If you’re into green beauty at all, chances are you’ve been hearing about Fitglow Beauty. And, if you’ve been following my blog over the last few years, you know that this is one of my favourite brands on the block. My “deserted island choice” as they have everything ranging from high quality skincare to completely natural makeup (that doubles as skincare as its formulated with ingredients that IMPROVE your skin as you wear them rather than clog up your pores and wreak havoc on your system). I have tried a good majority of the Fitglow Beauty Line, and I’m always being asked questions about their products so I figured I would put together a guide encompassing all of the products I’ve tried. I’ll also link to some of my past reviews with swatches on specific products from their line for more information.

* This post includes some affiliate links. This means that any product purchased from my links will generate a small commission (At no extra cost to you). As always, I will only recommend brands that have passed my seal of approval and that I truly love.. these commissions help to cover Bloom + Clementine’s fees so that this website can stay alive and I can continue sharing my green beauty passion with you all. Thank you for supporting my little green space on the internet. *

 

Fitglow Beauty’s products are 100% Natural, Organic, 100% Cruelty Free Ingredients, Not Tested on Animals, Gluten Free, and Completely Plant Based. They really encompass a lot of high ethics within their brand which makes it accessible and useful for everyone. They stay away from a long list of conventional and chemically derived ingredients which ensures that your skin is gaining the benefits of complete plant based healing power in both your makeup and skincare. This is a brand I have used for 4 (maybe even 5) years now. I have watched their business grow and have been witness to a company that never waivers from high quality products or ethical standards. They take A LOT of time to research and create products rather than just throwing them together for the sake of sales and I think this is why so many people are becoming dedicated customers of Fitglow. Having started in Canada by their Canadian Founder, Anna, I cant help but be a little patriotic and proud of the origins of this powerhouse green beauty company. They are really taking the green beauty world by storm. I have quite the collection of Fitglow Beauty myself and so I decided I would put together a guide of the products I have used (the complete makeup collection and about half of the products in the skincare collection). Its not often a brand can excel in BOTH makeup and skincare but Fitglow does it.. time and time again with every product they launch.

Fitglow Everyday Make up Look

It comes as no surprise that Fitglow is taking over my makeup bag. I have quite a few bottles of silver and fuschia pink fitglow products floating around my house and about every colour of every lip product they have created. They solved so many green beauty transitions for me (particularly a natural mascara *finally, I could part with conventional brands for one that really worked*, Lip glosses that rival the luxurious status of MAC, and a concealer that is out of this world). I have yet to find a brand that impresses me more than Fitglow when it comes to every makeup product working wonders. If I had to choose a stranded beach brand.. it would be Fitglow.

I decided I would put together an everyday natural look (my go to) to showcase their products below. Check out the products I used that are listed beneath the photo.

Fitglow Makeup Collection Guide + Review

One thing that Fitglow founder, Anna, has been so passionate from the beginning has been creating high performance makeup that isn’t filled with harmful ingredients. But, the key to her makeup line is the fact that she has been so dedicated to creating makeup that is ALSO skincare. All of her makeup is formulated with ingredients that work to improve your skin as you wear them. This is something incredibly unique to the Fitglow Beauty line and something I can appreciate as I have acne prone, redness prone, sensitive skin with a tad of premature aging from sun exposure. I know all too well what conventional makeup does to the skin and that it degrades your skins quality over time. Using conventional products that contain harsh ingredients can really have a huge impact on the health of your skin, I equate it to how our earth looks in areas with high rates of pollution.. it ain’t pretty! So, I’ll begin this guide and review of products from their makeup collection first and end with skincare.

 

 

Vita Active Foundation (Mid to Full Coverage Liquid Foundation)

photo credit: Fitglow Beauty

 

Fitglow Beauty has created a foundation that hits high on my list of recommendations. It is one of the first foundations that I truly liked after trying many years ago and it has remained in my makeup bag for years now. It is a mid coverage foundation that is buildable with a semi matte finish. There are 9 shades in its colour range and it is a cream like consistency. When set properly, I find this foundation lasts all day and works incredibly well with Conceal + to create the most flawless complexion.

Additional Skincare Benefits: Vita Active Foundation contains Vitamin C, Botanical Hyaluronic Acid, Seaweed Brighteners, and Beta-Carotene which work to improve collagen levels in the skin, repair sun damage and hyper pigmentation, and help clear the skin.

