Fitglow Beauty Creams

review: beauty heroes fitglow beauty cloud comfort cream + redness rescue cream

February’s Beauty Heroes box features a brand that I’ve be jonesin’ to try for a while: Fitglow Beauty. I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews about Fitglow and was impossibly excited to learn that I would be trying two skincare products: the Cloud Comfort Cream and the Redness Rescue Cream. As with every brand that Beauty Heroes features, you can rest assured that the ingredients and ethos of this company are clean, clean, clean.  The total value of the box is $153.00 for the price of $39.00. Beauty Heroes hits it out of the park, again!

Cloud Comfort Cream

Performance: I’m very impressed with this nourishing and hydrating cream. According to the Fitglow website, “Cloud Comfort Cream nourishes and protects stressed, irritated, and red skin with ultra calming bioavailable nutrients. Organic cloudberry and chia extracts rebuild skin strength and moisture barrier with complete essential lipids and high level of vitamins. Calm liposome deeply penetrates the skin to stimulate cell regeneration, soothe irritation, and improve skin elasticity. Perfect for environmentally aggravated skin, rosacea, or anyone with skin that needs extra TLC.” My winter skin prefers creams to oils, so this hits the spot. The rich — but not thick — consistency provides an ample amount of moisture and penetrates quickly into my skin. This cream’s ingredients, which include shea butter, haven’t bothered my acne-prone skin either — double yay!

Packaging: Lovely pink and white packaging with an iridescent label. Do I love that it’s plastic? No. Do I love its hygienic airless pump? I sure do!

Ingredients: This product ranks a zero on Think Dirty. ZERO! Amazing.

Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Organic Aloe), Rubus Chamaemorus Seed Oil (Cloudberry Seed Oil) *, Sea Water Extract, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil*, Butyrospermum Parkii Butter (Shea Butter) *, Salvia Hispanica Seed Extract (Chia) *, Cassia Angustifolia Seed Extract (Vegan Hyaluronic Acid), Glycerin (Kosher, Vegetable), Symphytum Officinale (Comfrey)*, Allantoin Liposome , Arnica Montana Flower Extract *, Equisetum Arvense Extract (Horsetail) *, Centella Asiatica Extract (Gotu Kola) *, Sorbitol, Leuconostoc / Aloe Barbadensis Leaf / Sorbus Aucuparia Fruit Ferment Filtrate , Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitmain E), **Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract** Prunus Domestica Fruit Extract (Plum)**.

* Certified Organic Ingredients
** Organic Supercritical Co2 Extracts 

Scent Profile: I’ll be honest — I’m not a big fan of this scent. I’m assuming its peculiar aroma comes from the inclusion of cloudberry fruit. I know some people really love the smell, but to me, it smells a bit like baby care products. It does, however, dissipate fairly quickly, and I’m so impressed with the performance of this cream that I’m willing to look past its scent.

Price: $84.00 USD

Disposal: Both the outer packaging and bottle are recyclable. Woo hoo!

Redness Rescue Cream

Performance: I don’t struggle with redness issues (I’m in the hyperpigmentation, acne-prone camp), so I can’t comment on how effective it is in reducing redness. With soothing ingredients that include comfrey, calendula, and chamomile, I do find that it helps with inflammation. I can, with a caveat, attest to this being a good primer, too. Its green tint is intended to reduce redness — hello, color theory — and one pump mixed with my sunscreen seems to work well. Unfortunately, more than one pump leaves a green cast on my deep complexion.

Scent Profile: The notes I smell include calendula and chamomile. I also get a hint of seaweed, likely from the wakame. Overall, I like this smell and prefer it to that of the Cloud Comfort Cream.

Packaging: Lovely green and white packaging with an iridescent label. Similar to the Cloud Comfort Cream, the Redness Rescue Cream comes in a plastic airless pump. Could I be as bold as to suggest glass packaging? ❤

Ingredients: This also ranks a zero on Think Dirty.

Aqua, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Oil*, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil**, C3 Blend [Symphytum Officinale (Comfrey)*, Calendula Officinalis (Calendula), Matricaria Chamomilla (Chamomile)], 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

Price: $69.00 USD

Disposal: As mentioned above, both the outer cardboard packaging and plastic bottle are recyclable.

Would I repurchase these products? Probably not — The Cloud Comfort Cream performed well, but I didn’t love the scent, and the Redness Rescue cream didn’t address any of my skin issues. If you battle red/irritated skin and/or have dehydrated skin, these products might be perfect for you! With that said, I’m so impressed by Fitglow’s pure and unique formulations, that I’d be curious to try their Clear line for oily/acne-prone skin. How about you? Have you tried Fitglow Beauty?
