Fitglow Beauty Review: All My Faves!

I asked on my Instastory (loving that poll feature) if you would be interested in me doing a fitglow beauty review and the overwhelming response was YES! So of course I want to deliver. And as always, my opinion and this review is my own and this is 100% real, authentic and not sponsored in any way. I truly just love blogging about green beauty and sharing my faves with you. Hope you enjoy this fitglow beauty review with all my faves!

So I have been hearing about fitglow beauty products for about 2-3 years now and it has only grown and grown in popularity. I had been wanting to try numerous products for so long so when I found out that they were doing a little pop-up inside the Pure and Simple location in Toronto, I knew I had to go in. I wanted to chat with someone from the company to see what they would suggest for my skin. Plus, I was hoping to score some samples so I could try before I buy.I am so happy I went in that day and was able to try these products because I really found some gems! Plus now I get to share my fitglow beauty review for both skincare and makeup, yay!

Fitglow Beauty Skincare Review:

Vita Active Serum:

Having worked at The Detox Market in the past for about 3 years, I learned a lot about beauty products, ingredients and what to look for to get results. So when I saw the ingredients for this serum, it was love at first sight. And here's why:

  • The third ingredient is Hyaluronic Acid. This is one of the best things you can look for when it comes to fighting wrinkles and keeping your skin looking glowy, dewy and young.
  • The next ingredient after that is vitamin C. This is one of the best vitamins for your skin as it helps to boost collagen production and brighten the skin. It actually contains 20% vitamin C, which is HUGE!
  • The other big ingredient in here is CoQ10. This ingredient is an enzyme that is produced naturally in the body that helps keep your skin looking healthy. Unfortunately aging and stress can reduce CoQ10 in the body. Because of this reduction, this can impede our ability to produce collagen and elastin which helps our skin looking plump and youthful. It also acts as a strong antioxidant, helping to neutralize those free radicals that make our skin age. Using CoQ10 topically can help our skin look younger, plumper and fresher.
  • Astaxanthin is another ingredient that belongs to a class of naturally-occurring pigments called carotenoids. This antioxidant also helps with free radicals and can be 65 times more powerful than vitamin C.

These were the ingredients that stood out the most to me and what first made me want to try this product. After using the sample, I fell in love with it and purchased the full size product.

How I Use It:

  • I am using this only at night followed by an oil afterwards to help with my own hydration levels, especially important in the winter.

In the morning, I am using my tried and true, Kypris Antioxidant Dew. I have already noticed a difference on my skins appearance as it looks more hydrated, even, smooth and clear. I love this serum for its effect on wrinkles and aging, because this woman (me) is not getting any younger. Although side note- I have been using an eye cream since high school, I am weird like that.

Bottom Line: I LOVE this product and highly recommend it if you are looking for something for older skin (I am 37) as this helps with fine lines, texture and damaged or dull skin.

Calm Cleansing Milk:

There are three cleansers to choose from. I went with this one as I need all the moisture and hydration I can get. The problem with a lot of cream cleansers is that they don't take off makeup all that well. So I was a little hesitant to give this one a try, but so happy that I did. It really takes off my makeup well and most important my skin feels clean, refreshed and hydrated after. I only use this at night, because in the morning, I simply use water to wash up. I

  • Made with ingredients like organic aloe and cucumber, it helps to soothe the skin while still leaving it hydrated and refreshed.
  • You use this product on dry skin, then wet your hands to massage the cleanser in your skin and remove.

Bottom Line: I really liked this cleanser, so I purchased the full size product. My skin looks and feels amazing after using this, definitely recommend it to those with drier skin.

Eye C:

I wanted to try this eye cream because similar to the serum, it contained a lot of great ingredients.

  • Vitamin C for helping to brighten the under eye area and thioctic (ALA) an antioxidant that helps with the effectiveness of other antioxidants like vitamin C.
  • Peptides help to improve the skin's firmness and helps boost collagen production. It also works great at reducing dark circles and puffiness, which are two things that are important to me.
  • Combine that with its ability to improve the look of lines around the eye. A little bit goes a long way as with most eye creams, so this should last quite a while. I am still using the sample version I got.

Bottom Line: This eye cream helps brighten up the under eye area quite noticeably, it may be a bit too soon to tell if it is working on my fine lines, but so far, it seems promising.

Cloud Comfort Cream:

This cream is great as a nighttime and daytime cream.

  • I love that it has Hyaluronic Acid in it.
  • Other ingredients like organic cloudberry and chia extracts help to rebuild skin strength and build your moisture barrier.
  • Calm liposome deeply penetrates the skin to stimulate cell regeneration, soothe irritation and improve skin elasticity.
  • This cream is especially great for those that are dealing with environmentally challenged skin and rosacea. It is not heavy at all and feels very lightweight on the skin.

