A HollyWood Secret Now in The PhilippinesSaturday, January 04, 2014
And what a good venue like the New-York-style 71 Gramercy in Manila, to hold this unveiling.
GLAMGLOW® was originally designed for exclusive professional backstage use in Hollywood. In 2011, GLAMGLOW became available to consumers worldwide and is now known as one of the hottest brands in skincare. Known for fast-acting and innovative mud treatments, their patent-pending formulas combine real pieces of leaf with high-end technology to "deliver instant, visible results."
"A few friends where gathered together at Glenn & Shannon’s home in the Hollywood Hills overlooking Los Angeles, when an actor friend commented that he could not find a product that made his skin instantly camera ready, instantly reducing pores, instantly dealing with sun damage, instantly dealing with fine lines, instantly producing a noticeable glow that would last for days. This became a topic of conversation with Glenn & Shannon Dellimore and the other actors at the house. The verdict was unanimous, there was no convenient easy-to-use skincare product specifically designed for immediate and instant camera-ready skin.
With the handful of willing well known actors as test subjects, Glenn & Shannon Dellimore set out to create a product just for their actor friends, not for sale to anyone, not for retail to anyone and not limited by any production costs.
After much research, Glenn & Shannon started to formulate the product in their home, but the economy had just crashed two weeks after they had bought their house and just a few months before they were due to have their first baby, the last thing they needed was to spend $80 on buying ingredients for providing free little samples for friends.
They decided to do it and worked with a chemist to create the ‘magic mud’. After hand filling the product on their coffee table in their living room they handed out the samples to their four actor friends, a week later they all came back saying ‘wow, that stuff really works’ and asking for more for themselves and other actor friends. The little sample product containers had no name and no packaging, yet was soon being requested by executives of major studios and other actors.
A price was set for the small plain white sample containers and a small family factory sourced to make their magic mud. With increasing requests Glenn & Shannon began to sell the ‘no name’ magic mud to Hollywood studios, who provided the product to sound stages for use by actors and their make up artists. A year went by and their product was being used on-set all over Hollywood.
One evening the phone rang and the Vice President of a major luxury retailer was on the line… “A friend of mine gave me your product to try and the results blew me away, I have my buyers on the phone too and we would like to retail your amazing product alongside the world’s most luxurious brands…”
During the event, it's founders wanted us to try this product. I swatched the two muds (masks!) on my arm and initially, I already sensed how natural the products are. The white one has real green tea leaves and the black one is really pure volcanic mud with its color and texture.
® Technology, is GLAMGLOW’s proprietary continuous time-release technology, delivering fresh ingredients into the mud from the real pieces of leaf contained in their masks. The white one called Super Mud for example, has Eucalyptus leaf while the black one for brighter softer skin has Green tea.
My initial thoughts? Red-carpet material! I will review this in detail and I'm really excited to share this with you.
