Glorious Skin with Gloire (Updated)

#faceitwednesdays #aboutface

To be completely honest, I have never heard of the brand Gloire (pronounced as Glooh-war) before until they contacted me and wanted to send me their products to try.

As soon as I received their products, I stopped all other skin care that I had and used only these 3 products for 2 weeks.

Gloire Skin Evolve Premium Skin Care Set, PhP 4,500 PhP 2,500

I believe in a good skin care regimen. I think that having great skin is every woman's secret weapon. Gloire combines nature and technology and promises to preserve the glory of every woman's face.

GLOIRE is a french word which literally translates to "glory". Their mission is to preserve the balance and youth of the face and preserve its glory... Hence, the name.


The GLOIRE product line aims to preserve the youth, firmness and the glow of your face that looks very much alive and give you a healthy-looking radiance.


The Gloire product line consists of 4 elements: Facial Oil Wash, Toning Mist, Revitalizing Serum, and Miracle Patch.



Let me give my thoughts on each product. Let's start with the Toning Mist.

It is said that this toner helps reduce fine lines as it improves dull and dry skin. I am surprised that my skin didn't dry up considering that it is an alcohol based toner.


I love the packaging. The spray is not that hard to squeeze. It also spritzes the right amount of product each time.


Gloire Toning Mist contains Aloe Vera. Aloe Vera juices can effectively soothe skin and serve as an anti-inflammatory agent.


MY THOUGHTS ON THE TONING MIST:

PROS
  • Dries up pimples and reduces the swelling.
  • Thoroughly cleans the face off makeup and other oil residue.
  • Doesn't over dry the face.
  • Makes pores less visible.
  • The fragrance is not strong.
  • Affordable.
  • Lightened my dark freckles and other dark spots.
  • No tight feeling after using!


NEUTRAL
  • It's not readily available in the market. Available only with one distributor.


CONS
  • I am not really a fond of alcohol based toners.
  • It stings the eyes when you spray it directly on your face. Spray on a cotton pad and apply on your face instead.


Will I re-purchase? Maybe,
Will I recommend it? Yes.


MY OVERALL RATING: ★★☆☆

Moving on to the facial oil wash, I love this product because I myself am a huge fan of cleansing oils. I think they're very convenient to use for makeup wearers like me because it effectively removes makeup while moisturizing your skin as well.

Soaps strip away the oils from your face completely, hence the tight feeling. Plus, in spite of that, you skin will still not completely makeup free.


I do love the gold and yellow packaging. It's very high class. One of its main ingredients is Waterlily. Waterlily in the world of cosmetics is known for its astringent and antiseptic properties. It also has an amazing moisturizing benefit which is necessary to keep your skin well hydrated.



MY THOUGHTS ON THE FACIAL OIL WASH:

PROS
  • Thoroughly erases makeup.
  • Moisturizes the face. No tight feeling after cleansing.
  • Perfect consistency to control easily.
  • Leaves the skin very smooth and supple.
  • Can remove waterproof makeup real well (except that it stings the eyes)
  • My skin's surface improved. It's very smooth and velvety to the touch.


NEUTRAL
  • It's not readily available in the market. Available only with one distributor. Will be available soon in Watson's!
  • I am not fond of the smell. It smells like raw seeds for some reason.


CONS
  • Stings the eyes when product gets in your eyes.


Will I re-purchase? Yes.
Will I recommend it? Yes.


MY OVERALL RATING: ★★☆☆


The Gloire Serum promotes healthy young skin and improves the elasticity and protects it from free radicles. In just one week, I noticed that fine lines that were starting to form around my mouth were less visible.


This serum's main ingredient is algae extracts that were proven in France that it really does revitalize and moisturize the skin. The serum that quenches the thirst of the skin when it is looking very dry.


This product is responsible for reducing the appearance of my acne scars as well. I loved that my skin looks smoother.


You just need a 1-2 pumps to cover the entire face. I pump a little extra for my neck. *wink*



I love how velvet-y it feels on the skin.


MY THOUGHTS ON THE REVITALIZING SERUM:

PROS
  • Reduced fine lines in just a week.
  • Made my skin look really health.
  • Gave my skin a certain glow.
  • Really moisturized my skin.
  • Improves the surface of the skin, both on the outside and on the inside.
  • There are days that I don't feel my face tight and dry anymore!
  • Relieves and moisturizes dried up pimples.


NEUTRAL
  • It's not readily available in the market. Available only with one distributor. Will be available soon in Watson's!
  • I don't like the strong smell. It's not perfume per say nor does it smell raw.
  • It's not that thick enough for me, so after 2 weeks I would still apply night moisturizer after the serum.


CONS
  • N/A


Will I re-purchase? Yes.
Will I recommend it? Yes.


MY OVERALL RATING: ★★

This Miracle Eye Patch is the product that intrigued me the most.


The Miracle Eye Patch is said to combine immediate and visible effect with a long-term and lasting skin tightening effect that can be maintained. This patch is designed to aid in transporting active ingredients of any product that accelerates results and gives long lasting benefits.

Perfect when paired with Gloire's Revitalizing Serum.


Each Miracle Eye Patch contains arbutin and timecode agent. Timecode is a high-performing wrinkle corrector that fights the genes at the root of skin ageing.


Effectively improves the appearance of crow's feet in only 20 minutes, and when used continuously for a month and a half, it permanently corrects the wrinkles.



You apply the Miracle Patch under the eyes and you let it sit for 20-30 minutes. These patches are reusable so don't throw them away after 1 use.




MY THOUGHTS ON THE MIRACLE EYE PATCH:

PROS
  • Reusable! You can use the patch 4 times.
  • It sticks really well on the skin.
  • Easy to remove.


NEUTRAL
  • I don't have crow's feet yet so I didn't benefit from this eye patch. But I did use it 4 times.
  • It's not readily available in the market. Available only with one distributor. Will be available soon in Watson's!

CONS
  • N/A


Will I re-purchase? No.
Will I recommend it? Yes.


MY OVERALL RATING: ★★
*I gave this a 2 star because I didn't really benefit from this product. I didn't see results because I don't have crow's feet. But I would still recommend to mature women.


This is me 2 weeks ago before the GlamGlow sesh and the Gloire Skin Care regimen. It was just about that time of the month (hence, the breakout).

2 Weeks Ago.

I used Gloire Skin Care religiously for 2 weeks in the morning before I put on my makeup, and at night before going to bed.

2 Weeks Later.

You can see how radiant my skin is and with only 2 weeks of use. You will also notice that my red acne scars are just about gone. My skin appears soft and my pores are invisible.

My over all rating for this skin care line is:

MY OVERALL RATING: ★★

I feel that women with mature skin would benefit more from this skin care line than women who are in the 30-39 age group. Women who are in their 40s will be able to see drastic changes in their skin when they use this product line. But using Gloire in my age group which is 30-35 years old, you will prevent premature signs of ageing in the skin by correcting early signs of aging like fine lines on the forehead, the mouth area, the the eyes.
