Glow Hub Beauty describes itself as "skincare for the next generation". It is a UK based skincare brand and all products are designed and made in the U.K.. It targets those in their teens to early 30's.


Glow Hub Beauty is famous for offering simple targeted solutions. They keep it simple to choose which skincare product to use by categorising their products into four main colour -coded categories, which are:

  1. Calm & Soothe: light green packaging

  2. Nourish & Hydrate - light orange packaging

  3. Purify & Brighten - lavender packaging

  4. Core Essentials- white packaging

In addition, they also have "boosters" that are called "Acid Serums" and "Scar Slayers". The branding is simple and clear as you can tell from the names of each range and the colour coded packaging.


I really like the box packaging as well. Everything you need to know is set out in clear and simple language - no over the top scientific explanations. The box packaging is made from recycled paper.


All of the Glow Hub Beauty products are Vegan; Cruelty Free; and Dermatologically Tested.


In Australia, they can be purchased from https://stylepatisserie.com/

They are very reasonably priced for the amount of product you get. The most expensive product retails for AUD34.


My picks from Glow Hub Beauty's Calm & Soothe range


The Calm & Soothe range uses hemp & jojoba for stressed_out skin + redness.

There are currently 6 products in the range.

Review of The Glow Hub Beauty Calm & Soothe Gel To Oil Cleanser
The Glow Hub Beauty Calm & Soothe Gel To Oil Cleanser

The Glow Hub Beauty Calm & Soothe Gel To Oil Cleanser transforms from a cooling gel to oil. I like to use this as my first step in a double cleansing routine as oil cleansers are effective in removing makeup, sunscreen and impurities. It has an interesting texture that is rather. novel. It turns from a gel into an oil on contact with damp skin. It leaves my skin feeling soft and soothed. This is an AM/PM cleanser.


As you will see from the Ingredients list below, the formula is simple. Hemp oil is good for acne prone skin as it works to balance out oils and works to controls excessive sebum production to keep the skin's moisture levels balanced.

I also like that it has jojoba in it as jojoba is known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.


There is a very faint scent to it - a bit like coconut. You can barely notice the scent unless you are specifically "looking" out for it.


The packaging is cute. It has a rounded bottom, so it stands on its cap.


The ingredients are:

HELIANTHUS ANNUUS (SUNFLOWER) SEED OIL, SILICA, GLYCERIN, PRUNUS AMYGDALUS DULCIS (SWEET ALMOND) OIL, CANNABIS SATIVA (HEMP) SEED OIL, SIMMONDSIA CHINENSIS (JOJOBA) SEED OIL, SUCROSE LAURATE, SUCROSE STEARATE, PARFUM (FRAGRANCE), AQUA (WATER), SUCROSE PALMITATE



Review of The Glow Hub Beauty Calm & Soothe Toner Essence
The Glow Hub Beauty Calm & Soothe Toner Essence

The Glow Hub Beauty Calm & Soothe Toner Essence is great if you have dry and irritated skin. It is so soothing! I have some really painful cystic acne and other irritated red patches. This really helps to calm them down, It takes off the remainder impurities after double cleansing. I like to store this in the fridge for an extra soothing experience.


It has a very light scent (similar to the cleanser) and smells a bit like aloe vera. Aloe is the second ingredient in this product. Aloe is known for its healing and soothing properties.


I like the pump packaging. It helps with reducing waste.


The ingredients are:

AQUA (WATER), ALOE BARBADENSIS LEAF JUICE, POLYSORBATE-20, GLYCERIN, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, SALIX ALBA (WILLOW) BARK EXTRACT, SODIUM ASCORBYL PHOSPHATE, JOJOBA WAX PEG-120 ESTERS, PHENOXYETHANOL, CANNABIS SATIVA (HEMP) SEED OIL GLYCERETH-8 ESTERS, PPG-26-BUTETH-26, PEG-40 HYDROGENATED CASTOR OIL, SODIUM GLUCONATE, CITRIC ACID, PARFUM (FRAGRANCE), BENZYL ALCOHOL, BENZYL BENZOATE, BENZYL SALICYLATE, CI 19140 (YELLOW 5), CI 42090 (BLUE 1)

The Glow Hub Beauty Calm & Soothe Face Mask Stick

The Glow Hub Beauty Calm & Soothe Face Mask Stick


I adore this Calm & Sooth Face Mask Stick. This uses a twist-up packaging. The stick format is so easy to apply and it helps reduce waste as well. If I want a quick soothing mask treatment, I find myself reaching for this very often. It uses the soothing qualities of hemp and jojoba as its main actives.


