It’s never a bad time to enhance your skin’s glow. Glowing skin appears healthy, radiant and moisturized — and it makes you look and feel more attractive.
If you haven’t heard already, French-based skincare company Typology’s Illuminating Vitamin C Glow Drops are perking up parched skin and winning over hearts all around the globe, one pearly-finished complexion at a time. The illuminating vegan product, which adds a sheer radiance through light-reflecting minerals, sold out just two weeks after it dropped in late 2022. Then, it apparently established a 9,000-plus person waitlist.
Infused with vitamin C and aloe vera, Typology’s Glow Drops can be used to brighten up foundations, skin tints and BB creams, but they can also be used with moisturizer alone. People like how the product makes their skin look fresh and natural without feeling overdone.
The company claims the liquid concentrate will provide an immediate glow and keeps your skin radiant over time. It recommends mixing the product with your moisturizer or a tinted serum, and not going to bed with makeup on (which is a practice dermatologists have long warned against).
Watch the glow drops work their magic on TikTok beauty reviewer @rudiberry’s video below.

User KD found it to be exactly what she was looking for.
“This is lovely UNDER my light foundation!! Also use it more liberally in the evening if going out to a bar-type thing where it’s a little dark,” they said. “Absolutely gives me that glow!!”
