I live for skincare and finding new brands that cater to women of color and all of our skincare concerns. Glori: Fit For a Queen is a skincare and wellness company that improves the quality of life for women of color through daily self-care practices. Founded by Janae Peats, her goal was to heal her mind, body, and soul through self-care practices and creating a skincare line to target specific concerns.
Glori: Fit For Queen products are all vegan, organic, and are made to clarify, brighten, and even out the skin tone. Recently, I decided to add the Brightening elixir to my nighttime skincare routine. I love using oils at night because it is an excellent way for me to get extra added hydration without having to use multiple products.
The Brightening Elixir contains
Organic Grapeseed Oil
High in omega 6, omega-three fatty acids and vitamin e to help improve skin health, function and appearance
Rosehip Seed Oil
Contains vitamins A, C and E. Vitamin A helps with cell turnover, hyperpigmentation and helps to boost collagen
Papaya Seed Oil
Vitamins A, B, C, E, which gives antioxidant protection from free radicals. Papain extracted from papaya to help reduce inflammation and puffiness. Papain also gently exfoliates to reduce hyperpigmentation.
Helps to heal wounds and reduce inflammation (think eczema or rosacea).
All of the oils in the elixir are non-comedogenic and are high in linoleic acid, which is an omega fatty acid which helps to make the skin barrier stronger.
I love using this oil as it makes my skin supple and has instant softening effects on the skin. When using this oil nightly, I notice the next day that my skin has better clarity and texture. A little of the oil goes a long way, and not much is needed. If you are a dryer skin type, then the Brightening Elixir can be used underneath or as your moisturizer during the day.
I recommend the Glori: Fit for a Queen Brightening Elixir. It has helped me in the past few weeks with hydration and refining skin texture.