This is a kaolin clay mask which is good as it kaolin clay helps draw out impurities. Also it has castor oil and aloe vera to help soften and calm down and moisturise the skin. This is a. definite winner for me. I love clay masks but I don't like that it leaves my skin feeling tight. This Cam & Soothe Face Mask doesn't do that at all.


It also has a faint smell, like aloe and castor oil. This scent quickly dissipates.


The ingredients are:

ALOE BARBADENSIS LEAF JUICE, GLYCERIN, KAOLIN, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, TITANIUM DIOXIDE, SODIUM STEARATE, HECTORITE, JOJOBA WAX PEG-120 ESTERS, CANNABIS SATIVA (HEMP) SEED OIL GLYCERETH-8 ESTERS, PHENOXYETHANOL, POLYSORBATE 20, PEG-40 HYDROGENATED CASTOR OIL, PARFUM (FRAGRANCE), ETHYLHEXYLGLYCERIN, SODIUM GLUCONATE, BENZYL BENZOATE, BENZYL SALICYLATE, CI 19140 (YELLOW 5 LAKE), CI 42090 (BLUE 1 LAKE)

Glow Hub Beauty's Purify & Brighten range

My picks from Glow Hub Beauty's Purify & Brighten range

  1. Purify & Brighten Jelly Cleanser

  2. Purify & Brighten Pore Rescue Toning Pads

  3. Purify & Brighten Moisture Lotion

  4. Purify & Brighten Face Mask Stick

The Glow Hub Beauty Purify & Brighten range uses blueberry & black tea to help combat breakouts. There are currently 7 products in the range.



Review of The Glow Hub Beauty Purify & Brighten Jelly Cleanser
The Glow Hub Beauty Purify & Brighten Jelly Cleanser

The Glow Hub Beauty Purify & Brighten Jelly Cleanser is a fun and effective product.. I really like the jelly texture.

This jelly cleanser builds up to a slightly foamy cleanser on contact with damp skin. This is an AM/PM cleanser.


Like the Calm & Soothe cleanser, this also comes in an "upside down" bottle. It has a round bottom and stands upright on its cap.


It uses antioxidant_rich blueberry and detoxifying black tea to help with breakouts. It also leaves the skin looking matte.


The scent is very very faint. A bit fruity. This left my skin feeling squeaky clean and a bit tight. I had to quickly apply a mist. I found it to be quite effective in controlling acne.


The ingredients are:

AQUA (WATER), COCAMIDOPROPYL BETAINE, GLYCERIN, PEG-7 GLYCERYL COCOATE, POLYSORBATE 20, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, POLYACRYLATE CROSSPOLYMER-6, PHENOXYETHANOL, SACCHAROMYCES/ XYLINUM/ BLACK TEA FERMENT, VACCINIUM MYRTILLUS (BLUEBERRY) FRUIT EXTRACT, PARFUM (FRAGRANCE), SODIUM GLUCONATE, HYDROXYETHYLCELLULOSE, POTASSIUM SORBATE, SODIUM CITRATE, SORBIC ACID, CITRIC ACID, BIOTIN, CI 16035 (RED 40), CI 42090 (BLUE 1)


The Glow Hub Beauty Purify & Brighten Jelly Cleanser


Review of The Glow Hub Beauty Purify & Brighten Pore Rescue Toning Pads
The Glow Hub Beauty Purify & Brighten Pore Rescue Toning Pads

The Glow Hub Beauty Purify & Brighten Pore Rescue Toning Pads are convenient pre-soaked toner pads that are meant to help with both visible pores and breakouts. I'm slowly transitioning to re-useable cotton pads, but I do like toner pads like this if I cam travelling or having a weekend away. Each pad is rather thin and has texture to it. There are 35 pads in the tub.


This is a treatment that you use once or twice a week. It can be used AM/PM but I prefer to use it at night. If you use it during the day, please wear a sunscreen.