You can read all about its stats and how it holds up to other foundations I’ve tried in green beauty in my ‘Natural + Cruelty Free Foundation Guide’ HERE.

Full Ingredients:

Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe) Leaf Juice*, Lavendula Angustofolia (Lavender Hydrosol)*, Rose Damascena (Rose Hydrosol)*, Ricinus Communis (Castor Seed Oil)*, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil*, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Oil*, Cetearyl Olivate, Daucus Carota (Carrot Oil)*, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C) ,Sorbitan Olivate (Olive Derived), Simmondsia Chinensis ( Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Cassia Angustifolia Seed Polysaccharide (Botanical Hyaluronic Acid),Undaria Pinnatifida Cell Culture Extract (Wakame Bioferment), Caprylic /Capric Triglyceride (Derived from Coconut), Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Sea Buckthorn)*, Cetyl Alcohol, Mica, Titanium Dioxide (CI77891), Zinc Oxide (CI77974), Iron Oxides (CI77492, CI77491), Ultramarines (CI77007), Sorbitol, Argania Spinosa (Argan Oil)*

 

Conceal + (Full Coverage Concealer)

photo credit: Fitglow Beauty

 

This is one of Fitglows more recent launches and it has to be the BEST concealer I have used.. EVER (this goes for both green beauty and conventional options). It is full coverage, semi matte in finish and sits on your skin like a second layer of skin. This is one of the only concealers that does not crease under my eyes and it can be used as a full coverage foundation if you so choose (it just comes in a smaller bottle as most concealers do, so i suggest using it this way only for big events). I use the shade C1 as I prefer to brighten under my eyes and have gone a shade down to do so. If I were to use all over my face I would opt for C2.

Additional Skincare Benefits: Conceal + contains Phyto Elastin, Organic Green Tea, Vitamin K, and Licorice Root which reduce the appearance of hyper pigmentation and blemished, while strengthening skin to reduce fine lines.

Full Ingredients:

Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil *, Cera Alba (Beeswax)* , Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil*, Lauryl Laurate, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Phytoelastin PF (Plant Elastin), Water, Phospholipids & Phytonadione (Vitamin K Liposome ) , Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Caffeine, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract (Green Tea Extract ) *, Glycyrrhiza Glabra Root Extract (Licorice Root) * May Contain: Titanium Dioxide, Yellow Iron Oxide, Red Iron Oxide, Black Iron Oxide, Ultramarine Violet, Chromium Oxide Green, Manganese Violet.  * Certified Organic Ingredients





 

Eye Bright (Under Eye Brightener, Colour Correction, Concealer)

Another complexion booster is the Eye Bright. This is a colour correcting concealer that works to visibly brighten the areas of your face you need it most thanks to its yellow tone. I use it under my eyes when I need a pick me up from sleepless nights. I also use it to correct redness if I’m having a really sensitive day (my redness can peak out from behind foundation some days) in my cheeks if needed by lightly dabbing it into the areas and adding setting powder over top. But here’s the deal, I didn’t understand its power until I figured out that wearing it under my foundation was a waste. I now wear this OVER my foundation to brighten and set with a setting powder over top. This really boosts its ability to brighten and colour correct while giving dimension to the areas of my skin that I want to improve. I don’t think I could go without my Eye Bright in my makeup bag.

Additional Skincare Benefits: Eye bright contains Organic coffee, probiotic peptides, and plant antioxidants which help to improve puffiness and imperfections as you wear it (particularly under the eyes).

Full Ingredients: 

*Simmondsia Chinensis Oil (Jojoba), *Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), *Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil (Almond), Cera Alba, *Theobroma Cacao Seed Butter (Cocoa), *Limnanthes Alba Seed Oil (Meadowfoam), *Oenothera Biennis Oil (Evening Primrose), Tocopherol (Non GMO), *Coffea Arabica Oil (Coffee), Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil (and) Phytosterols (and) Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Hexapeptide 11 (Probiotic Peptide), Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Titanium Dioxide (CI77891) Yellow Iron Oxide (CI77492), Zinc Oxide, Silica. * Certified Organic Ingredient

Lumi Firm (Highlighter)

photo credit: Fitglow Beauty

 

This is another fairly new product launch this past year and it is what I like to call the perfect everyday highlighter balm. It is the most gorgeous texture that wont slide off your skin, it dabs in so well to the cheek bones, brow bone, tip of the nose, cupids bow and inner eye corners to create the most flattering highlight. A little goes a really long way and it doesn’t overdo it as I find many highlighters leave the skin too shiny and shimmery. This highlighter will help your skin look more glowing and dewy without appearing like you’ve just dropped fairy dust all over your face. It looks especially stunning when natural light hits your skin, a lit from within glow. If you’re looking for a perfect everyday highlighter then this is going to be your new best friend.

