We've just taken the latest shade of Vitiliglow™ down to Workbridge - ready to fulfil your orders. If you've been waiting for Vitiliglow™ in the Dark shade, then it's available now to order from the Vitiliglow™ store.
Vitiliglow™ Dark is available in both 100 ml and 30 ml bottles. This shade is designed for people with dark skin and/or a deep complexion.
To order Vitiliglow™ in Dark:
If you've found your Tan shade of Vitiliglow™ is a little too light for you, you might want to add in some of the Dark shade to help you to get the correct shade to suit your skin tone. And remember, you can add a darker shade to a lighter shade to give you the correct level of coverage if you have darker pigmented skin during the summer or after a holiday, or for any parts of your body that are darker than others.
If you're not sure how to apply Vitiliglow™ , then read my blog post here, or take a look at the short video I have put together to help you get great results.
If you're already using Vitiliglow™ then we'd love to hear from you. Please send a before and after photo and a few words about how you've found Vitiliglow™ to firstname.lastname@example.org as it's great to feature success stories on the What our customers say page.
Founder of Vitiliglow™
Since I launched Vitiliglow™ in 2014, I’ve been very lucky to receive some amazing support from not only my lovely customers, but from a number of people in the public eye. I won the Sun on Sunday Fabulous Magazine ‘Michelle Mone Mentors’ competition in 2014 and appeared on Dragons’ Den in 2015. Throughout all that time, I’ve had the support of the lovely Dean Edwards, who's been the resident chef on ITV’s Lorraine show in the mornings since 2010.
You may not know that Dean’s had Vitiligo for a number of years, most noticeably on his hands. Dean’s job involves creating wonderful dishes, where his hands are filmed at very close proximity and then appear - in high definition – in homes up and down the country. During filming, Dean uses Vitiliglow™ to cover his patches. It was only very recently, after more patches started to appear on his face, that Dean chose not to cover up all the time, which led to an outpouring of comments (not all positive) about his ‘fake tan fail.’
Dean revealed to Lorraine Kelly that he had Vitiligo and that he’d covered his patches for years, who admitted she had no idea that Dean had Vitiligo. You can read more about the story here.
Firstly, I’m delighted that Dean has opened up about his Vitiligo and raised awareness of the condition. Dean has written a very heartfelt blog post about not only the condition and how it has affected him, but also about how important it is to be aware of how you speak to people on social media. Secondly, I’m so pleased that Dean has used Vitiliglow™ so successfully for years that Lorraine Kelly (and the nation) had no idea that he had Vitiligo!
I’ve talked about this in my blog before, but I only ever want people to use Vitiliglow™ to help them improve their confidence if having patchy skin gets them down. I’m so pleased that Dean is using Vitiliglow™ when he needs to and has felt confident enough in himself to show his patches off to his fans and the nation. I’ve been so grateful for Dean’s support so far and pleased that he’s flying the flag for Vitiligo and bringing awareness and compassion to people’s attention.

If you follow me on Instagram, you'll see that TV Chef Dean Edwards has tagged Vitiliglow ™into a great video clip called "Things not to say to someone with Vitiligo." I've had Vitiligo for 20 years now, so I've heard them all - my favourites being "is it contagious" and "does it come off in the shower."
The aim of this clip is to be lighthearted, but it does show the impact Vitiligo can have on people and how tiring it can be to explain why you look a little different all the time.

I hope everyone is having a good summer and enjoying the good weather. I am sorry that I’ve been a bit quiet on here recently - there’s been a lot of work going on behind the scenes. But, I’m so pleased to be able to tell you that Vitiliglow™ will be ready to order in two shades – Light and Medium - by the end of July.
Although this is a bit later in the summer than I had originally planned, we now have the most AMAZING product available to help us cover our patches. We have started working with a new supplier to create the fantastic new formula and packaging. As you all know, I want the product to be the very best it can be, so I’ve worked hard with the manufacturer and his team to source materials from across the world to create the formula, worked with them to design the new and improved bottle and packaging. Every time I have launched a new version of Vitiliglow™ I have taken on board the feedback from customers and worked hard to improve it. I hope that you will all be as happy with it as I am.
When will it be ready?
Soon, you will receive an email with a link on it to the store. Once you're on the store page, select either Light or Medium and add them to your cart. I am expecting the delivery of Vitiliglow™ to Workbridge by the end of the month.
Why are only medium and light shades available?
Because the formula is so intricate, we need to use very specific raw materials to achieve a realistic, natural shade that will blend in with the pigmented and depigmented skin. It has taken us a while longer to source the correct materials for the darker shade, therefore Tan will follow. I am genuinely sorry that I can’t provide a Tan shade at the moment, but I felt it was better to provide light and medium shades as soon as possible for those that needed it.
What’s changed this time?
Although I was delighted by the previous Vitiliglow™ from last year, this one is EVEN BETTER! It applies like a serum, leaving skin smooth and silky and is very hard wearing. The drying time is even faster, allowing you to apply the product in the mornings and then get on with your day without waiting ages for the product to dry. My vision was always for people to be able to use Vitiliglow™ daily to cover their patches if they wanted to, and I’m so pleased that I’ve been able to achieve this.
What else do I need to know?
How do I order?
Once you receive the email, visit the store page of my website www.vitiliglow.co.uk/shop and select the shade you need.
I’d like to thank you all for being patient with me during this difficult time. Your feedback is always valuable to me and has helped me to get the product this far – so thank you to everybody that has got in touch with me to tell me how Vitiliglow™ has helped them or provided suggestions to help me improve the product. It has been very challenging at times, but I’m now confident that Vitiliglow™ will continue to help people to be happy in their own skin.
