Hiya bellas, I thought I’d drop in here today and talk about some more Glamglow products. Now, this is where some of you are like ‘Yayyy I’ve been waiting for a review to know if it’s worth it to purchase’ and the others are out here like ‘Oh gosh not another glowing PR review of a product she got sent’.