It has a light pleasant citrus scent. On my hypersensitive skin, i did feel a bit of a tingle but it soon went away.


I felt that it was a good exfoliator. It uses blueberry and black tea extracts to detoxify & purify, and also added white willow bark + salicylic acid (both known for their anti-breakout properties).


The ingredients are:

AQUA (WATER), ALCOHOL DENAT., POLYSORBATE 20, PEG-40 HYDROGENATED CASTOR OIL, SALICYLIC ACID, CIMICIFUGA RACEMOSA (BLACK COHOSH) ROOT EXTRACT, VACCINIUM ANGUSTIFOLIUM (BLUEBERRY) FRUIT EXTRACT, CAMELLIA SINENSIS (GREEN TEA) LEAF EXTRACT, PHENOXYETHANOL, PEG-7 GLYCERYL COCOATE, GLYCERIN, PARFUM (FRAGRANCE), SODIUM CITRATE, CITRIC ACID, SODIUM HYDROXIDE, ETHYLHEXYLGLYCERIN, ALCOHOL, POTASSIUM SORBATE, SODIUM BENZOATE, TRISODIUM EDTA, CITRAL, GERANIOL, HEXYL CINNAMAL, LIMONENE, LINALOOL

The Glow Hub Beauty Purify & Brighten Pore Rescue Toning Pads

Review of The Glow Hub Purify & Brighten Moisture Lotion
The Glow Hub Purify & Brighten Moisture Lotion

The Glow Hub Purify & Brighten Moisture Lotion is a light moisturiser. It has a blueberry/lemony bubble gum scent which i quite like and would appeal to teenagers.


I felt that it made my skin look brighter and also more matte. You use this AM/PM and before applying sunscreen. It absorbs into the skin fairly quickly - I like that about this moisturiser. It doesn't feel tacky or oily. It works well under makeup.


It uses Squalane which is very compatible to our skin's own natural oil. The blueberry extract helps to balance skin and the black tea extract is. good for detoxifying and purifying the skin.


The ingredients are:

AQUA (WATER), HELIANTHUS ANNUUS (SUNFLOWER) SEED OIL, GLYCERIN, CETEARYL ALCOHOL, SHEA BUTTER ETHYL ESTERS, POTASSIUM CETYL PHOSPHATE, BUTYROSPERMUM PARKII (SHEA) BUTTER, GLYCERYL STEARATE SE, SQUALANE, VACCINIUM MYRTILLUS (BLUEBERRY) FRUIT EXTRACT, SALICYLIC ACID, SACCHAROMYCES/ XYLINUM/ BLACK TEA FERMENT, ALUMINIUM STARCH OCTENYLSUCCINATE, CETYL PHOSPHATE, XANTHAN GUM, AMMONIUM ACRYLOYLDIMETHYLTAURATE/VP COPOLYMER, TOCOPHERYL ACETATE, POTASSIUM HYDROXIDE, PARFUM (FRAGRANCE), SODIUM GLUCONATE, SORBIC ACID, HYDROXYETHYLCELLULOSE, PHENOXYETHANOL, POTASSIUM SORBATE, SODIUM CITRATE, CITRIC ACID, BIOTIN, BENZYL ALCOHOL, CITRAL, HEXYL CINNAMAL, LIMONENE

Review of The Glow Hub Beauty Purify & Brighten Face Mask Stick
The Glow Hub Beauty Purify & Brighten Face Mask Stick

The Glow Hub Beauty Purify & Brighten Face Mask Stick is another favourite of mine. It really helps with breakouts and I love the twist-up format. I often find that I waste mask products if I use my hands/brush. This way, the product is applied directly onto the skin without any waste.


This mask is meant to be used 1-2 times a week. I've used it as often as 4 times a week and saw only benefits and no irritation to my hypersensitive skin.


This is also a kaolin clay based mask, which helps draw impurities. In addition to the antioxidant_rich blueberry and Salicylic acid + White Willow Bark (which help address breakouts). It is quite easy to remove.


