I've had a lot of direct messages since the orders for Vitiliglow™ started to come in last week, so I published a post on Facebook yesterday (Thursday 17th August) and thought I'd put it up on my blog so that you can find it easily without scrolling through Facebook! Here's the latest information about your orders and a few tips and advice about the new formula.
We'd like to thank everyone for their recent kind words of encouragement and continued support. Workbridge UK are busy sending out orders so if you placed an order for the new formula medium shade then as soon as it's been dispatched you'll receive an email with a tracking number on it.
Please don't worry if the medium shade isn't 'dark' enough for some areas of your face/body. In September we'll be releasing the other shades in the range and you'll be able to order a 30ml bottle of another shade to mix with the medium. I personally mix together half medium and half tan shades in the summer as my pigmented skin is darker. In the winter when my skin is at it's palest I use the medium with a tiny bit of tan mixed into it. You can view some of my top tips for applying Vitiliglow™ here.
Like any new product I advise you to always do a patch test first and then have a couple of practice runs to get use to the feel of the product and it's drying time. I've been using the new formula for quite a while now and I have to say I'm so pleased with it. It feels like a silky cream when applying it and when it's dried it looks so 'natural' (not cakey or make-upey) and I actually forget I'm wearing a full body camouflage cover. I go to the gym most days and it's stood up to sweaty body combat classes!
My Vitiligo has spread extensively now and I have completely white hands and feet. I apply Vitiliglow™ to my hands and up my arms to my next lot of patches. When I've been to the loo, I wash the palms of my hands with soap and water and then rinse the tops of them with water only - that way Vitiliglow™ stays on them all day - no need to re-apply. I apply Vitiliglow™ to my feet and then up my legs towards the patches on my leg. I'm wearing flip-flops and strappy shoes at the moment and it's a great feeling to look down at my feet and see that they're now the same colour as my legs.
I hope this is of some help to you and I look forward to hearing how you're all finding Vitiliglow's new formula and packaging. All feedback is welcomed and as you all know I take it all on board in order to continually make improvements so that we have the best possible product to help us all re-gain our confidence and feel comfortable in our own skin again.
Polly and the Vitiliglow™ team.