Additional Skincare Benefits: Lumi Firm contains “natural plant peptides firm skin while plant collagen fights signs of aging by strengthening skin structure”.

Full Ingredients: 

Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil (Jojoba)*, Theobroma Cacao Seed Butter (Cocoa)*, Silica, Water (Aqua) & Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Seed Extract (Sweet Almond Peptides), Hexapeptide 11 (Probiotic Peptide), Mica, Cera Alba (Beeswax)*, Tocopherol Acetate (Non Gmo), Vegetable Collagen, Rosmarinus Offcinalis Leaf Extract (Rosemary)*, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil*, Iron Oxide (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499). *CERTIFIED ORGANIC

Vita Set Powder (Complexion Setting Powder)

photo credit: Fitglow Beauty

 

If you want to set your complexion for a flawless all day wear, then you’re going to need a setting powder. I have found only two setting powders in green beauty that fit the bill and Fitglow is one of them. This powder can be applied all over for a matte finish or if you just want to tone down glow in certain areas (ie. forehead, nose, t-zone, etc.) then a setting powder will be your best friend. You have to use very little of this product, as a little goes a long way and absorbs any excess oil sitting on top of the skin. This also helps if you’re an avid oil cleanser and facial oil gal like myself, and need to reduce the amount of oils coming through makeup and keep them beneath where they can continue to work their skincare magic. This powder also balances PH levels of the skin while giving you an airbrush finish to your look.

Additional Skincare Benefits: “Pure Glacial Marine Clays soothe skin, absorb extra oils and balance ph maintaining foundation finish and color. Niacinamide, the most stable form of the B3 vitamin, defends from free radical skin damage while activating skin collagen production to keep skin smooth and youthful.”

Full Ingredients:

Sericite, Calcium Carbonate, Kaolin Clay, Silica, Zinc Oxide, Glacial Marine Clay, Niacinamide (B3) Iron Oxides (CI77492, CI77491), Ultramarines (CI77007).

 

Good Lash + Mascara (Mascara with Growth Serum)

photo credit: Fitglow Beauty

 

THIS Mascara.. I don’t even know where to start. Up until this came out not even a year ago I was still in the struggle between natural mascaras and bouncing back to my old conventional favourite. I was desperate.. I LOVE mascara and have a very high expectation for the ones that I use so even years and years after beginning my green beauty switch over, I was still struggling with this last piece. Finally, Fitglow came out with their Good Lash + Mascara which doubles as a lash growth serum and yes.. it does work. Its a dry formula which to me means better build-ability to give that glam look that will stay and not feel like liquid sitting on my lashes. It holds a perfect lash all day long and creates the most voluminous, glam, lengthened lashes. I like this one even better than my conventional favourite and cannot get enough of the performance it provides. I also am a big fan of the mega pine cone brush (which I was honestly not sure if I would like before trying) but it really does help grip the lashes and pull the product through them while separating and lengthening at the same time. If you’re struggling to find a natural mascara, I strongly suggest you give this one a try! If it doesn’t turn out to be your jam (which I’d be surprised) then at least you’ve gotten the benefits of longer lashes from the built in growth serum.

Additional Lash Health Benefits: “3-in-1 vegan mascara, amplifies lash volume and length while nourishing lashes with powerful botanical extracts and plant protein to promote lash health and growth. The multitasking mascara/serum/conditioner enhances the look of lashes on a day-to-day basis plus provides potent vitamins and antioxidants to help lashes grow thicker, denser and fuller. Frail and brittle lashes are strengthened and protected by organic emulsion which prevents breakage and leaves lashes looking rich and full.”

