough to receive the Glow Getter Luminizer Gel from Jelly Pong Pong in my Birchbox, and as I've been loving it so much, I thought I would pop up a review for you all. 

The Glow Getter Luminizer Gel is a light weight, oil free gel enriched with orange blossom to give your skin a lovely fresh and radiant look. I'd say that it was more of a liquid than a gel as I'd expect a gel to be thicker in consistency whereas this product is more of a thick liquid, if that makes sense? The product comes in a nail polish-esque bottle with a brush applicator, making it really easy to dot on to your cheek bones and blend out, and really control the amount of product you're applying. 

Colour-wise, the Glow Getter Luminizer Gel is a golden champagne colour which is pretty much identical to Sun Beam by Benefit Cosmetics. In fact, pretty much every aspect of this product is identical to Sun Beam by Benefit Cosmetics, right down to the consistency, applicator and blend ability (pretty sure I just made that word up). I find the best way to apply this product is to dot it over my cheek bones and then use my finger to lightly blend it out. This way it brings out my cheek bones without smudging the foundation I've applied prior to using the highlighter. I also use this under my brows occasionally when I'm fake tanned, as I find the golden champagne colour really compliments tanned skin and makes you look like you've been living it up in a tropical climate somewhere instead of trying to avoid unwanted attention on the tube. 

Overall, I've really been enjoying this highlighter as  a nice change to the powder highlighters I normally use, especially now the weather has been a little warmer and I've been able to get away with a glowier look. I'd really recommend this product if you've ever thought about trying out Sun Beam by Benefit, as this is exactly the same and almost half the price, costing only £8.95 from the Jelly Pong Pong site. 

Lots of Love,