The ingredients are:

ALOE BARBADENSIS LEAF JUICE, GLYCERIN, KAOLIN, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, TITANIUM DIOXIDE, SODIUM STEARATE, HECTORITE, SACCHAROMYCES/ XYLINUM/ BLACK TEA FERMENT, SALIX ALBA (WILLOW) BARK EXTRACT, VACCINIUM MYRTILLUS (BLUEBERRY) FRUIT EXTRACT, SALICYLIC ACID, PHENOXYETHANOL, POLYSORBATE 20, BUTYLENE GLYCOL, PEG-40 HYDROGENATED CASTOR OIL, BENZYL ALCOHOL, ETHYLHEXYLGLYCERIN, HYDROXYETHYLCELLULOSE, SODIUM GLUCONATE, SODIUM CITRATE, CITRIC ACID, POTASSIUM SORBATE, SORBIC ACID, BIOTIN, CI 77007 (ULTRAMARINES), CI 77499 (IRON OXIDES)


The Glow Hub Beauty Purify & Brighten Face Mask Stick

My pick from Glow Hub Beauty's Nourish & Hydrate range

My pick from Glow Hub Beauty's Nourish & Hydrate range


The Glow Hub Beauty Nourish & Hydrate range uses peach and coconut. Peach extract is very hydrating and coconut water is especially nourishing because it contains a lot of vitamins and minerals.

The Glow Hub Beauty Nourish & Hydrate Serum Mist

The Glow Hub Beauty Nourish & Hydrate Serum Mist is a good introduction to serums as it comes in a convenient mist format. It does have a peach scent to it. The nozzle could be better. Instead of a mist, I feel this is more of a spray. It does feel refreshing and good on the skin.


It also has glow_enhancing hyaluronic acid in it. I love products with hyaluronic acid.


This can be used AM/PM and you apply it before your moisturiser for an extra hydration hit.


The ingredients are:

AQUA (WATER), PROPYLENE GLYCOL, POLYSORBATE 20, SODIUM HYALURONATE, PRUNUS PERSICA (PEACH) FRUIT EXTRACT, COCOS NUCIFERA (COCONUT) FRUIT EXTRACT, PHENOXYETHANOL, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, GLYCERIN, ETHYLHEXYLGLYCERIN, PARFUM (FRAGRANCE), SODIUM GLUCONATE, POTASSIUM SORBATE, SODIUM BENZOATE, SORBIC ACID, CITRIC ACID, BENZYL ALCOHOL, BENZYL BENZOATE, GERANIOL, LINALOOL, CI 16035 (RED 40), CI 19140 (YELLOW 5)


My pick from Glow Hub Beauty's Core Essentials range

Review of The Glow Hub Beauty Zip Zap Wand
The Glow Hub Beauty Zip Zap Wand

The Glow Hub Beauty Core Essentials range comprises of an anti-acne zap stick, a polish/exfoliator scrub and lip balms.


The Glow Hub Beauty Zip Zap Wand is a spot treatment for breakouts. It is a roller-ball stick. This only works for light breakouts or when you start to feel a bump forming - you have to apply this as soon as you feel that bump for it to work.


It doesn't do much for deep cystic acne which is what i typically get. This didn't work as well as I hoped. The formula is very gentle. I've used other roll-on acne treatments which use tea tree oil which worked better for me, You are meant to use it a couple of times during the day, but I only used it during my AM/PM skincare routine.


Its actives are papaya extract and salicylic acid for exfoliation. It has tea tree oil for anti-bacterial properties. They have included hyaluronic acid to help with acne scars.


I think it would have worked better if I kept applying it through-out the day. The roller doesn't dispense much product and I found that I had to keep rolling it over my spots (which was painful already to start with) and that irritated my spots more.


The ingredients are:

ALOE BARBADENSIS LEAF JUICE, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, GLYCERIN, PPG-26-BUTETH, BUTYLENE GLYCOL, SODIUM ASCORBYL PHOSPHATE, SALIX ALBA (WILLOW) BARK EXTRACT, MELALEUCA ALTERNIFOLIA (TEA TREE) OIL, SALICYLIC ACID, CARICA PAPAYA (PAPAYA) FRUIT EXTRACT, PEG-40 HYDROGENATED CASTOR OIL, POLYSORBATE 20, BENZYL ALCOHOL, XANTHAN GUM, SORBIC ACID, CITRIC ACID, POTASSIUM HYDROXIDE, SODIUM GLUCONATE, SODIUM BENZOATE, POTASSIUM SORBATE, CITRONELLOL, GERANIOL, LIMONENE, LINALOOL