Full Ingredients:

Aqua, Iron Oxide (CI 77499), *Euphorbia Cerifera (Candellila) Wax, *Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba Wax), *Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Wax, Vegetable Collagen, *Myrica Pubescens Fruit Wax, Stearic Acid (Cocoa Source), *Equisetum Arvense (Horsetail Plant) Extract, *Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Propanediol / Pentylene Glycol / Phenethyl Alcohol (Non GMO Sugar Source), Hydrolyzed (Lupine) Plant Protein.

Lip Colour Serum (Lipgloss)

photo credit: Fitglow Beauty

 

There is no doubt that if you’ve been following me for a while on here then you’ve heard me rave about these lip gloss serums. This is by far the BEST lip gloss in green beauty. Why? The texture is so creamy, non-sticky, glides on easily. The colour palette chosen (which is growing at a rapid pace thanks to the fact that everyone is obsessed with this product and keeps asking for more shades) is gorgeous.. filled with true nudes, pink nudes, mauves, corals, pops of brights, and deep tones.  Not to mention, they’re formulated to repair the lips as you wear them by halting and reducing fine lines, quenching the lips of dehydration, and naturally plumps the lips. You can read my full review on these lip serums with shade swatches HERE.

Additional Skincare Benefits: “Organic pomegranate plant sterols, Beet Extract, Vegan Collagen and antioxidants improve lip cell structure and health to diminish fine lines and leave lips full and soft.”

Full Ingredients:

Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)*, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil*, Helianthus Annus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil*, Vegetable Collagen, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate), Sterols Beta Vulgaris Rubra (Beet Root) Cera Alba (Beeswax)*, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter*, Curcuma longa (Turmeric) Root Powder, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil & Lecithin & Yeast Extract (Organic Plump)*, Tocopherol Acetate (Vitamin E) Sorbic Acid, Vanilla Extract May Contain: Titanium Dioxide (CI77891), Iron Oxides (CI77499), (CI77492), (CI77491). *CERTIFIED ORGANIC INGREDIENTS

 

Lip Colour Cream (Lipstick)

Fitglows 3-in-1 Lip Treatment Creams are another dreamy product for the lips and are their highly coveted lipstick. They provide the perfect amount of pigment that can be built upon, apply like a dream due to their creamy consistency, and help repair the health of your lips beneath as you wear them. I have also written a full review of this product along with product swatches which you can read about HERE.

Additional Skincare Benefits: “Feeding lips at a cellular level, this hydrating cream strengthens and replenishes collagen to increase fullness and firmness while also conditioning and healing the lips.”

Full Ingredients:

 Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)*, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil*, Helianthus Annus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil*, Vegetable Collagen, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate), Sterols Beta Vulgaris Rubra (Beet Root) Cera Alba (Beeswax)*, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter*, Curcuma longa (Turmeric) Root Powder, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil & Lecithin & Yeast Extract (Organic Plump)*, Tocopherol Acetate (Vitamin E) Sorbic Acid, Vanilla Extract May Contain: Titanium Dioxide (CI77891), Iron Oxides (CI77499), (CI77492), (CI77491). *CERTIFIED ORGANIC INGREDIENTS

Fitglow Skincare Collection Guide + Review

Next up we have Skincare. While I have tried All products listed in the makeup section, I have only tried about half of the skincare line from Fitglow Beauty so I will review and cover those only. I have sensitive, redness prone, acne prone skin with subtle fine lines from previous over-exposure to the sun. I have really found a deep love for Fitglows dedication to plant based, cruelty free, high performance ingredients that work synergystically to repair the skin.

 

Calm Cleansing Milk (Cream Cleanser for Redness Prone Sensitive Skin)

photo credit: Fitglow Beauty

The Calm Cleansing Milk is a good option for those who prefer a traditional cleanser and have sensitive or redness prone skin. It works well at removing makeup as well and does not irritate the skin. I only used a sample size of this so am not able to speak on any long term benefits, but I think this cleanser is a great fit for those who prefer an effective gentle cleanse that doesn’t dtrip the skin of its natural oils.

Additional Skincare Benefits: “ORGANIC CUCUMBER and ALOE JUICE sooth skin and replenish moisture while leaving skin clean and refreshed.”

