Nestle Glowelle Beauty Drink to launch at Neiman Marcus

Beauty Cred on 9 Aug 2008 at 8:46pm

Nestlé Co. has decided to join the bandwagon of companies (such as Murad, Perricone, Dr. Brandt, Kinerase and Borba) that have introduced a dietary supplement for beauty. This September, Nestle will launch a beauty drink called Glowelle, which will contain antioxidants, vitamins, and botanical & fruit extracts.

According to Nestle, a daily serving of Glowelle (which will come in juice and powder packet form) helps delay aging by hydrating the skin from the inside and out. Furthermore, Dr. Susan Beck, the scientist and nutritionist for research and development on Glowelle, says that the juice form spells less work for the digestive system, making it easier (compared to pills and capsules) to obtain the benefits of dietary supplements.
Aquafina has recently introduced its own line of nutrient-enriched dietary supplement beverage, called Alive, that comes in four flavors. Alive Satisfy, a peach-mango flavored variant with 10% daily value for  fiber and lightly fills up with 10 calories.

At $7.00/bottle, is Glowelle worth it?

I just took a sip of my free sample and nearly gagged. Seriously. It tastes like plastic with fruit infused into it. Now I need to find something to wash the god-awful taste away. My husband caught a whiff of it and ran away, saying, "Make the smell go away!". I kid you not.

LOVE IT! friend of mine gave me a packet and it makes you feel alive instantly! it feels like your cells are regenarating and waking up. My clients norticed the nect day, complimenting on my make up(which was the same). Im in the beauty industry and have tried numerous drinks and potions, but rest assure - this WORKS, almost instantly! Just ordered my 30 day supply and cant wait till I get it!

I received my kit today and tried one. Got to say the taste isn't all that great but I gave it a try anyway. Will see.

I have been drinking it for 6 days and this morning I really noticed my face clearing up. I like it. Can you get it anywhere else besides NM?

Does anyone know if Glowelle or the other beauty drinks listed have collegen? The one I drink does along with long list of antioxidants and vitamins. We don't have a NM around so I haven't tried Glowelle.

I started drinking it 3 weeks ago, and I feel more energetic. My skin is also softer and several of my friends said that my makeup looks great, but it is the same makeup. My salesperson at NM said that to drink only half, so I just bought another 30 day pack with a 7 day pack as a gift, and by drinking only half, it will last me for 74 days, not bad for the price of a generic cup of coffee.

This drink could be worse - it could be Steaz green Sparkling green tea with sugar as the second ingredient and real green tea at the bottom of the list.

Interesting comment on Steaz, love that stuff since first finding it @ Whole Foods in SF..the ingredient listing shows they use organic cane juice (not typical bleached refined sugar) and the tea they use are organic tea leaves and not the tea syrup that people like Snapple and others use, thus it weighs a lot less...with a full cup of green tea in each bottle, Steaz seems pretty healthy to me and tastes great.

Actually glowelle has 50 calories per serving, and has way more antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals than ANY beauty drink on the market. I prefer the raspberry jasmine flavor, and its best when shaken well with ice cold water. I've found these things through trial and error. I would drink it if it tasted like dirt, its been 4 days and my skin is already softer, which I didn't experience with borba OR perricone.the way it makes me feel is reason enough to drink it once a day...I love it! You should give it another try!

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS STUFF! i just started taking it yesterday and i had a serious hangover. i felt better after taking it, so i know it really is doing good things for me, not just my skin, which is an added benefit. today i felt happier, light, and fresh. i had more energy and i just felt GOOD! i would take this even if it didnt give me flawless skin. my friend noticed softer skin after taking it every day for 5 days. and if you get the 30 day supply, it comes out to $3.73 a day, which is cheaper than starbucks. starbucks doesnt give you antioxidants and improve your looks, does it? caffeine actually makes your skin look WORSE. i will definately be an avid user of glowelle, im getting all my friends hooked on it too!

I just picked up a months supply for $112 to test it out from NM. It seems easy enough and with the amount of skin damage I have at the age of 32 (no use of sunscreen :( I think this might help boost my overall glow.