I definitely recommend this cream for a regular day cream although I have used it at night too, especially in the winter when I can use the extra hydration.

Fitglow Beauty mMakeup Review:

Lip Gloss:

I have never been a lipstick girl, I rarely put it on and when I do, I end up lightening it if I can somehow. But lip gloss, I do love!

And I love these ones because they provide a good amount of colour, they plump up your lips a little and they are all natural and not sticky at all.

I bought the shade "Ever" which is a creamy deep plum. I usually go for nudes and light pinks so I was a little hesitant to go for something a bit darker. But it was recommended to me, so I gave it a try and really liked it. I will definitely be buying a second gloss at some point and will probably go for a more nude colour. Update, I own several now and they are still my go-to lip gloss because they're amazing!

Bottom Line: 10000% recommend these lip glosses, I bought one after trying it in store and loved it. It tastes great on and is not sticky at all. I have since bought a second one, and seriously cannot get enough of these! Out of all the makeup products and this whole Fitglow beauty review, this lip gloss is probably my favourite and worth every penny.

Eye Shadow:

This was the second gift with purchase that I received and I was excited because truth be told, my eye shadows needed to go.

  • I got the colour "Slate" which is described as a warm vanilla and deep mushroom.
  • I like how smooth the eye shadows went on and how nicely they blended together.
  • They can also be used wet or dry, which I love, because I wear the darker one as my eyeliner.
  • It stays put all day, but it will crease a little. Truthfully, I haven't tried any that don't crease on me, so I don't mind the little bit of a crease.

Bottom Line: I really like how smooth these eye shadows go on and the colour combinations are nice, so I would purchase this again in the future.

Vita Active Foundation:

I also have been using a sample of this foundation and I really like it.

  • The Fitglow foundation covers fairly well, but it also helps to keep your skin looking amazing with many of the same ingredients I highlighted in the serum.
  • It has made my skin look really clear and radiant and even received compliments on my skin when I was wearing it.
  • It wears really well throughout the day and just keeps you looking fresh. I think this type of foundation is geared more towards those with oily skin rather than dry skin. So if you do have more dry skin, make sure your skin is prepped first with a serum/oil/moisturizer.

Bottom Line: this is a great foundation that is ideal for a light to medium coverage and especially amazing that it is nourishing your skin all day.

Vegan Good Lash:

This3-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.

  • I love this mascara for giving me volume and length.
  • It can smudge a little bit if you are using an oil on your skin, so my advice is to be sure that your lashes are dry and don't have any oil on or around the lid.
  • Much like their skincare products, it also provides potent vitamins and antioxidants to help lashes grow thicker, denser and fuller.
  • It is also semi waterproof but does come off easily with the calm cleansing milk which I have been using and LOVE.

Fitglow Beauty Review: Final Thoughts:

Before I finish up with this fitglow beauty review, I just wanted to mention about their packaging first. I love that everything is kept very clean with the design, by using a pump for the products. This not only looks appealing, but also serves a greater purpose in that it keeps things sanitary too. This ensures your product (which is delicate) is not compromised at all.

Ok, that wraps up my Fitglow beauty review! I hope that you found it helpful and maybe brought to light a new line that you hadn't heard of or tried yet. As always, my opinions are always my own and all products were either samples or purchased with my own money.

This recipe slays... since you've posted, I've made variations on it at least four times. Going to make it again for dinner tonight.

Made this recipe for my boyfriend and I on Halloween! It is the perfect fall dish. It is easy to make vegan, nut & gluten free if you use gluten free pasta and do the sunflower seed substitute. My non-vegan boyfriend loved it so much they have asked me to make it again! It is so creamy & has the perfect crunch with the sage and pumpkin seeds.

Hi Marnie! You could use about 3 to 4 tablespoons of nutritional yeast instead of parmesan.

Absolutely LOVE this recipe - it's delicious (especially for those that like a hint of spice)!! My finance and I are obsessed and it's become part of our weeknight recipe rotation. It has a limited number of ingredients, it's quick to make/cook, but despite all of that - looks and tastes like much more time was spent! Thanks for the great recipe Jaclyn!