Full Ingredients:

Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) oil, Decyl polyglucoside, (sugar based surfactant), Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, (Olivem®1000), Vegetable Glycerin, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber),Rosa Damascene (Rose) **Lavandula angustifolia (Lavender) Leuconostoc/Aloe barbadensis Leaf/ Sorbus Aucuparia Fruit Ferment Filtrate.

 

Vita Active Cleanser (Brightening Cleanser for All Skin Types)

photo credit: Fitglow Beauty

Fitglow’s Vita Active Cleanser is a traditional gel cleanser that removes makeup and debris from skin effectively and efficiently. It does foam up while cleansing and similarly to its counterpart, the gentle milk cleanser, does not strip your skin of natural oils or moisture. This cleanser is great for all skin types and the addition of Vitamin C makes it a great option for those who wish to age gracefully. I personally loved how clean my face felt after using this cleanser.

Additional Skincare Benefits: ” Loaded with certified organic botanical extracts including Organic Calendula, Burdock Root, Rosemary and Nettle Leaf to clean, hydrate and protect skin. Vitamin C defends from free radical damage and brightens skin.”

Full Ingredients: 

Purified Water, Decyl Glucoside, Coco Glucoside, Coco Betaine, Vegetable Glycerin,* Vitamin C (Stabilized L-Ascorbic Acid), Cannabis Sativa (Hemp) Seed Oil, Panthenol (Vitamin B5), [Organic Blend of Calendula Officialis (Marigold Calendula), Arctium Lappa (Burdock Root), Salvia Sclarea (Clary Sage), *Urtica Diotica (Nettle Leaf), Rosemary Officialis (Rosemary), *Taraxacum Officinals (Dandelion)], Guar Gum, Citric Acid, Polyaminopropyl Biguinide, Lavandula Angustifolia(Lavender)**, Rosa Damascene(Wildcrafted Rose) **

 

Sea Toning Mist (Hydrosol Toner/Alternative Use: Makeup Setting Spray)

photo credit: Fitglow Beauty

This toner is one of my favourites and it is incredibly multi-functional. Not only does it work to protect the natural moisture barrier of the skin, but it soothes the skin (great for those who experience redness). I use this toner after cleansing in a daily routine, pop it in my purse to refresh my face during a busy day, and use it to set makeup. It also contains Hyaluronic Acid, which is an amazing agent for hydrating and protecting your skins natural hydration.. it can hold up to 1000x its weight in water within the cells.

Additional Skincare Benefits: “ORGANIC ALOE VERA and BOTANICAL HYALURONIC ACID boost skin intercellular moisture and plump dehydrated cells while Seaweed Extracts calm irritation. The Wildcrafted Rose and Willowbank reduced inflammation while keeping pores clear and increasing the absorption of nutrient rich serums and moisturizers. Perfect to cool skin post workout or yoga.”

Full Ingredients:

Vita Active Serum (Dullness, Brightening, Anti-Aging)

photo credit: Fitglow Beauty

This serum has been on my shelf for two refills so far. The reason I love it most? It helps dramatically reduce hyper-pigmentation and acne scarring that I’ve had for years since dealing with major breakouts. It has incredibly high concentrations of skin tone enhancing vitamins and minerals and they work SYNERGYSTICALLY (which means the ingredients boost each others activity for a more powerful action on the skin). This is a great option for those who want a more even complexion.

Additional Skincare Benenfits: “The synergistically complete serum increases collagen production, diminishes spots, freckles, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage, plus improves elasticity while offering long acting protection from further damage. Daily use leaves skin clear, smooth, and radiant.”

Full Ingredients: 

Herbal Infusion*, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Aloe Vera)*, Cassia Angustifolia Seed Polysaccharide (Botanical Hyaluronic Acid), Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C), Alpha Arbutin (Bearberry), Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), Ubiquinone (CoQ10), Lactobacillus/Portulaca (Purslane Bioferment) Oleracea Ferment ExtractUndaria Pinnatifida Cell Culture Extract (Wakame Bioferment), Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Haematococcus Pluvialis Extract (Astaxanthin), Citrus Clementia hort. ext. Tan (Clementine Essential Oil), (2s)-2-Amino-5-guanidinopentanoic Acid, Wildcrafted Prunus Virginiana (Wild Cherry), Tanacetum Annuum Linnaeus (Blue Tansy), Curcuma Longa (Turmeric)*, Wildcrafted Hydrangea Arborescens (Hydrangea), Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice)*, Sucrose Stearate,Preservative, Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate, Lecithin, Tocopherol, Ethylhexyl Glycerin

