About a month ago, I bought the Glow Boost Foam Wash by Hyaloo at Watsons Pharmacy for Php285 (100ml bottle). I’ve been wanting to try some Korean facial care products for some time now and I got intrigued by it because it said it was “Made in Korea”. And so far I have a good review on it.
Before I got this, I’ve noticed how my pores have become bigger through the years and I’ve wanted to take care of it. My pores are receptacles for oil and dirt and has just become a point of insecurity for me. So reading the box packaging of Glow Boost, it promised to help me with my problem. So I bought and tried it out.
I used this foam wash in the mornings when I bathe before going to work and at night before going to bed as suggested on its usage instructions. Sometimes I’d use it in the afternoons at lunch if I feel really oily because of the tropical heat. The “clean” feeling I get after using it lasts for a few hours, which is good enough for me.
The foam feels gentle on the skin. It does say that it’s for all skin types so I don’t feel any discomfort using it several times. No fruity smell, which I don’t think is necessary anyways. Just a neutral facial cleanser. It’s alcohol free so there’s no burning feeling on sensitive skin occasions.
Getting rid of my whiteheads with this foam wash
After a month of using it, I did noticed a more “plump” skin. My face’s oil production is still the same but using this regularly did leave me an impression of clearer skin and smaller pores. My most satisfying moment with it was that it helped me easily remove my whiteheads. I was just looking at the small changes on my face in the mirror after washing my face with it when I happened to squeezed my nose lightly. A whitehead oozed out of a pore to my surprise. I then tried squeezing my nose again on different angles and more whiteheads easily popped out. Perhaps it’s true to its promise of cleaning even the deeper layers of the skin.
What’s in it?
Hyaloo’s Glow Boost Foam Wash comes with its trademarked “Hydra-Vitamin Technology”, which I really don’t know what it is. But it says it features unique synergy of potent humectants and beauty vitamins.
It has four types of Hyaluronic Acid that can lock-in water within the skin to keep it plump and radiant. Through this, it’s able to provide hydration to the surface and deeper parts of the skin.
The Vitamin E in it helps moisturize and protects skin from damages while Vitamin C is an antioxidant that also assists in collagen production to even out skin tone and make it brighter.
For those who have huge pores, the Niacinamide in it can minimize its appearance and make hyperpigmentation fade.
It says it also have seven plant extracts infused in it: Centella Asiatica, Green Tea Leaf, Japanese Knotweed Root, Baikal Skullcap Root, Licorice Root, Chamomile Flower, and Rosemary Flower extracts. These extracts provide more antioxidant, anti-aging properties and other benefits.
