My first glow up brought to you by GloBody By Jenn. Not gonna even lie guys, when she reached out to me about a glo, the only thing I thought was, hey, black girls don’t tan but boy was mistaken. In fact, a glo is amazing on brown skin and just makes are melanin pop even more. It gives a nice bronzy glo to the skin and it’s exactly what I needed to pop on camera for my pageant last weekend. By the way, all the deets on my pageant coming to the blog later this week.
So, how does this glo body business work anyways. Well, Jenn operates a mobile service so it was easy peezy for me as she dropped by the house for my 20-minute glo session. Yup, it only takes that long.
Rule #1: wear dark clothes you really don’t care for.
Rule #2: the less clothes you wear, the more glo coverage you get. In my case, I stripped down to just a black bathing suit bottom and some pasties to cover my girls. If you’re not comfortable with nudity, this is not the glo for you. FYI, Jenn was an absolute gem about it. She sees nake bodies for glo sessions on a regular, so it wasn’t uncomfortable or awkward, she really understands and is just a lady on a mission to make that skin shine.
So, the glo takes about 24 hours to really activate and get the skin popping for that glowy, dewy effect. With that being said, you can’t shower or sweat for 8-12 hours if you’re seeking best results. I would suggest showering before your glo application. As you can see from the pics, she set up this cool black tent, you stand in it on these foot stickies and then it’s time to get your glo on. The glo is a spray machine contraption, when she sprays it is a little chilly at first, but it’s nothing compared to eyebrow threading or these other painful things we do to get dolled up.

So, as you can see, this was only day one and my skin glo is already popping. With proper daily skin moisturization, your glo application can last up to 1-2 weeks. It’s normal for it to run off in the shower within the first few days, but for me, I went back to regular no glo in about a week and a half, just enough glo for my pageant, and chilling with my bestie in NY for the week (check my IG and IG stories for deets on that).
Anyway, I want you to glo on with me so contact Jen at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their website: www.spraymobibletanning.com and tell them I sent you for 10% off your first glo application. Hint Hint 😉 it’s mother’s day and a gift like this would rock her world, just saying.
See you back here later in the week for deets on my nationals pageant.
Till next time.