I made this yesterday and HOLY MOLY it hit the spot!!! It’s been so hot and muggy out here, so I was craving something light, cool, and filling. This recipe did not disappoint. The flavor of the peanut sauce was delicious. It had been a while since I prepared something with such color and flavor, which made eating it that much better. I will definitely make this again and try your other recipes too!! 😍🙏🏻❤️

Hi Henrik! Thanks for letting me know you made them. Depending on the size of your food processor, it can be a lot to pulse all at once, so maybe working in batches is better. I'm glad you liked them and they firmed up for you :) Enjoy the rest!

Yep, they firmed up nicely. I'm freezing four, and looking forward to having the other four, dressed with sauerkraut, pickles, mustard, vegan mayo, onions, banana chiles, and maybe even ketchup. Yum!

Well I ended up baking them for 23 minutes (@400F). They're delicious! A bit soft, but I'm hoping they'll firm up when they cool. Texture is good too. Thanks for this!

Seems like a good and tasty recipe. But I had to add a generous half cup of water to get any kind of movement in the food processor. I substituted flax seeds for hemp (what I had). The mixture was a bit loose because of the water, but still formed nicely into patties. Baking for 15 min at 400F. Looking forward to them!

Hi Roxanne! So for the meatballs photos with feta, I just used regular olive oil. But for the one photo with the red looking oil, that was olive oil mixed with fried green onions and Aleppo pepper. I have that recipe in full on my Instagram account - if you head over there, you'll see it - https://www.instagram.com/p/CbQXM2IlH4L/.

Hi! The topping on your whipped feta looked delicious. It appeared to be more than olive oil. Or maybe an infused olive oil? Do you mind sharing that recipe? I can’t wait to make this recipe. Appreciate the tip on room temp feta.

Make these now! Once you buy your ingredients, this is the easiest recipe to execute...it's so hands off! I started the beef in the instant pot an hour before we wanted to eat and prepped the toppings while all of that was cooking. I used stewing beef and a home-made taco seasoning. I didn't have any beef broth so I used half of a bouillon cube - worked just fine! The enchilada sauce was store bought (Frontera brand) and it was delicious. Highly recommend the Monteray jack cheese - I used some Violife mozzarella that I happened to have at home but I can see how the sharp taste would add to the overall flavour.

Hi Carolyn! I'm so glad you are loving my recipes, thank you so much for taking the time to let me know. I don't provide nutritional information as it doesn't align with my brand or how I personally choose to live my life, having had a disordered relationship to food in the past. I hope you understand :)

I love your recipes and have tried them! What would be GREAT is if you could include the nutritional value with calories. It would be beneficial to those of us trying to lose weight. Thank you, Carolyn

Just made this for my family today. I can’t have gluten or dairy but they can and this got a RESOUNDING stamp of approval! Love the simple ingredients and it tasted fabulous! Thanks for such nourishing recipes ❤️ 😊

Thanks for this! I came across this recipe very late in life, at a family meal. I liked it better than my mother's potato salad of my childhood, and better than my sister's which came from her in-laws. DH likes it very much. Win, win, win! Tip: if you don't want to steam up your summer kitchen nor fight the mosquitoes for the grill, pressure cook the potatoes!

Don’t sleep on this wing recipe. It is soooo good! I can see this being a staple for game days, casual dinners or honestly…any day. Such a crowd pleaser as well. Oh and please don’t skip the dip. It’s unreal stuff! I was grabbing random things in my kitchen to eat it with once the wings were done.

The simplest recipe to make a delicious desert! I left out the cacao and just made vanilla coconut flavor and it was heavenly. I plan to add different flavors in the future; cacao with Orange or raspberry essence, vanilla salted, caramel flour de sel- the options are endless. Glad to find a keto friendly treat that can be made easily at home.

These were good! I've been curious to try making a miso dessert for a little while now, but wanted it to be grain free. I've found that almond flour based chocolate chip cookies always have some kind of nut butter, and since I just use peanut butter, it's like a PB cookie. The miso did a great job replacing nut butter and achieved a great, chewy consistency! It's definitely strong, although I'm sure white miso would have been more mild. I used dashi miso, which in hindsight sounds pretty gross.. the cookies were not at all fishy tasting, but just bold and kind of salty/savory. I think next time I'll try a little less miso. I have a tendency to use less sugar than a recipe calls for, but I definitely needed it in this one to balance the miso flavor. I just used regular butter too, not ghee.

This is the first cinnamon roll recipe i've actually gotten to work! I let the dough rest in the fridge for 4-5 hours and then rolled and filled it, then let it rest in the fridge over night and it worked great for an early morning bake. I looked through the whole recipe and you never mention what temperature to bake at. It just says "place in your preheated oven to bake" I baked at 350. Also it would be really nice if the caramel sauce recipe was included here. All in all totally delicious, worth the effort, and I will be making this again.
