Leaves me with an orange tinge on my lips…

I love this lip balm but it leaves an orange tinge on my lips ( I’m fair skinned with pinky lips and the yellow tone leaves my lips orange.)
I love the sun protection it provides and the coverage just wished it didn’t look orange….

Mini Sample Deodorants
Terri L. (Calgary, CA)
Love this size…

I have been purchasing these mini deodorants for the last few years. They’re easy to toss in your bag and always have on hand if you need a refresh. I love them for travelling as they’re small and easy to carry on.

I love all the scents that I tried. I do get 24 hours plus coverage, while my previous natural deodorant is 12 hours. The application goes on a little crumbly, but I’d want to rub it in anyway. This could be due to the small trial size applicator.

Perfect!

It's perfect and I love it, thanks! It glides on smoothly (unlike the slightly chalky, chunky ones I made)! The tint is really nice; subtle but enough pigment to make my pale, kind of bluish lips look like nice normal lips!

Best lip balm out there!

It’s smooth, smells great, not oily, and long lasting!

Deodorant - Naked (Unscented)

deodorant

I first learned of Glowing Orchid products from the creators at the Women's Fair at the Tradex Centre.
The inventors, a male and female, impressed me with their joy and belief in their product and made my first purchase of unscented deodorant. I am pleased with not being "stinky" and so I continue with your successful product.

Deodorant - French Vanilla
Jennifer M. (Sidney, CA)
Best Natural Deodorant

I have been using this product for years- I first found it at a spa in Prince Rupert. When I first made the switch to natural deodorants I tried many others that would cause redness/rash under my arms. This is the first one that I have had no reaction to and after you go through the ‘detox’ phase when you initially jump ship from regular deo options, you do not smell at all! Love this product, I buy 6 at a time that lasts me all year. Lime mojito is my favorite!

Ultra Glow Bundle
Ami H. (Amsterdam, US)
Glowing bundle

This stuff is amazing! Great way to try new products & find new favorites. Beautifully presented, if I hadn’t ordered this for myself I would have been proud to present such an attractive package to my friend. I am really enjoying the facial toner and the whipped body butter

C
Restorative Mouth Drops
Cheryl (Burns Lake, CA)
Wonderful

So very happy with these mouth drops! My mouth and breath feels so clean and refreshing. I like adding a couple drops to my floss the best, they are strong and a little goes a long way. Try them, you won’t be disappointed!

Works great

This dry shampoo powder works great, and I really love the subtle natural fragrance that leaves my hair feeling refreshed. I took a chance and ordered the one for dark/black hair, (I have mousy brown hair that would be considered medium blond) the dark option blends in perfectly with my shade of hair. If there was an in between option, I would rate it a solid 4.5/5, the only reason I couldn’t give it a full five stars is because there is a tiny bit of a gritty texture that feels present throughout the day. Overall, I really like it, it works great and I would order this product again

Light And Effective Moisturizer

I have used this cream for a few days. It's very light and nongreasy. I put it on my eyelids and it didn't cause any irritation or breakouts, instead it was soothing. It is concentrated, so I only needed to use a little every day. I will definitely purchase again.

Original Formula

Glowing Orchid for life!

I’ve been using the deodorant for almost 5 years now, and I will never go back to using any other brand. It works so well and smells delish!

Deodorant- Baking Soda Free Formula
Stephanie (Montreal, CA)
Best deodorant I've ever used - please don't ever stop making it!

I have very sensitive underarms and use the baking soda free formula in Lime Mojito. It is by far my favourite deodorant I've ever used. No irritation! No redness or bumps! Keeps odour away for 24 hrs! I recently tried a different brand (also baking soda free) and by the second day I had redness, bumps and angry pits. I've been using Glowing Organics deodorant since 2020 and I will never stray again. Haha.

Deodorant - French Vanilla
Diana (Orlando, US)
Smells so good!

Hands down the best deodorant I’ve ever found. Smells soooo good. My two favorite scents are French Vanilla and Peppermint Vanilla

Another great product

It’s so hard to find a perfect body butter that hydrates and absorbs into your skin without feeling greasy. This one is actually perfect. Very hydrating and the coconut and vanilla smells like heaven. Great customer service and fast shipping even to the US. Love their deodorants too- more than any other company I’ve found. I’ll be a customer for life

Amazing product!!

This stuff works so well and smell fresh all day !! Wish I would have found it sooner just placed a second order , highly recommend!

Amazing color and moisturizing!

My new go to in my bag! Keeps my lips moist and the color is perfect- not too muted and not too bright, perfect for everyday! Thank you for making such a great lip product!

Fantastic!!

I absolutely love this deodorant. It is super effective with a very subtle scent. The baking soda free formula does not irritate my skin at all! Best deodorant ever!!

Left a review on their website. 5 stars!

Restorative Mouth Drops

Wonderful!

Love the mouth drops. They not only make my mouth feel clean, but I've found that with anything like a canker sore or accidental cheek bite, they aid healing very quickly.

Deodorant - Earth Synergy
Mark L. (Perth, CA)
Love this deodorant!

Hands down the best deodorant I've ever found. No need to reapply during the day, and you don't need to use a lot. I bought two scents after buying samples. Will definitely be buying again!
