How One Customer Wanted to Look Younger and Ended Up Looking Worse Than Ever. But Here’s How Glow Fairy Helped…

    The other week, the Glow Fairy team received an amazing email from a customer who thanked us for SAVING them with the Glow Fairy Retinol Glow Wand. We weren’t sure what they meant, but after we read about her terrible experience trying to diminish her crow’s feet with injections, we knew exactly why she was reaching out.

    Her name is Donna Gale, a school teacher from Boise, Idaho, and she’s been a Glow Fairy customer for over six months now, but it’s what happened before she became a customer that really blew us away. We reached out to Donna and wanted to find out more about her harrowing experience. She explains,

    “Obviously, we all age, and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. But that doesn’t mean you don’t want to try and keep those pesky crow’s feet and smile lines at bay as long as possible, right? And that’s what I wanted to do. I had wrinkles around my eyes for as long as I can remember, but recently I started to really notice them, and decided to finally do something about it.”

    Like many women approaching their 50s, Donna started looking at non-invasive surgeries and fillers that could help boost her collagen and keep her eyes and face from sinking any more than it was.

    “I did my research and found a doctor nearby that offered injection fillers for a pretty cheap price. That was probably my first mistake… finding a DEAL on injections. Oh no.”

    Donna received two injections, one on each side of her face.

    “The results are pretty instantaneous, and I was very happy with how they filled out both areas where I typically have crow’s feet. The wrinkles were almost completely gone.”


    “Unfortunately, a few hours later, I started to feel a burning around my eyes. I figured it was just a side effect and went to bed.”

    And the next morning…

    “I woke up and looked in the mirror, I couldn’t believe my eyes, literally!”

    Donna had experienced a reaction to the fillers that made her eyes swell and burn.

    “I looked worse than I had before the injections! I didn’t know what to do!”

    Donna rushed to the doctor’s but there was very little they could do. They could give her some allergy medicine to help with the swelling, but for the most part, time was the best cure.

    “It took months for the fillers to go away, and when they finally did, my wrinkles were MORE noticeable. The added stress from having a swollen face for months was awful. I didn’t know what to do.”

    “I was pretty down and out since the injections fiasco and was feeling pretty apprehensive to do anything to try and fix my crow’s feet. I didn’t want to waste any more money OR my beauty.”“But then I was with my best friend, who I trust with my life, and she looked amazing. Seriously, like 10 years younger. I made a sly comment like, ‘At least your injections worked,’ and she told me it wasn’t injections but The Glow Fairy Retinol Glow Wand.

    “She said she would swipe it on every night before she went to bed. After a few weeks her skin looked tighter and her fine lines were greatly reduced. I, of course, didn’t believe her. But then she showed me the before and after photos. Week by week the fine lines and wrinkles became less noticeable all together! Maybe The Glow Fairy did work after all. She gave me the secret 50% OFF code, SECRET50, and I ordered my own Glow Wand immediately.

    Donna received the Wand in the next few days and started applying every night. The application is quite easy, if you’re wondering! Simply, open the Glow Wand and swipe!

    For best effectiveness, make sure your face is clean and dry. Do your nightly routine and leave the Glow Wand for last. Warm up the balm a little by rubbing onto your finger or the edge of your eye for an easier swipe. Then, apply the balm around the eye, on the sides and under. You can also apply to laugh lines, and even around the brow at the T-zone. Leave it on overnight and viola!

    When it comes to retinol, you can’t expect results immediately, it will take a few weeks to notice any change. And it’s always important to understand HOW and WHY a product works (before you end up getting bad injections like Donna!)


    Of course, in Glow Fairy’s Retinol Glow Wand, there’s retinol, which helps neutralize free radicals in the skin and encourage the production of collagen. The rich source of vitamin A is so effective in helping boost collagen that it’s almost the only ingredient needed. But we did an amazing thing of adding the extra punches with some of these other ingredients…


    Another amazing ingredient that’s naturally found in the body. Hyaluronic Acid is used by the body to retain water in the skin. And, as we know, moisture and hydration is essential to healthy, ageless looking skin. That’s why Hyaluronic Acid is so popular in beauty products.


    Not many people are aware of how amazing this ingredient is for your skin. It helps remove dead skin cells from the skin to reveal the soft, more youthful tissue underneath. So when you’re looking for that more youthful glow, it’s not retinol doing the work. It’s Allantoin.


    Allantoin with a combination of this ingredient, stearic acid, is your ultimate duo for cleaning the skin and giving you that extra glow. While allantoin removes dead skin cells, stearic acid, removes excess oil and dirt that regular cleansers can’t get to. Really awesome stuff!


    The last ingredient I was so happy to see in the Glow Wand was beeswax. A lot of retinol creams forget that too much retinol can damage the skin but making it very sensitive. You need something to protect against that. Buzz buzz buzz hello beeswax! Beeswax is a natural protector, it creates an antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-viral barrier that will help keep your skin safe!

    So, finally, after 4 weeks, Donna decided to check the results…

    “Honestly, I was AMAZED. The crow’s feet had diminished and even my smile lines were less noticeable. I was so pleased! And that’s when I decided to email Glow Fair and THANK THEM. This is one of the best beauty products I’ve ever used… and I’ve tried everything. No more fillers for me, only Glow Fairy!”

    Thanks, Donna! Now that she’s a Glow Fairy fan, we hope you will be one, too!

      Hey! Just a reminder to my fellow sensitive skin-users, retinol is STRONG! So if you have sensitive skin, try using this every other day at first and wear that SPF!
