» Rodial Glamtox Night.

This new night cream from Rodial was released recently and I was fortunate enough to have the chance to try it out. It's called 'Glamtox Night' and is a serum that you apply nightly before bed.

This is what Rodial Say ;
The Glamtox Night is a revolutionary night treatment that quickly fades hyperpigmenation, reduces pore size and plumps the skin while you sleep. The ground breaking formulation gives skin a radiant and youthful glow.
 Improvement in overall sun damage and pigmentation
Improvement in crows feet wrinkles and fine lines
Resulting in a clearer complexion and brighter skin tone

They call this an 'Overnight Facelift'! Sounds impressive, huh? .. It contains a gentle Retinol that will resurface the skin and thicken and plump the skin whilst reducing pore size. The skin will gain an energized and radiant glow come morning. glamtox night also works to strip away hyperpigmentation creating a light and bright skin tone.

When I read all of this I was excited, so excited I shared it with my boyfriend who just pulled a face. These are impressive claims though, and I couldn't wait to get using this!
It comes packaged in a lovely silver box, and inside there is the jar (as above) which is also silver and very glam looking. I spent ages trying to get a picture of it, without you seeing me with my camera in the mirrored jar! .. 

Anyway, back on topic,  the jar is really glam looking and it has a pump inside the lid that you press down to dispense the product.. I didn't realise this at first and just whipped the whole lid part off and smeared it all over my fingers. I don't recommend that anyone do this, you don't need much of this to covers your face and neck, and I ended up wasting some. Luckily I figured out the pump thing the next evening.

So anyway, the cream itself is a light serum, pale yellow in colour and slightly floral scented. It soaks into the skin nicely and as I said, you don't need much product to cover your face and neck.

Did I see results? .. Yes and no.. When I wear this to bed I definitely wake up with lovely glowing skin, which feels and looks plump and refreshed. I can't comment on the hyper pigmentation part as I don't really have any. But the main thing I was hoping for was an improvement in my pore size, and I think I have seen a small improvement .. But it is only small, and I have also recently started using a clarisonic when I started using this, so maybe they are working well together to battle this!

All is all this serum is an absolute luxury to use and it really does leave my skin feeling so smooth and lovely, but I'm not sure it lived up to my expectations from what it promises. It does leave my complexion looking bright and healthy but I'm not sure I would pay the £88 price tag just for that.. Not when other, cheaper products can do the job.