 

 

Vita Youth Oil (Plant Based Retinol Serum for cellular Turnover)

photo credit: Fitglow Beauty

If you’ve ever heard about the amazing actions of retinols for the skin and how its production of rapid cell turnover has helped diminish signs of aging and improved skin conditions like acne, then you have likely also read that there is a long list of side effects that comes with conventional retinols. This is why it can be a great option to find a PLANT BASED RETINOL that provides the same benefits without risking any of the side effects that retinols prescribed by your dermatologist could potentially head. This is one of my FAVOURITE plant based retinol options for face serums. It smells amazing, is lightweight, sinks quickly into the skin, and sits well under other skincare products like face oils, moisturizers and balms. It is still important to be cautious of the fact that retinols are NOT recommended as a safe option during pregnancy.. I pause my use of this retinol serum when pregnant and resume using it afterwards.

Additional Skincare Benefits: 

“Vita Youth Oil brings your skin back to youthful harmony using rare and luxurious active oils combined with plant stem cells and retinol. The harmonious combination of actives deeply penetrates skin to awaken healthy skin cell development, smooth lines, and revitalize skin texture. Skin is left hydrated, plump, and glowing.

  • Improves skin elasticity and radiance
  • Reduces the look of lines and skin damage
  • Provides potent environmental protection from free radical damage
  • Improves skin health and regeneration of healthy cells”

Full Ingredients:

Orchis Mascula Extract (Orchid Oil)*, Borago Officinalis Seed Oil (Star Flower Oil)* , Rosa Canina Fruit Extract Rose Hip Seed Oil)* Squalane (Squalane From Olives)* , Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) *Seed Oil & Malus Domestica Fruit Stem Cell Extract & Argania Spinosa Sprout Stem Cell Extract (Apple & Argan Stem Cell Extract )* Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride & Phospholipids & Retinol (Retinol liposome ), Sambucus Nigra Fruit Extract (Elderberry)*, Cucumis Sativus Fruit Extract Cucumber) ** Prunus Domestica Fruit Extract (Plum)**, Rosa Damascena Extract (Rose) ** *certified organic ingredients ** Organic Supercritical CO2 Extracts

 

Redness Rescue Cream (Green Tinted Cream for Calming and Correcting Redness and Sensitivity)

 

photo credit: Fitglow Beauty

Fitglows redness rescue cream is another staple in my makeup and skincare regime as I have suffered with redness prone, sensitive skin for as long as I can remember. I use this green tinted cream  on days when my skin isn’t behaving beneath my makeup (its tint works so immediately reduce redness I experience in my cheeks). It also contains calming ingredients that work to reduce the redness at the source as you wear it. This isn’t something I personally wear everyday but when I have days where my skin is blushing or even after too much sun exposure to help calm and reduce the look of redness.

It also sits well on its own for those who want something to help balance the tone of their skin instead of wearing make up to balance out redness.  A perfect option for Men who experience redness and don’t want to resort to using concealers or foundations.

Additional Skincare Benefits: 

“Our proprietary c3 Organic Calming Plant blend repairs stressed skin, improves skin strength and calms irritation. Wakame Seaweed Extract increases skin oxygen consumption promoting healing and collagen production.Green mineral tint immediately reduces the look of redness while local ORGANIC GRAPE SEED OIL hydrates without greasiness. Natural Skin Doctor Approved.

  • Reduces skin redness
  • Calms irritated sensitive skin
  • Improves intercellular oxygen and moisture
  • Strengthens skin cell health and improves renewal
  • Promotes scar and acne healing”

Full Ingredients: 

Aqua, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Oil*, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil**, c3 Blend [Symphytum Officinale (Comfrey)*, Calendula Officinalis (Calendula), Matricaria Chamomilla (Camomile)], Undaria Pinnatifida Cell Culture Extract (Wakame Bioferment), Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide, Silica, Iron Oxides, Ultramarines, Sorbitol, Leuconostoc / Aloe Barbadensis Leaf / Sorbus Aucuparia Fruit Ferment Filtrate.
